Asus ROG GT51CA Comes Running With An Intel i5-6600K or i7-6700K  

The gaming machine can either be configured to run an Intel i5-6600K (overclocked to 4.3GHz) or i7-6700K (overclocked to 4.6GHz). Windows 10 Home is the OS that will come pre-installed and you can only guess on which storage the installation will be present in:

  • 2 PCIe Gen3 x4 (RAID 0) – 512GB x 2
  • 256GB M.2 SATA SSD
  • 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD
  • Up to 3TB of hard disk space

As for graphical performance, consumers can choose to configure either of the following GPUs inside the system:

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB GDDR5 (SLI)
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4GB GDDR5
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5

Overtime, when you feel like upgrading the GPU configuration, you will have tons of flexibility of doing so thanks to the availability of 3 PCIe x 16 slots. You can also place an add-on card inside the PCIe x1 slot (though you can remove a sound card from the equation because from the audio side of things, you have an ESS Hi-Fi-grade audio). Additionally, you can also choose to incorporate 64GB of DDR4 RAM with a frequency of 2,133MHz. According to the details posted on the website, the RAM will be overclocked to 2,800MHz. Side by side, if 64GB of RAM sounds like overkill, you can choose for the 16GB RAM option.

At the front side of the chassis, you have the following I/O options:
