We now have a lot of laptops in the market that is equipped with the RTX 30-series GPUs and they all have configurable wattages. Recently, NVIDIA required all laptop manufacturers to publish their maximum clock speeds and operating wattages and ASUS is the first one to respond by publicly posting all of their new generation of laptops’ specs.

NVIDIA is finally putting a requirement for laptop manufacturers to list out the specs of the new RTX 30-series GPUs found in the latest slew of laptops.
Okay, so it’s been quite some time since we published our benchmark results of the new ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551Q. It packs the latest AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop, 32GB RAM, and double 1TB NVMe SSD in RAID 0. But, at the end of the first benchmark test we did – we said that you should take our test with a grain of salt since we’re using pre-released drivers, BIOS, and firmware.
Performance review – ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551Q with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX + NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop
The Zephyrus Duo is back again with a spec refresh – and this time, it has updated both CPU and GPU with the latest and greatest hardware. But, we’re not here to review the laptop since it’s mostly the same as last year’s Zephyrus Duo, just with an updated CPU and GPU.
Aopen , which is a brand by Acer Malaysia, has announced two new monitors that are suitable for both work and play, which is suiting for us since we’re working from home anyway. These new displays are actually pretty good – and Acer Malaysia is hosting two sessions of limited-time offers on both Shopee and Lazada too.
This is an interesting device. It’s a portable monitor – and yet it has a touchscreen. And ViewSonic being a company that makes displays, I don’t expect less from ViewSonic at all. So, I’ve used this across multiple different devices – and here are the things we want to share with you about this portable monitor.
Intel’s Tiger Lake series of chips – also known as the 11th Generation of Intel Core chips. If you’ve been following the Tiger Lake chips since its launch, you may have seen some videos featuring an Intel-branded laptop.
We’ve reviewed a few GuliKit products here on this channel – and hey, we really like their stuff. And today, we’re adding another thing that we like into our list. This is the GuliKit Universal Controller Charging Dock. It’s a mouthful of name, but it has the codename NS23. But, it does whatever its name tells it does – and it did really well too.
I personally believe that games available on PC are getting more and more diverse. Some games are better played with a game controller – perhaps the GuliKit controllers that we reviewed before – which is best used wirelessly via Bluetooth. But, many desktop PCs nowadays do not have built-in WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity.
Having an external monitor is fantastic – be it for laptops or just another monitor for your desktop – it’s something that we need. And for the case of the ASUS ROG STRIX XG17AHP, this is a high-performance external monitor that is versatile for both gaming and work at the same time.
