ROG MOTHERSHIP COMES TO TAKE PC GAMING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Desktop replacement laptops put incredible power in a portable package that you can take anywhere. They also make concessions to conform to a clamshell form factor that’s unnecessarily rigid for deployment on a desk. The legacy blueprint not only limits cooling, but also and locks you into a fixed position that’s really only required for use on a lap. That’s the last place you’ll find most desktop replacements, so we reimagined the form factor to raise your game. Instead of sitting flat, the ROG Mothership stands tall to draw more air into its advanced cooling system. Its keyboard detaches and folds to fit different scenarios, giving you the freedom to find the perfect position, and the innovative design leaves enough room to put all the speakers right below the screen. The exquisitely machined aluminum chassis frames an ultra-fast 144Hz/3ms G-Sync display powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ graphics and Intel® Core™ i9 processor. Better cooling allows us to push the CPU and GPU beyond stock speeds and still sustain exceptional performance with demanding workloads. The...

A New Mod for Resident Evil 2 Gets Rid of Mr. X Completely

The remake of Resident Evil 2 is nothing short of dreams come true as we get to relive one of the greatest gaming stories of times past. The remake, however, features a new character known as Mr. X and opinions about him have been mixed at best. Some love the fact that he’s there as, after all, he’s scary as hell and this is a horror game. Others, however, say that he destroys the pace of the game altogether. It only took a few days before mods for Resident Evil 2 started coming out with two of the best being the DMX “X gonna give it to you” overlay and the mod that turned Mr. X into Thomas the Tank Engine. Fun mods aside, if he actually ruins the gameplay for you, there’s now a mod that can completely remove him from the game – like he never existed in the first place. The mod was created by MaVeRick, and it’s known simply as “X No More.” The coolest part about this mode is that it doesn’t break down scripted events that happen through the storyline. In...

THE REPUBLIC OF GAMERS G703 CARRIES THE TORCH FOR DESKTOP REPLACEMENT CLAMSHELLS

This is mobile gaming at its finest! While the just introduced ROG Mothership represents the future, the ROG G703 takes the present into the next generation. It is powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with an optional factory-overclocked Intel Core i9-8950HK processor for speeds of up to 4.8GHz. Sticking to a traditional 17” laptop form factor requires beefier cooling and a thicker chassis to achieve the same performance as its deep-breathing sibling. The larger heatsinks and fans are so effective that the G703 can keep up despite having much less room to breathe. ROG G703 features an IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology, allowing for super smooth gameplay even on Ultra graphics settings. G703 also features HyperDrive Extreme storage, which uses exclusive technology to combine three NVMe™ PCI Express® (PCIe®) SSDs in RAID 0 configuration for read speeds of up to 8700MB/s — the fastest ever on a laptop. Sticking to a familiar design imparts a different sort of versatility. The ROG G703 can sit on your lap...
