    Thrill Your Senses

    Fast, sleek, and ultraslim, the Zephyrus M16 delivers an exhilarating Windows 10 experience. Everything from pro-level content creation to competitive play is smooth with up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-11900H CPU with liquid metal and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 GPU. See it all on up to a QHD 165Hz/3ms Pantone® Validated display with 100% DCI-P3 color and Dolby Vision support, framed by the world’s first 4-sided super-narrow bezels on a gaming laptop for an expansive 94% screen-to-body ratio. Sink into surround sound with six Dolby Atmos® speakers and dual force-canceling woofers that enrich every kind of entertainment.



    Disappear Into the Action

    Near-rimless at a 94% screen-to-body ratio, the QHD display is immersive and deep. High-FPS gameplay is richer with a balance of high-resolution detail, a 165Hz refresh rate, and a 3ms response time. See full-spectrum color accuracy thanks to Pantone® validation and 100% DCI-P3, ideal for gamers who also create. A tall 16:10 aspect ratio expands views, making it easy to keep critical commands in view.​



    Dolby Vision Technology

    Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision makes media look better. The technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.



    100% DCI-P3 Color

    While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 70% of the Adobe RGB spectrum used for professional art, graphic design, and filmmaking. The Adobe RGB color space was created to take full advantage of the broad range of pigments possible for high-end printers and film, making it a crucial tool for serious creators. Displays with complete Adobe RGB coverage make it easier for artists, videographers, and designers to add to portfolio of professional work.



    PANTONE® Validated

    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.



    Adaptive-Sync Technology

    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. 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 for gameplay that looks and feels more natural.

    16” display on a 15” chassis

    A streamlined design fits a 16” display on a 15” ultraslim chassis. Lighter and smaller than predecessors by up to 5%, the Zephyrus M16 blends full-sized convenience and portability.



    Soft-touch coating

    Soft-touch paint covers the palm rest, minimizing smudges and fingerprints with a thin coating that helps sustain the sleek styling and subtle sparkle through to the end of the day.



    Prismatic shine

    The dot matrix design on the lid is made with a precision CNC milling process that creates 8279 tightly spaced perforations. Prismatic film gleams beneath, adding a subtle shimmering effect against the stark “Off-Black”



    180° ErgoLift

    Open up more viewing angles with the 180° ErgoLift hinge. Typical laptops have a limited range of motion, but the Zephyrus M16 lets you flip the screen all the way back, so it’s easy to share with a group or get the perfect angle for yourself.



    Intelligent Cooling Enables Quiet Power

    ROG’s Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and settings to ensure the best experience for each chassis. For the Zephyrus M16, liquid metal compound cools the CPU. A customized self-cleaning 2.0 thermal module clears dust to improve long-term stability, while Arc Flow fans are designed to generate impressive airflow with reduced turbulence, ensuring powerful-yet-quiet cooling.



    Liquid Metal Thermal Compound

    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, so ROG commissioned custom equipment to automate the process with mechanical precision, and designed a patented internal fence to contain the compound.


    *Unless otherwise stated, figures are based on theoretical performance. Actual figures may vary in real-world situations.



    Updated Self-Cleaning Cooling 2.0

    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 4 heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.15mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density to increase surface area for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. There are 252 heatsink fins totaling 110,328mm2 of surface area.



    Comprehensive Heatpipes

    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.



    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.



    Scenario Profiles

    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.



    Sink Into Sublime Sound

    Streaming, recording, and gaming are streamlined with the Zephyrus M16’s multi-faceted audio system. Boasting Dolby Atmos® technology, twin tweeters and dual force-canceling woofers, acoustics are beautifully balanced, with Hi-Res certification that supports media at the highest fidelity. A customizable 3D Mic array captures audio in a variety of scenarios, while Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation clarifies sound from your feed and incoming feeds as well.​



    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 M16 deploys woofers in pairs that are slightly offset to cancel each others’ vibrations.



    3D Mic Array

    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.



    Lighter. Slimmer. More Portable

    Game, stream, and code anywhere. Ultrafast Thunderbolt™ 4 lets you connect conveniently on the fly to the latest devices, like powerful external GPUs or docking stations. Type-C charging lets you top off your charge from portable power packs, so you can stop scrambling for a socket when your battery gets low. Unplug and unwind with up to 10 hours of battery life.


    *Battery tests conducted by ASUS using the default video playback scenario.

    *Unless otherwise stated, claimed Wi-Fi speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary in real-world situations.



    Thunderbolt™ 4

    With 4x the throughput of USB 3.1, Thunderbolt™ 4 offers fast connectivity to the latest devices. Recharge from power packs with Type-C charging, so you can stay up on the go. Hook up an external GPU to amp up your graphics power for Ultra HD gaming or 3D rendering. Support for DisplayPort™ 1.4 lets you connect two 4K displays at 60Hz, or one 8K UHD TV or monitor for immersive visuals.



    Integrated Webcam

    Our integrated webcam makes it more convenient to stream and create content on the go. Traditional cameras use either 2DNR technology that analyzes individual frames to correct noise, or 3DNR technology that analyzes frames in sequence to improve overall fidelity. Our webcams use a blend of 2DNR and 3DNR technology, reducing noise for images across sequences to get the best of both worlds.



    A Stroke of Genius

    Maintain a low profile with a new Stealth Type keyboard that keep keystrokes under 30dB. Input complex commands at speed with N-key rollover that ensures every press is registered, and Overstroke technology that lowers each key’s actuation point for effortless input.
