Asus launches Ryzen-powered Zenbook 14, Zenbook Flip, Rog Strix G Laptop and GL10DH Desktop

    Asus is launching a whole raft of Ryzen-powered ZenBooks in India at pretty interesting price-points. We’ve got the Zenbook 14 and Zenbook flip, alongside a pair of hardcore gaming options, the GA502 and the ROG Strix GL10DH , the “first” AMD-powered gaming desktop (well, technically not the first if you count every single Ryzen-powered DIY desktop in existence. But hey, marketing).

    What kind of hardware are we looking at here, exactly?

    The Zenbook 14 is a budget ultrathin that looks great, delivers excellent battery life, and somehow manages to remain more or less affordable at Rs. 59,990. You’re getting a Ryzen 5 3500U and Vega 8 with quad speakers and an excellent 86 percent screen-to-body ratio. And all this weighs in at just 1.39 kilos, making it an exceptionally travel-friendly option.

    The Zenbook Flip comes in Ryzen 3500U and 3700U flavors, with the former priced at 64,990, and the latter at 74,990. For the price premium over the Zenbook 14, you get an excellent 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, slim-bezelled design. As the “Flip” suggests, you get a touchscreen as well. We actually think the Ryzen 5 variant of the Flip is the best deal you’ll get here. For just Rs. 5,000 more, you get all the benefits of the Zenbook 14 plus that excellent touchscreen and stylus. An IR camera facilitates facial login here.

    What of the Zephyrus G? You’re looking at a reasonably affordable high-end gaming laptop that features a Ryzen 7 3750H paired with the GTX 1660 Ti. You get a 120 Hz monitor and this setup is perfect for high-refresh rate eSports gaming in titles like Overwatch and Fortnite.

    The last item Asus is bringing out is the most interesting: the GL10DH gaming desktop. As far as prebuilt systems go, this one is among the more reasonably priced offerings. At a starting price of 66K, you can go up to a Ryzen 7 3800X and RTX 2070, though that will almost certainly cost more than the base variant. You get Aura Sync lighting tech, highlighted by the transparent side panel.

    All in all, these are some solid offerings and third-gen Ryzen helps Asus keep prices competitive.
