One of the highlights for gamers from this year’s CES is ASUS Republic of Gamer’s announcement of the new Zephyrus G14 and G15 Gaming Laptops. These ultra-slim gaming laptops are designed to bring the price down to a point where more people can afford the high-end performance in a mobile platform.
“ASUS continues to drive innovation on Windows 10 with their latest ultra-slim laptops. The Zephyrus G14 and G15 provide exceptional gaming and content creation experiences without compromising power or portability, and now at price points that will make them even more affordable for students, freelancers and creators,” says Nicole Dezen, Microsoft’s VP of Device Partner Sales.
These new laptops are ultra-thin, coming in at 17.9mm. They also have customized cooling, which allows for new AMD Ryzen 4000 Series Mobile Processors to be built into the “Zen 2” core architecture. This new design also features 7nm process technology and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. Using Type-C powerpacks, the laptop will get more than 10 hours of battery life per charge. Depending on whether you’re looking for gaming or creative functionality, you can chose between a high refresh or high resolution. Both come with Pantone Validated colors and adaptive sync technology. The G15 comes in slightly larger, at 19.9mm, but offers a 240Hz IPS-level gaming panel as well as Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. The exterior is also receiving an upgrade featuring either Moonlight White or Eclipse Gray and has a new, optional AniMe Matrix LED display that allows users to show custom graphics, animations, and other effects on the laptop’s lid.
Both the G14 and the G15 offer up to 32GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 memory and come with NVMe SSDs (PCI-E Gen3) up to 1 TB. They also come with Intel WiFi 6 and are Bluetooth 5.0 capable. As for connections, you’ll find USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports and HDMI 2.0 output. ASUS hasn’t released any information on pricing yet, but they are looking to the first or second quarter of 2020 for a release.
