Launched at Computex 2017, the Asus Blue Cave is an AC2600 dual-band Wi-Fi router that's supposed to deliver an awesome Wi-fi experience at home. Generally, high-performance routers will have 2-4 antennas, but Asus has specially designed internal antennas in Blue Cave to make it stylish and elegant. Instead, there is a hole in the middle which Asus likes to call a "central aperture" that directs the signal. The "ultrafast" speed will ensure uninterrupted video streaming of 4K UHD videos across your house, along with faster download speeds and gaming without any lag, promises Asus. The company also launched the new ZenBook Pro, featuring powerful hardware in a slim form factor, an Intel Core i7-7700HQ as well as a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
