With Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake processors soon hitting the market, Asus refreshed its Republic of Gamers (ROG) desktop gaming systems and even introduced a new ROG mini-PC during CES.

GT51CH Gaming Desktop

Top of the list is Asus’s flagship gaming desktop, the GT51CH. The ROG GT51CH serves as a refresh of the GT51CA, which was equipped with last generation’s Intel Core i7-6700K and graphics configurations ranging from an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 all the up to two GTX 1080s running in SLI. The new GT51CH carries over the GPU options of the old GT51CA, but will feature a Core i7-7700K.

Asus’s Aegis III software will come preloaded in the GT51CH, which will allow users to easily overclock the CPU, GPU, and system memory. Asus Aura, which controls the GT51CH’s RGB lighting profiles, will also be pre-installed. Finally, the GT51CH’s audio will be handled with an ESS Sabre HiFi DAC (digital to analog converter).
