ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE

It can be configured with an Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU, up to a 4K display, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, and a 1TB PCIe SSD.

Sure, there's the NVIDIA Big Format Gaming Display, but for those who don't want to shell out over $4K, there's the option of picking up the ASUS Bezel-Free Kit. These strips basically transform three individual monitors into one seamless curved gaming display. To be more specific, this accessory enables gamers with multiple-monitor setups to visually eliminate the gaps where their displays connect, creating the appearance of one extra-large, wraparound monitor for a totally immersive gaming experience. The kit consists of vertical lenses and easy-to-attach mounts that connect the edge of each monitor at a 130° angle -- the angle determined through extensive testing to provide the best viewing experience. An optical device that requires no software or power to operate, Bezel-free Kit uses light refraction to make the monitor edges disappear to the viewer. It provides an innovative, simple and effective method of increasing field of view and dramatically enhancing gameplay. Click here for the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
