Asus is known worldwide for making high performance graphics cards (GPU)’s, so when I stumbled across this news piece over at Ubergizmo, I was pleasantly shocked and surprised. Asus has decided to launch a behemoth of a custom built PC at this year’s Computex code named ROG Tytan CG8890.
The letters at the front of the case R, O, and G. Would place this custom built PC firmly at the tip top of Asus’s product line code named Republic of Gamers. Which means this will be an expensive product guaranteed to break the bank of most PC builders. This is a product solely meant for enthusiast who have money to throw away.
ROG Tytan CG8890 Specifications:
|CPU||Intel ® i7-3960X O.C mode: 3.8/4.02GHz|
|Graphics||Nvidia GTX 690|
|Memory||16GB DDR3 at 2133MHz|
|Storage||2TB SATA 3GB/s hard drive (7200RPM)+ 120Gb SSD x 2|
|Sound Card||Asus Xonar DX|
|Optical Drive||BD Writer|
In order to make the ROG Tytan transform one has to simply press the overclock button called “Turbo Gear” and the case will open up. First the two side panels will open up showing six fans that focus on taking in fresh air into the case, then on the top back portion of the case another panel will open revealing two exhaust fans to help draw heat out of the case.
Check out the videos below to see the case in action. I also included a montage film from Asus’s you tube channel showcasing all the products they showed at Computex 2012.
