What are the best games for my ASUS Laptop, tablet and smartphone

The gaming world is vast with too many game titles to list. The key when selecting a game is to look for great games that will perform on the device you have and not on your dream machine. The best ASUS gaming laptops can play any game title. We are often asked, what are some great games that I can play on my Zenfone or on my ASUS laptop (that was purchased for school or work)?

The answer usually goes into details that you may not know about your device.

Important laptop components for gaming

It’s worth learning what the important components in your computer are and how they can affect your game play. If you plan on playing a lot of different games and you don’t have the latest ASUS gaming laptop you might run into performance issues such as: lag, low frame rates, slow load times…

Asus Gaming devices

Before shopping for a game on your laptop – let’s review some of the important parts in your laptop and how they relate to game play in order of importance to gaming:

Graphics card – arguably the most important part for games
CPU – the central processing unit (i5, i7, i9) since it handles all of your computer’s operations
RAM – we recommend at least 8 GB for gaming. While you’re looking see if your RAM is upgradable.
Storage, Motherboard, Power Supply, Cooling – these items are important and aside from storage (SSD) you are limited by the original design of your laptop.
Screen, Monitor – The screen on your laptop will be limiting as to the quality of image but shouldn’t be too critical to gaming. If it becomes critical to you, you can always purchase an external ASUS monitor

The Asus Accessories team has listed the most important parts below explain in more detail how they will impact the performance during game play.

Graphics Card

Your graphics card is arguably the most important component of a gaming computer. Everything that is displayed on your computer screen comes directly from your dedicated graphics card or integrated graphics processor.

Graphics card for gaming

The graphic card or processor renders the image on your screen as directed by the CPU. A dedicated Graphics Card will handle some of the processing of the image such as image rotation/fine textures/anti-aliasing, freeing your CPU to more easily handle other processing activities needed during game play.

The dedicated graphics card will also have its own RAM where the integrated graphics card will use the system RAM. Ok enough tech talk…

DEDICATED GRAPHICS CARD is better than INTEGRATED GRAPHICS

CPU

The computer’s processor or CPU ( as important as your graphics card) runs the game, loads maps and backgrounds, processes the action , and takes the input instructions from your mouse and keyboard. The CPU calculates all of these things and transfers them to the graphics card so that it may display (render) them on your screen.

CPU for gaming

Every new generation of CPU is more powerful than the last. So for Intel i9 > i7 >i5

Memory (RAM)

RAM (Random Access Memory) is your system’s short-term data storage; it stores the information your computer is actively using so that it can be accessed quickly. Memory allows you to switch quickly between tasks, remembering where you are in one task when you switch to another task. As a rule, the more memory you have, the better.

RAM for gaming

Accessing information in RAM is a lot faster for the CPU than if it had to access the storage memory (Hard drive/SSD). More RAM is BETTER – We recommend at least 8 MB

Storage, Motherboard, Power Supply, Cooling

Storage
Storage memory is available as a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or as a Solid State Drive(SSD). This is long term storage where you keep your programs, documents, media files, etc. Your game library will be kept here.

SSD for gaming

Since, the storage drive is typically the slowest thing in the chain of events that make a game run you would like to have the fastest disk drive available or use an SSD. The CPU will need to access this storage memory for information it needs to run the game.
SSD is BETTER than HDD

Motherboard
The Motherboard is the main printed circuit board (PCB) that allows, communication between many of the crucial electronic components of a system, such as the CPU, RAM, sound cards, video cards, network cards, hard drives, and it also provides connectors for other peripherals. It is the main board that your computer is built around.



ASUS is a pioneer and at the forefront of the development of Motherboards (SEE ARTICLE). Luckily, your ASUS motherboard will be the best available motherboard for that range of computers at the time of your purchase. Usually, the CPU, graphics card, RAM, and storage drives will be the limiting factor.
ASUS Motherboards are the best. Serious gamers will eventually want to overclock…just because.

Power Supply
Your ASUS computer hardware needs a reliable power supply. If your power supply doesn’t keep up with that demand you may experience sluggish performance of affected parts right up to catastrophic shut down….blue-screening!! Please make sure that the capacity of your power supply is sufficient for your computer.

Only use the appropriate ASUS power supply for your device.
If you need a replacement, help finding it or have other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: contact@asus-accessories.com

Cooling – Fans and ventilation
Heat is the most common enemy of your computer hardware. For Gaming it is crucial that your components do not run too hot, they can start to automatically wind back their speed in an effort to prevent them from overheating.

Cooling fans for gaming

Make sure you have enough ventilation and fans to keep your case cool.

