Written by

Compact but play big with the new ASUS Gaming Desktop ROG G20CB-WS71 Compact Gaming Desktop PC. Featuring a small form factor design, Core i7 Processor, and full-size NVIDIA desktop graphics, the quiet, efficient, and powerful G20 is the perfect choice for your next PC in the office or living room. ROG G20 has a 6th gen Intel Core i7 processor and Solid State Hybrid Drive to maximize your multitasking power. Get the performance to take on the most demanding tasks from playing the latest games at their highest settings to watching videos in crystal-clear 4K UHD quality.

The Oculus Ready G20CB-WS71 comes with a quad-core i7 6700 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX980 graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive coupled with a 256GB solid-state drive. This gaming desktop ready for Oculus Rift that delivers an above-average virtual reality experience. You’ll see higher frame rates and better graphics than those that sprung for a slightly less powerful processor or graphics card.

ASUS ROG G20 draws you into an immersive world of colors and visuals in WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution and letting you play games on up to four monitors. G20 even gives you an added dimension to gaming with NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround bringing a full stereoscopic 3D experience to you. What’s more, G20 is perfect for resource-heavy work apps, so you can you create awesome websites and 3D models.

Bold design that features a matte-black finish, aggressive lines, and Mayan-inspired markings. You’ve got LED lighting across the entire front of the computer, as well as underneath towards the back half of the tower. You can customize the colors here with a ton of lighting effects colors across the chassis, reflecting the feel of any game.

On the front, you’ve got your slim DVD burner along with access to a mic jack, a headphone jack, and two USB 3.0 ports. If you’re more of a rear-entry, you’ve got two each of USB 3.1, 3.0, and 2.0 ports, one HDMI out, 1 RJ45 LAN jack, 7.1 channel audio output, and two DC-in plugs for the external power supply.

Incredibly quiet, at idle it’s only 22 decibels, and even when under a decent amount of strain. The passive thermal design takes advantage of natural convection with a hidden airflow channel that ensures quiet and efficient heat management. While active cooling uses two internal fans to further enhance heat dissipation, making ROG G20 ideal for marathon gaming sessions.

ASUS Gaming Desktop – G20CB-WS71

Compact designed, packs one hell of a punch for a computer that’s about 4.1 x 14.1 x 13.4 inches (L x W x H) and weight 14 pounds. This ASUS Oculus certified gaming desktop runs quieter than any powerful PC I’ve owned and will deliver an above-average virtual reality experience with higher frame rates and better graphics. In fact, you could build a gaming PC with the same component at the lower cost but I think it’s an unbeatable value for the Oculus Ready lineup.

Ok, what is the Oculus Ready? It means this PCs have undergone a stringent test to ensure that ports, firmware, operating system and other features are up to Oculus standards, provide users with truly immersive virtual reality gaming experiences. Tailor-made for Virtual Reality, so you know that it’s good to go once you hook it up to your Oculus Rift headset (sold separately). Welcome to the future of VR, it’s time to get your head in the game!
