ASUS ROG Strix GL12 Review
The first thing that’d have your attention would be the design of the machine. Upon booting, the RGB lights immediately make themselves obvious. These lights which are planted both on the front and the interior make the case very flavorful and thanks to the glass on the left side, you can see the interior entirely. However, if you desire a more natural look, Asus has also included a iron piece for the side that’s the same color as the case. In front of the case is a magnetic cover that can be raised to reveal the CD-ROM and Esports-ready hot-swap SSD ports.
The processor of the computer is Intel Core i7 8700K. This processor is composed of 6 cores and 12 threads. While this model performs at 3.70 GHz standard, it is able to increase up to 4.70 GHz thanks to Intel’s Turbo Boost technology. The video card is one of Nvidia GeForce’s strongest, GeForce GTX1080 8GB. Asus has also acted very generously on the RAM front, the computer having 4 16 GB storage cards working at DDR4 2666MHz speed. For storage, the computer includes 512GB SSD and 1TB HDD.
The test results of this high level computer is as follows:
