Asus ROG Zephyrus’s: Core i7-8750H, the GeForce GTX 1070, the screen at 144 Hz and thickness less than 16 mm

Last year, Asus has introduced a gaming notebook ROG Zephyrus. It was either the first, or one of the first gaming notebooks with a new generation of cards Max-Q.

In the top version it is equipped with CPU Intel Core i7-7700HQ and GeForce GTX 1080, if that weighed 2.26 kilograms and had a thickness of 17.9 mm! Not to melt from the heat components and helped design allowing the bottom cover to open, thus improving cooling. Here Simon spoke in detail about the laptop and about their impressions of him.

In General, today Asus introduced the ROG Zephyrus S. He seems to be steeper than last year’s model, but not in all. Most impressive is the thickness decreased to 15.75 mm, and the weight to 2.1 kg! It seems that it is the thinnest gaming laptop on the market. It received a six-core processor Core i7-8750H. But with graphics cards is not so simple. Now the maximum that you can get the GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q, and the younger version is equipped with a GTX 1060 Max-Q. But then the screen is Full HD, so a high card will be enough for any game for a long time.




In General, to call ROG Zephyrus’s more cool than the ROG Zephyrus is impossible, but the thickness is impressive. Further, the RAM 16 or 24 GB. For data storage there are a couple of SSD M. 2 format. By the way, the screen is also better, at least on paper. Everything is the same 15.6 inch with Full HD, but now the matrix AHVA with a frequency of 144 Hz instead of 120, and a response time of 3 MS. Keyboard, judging by the pictures, has not changed. The set of ports like normal, but a little strange. There’s HDMI, two USB-C, USB 3.1 one and two… USB 2.0! Well Asus, well, Kamon! It is also unclear what Akkum. Due to the thickness it could do even less, but for a gaming laptop is still not so critical.

To sell starts in September, but prices are not yet announced. Cheap will not be exact.
