Out of all the major brands, ASUS was undoubtedly one notable name with many products to shout about, even before COMPUTEX 2017 had officially kicked off. These products ranged from the myriad of new consumer notebooks, gaming notebooks, and motherboards.
In fact, ASUS’ first event of that week was the launch of its new lineup of ZenBooks and VivoBooks. More specifically, the company unveiled a total of three new ZenBooks and two VivoBooks: the VivoBook S, and the VivoBook Pro.
The three ZenBooks that were launched include the ZenBook 3 Deluxe, the ZenBook Pro, and the ZenBook Flip S, a 2-in-1 convertible Ultrabook that was also the darling of the show.
On the gaming side of things, ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) division also had two very distinctive gaming notebooks to share, chief among them being the new ultra-thin, but powerful ROG Zephyrus. It’s the first ASUS notebook to feature an extremely thin form-factor, but what makes it so special is the all-new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q design that is housed within. Other specifications include a 120Hz Full HD G-SYNC display, an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor clocked 2.8GHz, and up to 24GB of DDR4 2,400MHz RAM.
But notebooks weren’t the only thing that ASUS launched at COMPUTEX 2017. At another (separate) event, the Taiwanbased manufacturer also showed off a new range of X299 motherboards at a special workshop. As you can guess, these motherboards were designed to house Intel’s new Core-X family of CPUs.

Among these motherboards were the ROG Strix X299-E Gaming and Rampage VI Apex. The Rampage VI Apex is a motherboard that is targeted at overclockers, but more specifically, it’s a motherboard that’s designed to work well with LN2 (Liquid Nitrogen) overclocking, or even rarer methods, such as liquid helium. It’s also the quirkiest of all the ASUS motherboards present that day, sporting jagged cutouts on its left and right edges.
The Strix X299-E Gaming, on the other hand, serves as the more affordable option in terms of the other X299 motherboards. It was also the only ATX model of the ROG series, with the Rampage VI Apex and Rampage VI Extreme being E-ATX models.
