ASUS Zephyrus Design
Slim and Sleek Design
ROG Zephyrus takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design — an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. An innovative hinge and fan module help keep the high-end GPU cool, resulting in a gaming laptop that’s portable enough to carry with you anywhere yet potent enough to compete with powerful gaming desktops.
Active Aerodynamic System Cooling
Up to 20% Cooler System Temperature
ROG Zephyrus is armed with an exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that breaks all the rules. AAS combines intelligent design with innovative technologies to give gamers what they want: an ultra-slim laptop that runs cooler and quieter without sacrificing performance. When the laptop is opened, a portion of the bottom flexes to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with our unique AeroAccelerator technology, this gap improves airflow by 32% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling. You can game for hours on end with impeccable stability and no throttling. ROG Zephyrus offers the highest level of performance in the smallest chassis.
Enhanced AAS Cooling
Three Included AF Series Fans
ROG-exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) includes several enhancements to make the cooler more effective, improving internal airflow and allowing the fan to spin slower and quieter while maintaining low temperatures. We also adjusted the shape of the intake to reduce noise levels further and make the acoustic profile less obtrusive. Zephyrus runs cool enough to avoid throttling and quiet enough to enjoy your game.
ASUS AURA RGB Keyboard
Make your Keyboard Unique
ROG Zephyrus’ keyboard is positioned at the front of the chassis to allow better cooling for the internal components and offer a more comfortable, familiar position for gamers accustomed to desktop keyboards. Aura RGB lighting lets you customise colours and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, and you can adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately to adapt to MOBA, FPS, and other games. Anti-ghosting tech ensures your commands are interpreted instantly and correctly — even if you hit up to 30 keys simultaneously. The ergonomically designed keys have 1.4mm of travel for greater comfort and accuracy when gaming and typing. With an expected lifetime of 20 million presses, the keys offer exceptional durability and reliability for heavy use.
CPU and Graphics Performance
Intel & NVIDIA Gaming Performance
ROG Zephyrus is all about bringing innovative technologies and incredible gaming performance to an ultra-slim, portable, and stylish gaming laptop. Intel® Core™ i7 Processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics let the machine go toe-to-toe with the most hardcore gaming laptops — and even high-end desktops. Break all the rules with a true game-changer.

Plug-and-play compatibility with leading VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive let you easily enjoy fully immersive VR environments. It’s time to explore a whole new world of games and experiences.
Impeccable Seamless Gaming Visuals
High Refresh Rate Combined with NVIDIA G-Sync
ROG Zephyrus’ 120Hz display lets you enjoy exceptionally smooth gaming at a true 120 frames per second. Everything feels fluid, especially fast-paced games. With wide viewing angles and 100% sRGB gamut coverage, the panel also produces outstanding colours regardless of where you're sitting. NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology synchronises the display’s refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to make gameplay silky smooth. G-SYNC minimises perceived stuttering, reduces input lag, and eliminates visual tearing all without affecting system performance. You get the smoothest, fastest, and most immersive experience across a broad range of games.
Extensive ASUS Connectivity
High Refresh Rate Combined with NVIDIA G-Sync
ROG Zephyrus is jam-packed with the latest connectivity to give you blazing-fast transfer rates and maximum compatibility. The USB Type-C™ port delivers up to 40Gbps to Thunderbolt™ devices — four times the bandwidth of USB 3.1 Gen 2 — while four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports are ready for all your existing gear. You can also run DisplayPort™ monitors over Type-C™ USB or use HDMI 2.0 to connect 4K TVs at 60Hz.
ASUS ROG Gaming Center
Control your Laptops Performance and Features
ROG Gaming Center gives you access to all the functions you need on a single dashboard — find system information, set up AURA RGB lighting, define hotkeys for faster in-game commands, adjust audio settings, or record gameplay. In addition, ROG GameFirst IV technology optimises network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming.
Incredibly Immersive Sound
Special ASUS Audio Technology
ROG Zephyrus equips a special technology to optimise audio output. In most cases when pushing the volume to the limit, speakers can break down easily because of excess heat and excursion. The technology protects speakers by setting thermal and excursion thresholds, and monitoring variations due to loading and temperature influence.

Gaming on PCs used to be restricted to desktop computers equipped with a dedicated graphics card connected to a display, much in the same way that a games console works with a TV. Recent advances in technology have enabled manufacturers to equip laptops with increasing levels of graphics power without them being too bulky or heavy.
Date Issued: 16th Aug 2016
NVIDIA refreshed its range of graphics cards recently with the introduction of a number of new models for performance desktop PCs. Four new GeForces have been released in quick succession. The Titan X, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060, all based on the new, efficient Pascal architecture, have set new levels of performance in each segment.
