ASUS to reveal sub USD 1500 GTX 10-series equipped Notebook
It’s still cheaper than a Mac…right?
The new product lineups for 10-series equipped gaming notebooks and laptops can get a little pricey once manufacturers start slapping in different features and spec combinations for their models. ASUS may look to change that though as they tease their upcoming sub-USD 1500 GTX 10-series equipped Notebook during the course of the ROG Masters Philippine Finals.
Slated for reveal in the coming months, possibly later this 2016 or early Q1 of 2017, the upcoming notebook model, which will be under the ROG brand, will be equipped with a GTX GeForce 1060 GPU, paired with a 6th Generation Intel Core processor and 8GB of Memory. While the actual pricing sits at around USD 1,466 (PHP 69,995), it comes close to the previously speculated pricing of GTX GeForce 1060 equipped notebooks from NVIDIA which sits at around USD 1,300.
Aside from this new model, ASUS also adds that the previously released ASUS GL752 will be receiving an IPS display update for future models, and as well as a 120Hz refresh rate, and G-Sync capabilities. These new updated models are also expected to roll out later this year or earlier next year.
The GeForce GTX 10 series is NVIDIA’s lineup of current generation GPU models that uses the Pascal Microarchitecture allowing it to reach well beyond 1300 Mhz in clock speeds. The GeForce GTX 10 series GPUs come in Titan X, 1080, 1070 and 1060 models with 2 other rumored iterations, namely the GeForce GTX 1050 and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
