Asus ROG Zephyrus G14
The Asus ROG Zephyrus line isn’t new but, with the G14, the company is looking to kick up a notch. The new G14 brings a redesigned lid and a slimmer form-factor – along with the latest and greatest internals for gamers.
The most striking change is the new lid which adds AniMe Matrix LED personalisation. The LEDs let you add custom graphics and animations – a unique feature for the colourful gamer.
On the inside, the G14 features the AMD Ryzen 4000 Series mobile processor. The processor features the world’s first x66 8-core and 16-thread with advanced power efficiency.
The ROG Zephyrus G14 can be specced to include up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU and you also have the option of 120Hz or WQHD panels – a combination likely to provide stunning gaming results.
All of this is housed in a body that is just 17.9mm thick and weighs in at just 1.6kg.
Pricing is not yet available for the G14. The new laptop will be available from late March in the UK.
