<pre><pre>Asus announces two portable monitors: one for 240Hz gaming, one for touch

Asus was one of the first companies to launch portable USB-C monitors, and this year Computex is publishing two unique new designs.


The first is the ZenScreen Touch (pictured above), a 15.6-inch 1080p touchscreen designed to be connected to smartphones or laptops. The most important use case during an event prior to Computex Taipei this week was for productivity-oriented smartphone apps with complex user interfaces that can be used more easily on a larger canvas.

The ZenScreen Touch has a 7,800mAh battery, comes with a protective cover that can be folded to a stand, and also has the characteristic Asus hole in the corner that allows you to cram the screen with a pencil.

The ROG Strix XG17 is another portable 1080p monitor, but the focus cannot be different: it is all about gaming. It is the first portable 240Hz gaming monitor in the world, Asus proudly declares, and it has a 17.3-inch IPS panel that supports variable refresh rate.

This monitor also has two USB-C ports, Micro HDMI and a battery of 7,800 mAh, which Asus says should be good at 240 Hz for 3 hours. However, it will last longer with lower refresh rates, for which you probably want to set it if you use it with a switch like in this photo & # 39; s. The more demanding options are aimed at competing players of games such as League of Legends or CS: GO, which can be performed on super-high frames on laptops that may not have a built-in high refresh rate installed.

Not a single word about prices for one of these models, but the ZenScreen Touch should be out next month.
