Product Overview ROG ZEPHYRUS M: Elevated Performance. Uncompromised Mobility

ROG Zephyrus M with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors: Designed for What's Coming Next
ROG Zephyrus M picks up where its predecessor, ROG Zephyrus, left off — delivering mighty performance in a minute package. It’s powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics, and features an IPS-level display with a superfast 144Hz refresh rate, lightning-quick 3ms response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology. The revolutionary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) ensures Zephyrus M runs cool and quiet even at high processor loads. ROG-exclusive software lets you switch between integrated and discrete GPU modes — the Optimus power-saving mode gives you impressive battery life, while the G-SYNC mode lets you experience its graphics prowess in all its glory!

Design: Mighty. Mobile. Modern
A brushed aluminium finish with a Black Titanium and Plasma Copper colour scheme give Zephyrus M a modern and sophisticated look that sets it apart from other gaming laptops. ROG engineers found the sweet spot for maximum cooling performance and effective thermal management. They’ve managed to shoehorn the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, AAS system, and two anti-dust fans into a thin 17.5-19.9mm chassis to ensure Zephyrus M offers exceptional performance during gaming marathons.

Cooling Technology: Active Aerodynamic System (AAS)
The cutting-edge AAS allows Zephyrus M to run cool and quiet without sacrificing performance. Opening the lid reveals an underside vent that leads to a 9mm-high air chamber. Compared to traditional laptop designs, the AAS creates 20% more space for air circulation, increases system airflow by up to 32%, and reduces internal temperatures by up to 20%. A four-quadrant anti-dust design prevents dust particles and dirt from entering the system when the lid is open; while the patented ADC system actively cleans itself by expelling dust particles and dirt through tunnels, preventing build-up in the thermal fins to increase system stability and lifespan. Two high-performance, dual-outlet fans blow air through ultra slim fins, while the unique heat-pipe architecture cools the CPU, GPU, and chipset power components independently.

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

Cooling Technology: Perfectly-Machined Cooling Holes
In a perfect example of form following function, Zephyrus M has densely-packed cooling holes above the keyboard to help draw cool air into the system. These neatly-arranged holes above the keyboard are not only functional, but add a modern aesthetic touch to the laptop.

Anti-Dust Tunnels
An exclusive internal design forces dust and debris to exit the chassis through the fan module’s two anti-dust tunnels. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, benefitting both performance and reliability.

12V Dual Outlet Fans
Compared to regular 5V fans, the two powerful 12V fans found in Zephyrus M spin 18% faster, and improve airflow by up to 18%. A total of four air outlets help keep internal temperatures low to ensure maximum graphics performance during intense gaming sessions.

Ultrathin Fin Design
The cooling fins used in Zephyrus M are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more fins to be used in the cooling module, this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 13%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.

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 for the cooling required to fully exploit the power of Zephyrus M. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet. A single press of the function key allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan performance to control noise levels and power consumption.

The AAS incorporates AeroAccelerator technology to increase airspeed and airflow efficiency through the laptop. An intricate aluminium alloy shroud around the intake uses curved edges and raised guide fins to channel more cool air towards the fan. The fan features liquid-crystal polymer fan blades that are 33% thinner than standard designs. This allows for more blades to be used, improving airflow through the fan by 26%.

Dedicated Heat Pipes
The unique heat-pipe design cools not only the CPU and GPU independently to avoid thermal throttling, but also keeps chipset power components below 80°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.

Performance: Elevate Your Gaming Experience
Zephyrus M brings gaming desktop-level performance to the gaming laptop scene. It’s powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 Processor with 16GB of DDR4 2666MHz dual-channel memory, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. The innovative AAS ensure additional cooling to cope with demanding gaming marathons. In addition, to house your extensive game library, Zephyrus M features cutting-edge storage, including a 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD.

Performance: ROG-Exclusive Switchable GPU Software
With Zephyrus M, it’s no longer a trade-off between performance and battery life. It offers switchable GPU mode that lets you choose between the power-saving Optimus or the full-performance Discrete Graphics modes. Optimus mode turns off NVIDIA G-SYNC and lets you enjoy battery life up to 6 hours*; G-SYNC mode unleashes the graphics prowess of Zephyrus M for the best gaming experience ever. These two sides to Zephyrus M are easily-accessed in just a few clicks on the ROG Gaming Center dashboard.
*Tested with idle mode.

Display: Super Smooth and Seamless Visuals
The ultra-responsive 15.6-inch IPS-level display boasts a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology to provide super smooth and seamless visuals. The IPS-level panel has a wide 72% NTSC colour gamut that guarantees great contrast and colour reproduction for exceptional true-to-life visuals, while wide-view technology ensures colours stay true, even when viewed from angles of up to 178°. It’s time to play the latest AAA games at maxed-out settings without visual tearing, lag, ghosting or obvious stutter!

• 3ms Response Time.
• IPS-Level Panel.
• 72% NTSC.

G-SYNC: Seamless Gameplay
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. Welcome to the smoothest and fastest gaming experiences yet!

• Seamless: No Tearing.

A Keyboard Made for Gaming
The new layout follows the design of the best desktop-gaming keyboards. That means the entire keyboard module is now designed for the way your fingers are used to playing, with gaps between the function keys for easier identification, and isolated arrow keys for the most accurate fingertip control. The Space key has also been extended and reshaped for more comfort and fewer misses — gaining you crucial extra moments with every accurate press!

Gaming Hotkeys
Four isolated hotkeys are placed above the conventional keyboard for easy and fast adjustments during gaming. These hotkeys are carefully spaced to avoid accidental presses, and with unique keycaps for easy identification by touch alone. The secondary functions of the F1-F12 keys have been designed specifically to help keep your concentration on the game, putting useful controls right where you need them.

Fast and Precise Control
ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology applies to every key you press, ensuring a perfectly-pitched maximum peak force of 62 grams-force (gf). Key presses are registered early, accurately and with extended over-stroke distance — and that means faster and smoother control.

Wi-Fi/Bluetooth: Faster and More Stable Wi-Fi
The Intel Wireless-AC 9560 adapter provides Zephyrus M with Bluetooth® 4.2 support and 2x2 802.11ac Wi-Fi that surpasses Gigabit Ethernet speeds. Enjoy a maximum throughput of up to 1.73Gbps on the 160MHz channel — that’s 5x faster than 802.11n 40MHz channel (300Mbps) and 2x faster than 802.11ac (867Mbps). Multi-user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) technology lets you connect to more devices more efficiently and easily.
