Later this September, a stupendous surprise awaits hardcore gamers—a surprise that’s set to elevate your gaming experience to extraordinary. ASUS ROG Zephyrus S, the new and immensely portable 15.6” gaming laptop with an eighth-generation Intel Core i7-8750H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics, is gearing up to storm the professional gaming world on September 21. You can now pre-order it on Amazon.com at a starting price of $1,899.00. The Republic of Gamers has always succeeded in captivating audiences with splendid products. This amazingly thin (0.62”) and powerful laptop seems well-placed to continue the tradition.
AAA-gaming promises to be a highly satisfying experience on this machine. It runs Windows 10 and comes with 16GB RAM, 512GB storage space, and a dedicated GPU with 8GB memory. The 1920 x 1080 display offers a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of 3ms. This translates into super-smooth gameplay—an experience only enhanced further by the immersive narrow-bezel (5mm) design. Particularly delightful are the quintessential ASUS gaming keyboard with AURA Sync and the high-quality front-facing speakers. To let you plug in to a mouse and a gamepad, you also have two USB 2.0 ports and three USB 3.0 ports.
The consideration that the ROG Zephyrus S holds closest to its heart, however, is terrific gaming coupled with tremendous mobility. To this end, 4.6lbs-machine is built to conform to military-grade standards (read magnesium alloy body, Max Q Design, CNC-milled metal). It masters heat management with its Active Aerodynamic System that has specialized fans and anti-dust tunnels. The metallic body is beautiful to behold, replete with diamond cuts and neat lines but in a chassis that’s almost 12% thinner than the original model.
Few things are more delightful for the gaming community than a computer attuned to their needs of power, portability, style and assurance—all in one package. The ROG Zephyrus S undoubtedly has us counting down with thick, exciting anticipation.
