IFA 2019: Asus Rises From Smartwatch Grave With New VivoWatch SP

Asus just showed off a brand new smartwatch at IFA – I guess it isn’t giving up on smartwatches after all. After releasing the Zenwatch 3 in 2016, it seemed like Asus had quietly withdrawn from smartwatches. Yet today the company proudly touted its new VivoWatch SP – a chic health-oriented wearable that boasts 14-day battery life, and “medical grade” ECG and PPG sensors. Read More >>

IFA 2019: Asus Packed a £4,000 Nvidia GPU Into a Laptop

Building on the success of Max-Q design, its guidelines for slim laptops sporting powerful graphics, Nvidia announced a new reference design today dubbed “Ace.” Reference designs are blueprints for building specific devices with a lot of the engineering guesswork already done by someone else. The Ace reference design promises a (relatively) slim and sleek 15-inch laptop with as much power as possible. Naturally, the company has to show off that reference design with the most eye-catching laptop possible – which is where the new Asus ProArt StudioBook One comes in. This 15-inch laptop has a world-first for laptops. There’s a very powerful and very expensive Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000 GPU inside. Read More >>

Asus’ Wildly Ambitious ZenBook Pro Duo Is the Most Dual-Screen Laptop Yet

Sir Francis Bacon once wrote that “There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” And while I’m not sure he would have felt that way about the new ZenBook Pro Duo, between its cramped keyboard, awkward touchpad location and massive 14-inch second screen on Asus’ latest laptop, I can’t help but feel like that quote applies here too.

Asus’ ROG Phone is the Dumb Fun RGB Handset Gamers Deserve

A lot of people still aren’t convinced gaming phones are something that should even exist. But if there was one phone that might be able to sway peoples’ opinions, it’d be Asus’ Republic of Gamer (or ROG) Phone. In fact, based on some recent corporate shuffling, Asus is so emboldened by the ROG phone that the company is shifting its mobile strategy to focus even more on mobile gaming and high-end users. That’s an ambitious bet, but after playing around with ROG Phone, I have to admit there is a little sparkle to this mobile battle bus. Read More >>
