ASUS ROG GR8 Now Available in The Philippines

ASUS has officially announced the local availability of their ROG GR8 desktop gaming PC which comes packed with an Intel Core i7-4510U processor and an NVIDIA GTX 750Ti graphics card as well as ASUS’s slew of features and utilities all in a sleek looking form factor.

Inspired by gaming consoles, the GR8 comes in a compact chassis measuring only 238 x 245 x 60 mm or around 2.5-liters in volume enabling it to fit nicely into almost any person’s setup, even those with really small desks. The chassis of the GR8 features the signature ROG red and black color combination and looks along with the same Mayan-inspired details found on the ASUS ROG Gladius gaming mouse.

The GR8’s other specifications include up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, Intel Gigabit LAN, built-in Miracast connectivity, either a 256GB SSD or a 1TB 7200rpm HDD, and ASUS’s inventory of features and utilities including SupremeFX Audio, Sonic SoundStage, Sonic SenseAmp, Sonic Studio, Sonic Radar II, and GameFirst III. The GR8 also comes pre-installed with Windows 8.1 or 8.1 Pro, ASUS AiSuite III, ASUS HomeCloud, DTS Connect, and a Steam utility for easy access to downloaded and downloadable games from the service.

To turn the ASUS ROG GR8 into a truly complete gaming package, ASUS has included the aforementioned ASUS ROG Gladius gaming mouse and an M801 mechanical gaming keyboard. Users can also upgrade their GR8 with more RAM (up to two SO-DIMM modules) and more storage (one extra 2.5-inch SSD/HDD).

The ASUS ROG GR8 is available through PC Express at an SRP of Php57,990 for the base configuration as well as the included ROG Gladius gaming mouse and the ASUS M801 mechanical keyboard.
