ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced its first interactive experience and an exciting lineup of gaming devices and technologies at the CES 2021 ROG For Those Who Dare virtual launch event. The event marked the debut of the ROG Flow X13 gaming laptop with the XG Mobile external GPU, the dual-screen ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE gaming laptop, Strix SCAR 17 gaming laptop. These latest products and more are available to explore in ROG Citadel XV, an interactive experience introduced during the ROG For Those Who Dare virtual event livestream and available to download for free on Steam.

ROG Citadel XV experience

The ROG Citadel XV experience takes gamers through the ROG Citadel underground fortress, where they'll experience the latest cutting-edge ROG products and technologies being developed. They will be taken to several futuristic Cyberpunk-inspired laboratories to view the new ROG offerings. The lab designs reflect the ROG design language based around the themes of Vanguard, Fusion and Rebel. Once through the fortress, an arcade-inspired first-person shooter mini-game is then unlocked, where participants can test their aim and reflexes by taking down 3D targets moving across the screen.

ROG Flow X13 gaming laptop with the XG Mobile external GPU

ROG Flow X13 is a 13-inch ultraportable gaming laptop powered by up to an AMD Ryzen™ 9 5980HS mobile processor CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics. The company claims, the Flow X13 comes with a battery life up to 10 hours of gaming on a full charge. It also comes with a lightweight, 100-watt USB-C® PD charger that can charge an empty battery to 60% in just 39 minutes.

Flow X13 features a flip design that allows the screen to be flipped 360° for use in various scenarios. The laptop is available with a 120 Hz FHD panel or a high-res 4K panel that’s protected by tough Corning® Gorilla® glass and features a narrow-frame design and support for touch and stylus input. Both choices of display have a 16:10 aspect ratio, support Adaptive-Sync and are Pantone® Validated for superb color accuracy.

Flow X13 can be paired with XG Mobile, an external GPU with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 graphics. When connected, XG Mobile gives Flow X13 a graphical prowess that’s equivalent to full-sized gaming rigs. A proprietary eGPU connector dedicates 63 Gbps of bandwidth exclusively to graphics, resulting in significantly higher performance than Thunderbolt™ eGPUs. An integrated 280W AC adapter is included too, which powers both XG Mobile and Flow X13 so that users don’t need to carry an additional power brick.

ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE

Zephyrus Duo 15 SE featuring the innovative ROG ScreenPad Plus secondary screen, gives gamers the advantage of an extra screen for more usable onscreen space for gaming and productive tasks. The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is powered by up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX mobile processor CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. It comes with either a 120 Hz 4K display with 100% Adobe RGB color space coverage or a 300 Hz FHD display with a 3 ms response time and 100% sRGB color space coverage. Both panels are PANTONE Validated and feature thin-bezel designs and Adaptive-Sync technology.

ROG Strix SCAR 17

ROG Strix SCAR 17 is a gaming powerhouse that can be specified with up to GeForce RTX 3080 graphics and up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX mobile processor CPU. It has up to 64 GB of dual-channel DDR-3200 MHz memory and features new fans and liquid-metal cooling.

Designed as the ultimate portable esports machine, SCAR 17 offers superfast visuals on the world’s fastest laptop display, a 360 Hz FHD panel with a 3 ms response time. An optional 165 Hz WQHD panel combines fluidity with higher detail and a DCI-P3 color gamut. Both options have Adaptive-Sync technology, and ROG engineers worked on reducing the bezel size to offer a larger screen-to-body ratio for more immersive gaming.

The larger 90 Wh battery now provides up to 12 hours of video playback on a single charge, with support for fast charging and compatibility with 100‑watt USB Type-C power adapters.
