The GR8 II is powered by the latest desktop-grade 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor with 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 memory - more than enough processing power for today's AAA gaming titles.

A M.2 solid-state drive and a 2.5-inch hard disk drive provide a combination of fast data read and write speeds, along with large storage capacities for your game and media libraries. It also includes ASUS Aura Sync lighting effects and other gaming-centric features. With all these features, GR8 II is a force to be reckoned with.

Ultra-Gampact Gaming, Anywhere

ROG GR8 II is a console-sized 4-liter gaming PC that is ideal for any room, and can be connected to your TV for big screen entertainment. It's also compact and light enough to bring and dominate at LAN parties.

Stylish gaming aesthetics

ROG GR8 II has a bold spacecraft-inspired design with a matte black finish. Compact and aggressively-designed, the GR8 II features chiseled, sharply-angled side panels and a Plasma Copper-colored mid-frame for an eye-catching aesthetic that stands out among other gaming desktops. Additional design elements include a perfectly-framed ROG logo on the side panel, along with distinctive markings and dynamic ASUS Aura effects on three areas across the front face of the chassis.

Custom desktop-grade ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 graphics

ROG GR8 II has the most advanced graphics in its class, creating immersive gaming worlds with super-smooth visuals and rich, vibrant colors. Its custom ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card utilizes NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture to provide 3x faster graphics performance versus previous-generation graphics cards for breakthrough VR experiences.

The GR8 II performed 47% better than similar GTX 960-equippped gaming PCs, and 10% better than GTX 970-equipped gaming PCs. It ran Overwatch in 2K and Full HD resolutions at an average frame rate of 70 fps.

Built for VR!

ROG GR8 II is built for Virtual Reality. Its VR-ready GeForce GTX 1060 GPU boosts speed and power efficiency for brilliant VR performance, while the Intel Core i7 processor decreases frame rendering latency.

Plug-and-play compatibility with leading VR headsets driven by NVIDIA VRWorks™ technologies lets you experience immersive environments with VR audio as well as physics and haptics, so you'll hear and feel every moment. Strap on your VR headset, fire up GR8 II and enjoy smooth, low-latency and stutter-free VR worlds.

Expanding your gaming experience

ROG GR8 II features two HDMI ports, so you can hook up two displays for your Twitch streaming session and chat room. You can even play games at their highest settings on up to three HD displays simultaneously through DisplayPort. NVIDIA 3D Vision™ technology adds an extra dimension to your gaming experience. All you need is a pair of 3D glasses for an even more immersive gaming and movie-watching experience.

GR8 II is also NVIDIA G-SYNC™-compatible. G-SYNC synchronizes your display's refresh rate with GR8 II's GeForce GTX graphics card for ultra-smooth visuals. G-SYNC helps avoid lag, minimizes frame-rate stutter and eliminates visual tearing. It delivers the smoothest and fastest gaming graphics - all without affecting system performance!

Desktop-grade 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor

ROG GR8 II is powered by a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor for unprecedented levels of gaming and multi-tasking performance. This latest iteration delivers an 8% performance boost versus the previous generation.
Advanced four-core processing power and Turbo Boost provides 14% faster speeds - so you get more done in less time.
In addition, DDR4 SDRAM provides speeds up to 2.1 GT/s - twice that of DDR3 - for increased system stability. The GR8 II has the power to run games at their highest visual settings: Play 4K UHD videos and or run 3D modeling programs -the GR8 ll can handle it all.

Game cool, play silent!

ROG GR8 II has a specially-tuned cooling system with an optimized airflow design, copper heat pipes and dual fans to purge heat from the system. Cleverly-designed vents and dedicated chambers for the processor and graphics card ensure the right amount of airflow to each component to provide you with stable performance for non-stop gaming marathons.

ROG GR8 II draws less than 30W at idle and delivers quiet performance, with noise levels of 23dB at idle. This low- noise design makes it perfect for your living room or bedroom.

Best Gaming Storage - Less waiting, more gaming!

