The Asus ROG Zephyrus G line of gaming laptops have a well-earned reputation for offering strong performance in compact, eye-catching designs. And this year’s models are thinner and lighter than ever… while also bringing processor, display, and audio upgrades, among other things.

The new Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a 3.3 pound gaming laptop with a 14 inch, 120 Hz, 3K OLED display, up to an Ryzen 9 8945HS “Hawk Point” series processor, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 graphics, while the new ROG Zephyrus G16 is a 4.1 pound model with a 16 inch, 2.5K, 240 Hz OLED display, an Intel Core Ultra 9 185H “Meteor Lake” processor, and NVIDIA RTX 4090 graphics.

Both laptops have aluminum bodies with an updated LED light strip on the lid, this time a simpler 7-zone LED string of lights that zigs diagonally. And both have larger keypads and touchpads than their predecessors, plus extra speakers: there are now six speakers in each laptop, with two tweeters and four woofers for louder, clearer bass.

The 16 inch model has a 90Wh battery with support for 240W fast charging, at least two fans (the highest-spec G16 model has three) an updated cooling system that draws air in through the keyboard as well as from the bottom of the notebook, and a 95W GPU that supports Dynamic Boost up to 115 watts.

The 14 inch version doesn’t have quite as much room to cool those components, so it tops out at a 65 watt GPU with support for Dynamic Boost up to 90 watts, a 73 Wh battery and 180W fast charging.

One downgrade over previous-gen models though? The new laptops have LPDDR5x onboard memory, which is speedy, but not user upgradeable.
