Asus is committed to 2020 and has provided most gamers with a wide range of options to choose from, we have seen the new members of the Strix and TUF families. Now it is the turn of the new Asus ROG Zephyrus, this line is characterized by a more elegant design and focus on innovation. There are three lines of Zephyrus that have been presented, all with updated components, we will talk in-depth about their characteristics and specifications. Let’s start.

Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15: Dual Screen for Playing and Creating Content

Among all the Asus ROG Zephyrus the one that attracts the most attention is the Zephyrus Duo 15, this laptop inherits the double screen we already saw in the Asus ZenBook Duo. However, the viewing angles have given a twist to the theme and now the secondary screen can be raised offering a certain tilt that improves its display. Also, having that tilt leaves room for the Asus to use as an air intake. All this makes the secondary display easier to see and also improves the cooling. In addition to the cooling, the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 uses liquid metal as a thermal paste.

The decision to use this material for refrigeration was born from the need to offer maximum performance without excessive temperatures, but you will have to wait for our analysis to confirm the brand’s words. What is inside the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15? Tenth generation Intel processors: Intel Comet Lake i7-10875H or Intel Comet Lake i9-10980HK. The base RAM is 16GB DDR4 at 3200MHz soldered to the board, but you can add another 16GB to the expansion slot to make up the 32GB that is capped for the amount of RAM.

For multimedia, the screen is 15.6 inches IPS and the refresh rate depends on the resolution. If you choose the UHD model (3.840 x 2.160) the refresh rate will be 60Hz, while if you are more conservative and stay in FHD, the refresh rate goes up to 240Hz. In both cases, these screens will be validated by Pantone and will offer 100% Adobe RGB or 100% Adobe sRGB respectively. It will depend on the user to choose if s/he prefers more Hz to play online games or if s/he prioritizes the resolution to work or watch series and movies. The overall design of the Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 is austere, the greatest gamer expression it can have is the keyboard that features RGB lighting.

Asus ROG Zephyrus S15 AND S17: G-sync and 300 Hz Refresh Rate

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S15 and S17 are the last two laptops that Asus has introduced. Like the previous ones, it comes with the latest from Intel and NVIDIA. Specifically, they are two models, one 15-inch and one 17-inch. Let’s start with the smaller one, this panel is IPS level, not IPS; Asus has not specified its technology at the moment. The resolution is conservative, Full HD or 1920 x 1080 pixels, as far as the refresh rate is concerned it goes up to 300Hz. And, of course, it is also Pantone validated and offers 100% sRGB color space. Also, it is compatible with G-SYNC and Optimus, and you can choose between these two technologies at the touch of a button.

Inside the Asus ROG Zephyrus S15’s gaming chassis you will see Intel processors, 10875H or i7-10750H and accompanied by NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super or 2070 Supergraphics. The RAM has a maximum of 32GB DDR4 at 3200Mhz and the storage uses solid-state M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 units with RAID 0 support. The Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 for its part mounts a 17-inch panel with Full HD resolution or 1920 x 1080 pixels, the panel technology is IPS type, but Asus has not given more details about what that means. What we do know is that it is Pantone validated and manages to display 100% of the sRGB color space.

As for the gaming potential of this screen, it is marked by the ability to update 300 times per second or what has been a refresh rate of 300Hz. The technical specifications are almost identical to the 15-inch version, except for some nuances as there is only one option for the processor: Intel 10th Gen Core i7-10875H. The graphics, RAM, and storage are the same as in the Asus ROG Zephyrus S15. Unfortunately, we don’t have data about the battery capacity. But taking into account that the size is bigger, it is most likely that the figure has also increased, although we all know that powerful computers do not usually glitter with their battery life. And, like the other ROG computers just introduced, it uses liquid metal as a thermal paste.
