Asus Releases Two New Cards: The ROG Strix 1080 OC And ROG Strix 1060 OC To Have Faster Memory

#Asus #ROGStrix1080 – Asus Releases Two New Cards: The ROG Strix 1080 OC And ROG Strix 1060 OC To Have Faster Memory : Recently the GTX 1080Ti was launched to various international markets, and now reports are coming in about an overclocked NVIDIA GTX 1080 and 1060 graphic card. NVIDIA has recently green-lighted manufacturers to use faster GDDR5 memory, and now custom card manufacturers like ASUS are doubling on this.

The result is an overclocked Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 OC and a 1060 OC, both having faster memory than the reference founder’s edition GTX 1080 and GTX 1060. The difference between the new models of Asus ROG and the older models of the Asus ROG is the speed. Other GTX 1080 cards are running at 10Gbps RAM speed, and the new Asus ROG Strix is running on 11 Gbps RAM speed.

Asus has given a lot of thought to cooling, which might mean that the new 1080 might be factory overclocked, considering it comes with the OC badge. As of now, Asus has made no comments about the clock speed.

Asus has given the card three fans for cooling. On top of that, the card comes with an industry first MaxContact cooling solution, which actually makes use of copper heat spreader directly in contact with the GPU. The card also comes with a massive aluminum heat sink and dissipates the heat fairly easily.

The other card in the Asus ROG Strix lineup is the GTX 1060 OC. Once again, it is unclear if the card is factory overclocked. The card has a GDDR5 RAM of 6GB running at 9 Gbps, which is an improvement from the earlier 8 Gbps. This card gets a cooling solution in the form of two fans and Asus’s Direct CU II technology. It also gets an aluminum heat sink and Asus claims it cools the GPU 30% better than the reference GTX 1060.

There haven’t been any news on price or when it will be available, and the cards aren’t on Newegg or Amazon. However, Videocardz.com suggests that the graphic cards might be released by the middle of May.

Asus ZenFone 4 Rumors, Specs, & Features Revealed On GFXBench: Snapdragon 820, 6GB RAM & More [Video]

#AsusZenFone #AsusZenFone4 – Asus ZenFone 4 Rumors, Specs, & Features Revealed On GFXBench: Snapdragon 820, 6GB RAM & More [Video] : Asus is reportedly teased to unleash the next-gen ZenFone 3 successor, dubbed the ZenFone 4, in the coming months. The said upcoming device has been spotted recently on Benchmarking site GFXBench, which reveals about its specifications and features. Asus is reportedly planning to unveil its next-gen ZenFone 3 successor, dubbed the ZenFone 4, in the coming months. Now the Asus ZenFone 4 has been surfaced on a benchmarking site and offers a peek into the specs of the imminent handset.

The GXFBench listing for the Asus ZenFone 4 has been shared by the The Android Soul.  According to the GFXBench listing, the Asus ZenFone 4 is said to feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. The smartphone will be equipped by a quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor, clocked at 2.1GHz and will also support 6 GB of RAM.

Asus ZenFone 4 is listed as housing 64 GB of on-board storage and come with pre-loaded Android 7.0 Nougat. The Asus smartphone is also listed having a 21MP primary camera, as well as an 8MP front shooter, according to Tech Times

This is not the first time when details pertaining to the Asus ZenFone 4 have surfaced online. Older rumors point to the handset touting a smaller 5.2-inch FHD display with a 4850 mAh battery. In January, an Asus device that sported the model number X00GD was also spotted on TENAA, the Chinese equivalent of FCC.

Given the battery size of the model on TENAA, it was believed to be a mid-range smarphone in the Asus ZenFone 4 lineup. The listed smartphone also sported an octa-core Snapdragon processor which was clocked at 1.5 GHz. The X00GD was said to boast 2 GB of RAM or 4 GB of RAM. This smartphone also rumored to feature a 12MP primary camera.

The previous leaked specs for the ZenFone 4 do not match the latest benchmark revelations. However some reports suggest that the new spec hint that the smartphone listed on GFXBench might not be the Asus ZenFone 4, but the ZenFone 3 Deluxe. According to BGR, considering the Asus’ tradition, the company is again likely to launch multiple variants of the Asus Zenfone 4 with similar names.

