Asus Announces Seriously Powerful ROG Strix GT35 Gaming Desktop

Asus has unveiled the new ROG Strix GT35, a powerhouse pre-built ‘tournament-ready’ desktop gaming rig with some seriously impressive specifications. We’re talking top of the range gaming desktop with all the bells and whistles, which suggests a hefty price tag to match.

As these types of desktops go, the ROG Strix GT35 offers a raft of customization options starting with the 10-core/20 thread Intel Core i9-10900KF alongside Core i9-10900K, Core i7-10700KF, Core i7-10700K, and Core i7-10700 options.

Alongside, owners can choose from a top of the line GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB, GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB, GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB, GeForce RTX 2060 Super 6 GB, or a GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB.

The ROG Strix GT35 is available with DDR4 at 2933 MHz, with counts up to 64 GB. There’s even space to upgrade to 128 GB. Storage is available with up to a 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD and a 1 TB or 2 TB HDD.

Expansion slots include two PCle 3.0 x 16 (x16,x8 x8), one PCIe 3.0 x 16(x4), three PCIe 3.0 x 1, two 2.5” hot-swap bays and two M.2 sockets. Connectivity-wise we are looking at two USB 2.3 Gen 1 Type-A, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C, microphone in, and headphone out on the front, as well as three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, two USB 2.0 Type-A, one HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort 1.2, one RJ45, five audio jacks, and one S/PDIF on the rear I/O.

Other features include 802.11 A/B/G/N/AC/AX WiFi, Intel 2.5 G LAN, and a 500 W or 700 W 80 Plus PSU.

The chassis features a cooling-focused, multi-chambered design alongside liquid cooling. The arrangement ensures vital components are kept in separate bays to minimize thermal interference and keep the ambient temperature low. The design also means sound levels are kept below 35 DB during higher performance gaming sessions, according to Asus. 

The overall look is pretty striking, and ASUS has gone for an aerodynamic aesthetic that also serves a cooling purpose by funneling fresh air through widened vents.

Asus has also focused on providing customization options with the ROG Strix GT35 through the Keystone II tech, Armory Crate Software, and Aura Sync to personalize light effects.

There’s no news on a pricing range or expected availability date as of writing.
