The World’s slimmest laptop is back for another show for the consumer and it’s better than ever. The ROG Zephyrus is ASUS very own high grade ultra thin laptop that possibly has the sexiest look – period. You can read our Zephyrus M review here. This time we get their new ROG Zephyrus S, which is another gaming laptop to go cray on.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus S
The ROG Zephyrus S is still the World’s thinnest laptop and this time, it’s 12% slimmer than the original Zephyrus which was unveiled last year. Just like the predecessor, the Zephyrus S is constructed in an all-metal chassis with a mixture of aluminium and magnesium. Maintaining such a thin chassis requires a powerful thermal solution – with that said, the ROG Zephyrus S has an Optimum cooling with their patented Active Aerodynamic System, where the moment the laptop lid is open – it also opens up a special vent at the side to improve the airflow and thus keeping the system cool as possible.
The Zephyrus S is also the other laptop to feature their new Armoury Crate which is replacing the ROG Centre which helps you control all the lighting. Now it has a new unified platform that allows you to control the settings, lighting and even have profiles for the games you play.
On the front, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S rocks a 15.6” inch display in a chassis of a 14.2” inch body. The panels offer great viewing angle and with that said, the display pushes the frame rates to 144Hz with 3ms response time.
Under the hood, the Zephyrus S is equipped with the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor coupled with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of VRAM. It also comes with (8+8) 16GB DDR4 RAM to meet all of your daily tasks – which is amazing. As for the storage, it is equipped with a 512GB PCIe SSD as well. The sound system on the Zephyrus S gets a bump up as it now has smart-amplifier technology powering up the speaker – thus reducing the distortion in anyway possible.
