Asus’ slim ROG G20CB desktop gets in on the Pascal party

Like Acer's Predator G1 desktop, the Asus ROG G20CB is a small-form-factor desktop with an emphasis on gaming performance. The machine packs in quad-core Skylake processors, full-sized graphics cards, and three disks in its 9.5-liter volume. Today, the ROG G20CB's gaming performance is getting a shot in the arm from Nvidia's latest and greatest.

Previously, the G20CB offered graphics cards as powerful as the GeForce GTX 980, but now Asus is offering the full-fat GTX 1080 in the svelte desktop. That modern card should more than fulfill the machine's "Oculus Ready" certification. Aside from the aforementioned specifications, the G20CB includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and configurable RGB lighting in the Mayan-themed design on the front. Just make sure you have an extra power socket whereever you want to put the machine, because it takes two power adapters.

    They should change their slogan to “Deceptively Powerful – Honestly Ugly”

    Put one of these in a cheerful room to suck out all the cheer and good vibes.

    WTF, Asus. Hire some designers with good taste.

      I actually like the aesthetic design of these ROG systems.

      But in real life, they look like (and are made of) cheap chintzy plastic.

      Twobrick hack is lazy, though. Does the Fury X version need four bricks? :p

      Lazy, half-assed design. It’s easy to make compact when you don’t have to integrate the power brick(s).

      This is just two notebook power bricks cobbled together with plastic.

      Anyone who knows PC’s will avoid these like the plague, it’s the Wallmart/BestBuy victims you need to feel sorry for.
