- ASUS announces two new gaming desktop chassis, split into two further model lines for AMD and Intel processors.
- The GA15 and GT15 are specifically designed for esports and gamers who simply want all the basics in place for smooth gaming.

ASUS announced not one, not two, nor three, but four new gaming desktop PCs. The GA15 and GA35 are powered by AMD Ryzen processors, while the GT15 and GT35 are identical in every way aside from motherboard and CPU, swapping out AMD for Intel counterparts.
The GA15 and GT15 are geared more towards esports and gamers who prefer stable frame rates over visual fidelity. The chassis is lightweight and comes rocking a carry handle for LAN action. You can configure these desktop PCs with up to an NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER GPU, 32GB 3,200MHz DDR4 RAM, 1TB SSD, and AMD Ryzen 7 3800X or equivilent Intel CPU.
For the GA35 and GT35, you can go all the way up to an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti to handle even the more demanding games at high settings without issue. As well as the GPU, you can equip these desktops with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X or equivilent Intel CPU, 64GB 3,200MHz DDR4 RAM, and 1TB SSD. There's even two hot-swap drive bays for good measure.
ASUS expects to start shipping the new GA15 and GA35 desktop PCs in Q2 2020 with no word on GT15 and GT35 just yet.