In the coming days we will get to hear more about Asus latest offering. It is highly doubtful that Asus ZenFone 4 will be announced at the MWC, the end of the second quarter seems much more credible. We are absolutely excited to see what other specs and features will Asus equip its new high-end smartphone with.

The ASUS Transformer Mini is a great alternative to the Surface 3

#Asus #Surface3 – The ASUS Transformer Mini is a great alternative to the Surface 3  : ASUS’ baby Transformer is a worthy alternative to the Surface 3.The venerable Surface 3 is aging, and any replacement is currently MIA. Enter the ASUS Transformer Mini, a similarly compact Windows 10 2-in-1 that also has digital pen support. It’s a highly portable machine that’s designed to be your every day on-the-go companion.

It’s not just a case of cloning the Surface 3, though. While there are similarities, the Transformer Mini stands out in its own right as a worthy alternative.

  • Display:
    • 10.1-inch LED 60Hz display
    • 1280×800 resolution
    • 16:10 aspect ratio
  • Processor:
    • Intel Cherry Trail x5 quad-core
    • 4GB RAM
    • Up to 11 hours battery life
  • Storage
    • Up to 128GB eMMC
    • microSD card slot
    • USB 3.0, Micro HDMI, microUSB

By construction, the outside of the Transformer Mini isn’t the cool metal finish we’ve seen on the likes of the Transformer 3 Pro. That’s not a bad thing, especially given the issues with the paint job on the more expensive sibling. It’s lightly textured, which is great since you’ll be holding this one like a tablet a fair amount. The size and weight are pretty much perfect to use without the keyboard. ASUS did a really nice job balancing things here.

Transformer Mini

And yes, there’s a large bezel. This is where you’ll be holding the tablet.

While the Transformer 3 Pro and the Surface devices have a professional elegance about them, the Transformer Mini looks decidedly more fun. The white back and keyboard are contrasted heavily by orange on our review unit.

The only thing that isn’t so much fun is what you assume is the pen loop. Because you can’t fit the pen inside it and if you just attach by the pen clip it flaps around unnecessarily.

Internally, the Transformer Mini is on par with the Surface 3, in that it’s using an Atom processor and not the much more expensive Core M from Intel. Unlike the larger ‘Pro’ models, the Transformer Mini isn’t pretending it can be your only PC. Instead, it’s a companion device.

ASUS Transformer Mini

The keyboard is a little cramped, there’s no way to get around that, but the keys are once again excellent from ASUS. Personally, I don’t like using a trackpad as small as you find here, but since the display is touch I also find less reason to. It’s not a bad trackpad, and it’s fairly responsive, but due to its size it’s not much use for gestures and such.

But despite the slightly cramped feeling it’s pleasantly good to get work done on. As the keyboard attaches magnetically at the base of the tablet, you get the choice of fully flat or slightly angled, and it’s possible to type for extended periods without much trouble.

And despite the “companion device” nature of the Transformer Mini, you’re not left in the cold for being able to plug things into it when you’re out and about. You get a full-sized USB 3.0 port, microHDMI, and a headphone jack. So it’s limited, but it’s there, and it’s useful.

Transformer Mini

What’s also useful is the built-in, single-touch fingerprint scanner. It’s not the most convenient location if you’re using it folded out, laptop-style, but it’s superb for using with Windows Hello. During my time with it I had no issues with prints being recognized and logging in with just a touch is as good as it sounds.

Transformer Mini

Once you’re logged in you’re looking at a 1280×800 resolution display, and what it lacks in pixels it makes up for in great colors and plenty of brightness. Whites are perhaps the slightest hint too warm, but generally, the display is great to look at, to touch, and to draw on with that pen.

In the box with the Transformer Mini, you get a terrific pen. Just like you get with the Transformer 3 Pro. It’s similar to the Surface Pen in design, in that it actually feels like a pen to hold. With the Anniversary Update on board, you’ve got Windows Ink and it’s a lot of fun, honestly.

