Applications

The TITAN X is extremely powerful, and more than capable to handle today’s most demanding games. The GT51 is poised for the future, with the TITAN X’s suitability for driving cutting edge Virtual Reality headsets. It is envisaged that the SLI configuration would allow it to comfortably power two high-resolution displays running at 90 Hz. No mean feat. I was keen to try out the demo, but the available games are limited. However, when there’s competing VR platforms from Sony, HTC, Occulus that are lower cost, it might be hard to put forth a convincing argument to buy the ROG GT51CA.

Gaming Enhancements

The ROG GT51CA boasts an ESS Sabre headphone DAC and amp on its front audio jack to give users incredible audiophile-grade sound. It provides high dynamic range (DNR) and low noise levels for rich audio with less distortion.

The wearable ROG BAND gives users access to Shadow Drive — a hidden hard drive space for managing personal and confidential data safely. ROG BAND can also be used to activate overclocking mode. The ASUS-exclusive AEGIS II application lets gamers monitor system performance, record and edit gameplay with Gamecaster, and easily share their gaming experiences on social media.
