ASUS is releasing an $1700 SKT T1 laptop in 2018

The name of the laptop should be instantly familiar for anyone who follow the League of Legends professional scene, as it references the team SK Telecom T1.

Asus ROG Strix GL12 desktop, meanwhile, is designed specially for e-sports. The Flare will also be available in one of the latest additions to the Cherry MX line up announced a year ago, the Cherry MX silver design which features a shorter actuation point of only 1.2mm and a maximum travel distance of 3.4mm; for reference the Cherry MX red switch has a 2mm actuation point and a 4mm total travel distance. Powering the device is a factory-overclocked Core i7-7820HK processor which is up to 4.3 GHz from the factory, and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with a maximum boost clock of 1974 MHz. It also includes an expansion bay and an easy-swap SSD tray to make system upgrades effortless. The slashes can be set to over 16 million colors, along with several preset designs.

Another Asus gaming machine has been revealed under the bright lights of CES in Las Vegas, and in this case it's a beefy desktop PC.

The new Strix Flare from ROG combines a mixture of Cherry MX RGB switches, with funky Auraenabled RGB backlighting and a driver that cloaks the keyboard to stop games blocking your important macros. A USB passthrough lets you connect your mouse to the keyboard, to clean up some cabling, and it offers a detachable wrist rest as well. The backlit keys are individually programmable and there is a swappable, illuminated acrylic insert emblazoned with the ROG badge. The ROG Strix GL12 is coming in April but the price is still unknown. First up is the ROG Aura Terminal, a four-channel addressable RGB controller that works with Aura Sync and the company's new ROG Halo technology. The ROG Spotlight is matte-black finished and can be magnetically attached to surfaces. The Spotlight can be rotated 360° within its aluminum enclosure to ensure the logo is always displayed upright.

The ROG Bezel-free kit is simple, it is two attachments that sit between the left and right monitors with light-bending lenses which refract the light at 130 degrees to hide the edges of the monitors.

All of the accessories will be available in the H1 2018, with pricing to come. These monitor borders are created to join up multiple displays and use PMMA optical micro-structures that refract light to hide the bezels underneath.