With the Transformer Mini being smaller than the Transformer 3 Pro and the Surface Pro 4, it feels more like a notebook to scrawl on. I’m definitely no artist (even stick figures are hard) but using the Transformer Mini with an app like OneNote made me want to write more down this way. Palm rejection is great, and overall it’s an ‘A’ for the digital pen experience.

Transformer Mini

With the smaller size, the Transformer Mini is also a solid device for entertainment. The built-in speaker is pretty awful, so you’ll want either a Bluetooth one or some headphones, but apart from that, it’s all good. The kickstand adjusts through a full 170-degrees, and it’s compact and light enough to hold in portrait to get some reading done.

Transformer Mini

Thankfully it also comes with pretty decent battery life. ASUS claims up to 11 hours and in my testing I’ve been getting anywhere between 7 and 9 depending on use. That’s pretty good, and since it charges over microUSB you can leave for a day on the road with just a cable and a battery pack and not worry about running empty.

Ultimately what ASUS has made in the Transformer Mini is a great alternative to the Surface 3. It’s got some additional features, like the fingerprint scanner, and it has its own style, but equally it doesn’t really break the mold. There’s no USB-C or fancy high-resolution display, hell there’s not even a serviceable pen loop.

But, in a world where Microsoft looks to have forgotten about its smaller 2-in-1, ASUS has picked up the baton and ran with it. While it doesn’t do a lot differently to Microsoft’s own, there’s no reason not to recommend the Transformer Mini if you’re in the market for a 10-inch 2-in-1. It’s superb as a tablet, excellent with the keyboard attached, and a lot of fun to write and draw on.

Asus Announces ZenFone 3 Zoom With 2.3X Zoom Camera and 5,000mAh Battery

#Asus – The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas enjoys massive media coverage, which is why many smartphone makers choose to present their latest products there. One of them is Asus, which made some exciting announcements recently.

Asus officially announced the new ZenFone 3 Zoom smartphone with powerful camera features and a massive battery to keep its lights on. The device is presented as a smartphone “built for photography”, considering that it has a dual-camera setup on the back with a main 12MP Sony IMX362 sensor and 1.4µm pixel size.

The second camera on the back is named “Zoom Camera” and it’s a 12MP unit with 12x total zoom and 2.3x optical zoom. Asus claims that the SuperPixel technology in the main camera has 2.5 times more light sensitivity compared to the iPhone 7 Plus.

n fact, the dual camera setup on the back can be compared to that on the latest Apple smartphone, considering that it employs roughly the same principles of zooming in a practical and efficient way.

The secondary camera has a 13MP Sony IMX214 sensor

The dual-camera setup also comes with laser assisted autofocus, phase detection autofocus and a Portrait Mode which adds “natural depth of field”, but this will be available at a later date following a software update.

The front camera on the smartphone is a 13MP Sony IMX214 sensor with f/2.0 aperture and has a screen flash. Other specs on the smartphone include a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on to, a massive 5,000mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner on the back and 4GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage. The smartphone runs an octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC couple with Adreno 506 GPU and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Asus Zen 3.0 UI on top.

Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom will be made available in three colors, including Black, Rose Gold and Silver. The phone will launch in February 2017, but pricing and availability have yet to be disclosed.

ROG XG Station
ROG XG Station

The ROG XG Station 2 connects to your notebook or desktop using Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps). It uses this bandwidth to drive not just the graphics card, but also a gigabit Ethernet controller, and a 4-port USB 3.0 hub. You can supplement the main Thunderbolt connection’s bandwidth with an additional USB 3.0 (5 Gbps) connection to your host machine. This isn’t necessary, but ASUS claims it will improve performance. The enclosure opens up at a vertical seam like an oyster, letting you easily install your graphics card. The walls of the enclosure are perforated, but a trio of 70 mm fans actively ventilate it. The enclosure also features RGB LED lighting, which can be managed using ASUS Aura software. ASUS plans to sell the ROG XG Station 2 from Q1-2017.

Asus ROG Strix GTX 1050 Ti review

Nvidia’s transition across to the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process brought with it huge leaps for the vast majority of its GPUs. The power hungry GTX 1080showed us that gaming wt 1440p with high refresh rates was possible off a single card, and that 4K gaming at 60fps was almost reachable too.

