ASUS ROG Strix Helios Officially Announced

No comments

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced ROG Strix Helios, the first gaming PC case from ROG. Strix Helios is a premium mid-tower chassis with superior aesthetics, a comprehensive cable-management system and offers ample room for water-cooling setups. Designed from the ground up to accommodate ROG components, Strix Helios is sure to make the short list for any ROG enthusiast. The new gaming case can be pre-ordered immediately in selected regions, and will be available worldwide shortly.

Made for showcase builds

Strix Helios is designed for those who want to create a gaming rig that will stand out in any crowd. It boasts three 4mm-thick, smoked, tempered-glass panels fitted in a refined brushed-aluminum frame, plus a stunning display of Aura RGB lighting integrated into the front panel. The LEDs are individually addressable, and can be customized with a palette of millions of colors and a range of preset effects – all easily synced with the vast Aura Sync hardware ecosystem to augment the build.

Strix Helios offers the option for dual vertical  GPU mounting in addition to the standard orientation for gamers who want additional flair. For gamers eager to haul and show off their prized build at LAN or gaming events, the case comes with stylish fabric handles that are rigorously tested to support up to 50 kg for comfortable transportation.

Effortless cable management and maintenance

Strix Helios has been thoughtfully designed with flexible covers and a comprehensive cable-management system to keep the interior tidy, clean and sharp. An adjustable multifunction cover with GPU braces cleverly hides cabling, provides sturdy support to graphics cards and allows for an SSD or ROG Aura Terminal to be mounted for display. There’s also a two-piece PSU shroud with a front cut-out to enable compatibility with ROG Thor or other OLED-integrated power supplies. In the back, a translucent cable cover conceals unsightly wiring while allowing illuminations from RGB devices to shine through.

Building with and maintaining a Strix Helios is also made simple. Release buttons at the rear of the chassis allows builders to swing down the side panels for instant, tool-less access to the interior. The panels are bottom-hinged, and will remain supported at an angle until they’re ready to be completely detached. The case also comes with fan and radiator mounts, and removable filters on the top, front and underside for all-round dust protection.

Built to perform and primed for expansion, Strix Helios can accommodate up to an EATX motherboard and offers ample space for serious water-cooling setups. With support for up to 420mm front and 360mm top radiators, room is also reserved for installing a water-cooling pump and reservoir.

OCTOPATH TRAVELER Comes to PC this June

No comments


OCTOPATH TRAVELER, we probably thought as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, is officially going to the PC as Square Enix has announced! Yeah, there was the leak by the company themselves a couple of days ago. But as always, we want our stuff to be official.

In OCTOPATH TRAVELER, players will set forth on an epic adventure through the enchanting yet perilous continent of Orsterra, stretching across vast landscapes from lush forests, to desert outposts and snow-swept cathedrals. Featuring eight distinct characters each with their own tales to enjoy, ranging from journeys of self-discovery to quests for revenge, each traveler will start their journey in a different land so players can steer their own journey depending on whom they choose.


OCTOPATH TRAVELER will be released on Steam on June 7th, 2019.

NVIDIA Enables Ray Tracing on GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and Higher

No comments


NVIDIA’s Ray Tracing sees some impressive visual enhancements. That’s already an established fact. However, up to this date, there are only three games that support the feature – Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro Exodus and Battlefield V. Now, if you’re still hyped up for Ray Tracing but you’re stuck with Pascal GPUs GTX 1060 6GB or higher, you’re in luck, well, sort of. NVIDIA has just enabled Ray Tracing on those cards.

Here's the full list of the GTX GPUs that support Ray Tracing:

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
GeForce GTX 1660
NVIDIA TITAN Xp (2017)
NVIDIA TITAN X (2016)
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
GeForce GTX 1080
GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
GeForce GTX 1070
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

However, the question remains, if Ray Tracing takes such a huge toll even on the new RTX cards, should you even bother running on Pascal cards? We’ve done a quick test equivalent to doing math on a napkin tissue paper with the baseline GTX 1060 6GB with Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s Benchmark Tool to find out, with Ray Tracing set to Medium to at least see a viewable and realistic difference. And yeah, next time it's going to be on Afterburner.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is quite a CPU and GPU intensive title on PC, even more so when you want to get decent quality and frame rate. Turning on Ray Tracing would add up to the load, we’ll be testing it out on a GTX 1070 and a GTX 1080 in the coming days as well, and if more games would come with Ray Tracing support. NVIDIA also has a couple of tech demos you can download, so we'll try there as well.

Based on the proven Steel Legend design philosophy, the Z390 provides the most in demand features, taking advantage of a wide array of materials, components and technologies to ensure stable and reliable performance.

Cooling and usability were the focal points in the Z390 Steel Legend design process. The Z390’s shaped PCB design is not only attractive but also provides easier access to SATA ports. The board’s large and impressive XXL Aluminum Alloy Heatsinks enhance stability and overclocking potential. Dual full coverage M.2 SSD heatsinks dissipate heat efficiently to ensure your high speed drives always work at their best. 


Premium 60A Power Chokes and Nichicon 12K Black Caps mean that the Z390 Steel Legend not only remain rock solid no matter the task, but also keep your system stable when overclocking – for extra performance whether you're gaming or rendering professional content. 

Good aesthetics are one of the many themes of the Z390 Steel Legend. 
Gorgeous RGB lighting is an increasingly popular way of personalizing your PC. With the Z390 Steel Legend, you can customize your PC with Polychrome SYNC full-color RGB LED lighting, which provides both 3-pin addressable RGB headers and traditional 4-pin RGB LED headers that allow users to connect RGB strips directly to the motherboard and sync their lighting system using the app provided. Don’t worry if an RGB LED strip is not your thing, the Z390 Steel Legend already has built in fluorescent RGB lighting and detailed PCB print design on a Matte Black PCB for mainstream users, gamers, and professionals that choose to work and play in style.

ASRock has gone to great lengths to ensure optimum stability and performance while maintaining the spiritual philosophy of the Steel Legend series. The Z390 Steel Legend is ready for anything – no matter whether you’re a performance enthusiast, a gamer or a professional video editor.
