ROG ZEPHYRUS Defining Ultra-Slim Gaming: World’s Slimmest Gaming Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG’s persistent dedication to innovation. Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops, it has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design, an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, a 144Hz IPS panel with an ultra-fast 3ms response time, and Windows 10. ROG slimmed the body to a mere 16.9-17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling and unbeatable acoustic efficiency thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System. The sleek chassis also includes an RGB keyboard that will feel familiar to gamers who typically play on desktop PCs.

Design: Slim and Sleek
ROG Zephyrus takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and 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 (AAS): Play It Cool
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.

• 20% Increased Air Flow Space.
• 32% Increased System Air Flow.
• 20% Reduced System Temperature.
• No Throttling - System Stability.

Active Aerodynamic System (AAS): Breathe Deeply
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. The patented trapezoid-cut lets air flow freely from the rear exhaust vents, improving thermal efficiency compared to standard laptop lids. 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.

AeroAccelerator (AA) with 12v Fans
ROG AAS incorporates unique AeroAccelerator (AA) technology that increases the speed and efficiency of airflow through the laptop. It starts with the carefully shaped aluminium alloy shroud around the intake, which has curved edges and raised guides that channel more cool air into the fan. The fan blades are made of a special liquid crystal polymer (LCP) that lets us reduce the thickness by 33% compared to traditional designs. We can add more blades as a result, improving airflow through the fan by 26%. The 12V fans in ROG Zephyrus are more powerful than the 5V fans usually found in laptops; they spin 17% faster, and increase air pressure by up to 27%.

Anti-Dust Cooling
Dust buildup on heatsink fins can compromise cooling performance over time, but ROG Zephyrus has an Anti-Dust Cooling system with a patented centrifugal fan module and two exhaust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the center. Dust and other particles that get sucked into the fan module are blown along the walls and eventually out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prolongs the system’s lifespan and increases stability. Cool air passes over heatsink fins just 0.1mm thick — half the thickness of typical fins. The thinner profile reduces air resistance while letting us squeeze in more fins to increase the surface area for better heat dissipation.

Dedicated Heat Pipes
With a special heat pipe dedicated to the power board, and more for the GPU and CPU, Zephyrus effectively channels heat to the thermal fins, where it’s quickly dissipated and exhausted outside the chassis.

Fan OverBoost
While the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures, you can select different modes to suit the situation at hand. OverBoost is the most aggressive setting, with the fastest fan speed to fully exploit the potential of ROG Zephyrus. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, which is ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet. A single press of the function key (F5) allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan speeds to control noise levels and cooling performance.

Keyboard: Aura Sync for Ultimate Personalization
Aura Sync technology gives you the freedom to customize and synchronize lighting effects with compatible gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your entire setup a consistent look and feel. With a full spectrum of colours to choose from, as well as six different lighting modes that can be accessed via the Aura control panel, Aura Sync technology lets you express your persona, or the feel of the game you’re currently playing. 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 customize 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. 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.

Keyboard Lighting Effects:
• Static.
• Breathing.
• Strobing.
• Colour Cycle.
• Music.
• Smart.

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.