The GTX 1070 packed the power of a Titan into an affordable price point, and the GTX 1060 provided as much performance as last tier’s first flagship at a cost lower than a good meal out with your extended family.

It was all going so well, clocks speeds skyrocketed well past 2GHz for the first time in stock consumer history, and the progressive advancements across the processors saw CUDA core count shoot up, alongside transistors too.

Alas, it seems the mighty green giant had to stumble up somewhere, and that that somewhere is with the GTX 1050 Ti. Traditionally the X50 series has been an awe inspiring thing of beauty.

Whether that’s the 750 Ti’s powerless design, or the GTX 950’s fantastic price to performance ratio, Nvidia really pushed out those boundaries, proving time and time again you could innovate on the mid-low range just as much as the high end. So what’s so bad with the GTX 1050 Ti that it warrants such a scalding paragraph? Well, let’s find out.

download-8

pecifications

The GPU powering the heart of Asus’s ROG Strix GTX 1050 Ti comes packing a whopping 768 CUDA cores, 48 Texture Units and 32 ROPs. Compare that to the GTX 950 and you’ll see that it also had 768 CUDA cores, 48 Texture Units, and 32 ROPs. But then that’s fair right? It’s a process shrink,; it’s not something you’d expect to change.

We’d be inclined to agree with you if it wasn’t for how Nvidia has specced the rest of its 16nm lineup. A quick glance at how the GTX 1060 evolved this generation and you’ll soon see what we mean. The number of CUDA cores increased from 1024 to 1280, forcing the transistor count to increase by 1.46 billion in the process. Compare that to the 1050 Ti with its meagre transistor increase of 0.36 billion, and you soon begin to understand why this is a problem.

1080p Performance

Take the card out of the ecosystem entirely however, and you’re greeted with a powerful GPU more than capable of tackling the latest games at 1080p Ultra settings comfortably.

In Far Cry Primal we saw average frame rates remain steady at 43 frames per second, while The Division sat at 36 fps, and our more graphically aggressive games Rise of the Tomb Raider and Total War: Attila managed 23 fps respectively. Is it perfect? No, but if you’re on a tight budget, and are looking to upgrade a four-to-five year old card, this could be the one for you

The problem however stems when you look just slightly up the chain at the GTX 1060 3GB. The fact is, you can currently buy a compact GTX 1060 3GB from Inno3D for exactly the same price (£190/$240) as this card, and if you did, at 1080p on average your frame rates would increase by 12 -19 frames per second. That’s a huge difference, and it’s something that really puts us off recommending this card.

1050strix

he memory conundrum

We know what you’re thinking though. The GTX 1050 Ti has 4GB of memory compared to the 1060’s 3GB? Surely that matters for something here? Well honestly, not that much. When testing our titles we noticed frame rates across all three major resolutions varied by 1-3 frames per second when it came to our 3- and 6GB variants of the 1060, and that’s something we can mostly dial down to the 3GB variant’s fewer CUDA cores.

And when it comes to the more memory-intensive titles out there, such as GTA V and Witcher 3, you’re likely better off investing in a more powerful processor anyway, one that comes, by default with 4GB to 8GB, or more.

bhoaottoa7u2jd5ofmrbua-650-80

We liked

The Asus Strix GTX 1050 Ti’s aftermarket solution is a crisp reminder that you can innovate and design a graphics card that still looks classy at a respectable price point.

The dual-fan cooler is subtle and quiet, with 0dB fan technology ensuring temperatures remain low, and noise is minimal, the included backplate, and hint of RGB AURA tech that Asus is so well known for glams up an otherwise budget purchase, making this a truly solid aftermarket card.

We disliked

While it has innovated on the design front, Nvidia’s decision not to innovate aggressively on the GPU in stark contrast to last generation’s GTX 950 leaves very little to be desired.

Final verdict

If you’ve not upgraded for some time, (we’re talking pre GTX 600 series), the GTX 1050 Ti is a fantastic solution to alleviate all of your 1080p gaming woes; however, if you’ve got the cash then you should spring for the 3GB GTX 1060 variant instead.

For the time being, 3GB is more than plenty for 1080p. Anything more than that and you’re going to need far more processing power anyway.
