High Refresh Rate Gaming Display

Everything looks and feels fluid, especially fast-paced games. With wide viewing angles and 100% sRGB gamut coverage, the panel also produces outstanding colors. G-SYNC synchronizes the display's frame rates with the GPU's output to eliminate ghosting and screen tearing.

ROG Hyperdrive PCIe M.2 SSD

ROG Zephyrus features an extraordinary 512GB HyperDrive SSD based on the latest NVM Express™ (NVMe) and PCI Express® technologies. With sequential read speeds of 3478MB/s, the M.2 drive loads games, apps, and other data at warp speed. Its copious capacity has ample storage for everything you need.

Achieving Slimness

ROG slimmed the body to a mere 16.9-17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling and unbeatable acoustic efficiency thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System that opens an air vent when the chassis is opened. This makes the ROG Zephyrus the slimmest laptop with a GeForce GTX 1080.

AURA SYNC RGB Gaming Keyboard

ROG 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 gamers' accustomed to desktop keyboards. The 8th-Gen Zephyrus features AURA SYNC, allowing you to synchronize RGB lighting effects across your other AURA SYNC enabled devices.

Active Aerodynamic System

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 32% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling.

  • +20% Airflow Space. +32% System Airflow. -20% System Temps
