At Computex 2019 this week ASUS has introduced two new portable touchscreen monitors designed for gamers offering a 15.6 inch and 17.3 inch to choose from. The smaller ZenScreen Touch offers gamers a 15.6-inch 1080p touchscreen designed to be connected to mobile devices or laptops. While the larger 17.3 inch ROG Strix XG17 IPS panel portable monitor offers a 1080p resolution and is the world’s first portable 240Hz gaming monitor, ASUS explains.
A dual-purpose smart cover protects the ROG Strix XG17 screen during transit and provides a stand once you arrive at your destination offering a variety of different angles to choose from depending on your needs. Other features include USB-C ports, Micro HDMI, and a rechargeable 7,800mAh battery capable of providing up to 3 hours of gaming at 240 Hz on a single charge.
“The XG17’s monster list of high-end specifications is complemented by an immense convenience factor, and it’s been specially tailored for life on the road. Its matte panel resists fingerprints better than glossy surfaces, while the metal chassis stands up well to the jostling it’s bound to receive as it bounces around in your bag. Brushed surfaces on the back hold up well against scratches and add some subtle flair that echoes the aesthetic of our latest ROG gaming laptops.”
Unfortunately, no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for either the ZenScreen Touch or the ROG Strix XG17, but as soon as information comes to light, we will keep you updated as always.
