If you’re an ROG aficionado and appreciate the fine gaming computers that they bring to the world, this promises to be breathtaking news. The new gaming laptop by ASUS’s Republic of Gamers—the 15.6” ROG Zephyrus S—is ready to be launched on September 21 this year. The military-grade laptop with an eighth-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics is available for pre-order at $1,899.00 – a substantial discount of $100 from its actual price!
There are reasons aplenty for the excitement surrounding the new launch, not the least of which are the strength of processing, the innate style quotient, and the portable-to-the-hilt body. The ROG Zephyrus S with its AURA Sync gaming keyboard weighs 4.6lbs and has a narrow-bezel display (5mm). Its chassis is almost 12% thinner (only 0.62”) than the earlier model in this series but constructed with CNC-milled metal to be military-grade.
When you combine this sheer physical strength with 16GB RAM (with 8GB dedicated memory for the GPU), 512GB storage space, and a 1920 x 1080 screen with a 144Hz refresh rate, you get a laptop tailor-made for immersive gaming. The ROG Zephyrus S well knows how to keep its cool in the thick of furious AAA gaming—with an Active Aerodynamic System that employs fans and anti-dust tunnels.
In terms of the device-support, this laptop lets you comfortably plug in to a mouse and a gamepad through two USB 2.0 ports and three USB 3.0 ports. It is also equipped with two front-facing speakers that complement your gameplay with pure, undistorted sound.
There’s unmatched bliss to be found in a gaming computer that understands the pulse of the community and so ably marries might with durable style. The ROG Zephyrus S has certainly got the marketplace buzzing, and the countdown has begun.
