ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG's persistent dedication to providing innovation, cutting edge technology and a tactical advantage to ROG Gamers.
Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops, the ROG Zephyrus GX501VI-XS74 has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops:
ROG slimmed the Zephyrus's body to a mere 17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System. The sleek chassis also includes an RGB keyboard that will feel familiar to gamer who typically play on desktop PCs.
Max-Q design is an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Everything’s engineered for the ultimate thin gaming laptop experience, including the laptop, chip, drivers, thermal and electrical components, etc.
ROG Zephyrus takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 17.9mm thin and it weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the latest technologies.
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 gamer 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 40% 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.
AAS incorporates a unique AeroAccelerator (AA) technology that increases the speed and efficiency of airflow through the laptop. It starts with the carefully shaped aluminum 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 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%. Cool air passes over heat sink 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.
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 gamer accustomed to desktop keyboards.
Aura RGB lighting lets you customize colors 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 at once. 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.
Zephyrus is all about bringing innovative technologies and incredible gaming performance to an ultra-slim, portable, and stylish gaming laptop. Intel's 7th Generation Core i7 processor and NVIDIA's 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.
ROG Zephyrus features an extraordinary 512GB HyperDrive SSD based on the latest NVM Express™ (NVMe) and PCI Express® technologies. With ultra-fast access times and blistering transfer rates, the M.2 drive loads games, apps, and other data at warp speed. Its copious capacity has ample storage for everything you need.
Zephyrus’s 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 colors regardless of where you're sitting.
NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to make game play silky smooth. G-SYNC minimizes 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.
Take the plunge into virtual reality. With the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX graphics, ROG Zephyrus delivers smooth, stutter-free VR performance with frame rates exceeding 90FPS. 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.
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 (4x the bandwidth of USB 3.1 gen 2 ports) while four USB 3.1 gen1 ports are ready for all your existing gear. With HDMI 2.0, you can connect to 4K TVs at 60Hz.
Zephyrus equips Smart Amp technology to optimize audio output. In most cases when pushing the volume to the limit, speakers can break down easily because of excess heat and excursion. Smart Amp technology protects speakers by setting thermal and excursion thresholds, and monitoring variations due to loading and temperature influence.
