  • 1Description

The Republic of Gamers G20CI Desktop Computer from ASUS is a 10L gaming PC designed to excel in the SFF (small form factor) market. Equipped with a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2800 MHz DDR4 RAM, the G20CI will let you efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When you need more processing power, the CPU can reach up to 4.2 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. In order to enjoy games at their best, you'll need a dedicated graphics card. Thankfully, the G20CI is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, which lets you enable additional graphical options as well as crank up in-game visual settings. Furthermore, by using the DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and Dual Link DVI connections on the rear, you'll be able to connect multiple displays at resolutions up to 7680 x 4320 @ 60 Hz for enhanced multitasking and the ability to run AAA gaming titles at high graphics settings.

For storage, this system has a 512GB SSD. Should you need more, you can connect external storage devices or other peripherals using its one USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, or six USB 3.0 Type-A ports. You'll be able to connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet jack for a more reliable and stable connection, and whether you run out of USB ports or would rather keep your desk free of cable clutter, you can pair compatible peripherals and devices to this system with Bluetooth 4.1 technology. PCIe peripherals can be connected using a single PCIe x16 slot. Additionally, an 8x Slim SuperMulti DVD drive will let you read and write optical media. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit), and included is a USB keyboard, a USB mouse, dual internal 180W and 230W power supplies, and a power cord.

General Features

Intel 7th Generation Kaby Lake Processor
The Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processor performs better and is more efficient than the previous generation of processors, allowing you take on demanding tasks, play games at high settings, watch videos in 4K UHD, and even create 3D models.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Graphics Card
The G20CI desktop computer features a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM that will let you enable additional graphical options as well as crank up in-game visual settings so you can enjoy games at their best. There are also multiple video interfaces so you can connect more screens for enhanced multitasking capabilities.
NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround
The ROG G20 gives you an added dimension to gaming with NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround for a fully immersive, stereoscopic 3D experience. ROG G20 also supports displays with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's refresh rate with the G20's NVIDIA GTX graphics card for smooth visuals. This helps gets rid of lag, minimizes frame-rate stutter, and eliminates visual tearing.
This system is compatible with VR headsets driven by NVIDIA VRWorks technologies.
The ROG G20 isn't just powerful, it's also quiet and runs at just 22 dB when idle.
Heat Management
The ROG G20 is designed with no visible side exhaust vents to keep the chassis neat and clean. It has an integrated thermal design that takes advantage of natural convection and also has a hidden airflow channel that helps ensures efficient heat management. The airflow channel draws air from the bottom of the chassis, while the GPU fan vents hot air out to the back of the chassis. Two additional internal fans and copper pipes further enhance heat dissipation through fins at the top of the chassis. All these little details help in keeping the G20 cool and stable during marathon gaming sessions.
ASUS Aura LED Effects
The ROG G20 has a design that features a matte-black finish, aggressive lines, and Mayan-inspired markings. The chassis has customizable LED effects across three zones, allowing you to tailor them to reflect the feel of the game you're currently playing. There is multi-color cycle play, pulse effects, and wave effects.
ASUS Aegis III Utility
The Aegis III application features a user-friendly interface designed to help you monitor performance and groups all hardware functions and third-party software onto a main dashboard. It helps you track CPU/memory use, download and upload status, and warns you if the system exceeds temperature and voltage thresholds. You can set temperature and voltage thresholds, and leave the system to maintain them automatically. Choose from different LED lighting effects with easy access to the ASUS Aura control panel. Boost Launcher automatically frees up CPU and RAM resources to ensure smooth gameplay.
SonicMaster-Optimized Gaming Audio
SonicMaster audio combines hardware and software technology to deliver an immersive audio experience where you'll be able to pinpoint enemies based on their audio cues. It includes five different presets so you can adjust it to your current application. They include: war room, soundscape, battlefield, action, and multimedia.
Intel Gigabit Ethernet with GameFirst IV
ROG GameFirst IV is designed to help with gaming-related processes and applications. Multi-Gate Teaming combines the onboard 3T3R Wi-Fi with Intel Gigabit Ethernet so you get the most out of your online experience. It helps manage multiple gateway network connections and assigns connections for every application for smooth online performance.

The Smart Learning feature takes note of your most frequently used apps and software and optimizes network bandwidth and selects the best network connections accordingly. When you fire up a game, it sets the network requirements of all other applications to low priority. Once the game session ends, it automatically allocates the bandwidth to other applications that were previously running in the background. The App Identification function takes note of an unidentified app and sends it to the server for verification.

ROG GameFirst IV also has updated network monitoring tools. The Wi-Fi Analyzer helps find nearby hotspots; Gateway Information displays gateway hierarchy; and Connections allows users to set preferred path assignments for various applications.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
