The latest ROG motherboards — including ROG Dominus Extreme, ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha, ROG Rampage VI Extreme Omega and ROG Maximus XI Formula

ROG Matrix GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti. The Matrix name is reserved for exceptional products that leap forward, exceeding innovation and performance expectations. The new ROG Matrix GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti is the latest graphics card to earn this pedigree by introducing a unique all-in-one closed-loop cooling system. With the pump, tubing and radiator all integrated seamlessly under the shroud, the Matrix is cooler and quieter than air-cooled cards, while taking up the same amount of space. Each card has been binned and tuned to deliver the best out-of-the-box Turing™ experience, making the Matrix the ultimate enthusiast graphics card for small chassis and air-cooled builds.

ROG Strix XG438Q is a stunning 43-inch UHD (3840 x 2160 resolution) gaming monitor with an ultrafast 120Hz refresh rate and FreeSync 2 HDR technology that lays to rest any problems with screen tearing and choppy frame rates, delivering an optimized visual experience for unbelievable game play.

ROG Motherboards

ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha, ROG Rampage Extreme Omega, ROG Dominus Extreme, and the CES 2019 Innovation Award-winning ROG Maximus XI Formula. The Alpha and Omega both feature 16 power stages that are strategically paired to rapidly deliver the power requirements that stem from the AMD Threadripper and Intel Core X-series multiple-core processors.

Optimized network connections for streaming AAA game titles

The new ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 dual-band gigabit Wi-Fi router is one of the world’s first routers being optimized for the NVIDIA GeForce NOW recommended program. GeForce NOW recommended routers undergo rigorous testing to ensure they provide the best possible quality of experience, and lowest possible latency, for cloud gaming. GeForce NOW is a cloud gaming service that turns your underpowered or incompatible system into a powerful gaming rig, and connects you to popular PC game stores like Steam and Uplay. ROG Rapture GT-AC2900 also comes with RGB lighting, making it a great addition to the ambiance of game centers, as well as triple-level game acceleration that prioritizes gaming traffic from the device to the server.

ROG Chariot gaming chair and ROG Ranger BP3703 gaming backpack.

The right combination of comfort, ergonomics and functionality is essential when selecting a gaming seat, so ROG created the high-quality ROG Chariot and ROG Chariot Core gaming chairs built with easy-decontamination PU fabric, high-resilience cold foam and an all-steel frame to resist wear from water, scratches and high temperatures. Memory foam has been added to the upper headrest and lower lumbar rest to improve comfort and posture as well as reduce stress and back pain. ROG Chariot comes with unique features such as LED lighting, time tracking that can remind users of their sitting times and motion mapping that can detect when users stand up and seamlessly pause the content on their computer.
