The Iron Man-inspired ASUS ROG GT51 gaming desktop was first revealed last year, winning the 2016 CES Innovation Award, as well as the iF Design Award. Now ASUS reveals the newly-updated 2017 ROG GT51 gaming desktop! Check out what’s new!
The 2017 ASUS ROG GT51 Gaming Desktop Revealed!
Let’s start with a presentation on the 2017 ROG GT51 by Louis Lu (ASUS Product Manager).
And here is a quick look at the 2017 ASUS ROG GT51 gaming desktop up close. The exterior looks exactly the same as the 2016 model – it’s the internals that have been changed.
Full Core CPU Overclocking
The 2017 ROG GT51 is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor that ASUS has aged for 40 hours, and overclocked by 14%. With their Turbo Gear feature, you can enable full-core overclocking without having to reboot the system. The ASUS Hydro Overclocking System ensures rock-solid stability during overclocking.
The 2017 ROG GT51 supports up to two NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics cards in SLI to deliver smooth, stutter-free 4K UHD gaming at over 60 fps!
Fast Memory & Storage
The 2017 ROG GT51 comes with the fast DDR4 memory, the latest NVMe PCI Express SSD, and the new USB 3.1 ports.
Advanced Cooling System
The 2017 ROG GT51 boasts a multi-zone thermal solution that decreases system temperature by up to 31%, even under the heaviest of loads. The CPU is liquid-cooled, while the GPU has a dedicated air channel. The power supply unit, found in the bottom corner of the chassis, features its own isolated airflow design.
Customisable 8-Million Colour LED Lighting
Dynamic light effects illuminate the case, including the iconic ROG logo and twin side-light strips. You can even customize the RGB LEDs on the air intake with any of the 8 million colors! And when you overclock ROG GT51, the dramatic OC lighting mode is activated.
The wearable ROG BAND lets you access Shadow Drive — a hidden storage space for keeping your personal and confidential data safe. You can also use ROG BAND to activate the overclocking mode.
