In terms of design, the laptop sports a distinct cyberpunk aesthetic with first-of-its-kind invisible ink applied directly to its metal chassis, which appears blue and green under UV light.
ROG Flow X16
The ROG Flow X16 is a 16" convertible laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics, with support for the XG Mobile external GPUs.

Inspired by cyberpunk and the code that builds the modern virtual world, the ROG Slash lineup includes a crossbody bag, backpack, hip bag, protective laptop bag, as well as a new cobra buckle cap and bucket hat. The series is also versatile and durable, using adjustable straps, multiple compartments, and water-resistant TPU materials.
