ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS M
ELEVATED PERFORMANCE. UNCOMPROMISED MOBILITY.
ROG Zephyrus M picks up where its predecessor, ROG Zephyrus, left off — delivering mighty performance in a minute package. It’s powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 graphics, and features an IPS-level display with a superfast 144Hz refresh rate, lightning-quick 3ms response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology. The revolutionary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) ensures Zephyrus M runs cool and quiet even at high processor loads. ROG-exclusive software lets you switch between integrated and discrete GPU modes — the Optimus power-saving mode gives you impressive battery life,while the G-SYNC mode lets you experience its graphics prowess in all its glory!
MIGHTY. MOBILE. MODERN.
A brushed aluminum finish with a Black Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme give Zephyrus M a modern and sophisticated look that sets it apart from other gaming laptops. ROG engineers found the sweet spot for maximum cooling performance and effective thermal management. They’ve managed to shoehorn the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, AAS system, and two anti-dust fans into a thin 17.5-19.9mm chassis to ensure Zephyrus M offers exceptional performance during gaming marathons.
ACTIVE AERODYNAMIC SYSTEM (AAS)
The cutting-edge AAS allows Zephyrus M to run cool and quiet without sacrificing performance. Opening the lid reveals an underside vent that leads to a 9mm-high air chamber. Compared to traditional laptop designs, the AAS creates 20% more space for air circulation, increases system air flow by up to 32%, and reduces internal temperatures by up to 20%. A four-quadrant anti-dust design prevents dust particles and dirt from entering the system when the lid is open; while the patented ADC system actively cleans itself by expelling dust particles and dirt through tunnels, preventing build-up in the thermal fins to increase system stability and lifespan. Two high-performance, dual-outlet fans blow air through ultraslim fins, while the unique heat-pipe architecture cools the CPU, GPU, and chipset power components independently.
PERFECTLY-MACHINED COOLING HOLES
In a perfect example of form following function, Zephyrus M has densely-packed cooling holes above the keyboard to help draw cool air into the system. These neatly-arranged holes above the keyboard are not only functional, but add a modern aesthetic touch to the laptop.
An exclusive internal design forces dust and debris to exit the chassis through the fan module’s two anti-dust tunnels. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime, benefitting both performance and reliability.
12V DUAL OUTLET FANS
Compared to regular 5V fans, the two powerful 12V fans found in Zephyrus M spin 18% faster, and improve airflow by up to 18%. A total of four air outlets help keep internal temperatures low to ensure maximum graphics performance during intense gaming sessions.
ULTRATHIN FIN DESIGN
The cooling fins used in Zephyrus M are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more fins to be used in the cooling module, this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 13%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.
While the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures, you can select different modes to suit the situation at hand. Overboost is the most aggressive setting, with the fastest fan speed for the cooling required to fully exploit the power of Zephyrus M. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet. A single press of the function key allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan performance to control noise levels and power consumption.
The AAS incorporates AeroAccelerator technology to increase airspeed and airflow efficiency through the laptop. An intricate aluminum alloy shroud around the intake uses curved edges and raised guide fins to channel more cool air towards the fan. The fan features liquid-crystal polymer fan blades that are 33% thinner than standard designs. This allows for more blades to be used, improving airflow through the fan by 26%.
DEDICATED HEAT PIPES
The unique heat-pipe design cools not only the CPU and GPU independently to avoid thermal throttling, but also keeps chipset power components below 80°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.
