Asus ROG Zephyrus S is 'world's thinnest gaming laptop'

  • Asus ROG Zephyrus S Gaming Laptop With 8th Gen Intel Core i7 Launched Specifications Features

Asus achieved all of this in a laptop that's not only thinner but smaller in width, thanks to narrower bezels than ever producing a 15.6-inch screen within a 14-inch laptop frame. Now only Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or 1070 graphics options are available here - and both are in the Max-Q design that allows for thinner laptop hardware.

The new Zephyrus keeps the 144Hz display of its predecessor while updating the platform to the hexa-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor - one the latest and most powerful available.

This is apparently down to the company's decision to integrate a custom Active Aerodynamic System cooling system into the device.

Asus has announced a brand-new successor to the first-ever Nvidia Max-Q gaming laptop, the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501.

Whether you get the base Zephyrus S model or splurge for one with a little more power, they're expected to set you back over $2,000.

The Zephyrus has always been a slim notebook, but Asus managed to shave of a few tenths of an inch, bringing the Zephyrus S dimensions to 4.6 pounds, 13.8 x 10.6 x 0.6~0.58-inches. Both models can be configured with up to two M.2 NVMe solid state drives.

As for graphics, the GS model comes with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM and the GM model has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 6GB GDDR5 VRAM. A 60-Hz 1920x1080 model will also be available.

But as good as the laptop was, there's always room for improvement as Asus has proven with its latest iteration of the award-winning laptop, the ROG Zephyrus S (GX531). Both systems support up to 24GB of DDR4-2666 memory. Other features include customizable Aura Sync RGB lighting for the keyboard and chassis, dual front-firing speakers, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. Exact pricing and availability has not been detailed. The laptop will also have USB Type-C, USB Type-A ports, and a full-sized HDMI for outputting to an external display.
