ASUS has taken the wraps off the new lineup of ZenFone smartphones powered by Intel Atom processors: the ZenFone 4, ZenFone 5, and ZenFone 6. With these handsets comes a swath of colorful rounded mobile devices, all of them boldly bearing ASUS's branding and the newly-introduced ZenUI, a new user interface the company is rolling out with its smart devices.
PC gamers are on the receiving end of a new monitor ASUS has revealed at CES, the ROG SWIFT PG278Q monitor. According to the company, this is the first WQHD-resolution monitor that uses NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, and along with that comes a very high refresh rate and some other perks aimed just at gamers.

Here at CES, ASUS has just taken the wraps off its new Transformer Book Duet TD300, a quad-mode laptop that is said to be the first ever offering a full Android and Windows dual-operating system experience. The software is run on a machine containing Intel's Core i7 processor and a host of other hardware that makes this an all-around solid entrant into the world of Android-loaded laptop/tablet hybrid systems.
Last month rumors started to circulate that Asus was working on a new Windows tablet. The rumors claim the device is called the VivoTab Note 8. Along with the name of the tablet, some specifications were also leaked including the use of Windows for the operating system and an 8-inch screen.
ASUS has released the second of two (or more) teaser videos ahead of its CES 2014 product launch. This one hints at 4-, 5-, and 6-inch handset offerings.

Asus has a history of using teasers to hint at new products it will unveil. Ahead of Computex last spring, Asus was teasing a product showing close ups that hinted at a shiny metal exterior. Asus has a new teaser video that has turned up ahead of CES 2014 kicking off next month in Las Vegas.
Earlier this week, evidence surfaced on ASUS's website of a tablet referred to as model M80TA, something that was speculated as a possible small Transformer Book.

Today we're letting loose our first-impressions of the technology called G-Sync, NVIDIA's newest in new graphics enhancement for the gaming universe.

Before you go any further, have a peek at our NVIDIA G-Sync SlashGear 101 for data from the start - then it's time to activate.
We've got one of the first NVIDIA G-Sync monitors in the world sitting on our desk this week, and though we're not quite to production level preview time as of yet, the impression we're getting already is one of a whole new era in gaming graphics. Aside from that, if there's one thing we can say unequivocally about this ASUS unit with G-Sync inside before speaking about its quality, it's that the concept behind it isn't something everyone is going to understand. Not right off the bat. Instead we've got some explaining to do before we begin.
