DEFINING ULTRA-SLIM GAMING
WORLD’S SLIMMEST GAMING LAPTOP WITH NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1080
ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG’s persistent dedication to innovation. Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops, it has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design, a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, an optional 120Hz wide-view display, and Windows 10 Pro. 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. The sleek chassis also includes an RGB keyboard that will feel familiar to gamers who typically play on desktop PCs.
SLIM AND SLEEK
ROG Zephyrus takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design — an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. An innovative hinge and fan module help keep the high-end GPU cool, resulting in a gaming laptop that’s portable enough to carry with you anywhere yet potent enough to compete with powerful gaming desktops.
ACTIVE AERODYNAMIC SYSTEM (AAS)
PLAY IT COOL
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 gamers 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 32% 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.
ACTIVE AERODYNAMIC SYSTEM (AAS)
ROG-exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) includes several enhancements to make the cooler more effective, improving internal airflow and allowing the fan to spin slower and quieter while maintaining low temperatures. We also adjusted the shape of the intake to reduce noise levels further and make the acoustic profile less obtrusive. Zephyrus runs cool enough to avoid throttling and quiet enough to enjoy your game.
MAKE YOUR KEYBOARD UNIQUE WITH AURA RGB
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. 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 simultaneously. 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.
