The ROG Zephyrus Ultra-Slim Gaming Laptop

ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG’s persistent dedication to innovation. Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops at only 0.7” thin, it has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops. It’s the slimmest laptop to feature a GeForce GTX 1080.

High Refresh Rate Gaming Display

144Hz Refresh Rate 3ms Response Time G-SYNC Panel

ROG Zephyrus’ IPS-Type display has a 144Hz refresh rate that lets you enjoy exceptionally smooth gaming at a true 144 frames per second, plus an ultra-fast 3ms response time that reduces blurring with rapid motion. Everything looks and feels fluid, especially fast-paced games. With wide viewing angles and 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.

Performance for the Next Generation

8th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor and GTX 1080 8GB

Enjoy a vast leap in gaming and productivity performance with Intel’s first mobile Core i7 processor with 6 cores and 12 threads with a boost clock of up to 3.8GHz on all 6 cores. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics let the machine go toe-to-toe with the most hardcore gaming PCs.

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.

Design Innovations

Achieving Unreal 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. 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. The 8th-Gen Zephyrus features AURA SYNC, allowing you to synchronize RGB lighting effects across your other AURA SYNC enabled devices.

Active Aerodynamic System (AAS)

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

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.
