Asus ROG Mothership
Tech Jan 08 2019
You’ve seen 2-in-1 laptop/tablet combinations before, but the new Asus ROG Mothership is something else entirely. It’s been described as a Surface Pro for gamers or a desktop that you can cram into a backpack. Whatever the Asus ROG Mothership is, it’s nothing if not powerful and beautiful.
As far as power goes, how do 8th Gen Core i9 Intel processors, 64GB of RAM, and an Nvidia RTX graphics platform grab you? When you run your graphics through a 144Hz, 17.3-inch, in-plane switching screen, the display is nothing short of stunning. Gamers in particular will love the Mothership’s 2.5G Ethernet capabilities, 44Hz refresh rate, and 3ms response time.
For maximum versatility, the Asus ROG Mothership features a detachable wired or wireless keyboard with super-fast-firing switches. And for a fully immersive experience, it features a premium ESS Sabre HiFi DAC hi-res audio system that delivers surround sound through four front-facing speakers.
