ASUS Republic of Gamers Announces G551 Gaming Notebook

Kuala Lumpur (16th October 2014) — ASUS today announced the Republic of Gamers (ROG) G Series G551 gaming notebook. The new ROG G Series represents a performance leap over previous predecessors, with Intel® Core™ i7 processors and enthusiast-grade NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ graphics for the horsepower to drive today’s games smoothly at their highest settings. The ASUS ROG G551 exhibits visual prowess with wide-angle IPS displays, and provide gamers with Full HD visuals. There’s also 4K/UHD-ready Trinity Display output for multi-monitor gaming or multitasking.

The distinctive gaming notebook design features a matte-black brushed-aluminum finish with red diamond-cut edges, and bears an illuminated ROG logo on the lid. The keyboards are designed especially for gamers, and the almost-silent cooling system efficiently removes heat with minimum fan noise.

Enthusiast-grade gaming performance
The new ASUS ROG G551 are powered by 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors for ultimate performance required by the latest gaming titles; while enthusiast-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics with Microsoft DirectX 11 provide sharper visuals and smoother in-game animations. To cope with the amazing power, ROG G551 features an advanced cooling system that efficiently removes heat with minimal fan noise so as not to disrupt the gaming experience.

Audio visuals that deliver immersive game worlds
The ASUS ROG G551 comes with a 15.6” Full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) LED backlit display. The IPS displays have wide 178-degree viewing angles, so color shift is minimized even when viewed from extreme positions in both the horizontal and vertical planes. Gamers are guaranteed accurate, lifelike colors that further enhance their gaming experience. Trinity Display technology enables users to hook their G Series up to three other external displays via HDMI 1.4 or Mini DisplayPort 1 — ideal for multi-monitor gaming and multitasking.

The exclusive SonicMaster Premium provides rich, crystal-clear high-fidelity audio while ROG AudioWizard features five easy-to-use preset modes with settings tailored to suit different game genres. And since most LAN gamers utilize headsets, ASUS ROG G551 incorporates a powerful headphone amplifier that has been fine-tuned by audio specialists in the ASUS Golden Ear team for an even more immersive experience. Every effect and note comes out with increased power, range, and clarity. This is more than enjoyment, as any gamer knows, sound is critical to success play, giving the edge with sonic awareness and positioning.

ROG-infused design
Aesthetically, the ASUS ROG G551 exudes ROG DNA, sporting a premium matte-black brushed-aluminum finish, red diamond-cut edges and an illuminated ROG logo on the lid. In keeping with the ROG theme, the ROG G551 has a seamless one-piece chiclet keyboard and specially-marked WASD keys for easy navigation and gameplay. The backlit keys glow red to make it easy for gamers to read keys in dim environments, and further adds to the ROG mystique.
