Asus launches the new ROG Strix GL12CM gaming desktop PC at CES 2018. This is a configurable system based on the Intel Coffee Lake platform and dedicated Nvidia GeForce 10 series graphics card.
With sharp lines, stealthy design and a 27-liter chassis that seeks to minimize the amount of space, the new Asus gaming desktop PC is optimized to ensure optimal dissipation of the internal components, both for those who choose liquid dissipation than the air one.
Inside it, there are several options for cooling fans of 120 and 90mm, while from the aesthetic point of view the manufacturer offers a side panel in steel with an option for an acrylic replacement. If you opt for the latter, the user will be able to enjoy the full RGB internal backlighting, which can be managed with the Asus Aura Sync software.
Coming to hardware, Asus offers an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU, overclocked to 4.8 GHz and coupled with a microATX motherboard (unknown model), Up to 64GB of 2800 MHz DDR4 RAM, Nvidia GeForce 10 series GPU (max GTX 1080) and various storage options (NVMe SSD, Intel Optane, SSD SATA, etc.), with hot-swap support for SSD (on the front panel).
There is also support for standard ports such as USB 3.1 gen 2, Gigabit LAN, WiFi AC and ALC1150 audio combined with Nichicon capacitors as well as Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar software.
At the moment, Asus has not talked about the ROG Strix GL12CM price. Obviously, a parameter will be affected by the chosen hardware configuration.
