ASUS reveals a range of new Windows 10 convertibles and laptops at IFA

ASUS held its IFA 2017 briefing today, and aside from announcing its Windows Mixed Reality Headset, it also unveiled a range of new Windows 10 PCs, including convertibles, laptops, and a gaming laptop.

First up is the ZenBook Flip 14, which comes in at just 13.9mm thick and weighs in at 1.4kg, but it also packs quite a punch. It includes Intel's eighth-generation Core i7 processor - making it quad-core - 16GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics, and a 512GB SSD.

The 14-inch 1080p display has pen support, along with a 360-degree hinge, and the audio is by Harman Kardon. The ZenBook Flip 14 comes in Icicle Gold and Slate Grey.

The VivoBook Flip 14 uses seventh-generation 'Kaby Lake' processors, so it's going to be dual-core. It has a fanless design though, so it won't be as noisy, although it's still a bit thicker than the ZenBook, at 15.4mm, and it weighs 1.5kg.

But the ZenBook Flip 15 is the real powerhouse of today's announcements, disregarding the gaming laptop, of course. It comes with an eighth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 and up to 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 RAM. But that's not all, as it includes an Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU, along with up to a 2TB HDD and 512SSD, so it should be a solid mix of power and portability. The 15.6-inch display comes in options of 4K and 1080p.

The ZenBook 13 is a standard laptop form factor, but it includes an eighth-generation Core i7 and Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics at 13.9mm thick. It also comes with up to 16GB RAM and a 1TB SSD.

Also a standard laptop, the VivoBook S14 packs a Core i7-8550U chip, much like the devices above. It's a bit thicker at 18.8mm, includes up to 16GB DDR4 RAM, and Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics.

And then there's the ROG Chimera gaming laptop, which is frankly a beast. It includes a seventh-generation Core i7-7820HK processor, which is Intel's high-power model that's unlocked for overclocking. It also packs an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU.

Finally, ASUS announced the ROG Strix XG35VQ curved monitor. It uses a 35-inch 3440x1440 screen with a 100Hz refresh rate and Adaptive-Sync technology.

ASUS hasn't yet announced pricing or availability for these products.
