Which Asus Gaming Laptop Is Right for You? – Laptop Mag – Laptop Mag

Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) line is wide-ranging, offering gamers choices in every level of performance, screen size, portability and price. So which is best for you? A 15.6-inch lightweight machine with a Max-Q design? A 17-inch hulk with a 144-Hertz screen? A budget machine or a super-expensive one? Here’s how to break down the Republic of Gamers lineup.

Asus divides its gaming offerings into two lineups: ROG and a subbrand, ROG Strix. The Strix brand first appeared in 2014 as part of Asus’ graphics cards and headset product lines that target “performance-to-premium” customers. The regular ROG name was kept for premium products.

Today, the ROG Strix line encompasses laptops as well and is generally used for Asus’ less powerful, more affordable gaming notebooks, as well as some esports-focused machines. The more-expensive models maintain the original ROG branding.

Focus on the G’s

Almost every ROG laptop, no matter whether its ROG or ROG Strix, has a G, GL or GX in its name.

The GL series is often the smallest of them, often just over an

The State Of PC Gaming In 2017 – Kotaku Australia

In a year when PC gaming became more multifaceted and complicated than ever, it also popularised a genre — battle royale — with one of the simplest premises imaginable.

As ever, PC remains at the forefront of gaming. Whether it’s the platform’s longtime advantage in the hardware department, its role as a breeding ground for interesting indies that go on to become multiplatform hits, or attempts to solve the mind-boggling logistical problem of theoretically offering nearly Every Game Ever, PC leads so many dances that you’d need to be a human centipede to keep up.

This is part of our 2017 State Of series, a look at how the major consoles, PC, and other areas of interest are doing this year.

But in discussing PC gaming, we also have to consider that, unlike PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, PC is not a monolith. “PC” is a conglomeration of disparate platforms and moving pieces, from Steam’s algorithm-driven digital metropolis to Itch.io’s boundless mum ‘n’ pop shop, from grimy CSGO and PUBG skin gambling pits to equally questionable grey markets like G2A, from games that are their own platform like League of Legends to tiny freeware games that don’t have platforms at all.

A great year in PC gaming for one person can be an abysmal one for another. So I’d be remiss if I didn’t discuss PC gaming on those terms. I can’t be 100 per cent comprehensive here — I’d end up writing a book — so let’s go over the big ones.

Steam

Steam continues to balloon in all directions. While Valve hasn’t released an exact user count in a couple years, it’s safe to say the number still exceeds 100 million, and concurrent user counts just keep going up. The total number of games on

The Winter Nexus Cup ended with the finals going all the way to the seventh game, with X6 coming out of it with a victory under its belt after many hardfought seasons in APEX. But to get there, it had to take down KongDoo Panthera after it climbed through the end of the lower bracket. The lower bracket finals ended with KongDoo Panthera’s 3-1 victory over Element Mystic.

The Nexus Cup Annual Final will pit X6-Gaming against either Kongdoo Panthera or Element Mystic following a series of upsets in the bracket stage. Although the semifinals featured all South Korean teams, two favorites, RunAway and Lunatic-Hai, are out.

The Overwatch League Season 1 has a lot of moving parts to it. Come learn about the teams, structure, payout and more on the ESPN Esports Overwatch page.

Despite how well EM played all tournament, KDP would dominate with DDing back on D.Va and the rest of the team finding synergy together as the members dominated a proper BO5 setting. Primed for a rematch against X6-Gaming, KongDoo had a huge hurdle to climb since X6 had a one-map advantage from the winner’s bracket.
