ROG Zephyrus S sets the standard for ultra-slim Windows 10 Pro gaming laptops. Now it has bigger aspirations with a super-narrow-bezel 17-inch display in a chassis just 18.7mm thin. Zephyrus S GX701 is loaded with up to a GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU. Immerse in its 144Hz/3ms panel with Pantone®-validated colors, and use the ROG-exclusive GPU switch to change between G-SYNC™ for gaming and Optimus for battery life.
Immersing yourself in a larger display usually means lugging a larger laptop, but slim bezels and smart design make ROG Zephyrus S the smallest in its class. Easily carry it around town or across the world thanks to compact dimensions that put a 17-inch display in a 15-inch form factor. The sleek magnesium-alloy body fits inside standard bags* and is strong enough to stand up to everyday life.
Slender bezels frame one of two IPS-level panels. The HDR panel enhances AAA titles with richer colors, brilliant whites, and deeper blacks via local dimming. The HDR display also extends battery life with Panel Self Refresh and Static Display Refresh Rate Switch technologies that cut active power consumption by up to 11%. The SDR alternative gives content creators accurate, Pantone® Validated colors with factory calibration and ProArt™ TruColor Technology. Both boast silky smooth 144Hz refresh rates with blur-free 3ms response times.
Live a double life powered by the ROG-exclusive GPU switch. With just a few clicks, ROG Zephyrus S transitions between better gaming and longer battery life. G-SYNC mode synchronizes the GPU and display to deliver smoother gameplay with lower input lag and tear-free graphics, while Optimus mode selectively turns off the discrete GPU to save power with everyday desktop productivity and entertainment.
Remarkably slim without sacrificing speed, ROG Zephyrus S harnesses the latest GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU to deliver desktop-like performance for hardcore gaming, serious creative work, and cutting-edge VR. The GPU enables photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. It boosts up to 1230MHz at 90W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6001MHz, and both can be overclocked. This powerful core is backed by up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM for heavy multitasking and a 1TB NVMe SSD for your game library and professional portfolio.
Ultra-slim laptops leave less breathing room for cooling, so the unique ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) expands to help Zephyrus S sustain top performance for gaming and other heavy loads. Lifting the lid opens a large intake that increases airflow by up to 32% compared to typical designs. Anti-dust tunnels keep the heatsinks clean to preserve cooling efficiency and system stability over time.
The forward keyboard position lowers surface temperatures on the desktop-style layout, so you can game in comfort for hours. Customize per-key RGB backlighting for different games and workflows, and match colors and effects with compatible peripherals using Aura Sync. Illumination extends to a unique volume roller positioned for quick adjustment and a glowing numpad that appears on the touchpad. *Per-key lighting for F1-F12 on shortcut icon only.
Smart amplifier tech keeps the speakers within thermal and excursion limits when you spin the volume wheel, so you can turn it up without harming the cones. The amplified output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear enemies on the battlefield, dialog in videos, and subtleties of your productivity soundtrack. Plug in a headset for immersion, and go deeper with virtual surround sound.
USB Power Delivery supports secondary charging from portable power packs, so you don't have to fight for a socket when the battery gets low. Fast-charging support reverses the direction, using up to 3A to quickly rejuvenate smartphones and other devices. If you’re not loading the CPU or discrete GPU with intensive tasks, you can use a smaller adapter up to 65W that lightens your load on the road.
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity needed for gaming and working on the go. Alongside the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 and Power Delivery, one Type-A port offers Gen 2 connectivity for devices that can keep up. Another Type-C™ (USB-C™) port is available at USB 3.1 Gen 1 speed, while additional Type-A ports are perfect for a gamepad, mouse, or USB storage. HDMI 2.0 supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
Upgrade your stream with the ROG GC21 external camera. It captures crisp Full HD detail at a silky 60 FPS that makes movement smoother and more nuanced. Despite doubling the frame rate of conventional cameras, ROG GC21 folds to just 17mm thin and slips easily into a pocket. Position the USB-connected camera anywhere for the perfect angle, and be heard clearly by the beamforming microphone array.
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting control to put essentials at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily change settings for both and define up to four game profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles. These options are just the beginning for what will become an even more versatile tool.
