Asus ROG Zephyrus S Gaming Laptop With 8th Gen Intel Core i7 Launched Specifications Features

ROG is calling the Zephyrus S (GX531) the "world's slimmest gaming laptop", and while its overall thickness is certainly impressive (14.95-15.75mm), some interesting changes needed to be made in order to make sure everything is cooled properly.

In terms of audio, the Asus ROG Zephyrus S features 2X2W external speakers with Smart AMP technology and an array microphone.

As with the Zephyrus S, the Scar II has four-zone RGB LED lighting on its keyboard, a dual-zone RGB LED light bar on its front edge, and another blinkenlight zone behind the ROG logo on its lid. For example, on the inside, Asus has chose to opt for Intel's 8th-gen Core chips - a top spec i7-8750H chip running at 2.2GHz, alongside a whopping 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Now only Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or 1070 graphics options are available here - and both are in the Max-Q design that allows for thinner laptop hardware.

ASUS says that the Zephyrus S is roughly 12 percent slimmer than its predecessor, coming in at 14.95mm to 15.75mm depending on where the measurement takes place.

Detroit Tigers incorporated Aretha Franklin's song titles into their game notes
In his tribute to Aretha Franklin , Donald Trump suggests she "worked" for him which happened to outrage many fans. Franklin was so unapologetically about her paper* (see: cheddar, dough, bread, chicken, coins, or moola).

Asus also claims to have improved the laptop's thermals even further by refining its Active Aerodynamic System, which opens vents that widen as the users lifts the screen when opening the laptop.

There are two versions available-one with a GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5) and a higher end SKU with a GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB GDDR5). A 60-Hz 1920x1080 model will also be available.

Meanwhile, ASUS has not furnished us with local prices and availability for any of these new ROG gaming laptops. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth v5.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac 2X2. From there, the laptop supports up to 32GB of DDR4 memory at 2,666MHz as well as up to a 1TB SSHD at 5,400 rpm, a 1TB spinning HDD at up to 7,200 rpm and an NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD at up to 512GB of capacity for storage.

Since they use the same chassis and motherboard, both also share the same collection of ports, including two USB 3.1 Type-C ports (Gen1 and Gen2), a single USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A port, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, and HDMI 2.0 output.
