ASUS Republic of Gamers launches first ROG NUC in the Philippines

The ROG NUC promises great performance in a small package.

ASUS Republic of Gamers recently launched the ROG NUC gaming PC in the Philippines, promising to deliver great performance for AAA gaming and more.

For those wondering what this is exactly, a NUC stands for Next Unit of Computing (NUC), and it’s a lineup of small PCs that are designed by Intel and made by partner brands. In a way, you can think of them like Windows versions of the Apple Mac Mini.

While many NUCs are made for everyday computing, the ROG NUC is designed with gaming in mind. Despite its small size, the ROG NUC promises to run today’s popular games smoothly thanks to its Intel Core Ultra 7 or Ultra 9 CPU that’s paired with an RTX 4060 or RTX 4070 GPU.


As for its size, the ROG NUC measures 180 x 270 x 50 mm (including vertical mount stand), meaning it’s an incredibly small package. Best of all, it has a modular design that lets users easily access its inside for memory and storage upgrades. It even comes with a customizable logo ARGB logo.
