Last week, ASUS held a special preview event named “Redefine 2019,” and it featured tons of new laptops coming to the Philippines very soon!
Some of the new models are refreshes of existing laptop models, others are entirely new products that were revealed during CES 2019. Though what all these new gaming machines share are powerful specs that will definitely suit the different needs of gamers in the PH.
Without further ado, here’s a quick list of the new ASUS laptops for 2019:
ASUS TUF GAMING FX505/FX705 series
The first of the new ASUS laptops are the new TUF Gaming FX505 and FX705 series. This lineup features four devices, all of which feature up to AMD Ryzen 7 processors and latest generation NVidia GPUs. The TUF Gaming line also have displays with thin bezels, RGB-backlit keys, and military-grade toughness.
The four laptops in the refreshed TUF series include:
- FX505DT (Ryzen 5 + GTX 1650, 15.6-inch) – PHP 49,995
- FX505DT (Ryzen 7 + GTX 1650, 15.6-inch) – PHP 54,995

- FX705DU (Ryzen 7 + GTX 1650, 17.3-inch) – PHP 74,995
ROG Zephyrus G GA502
Up next is the Zephyrus G, a new model in ROG’s ultra-slim Zephryus line. The Zephyrus G has a more understated design, and it packs a Ryzen 7 + GTX 1660 Ti, meaning this will most likely be ASUS’ most wallet-friendly Zephyrus to date.
ROG Zephyrus GX502/GU502
Continuing on to more new Zephyrus models, ASUS revealed the Zephyrus S GX502 and the Zephyrus M GU502. The GX502 packs a powerful RTX 2070 GPU, all in a slim and portable package.
As for the GU502, ASUS opted for a GTX 1660 Ti GPU and a 9th gen Intel Core i7, which also has an equally slim profile.
ROG Zephryus S GX531/GX701
Now we move on to the top-end Zephyrus models! ASUS unveiled the refreshed Zephyrus S models — the GX531 and GX701. The new Zephyrus S models pack 9th Gen Intel Core processors, and they can be outfitted with a HDR 144Hz/3ms panel.
ROG Strix SCAR III/Hero III
ASUS’ beloved ROG Strix SCAR and Hero laptops are getting a makeover with the SCAR III and Hero III models. Aside from having displays with insanely thin bezels, the refreshed SCAR and Hero laptops pack Intel 9th Generation Processors with GTX Graphics, increased airflow with 3D Flow Zone, and an asymmetric cut-out lid.
ROG Strix G G531/G731
Complementing the refreshed SCAR and Hero notebooks are the ROG Strix G G531 and G731. These two laptops are positioned just a bit beneath the SCAR and Hero, with the G531 and G731 packing Intel 9th gen processors and GTX Turing 1650/1660ti Graphics cards.
ROG Mothership GZ700
Finally, we have the ASUS ROG Mothership! While it was first revealed back in CES, ASUS has just confirmed that this detachable gaming machine will be coming to the Philippines. The PH variant will feature a factory overclocked Intel Core i9-9980HK, Liquid Metal compound, and either a 4k 60hz 100% Adobe RGB or FHD 144hz/3ms display.
Aside from the TUF Gaming line, ASUS has yet to reveal the pricing for its new and its refreshed gaming laptops. Availability for these devices will also be announced at a later date. What’s for sure though is that these new ASUS gaming notebooks are comign to stores very soon!
