Introducing The ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) Gaming Laptop

At 15.75 mm at its thickest point, the new Zephyrus S (GX531) is 12% slimmer than the original Zephyrus (GX501). It’s equipped with the Intel Core i7-8750H CPU and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics.

It boasts a 15.6-inch display with super-narrow bezels, a 144 Hz refresh rate and 3 ms response time, – all packed into a 14.2-inch chassis. The all-metal chassis meets military-grade durability standards, with a premium finish.

It also comes with the proprietary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) — a design and engineering hallmark of the Zephyrus series.

 

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) Price + Availability

The ASUS ROG GX531 is available for purchase at authorised ASUS dealers with a recommended retail price of RM 7,999 / ~US$ 1,918 / ~£1,519.

Here are some direct purchase links (prices accurate as of 17 December 2018) :

 

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) Key Features

All-metal chassis with Zephyrus Air Intake

The ASUS Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) uses a mix of aluminum and magnesium alloys in the construction of its chassis. It is so tough, it meets military-grade durability standards for jolts and vibration.

Each lid is machined from a solid block of aluminium, using a precise CNC-milling process that takes five tooling stages and nearly 72 minutes to carve out all the intricate details. This creates a lid that is extremely rigid, yet slim.

It also boasts the unique and distinctive Zephyrus air intake. Scissor-door hinges keep a low profile, until the laptop is opened. The act of opening the lid lifts the rear and exposes the Zephyrus air intake for improved cooling performance.

Narrow-bezel display

Narrow bezels allow the 15.6-inch display to be squeezed into a 14.2-inch chassis. This reduces its footprint, while creating a more immersive gaming experience.

The 120 Hz display panel on the original Zephyrus has been upgraded to a 144 Hz AHVA panel in the Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY), while the response time was reduced to only 3 ms.  It now covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut, with wide viewing angles.

Proprietary AAS cooling

Cooling an ultra-thin gaming laptop is a difficult engineering feat. ASUS and ROG thermal engineers came up with a solution they call Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) which debuted in the original Zephyrus.

When the lid of the laptop is lifted, a special vent opens underneath the chassis to let the laptop draw in more cool air. Similarly, the Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) has an AAS intake of 5 mm across the entire back of the chassis to improve airflow by 22% compared to traditional designs. Additional airflow is provided through the keyboard, while the keyboard’s forward layout creates more room for the AAS cooling system.

The Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) boasts five heat pipes that pull heat away from the CPU, the GPU, and the VRM circuitry that feeds them power. The CPU and GPU are connected to both shared and dedicated heatsinks to ensure efficient cooling for any workload, and the power components stay under 80 °C to improve long-term reliability. Thermal energy is channeled along the pipes to four heatsinks and exhaust vents at the rear corners, twice as many as in the first Zephyrus.

Self-Cleaning Fans

Keeping the heatsinks free of dust and debris is key to preserving cooling performance over the long-term. To achieve that, the ROG engineering team added self-cleaning fans to eject particles through anti-dust tunnels. This prevents accumulation of dust and particles on the fins to ensure consistent cooling and improve long-term stability.

12V AeroAccelerator Fans

The Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) comes with dual 12V AeroAccerator fans, which boasts 83 blades each – 17% more blades than the fans in the original Zephyrus. Airflow is also improved by the fan’s shaped aluminum shroud, which has curved edges and raised guides to help channel more air into the blades.

Aura Sync RGB lighting

Integrated RGB lighting lets gamers customize the Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) to their preference, or to match the mood of the game being played. Four independent zones illuminate the keyboard, and additional LEDs create a subtle glow inside the AAS vent.

Improved keyboard

[adrotate group=”2″]

The keyboard-forward layout not only improves its cooling capability, it also allows for a more comfortable desktop-like typing position. Overstroke technology fires earlier in the key travel for quicker responsiveness, and the longer post-actuation distance maximizes the 1.2 mm key travel to improve the overall typing feel.

The switches are rated for 20 million presses, so they can withstand heavy use, and N-key rollover ensures each press registers precisely regardless of how many keys are mashed at once.

Improved audio

The Zephyrus S (US | UK | MY) includes an upgraded sound system. Dual front-facing speakers embedded in the hinge cover are powered by smart-amplifier technology that keeps the speakers within thermal and excursion limits, so volume can reach higher limits without distorting the output or damaging the cones.

Sonic Studio III adds virtual surround-sound for deeper immersion with stereo headsets, and it features a new APO injection capability that extends speaker virtualization to a wider range of gear, including standard analog headphones along with USB headsets, external DACs, and VR devices.

Storage and connectivity

Its Intel Core i7-8750H CPU is backed by fast DDR4-2666 memory and NVMe storage, while 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi connects to compatible wireless networks at greater-than-gigabit speeds.

