ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) debuted the massive ROG Mothership (GZ700), a new desktop replacement that redefines the form factor for gaming laptops, at CES 2019. Instead of laying flat, this desktop replacement stands tall to draw more air into its advanced cooling system while its keyboard detaches and folds to fit different scenarios, giving you the freedom to find the perfect position. Its machined aluminum chassis sports a 17.3” Full HD IPS-level display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, an Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU, a RAID 0 array with three NVMe SSDs, and next-generation networking that enables greater than gigabit speeds for both wired and wireless connections.

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.
