The new GL504-series notebooks use different chassis, feature better display options, and up to GeForce GTX 1070 graphics. Quite predictably, they are also more expensive than their predecessors.

1 month ago   |   By Anand Tech

Last year Samsung released the industry's first ultrawide 49-inch gaming display which proved that rather exotic products could be quite a success. At Computex, ASUS introduced its own ultrawide 49-inch that targets a more price-sensitive audience than Samsung's model does.
The ASUS VG49V display is based on Samsung's 49-inch curved VA panel featuring a 32:9 aspect ratio, an 1800R curvature, a 144 Hz refresh rate and 3840×1080 resolution. The monitor does not have a quantum-dot enhanced backlighting and does not comply with AMD's FreeSync 2 requirements. Meanwhile, the display does support...

Asus has made itself a household name in motherboards and graphics card, but at Computex 2018 the company is officially entering the world of CPU coolers and power supplies.

That means you can game and charge your wireless mouse at the same time, which is pretty nifty. The Balteus Qi is a 370 x 320mm micro-textured hard surface for...
