    Asus ROG Tytan G30 Gaming PC

    Asus have always been a manufacturer that have listened to the needs and wants of gamers. With their various lines, they have managed to carve out a very solid position in the PC gaming market. And now, with their new series of prebuilt gaming PCs, they’re sure to get people’s attention yet again.

    In all fairness, this isn’t the first ROG Tytan that we’ve seen. Several months ago we got to see the flagship of the range, complete with side panels that opened up when the overclocking feature was enabled and a brutish power that left us quite giddy. This particular Tytan, the G30AK, is the smaller brother of that machine… but times have moved on, and the specs of the updated Tytans are impressive. In fact, the G30 outstrips the last Tytan we saw quite significantly.


    The general problem with prebuilt machines is that the spec isn’t always what you’re after. That isn’t the case here… the G30’s spec list reads almost like a wish list.

    At its core, the G30AK has either an i5 or i7 CPU, and can handle up to 32GB of RAM (see, options). The model we tested ran smoothly with 16GB of RAM, and showed of its performance via a GeForce GTX760 with 3GB of VRAM. Storage came by way of a 1TB HDD and 128GB SSD.

    As far as ports go, you couldn't wish for more… a total of six USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, as well as 8 channel audio, a multi-card reader and much more is on offer in this impressive and stylish package.

    But what’s most impressive here is the way that everything works together. Asus have designed this machine to be a real performer, and for those that want that extra bit of punch, they’ve added a hassle-free, safe overclocking feature that is as easy as pressing one button. Literally.

    With a press of the “speed” button, the cool blue accent lights turn a blazing red, and the CPU is jacked up to deliver a maximum of 4.5GHz. That’s pretty impressive, when all is said and done. The real beauty, of course, is that the overclocking system was designed by people who know what they’re doing. So while the strain on the machine might be increased (you don’t want to run in this mode constantly, of course) it is done so in a way that isn’t going to have your Tytan explode. Rather, it shows a demonstrable boost in performance, which is a big win. Even the chassis (a good looking box overall) has been specifically designed to meet the needs of this system. In short, it’s a perfectly tuned PC, right out of the box.

    While the thought of a prebuilt PC may be anathema to you, there are many reasons why the G30 is a fantastic way to go. It’s performance overall really is top notch.
