After making a big splash with AMD-powered laptops, it’s Intel’s turn to shine! ASUS ROG Philippines finally unleashed its new ROG Zephyrus and TUF gaming laptops powered by 11th-Gen Intel processors. We have two new Zephyrus gaming laptops: the Zephyrus M16 and the Zephyrus S17. If you’re more of a budget-conscious gamer but want a good experience, there are also new TUF gaming laptops: the TUF Gaming F17 and F15 and the TUF Dash F15.
ROG Zephyrus S17: A Leap Beyond What You Expect
If you wanna have more comfort while gaming on a laptop, then the Zephyrus S17 is for you! Its Rising Optical Mechanical Keyboard design that adds a 5° tilt improves airflow by 25% and provides exceptional typing comfort. This laptop also has ROG’s innovative AAS Plus technology and the ROG Intelligent Cooling feature with redesigned Arc Flow fans. Those specific features create a quiet and more efficient airflow system and further reinforces the Zephyrus S17’s thermal capacity.
With up to an 11th-gen Intel Core i9 CPU paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, this laptop provides the best possible experience in gaming and other heavy tasks like video editing. It also has enough RAM and storage to support those experiences with up to 32GB RAM and up to 3TB SSD storage. You have display options between 4K UHD 120Hz or WQHD (1440p) 165Hz.
Zephyrus M16: Redefining Immersive Gaming
The Zephyrus M16 adds to the Zephyrus M lineage with not only the newest specs but also a rehaul of its design. It has a lot going for it including a 16” screen display in WQHD resolution with a 165Hz refresh rate. That fast display has a 3ms response time and Adaptive-Sync. You can really immerse yourself with its full 16:10 display with a 94% screen-to-body ratio. If you’re a graphic artist or a video editor, then you’ll appreciate the display as well thanks to Pantone Validated colors across 100% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut, supported by Dolby Vision.
This gaming laptop has up to an 11th-gen Intel Core i9 CPU paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. The combination lets you rip through most applications and can really power that wonderful display. You can also expect high-tier performance on every aspect from its up to 32GB RAM and up to 2TB SSD. With a 90 watt-hour battery, you get up to 10 hours of battery life. Having Thunderbolt 4 support also helps with that immersion especially when using more displays.
