With the availability of new processors Broadwell-U in the mobile industry with around 15W TDP, but also incredibly efficient NVIDIA Maxwell GPU, the Taiwanese giant wanted to present a new system for high performance in a small space as the GR6.

The GR6 is based on the Core i5 5200U, Intel dual core unit with HT 2.2GHz and 2.7GHz turbo, performance should be significantly higher than the previous i5 4000U, not only side CPU but also the GPU side, with 48 units of calculation useful to exploit Quick Sync.

But to play at a good level, there is a real need for this GPU and ASUS engineers have opted for a GTX 960m, with 640 CUDA Cores.

The system memory is basic to 8GB, with the ability to make a substantial upgrade to 16GB, with modules DDR3L type SO-DIMM.

The ROG GR6 also integrates various technologies useful to the player, as the premium SupremeFX audio and LAN connectivity, managed GameFirst III, that with the help of Intel Gigabit keeps a connection always optimized for the lowest latency possible, controlling all applications on the PC that can possibly introduce decrease in performance (the technology of course does not control everything that derives from the quality of the ADSL line and the presence of additional PC on your home network).

ASUS ensures easy maintenance of the system with cover sliding side that allows quick access for normal cleaning or upgrading the RAM or even the replacement of the drive 2.5 “SSD / HDD.

The cooling system, according to ASUS, ensures a noise content in 20dB and 28dB when operating at idle.

Still no information on price and availability, but we expect an outlay of just less than or equal to the model GR8.
