ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced its new 2023 desktop lineup, packing with new CPUs and GPUs from Intel and NVIDIA, as well as significant redesigns to increase airflow across the board. The new lineup includes ROG G22CH, ROG Strix G16CH and ROG Strix G13CH
ROG G22CH – Bringing ultra-compact, 10L small form factor with serious gaming performance
For the first time on an ROG desktop, the G22CH utilizes indirect bias lighting for the front panel, giving the machine a refined yet distinctly gamer personality. Powered by up to an Intel Core i9-13900K, up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPU, up to 32 GB of DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and 2 TB of PCIe 4.0 storage, the G22CH can deliver truly next-generation gaming experiences.
According to ROG, the G22CH was designed from the very beginning with a focus on airflow.It supports traditional air cooling or a custom AIO liquid cooler for the CPU. The ROG G22CH is smaller in every dimension than the previous small form factor flagship, the ROG G21CX Huracan, despite the former having an external power adapter and the G22CH featuring an internal power supply. It also features a toolless design, allowing for easy access to all compartments and enabling painless hardware upgrades in the future.
ROG Strix G16CH – The pure gaming excitement for a gaming desktop
The ROG Strix G16CH has the perfect formula for a gaming desktop, thanks to the power of up to an Intel Core i7-13700KF CPU and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 GPU. For gamers who love to multitask, the Strix G16CH boasts up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM, and for those with large game libraries, 3 TB of total storage capacity plus more room to expand ensures plenty of peace of mind.
But the key highlight for the G16CH us actually its entirely airflow-focused design. It features a a front panel intake with plenty of access to fresh air, and a nearly identical top exhaust with copious ventilation, allowing for a long period of gaming without worrying of thermals. As a mid-tower PC, the Strix G16CH can accommodate a traditional air-cooled configuration or a high-performance 240 mm liquid cooler for the CPU. Despite this airflow-focused redesign, the signature ROG design cues that differentiate the G16CH from the competition remain, including the ROG Slash aesthetic, an integrated headset holder, and reinforced double D-ring strap.
ROG Strix G13CH – Receives a redesigned high airflow chassis
The ROG Strix G13CH gets a redesigned for 2023 on the the chassis to allow more airflow than ever, while retaining the curves and angles that make it a uniquely ROG machine. The 2023 model will be powered by up to an Intel Core i7-13700 processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPU. It also can be paired with up to 64 GB of RAM and 2 TB of total storage.
The G13CH has additional cutouts and air channels match the pathing that make this desktop so recognizable as an ROG machine, increasing cooling performance without sacrificing its ROG identity. For connectivity, WiFi 6E support offers broadband level networking with low latency, even on crowded networks, enabling an esports ready connection no matter where in the house gamers play.
