Precision-made for power-play:

Built for pro-level competitive gaming, the Zephyrus S15 and S17 laptops boast of up to a powerful 300Hz high refresh rate with 3ms response time for a smooth gaming experience with crisp fast-paced movements.

With up to DDR4 3200 MHz RAM and configurable with up to NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q GPU, the laptop makes for super-smooth visuals. The series features ultrafast Wi-Fi 6 networking for lower latency and less lag on compatible networks, up to two NVMe PCIe® 3.0 SSDs running in RAID 0 for warp-speed load times.

Elegant color scheme:

In addition to its stunning design and powerful engine, the ROG series, Vivobook Gaming and TUF model comes in varied color schemes. Starting with the TUF gaming which will be available in a solid fortress gray color, Zephyrus M15 will be available in Prism Black and Prism Gray schemes, Zephyrus S15 and S17 in a brushed black format and the Vivobook gaming F571 will come in a pristine star black. The striking contrast between its dark brushed look and feel and the shade of night highlights is complemented by a range of peripherals.

Intelligent cooling made possible with liquid metal:

The latest ROG series comes with a liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly that reduces the CPU temperature by up to 12-degrees and provides 35% slow down when temperature increases so the laptop can reach and sustain its highest operating frequency.

This is accompanied by ROG’s design philosophy for intelligent cooling that includes a chassis that is thoughtfully designed to accommodate effective fans and heat sinks. Special liquid crystal polymer (LCP) fans are used with super-slim n-blades and anti-dust technology, come together to increase cooling air that flows through heatsinks with ultrathin fins that maximize airflow and surface area alike, ensuring the best heat dissipation. Based on 12v fans, 83 blades, 3D thermal features and a unique trapezoid cut, the laptop delivers an exceptional cooling mechanism which is also 4% quieter.

Unrivaled excellence on board:

The keyboard on the latest ROG lineup is ideal for marathon gaming or everyday typing. The desktop-style keyboard layout with identifiable gaps between function keys, isolated arrow keys, and an extended space bar make for precision on your fingertips and fewer misses amid a time-sensitive showdown. ROG Overstroke technology makes key presses fire faster, as the keys actuate earlier for a quicker response, and anti-ghosting technology ensures that all key presses register precisely, even when multiple keys are pressed at once.

Taking the keyboard convenience and style one step further, the ROG lineup comes with 4 isolated hot keys, N-key rollover, and highlighted WASD keys. With 2.0 mm travel distance, 20 million key-press lifetime, 0.25 mm keycap curve and AURA Sync which lets you sync and customize light effects with gaming-mice, headset and other peripherals.


There is a lot to do with Thunderbolt connectivity, which gives the flexibility to expand your workstation with additional displays, external GPUs, and high-speed storage for heavy duty multimedia editing. When combined with ultrafast Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) that offers low-latency connections for network-sensitive activities like multiplayer online gaming, you can work and play anywhere.
