Disappear into the Action

High-FPS gameplay is richer with a balance of high-resolution detail, a 165Hz refresh rate, and a 3ms response time. See full-spectrum color accuracy thanks to Pantone® validation, ideal for gamers who also create. A tall 16:10 aspect ratio expands views, making it easy to keep critical commands in view.
Dolby Vision Technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision makes media look better. The technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.
Speed, power, and portability achieve a perfect balance in the Zephyrus M16. Its ultra-slim frame houses a powerful 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-12700H CPU with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3060 graphics. With up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB of ultrafast PCIe Gen 4 storage, everyday work and multitasking faster. Lightning-fast load times for demanding apps makes gaming and content creation speedier than ever.
16" Display on a 15" Chassis
A streamlined design fits a 16" display on a 15" ultraslim chassis. Lighter and smaller than predecessors by up to 5%, the Zephyrus M16 blends full-sized convenience and portability.
Soft-touch paint covers the palm rest, minimizing smudges and fingerprints with a thin coating that helps sustain the sleek styling and subtle sparkle through to the end of the day.
The dot matrix design on the lid is made with a precision CNC milling process that creates 8279 tightly spaced perforations. Prismatic film gleams beneath, adding a subtle shimmering effect against the start "Off-Black".
Open up more viewing angles with the 180° ErgoLift hinge. Typical laptops have a limited range of motion, but the Zephyrus M16 lets you flip the screen all the way back, so it’s easy to share with a group or get the perfect angle for yourself.
Intelligent Cooling Enables Quiet Power
Liquid Metal thermal compound keeps your CPU cool, while redesigned Arc Flow Fans™ spin 84 blades to generate impressive airflow and minimal noise. ROG Armoury Crate software switches seamlessly between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task at hand.
Sink Into Sublime Sound
Streaming, recording, and gaming are streamlined with the Zephyrus M16’s multi-faceted audio system. Boasting Dolby Atmos® technology, twin tweeters and dual force-canceling woofers offer beautifully balanced acoustics. A customizable 3D mic array captures audio in a variety of scenarios, while Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation clarifies sound from your feed and incoming feeds as well.
Dual Force-Canceling Woofers
Woofers produce low frequencies that define bass and help create a richer, more dynamic soundscape for your audio. Sounds at such low frequencies typically produce stronger, more noticeable vibrations. In order to minimize resonance in the smaller chassis, the Zephyrus M16 deploys woofers in pairs that are slightly offset to cancel each others’ vibrations.
3D Mic Array
Three modes for the integrated microphone array give you greater control over your input. Cardioid mode captures sound from right in front of the laptop, while minimizing input from the back, making it ideal for streaming and gaming. Stereo mode uses right and left channels to record a wider soundscape for live music or other immersive experiences. Omnidirectional mode picks up sound from all directions equally for clearer group conference calls.
Lighter. Slimmer. More Portable
Game, stream, and code anywhere. Type-C charging lets you top off your charge from portable power packs, so you can stop scrambling for a socket when your battery gets low. Unplug and unwind with up to 10 hours* of battery life. Get a solid connection even in crowded networks with Wi-Fi 6E.
