Our next generation of gaming products was unveiled at the ROG Press Event in Taipei, Taiwan today. The public and press will be able to catch a glimpse of much of the new gear at Computex 2017, which runs from May 30 to June 3. All the latest technologies and products are introduced annually at the show. ROG never fails to deliver exciting innovations, and this year is no exception. Without further ado, let’s take a peek at the newest selection of ROG gaming laptops, monitors, motherboards, and more.
ROG gaming laptops
The ROG Zephyrus impresses with an innovative new design
The delicate balance between portability and power is different for most people, and for every choice there’s likely a sacrifice you’d rather avoid. The ROG Zephyrus is the answer to your conundrum. If you crave gaming power, its 7th Gen. Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics will satisfy your hunger. There's enough juice on tap to pump out better gaming performance than you've probably tasted on a gaming laptop.
If you want all that power harnessed in an ultra-sleek 15" laptop, the Zephyrus is only 17.9 mm thin and weighs in at 2.2kg. The real magic is in the Active Aerodynamic System, which allows the chassis to expand and maximize airflow when you open the lid. How cool is that? Check out our deeper look at the Zephyrus GX501 to find out.
The ROG Strix GL702ZC delivers raw power at the right price
The Strix GL702ZC is the first gaming laptop to feature an eight-core processor, specifically AMD's new Ryzen 1700 CPU. Pair that with Radeon RX 580 graphics, and you have VR-ready performance to go. You won’t find another 17-incher with this much multi-tasking power for the price. Find out more about ROG's first AMD-based laptop in this article.
The ROG Strix GL702VI - The affordable path to portable GTX 1080 graphics
If your motto is go big or go home, you know you can’t go wrong with a GeForce GTX 1080 in a 17" laptop. The Strix GL702VI was created to allow more people to live that dream. Configure yours with an Intel Core i7 or i5 processor and up to 32GB of memory. You can also opt for a 120Hz display and PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD. It’ll be well worth it!
Esports gaming laptops defined by the ROG Strix GL503 and GL703
The new ROG Strix GL503 and GL703 series deliver the best combination of price, performance, and portability. And for the first time, versions have been tailored exclusively for different types of esports games. The Hero Edition is designed for MOBAs, while the SCAR Edition is tweaked for competitive FPS gaming. There's also a traditional version without genre-specific touches.
These ROG Strix laptops are predominantly black with luxurious brushed-metal covers. At the core of each one lies the latest Intel 7th Gen. Core i7 or i5 processor, up to 32GB of memory, and a Pascal-based GTX 10-series GPU. Here's a look at the different designs:

Immerse yourself in fast-paced action with the ROG Swift PG35VQ
Wrap your head around this: the world's first 35" ultra-wide QHD (3440x1440) monitor with quantum dots, HDR, and G-Sync up to an incredible 200Hz. The ROG Swift PG35VQ's gargantuan curved screen and 21:9 aspect ratio will exercise your peripheral vision for immersive action without a VR headset. The bar for realism has reached new heights, as HDR and quantum-dot technology bring graphics that are truer to life than ever before. It's not a complete experience without G-Sync and a fast refresh rate for buttery-smooth visuals, and we've even added Aura Sync RGB lighting to complete your desktop experience. Learn more about what makes this amazing new monitor special right here.
Welcoming the new family of ROG Strix monitors - the XG32VQ, XG27VQ, and XG258Q
Adaptive-Sync, otherwise known as FreeSync, joins the ROG monitor family with the new Strix series. The big daddy of the bunch is the XG32VQ, which stretches its 31.5" panel across an 1800R curve. This has the highest resolution, at 2560x1440, and the refresh rate scales up to 144Hz. The XG27VQ features the same curvature on a smaller 27" screen. Its 144Hz maximum refresh rate is the same, but the resolution is 1920x1080. Speed freaks should pay close attention to the XG258Q, whose flat 25" 1080p panel would look ordinary were it not for the insanely high 240Hz refresh rate. All three are equipped with Aura RGB lighting, and the XG32VQ can synchronize colors and effects with Aura Sync-compatible hardware. Read more about our new Strix gaming monitors in this ROG article.

Both Intel and AMD have introduced their most powerful consumer processors to date. With more CPU cores and PCIe lanes, plus quad-channel DDR4 memory, these new chips look like they're meant for servers. That's sort of correct, but that doesn't mean you can't use them in a killer gaming rig.

The ROG Strix Fusion shows perfect team coordination

The ROG Scabbard is more than just a mouse pad
The next massive mouse pad from ROG is the Scabbard, the successor to the hugely-popular Sheath. The massive surface area makes it more of a desk mat; let's just say you must have mega-long arms if you somehow manage to run out of space. Crafted out of Cordura Lite fabric, the surface provides responsive tracking, excellent durability, and protection against accidental spills.
Get the edge, the ROG Strix Edge.
Those with limited desk space may have a hard time finding the right mouse pad. The Strix Edge solves the problem with a portrait-style orientation that can also be rotated when needed. Light and rollable, the Strix Edge makes a great portable mouse pad.
