Up to a QHD 165Hz/3ms panel delivers the best of both worlds, striking a satisfying balance between fast-paced action and rich, detailed visuals. Quick 3ms grey-to-grey response times minimize motion blur for precise target tracking. Adaptive-Sync makes gameplay ultrasmooth, eliminating visual tearing and minimizing stuttering for deeper immersion.
Virtual worlds are more immersive with QHD displays. Over 3.5 million pixels enable deep realism, smooth color gradients, and rounder curves. Entertainment experiences are more engaging with lifelike colors and detail, from gaming to videos.
WIDE COLOR GAMUT
While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 75% of the DCI-P3 spectrum used for professional filmmaking. Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut and rich color, and let you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be experienced.
Achieve true color confidence with PANTONE® Validated displays. Each IPS-level panel is factory calibrated to guarantee that every color you see meets rigorous and globally recognized Pantone® Color Validation requirements. Superior color accuracy allows artists, designers, and content creators to do serious professional work and enjoy richer gaming visuals all on the same machine.
Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they frequently get out of sync. This causes visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With Adaptive-Sync, the refresh rate of the display* synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural.
-SPEAKERS- IMMERSIVE SURROUND SOUND
Six speakers powered by Dolby Atmos technology put you in the center of the action. Twin tweeters face front to fire sound directly at you for louder volume, while pairs of force-canceling woofers under the palm rests balance acoustics and minimize unwanted resonance. Turn up the volume at parties and events and enjoy louder, more dynamic audio.
6 Speakers | Dual Force-Canceling Woofers
Woofers produce low frequencies that define bass and help create a richer, more dynamic soundscape for your audio. Sounds at such low frequencies typically produce stronger, more noticeable vibrations. In order to minimize resonance in the smaller chassis, the Zephyrus G15 deploys woofers in pairs that are slightly offset to cancel each others’ vibrations.
RICH SPATIAL SOUND
Whether you’re using headphones or speakers, Dolby Atmos technology enhances spatial immersion with more nuanced and layered virtual surround sound effects that can be further optimized with specially tuned preset modes for movies and games.
SMART HEADSET AMP
Tune into louder, more immersive audio with a built-in headset amp. This smart audio amplifier automatically detects the impedance of connected headsets and adjusts settings to drive superior sound. Its high signal-to-noise ratio improves clarity so gamers can better distinguish enemy movements from ambient and environmental sounds. With audio up to 1.5x clearer, even soft footsteps are easier to track from afar.
-MICROPHONE- CLEAR VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
Updated audio inputs make all your streams and voice chats clear. Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation clarifies upstream and downstream audio, filtering out unwanted noise to make voice communication clearer. The 3D mic array captures a broad soundscape that can be optimized for specific scenarios like recording live music or hosting conference calls.
3D Mic Array | 3 Input Modes | Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation
Advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation works with any input device and also with downstream connections, letting you remove noise from your mic input and from incoming feeds. It also runs on the CPU, which frees up the GPU to hit higher FPS. Noise-canceling settings can even be customized per program, filtering specific apps like voice chat without affecting game audio you want to remain untouched.
TUNED MIC MODES
Three modes for the integrated microphone array give you greater control over your input. Cardioid mode captures sound from right in front of the laptop, while minimizing input from the back, making it ideal for streaming and gaming. Stereo mode uses right and left channels to record a wider soundscape for live music or other immersive experiences. Omnidirectional mode picks up sound from all directions equally for clearer group conference calls.
-COOLING- INTELLIGENT COOLING IMPROVES YOUR EXPERIENCE
ROG’s Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and system settings to ensure the best experience for each chassis and components, no matter what you’re doing. For the Zephyrus G15, liquid metal thermal compound keeps your CPU cool. A self-cleaning thermal module clears dust to improve long-term stability, while dual Arc Flow fans spin redesigned blades to generate impressive airflow with minimal noise. ROG Armoury Crate software switches seamlessly between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task.
Liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly reduces CPU temperatures by up to 10°C* compared to standard thermal paste. Painting it onto CPUs is delicate work typically done by hand, but ROG commissioned custom equipment to automate the process with mechanical precision, and designed a patented internal fence to contain the compound. We’ve updated our patented process for AMD CPUs, adding a special step to protect surface-mounted components on the processor package.
NEW ARC FLOW FANS
Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of the Arc Flow fans. Each one features 84 blades that vary in thickness from base to tip to maximize airflow, and the blades are capped by a special aerodynamic wave pattern that minimizes turbulence and noise. Steady, evenly regulated airflow ensures greater reliability over time. The fans are made of a special liquid-crystal polymer that’s strong enough to spin at high RPMs even at ultrathin sizes, enabling our highest blade density and improving airflow by up to 5%. With 0dB Technology, the fans switch off completely when CPU and GPU temperatures drop below 50°C in the Silent operating mode. This makes cooling truly silent under light workloads.
UPDATED SELF-CLEANING COOLING
Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation. Our latest anti-dust measures channel particles away from the fan blades, heatsink fins, and other cooling components to prevent build-up over time. This self-cleaning cooling system helps ensure consistent cooling performance over time, improving long-term stability and overall reliability.
MORE ULTRATHIN FINS
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks in the flanks. Each one is lined with ultra-thin fins as slim as 0.15mm, allowing higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. There are 247 heatsink fins totaling 93,354.2mm2 of surface area. They’re specially shaped for the chassis, guiding airflow in multiple directions to minimize interference from the ErgoLift design.
6 heatpipes pull heat away from not only the CPU, GPU and VRAM, but also the VRM circuitry supplying them with power. Reducing the temperature of these components helps improve long-term stability and reliability.
THE RIGHT MODE FOR THE MOMENT
Scenario Profiles automatically change operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed, Performance mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment. You can customize Scenario Profiles to seamlessly switch modes based on your preferences, or use a keyboard shortcut to change modes manually.