It comes with USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C and full-size HDMI 2.0 ports, for fast transfers and to support up to two desktop monitors and big-screen TVs.

The NVIDIA Max-Q Design + WhisperMode Tech Briefing

On the first day of Computex 2017, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announced the NVIDIA Max-Q Design for GeForce GTX in his keynote.

It is a new design approach that allows gaming laptops to be thinner, quieter and yet, faster. How is this possible? Let’s find out!

 

The NVIDIA Max-Q Design Tech Briefing

Max Q is actually a NASA term which refers to “the point at which aerodynamic stress on a vehicle in atmospheric flight is maximized“. NVIDIA Max-Q uses a similar philosophy to design gaming laptops that are 3X thinner, with up to 3X more performance (compared to the previous-generation NVIDIA Maxwell GPUs).

So what exactly is the NVIDIA Max-Q design, and how does it work? Gaurav Agarwal, NVIDIA Product Marketing Manager, explains it all in this tech briefing.

Here is a summary of the NVIDIA Max-Q design’s key features :

  • NVIDIA Max-Q is built around NVIDIA Pascal, specifically the GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs.
  • The key design philosophy is a new focus on peak efficiency, instead of peak performance.
  • Instead of running at maximum frequency, the GPU will run at a lower frequency that has been determined to achieve peak efficiency.
  • This greatly reduces the GPU’s power consumption and thermal output, at the expense of some performance.
  • In the case of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, the Max-Q version will run 60 W cooler (90 W, instead of 150 W) while suffering only a 10% reduction in performance.
  • The massive reduction in the TGP (Total Graphics Power) allows a more powerful GPU like the GeForce GTX 1080 in a thinner laptop.
  • The lower TGP also allows for the use of thinner, lighter and quieter cooling solutions, and a longer battery life.

From what we understand, the Max-Q and non Max-Q GPUs are the same. The Max-Q version just uses firmware that has been tuned for efficiency, instead of performance.

 

The NVIDIA WhisperMode Technology

[adrotate group=”2″]

NVIDIA also introduced the new NVIDIA WhisperMode technology, which will be available by the end of June 2017.

Although not technically part of NVIDIA Max-Q, it helps to make the laptop run much quieter while you’re gaming.

WhisperMode intelligently paces the game’s frame rate while automatically adjusting the graphics setting for optimal power efficiency. This reduces reduces the laptop’s acoustic level during games.

NVIDIA WhisperMode is completely user-adjustable via GeForce Experience, and will be available for all NVIDIA Pascal-based laptops.

 

Availability Of NVIDIA Max-Q Gaming Laptops

Gaming laptops featuring GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs using the new NVIDIA Max-Q design will be available starting June 27, 2017 from brands like Acer, Aftershock, Alienware, ASUS, Clevo, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, and MSI.

The first three gaming laptops to feature NVIDIA Max-Q are the ASUS Zephyrus, MSI GS63 and the Clevo P950.

The 2017 ASUS ROG Products Unveiled At Computex 2017!

The last major event of the first day of Computex 2017 was the ASUS ROG Computex 2017 press conference. ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih, who earlier in the day joined Intel at their Computex 2017 keynote, led the presentation of the wide plethora of new 2017 ASUS ROG products.

In this article, we will share with you the details of every new 2017 ASUS ROG product that was unveiled at the ASUS ROG Computex 2017 press conference!

 

The 2017 ASUS ROG Gaming Laptops

The ROG Zephyrus GX501

The delicate balance between portability and power is different for most people, and for every choice there’s likely a sacrifice you’d rather avoid. The ROG Zephyrus GX501 is the answer to your conundrum. If you crave gaming power, its 7th Generation Intel Core i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics will satisfy your hunger. There’s enough juice on tap to pump out better gaming performance than you’ve probably tasted on a gaming laptop.

If you want all that power harnessed in an ultra-sleek 15″ laptop, the Zephyrus is only 17.9 mm thin and weighs in at 2.2kg. The real magic is in the Active Aerodynamic System, which allows the chassis to expand and maximize airflow when you open the lid. How cool is that?

 

The ROG Strix GL702ZC

The Strix GL702ZC is the first gaming laptop to feature an eight-core processor, specifically AMD’s new Ryzen 1700 CPU. Pair that with Radeon RX 580 graphics, and you have VR-ready performance to go. You won’t find another 17-incher with this much multi-tasking power for the price. And you have a nice choice of FreeSync display options, including 4K at 60Hz and 1080p at 120Hz.

 

The ROG Strix GL702VI

If your motto is go big or go home, you know you can’t go wrong with a GeForce GTX 1080 in a 17″ laptop. The Strix GL702VI was created to allow more people to live that dream. Configure yours with an Intel Core i7 or i5 processor and up to 32GB of memory. You can also opt for a 120Hz display and PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD. It’ll be well worth it!

