Asus Republic of Gamers announces GR6 for Full HD 1080p gaming
Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG GR6 ultra-compact desktop, a console-inspired 2.5-liter PC with supreme gaming performance. GR6 is powered by a 5th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M graphics for Full HD gaming. It features 8GB of DDR3L memory (upgradable to 16GB), and hard disk or solid state drives (SSD). GR6 also has built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi and comes pre-installed with Windows 8.1.
ROG GR6 boasts superior audio and networking hardware and software in its arsenal to give gamers exceptional gaming experiences. SupremeFX, Sonic Studio, and Sonic Radar II work in unison to provide immersive in-game audio, while Intel Gigabit Ethernet and GameFirst III ensure smooth online gaming experiences. Sonic Studio is a tuning suite that features one-click Virtual Surround for 7.1-channel audio, even on 2-channel stereo headsets.
SupremeFX audio delivers immersive sound thanks to a combination of premium components, a design that reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI), and other audio utilities. High-end Japanese-made ELNA audio capacitors provide natural and warm sound reproduction, and render in-game audio effects in greater detail. The analog and digital components of GR6 are isolated and separated from one another to minimize electromagnetic interference.
ROG GR6 features an upgradable design with slide-off covers for easy access to the 2.5-inch HDD/SSD storage and SO-DIMM memory bays. ROG GR6 is whisper-quiet at just 20dB at idle and 28dB when running at full load — perfect for gaming in the living room or bedroom. It runs cool too, with dual copper heatpipes and a large fan efficiently directing heat away from the CPU and GPU for maximum cooling. USB Charger is also enabled on the front USB port of the GR6 to charge mobile devices in half the time, even when the PC is turned off or in hibernate mode. GR6 comes with a one-year full Kaspersky Anti-Virus license for thorough, real-time protection against virus and malware attacks.
