Leading OLED Panels With G-SYNC Support

Leading OLED Panels With G-SYNC Support

OLED displays have an ultrafast 0.2 ms response time, which ensures smoother fast-paced action scenes, low-latency gameplay, and subtle details like blur-free text scrolling.

0.2ms Response time

1,000,000:1 Ultra-High Contrast Ratio

1,000,000:1 Ultra-High Contrast Ratio

OLED displays have millions of light-emitting diodes (LED), and unlike traditional display technologies, they can turn each pixel on and off individually. Because of this, OLED panels can achieve pixel-perfect black levels, resulting in extreme contrast ratios like 1,000,000:1. This true black allows for images that appear bright and punchy without feeling washed out, ensuring you never miss an enemy hiding in the shadows. HDR has never looked this good.

2.5K Resolution

Enjoy incredibly vivid scenes thanks to the added visual fidelity offered by a 2.5K resolution. With a higher pixel density than 1440p, 2.5K displays allow the true vibrance of both still images and video content to truly shine.

ROG Intelligent Cooling

Cool, Calm, Collected

ROG Intelligent Cooling is a suite of components that work together in harmony to keep our high-performance laptops cool and quiet. The Zephyrus G16 boasts some never-before-seen additions to ROG’s list of cooling technologies, including 2nd Generation Arc Flow Fans™ and a redesigned high-efficiency air outlet. Certain models also feature a custom vapor chamber or a tri-fan design, with a third auxiliary fan that helps to move excess system heat to the heatsinks. All models also sport liquid metal, an ultra-high performance thermal interface material. Taken together, these systems keep the machine operating at its peak while staying quieter than ever.

Keys To Mastery

Keys To Mastery

The trackpad and keyboard are critical for controlling your laptop, so we spared no expense with the design of the Zephyrus G16. Despite being just a 16-inch device, the G16 boasts a large 16:10 aspect ratio, matching the proportions of the screen itself effortless scrolling. We’ve also increased the keycap size by 12% for smoother typing as well, thanks to extra rigidity from the CNC machining. An extra long 1.7mm travel distance gives the keyboard a premium typing feel, and with a lifetime of 20 million presses, it’s a perfect long-term partner.

Sleek Design

The new Zephyrus G16 catches your eye the moment you see it. Precision CNC-machined from aluminum alloy, this high strength material accepts complex shapes and also looks absolutely gorgeous after being anodized in either Eclipse Gray or the all-new breathtaking Platinum White colorway. The sleek chassis and matte finish of the Zephyrus G16 simply beg to be touched.

A Slice Of Brilliance

In 2024, the G16 breaks the mold, debuting an all new lighting design: the Slash Lighting array. A bold streak across the lid of the machine, Slash Lighting is an evolution of the elegance and individuality that make Zephyrus so unique.

It retains the customization of its predecessor, with a design inspired by sci-fi and contemporary art. 15

Precision Craftsmanship

Built from aluminum alloy 6063, the chassis of the Zephyrus G16 is painstakingly CNC-machined to minimize excess volume while maintaining rigidity. Using precision tools just 0.7mm in diameter, channels for the keyboard, touchpad and speakers are milled to ultra-tight tolerances for a premium and robust chassis with components that stretch edge to edge. After an eight-step process, the sandblasted, polished and anodized G16 chassis stands ready to support its flagship hardware.

100% Aviation Aluminum Alloy | 8 Manufacturing Processes

Carving out channels for the keyboard, touchpad, and speakers with ultra-tight tolerances allow them to lay edge-to-edge. Maximum space, maximum efficiency.

Each keyhole, and the nearby keyboard vents, are milled individually. This gives the metal a more premium finish and maintains structural strength to minimize keyboard flex when the chassis is fully assembled.

The holes for the speakers are drilled at a super high 100,000 RPM, allowing for ultra-tight tolerances and a design that spans from one edge of the machine to the other.

Pump Up The Volume

Pump Up The Volume

Get lost in the music with the new and improved woofers on the Zephyrus G16. With a staggering 47% volume increase and an ultra-low bass frequency of 100Hz, the G16 produces clear and vibrant sound that you wouldn’t expect from an ultra-slim 16-inch machine. Whether you’re vibing to your favorite podcast or saving the world in the latest games, the Zephyrus G16 is ready to pump up the volume.

All day power

he Zephyrus G16 has always been defined by its portability, and the 2024 model is no exception. This incredible gaming machine is a true thin-and-light, weighing in at just 4.30lbs, with some models measuring as low as 0.59" thick. Paired with a 90Wh battery that supports fast charging from 0-50% in just 30 minutes and support for Wi-Fi 6E wireless networking, the Zephyrus G16 is the ultimate gaming and productivity machine for those on the move.

Robust connectivity

Despite its svelte and supremely portable chassis, the G16 offers all of the connectivity to enable your workflow or the battle station of your dreams. Dual USB-C ports, both of which support display output, and one that supports Thunderbolt™ 4 and DisplayPort 2.1 make the very most of this versatile connector. For your other peripherals, dual USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A ports expand connectivity even further. For quick file transfers or extra storage, a dedicated UHS-II MicroSD card reader stands ready.

Robust connectivity


ROG OLED laptops come with an ROG-exclusive OLED Care mechanism that’s proven to protect your display. Image persistence, or burn-in, on an OLED display can occur if a static high-contrast image is displayed for a prolonged period of time. To avoid this, when your ROG laptop is idle for over 30 minutes, our specially designed Pixel Refresh feature kicks in.


Armoury Crate

When you want to tweak settings, monitor temperatures, or tinker with your laptop, Armoury Crate is your command center. Real-time monitoring allows you to see what your GPU, CPU and memory are doing. RGB can be adjusted on a game-by-game basis with Aura Sync. Fan and power profiles allow you to change the acoustics, power delivery, and thermal characteristics of the laptop on the fly. And exclusive game deals keep your library topped off at all times.
