ASUS launches ROG, gaming laptop with NVIDIA graphics card

ASUS Computer Hardware and Electronics Company has come up with a gaming laptop packed with NVIDIA’s latest graphics car GTX 960M. The device is named Republic of Gamers (ROG) and measures 0.81-inch in depth. It weighs 4.54 pounds.

The GTX 960M card inside it can deliver “sharp, vivid visuals, high-quality textures and smooth framerates in the most demanding games,” at least according to ASUS. In addition to the video card, you can find a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 512GB SSD under the hood, encased in a typical ROG brushed-metal body with red accents.

The device comes pre-installed with Windows 8.1 and has a 15.6-inch 4K/UHD display, three USB 3.0 ports and an Intel Thunderbolt connection. Plus, it uses the company’s dual-fan cooling system for super slim laptops called ASUS Hyper Cool Technology. It will set you back $1,999 when it becomes available in April. If you want a gaming laptop right now, though, ASUS is also re-releasing a couple of older models equipped with NVIDIA’s new graphics cards today.

First is the lower-end version of the G751 called the G751JL, which comes with the new GTX 965M graphics card instead of the GTX 980M/970M, like you can find inside the former. It costs $1,399, or $100 cheaper than the previous model’s cheapest unit. Finally, the company is updating its GL551 laptops with the GTX 960M cards to release two versions that cost $1,099 and $1,299, depending on their SSDs. All these laptops are (or will be, in G501’s case) available in various retail outlets, but make sure to check out theASUS G-Series website first for more info and a list of stores that where you can find them.
