ASUS ROG Tytan CG8890: a beast of a system

Imposing, powerful and expensive



When you're in need of a new desktop PC you can choose to assemble it on your, have someone else do it according to your specifications, or you can get a pre-assembled system. In that case you never know if the best choices were made with each component. When you assemble your own system, or have someone do it for you, ASUS is one of the standard choices for components. The manufacturer has recently started to sell complete desktop PCs, in addition to their all-in-ones, laptops and tablets. The high-end model is called the  ASUS ROG Tytan CG8890, available for around £3,650.

That's a lot of money, but ASUS did pull out the stops for this system. Its imposing look matches the impressive hardware inside. And then there is the special 'speed' button on top of the chassis. Press that, and the case literally starts moving. Sides will open up, fans will appear, blue lights turn red, and all that's missing is that trademark Transformer sound. The computer also engages a turbo mode. It's a sight to behold.
