The ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS G15 Review is a unique looking laptop which has been built for portability and performance. It is architected in a way that it is thinner than most 15″ laptops, but still has the hardware to compete with them. Let’s see how it stacks up against the Pro and Air from above.
The Zephyrus comes with an Intel Core i7 with Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.8GHz. This will be able to handle any tasks you throw at it, and is similar to the processor found in the Pro and Air above.
The Zephyrus has no problem running any program or game you throw at it due to the high-end hardware it comes with. Games look amazing on the IPS display and I was able to run demanding PC titles such as Battlefield 1 and Witcher 3 without any issues. The fans are very loud when gaming, but that is to be expected and shouldn’t bother you if you aren’t doing anything else while playing games.
The Zephyrus comes with an NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics card which will handle any game at very high frame rates, but this is one of the loudest laptops on the market due to the fans needed to keep it cool.
ASUS claims that you can get up to 12 hours of battery life on the Zephyrus, but I could only manage around 7 hours depending on my settings. That means that you will have to carry around the charging cable with you because the battery life isn’t good enough to last all day.
The Zephyrus is one of the thinnest laptops available today, measuring in at 0.7″ thick and weighing in at a very light 4.9 lbs. You can easily put this laptop in a bag and carry it around wherever you go with no problem.
The Zephyrus comes with 2 USB 3.1 Type-C ports for connecting to everything from your old accessories, to the new Thunderbolt 3 devices that are starting to become available. On the right side of the laptop you will also find a headphone and microphone combo port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI port for connecting it to another monitor or TV.ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS G15 Review
