ASUS on Monday showcased a new lineup of professional and gaming displays at CES 2020, including the ultra-portable ZenScreen MB16ACE and all-around solid TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A.

The new ZenScreen MB16ACE is a portable 15.6-inch Full HD display that effectively doubles available workspace when using the monitor in conjunction with a typical 1080p laptop – meant for business travellers.

It weighs 0.7kg (1.56 lbs) and comes in at just 8mm thick. It also comes with a new and improved smart case.

It features an anti-glare IPS panel that is TUV Rheinland-certified for flicker-free operation at any brightness level.

Meanwhile, the TUF Gaming VG27AQL1A aims at demanding gamers with an all-around combo of fresh styling, a high 165Hz refresh rate and incredibly low response time (1ms MPRT), IPS display for vivid colors and wide viewing angles, a GPU-friendly 2560×1440 resolution, and the unique ELMB (Extreme Low Motion Blur) Sync technology from ASUS.

Reiterating its commitment to safeguard the iPhone user’s data at any cost, Apple has defended its stance on hardware encryption at the ‘CES 2020′ trade show here, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) asked the Cupertino-based giant to unlock two iPhones.

Participating in a privacy-focused session, Jane Horvath, Apple’s Senior Director of Global Privacy, lauded Apple’s initiatives to protect consumers’ data.

“Building back doors into encryption is not the way we are going to solve those issues,” she said.

On Monday, the FBI sent a letter to Apple asking for help in the extraction of data from two iPhones, believed to have been used by a suspect in killing three people in a shooting in Florida in December last year.

According to a CNBC report on Wednesday, Horvath took the company line, defending Apple’s implementation of strong hardware encryption.

Apple also denied FBI access to an iPhone belonging to the shooter in San Bernardino terror attack in 2016. The FBI had to pay professional hackers to break into the device.

“Our phones are relatively small and they get lost and stolen. If we’re going to be able to rely on our health data and finance data on our devices, we need to make sure that if you misplace that device, you’re not losing your sensitive data”, Horvath was quoted as saying.
