asus rog zephyrus duo 15

Touchscreen laptops are ten a penny these days and even secondary displays aren’t the most unusual sight. But with the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15, Asus has taken this tech and shaped it specifically for gaming, making one of the most versatile gaming laptops we’ve ever seen. While the main screen can be your choice of 4K 60Hz or a 1920x1080 300Hz panel – aimed at content creation and twitch gameplay respectively – the second screen is a 60Hz 3840x1100 touchscreen that raises up by 13 degrees to be a handy panel for third-party apps or in-game overlays. The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 ain’t no one-trick pony though: it’s every inch a high-end gaming laptop, with a 10th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card, up…

editor’s letter

Days with virtual meetings and evenings with Netflix... What started as a harsh reality is now the new normal. We spend our days attending webinars and virtual meetings while the evenings are reserved for entertainment in front of our Smart TVs and mobile devices. And going by how things are, it seems it may take a longer time than expected for us to return to our old selves. That said, tech hasn’t slowed down in a pandemic. We still see several smartphones being launched in the market along with laptops, TVs and smartwatches. For new launches, Xiaomi introduced their first Mi Notebook and Lenovo updating its IdeaPad range for the Indian market. New phones from Oppo and Motorola while Samsung launching their new tablet. For automobile fans, a Maybach and Lamborghini are waiting…

DOCTORED DOCK The Surface Dock 2 expands the output options and boosts DisplayPort bit rates to support two 4K external monitors running at 60Hz. The only thing you won’t find is Thunderbolt 3 – Microsoft has security concerns, so it’s left it off for now. “A terrific hybrid machine suited to tackling any task” OPTIONAL OPTICS Pay a little more and you can boost the graphics power beyond Intel’s Iris Plus chipset – the 13-inch version can run an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Max-Q as an upgrade, while the 15-inch comes with a GTX 1660Ti or, for business power, a Quadro RTX 3000 – but that’ll cost you. TABLET TIME The hinge is secure enough to make the fully assembled Surface Book 3 feel like a dedicated laptop – pull off the tablet screen and you…

g-class warfare

Back in 1979, Mercedes introduced a stripped-down, rugged SUV, built to survive anything nature could throw at it. It was called the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen, or G-Wagen for short. In the subsequent 40 years, it’s been used by various militaries around the world, ferried sheep around Swiss fields, and more recently become a status symbol for the rich and famous. The latest model may look familiar but in fact it has an all-new body, chassis, suspension, steering, engine, gearbox and driver aids, transforming the G-Class’s comfort and driving characteristics while retaining its historic off-road ability. For a start, the new G-Class is 53mm longer and 121mm wider than the outgoing model. It feels like a tank on and off-road, giving you a sense of invincibility while you’re sitting inside the luxurious and high-tech…

yamaha wr 155 r things to know

1 Design The Yamaha WR 155 R gets its design and styling cues from the WR series, mainly the WR250R that is sold in other international markets. A semi-double-cradle frame supports the engine and sports minimalistic bodywork just like a motocross to keep it as lightweight as possible. The bike gets a narrow 8.1-litre fuel tank, an upswept exhaust, and the feature of using the indicators as a hazard lamp to support its dual-sport nature. The kerb-weight of the motorcycle is just 134 kg. 2 Suspension and Brakes The suspension set-up consists of a 41-mm telescopic fork at the front while the rear has been equipped with a gas-assisted, linked-type monoshock with adjustable preload.
