The Strix GA35 and GT35: Boosted by RTX Graphics

Armed with up to a ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card, the GA35
and GT35 delivers reliably high frame rates for the latest games. The
GPU in this top-of-the-line card is based on the NVIDIA Turing™
architecture, which mixes CUDA cores for traditional rasterization with
RT cores for ray tracing, and Tensor cores for accelerated AI, including
noise removal. When paired with compatible games, this combination
enables faster antialiasing and higher-quality lighting, shadows, and

ROG Strix elevates the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti’s graphics prowess with a
huge 2.7-slot heatsink capped by three Axial-tech fans that help the
card maintain high clocks in the heat of battle.

Serious 16-core power with the Strix GA35

The Strix GA35 offers powerful 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen processors up to
the Ryzen 9 3950X CPU, with its cutting-edge 7nm technology doubling the
number of cores of the previous generation. With 16 cores and 32
threads, the additional cores make the system more responsive under
strenuous loads, and accelerate heavily multithreaded work like video
encoding and 3D rendering. The Strix GT35 will feature the latest 10th
generation of Intel Core processors for users looking for multitasking
mastery when it comes to gaming and streaming.

The CPU sits in a ROG Strix X570-F Gaming motherboard with a fine-tuned
VRM that delivers clean and reliable current. Substantial heatsinks keep
the VRM cool, while closed-loop liquid cooling channels heat from the
CPU to a dual-fan radiator that exhausts out the top of the chassis. The
processor is unlocked for overclocking, so gamers can push for even
higher performance.

With up to 64GB of high-performance DDR4-3200 memory, the GA35 can
simultaneously handle smooth gameplay while live-streaming, recording,
and multitasking. A NVMe SSD with up to 1TB of capacity offers plenty of
space, and the Strix GA35 further accelerate throughput using the latest
PCI Express® 4.0 interface.

For additional upgrades, GA35’s two PCIe x16 slots are connected
directly to the CPU and support multi-GPU configurations. External
hot-swap bays simplifies storage upgrades and allows for easy SSD
removal in tournament settings, while one of the motherboard’s dual M.2
slots is available for a second SSD for more space. The chassis also has
room for two 3.5-inch HDDs that can increase total storage capacity.

Superb gaming and streaming on the Strix GA15 and GT15

To run the latest titles at high resolutions or faster refresh rates,
the Strix GA15 and GT15 are available with powerful graphics cards up to
the NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2070 SUPER. This performance is due in part to
the NVIDIA Turing™ architecture behind the GeForce RTX series.

The GA15 uses the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, while the GT15
leverages the upcoming 10th Gen Intel Core processors. The Strix GA15 is
available with up to an AMD® Ryzen™ 7 3800X CPU that has 8 cores and 16
threads to easily handle demanding and varied workloads. Top
configurations add up to 32GB of high-performance DDR4-3200MHz RAM,
ensuring responsiveness even under heavy loads.

Storage options include a superfast M.2-based NVMe SSD up to 1TB,
offering ample room for apps. For larger game libraries, the system is
available with 2TB of mechanical storage. Users can download AMD StoreMI
Technology to accelerate dual-drive configurations. StoreMI caches the
frequently accessed data on the SSD, melding the responsiveness of
solid-state storage with the massive capacity of mechanical drives to
speed up load times.

Next-level cooling carries performance for latest ROG Strix gaming

The newest lineup of ROG Strix gaming desktops combine robust component
cooling with a chassis optimized for superior airflow. The Wind Shear
design on the GA35 and GT35 features widened air vents that help draw
more air through the internal cooling system.

The internal storage also has dedicated cooling to facilitate reliable
performance. The motherboard’s dual M.2 SSD slots feature heatsinks that
can improve sustained throughput and long-term reliability. For even
more strenuous storage loads, the Strix X570-F Gaming motherboard has a
header for an M.2 fan that enables direct airflow through active cooling.

The GA15 and GT15 chassis is a more compact variation with a
dual-chamber design of the airflow-enhancing Wind Shear design featured
in the high-end Strix GA35 and GT35. The cooling is efficient enough
that the Strix GA35 and Strix GA15 generated noise levels under 35 dB in
an internal gaming test with Metro Exodus.

The full lineup of ROG Strix gaming desktops elegantly integrates a
carrying handle into the top of the chassis that’s strong enough to bear
sustained force of up to 30kgf, making them easier to carry. The slick
hidden headphone hook helps keep tournament setups and battlestations
clean; it’s tested to hold headsets up to 3kg, and can survive momentary
force up to 10kgf.

Personalize to perfection

The Strix GA35 is the first ROG system to feature new Keystone II
technology. Introduced with the ROG Strix III and Hero III gaming
laptops introduced in spring of 2019, the Keystone is an NFC-enabled key
can be docked in compatible devices to quickly access customized
settings linked to a user’s ROG ID. Keystone II can also be configured
to switch the system to a specific operating mode, launch an individual
game or application, or unlock a hidden Shadow Drive for private files.

In terms of personalized lighting, the full lineup of new Strix gaming
desktops feature customizable RGB lighting inside and out. Aura Sync
lets users coordinate colors and effects across all compatible
components, including ROG peripherals and components. The internal
lighting showcases the components through the transparent EMI-shielded
glass side panel.

ROG Armoury Crate software offers tons of tuning options for lighting,
Keystones and other system settings. Users can create Scenario Profiles
that automatically load personal preferences when they launch specific
games and applications. Scenario Profiles detect the active application
and adjust system performance, cooling, lighting, and other settings to
ensure an ideal configuration for the task at hand. And for a more
personalized audio experience, Sonic Studio III supports manual
customization and offers five specially tuned modes for different kinds
of games in addition to more immersive audio.

Gear up and go

While most peripherals connect around the back, front-panel ports
provide convenient access for select devices. The GA35 and GT35’s dual
USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports provide fast access to speedy external
storage, while dual USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports are ready for more
conventional devices. Around back, there are 6 additional ports,
including one more USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C.

Dual HDMI 2.0b ports on the graphics card allows gamers to run a VR
headset alongside a 4K monitor or TV for immersive virtual experiences.
On GA35 and GT35 configurations with GeForce graphics cards, DisplayPort
1.4 outputs offer connectivity for NVIDIA G-SYNC™ gaming monitors that
make gameplay even smoother. Intel® I211-AT Gigabit Ethernet offers a
lower latency connections for multiplayer gaming, while Wi-Fi 5 provides
fast wireless access for everyday streaming and web browsing. The Wi-Fi
card also integrates Bluetooth 5 for compatible devices.

The GA15 and GT15 also offer fast charging and data transfer via one
reversible Type-C™ (USB-C™) port with peak interface bandwidth of 10Gbps
via USB 3.2 Gen 2. Five Type-A USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports make space for
preferred peripherals and any other devices that benefit from fast data
transfers. There’s an HDMI 2.0b port for gaming or streaming 4K video on
the big screen at up to 60Hz. DisplayPort 1.4 outputs are also available
to drive high-refresh gaming monitors, including those compatible with
NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology.

Gigabit-class networking manifests in two ways on the GA15 and GT15.
Gigabit Ethernet offers a lower latency connection for multiplayer
gaming, while Wi-Fi 5 provides fast wireless access for everyday
streaming and web browsing. The Wi-Fi card also integrates Bluetooth 5
to cut the cord for compatible devices.



The ROG Strix GA35 and GA15 will be available starting from Q1 2020.
