Leading Overclocked Performance and Winning Gameplay with the ASUS ROG G752VS and ROG Peripherals

Players will experience League of Legends on the ROG G752VS, powered by Windows 10. The ROG G752VS features the 7th Generation Intel Core processors and features NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series graphics, and up to 64GB of DDR4 memory. In addition, the ROG G752VS cooling system – consisting of dual copper heat pipes and the ROG 3D Vapor Chamber– ensures that players experience superior cooling and improved reliability. The backlit anti-ghosting gaming keyboard with 30-key rollover provides precise command and control in battle, and the wide-viewing- angle panel delivers superb image quality and contrast, even when viewed from extreme positions. Lastly, a super-fast native 120Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology ensure ultra-smooth gameplay.

Players will also be equipped with leading ROG peripherals; the ROG Gladius mouse and Whetstone mouse pad. The ROG Gladius is a 6400dpi professional gaming mouse with customizable click resistance that delivers 2000Hz USB polling rate support. The ergonomic design accommodates all right handed grip types, and includes separate left and right buttons, with two specially-engineered programmable ‘slide-to-press’ buttons. An exclusive ROG Armoury interface allows for programmable buttons, performance settings, lighting effects, and surface calibration. Paired with the Whetstone mouse pad, a durable, silicon-based mouse pad, players will experience smooth, precise and silent control. The rollable design is easily portable for gaming on-the-go.
