12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12900H CPU

Game, stream, and create at a professional level with up to a 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12900H CPU. These high-performance CPUs are engineered to deliver enthusiast level gameplay in smaller, slimmer, and more portable devices than ever. Clocking up to an astounding 5GHz and capable of activating 14-cores and 20-threads, gamers and creators can harness industry leading power to blaze through the most demanding tasks.


NVIDIA DLSS gives games a speed boost with uncompromised image quality. Crank up the settings and resolution for an even better visual experience.



Ray Tracing is the holy grail of graphics. It simulates how light behaves in the real-world to produce the most realistic and immersive graphics - and it runs fast thanks to 2nd Gen RT Cores.



NVIDIA Max-Q is a suite of technologies powered by AI that optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.

MUX Switch

Modern gaming laptops use powerful, dedicated graphics chips for high performance - but most route those frames through the CPU's integrated graphics before reaching the display. This offers better battery life, but prevents your GPU from giving its absolute best performance. So we're bringing a MUX switch to all 2022 ROG laptops. For competitive games, you can switch to a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 9%.

Keep Your CPU Cool With Liquid Metal

Liquid Metal Compound from Thermal Grizzly reduces CPU temperatures by up to 10° C compared to standard thermal paste. Applying it onto CPUs is delicate work, so ROG commissioned custom equipment to automate the process with mechanical precision, and designed a patented internal fence to contain the compound.

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 other's 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.

WiFi 6E

Ultrafast WiFi 6E (802.11ax) lets you game reliably at LAN speeds wherever compatible connections are available. Network connectivity is faster and more efficient, which is especially useful in crowded spaces where traffic is high. WiFi 6E also boasts an updated Target Wake Time mechanism that extends battery life and a new WPA3 security standard that improves wireless protection.
* Unless otherwise stated, claimed WiFi speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.

Disappear into the Action

Near-rimless at a 94% screen-to-body ratio, the up to WQXGA 165Hz 3ms display is immersive and deep. High-FPS gameplay is richer with a balance of high-resolution detail and a 165Hz refresh rate. See full-spectrum color accuracy thanks to Pantone® validation and 100% of the DCI-P3 color space, ideal for gamers who also create. A tall 16:10 aspect ratio expands views, making it easy to keep critical commands close.

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.

100% DCI-P3 Color

While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 70% of the Adobe RGB spectrum used for professional art, graphic design, and filmmaking. The Adobe RGB color space was created to take full advantage of the broad range of pigments possible for high-end printers and film, making it a crucial tool for serious creators. Displays with complete Adobe RGB coverage make it easier for artists, videographers, and designers to add to portfolio of professional work.

Pantone® Validated

Achieve true color confidence with Pantone® Validated displays. Each IPS-level panel is factory calibrated to guarantee that every color you see meets rigorous and globally recognized Pantone® Color Validation requirements. Superior color accuracy allows artists, designers, and content creators to do serious professional work and enjoy richer gaming visuals all on the same machine.

Adaptive-Sync Technology

Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With Adaptive Sync, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.

Outperform Everyone

Speed, power, and portability achieve a perfect balance in the all-new 2022 Zephyrus M16. Its ultra-slim frame houses a powerful 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12900H CPU with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. With up to 16GB of DDR5 4800MHz RAM and up to 1TB of ultrafast PCIe® 4.0 storage, everyday work and multitasking is faster. Lightning-fast load times for demanding apps makes gaming and content creation speedier than ever.

16" Display in a 15" Chassis

A streamlined design fits a 16" display in a 15" ultra slim chassis. Lighter and smaller than predecessors by up to 5%, the Zephyrus M16 blends full-sized convenience and portability.

Soft-Touch Coating

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.

Prismatic Shine

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".

180° Ergolift

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.
