The ROG series from Asus has been upping the ante for gaming laptops right from the start, challenging traditional notions about gaming laptops being bulky, heavy or poorly designed. Now, Asus has come out with another performance beast with a body that is beautifully designed as well. They have now come out with Zephyrus S GX531GX, and it has all our attention. With powerful specs under the hood and superb looks over, this laptop is one to look out for.

Design

The ROG series has raised the bar for gaming laptops, with their slim, stylish and light-weight design. With dimensions of 14 x 10.6 x 0.63 inches (that is 36 x 26.8 x 1.61 in centimetres), the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX is about as thin as an Ultrabook. Its trademark keyboard is placed at the lower end to make more room for components, along with a trackpad on the right, that also doubles up as a numerical keypad. The laptop comes equipped with the Active Aerodynamic System (AAS), which allows the back of the laptop to be raised above the surface, to ease typing and gaming. The laptop weighs a mere 2.2kg, which is incredible considering that it is immensely power-packed.

Specifications

This laptop comes with some of the best components of the world, with a hexa-core Intel Core i7 8750H processor, 16GB (DDR4) of RAM, 15.6-inch 1080p screen and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 8GB graphics card. A 512GB SSD provides the storage solutions as well as a quick booting time. The device has dual speakers and comes enabled with Bluetooth to ensure audiophiles have their heart’s fill. The laptop comes pre-installed with Armoury Crate – a software designed to ease the process of updating the latest drivers for your hardware from ASUS servers, and installing them in an automated process with little user-intervention.

Display

The display of the device has a 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 Full HD panel running at 144Hz, with only 7.5mm bezels around the screen. With response time as low as 3ms, it feels amazingly fast and responsive.

Heat Dissipation

This beastly machine with so much power produces a lot of heat too, but the user doesn’t feel any of it, courtesy a series of anti-dust tunnels that connect to the heatsinks to keep them clear. There are five pipes tunnelling air to-and-fro, along with two 12V fans with 83 blades each, which make sure the laptop cool while also running as quietly as possible.

Price

Asus ROG Zephyrus S is an amazing laptop launched with top-of-the-line specs and mind-boggling performance. However, this premium performance has a price to match. Prices in India start from Rs 2,99,999.