ROG GR8 II can be specified with a M.2 PCIe solid-state drive and a 2.5-inch hard disk drive. The latest M.2 SSD provides data speeds of up to 10Gbps. That's 3x faster than SATA SSDs - so your system boots up and launches games faster. You get the best of both worlds, with the speed afforded by the M.2 SSD and the large storage capacities offered by the 2.5-inch HDD.

Speed up your game loading time - RAMCache II

Uniquely intelligent technology that effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds, getting to work the moment it's activated. RAMCache II turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times -- and of course it's compatible with the latest NVM Express storage options!
Smart mode: Automatically caches all your storage devices at the same time for optimal use of your system's caching resources.

ASUS Aura Sync - A Symphony of Light!

ASUS Aura Sync takes RGB lighting to the next level, offering 12 ROG synchronization modes for ROG peripherals including keyboards and mice, and 10 different lighting effects. With a color palette comprising of 8 million colors, the dynamic Aura Sync lets you tailor the LED zones to reflect the feel of the game you're currently playing.

Best Gaming Audio - Shielded audio, superior sound - SupremeFX

ROG GR8 II's awesome SupremeFX audio technology has levelled up, delivering an exceptional 103dB signal-to-noise ratio on the line-in connection for the very best recording quality. An ultra-low distortion Texas Instruments RC4580 op amplifier helps bring out the minute audio details, even when you're listening through headphones! These features all add up for truly immersive audio.

Intuitive audio-tuning suite - Sonic Studio III

ROG GR8 II's Sonic Studio III audio-effects station has an intelligent routing feature made for streaming. The new routing feature ports streams to different outputs, giving you full control over who hears what. With Sonic Studio III, you now can share your exciting in-game moments without worrying about frivolous DCMA takedown requests. In addition to that, Sonic Studio III also comes with app-level preferences for instant audio profiles, and improved noise filtering for conversations with total clarity!

Scan and detect to dominate - Sonic Radar III

We've given Sonic Radar III an overhaul, evolving the audio engine to process sounds more accurately than ever, ensuring you're always aware of what's going on around you - and we've even added an onscreen arrow to help you pinpoint the enemy's position instantly! See the origin of key in-game sounds and hone your enemy-pinpointing skills. Plus the new audio boost feature provides filters that let you hear even the faintest sounds, so you can become the hunter, not the hunted!

Best Gaming Networking - More throughput and less CPU usage for great gaming experiences with Intel Gigabit Ethernet

ROG GR8 II Gaming features the very latest Intel Ethernet (I219-V) for faster, smoother gaming. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of reducing CPU overhead while offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for gaming.

Team up to banish lag - GameFirst IV

GameFirst IV optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming - and now we've added Multi-Gate Teaming to team all your networks for maximum bandwidth and the smoothest-ever gameplay. You'll also enjoy the all-new Intelligent mode, which automatically compiles a database by parsing new app data to ensure that every game is optimized for the best performance.

Next-level 802.11ac Wi-Fi with 2x2 dual-band 2.4/5GHz antennas offer up to 867Mbps transfer speeds, while the very latest MIMO technology ensures that every connected user experiences the fastest wireless and online speeds!
The two Wi-Fi antennas of the ROG GR8 II are situated on top of the chassis for better signal transmission, and are properly shielded between the plastic and metal cases to prevent interference from other components.

Frequently asked questions

Can I swap out parts and/or change/remove Operating systems in a PB Tech PC?

We can add any part to a PC for a small fee as long as we don't need to remove an existing part for it to fit, for example adding more RAM, an extra hard drive, or adding a graphics card to a PC without one (we can even SLI/Crossfire for you if it is compatible). We cannot change components that are part of an existing build e.g. Upgrade an existing graphics card or add a SSD with Windows installed if the PC only has a single hard drive (as the OS is already pre-installed). If you do have a specific requirement, then one of our experienced sales team will be happy to build a system that suits your needs.
