Asus ViQ, the company’s flagship gaming laptop, is on sale in a wide range of colors at $1,699.
The Asus Viq is powered by a quad-core Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, 16GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
The keyboard is the same as the Asus Prime Z90-A.
The ViQ sports a glossy aluminum finish with a brushed back panel.
The price is $1.99 more expensive than the Asus prime z170-a.
In our testing, we found that the ViQ outperformed the Asus Rogue 3080 in gaming benchmarks.
It scored 5,200 points on the 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, while the Rogue scored 4,800 points.
However, the Viq outperformed both models in our ThinkPad T440s and T440t review.
In addition to gaming performance, the ASUS ViQ also offers an option for those who are looking for a laptop with a bit more power.
The Z490 offers up to six USB-C ports, while a USB 3.1 Type-C port is included.
In addition, the Z490 also comes with two USB 3 Pro ports.
The Asus Vi, Vi-q and Vi-X models are available in black, silver and red.
