ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has officially introduced the highly anticipated 2024 Zephyrus G14 and Zephyrus G16, marking a significant leap forward in the world of thin-and-light gaming laptops. These formidable machines combine a stunning new CNC-machined aluminum chassis, innovative Slash Lighting array, and a striking Platinum White colorway, all complemented by AI-accelerated silicon from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA, pushing the boundaries of performance for both gamers and content creators.
Striking Design Overhaul
The Zephyrus G14 and G16 have undergone a complete redesign, featuring a CNC-machined aluminum chassis that achieves the perfect balance of reduced weight, structural integrity, and increased space. The all-aluminum construction allows for an edge-to-edge keyboard design, larger and more powerful speakers with superior bass response, and an expanded chassis for enhanced functionality.
The new Platinum White colorway, with its bold and lustrous matte finish, adds a touch of luxury to the machines. Accompanying this premium design is a distinctive LED lighting array called Slash Lighting, which diagonally spans the lid, offering animated sequences and customizable patterns to ensure users stand out in any crowd.
Despite these premium features, the Zephyrus G14 maintains a slim profile at 1.59 cm thickness and a mere 1.5 kg weight, while the larger Zephyrus G16 is even slimmer at 1.49 cm thickness and a weight of just 1.85 kg, redefining the possibilities of thin-and-light gaming laptops.
Both the Zephyrus G14 and G16 are equipped with cutting-edge AI-accelerated technology from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA 40 Series GPUs. The Zephyrus G14 boasts an AMD Ryzen™ 9 8945HS processor, supporting AMD Ryzen AI and enabling compatibility with Windows Studio Effects productivity tools. Its NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 4070 Laptop GPU provides access to advanced features like DLSS 3.5, Frame Generation, and Ray Reconstruction, delivering improved visuals and gaming responsiveness.
On the other hand, the Zephyrus G16 features an Intel Core™ Ultra 9 processor 185H, boasting 11 TOPS of AI computation power, coupled with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU. This combination ensures exceptional performance in the latest games and creative applications, with dedicated AI support for tools like Omniverse® and Stable diffusion, enhancing cloud-based processes.
Revolutionary ROG Nebula Display
Breaking new ground, both the Zephyrus G14 and G16 feature ROG’s first-ever OLED panels with ROG Nebula Display technology. These fast, bright, and vivid G-SYNC® capable OLED displays promise an unparalleled visual experience for gamers. With the Zephyrus G14 offering a 3K resolution, users can expect stunningly color-accurate visuals and an immersive display that sets new standards for ROG gaming laptops.
The Zephyrus G14 and G16 prioritize effective cooling mechanisms to ensure optimal performance. Tri-fan technology, liquid metal, and a vapor chamber, especially on the high-end Zephyrus G16 model, contribute to maintaining a cool and stable system despite their ultraportable designs.
