The City of Joy now has a new reason to rejoice! ASUS has announced the opening of India’s first-ever exclusive ‘Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) store in Kolkata with its partner ‘Nimbus Computer Pvt. Ltd’. With an area of about 50 square meters, the gamers can visit the store from every Monday to Saturday between 11.00 to 20.00pm to experience the latest devices, game titles and accessories. The store is equipped with a ‘Battle Ground’ where a total of 6 gamers can compete against each other and experience LAN gaming at its best. The store is also furnished with a product demo zone and experience centre where the users can test the new hardware.
Asus ROG has also organized its first ever ‘Counter Strike: Global Offensive’ India gaming tournament in Kolkata from July 02 to July 03 at its new store. The tournament has a prize pool of INR 1, 40,000/- for Kolkata.
Elaborating further on the launch of ASUS ROG store in Kolkata, Peter Chang, Regional Head – South Asia & Country Manager – System Business Group – ASUS India, said, “Most of the gamers today are not able to try and test the latest hardware and software before they buy it. With this store, our objective is to create an experiential zone where gamers come and try out the latest gaming technology and game titles first hand without having them to buy these. This ROG Store with our partner ‘Nimbus Computer’ is not just a place to sell various gaming products, but more than that, we aim at making this a prominent gaming circuit in the city where the gamers meet, exchange information as well as enhance their gaming skills.”
The ‘Battle Ground’ in the store showcases the latest Asus ROG GL552VW, a mainstream gaming laptop well-equipped with Quad core 6th Gen Intel core i7 (Skylake) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 series graphics.
The company also showcased its mainstream and affordable desktop – ASUS ROG G11 which is designed for casual gamers who want a high performance gaming platform that doesn’t break the bank. Inside, this cutting-edge chassis houses a 6th-generation Intel Core processor, Windows 10 Home, and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics card for exceptional processing power and visual prowess. It supports a PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD, DDR4 memory, and USB 3.1 for high speed data access.
