ASUS launches new gaming laptops at CES 2022, including ROG Zephyrus, ROG Strix and TUF series, not only 12th generation Intel Core CPUs, AMD Ryzen 6000 series CPUs, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti / RTX 3070 Ti GPU / AMD Radeon RX 6000S series GPU, more fully imported MUX Switch independent display direct connection switch, improve performance.
In the past, the signal of the discrete GPU was usually bypassed by the internal display, so that in a light-load environment that does not require the operation of the discrete GPU, only the internal display signal was used, which also saved power.
With the MUX Switch, you can use only the internal display even in a light-load environment, but games or programs that require independent GPU resources will automatically output GPU video directly to the display, without bypassing the internal display, which can significantly improve performance.
Let’s see what good things ASUS has in the gaming laptop market in 2022.
