Thrilling Visuals. Leveled up.
Experience the new NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics
ROG G20 is now armed with NVIDIA's new flagship GeForce GTX 1080 - the most advanced gaming graphics card ever created. Powered by the new NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1080 delivers up to three times the performance of previous-generation graphics cards, superior energy-efficiency, innovative new gaming technologies, and breakthrough VR experiences. With vibrant colors, 4K UHD visuals – your gaming experience will never be the same again!
ROG G20 comes with NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics for amazing performance and incredible energy efficiency. In product development tests, the GeForce GTX 1080-equipped ROG G20 delivered up to 3X the performance of previous generation graphics cards – so you can enjoy The Witcher 3 at over 70 frames per second at 4K resolution with ultra settings! You can now play games at their highest settings on up to three HD displays. You can even add a fourth display via a HDMI connection – ideal if you want a standalone display for Twitch streams.

The latest M.2 PCIe® Gen 3 x4 SSD gives you data access speeds of up to 2Gbit/s – four times faster than SATA SSDs. This means G20 boots up faster, apps load quicker, and in-game wait times are reduced. DDR4 SDRAM provides speeds of up to 2.1GT/s — twice that of DDR3 1066 — to give you highly stable performance. There's even USB 3.1 Type-C for data speeds of up to 10Gbit/s – twice that of USB 3.0. It is compatible with Type-A ports.
ENGINEERED FOR NON-STOP GAMING
ROG G20 isn't just powerful; it's extremely quiet as well. You won't be disturbed when you leave G20 on overnight to download games, as it runs whisper-quiet at just 22dB at idle - quieter than a typical library.
Exceptional Heat Management
ROG G20 is designed with no visible side exhaust vents to keep the chassis' neat, clean lines. ROG G20 has an integrated thermal design that takes advantage of natural convection, and has a hidden airflow channel that ensures efficient heat management.
The 1cm-wide airflow channel draws air from the bottom of the chassis; while the GPU fan vents hot air out to the back of the chassis. Two additional internal fans and copper pipes further enhance heat dissipation through fins at the top of the chassis. All these little details help in keeping G20 cool and stable during marathon gaming sessions.
ASUS Aura LED Effects
ROG G20 has a bold design that features a matte-black finish, aggressive lines, and Mayan-inspired markings. The chassis has customizable LED effects across three zones, allowing you to tailor them to reflect the feel of the game you're currently playing.
mmersive visuals aside, the best gaming desktops take your gaming experiences further through audio. Sonic Suite employs a unique mix of hardware and audio tuning software to bring you right into the fight. Whether you're using a headset or speakers, you'll be immersed in a world where gunshots ring out, explosions reverberate, and even footsteps become auditory cues on the digital battlefield.
The built-in ESS SABRE HiFi DAC and Amplifier shut out the world and immerse you in incredible sound the moment you put on your headphones. They deliver low frequency sounds at louder volumes, and more detail on the higher end of the spectrum. ROG G20 provides a greater Dynamic Range (DNR), leading to richer and less distorted audio, as well as higher Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) to get rid of annoying noise. You have to hear it to believe it!
Sonic Suite includes Sonic Studio and Sonic Radar to provide immersive gaming audio. Sonic Studio ensures high quality in-game audio, as well as improved streaming and audio recording for perfect voice pickup and noise reduction. Sonic Radar helps gamers detect opponents through an on-screen overlay that shows the relative position of gunshots, footsteps and other in-game sound effects.
ASUS-exclusive Aegis III
The ASUS-exclusive Aegis III application features a user-friendly interface designed to help you monitor the performance and groups all hardware functions and third-party software onto a main dashboard. It helps you track CPU/memory use, download and upload status, and warns you if the system exceeds temperature and voltage thresholds. You can set temperature and voltage thresholds, and leave the system to maintain them automatically. Choose from different LED lighting effects with easy access to the ASUS Aura control panel. Boost Launcher automatically frees up CPU and RAM resources to ensure smooth gameplay.
Intel Gigabit Ethernet with GameFirst IV
Less lag for more wins!
ROG GameFirst IV is designed to help with gaming-related processes and applications. Multi-Gate Teaming combines the onboard 3T3R Wi-Fi with Intel Gigabit Ethernet so you get the most out of your online experience. It helps manage multiple gateway network connections, and assigns connections for every application for super-smooth online performance.
The Smart Learning feature takes note of your most frequently used apps and software, and optimizes network bandwidth and selects the best network connections accordingly. When you fire up a game, it sets the network requirements of all other applications to low priority. And once the game session ends, it automatically allocates the bandwidth to other applications that were previously running in the background. The App Identification function takes note of an unidentified app and sends it to the server for verification.
ROG GameFirst IV also has updated network monitoring tools. The Wi-Fi Analyzer helps find all nearby hotspots; Gateway Information displays gateway hierarchy; and Connections allows users to set preferred path assignments for various applications.
