IFA 2019 has been a rather big event for ASUS this year, with new ProArt monitors and laptops, the ROG Phone II and more. LEO had the chance to check out some of the new tech at the Asus booth to get more details and hands-on.
The ROG Phone II is on the way, packing a 120Hz OLED display and a Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. It is a truly impressive smartphone in terms of spec and we got to see the device broken down into its individual components to get a better grasp of the engineering work. In other ROG news, there is also a 300Hz gaming laptop on the way.
ProArt has been a huge topic of discussion at this year's IFA. ASUS has launched three new ProArt monitors, the PA329C with HDR600, the PA27UCX with MiniLED backlights and finally, the PA32UCG– which sports an incredible 4K/120Hz panel with HDR1600. This one has a peak brightness of 1600 nits and a sustained brightness of 1,000 nits across over 1,000 Mini LED backlight zones.
The ProArt StudioBook series is another big one. The flagship here is the StudioBook One- the world's most graphically powerful laptop. It features a Core i9-9900HK, a 4K display and an Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000 housed in the list of the laptop. This is not a Max-Q design and we have been told that total power draw can reach up to 300W with Optimus and a few other power saving tools enabled to shift CPU/GPU power based on the application. It is a beastly laptop and while pricing hasn't been confirmed, we are hearing it could fall somewhere in the £10,000 range.
There are other ProArt StudioBook laptops in the range too. The Quadro RTX 5000 model uses a Max-Q design with an 80W TDP. There are also models with RTX 2060s and Quadro 3000 GPUs on the way, in addition to Core i7 and Intel Xeon CPU options.
KitGuru Says: IFA has been huge for ASUS this year with a ton of announcements coming throughout the week. What do you think of all the latest stuff?
