15 ASUS Products Nominated for 2013 CES Innovations Awards
Leading consumer electronics exhibition recognizes the creative and people-focused design of ASUS products with a wide range of nominations in multiple categories
Wireless and mobile productsThe recently unveiled PadFone 2 has been nominated for an Innovations Award in the Wireless Handsets category. Chosen for its unique combination of smartphone and notebook, PadFone 2 delivers unparalleled mobile flexibility and an impressive array of high-end specifications.
The equally trailblazing Taichi™ dual-screen notebook secured a nomination in the Tablets, E-readers, and Mobile Computing category, with the judging panel acknowledging its daring design and entirely new approach to mobile PCs.
The Zen-inspired and ultra-sleek Zenbook Ultrabook™ turns heads yet again, with both the UX21A and UX31A nominated for a Computer Hardware and Components award. In the same category, the VivoTab™ tablet also received a nomination for its lightweight, ultra-portable, design and dockable keyboard with its own secondary battery.
Winning insightThe CES judging panel announced the ASUS Designo Series MX279H 27-inch monitor as a contender in the Computer Peripherals category. With a frameless design and wide 178-degree viewing angle, the Designo Series delivers superlative image quality with bright, accurate colors. Sound quality is astounding, too — thanks to ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®.
The Designo Series MX299Q 29-inch display has also been entered for consideration in the Video Displays award group, accompanied by the ProArt Series PA249Q 24-inch monitor. ASUS display products are industry leading, thanks to their high image quality, IPS display technology and adoption of higher resolution standards, as well as their meticulous user-centric design.
Taking care of gamersCES judges selected three Republic of Gamers (ROG) products in the Gaming Hardware and Accessories category. Leading these is the ROG G Series G46VW gaming notebook, a feat of creative engineering that packs unmitigated gaming power into a compact and mobile 14-inch form factor, combined with sophisticated Smart Cooling technology and SonicMaster audio.
The ROG Vulcan PRO headset has also been nominated in the Gaming Hardware and Accessories category. Offering the world’s only gaming-specific active noise-cancellation technology, superior comfort for prolonged gaming sessions and mobility-enabling capabilities, the ROG Vulcan PRO features the ROG Spitfire USB audio processor, plus a detachable microphone and cable. The third ROG product nominated in this category is the GX1000 gaming mouse, notable for such gamer-tuned features as a carefully weighted design and extreme sensitivity.
The powerful ROG TYTAN CG8890 desktop PC also impressed CES judges with its aggressive styling, all-core processor overclocking and innovative expanding case design with ten-way cross airflow cooling. The TYTAN CG8890 delivers a new standard in pre-built gaming desktop excellence.
Celebrating componentsTrue to its origins, ASUS stands as the world’s best-selling and most award-winning motherboard brand. This trend is set to continue with CES 2013, with two ASUS motherboards nominated for Computer Hardware and Components awards. The ROG Maximus V Formula motherboard features patent-pending Fusion Thermo Solution technology for both air and liquid cooling, alongside GameFirst II network bandwidth management and SupremeFX IV audio. The second nominee, the TUF Series SABERTOOTH Z77, features the extreme thermal resilience and stability that are staples of the rugged ASUS TUF range.
Peripherals in focusTwo ASUS accessories received 2013 CES Innovations Awards nominations in the Computer Peripherals category. The eye-catching and transformable VariDrive marries an upright slot-loading DVD reader/writer with an expansion dock that provides USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA and Ethernet ports. The Audio Dock is the second nominee — a stylish and compact product that augments the sound capabilities of portable PCs through a simple docking mechanism.
