All Asus ROG Phone Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2019
Thanks for this, very informative
Not sure how to read that but a 9900k on that board hits 5.1Ghz on all cores with no problems just need good cooling..
I have this motherboard, bought it on launch. Even thought it's working perfectly fine, It's expensive for the specs (I saw the reviews AFTER building my PC). The 8 power phase is "semi-fake" because it's working in pairs. The hardware has definitely 8 power phases, but the software (BIOS) uses them as 4 power phases "beef'd up". Gigabyte won the Z390 chipset war, they have the best mobos of this generation (true power phases, vrm temperatures, etc).
My 💓 stopped few seconds when I thought this is Rog 2.
I thought ROG 2 too.
I jumped the gun. Thought it was the ROG 2. (annoyed)
...how very dare you, it is SoL field of expertise (shock)
Sold it yesterday. Some guy travelled 20 miles to my address and paid cash! Saved myself £100 on Ebay fees.
Some mug bought it 😁
Why would someone buy it from you for a grand off ebay when it's £830 direct from Asus? https://uk.store.asus.com/asus-rog-gaming-phone-ii-zs660kl-6-59-fhd-wide-view-120hz-1ms-display-snapdragon-855-12gb-ram-512gb-storage-6000-mah-battery.html I had a look on ebay and happened to see a listing with the images you posted here and same name, not stalking you! ha. Not keen on the phone then?
Massive downgrade in comparison with S9. Go for S10 or OnePlus 7
Currently that price on mi.com/uk
Ahh good shout I'll check it out. Thank you.
Yeah, I'd prefer the mix 2s for £254?
Sorry for hijacking the thread. I'm in need of a new phone. I currently have a S9 and the the MI8 looked good
It's down atm will be back on the 15th! Please for the love of god dont buy a 2070S now haha. The Aib 5700 XT pulse is out on the 15th, save yourself £100 and it's basically the same card but OCs better.
I'd like to know about this £320 deal - was about to get a 2070 Super for 500+, so I'm all ears!
Not even a 2060s is half.... cheapest one of those is £380. Nvidia are trying to fleece us and we should all vote with our feet.
How about cost?
32bit and S3TC to start with.
Ridiculous price. I saw a zotac amp RTX 2070 like new for £340 after the 20% yesterday. You just gotta look around for those warehouse deals, they're best value imo.
I believe he's avin a little jokles to imself
You are deeply mistaken, this is not the super but standard 2060. This is the usual price for that model.
What profit? New 2060 Super refresh costs around £370. You get 20% perf boost for 30-40 difference
It's July. Apparently you haven't been keeping up with the month we are in, let alone what are comparable processors..... It doesn't matter what AMD call their processors. You compared a high end Intel CPU to a mid range AMD one, to cast the AMD processor in a poor light and disparage it's performance. This is useful how? This is like comparing a Bentley Continental 'GT' to a VW Golf 'GT' based on what? They are both called GT and therefore they are comparable? People might think they are comparable because they share a name badge? They might, until they did a tiny bit of research and it became apparent they clearly aren't in the same segment....... You claiming to know better- so you should not make such a comparison. It's worthless to the point you were attempting to form. Your reading comprehension is also severely lacking. Nowhere did I say that the GTX1060 was 'pants' in this discussion. I did however point out it was definitely slower than the GTX1660Ti Max Q in this. The tests on the website you link to between laptops rarely give perfect representative comparisons. Because so many variants of laptops exist it can be difficult to test GPU like for like. They frequently are not paired with an identical CPU and memory configuration. What's more cooling and thermal power limits can vary performance between laptops even sharing identical hardware. Therefore those tests are a rough guide only. Anyone that uses them as a perfect representation is seriously mistaken. There is however more to this than meets the eye: AC:Odyssey benchmarks interestingly are something you are clinging to and for good reason- it's garbage. The game is unoptimised and so heavily CPU reliant which favours Intel. Ok, that's how some fairly bad ports are, but the benchmark used to produce these results is also garbage and useless, since it does not give out consistent results one run to the next: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/software/assassin_s_creed_odyssey_pc_performance_review/6 Your obsession with the Medion is somewhat disturbing. I pointed out extensively why this machine costs more: it's blatantly better specced in multiple areas! Overall it's a faster gaming machine, when you don't use a horribly CPU limited title coupled to a shonky benchmark.... That doesn't make the Medion a bad proposition. But that machine also doesn't make this bad value at £268 more.
