ROG HURACAN (G21)
Just one look is all it takes for you to realize that ROG Huracan is unlike any other gaming desktop. Its aggressively-styled chassis has an asymmetric design, and there’s a folding magnetic side cover that, when opened, improves airflow into the system and enables a CPU and GPU performance boost. The extra airflow provides the cooling needed to unleash the full fury of its 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics for extraordinary gaming experiences — so you can play the latest games at their most extreme settings.
A BATTLE-HARDENED CYBER-WARRIOR
Huracan is a high-performance, compact 13-liter gaming desktop with cyber-warrior and cyber-punk design elements. It has an aggressive, angular chassis with sharp creases that reflect a battle scars.

UPGRADES MADE EASY
To ensure you’re ready for future battles, both side panels slide open to reveal the internal components, giving you easy access when it’s time to upgrade to the latest hardware. Upgrade to more powerful graphics cards, larger capacity storage drives, or simply add more RAM so your gaming rig is always up to date. There’s even a hot-swap 2.5-inch SSD bay that can be taken out and replaced in seconds.
PLAY IT COOL
Huracan features air intakes at the front, top and underside of the chassis. Opening the cover adds to that, allowing the maximum amount of cooling air into the chassis.
