Kicking things off is an update to ASUS’s mental water-cooled ROG GX700 gaming laptop. Now dubbed the GX800, this monster now packs a pair of “the latest GeForce SLI GPU” plus an Intel K-series CPU for awesome desktop-like performance.

Next, ASUS revealed the ROG G31 Edition 10 which the company says is pound-for-pound the most powerful compact gaming desktop in the world. It isn’t hard to see why considering they’re featuring a pair of NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards in 2-way SLI.

The G31’s case also features a futuristic design with Mayan-inspured markings and ROG-exclusive 3D vapour-chamber thermal technology to keep the system cool and quiet. For audiophiles, the G31 comes with a dedicated ESS audio DAC and amplifier headphone jack that delivers Hi-Fi grade audio to a gaming headset.
