COMPUTEX 2018 is here and there was a lot of hardware on display, especially in the gaming department. Here’s what we thought was the best of gaming at the d&i (design and innovation) awards at COMPUTEX 2018.
ROG Huracan G21
We’re all about the #PCMasterRace here and the ROG Huracan is a sick-looking compact 13L gaming desktop which can pack quite the punch in terms of hardware. Aesthetically speaking, the Huracan has an edgy look going for it, with “cuts” and “scars” decorating the case. The G21’s cover is magnetically-secured and can be opened to improve airflow into the system. It also gives you the opportunity to showcase the fancy (and customisable) lights the Huracan is packing. The G21 features side panels which can be opened to access the guts of this beast, and the best part is you can upgrade the hardware.
According to TPV Technology group, the Raptor is the world’s first expandable graphic card display. Yes, you read that right. It’s an expansion for your laptop display which comes with its own graphics card. Using a thunderbolt cable, you can turn your tiny laptop screen into a 31.5-inch display, allowing for a better visual experience, especially when it comes to gaming. The semi-transparent back cover is removable through which you can actually see the graphic card. That’s a pretty neat concept.
Draconem RGB Touch
We’re not big fans of putting RGB on everything, don’t get us wrong, we’re not hating on RGB, but most of the time RGB is just a novelty to bring the price of something up. The Draconem RGB Touch is an RGB mouse pad which does have a lot of lighting options and customizability, however, that’s not the only thing that makes it stand out. The Draconem RGB Touch comes with a certified fingerprint sensor which allows you to easily unlock your system, like you might a phone with a biometric sensor.
The Alienware 34 Curved Gaming Monitor (AW3418DW) is a 34-inch (duh), curved gaming monitor. It’s like using a two-monitor (or one-and-a-half if you want to be specific) setup, only there’s no bezel and the curve is seamless and smooth, and not at an odd angle. Mmm, immersion.
The large, 34-inch, 2560 X 1080 WFHD (wide full HD) display also comes with NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology, which supposedly helps with faster and smoother frames and fewer distortions. We’re all for fewer distortions and EVEN MOAR frames.
ROG Zephyrus M
What immediately stands out about the ROG Zephyrus M is its slim chassis, which despite its slimness provides good performance.
The Zephyrus M comes with a hinge system designed to improve air circulation and supposedly provide better cooling for the device. It also comes with a 1070 for all your gaming needs. Which is great considering its slim profile.
