Introducing the new ROG G20CB a powerful, compact, console-sized 9.5-liter gaming desktop with refined aesthetics. Unlike most powerful SFF systems, the G20 runs cool and quiet—thanks to a sophisticated custom cooling module and a fanless power adapter. The G20CB includes a 6th generation Intel i7 Skylake processor, and its light zones are now fully customizable, offering 8 million colors in pulse, color cycle or music equalizer modes.
Along with 2.5” and 3.5” slots for SSDs and HDDs, the G20 supports the latest M.2 NVMe SSDs that deliver storage bandwidth in the GB/s range, facilitating ultrafast game installs and level loading times. With up to an Nvidia GTX 980, the G20 is suited for surround displays or for 2K or 4K monitors. It also includes exclusive ASUS ROG Aegis II software with GameAlive for instant gameplay recording, editing, and streaming, and GameFirst III for network traffic management.
Before testing the ROG G20CB, please ensure that the pre-loaded Windows 10 Operating System, drivers, and ASUS software are up to date. To check for ASUS software updates, locate the ASUS Live Update app in the Start Screen menu or in the system tray, or by performing a Windows search using the keywords “Live Update”.
The G20 features a sophisticated air chimney that draws cool air in at the bottom of the case and exhausts it at the top. The air chimney design is inspired by desert-home architecture and uses natural air currents and air convection to passively cool. This unique design allows for a slim, compact tower profile while also ensuring that the fastest desktop CPU and VGA remain cool.
Full Range of Lighting Options
Three individually customizable RGB light zones illuminate the intricate maya pattern on the front and top of the G20: The front left, front right, and bottom of the tower glow in subtle, custom colors. Lights can be set to pulse, cycle through the color palette, or interactively respond to in-game sounds or music or movies.
Create tutorials or share entertaining moments with Game Alive. Game Alive makes it easy to capture screenshots or in-game footage, and it also allows users to adjust images or footage through its video editor.
ROG GameFirst III
The latest iteration of the GameFirst utility adjusts the firmware of the NIC to both increase game data bandwidth and prioritize game data packages. It helps reduce loading times and latencies and also helps prevent dropped or delayed packages that cause glitches, missed shots, or in-game stutter.
