ROG Zephyrus announced, slim gaming laptop with GTX 1080
Gaming notebooks don’t have to be chunky to sport the latest graphic unit and that’s just what ASUS showed to during its ROG launch in Computex 2017.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus is one of the first notebooks to use the NVIDIA Max-Q technology which lets OEMs put in a graphics unit in a slim laptop. The ROG Zephyrus just measures 0.7-inch at its thickest point and weighs just 4.85lbs but it already has the NVIDIA GTX 1080 inside and the latest Intel Core i7 processor.
To keep things cool, ASUS has blessed the notebook with what they call ROG Active Aerodynamic System. The bottom of the notebook lifts out to reveal an exhaust port when needed and hides when not. Also, its ROG Aura keyboard is front loaded with RGB backlighting.
Details are currently sparse, but we’re sure to hear more about this gaming machine in the coming days.