By Has June 15th been declared National Let's Be Obtuse Day because it's beginning to feel like that. First off Intel have i3, i5 & i7. AMD have (surprise, surprise!) Ryzen 3, 5 & 7. Yes they could call them whatever but importantly THEY DON'T! And guess what, people who are not IT experts assume a degree of equivalence. Second, you can compare anything to anything. Really! I am not in breach of some supremely ordained book of rules by comparing an R7 to an i7. In fact both Notebookcheck & Jarrod Tech did exactly that. And lest you have forgotten, it's not that long ago that i7's had FOUR cores; not six. Third, regarding Medion vs ASUS, I've owned three of the former & one of the latter. TBH, I found them indistinguishable in terms of built quality & reliability. And finally, that 'pants' 1060 GPU in the Medion appears to play AC Odyssey at 40 FPS (1080p & ultra). So 3 FPS more for £268 less. Dont believe me? Have a read of this... https://www.notebookcheck.net/Assassin-s-Creed-Odyssey-Notebook-and-Desktop-Benchmarks.337682.0.html Pwned!
It wasn't logical to compare a high end expensive CPU only seen in high end machines to the CPU in this. AMD can name their processors whatever they want, it doesn't mean they correlate identically to whatever Intel name theirs. AMD can call their processors the Ryzen 777777777, it doesn't mean you compare it to an Intel i7 if it's not in the same tier...... That is made clear when you view the spec sheet, AMD might have call it a Ryzen 7, but it clearly only has 4 cores. Whereas the Intel has 6 cores, is much higher end, and much more expensive. Yes, the Medion is cheaper. They also typically have pants build quality in my experience. It's heavier, it has a much fatter case, the screen has has thicker bezels, it's SSD is smaller, it's screen is inferior, it's GPU is much slower, it'll be considerably slower for games, and that's why it is £268 less than this. Often when it comes to computers you pay £268 more then you expect the machine to be faster and better specced. Sure enough, this Asus is way better specced and justifies the £268 comfortably ............... (y)
Funny, I thought what I said was all perfectly clear & logical. This machine uses a Ryzen 7. Note the last digit. It conveys the suggestion that it competes against the Intel i7 (the lowest variant currently on sale being the i7-9750H). It does not. It functions more like an i5. The guys at Notebookcheck say there's only a few percent difference between the R7 3750H & the R5 3550H (see link)... https://www.notebookcheck.net/Not-worth-it-AMD-Ryzen-7-3750H-is-only-4-to-8-percent-faster-than-the-Ryzen-5-3550H.426841.0.html Am I surprised that the expensive i7-9750 beats the cheaper R7 3750H? Not really but if there's essentially the same CPU being sold as the even cheaper R5 3550H & I've paid extra for the R7, then I might feel like I've been duped. And regarding this machine beating out the Medion with its i5-8300H & 1060, you may well be right but it's £268 CHEAPER & in my opinion the more cost-effective purchase!! And TBH, in terms of AC Odyssey (my fave game at the mo) I'm not sure that the difference is going to be that massive. 37 FPS is very weak or are you going to disagree with that too?
Ought to be upgradeable but not sure if it's 4+4 or 8+0.
https://www.notebookcheck.net/No-price-cuts-for-the-RTX-20-series-as-NVIDIA-kills-off-all-but-the-RTX-2060-Super-prices-and-release-dates-confirmed.426675.0.html Aparently no price drops
It doesn't make any sense what you just said. if 2060 wont change it's price and 2060SUPER will be 400ish, there is no point or reason to buy the super card because few more quids gives you 2070 which will also receive price reduction after 2070Super release. Reconsider again those pricing levels.
I wouldn't count on it. The latest leaks suggest that the price for the 2060 Super will be $430, and it's pretty much a 1:1 between dollar and pound values these days once you account for VAT. Still plenty of room for the standard 2060s to stay around the £300-350 mark if the Super version is £400 and up.
Super "launch" is just to take attention away from navi. There's a difference between a paper launch and solid availability Ben. Go back to ruining Batman for everyone instead. (mad)
You said Release dates, these are Launch dates. I like the way you burnt yourself with your own link just to prove yourself wrong sweetie
This is going for 460 elsewhere
Vega56 at current 200 price is the best bang for your buck. It will handle ultra wide 1440p well with a few settings turned down here and there.
An rtx2080 will serve you well. Gigabyte have great warranties and after sales service if you have any issues. BUT would be best to wait a little as new products are coming very soon.
I swear buying GPUs in the UK atm is the hardest thing right now (skeptical) trying to upgrade for ultrawide 1440p but I just don’t know what to go for especially with the prices, anyone got any advice?
XD I'd wait too but don't expect too much.
They jacked the price up £25 that just sucks!
Price has gone up now so no more value.
This or ASUS deal?
£ 269.98 on their website ...
I was holding out for a sapphire Vega 56 deal but this is tempting (even if I'm not interested in a single one of those games).