The ROG Strix GL503 and GL703 for eSports Gaming

The new ROG Strix GL503 and GL703 series deliver the best combination of price, performance, and portability. And for the first time, versions have been tailored exclusively for different types of esports games. The Hero Edition is designed for MOBAs, while the SCAR Edition is tweaked for competitive FPS gaming. There’s also a traditional version without genre-specific touches.

These ROG Strix laptops are predominantly black with luxurious brushed-metal covers. At the core of each one lies the latest Intel 7th Generation Core i7 or i5 processor, up to 32GB of memory, and a Pascal-based GTX 10-series GPU. Here’s a look at the different designs:

The Hero Edition designed for MOBA aficionados

The SCAR Edition designed for first-person shooters

The 2017 ASUS ROG Monitors

Wrap your head around this: the world’s first 35″ ultra-wide QHD (3440×1440) monitor with quantum dots, HDR, and G-Sync up to an incredible 200Hz. The ROG Swift PG35VQ‘s gargantuan curved screen and 21:9 aspect ratio will exercise your peripheral vision for immersive action without a VR headset.

The bar for realism has reached new heights, as HDR and quantum-dot technology bring graphics that are truer to life than ever before. It’s not a complete experience without G-Sync and a fast refresh rate for buttery-smooth visuals, and we’ve even added Aura Sync RGB lighting to complete your desktop experience.

 

The New ROG Strix monitors – the XG32VQ, XG27VQ, and XG258Q

Adaptive-Sync, otherwise known as FreeSync, joins the ROG monitor family with the new Strix series. The big daddy of the bunch is the XG32VQ, which stretches its 31.5″ panel across an 1800R curve. This has the highest resolution, at 2560×1440, and the refresh rate scales up to 144Hz.

The XG27VQ features the same curvature on a smaller 27″ screen. Its 144Hz maximum refresh rate is the same, but the resolution is 1920×1080. Speed freaks should pay close attention to the XG258Q, whose flat 25″ 1080p panel would look ordinary were it not for the insanely high 240Hz refresh rate. All three are equipped with Aura RGB lighting, and the XG32VQ can synchronize colors and effects with Aura Sync-compatible hardware.

The 2017 ASUS ROG Motherboards

Both Intel and AMD have introduced their most powerful consumer processors to date. With more CPU cores and PCIe lanes, plus quad-channel DDR4 memory, these new chips look like they’re meant for servers. That’s sort of correct, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them in a killer gaming rig.

 

The ROG Rampage VI Extreme

When you will accept nothing less than the best to pair with your latest Intel Skylake-X processor, the Rampage VI Extreme gives you everything the new X299 platform offers alongside a full slate of ROG enhancements.

New ROG innovations take performance, cooling, and aesthetics even further, which is exactly what want for the foundation of a dream build. Your PC will stand out in a crowd, especially with the new integrated LiveDash OLED showing real-time system info, and the potential for more complex lighting effects via the onboard header for addressable RGB strips.

 

The ROG Strix X299-E Gaming

The Strix X299-E Gaming is the perfect entry point when you want to match the latest Skylake-X processor with an ROG motherboard. Its ATX form allows for mid-tower builds while still offering plenty of slots, ports, and headers. Get ready for the next generation of RGB lighting with addressable LED strips, which let you control each LED individually.

 

The ROG Zenith Extreme

The ROG Zenith Extreme is ready for the upcoming Ryzen Threadripper processor from AMD. The server-like specs are jaw-dropping, so make you have the right X399 motherboard to match. Get ready for quad-channel DDR4 memory support and 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes for a multi-GPU system loaded with ultra-fast NVMe SSDs.

The 2017 ASUS ROG Accessories

The ROG Strix Fusion Headset

Synchronized lighting is now available for your desktop, monitor, and peripherals, so why not your gaming headset? The Strix Fusion synchronizes its RGB lighting across multiple headsets via Bluetooth to show your team colors. The lighting effects can be controlled by a dedicated app for iOS and Android.

Now that you have the other team’s attention, it’s time to prove the Fusion isn’t just for show. Good thing you’ll have the edge thanks to virtual 7.1-channel surround sound.

 

The ROG Scabbard Gaming Mouse Pad

The next massive mouse pad from ROG is the Scabbard, the successor to the hugely-popular ROG Sheath. The massive surface area makes it more of a desk mat; let’s just say you must have mega-long arms if you somehow manage to run out of space. Crafted out of Cordura Lite fabric, the surface provides responsive tracking, excellent durability, and protection against accidental spills.

The ROG Strix Edge Mouse Pad

Those with limited desk space may have a hard time finding the right mouse pad. The Strix Edge solves the problem with a portrait-style orientation that can also be rotated when needed. Light and rollable, the Strix Edge makes a great portable mouse pad. The responsive tracking on the surface and excellent grip on the non-slip rubber base will give you the edge you need wherever you go.
