Asus, MSI are shipping overclocked GTX 1080 and 1070 GPUs to reviewers, but not customers

GTX1080-Feature2
Asus and MSI have been caught shipping cards to reviewers with slightly higher clocks by default than they’re shipping to retail customers. While the gap is minor, it’s not something we approve of on principle.

Review: The Asus G751JY-DB72 is one heck of a gaming laptop

Asus-G751JY
If you’re in the market for a high-end gaming laptop, we’d recommend considering Asus 17-inch G751JY family. While they aren’t the newest systems available, they offer G-Sync and a GTX 980M, good thermals, and fairly quiet operation.

Asus Poseidon GTX 780 review: Hybrid air/water cooling takes down the R9 295X2

AsusPoseidonFeature
Asus’ new hybrid Poseidon GPU can run on air or water — your choice — and when overclocked, it can take on AMD’s best. Not bad for the GTX 780 core.

Asus unveils 5-in-1 Android/Windows Transformer Book V tabfonetop

Asus Transformer Book V: A Windows, Android, laptop, tablet, and smartphone five-in-one!
If you thought that Microsoft’s tablet-that-turns-into-a-laptop was cool, the Asus Transformer Book V — unveiled at Computex 2014 in Taiwan — will blow your mind. Like previous 2-in-1 Transformer Books, there’s a Windows tablet that clicks into a laptop base — but now there’s also a slot on the back of the tablet for an Android smartphone! All told, this hideous three-in-one device has five modes of operation: a Windows laptop, a Windows tablet, an Android smartphone, an Android tablet, and an Android laptop. There’s no word on pricing or release date.
