ASUS has introduced the world’s first and fastest ROG Swift 360 gaming monitor with a refresh rate of 360 Hz. Along with this, ASUS has also launched new gaming laptops in the ROG Zephyrus and TUF series, all powered by Ryzen 3rd gen mobile CPUs at CES 2020.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 And Zephyrus G15
The ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 packs in a display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and an insane 240 Hz respectively. Both the laptops are powered by Ryzen 4000 H series mobile CPUs along with (up to) NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU.
The Ryzen 4000H series processors are based on the latest Zen 2 architecture that is designed on the 7nm manufacturing node, promising excellent performance. Well, the Zephyrus G14 features an updated ultra-slim design that comes in two color options: white and grey, while the Zephyrus G15 is a simple spec update to last year’s GA502 design.
ASUS TUF Gaming Laptops: CES 2020
ASUS launched 4 new laptops under TUF Gaming; the 15-inch A15 and F15, and the 17-inch A17 and F17. All TUF Gaming laptops feature AMD Ryzen 3rd gen mobile CPU’s along with (up to) NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU.
The laptops feature an updated design that leans hardcore in the gamer aesthetic and the options for high refresh rate screens have been introduced with 144Hz on the 15-inch models and 120Hz on the 17-inch models.
ASUS ROG Swift 360: 360Hz Refresh Rate
Along with laptops, ASUS also introduced the ROG Swift 360 gaming monitor with a refresh rate of 360Hz (only if 240 Hz is not fast enough for you). When compared to other slower 240Hz monitors, the ROG Swift 360 refreshes 50% faster. Well, getting into the specs, the display is FullHD and comes at a size of 24.5 inches.
According to the company, the display is not based on any breakthrough technology, instead of the challenges that ASUS faced involved ensuring that the other factors like pixel response time and backlight timing were not affected with the ultra-fast refresh rate.
