Game in style with Republic of Gamers (ROG)

"But can it run Crysis?" — this question has plagued gamers for so long and so terribly that it ended up being a running joke in the gaming community. And if you used to game on your laptop, then the concern was quite real.

Well, those days of stumbling with your laptop are long gone. And with focus on gaming in mind, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has brought in a number of laptops that will meet your every whim.

For all latest news, follow The Daily Star's Google News channel.

Let's start with the ROG Zephyrus G14 first.

People buy laptops because of their mobility above everything else. Then comes the question of style. ROG Zephyrus G14 ticks both of these boxes with flying colours. With a screen size of 14 inches, it's a very slick looking device, offering incredible mobility since it weighs less than 2 kgs. The signature Zephyrus style of a diagonal slash on the lid is still very much present, only this time with a new feature called AniMe.

The AniMe matrix is a dazzling feature that is made of more than a thousand LEDs, allowing you an opportunity of customising the lid. You can put necessary features like system information or time and date on this display. Or, you can show off your taste and groove through audio visualisations or custom texts; even animations. You can make the device truly your own with this striking new addition.

As for performance, it's amazing how this device responds considering how the size has been reduced compared to other devices of similar configuration.

ROG Zephyrus G14 features AMD processors, up to a Ryzen 9, paired with Nvidia's RTX 2060 dedicated GPU. With up to 32GB of RAM available, and SSD up to 1TB, you will have a smooth experience, whether you want to play Cyberpunk 2077, GTA V or Metro Exodus.

If you want a device that's more practical in means of innovation and just as much dashing, if not more, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is more up your alley.

The ROG Zephyrus Duo comes with a secondary screen that pops up at 13-degree angle, allowing a comfortable view.  

What's better than a 15.6-inch 4K high resolution screen? Another screen. And that's exactly what this device offers. The distinguishable 300Hz display, combined with the screenpad (Touch screen secondary screen) makes it worthy of the name Zephyrus, the Greek god of west wind and the messenger of spring. If any device deserved the name Zephyrus, it has to be this one. 

The ROG Zephyrus duo is powered by an Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia's RTX 2080 dedicated GPU. With up to 1TB SSD allowing Raid 0 storage and up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, this device offers a sleek performance that matches its outlook. Packed with such an impressive specification, we dare say that indeed it can run Crysis (even the Remastered one).

The secondary screen is a great addition for people who like to multitask. It's even more useful for in-game chats. Whether you are playing Dying Light 2, CS:GO or Valorant, you can move the real time stats, inventory or mission logs to the screenpad and have a seamless gaming experience. The screen is even more useful for streamers or content creators, allowing you instant access to utility tools, references and even the opportunity to draw.

Gaming on laptops has never been easy. Configurations as well as cooling issues has always been big factors. ASUS aims to change this stereotype with devices that not only matches the required specifications, but gives you a stylish device. Whether you like to keep up with the trends with the AniMe matrix, or you want a more practical feature like a secondary screen, it's your pick.

Gaming is a way of escape for many of us, especially the younger generation. Gaming is only going to evolve with innovative devices. Why not stay up to date with a Zephyrus, as offered by ASUS Bangladesh?
