CES 2018: ASUS Announces the ROG Spotlight

Starting with the Asus ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition, it packs an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics. Designed for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gaming, ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics and features a 120Hz IPS-level display with a 100 percent sRGB color gamut. That case has a transparent side window for ogling the fancy stuff on the inside.

The ROG Strix GL12 is a powerful desktop created to provide the best performance for gamers. As a reward, League game designers have crafted champion skins named after and inspired by SKT T1 team members, but it's the first time that hardware has jumped into the mix. It will be available Q1 2018 with a price announced upon launch. The top-shelf ROG 703 laptop with the high-end 144-Hz G-Sync display is available now for a princely $3499.

ASUS has not yet announced pricing for the ROG Strix GL12, but it will ship in April. You'll find dedicated media keys, a volume wheel, and USB pass-through for connecting another peripheral (like a gaming mouse).

We haven't mentioned Asus in our CES 2018 coverage so far but as usual the Taiwanese PC systems and components giant has a bountiful selection of new goodies to share in Las Vegas.

The ROG Strix Flare is an RGB backlit mechanical gaming keyboard that uses Cherry MX RGB switches. The light show runs in concert with Asus' Aura Sync illumination control utility so buyers can coordinate the blinkenlights on the GL12 with the diodes in their Asus ROG gaming headsets and monitors. This new ROG themed accessory also allows for full rotation (360°) meaning placement easy to get the right positioning for you.

Finally, there's the Bezel-Free Kit accessory, which attempts to "visually eliminate the gaps" in a multi-monitor setup. The ROG Spotlight can also be teamed up with the new ROG Aura Terminal which is essentially a quad channel addressable RGB controller.

Since the kit uses no power or special tools beyond the magic of light refraction, it is compatible with a wide variety of monitors of different brands and sizes.

Rounding out Asus' new stuff is the ROG Spotlight, an accessory that looks like a webcam but instead projects Asus' ROG logo onto a wall or other surface. The Spotlight has a matte-black aluminum finish and features a magnetic base for easy placement onto a metal surface.

Washington has made it clear that all options, including military ones, are on the table, but it prefers a diplomatic solution. The missile test in November led to a meeting between the UN Security Council where they approved new sanctions.
