I assume that Asus waited a long time before dropping “the bomb” at CES, as it jsut announced the newest ultra-slim Zephyrus G14 and G15 laptop to go with the ROG Strix GA15/GT15 and the ROG Strix Ga35/GT35 desktops.
Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Gaming Laptop
Let’s start with the new gaming laptops, which you can guess from the name, is ultra-slim. That means less weight to carry around - it weights just 1.6kg or 3.52 pounds. All of this in a small chassis of 17.9mm or 0.70 inches. At the moment, they’re only available with the AMD Ryzen 4800U 8-core/16 thread processors.
Now, don’t get fooled by the small design, this bad boy can run almost any game at 60 fps with no problems at all. And, you don't need to buy an external GPU like that new Lenovo Y740S. You can also find on this laptop the popular AniMe Matrix, as Asus team named, aaprogrammable Led dot which is in the lid....
At a mere 14.95~15.75mm thin, Zephyrus S is 12% slimmer than the original Zephyrus (GX501). It’s equipped with the latest Intel® Core™ i7-8750H CPU and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics, making it ideal for work or play. Super-narrow bezels squeeze a 15.6-inch display, with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, into a 14.2-inch chassis. The all-metal chassis is strong enough to meet military-grade durability standards without compromising on design, with sleek lines and a premium finish. An advanced cooling system ensures optimal performance of all components, incorporating the proprietary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) — a design and engineering hallmark of the Zephyrus series.
ALL-METAL CHASSIS COMBINES DESIGN WITH FUNCTION
One of the biggest challenges with creating such a thin laptop is making sure that the chassis strikes the best balance between strength and weight: Zephyrus S uses a mix of aluminum and magnesium alloys in its construction to achieve this balance. Each lid is meticulously...
Desktop replacement laptops put incredible power in a portable package that you can take anywhere. They also make concessions to conform to a clamshell form factor that’s unnecessarily rigid for deployment on a desk. The legacy blueprint not only limits cooling, but also and locks you into a fixed position that’s really only required for use on a lap. That’s the last place you’ll find most desktop replacements, so we reimagined the form factor to raise your game. Instead of sitting flat, the ROG Mothership stands tall to draw more air into its advanced cooling system. Its keyboard detaches and folds to fit different scenarios, giving you the freedom to find the perfect position, and the innovative design leaves enough room to put all the speakers right below the screen.
The exquisitely machined aluminum chassis frames an ultra-fast 144Hz/3ms G-Sync display powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ graphics and Intel® Core™ i9 processor. Better cooling allows us to push the CPU and GPU beyond stock speeds and still sustain...
This is mobile gaming at its finest!
While the just introduced ROG Mothership represents the future, the ROG G703 takes the present into the next generation. It is powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with an optional factory-overclocked Intel Core i9-8950HK processor for speeds of up to 4.8GHz. Sticking to a traditional 17” laptop form factor requires beefier cooling and a thicker chassis to achieve the same performance as its deep-breathing sibling. The larger heatsinks and fans are so effective that the G703 can keep up despite having much less room to breathe.
ROG G703 features an IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology, allowing for super smooth gameplay even on Ultra graphics settings. G703 also features HyperDrive Extreme storage, which uses exclusive technology to combine three NVMe™ PCI Express® (PCIe®) SSDs in RAID 0 configuration for read speeds of up to 8700MB/s — the fastest ever on a laptop.
