Asus’s newest graphics cards definitely aren’t for gamers

Asus Mining Rx 470

A basic graphic card is all a computer needs to display the user interface on a computer screen. For graphics-intensive tasks, such as 4K video, games, VR, and plenty of other apps, you’ll need a more powerful discrete graphics card that can deliver more processing power. However, graphics cards makers are about to launch a new generation of products that can barely connect to an external monitor.

Asus might’ve finally made a router that looks good and actually works

Asus Blue Cave Wi-Fi Router

Nobody will blame you for thinking the contraption in the image above is some sort of new Dyson product that’s supposed to do something to the air in your home without sporting any blades. But that’s not a purifier, humidifier, heater or fan from Dyson. Instead, it’s a brand new Asus router. And it looks like that for a reason that has nothing to do with design. Although I have to say, I don’t mind that design one bit.

Microsoft's touchscreen-friendly versions of Windows have helped spawn a whole separate category of portable computers, and Asus just announced its finest effort yet. It's called the ZenBook Flip S, and it's already catching a lot of eyes.

Asus skips robots at this year’s Computex event and flaunts super-thin laptops instead

 Remember Zenbo, the cute humanoid robot that stole the show at Asus’ Computex press conference last year? Zenbo was absent from the stage this year, as were ZenFones. Instead, in an unusual departure for the event, which took place today in Taipei, Taiwan, the focus was solely on Asus’ new laptops, with the spotlight shining on the newest additions to its ZenBook line: the ZenBook… Read More

Asus C302 review: A $500 MacBook for everyone

Asus C302 Review

What makes the perfect "everyday" computer? You probably have a different definition of the ideal day-to-day laptop than me, but I'm willing to be there's some crossover: minimal weight, enough battery life to last most of the day away from the plug, a clear and crisp screen, good keyboard and mouse, and enough power that you're not left waiting.

If you take those as the important criteria and forget about Mac vs PC vs anything else, then a lot comes down to price. You shouldn't overpay for a laptop you're not going to use to the max, and that's why I would argue that this $500 Chromebook is the laptop most people should buy right now. At the very least, it's the most capable sub-$500 laptop you can buy right now.

This is the first Android smartphone in the world with 8GB of RAM

Asus ZenFone AR Release Date

Do we really need phones that have as much RAM as our computers? Apparently, we do, according to Android device makers. Asus is the first company in the world to announce a phone that’ll pack 8GB of RAM out of the box. As we saw last year, a phone sporting 6GB of RAM wasn’t necessarily faster than an iPhone that only had 2GB of RAM onboard. However, this year, the extra RAM might be needed to handle some very specific features that 2017 Android phones are supposed to support: Project Tango augmented reality cameras and Daydream virtual reality features.

ASUS believes a woman with a computer is better than a woman with a kitten

cwuddfwusaeargf Welcome to another episode of Social Media Managers Who Are Having a Bad Day. On todays episode we present Asus‘ assertion that a “cute girl” with a cat worse than a “sophisticated lady” with a Zenbook 3(tm) laptop. On the surface this argument might be a little specious – after all, cats are pretty cool – but what is Asus really saying? *GRABBING… Read More

This is the droid your household has been looking for

ASUS New Zenbo Robot
For as much as people talk about (and rightfully get excited about) smartphone advancements, we don't often hear about technological strides in the field of robotics. Truth be told, this has always struck me as odd given that many robots today possess capabilities that have seemingly been lifted from science fiction novels. Boston Dynamics, of course, famously has a lineup of impressively capable and equally terrifying robots, many of which are designed to look like and act like animals. And we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the ASIMO robot from Honda, a technological marvel that Honda touts as the "world's most advanced humanoid robot." The most recent entrant onto the list comes from ASUS, of all companies. Earlier this week, ASUS chairman Jonney Shih took the stage at Computex and introduced the world to Zenbo, a $599 household robot that looks and acts like a real-world version of Wall-E.
