The ROG G20CB has already received critical acclaim – winning the 2015 CES Innovation and iF Design awards. The G20CB sports a bold design – boasting a matte­ black finish, aggressive lines, Mayan ­inspired markings, and dynamic 8 ­million­ color LED effects. This design concept gives the computer a very futuristic look and feel.

DDR4 SDRAM provides speeds of up to 2.1GT/s — twice that of DDR3 1066 — to give you highly stable performance. There's even a USB 3.1 Type-C for data speeds of up to 10Gbit/s – twice that of USB 3.0.

The ROG G20CB also supports displays with NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's refresh rate with the G20CB's NVIDIA GTX GPU for ultra-smooth visuals. This gets rid of lag, minimizes frame-rate stutter, and eliminates visual tearing. It delivers the smoothest and fastest gaming graphics — all without affecting system performance.

Heat Management

The computer is designed with no visible side exhaust vents to keep the chassis' looking neat. It has an integrated thermal design that takes advantage of natural convection, and has a hidden airflow channel that ensures efficient heat management. The 1cm­ wide airflow channel draws air from the bottom of the chassis; while the GPU fan vents hot air out to the back of the chassis.

Two additional internal fans and copper pipes further enhance heat dissipation through fins at the top of the chassis. All these little details help in keeping the G20CB cool and stable during gaming.
