DNP Asus reveals ROG TYTAN G70 gaming desktop


Didn't snag one of the ROG TYTAN G30s ASUS announced in June? Don't sweat it because the Taiwanese manufacturer has already one-upped itself, combining the transforming case of last year's TYTAN CG8890 with the G30's major features -- water-cooled Core i7-4770K, one-touch overclocking, multi-monitor and surround sound support. Just for good measure, an available Nvidia GTX780 can replace the '30's GTX 680. Sure, the G70 is Haswell-equipped, but that's not nearly as impressive as activating "Turbo Gear" on it is: Push a button and the system overclocks, then its side and top panels extend outward automatically, exposing the rig's 10 fans. How cool is that? As frosty as this tower's innards we'd imagine. If that wasn't enough to push you over the edge, it'll wirelessly charge any Qi-compatible devices you might have as well. This beast of a rig should be available soon at retailers near you, but ASUS hasn't provided pricing. We're guessing it's probably expensive -- call it a hunch.

ASUS Unveils ROG Tytan G70 Gaming Desktop PC with Easy All-Core Processor Overclocking and Transforming Chassis

Fully-loaded gaming desktop features the latest 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX780 graphics and sophisticated liquid cooling

Taipei, Taiwan (31 July, 2013) - ASUS today announced the Tytan G70 Gaming Desktop PC with the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor and one-click, no-reboot-required, all-core processor overclocking. The Tytan G70 also features NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX780 graphics that supports four displays for fully immersive gaming, a sophisticated multi-vented case design for efficient cooling, built-in wireless battery recharging for mobile devices, and SonicMaster audio.

Instant four-core overclocking and ultra-realistic graphics
ASUS Tytan G70 features one-click Turbo Gear overclocking that allows users to make the most of the 4th generation Intel Core i7-4770K processor without having to reboot. ASUS Turbo Gear technology provides simultaneous four-core CPU overclocking to push the Tytan G70's clock speed from the standard 3.7GHz to two stable levels - Level 1 at 3.9GHz and Level 2 at 4.1GHz.

The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX780 graphics card has the capacity to deliver smooth gameplay at the highest in-game graphics settings and can support up to four displays, as well as the option to game in 3D with NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround.

Efficient cooling solutions in the heat of battle
The Tytan G70 features a 10-way venting design that takes advantage of its 10 cooling fans. Activating Turbo Gear mode automatically opens the top and side vents to reveal six front-facing and two rear-facing fans. These, along with two fans in the bottom grill and inside the case, work in tandem with the integrated water-cooling system to provide effective thermal management. These cooling solutions make the Tytan G70 ideal for marathon gaming sessions and prolong component lifespan, too. The vents also have sensors to prevent them from closing on fingers.

Tytan G70 sports solid, chiseled lines, with intricate patterns on the chassis as well as lighting effects like the ROG logo and bottom grill LEDs change color from blue to red to reflect overclocking levels.

Enhanced SonicMaster audio
Tytan G70 features ASUS SonicMaster technology. Together with MaxxAudio® from Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award®, they give Tytan G70 immersive and impactful audio delivery, enhancing the gaming experience with reverberating explosions and gunshots, with even the slightest footsteps giving directional auditory cues on the battlefield. Tytan G70 also comes with the ASUS-exclusive AudioWizard interface that allows users to tailor settings according to their needs.

Real-world usability and convenience
Tytan G70 comes with ASUS Wireless Charger for cable-free charging of smartphones and tablets that are compliant with the Qi inductive power standard. To charge, users simply need to place their Qi-compatible device on the recharging tray built into the top of the case. ASUS also provides Tytan G70 users with 32GB of complimentary ASUS WebStorage for three years.

Based on the PCWorld USA 2012 reader survey of tech satisfaction, reliability, and service, users ranked ASUS as a leading choice for desktop PCs, citing high satisfaction with their value, connectivity, ease of use and reliability.
