Asus launches Windows 8 devices and cloud-computing solution

Asus opened its pre-Computex press conference with a unified cloud-computing solution, however it was the slew of Windows 8 devices--ranging from a twist on the AIO form factor to a convertible notebook--that drew the most applause from the media.

Asus Open Cloud Computing, or AOCC all things considered, was described as a "total solution for the ubiquitous cloud computing era". From what little we can tell while the presentation, it looks like the company is trying to integrate some of its existing cloud solutions, just as Asus WebStorage, into a more cohesive product.

The two screens work independently

Asus told us that the two screens work independently and that both can be used for different applications together. This opens up possibilities just as having someone play a Metro-style app during another person types away at the keyboard end. Anyway you look at it, Windows 8 is required for this to work.

The Taichi will come with both 11.6- and 13.3-inch screen sizes and Asus claims that it will be as light as its Zenbook Ultrabooks. Powering this device will be the latest Intel Core-i processors, along with SSD storage and Asus' SonicMaster audio research.

Number of Transformer-like tablets with keyboard docks

Asus as well launched a number of Transformer-like tablets with keyboard docks. They as well support Asus SonicMaster audio and have NFC sensors onboard. The difference between these two tablets lies in the version of Windows 8 installed. The Asus Tablet 810 runs on the x86 version of Windows 8 during Tablet 600 uses the ARM-compatible Windows RT.

The 11.6-inch 810 uses an Intel Atom processor with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The screen resolution has a 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution and the display is said to use Super IPS+ innovation, making it more readable in the open air. It as well supports a Wacom digitizer stylus.

The smaller

The smaller, 10.1-inch Tablet 600 features a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chip with 2GB of RAM. There's only 32GB of storage, however the screen resolution and research is identical to the 810.

Asus as well launched a couple of monitors, the Designo MX279H and the MX239H. Both feature sharp, matte IPS panels with a sleek design and up to 178-degree viewing angles. Audio is as well integrated and predictably, uses Asus' SonicMaster research. We as well saw a new Asus router, the RT-AC66U, which supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi standards and claims to offer Wi-Fi speeds of up to 1.75Gbps.

The company has

The company has but to reveal the price and availability of these products, even though as the majority of them are Windows 8 devices, you should expect them later this year when Microsoft's OS hits the market.