Display Monitor
Of course, your monitor is important. The main factor which impacts gaming is the resolution of your screen or monitor (ex. 1920x1080 pixels).

Asus monitor for gaming

Your graphics card may not be able to process quickly enough at the top end resolution making for a very poor gaming experience. Luckily you can adjust the resolution.

Make sure your graphics card performance matches your display. The higher the resolution the more demands on your system.

Important components for gaming on my smartphone or tablet (android)

As will notice the components are similar to the laptop components just in a different order. Smartphones do not have a truly dedicated graphics card; if you have a high end phone you will have a high end CPU and GPU.

Display – resolution, pixels per inch, and panel type.
CPU – chipsets, cores, performance
RAM – the more the better
GPU – is integrated

Display - what are the different types?

There are three things you need to know about your Display: resolution, panel type and refresh rate.

Resolution
Quad High Definition (QHD) = 2560x1440 pixels = 1440p = 2K
Television went straight to 4K so this may not be familiar to you.
Ultra-High Definition (UHD) = 3840x2160 pixels = 2160p = 4K

Pixels per Inch (PPI) is a number that is directly calculated from the size and resolution of a display. As a rule, a smaller sized display will have a higher PPI than a larger sized display at the same resolution. This is because the smaller the screen, the more pixels have to be packed into an surface area.

The higher the resolution the better.
What display type your phone or tablet uses can have a big effect on color reproduction and battery consumption.

Panel Type
The two principle types of screens:

IPS -In-Plane Switching Liquid Crystal Displays
AMOLED / OLED -Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode/Organic Light-Emitting Diode

AMOLED/OLED allow for per-pixel lighting. Each LED emits its own light and doesn’t require a backlight. These are the preferred types of screens. They are however more expensive to produce and have not yet completely replaced the IPS. These displays also use less energy since the individual pixel can be turned off.
AMOLED / OLED is better than IPS

Refresh rate
The refresh rate is a measure for the number of times a screens redraws an image. It is measured in Hertz (Hz). In simple terms, a higher refresh rate means lesser motion blur and considerably clearer image quality. Most smartphones today are equipped with 60Hz screens, irrespective of the price. High end smart phone refresh rates range from 90 - 120 Hz.
The higher the refresh rate the better

CPU

Most mobile chipsets use multi-core CPU’s. The most recent use Octa-core CPUs. However, the number of cores doesn’t necessarily translate to raw performance. Tablet and phone specs are typically shown with two different speed ratings (for example: 2.5GHz + 1.6 Ghz 64 bit Octa-Core)…don’t melt down it’s just a power saving concept. The newer devices use half of their cores at the same time. One set of cores runs easy tasks at lower speed to save battery life switching to higher power set when playing a game or another intensive task.
The more recent the chipset are BETTER

RAM -how much do you need?
Like for your laptop, the more RAM you have the better. Smart phones will start closing processes in the background when you start running out of RAM. This helps when you are playing a game but may not be enough to avoid issues. A mobile device's Graphics Processing Unit shares the same RAM as the rest of your phone.
AGAIN RAM More is better

GPU are integrated in cell phones
Integrated GPU - If you get a high-end CPU, you're going to get a high-end GPU.
The ASUS ROG phone uses 2.96GHz speed-binned Qualcomm® SDM845 with Adreno™ 630 GPU which is a gaming powerhouse.

These laptops were purchased for work or school. They are extremely convenient, sleek light and can do everything you need but may struggle with some games. We suggest you try the games below and mix a little fun into your daily grind.

ASUS VivoBook S15 has discrete NVIDIA graphics and ergolift to improve cooling. This gorgeous 1.8 kg, 18mm thick beautifully designed laptop with its innovative Screenpad will accomplish all of the tasks you want. It is not designed for gaming but like they say…all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

In this list of our favorites, we’ve tried to blend a mixture of modern titles and a handful of older classics. If you’ve been gaming for a number of years, we strongly suggest Googling “best games of X,” to remind yourself what hidden gems you might have missed the first time around. A game that required a midrange PC to play in 2011 likely runs just fine on an integrated GPU today.

Battlefield 3

This is a very well-known first person shooter game and is an older version (AAA game in 2011) of a very well established franchise.

Battlefield 3

Set during the fictional “War of 2014” over a nine month period. The story is centered in the Persian gulf region, other locations include Paris and New York. You should be able to play this tittle for free.

It uses a modern WoW engine, but Blizzard re-used original WoW’s textures and assets. The result is a game that runs just fine on Intel integrated graphics.

Arkham City and Arkham Asylum

Batman has a great bag of tricks and you can even play as Catwoman with distinct moves and attributes.