How does it perform in terms of gameplay? I'll probably be playing far cry 5 , assassins creed games , gta v etc . Any throttling/heat issues? Also, how is the screen quality (backlight bleed)? Thanks
Yeah think i saw you post it somewhere you got lucky with that a 1 off most likely for a while i think haha. You still got the 2 year warranty?
...bought this in Gunmetal finish brand new from eBay last week for mere £809, stunning machine, if you ask me (highfive)
Mining is hardly profitable after electric costs etc are factored in. Only mega farms generate enough.
Probably more a case of manufacturers now being able to cope with demand which they couldn't when the mining trend exploded. Also I think the mining trend has taken a dip due to fact that buddy entrepreneurs are not earning the big bucks they thought they could.
graphics cards not powerfull enough for mining anymore ?
With lots of graphic card (sort of) deals starting to appear hopefully the worm has finally turned and prices will start becoming more realistic as there were before the mining craze took off.
Yea I'm looking to upgrade my 290 and it's such pain.. so think I'll go with a 1070
This hasn't been the case for a while now. The pad on the VRMs didn't make complete contact on some of the earlier cards. The newer cards are all sorted and if you end up with one of the earlier models, it's really only a 5 min fix. In my opinion, if you're going for the Vega, it's this or the Sapphire. I don't want to go arguing AMD/Nvidia but If you're comparing them, they are around the 1080/2070, but the three free AAA games makes them very good value for money... if those particular games are your thing. You pay your money, take your choice.
Thermals fixed or not, this really isn’t worth another £100 or so over the Vega 56.
It's normally £10 delivery
It's currently just under £400 at Overclockers but I'm not sure about OC's delivery rates. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/asus-radeon-rx-vega-64-rog-strix-oc-8gb-hbm2-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-41v-as.html
What you recommended then?
It is comparable in the sense it's a 1070 laptop - which was my point. I guess you've got to ask yourself whether the extra bump in processor speed and a larger, higher refres screen is worth the extra £300... I wouldn't say so personally, others might disagree. It's good to have a choice, no?
Cheaper but lower specs .... That's not comparable. Of course lower specs is cheaper
There's a much cheaper 1070 laptop here https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-gl502vs-core-i7-7700hq-gtx-1070-16-gb-ddr4-256gb-ssd-15-1080p-free-gaming-bundle-worth-150-1199-save-on-laptops-3116461 The processor is 7th gen i7, but it will still rip through any game on ultra setting at 1080p
Has anyone ordered this?
I saw a half decent 1060 deal (I don't know what the mobile version is like). Still on the 'should be this price anyway' side. (I can't remember which one, there have been so many posted)
RE: Missing numpad. It's a TKL (tenkeyless) layout, often favoured by gamers. It's a gaming keyboard, so...
I think the numpad can be purchased separately for another £40, and clips on to the rest of the keyboard. Buying the kb and numpad separately costs less than the price of the package with both included :) Also if you're a heavy numpad user this kb is not recommended anyway. According to all reviews I've read, the numpad is a bit wobbly when it attached to the kb.
Ok. Never said they didn’t. Just disappointing for me that it doesn’t include a numpad
Can't decide on this or the Corsair K65 LUX. Got the K70 already and love it but want a TKL as never use the numpad. Is there a way to get free delivery on Overclockers?
You don't understand sarcasm or what?
Yes, says so it the title :/
Looks good this, check out the following link ROG PHONE
Because it's several hundred pounds cheaper than the 8th gen version which you will never get back by lower energy consumption which is irrelevant anyway as there are not really any thermal benefits because Intel is using the same architecture as 7th gen and just increased the core count which is nice but not if the premium for that is huge.
it is not about what it can cannot do but more about why would i buy 7-gen cpu if I can get 8-gen cpu witch would mean more performance, less power comsuption and cooler temp . . .
Tell me the name of a game that this machine cannot play at highest graphic settings?
it is lovely laptop and quality cooling solution but Intel Core i7-7700HQ kills it, it is good cpu but in 2018 it has to be 8th gen CPU . . .
not a bad deal if you get a six-digit salary and even then i would be sceptical..
Good space heater for the winter I suppose, be sure to warn your local power station before turning your PC on though, they need to increase the power output in preparation.
1080 tbh or more sense is wait till the spring and Navi. AMD are also bring out an RX590 which should be a boosted RX580 to compete with the RTX2060. The advantage AMD has is Freesync, but otherwise the prices need to change a lot more. I would wait.
no one in the right mind would buy this over a 1080 at the current prices.. LIKE NO ONE
This should really be cheaper now that GPU prices are slowly coming down. The power our price looks better.
Voted hot, just in time for winter too
