Will probably cost an arm and a leg
We have been hearing about HDR monitors with Nvidia G-Sync support for quite some time now and it appears that these will finally launch in the next few weeks, with Acer and Asus leading the charge.
Geforce Partner Program RIP
Geforce Partner Program is officially terminated, as of last Friday, and it makes Nvidia look guilty as hell. Nvidia - a massively dominating player - has close to 75 percent of discrete market share, but this varies up and down from quarter to quarter. Some report that regulators got involved and started looking at GPP. Once you have 75 percent plus market share in anything, you don't want regulators to knock on your doors.
Asus NovaGo with Snapdragon 835 - it's a hands on review
Hi my name is Fudo and I am an X86 addict. For most of my life I have been using X86 for productivity and I have flirted with Intel, AMD and even VIA (all caps). Now, the new player in town, Qualcomm, offers an ARM instruction, Snapdragon 835 based PC that runs Windows 10. We spent a few days with an Asus NovaGo 2-in-1 machine, and guess what, it works like a charm. You simply cannot tell that this is not based on a traditional Intel Core M X86, based CPU.
In cooperation with Asus
Cooler Master has teamed up with Asus for a new line of TUF Gaming branded products which include a couple of special TUF cases, coolers, and power supplies.
No confirmation on when it is coming
It appears that Razer's Phone and Xiaomi's Black Shark could be getting some competition in the gaming smartphone market from Asus as the company's CEO, Jerry Shen, hinted at such a possibility.
ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI join the party
As expected, since AMD has now officially lifted the NDA (non disclosure agreement) from its second generation Ryzen 2000-series Pinnacle Ridge CPUs and the shiny new X470 chipset, most, if not all motherboard makers have announced their own versions, with some launching more than one motherboard to cover a wider market range.
1080p resolution, 144Hz, and AMD FreeSync support
Asus has released a gaming monitor which targets the budget-oriented market, the Asus VG258Q.
Snapdragon 845 SoC, AI and full screen with smaller notch than iPhone X
Asus made quite a splash at its event at the Mobile World Congress 2018 with the announcement of its own flagship smartphone, the Asus Zenfone 5z, which not only comes with a 6.2-inch full-screen with 19:9 aspect ratio and Snapdragon 845 SoC, but comes at a rather reasonable €479 starting price tag.
Ten new carriers signed too
Qualcomm has managed to get industry heavyweights Amazon and JD.com to start selling its Windows 10 on Snapdragon 835 devices. Microsoft will carry the devices in its retail stores too. At the same time, it locked down 10 world carriers to announce the data plans for such devices.
Available for pre-order in the US
Although it was officially unveiled back at IFA 2017 in August, Asus' Windows Mixed Reality headset has just been officially launched and is available for pre-order in the US.
