ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has just announced the ROG GR6 ultra-compact desktop, a console-inspired 2.5-liter PC with supreme gaming performance. GR6 features a matte-black finish, Mayan-inspired detailing, and a pulsing ROG logo. It is ideal for gaming in the living room or bedroom, and is portable enough to take to LAN parties.
Enhancing the gaming experience
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. Sonic SenseAmp automatically adjusts the built-in amplifier to match headphone impedance for pitch-perfect sound. Sonic SoundStage lets users tailor in-game audio settings to any game genre; it even works with SteamOS without the need for any additional software.
To help users get the most out of its incredible audio hardware, GR6 features a powerful collection of audio solutions, including Sonic Studio, and Sonic Radar II. Sonic Studio is a tuning suite that features one-click Virtual Surround for 7.1-channel audio, even on 2-channel stereo headsets. It even lets users control Reverb, Bass Boost, Equalizer, Voice Clarity and Smart EQ settings as well for amazing sound.
Sonic Radar II gives gamers an added gaming advantage, allowing them to detect opponents through an onscreen overlay that shows the relative origin of gunshots, footsteps, and other sounds. Intel Gigabit Ethernet gives better throughput without putting a strain on processor resources, and is a feature greatly appreciated by gamers worldwide. It has improved transmission control protocol (TCP) and user datagram protocol (UDP) performance, doubling the speed of similar technologies for small online game packets for lag-free online gaming.
GameFirst III provides lag-free gameplay by prioritizing game packets and allocating more network bandwidth for games. It features four preset packet priority modes, along with a manual setting to give users total control over their network. A built-in Network Monitor tool helps manage network traffic and test connection speeds.
Easy-upgrade design and exceptional cooling performance
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.
Optional gaming-grade reinforcements
ROG GR6 comes with the optional ROG Gladius mouse and M801 keyboard or the ROG Sica mouse and RA01 keyboard bundles, to ensure users get the most out of their games. 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 also comes with a one-year full Kaspersky Anti-Virus license for thorough, real-time protection against virus and malware attacks.
