Default AnandTech Looks Back at 10 Years of ROG

For hardcore PC enthusiasts, AnandTech needs no introduction. AnandTech has had a direct line of communication with ROG since the beginning. Let's take a look back at how ROG and AnandTech have evolved and what lies ahead. Don't miss the Q&A as AnandTech readers had the opportunity to have their say!

"Earlier this year before CES 2016, we approached ASUS with an idea: as the Republic of Gamers brand is now in its 10th year of operation, we wanted to get together and discuss the feeling and utility of ROG a decade on, record it, have a question and answer session from our readers, and publish the video. The Republic of Gamers brand from ASUS has been difficult to ignore, both from an engineering perspective when it comes to motherboards and graphics cards, but also the origin story, integration with users, and the expansion out to many different product lines. I felt it was important to hear from the source, and see what makes the mind tick of some of the integral cogs behind the ROG experience."*- Ian Cutress, AnandTech Motherboard Senior Editor*
