In addition to the ASUS ROG Huracan G21, ASUS also launched two new ROG Strix desktops, the ROG Strix GL12 and ROG Strix GL10. Unlike the ROG Huracan’s unique design, the ROG Strix desktops feature more conventional aesthetics but sport specifications that are equally powerful under the hood.

ROG Strix GL12

The higher end of the duo, the ROG Strix GL12 comes in two configurations, one with a GeForce RTX 2080 and one with a GeForce RTX 2060. Aside from that, both systems feature a similar design and pretty much the same specifications.

Overclocking is possible on the ROG Strix GL12 desktops, and since they come with a liquid AIO, you might be able to push it quite a bit. The GeForce RTX 2080-powered variant will be available starting August, while the RTX 2060 version will come in July.

ROG Strix GL10

Arguably the better looking of the duo, the ROG Strix GL10 features pared back specifications. Priced from just RM2499, the ROG Strix GL10 is for gamers who are looking for a system to game on without much bells and whistles.

The entire range of ROG Strix GL10 configurations are expected to arrive in August 2019.

Pokdepinion: I prefer the ROG Strix GL10’s looks but the ROG Strix GL12’s specs are much better… Hm.
