Computex 2019: Asus 30th Anniversary, Project Prime Utopia and ROG X570 Motherboards

This is one of those new products that caught my eye. The Asus XG17 external 17-inch (IPS panel) gaming monitor with  USB Type-C (Thunderbolt 3), micro-HDMI 2.0 ports, and built-in speakers running at 240Hz, 1ms response time with 178Β° viewing angle.

We also spoke to Disney from ROG about up-coming X570 motherboards … she was very accommodating, spending lots of quality time with us πŸ™‚

Next, we have a range of X570 motherboards compatible with AMD’s latest Ryzen 3000 series of processors supporting PCIE 4.0.

The high-end Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Formula comes with an integrated Crosschill EK III waterblock, active PCH heatsink and M.2 aluminum heatsink, as well as on-board Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and 5 Gbps LAN.

And for all you min-ITX lovers … the Asus Strix X570-I Gaming is the one for you! It looks SO cute!

We also have some gaming accessories, including mouse mats, headsets and keyboards.


Asus’s TUF series also got the X570 treatment with 2 motherboards. The TUF Gaming X570-Plus (with wifi) and the TUF Gaming X570-Plus (without wifi).


Asus celebrated their 30th Anniversary with a nice wall with their logo along with an interactive touch screen panel showing all the motherboards they have ever made from the early 1990s all the way to present day.

And of course … there’s going to be some special 30th Anniversary edition of the Prime X299 motherboards and their latest Prime X570 motherboards.


Now this is something REAL special. It’s called the Prime Utopia project, and it’s a concept design that’s completely modular. It offers an all-in-one liquid cooling solution which you can fully monitor with OLED displays, and comes with interchangeable I/O modules.


For content creators, videographers, photo and graphic designers … let me introduce the ProArt PQ22U.

It’s the world’s first portable OLED 4K HDR monitor that offers a super thin 21.5-inch OLED panel with 240Hz refresh rate, a contrast ratio of 1000000 :1, with 8 video preset modes, excellent color/gamma correction and support for USB Type-C x2, Micro HDMI connections.
