Asus Republic of Gamers (ROG), a gaming brand, has launched its Nvidia GeForce RTX notebook lineup in the Middle East. It features two new flagship products, Mothership (GZ700) and Zephyrus S (GX701). The ROG Mothership (GZ700) is a 17.3-inch full HD detachable gaming laptop equipped with a factory-overclocked Intel Core i9 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, while the ROG Zephyrus S (GX701) is the world’s slimmest gaming laptop with an 8th Gen Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design graphics. 

“Launching the products here in the Middle East first after their unveiling at CES 2019 is a reflection of how important the Middle East is to ROG. Consumers here have shown that they want the latest innovations that ROG brings to gaming, and we appreciate their support and faith in our products,” said Jeff Lo, Asus MENA regional head. 

He added:“Esports (electronic sports) appears to have become an important dimension of the future of sports in the MENA region.” With the announcement of Dubai X-Stadium last year, Dubai is soon to become a regional and global hub for hosting video gaming events. This gives us an opportunity to attract millions of esports gamers, spectators and enthusiasts from across the globe. And as a brand, we align ourselves to the visions of the leaders and provide best of innovations for the esports industry.”
