Asus Zephyrus S Is a Crazy Thin Gaming Laptop

Asus unveils 'world's thinnest' GTX 1060 gaming notebook

Called the ROG Zephyrus S GX531, the super slim laptop measures just 15.75mm at its thickest point. The display is backed up by either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB GDDR5 or a GeForce GTX 1070 (Max-Q design) with 8GB of GDDR5. For example, on the inside, Asus has made a decision to opt for Intel's 8th-gen Core chips - a top spec i7-8750H chip running at 2.2GHz, alongside a whopping 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. In order to make room for all the components and fans necessary to keep a laptop this thin cool, Asus moved the keyboard to the front of the laptop similar to the original Zephyrus and brought back the digital touchpad/num pad.

Asus achieved all of this in a laptop that's not only thinner but smaller in width, thanks to narrower bezels than ever producing a 15.6-inch screen within a 14-inch laptop frame.

This is apparently down to the company's decision to integrate a custom Active Aerodynamic System cooling system into the device. Both models can be configured with up to two M.2 NVMe solid state drives.

This model will be the only model available in the United Kingdom, and will be available from mid October for £1,999.99.


The Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704 barely looks like a 17-inch gaming laptop.

Being the successor to the original Zephyrus, which launched past year, the new S GX531 model boasts some subtle refinements when it comes to internal specs. The laptop then proceeds to cram it with the latest in gaming laptop hardware. There is also another variant with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphic that can fit up to 24GB RAM. The machine supports DDR4-2666 RAM in pools as large as 32 GB. Connectivity ports include a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port, two USB 2.0 Type-A port, an HDMI 2.0, a Kensington lock, and one 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo jack.

This laptop also marks the debut of Asus's new Armoury Crate software, which unites all of the firm's gaming PC software into a single app. Exact pricing and availability has not been detailed.
