Build Of Asus Rog G20
After watching out the awesome specification of the gaming machine Asus Rog G20. The build or the form factor when I unboxed it ( Do watch unboxing video above). I was shocked to see a small form factor in dimensions. The CPU was really small and amazing at looks. It was bit like transformers like look but those edges really made me feel amazing to look at those. It was small bit triangle shape in middle. At the front triangle enclosed Cd drive below two USB and Headphone & microphone jack. That enclosure had those awesome LED’s which are customizable which I will talk in a bit. Even at the enclosure at the top there was a triangle button which was a power button which turned on when you click. Overall I was more impressed with build quality. Asus really proved why they are the one well known computer brand around the globe with Asus Rog G20. As the design was really made and designed as gamer in minds and Which I think will not disappoint any gamer.
Features and Performance of Asus Rog G20
Asus ROG after amazing Looks was important things were the features of gaming machine. Its a well optimized gaming machine. When I booted the machine for the first time I transferred battlefield 4 right from main desktop over LAN which was already installed in my system. It was direct able to run without asking for any drivers or framework files. That really impressed me as gamer sometimes have to deal with lots of installation issues.
Asus rog G20 comes with Two-Stages Eco Energy Mode which dropped down the energy usage 28-30 watts on normal usage. At idle state its about 19-20 watts which is really amazing power efficient. You can get it done with Asus Command menu Inside Power Option.
One more and more important feature which I did mention in Build it was about the lights on the CPU. Those lights can be customized and which completely changed the look of the CPU. See the screenshot below how you can customize the lights.
Yes the hexagonal tools can light any colour you want. It has about 16 Million colours and you can choose between A1(Front Right), A2 (Front Left) , A3( Right Bottom), A4(Left Bottom). You can keep different colour for each one. I kept orange at A1 as shown above then the CPU was like as shown below

This was really impressive and unique feature which really made a must buy for the cost. Well one more thing which was installed in the CPU was the Asus GameFirst II
Which showed the complete statistics for the everything program and it shows well graphs too which was impressive.
Talking about the performance of the Asus Rog G20 As it Did come with Nvidia GTX 745 which is an amazing graphics card. In Our test the PCMark did Scored 3,520 points which is really great and which is one the best I have seen. I tried a Video encoding at HandBrake which was completed in 1 min and 25 seconds The same video on my desktop took almost 2 minutes. Working on Photoshop was also good and impressive fast enough. Strong point was Gaming and In battlefield 4 I got upto 40 Fps roughly. And other Games Ran smooth I didn’t calculated the FPS tho I forgot with deep Gaming.
Verdict of Asus ROG G20
Asus ROG G20 is really an impressive machine right at performance too. The only badpoint I would say its really tuff to upgrade the machine as taking the side cover was also tuff and installing extra hardware for future is tuff. I am really impressed with this Asus ROG G20 and I think Asus should make more of it to redefine the PC market Again. The Asus ROG G20 is small form factor gaming PC build for enthusiasts in minds and It may never disappoints with performance.
