Gaming and streaming go hand in hand. Players need to be able to hop in-game and share their experiences quickly and efficiently, and their extra-curricular activities often aren’t limited to streaming. We’re focused on creating attainable gaming machines with the power and flexibility to do more, from streaming to content creation to heavy multitasking. The new Strix GL10DH gaming desktop uses the latest Ryzen CPUs to bring a new level of performance and versatility to affordable gaming desktops.
Matisse Expands Possibilities For Gaming Desktops
Equipped with up to a Ryzen 7 3800X CPU with eight cores and 16 threads, the Strix GL10DH packs heavy-duty horsepower. The 3rd Gen Ryzen processor otherwise known as Matisse is based on an updated Zen 2 microarchitecture that boasts up to 15% higher performance per clock than the previous generation, plus a larger cache and higher clocks. These improvements accelerate both gaming and more serious workloads, which made us eager to be the first to deploy the new processors in a gaming desktop.
The Strix GL10DH flexes its gaming prowess with a range of ASUS graphics cards that includes the Turbo GeForce RTX™ 2070, or options from the Phoenix family featuring GPUs up to the GeForce® RTX 2060. NVIDIA’s new Turing GPU architecture uses a mix of CUDA, RT, and Tensor cores dedicated to programmable shading, real-time ray tracing, and artificial intelligence to produce incredible visual effects. They enable advanced lighting, lifelike reflections, and realistic shadows that make in-game experiences more immersive. These capable cores can also accelerate a range of computationally intensive tasks from 3D modeling to deep learning.
The graphics cards slot neatly into a reliable ASUS Prime B450M-K motherboard that offers a solid foundation with flexible connectivity for a wide range of components. If you’re interested in upgrading, the board is backed by thousands of hours of validation testing to ensure compatibility and stability with popular devices. Out of the box, the GL10DH is configured with up to an M.2-based NVMe SSD with 512GB of super-fast storage that accelerates load times for demanding games and apps. The SSD is paired with up to 1TB of mechanical storage for the rest of your library, along with up to 32GB of system memory for smooth multitasking.
The Strix GL10DH puts performance and potential into a streamlined case with Aura Sync accents. Choose between a vented side panel that increases airflow into the main chamber or an expanse of clear acrylic that provides an unobstructed view of the illuminated internals. The dual-chamber chassis groups the CPU, GPU, and motherboard in the main housing, while the storage bays and power supply sit in a separate cooling zone below. Everything squeezes into just 27 liters to save space wherever you play.
