    Armed with ROG Gaming Center
    * Software and compatibility may vary by product model.
    ROG GameFirst V technology maximizes throughput for your game! It prioritizes network packets for increased bandwidth for online gaming and streaming. Auto mode prioritizes all of your applications; while Manual mode lets you categorize programs and prioritize them accordingly. In addition, ROG First ensures ROG routers and ASUS RT-series routers prioritize packets according to the GameFirst V settings in your ROG laptop.
    ROG GameVisual software provides six preset modes for different game genres and multimedia. ROG software engineers have fine-tuned each setting to deliver visual excellence that perfectly complements the game genre. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhances visibility in dark environments — so you’ll see details denied to your enemies, for a clearer shot with every pull of the trigger!
    Sonic Studio III is a useful suite of tools to support all of your in-game audio needs. A control panel gives you access to five different audio modes, and even lets you manually adjust settings. This software suite also provides noise cancellation, voice-volume stabilization, and echo cancellation during recording.
    The Sonic Radar III audio engine processes sounds more accurately than ever, so you’re always aware of what’s going on around you. Use the on-screen arrow to hone your enemy-pinpointing skills, and enjoy visualized audio detail that eliminates the need to crank up the volume — the perfect tool for practice rounds and tuning untrained ears.
    With Aura Core, you’re free to customize your keyboard’s RGB lighting to suit your gaming style, with an easy-to-use control panel offering easy command over a spectrum of brilliant colors and seven preset lighting modes. You can activate AURA SYNC via Aura Core as well.
    Access fan settings using Fan Overboost to control noise levels and power consumption — choose between the Fan Overboost mode for intense gaming sessions, Silent mode for less demanding tasks, or a balanced mode for moderate noise and fan performance.
    A lifetime subscription to XSplit Gamecaster Standard allows you to live stream and broadcast directly to Internet streaming platforms, or make recordings for easy online sharing.
    Keep ROG Gaming Center close at hand with the Android or iOS app on your smartphone or tablet, so you can access it without interrupting your game. What’s more, they’re free to download from Google Play and the App Store!
