Asus introduces three desktop PCs for gamers, including the compact and powerful ROG Huracan G21. The newly launched ROG Strix GL10 and ROG Strix GL12 also receive increased computing power.
Powerful gaming solutions in desktop format
With the Asus ROG Huracan G21, the Taiwanese company is launching a new desktop gaming PC with particularly compact dimensions. The powerful systems in game console format are already available in several versions. For example, in our eSports bootcamp gaming room, every player has an Asus ROG GR8 II-T074Z PC at their side. The newcomer to this product category, ROG Huracan G21, brings some new features.
Striking design with hinged cover
The trademark of the new Huracan G21 is said to be its unconventional side cover, which is supposed to be folded and folded. Subsequently, the side part can be attached to the housing wall by means of magnets and release the view into the interior, as well as allow a better air supply. The folding cover is supposed to provide a 16 percent higher air supply and 15 percent less heat generation. This will also be desperately needed in view of the installed components, because Asus has far from been greedy with powerful hardware. The handy PC is powered by an Intel Core i7-9700K, plus 16 GB of memory and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics solution. Sufficient storage space is provided by a 1 terabyte HDD hard drive and an additional PCIe-NVMe M.2 SSD with 512 GB of storage.
The two other models are two old acquaintances, which should be even more powerful by hardware upgrade. The ROG Strix GL10CS is now equipped with an Intel Core i7 9700K processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 or 2070, and 16GB of memory. Add to that DTS Headphone: X-technology for immersive surround sound and a smart transparent side window with LED lighting.
The newly launched ROG Strix GL12, with its 27-litre housing and SSD slot with hot-swap function, is designed to appeal to eSports players who value mobility and flexibility. Sufficient performance for more demanding titles, depending on the configuration, provides an Intel Core i7-8700 Hexa (ROG Strix GL12CM) or an i9-9900K Octa-Core Processor (ROG Strix GL12CX). In addition, there is 16GB of DDR4 memory, a HyperStream cooling system and a powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. A 256 GB M.2 SSD is on board, the GL12CX also features a 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.
