ASUS Unveils New ROG Swift OLED Monitor

 

If you were on the lookout for a fairly-new gaming monitor for your home gaming setup, then you might like what ASUS has to offer with its latest monitor, a new addition to its ROG Swift OLED line. The monitor packs a sharp 4K resolution, in addition to a nice variety of other features.

 

Staying true to the ROG line's reputation for high-end gaming peripherals, the new monitor features slim bezels all around, which surround a QD-OLED display with a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, as well as a super-smooth 240Hz refresh rate. The monitor also packs a base that allows for flexibility when positioning on your desk, and even comes with a bit of LED lighting for a more visually-pleasing look.

ASUS adds that the monitor packs a "highly efficient" custom heatsink and graphene film design that reduces the likelihood of burn-in, aka OLED's greatest foe.

 

For connectivity, the monitor comes with a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, three USB-A ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB-C port with 90W delivery. Other details include Dolby Vision support, VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black compliance, as well as 99% DCI-P3 gamut.


ASUS debuts portable OLED monitor with a foldable display

 

A problem that most laptop users face is the fact that the displays are quite small. Even larger 16-inch laptops still have screens that are considerably smaller than most displays you would find at home or at the office. To be fair, laptops are created to be portable so it makes sense, but ASUS is here with a solution in the form of a portable monitor.

 

The company has taken the wraps off its latest display at CES 2024. This comes in the form of the ASUS ZenScreen Fold. Portable monitors aren't new, but what ASUS has done here is they have taken foldable display technology and applied it to a monitor. This results in a 17.3-inch screen that can be folded and brought around with you on the go.

The specs of the ASUS portable monitor include a resolution of 2560×1920, a gamut that covers 100% of DCI-P3, along with VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500. While its size doesn't make it much bigger than some larger laptops out there, it could still be useful for those who like having a second display to work with. Plus the fact that it's foldable and thus portable makes it pretty convenient.

 

The only downside to the ASUS ZenScreen Fold is its price. Coming in at $2,000, this is not a cheap display. You can get an entire laptop (or multiple) for that price, but if you value having a second screen that you can bring with you on the go, then this could be worth it. ASUS plans on putting it on sale in Q2 2024.


ASUS teases ROG Phone 8 Pro's impressive Geekbench 6 Multi-Core score

 

ASUS has released a teaser bragging about the multi-core score tallied by its upcoming ROG Phone 8 Pro. The gaming phone, which is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, tallied 7422 on the Geekbench 6 multi-core test topping the scores generated by Geekbench tests of the iPhone 15 Pro Max. The latter is powered by the only 3nm application processor (AP) powering any smartphone last year, the A17 Pro AP.

 

On my iPhone 15 Pro Max, the highest Geekbench multi-core score was 7348. Quite tellingly, ASUS did not reveal the single-core score of the ROG Phone 8 Pro on Geekbench probably because the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 has never been able to top the A17 Pro's single-core score. My iPhone 15 Pro Max's top single-core score on Geekbench was 2934.

 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 uses an octa-core configuration, two cores more than the A17 Pro which gives Qualcomm's AP an advantage when it comes to multi-threaded tasks. In addition, the ROG Phone 8 Pro, being a gaming phone, includes a large vapor chamber which will help keep the chipset cool allowing it to deliver outstanding performance for longer periods.

 

ASUS teases ROG Phone 8 Pro's impressive Geekbench 6 Multi-Core score

 

Wccftech recently discovered an A17 Pro Geekbench test result showing scores of 2969 and 7570 for single-core and multi-core respectively. However, it believes that the test was able to achieve such results only by using an external cooler or by manipulating the results.

 

The AnTuTu Benchmark 10's top scores list was briefly led by a different gaming phone, the Nubia Red Magic 9 Pro with 24GB of RAM. The score was 2,290,773. The new leader is the OnePlus 12, also equipped with 24GB of RAM. This phone scored 2,334,361 on AnTuTu and both phones are powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC.

 

The ROG Phone 8 Pro carries a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 165Hz refresh rate, a 1080 x 2448 resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection. Configurations include 12GB RAM with 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage, 16GB RAM with 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage, and 24GB RAM with 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

 

The rear camera array includes a 50MP primary camera, a 32MP telephoto camera, and a 13MP ultrawide camera. The front-facing camera weighs in at 32MP and a 5500mAh battery keeps the lights on. ASUS is expected to unveil the phone today.


New Asus ROG Phone 8 high-res images pop up ahead of launch

 

For those of you who can't get enough of Asus' upcoming gaming phone, the ROG Phone 8, we have more high-resolution pictures showing the device from just about every angle (via MySmartPrice).

 

Of course, if you're not that excited about the next flagship coming from Asus and you've already seen the previous leaked pictures, you won't be missing much. The ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro are expected to be officially unveiled on January 16.

 

Although they will initially be available in China, Asus will definitely launch both models in other countries soon afterward. If you're a fan of the series and already own one of the previous ROG Phone models, there are definitely reasons to upgrade.

 

While specs are clearly better than the ROG Phone models launched 2-3 years ago, the design seems to have changed too. One thing that I appreciate about the upcoming ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro is the flat, non-glossy design. It's a big improvement coming from the ROG Phone 5, which not only feels massive, but it's also very slippery due to the glossy back.

 

As far as specs go, the ROG Phone 8 Pro is rumored to boast a stunning 6.78-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 165Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support. Also, it's safe to assume that Asus will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor inside, as well as up to 24GB RAM and 1TB of internal memory.

 

In the camera department, the ROG Phone 8 Pro is supposed to impress. Although nothing has been confirmed yet, the upcoming flagship is said to feature a 50-megapixel main camera that uses Sony's IMX890 sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a third 32-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom.

 

Both ROG Phone 8 and ROG Phone 8 Pro are reportedly IP68-certified. They will be powered by 5,500 mAh batteries with 65W fast charging support and run Android 14 right out of the box.


ASUS Shares More Details on ROG Phone 8 Launch

 

Not too long ago, ASUS shared a quick teaser post on its social media page about an upcoming smartphone launch - more specifically, the company's upcoming ROG Phone 8 is set to make its debut soon, and we now have a few more details about its arrival.

 

As featured on a post from the ROG Global social media account, ASUS is giving fans the chance to win the ROG Phone 8, with the tagline "#beyondgaming." With that in mind, it looks like ASUS is teasing some improvements to imaging performance, thanks to a "brand new camera system."

 

 

That being said however, not much else was mentioned in the teaser image, so details such as hardware, price and regional availability are currently unknown. However, it is highly expected that the phone will feature the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, and possibly up to 24GB of RAM. Based on the current teaser images, the phone might also come with a rather different-looking design from past ROG phones.

 

Going back to the latest post from the ROG brand, ASUS fans looking forward to winning the new phone can cast their votes in an online blind photo contest, with a lucky winner to be announced via a draw.
