ROG ScreenPad Plus™

The Zephyrus Duo 16’s iconic second screen has also been improved, with the brand new Corning® Gorilla Glass DXC, paired with a new anti-fingerprint coating. Gorilla Glass DXC reduces surface reflections while increasing hardness by over 40% for better scratch resistance. Less reflections mean you can set the brightness lower, even when used in outdoor and bright environments.

AAS Plus 2.0

Wide 28.5mm Airflow Intake | Up To 30% More Airflow | Up To 3dB Less Noise



Upgraded Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal

Powerful components like the CPU need a thermal interface material to transfer their heat to the cooling system. Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme improves upon standard thermal pastes with 17X higher thermal conductivity, resulting in up to 15°C cooler CPU temperatures. Used exclusively by ROG, this indium and galium compound offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop. And unlike typical pastes, liquid metal will also never dry out, improving long term stability.

Up to 15°C cooler CPU temperature | 17X better thermal conductivity



0dB Ambient Cooling, Zero Distractions

Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Ambient Cooling. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.



Targeted Internal Airflow

Precisely calculated cutouts inside the chassis direct airflow toward internal components. When compared to more traditional designs, this allows for more efficient cooling, reducing CPU and GPU temperatures by up to 6°C. Lower temperatures mean higher sustained boost clocks during intense gaming sessions.

Up to 6°C lower CPU and GPU temp.



Up to 5 comprehensive heatpipes have you covered

Our comprehensive solution uses up to five heatpipes and quad heatsinks for efficient dissipation across all internal components. More heatpipes means more efficient heat transfer, and unlike simpler designs which only cover the CPU and GPU, this layout also draws heat away from the video RAM and voltage regulation modules for better system stability.

22% better thermal coverage



0.1mm ultra thin fin for win

Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher heat dissipation with lower air resistance. There are up to 252 heatsink fins totaling 110,328mm² of surface area.

Up to 13% better heat dissipation | Up to 69% faster thermal conductivity



Arc Flow Fans™ move more air with less noise

Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of our Arc Flow fans. Traditional fan blades have a single thickness from base to tip. Our 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™ have a variable thickness design, down to 0.1mm at the tip. This approach reduces resonance and turbulence, moving up to 13% more air.*

*Compared to previous 83-blade ROG fan design, as tested internally by ASUS.

Up to 13% more airflow | 84-blade down to 0.1mm LCP fans



Sleek Style

From the inside out, the Zephyrus Duo 16 is designed to emphasize the perfect blend of power and refined style. For those who need a gaming flagship that can blend in anywhere, the Duo 16 is the ideal machine.



Rise to the occasion

The built-in second screen is what makes the Zephyrus Duo 16 truly unique, so of course we engineered the hinge to perfection. Thanks to a specially geared hinge, it slides back to sit flush with the main display in one motion and when the lid is opened. The screen stops at a 13° angle, perfect for ergonomics no matter what you’re watching on the secondary display.



Strike from the shadows

Zephyrus is all about sleek power, so the Duo 16 is shrouded in an Off-Black color. This coating keeps the machine looking its best in all light conditions. By keeping fingerprint smudges to a minimum, the Zephyrus Duo 16 will factory new longer than ever.



Classic ROG design

A large iridescent slash across the lid bisects the chassis, representing the dual personality of the Duo 16. The Republic of Gamers “Fearless Eye” logo sits proudly on the lid as well, reminding the world that this machine was built for gamers.



Peek inside

When the lid is opened and the secondary display raises up, a small window is revealed above the keyboard. This portal provides a sneak peek directly at the motherboard of the machine, along with tasteful RGB accents.




Dual Displays. One Device.

The Zephyrus Duo 16 really shows its versatility when you take it on the go. The built-in secondary display means that you always have a second screen available, while the 90Wh battery and USB Type-C™ charging can keep you powering through work all day long. An IR camera with Windows Hello support makes unlocking the machine a breeze.

Expansive 90Wh battery | 50% in 30 mins Fast Charging technology | Versatile Type-C with PD charging



Infrared Camera

An infrared camera ensures seamless unlocking with Windows Hello support, even in low light conditions.



Wi-Fi 6E

Studio Quality Audio

Enjoy studio quality audio from the six speaker soundstage with dual force-canceling woofers. With Dolby Atmos® support, the system can recreate a virtual 5.1.2 channel surround soundstage for incredibly immersive content. Three microphones give you incredible flexibility when joining calls or recording audio, bolstered by Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation that filters incoming and outgoing audio. Enjoy crystal clear voice chat even in noisy environments.

The Key To Victory

The Zephyrus Duo 16 sacrifices nothing. Utilizing NumberPad technology, the trackpad doubles as a full number pad to maximize space on the keyboard deck. N-key rollover ensures that each keypress is independently registered, giving you flexibility in game for complicated combos or accuracy for quick typing. A long 1.7mm key travel makes the Zephyrus Duo 16 very comfortable to type on, minimizing accidental keypresses as well. Per-key RGB and Aura Sync integration allows for robust preset and custom lighting patterns via Armoury Crate.

Replace. Refit. Rearm.

Upgradeability is key to keeping your machine running well for years to come—and the Zephyrus Duo allows you to upgrade both the RAM and storage to extend its lifespan. A special pop-open screw pushes the bottom of the chassis away from the laptop as it’s loosened. The hooks holding those edges together are smaller and stronger than before to make lifting off the panel easy. The Zephyrus Duo has dual SO-DIMMs and allows for future RAM upgrades. Both M.2 SSD slots are also accessible and expandable.




Endless Connectivity

Connect to all of your devices with a robust selection of I/O. A pair of USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports offer DisplayPort™ 1.4a, with power delivery support on one and G-Sync on the other. Two additional USB 3.2 Gen 2 round out connectivity for your peripherals. Enjoy HDMI 2.1 support for an external display, as well as a 2.5G ethernet port, dedicated microSD card reader, and an audio combo jack. Dongles begone!

Kick ass unit!!

this laptop is great! very fast, clean install, great features and XOTIC custom built and shipped very quickly. still learning uses for the second screen. have found a couple. i run Autocad, Lumion, Coreldraw, Revit, and 3D Studio Max without any problems. the only downside is the unit does get warm. nothing major but it will help heat a room.

Kobie Maverick (Houston, US)
Almost Perfect

Visually -10, Id rate this keyboard a 8 (if the mech cherry laptop keyboards are a 10). I kind of like the right side trackpad since I write with my right hand its better, also used a stylus for the small screen and trackpad, so thats something I miss. Gaming is amazing especially if you get them to overclock. Only technical complaint in retrospect is the screen. First of all the screen looks amazing, but its not 4k, even though it kind of looks 4k because of the mini led screen, its one of the best screens I have seen, but the resolution is not 4k, its 2560 x 1600 16:10

My only complaint about this laptop is that it seems so valuable that I would be afraid to take it places for fear the small screen would break or someone would want to steal.

It stayed cool no matter what and the special design seemed to increase its cooling ability.
*PS- If this had cherry mechanical keyboard and 4k screen this would be the best laptop on the planet.
