Asus launched ROG Strix GL12CX, the world's first desktop that uses the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics engine. The Asus ROG Strix GL12CX will go on sale globally from December 2018. However, the Taiwanese tech company hasn't shared details on how much the gaming device will cost.

This ROG Strix GL12CX desktop features an Intel CPU factory overclock and is equipped with an Intel Core i9 9900K. ROG Strix GL12CX has a liquid cooling system that is intended to provide the uninterrupted and reliable performance the company wants. Asus also added that with 8 cores and 16 threads, the new Intel processors will be able to deliver high frame rate gaming while live streaming, recording gameplay and being able to run other applications. ROG Strix GL12CX has sharp corners on the front and top of the case. The desktop also comes with Armory Crate software, which will allow users to customize the RGB lighting. Furthermore, Aura Sync technology will allow users to synchronize the lighting system with compatible peripherals such as keyboard, mouse, etc.

The Strix GL12CX has a hot swap SSD bay developed for e-sports gaming that sits behind its magnetic front cover, and allows for changing profiles and games. To accommodate the SSD bay hot swap demanded in e-sports tournaments, there is a DIMM.2 module that can 'hold' dual SSDs cooled by a dedicated heatsink.

The desktop is powered by the Intel Z390 chipset and runs the Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 operating system. The device also gets a 2-in-1 card reader, two USB 3.1 and two USB 2.0 ports.
