Boost Performance With AI
NVIDIA DLSS gives games a speed boost with uncompromised image quality. Crank up the settings and resolution for an even better visual experience.
More Immersive Experiences
Ray Tracing is the holy grail of graphics. It simulates how light behaves in the real-world to produce the most realistic and immersive graphics for gamers and creators - and runs fast thanks to 2nd gen RT Cores.
Optimized Power And Performance
NVIDIA Max-Q is a suite of technologies powered by AI that optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.
Get More With MUX
Modern gaming laptops use powerful, dedicated graphics chips for high performance—but most route those frames through the CPU's integrated graphics before reaching the display. For competitive games, a MUX switch opens a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 9%.
Lightning Fast Load Times With Gen 4 SSD
Up to 2 NVM Express® (NVMe®) PCIe® Gen 4x4 SSDs running in RAID 0 bring incredible speed and responsiveness to your system. Stocked with up to 4TB of storage, this PCI Express® array is spacious enough for your most massive multimedia projects and modern games. Quicker load times with PCIe® Gen 4 across your entire catalogue of apps and programs means less idle time waiting and more quality time for work and play.
Next Gen Multitasking With DDR5 RAM
Multitasking is fast and efficient with up to 64GB of DDR5 4800MHz memory. Gamers and content creators can easily stream, chat, and play at the same time, while power users can run every program they need for maximum productivity. Both SO-DIMMs are easily accessible for future upgrades.
NEBULA HDR DISPLAY™
Mini LED. Maximum Vibrance.
Mini LED allows for deeper contrast and higher brightness than traditional LED displays, allowing for an image that pops off the screen with VESA DisplayHDR™ 1000 certification. Prepare to be dazzled by vivid colors with 100% DCI-P3 coverage.
*Pantone® Validated colors only available in SDR mode
Precise Contrast With The Nebula HDR Engine
Our Nebula HDR Display™ is powered by AMLED technology from AUO and ROG’s own in-house backlight algorithm. This adaptive control technology utilizes image processing as well as dynamic dimming and boosting to create hyper-accurate local dimming, which reduces the blooming effect seen on some HDR panels. With the increased density of Mini LED, your content will look more vibrant than ever.
As an alternative to the Nebula HDR Display™, ROG is offering a second panel option on the Zephyrus Duo 16. Co-developed with BOE, ROG is proud to offer the world’s first Dual Spec panel. This revolutionary display is able to switch from 4K 120Hz to FHD 240Hz. No longer forced to choose between high resolution or high refresh rates when gaming or consuming media, with the Zephyrus Duo 16, you can have the best of both worlds with a single machine.
Upgraded Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal
Powerful components like the CPU need a thermal interface material to transfer their heat to the cooling system. Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme improves upon standard thermal pastes with 17X higher thermal conductivity, resulting in up to 15°C cooler CPU temperatures. Used exclusively by ROG, this indium and galium compound offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop. And unlike typical pastes, liquid metal will also never dry out, improving long term stability.
0dB Ambient Cooling, Zero Distractions
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Ambient Cooling. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
Dual Displays. One Device.
The Zephyrus Duo 16 really shows its versatility when you take it on the go. The built-in secondary display means that you always have a second screen available, while the 90Wh battery and USB Type-C™ charging can keep you powering through work all day long. An IR camera with Windows Hello support makes unlocking the machine a breeze.
An infrared camera ensures seamless unlocking with Windows Hello support, even in low light conditions.
Wi-Fi 6E provides a rock solid connection even in congested networks with multiple devices.
Studio Quality Audio
Enjoy studio quality audio from the six speaker soundstage with dual force-canceling woofers. With Dolby Atmos® support, the system can recreate a virtual 5.1.2 channel surround soundstage for incredibly immersive content. Three microphones give you incredible flexibility when joining calls or recording audio, bolstered by Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation that filters incoming and outgoing audio. Enjoy crystal clear voice chat even in noisy environments.
The Key To Victory
The Zephyrus Duo 16 sacrifices nothing. Utilizing NumberPad technology, the trackpad doubles as a full number pad to maximize space on the keyboard deck. N-key rollover ensures that each keypress is independently registered, giving you flexibility in game for complicated combos or accuracy for quick typing. A long 1.7mm key travel makes the Zephyrus Duo 16 very comfortable to type on, minimizing accidental keypresses as well. Per-key RGB and Aura Sync integration allows for robust preset and custom lighting patterns via Armoury Crate.
Replace. Refit. Rearm.
Upgradeability is key to keeping your machine running well for years to come—and the Zephyrus Duo allows you to upgrade both the RAM and storage to extend its lifespan. A special pop-open screw pushes the bottom of the chassis away from the laptop as it’s loosened. The hooks holding those edges together are smaller and stronger than before to make lifting off the panel easy. The Zephyrus Duo has dual SO-DIMMs and allows for future RAM upgrades. Both M.2 SSD slots are also accessible and expandable.
Connect to all of your devices with a robust selection of I/O. A pair of USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports offer DisplayPort™ 1.4a, with power delivery support on one and G-Sync on the other. Two additional USB 3.2 Gen 2 round out connectivity for your peripherals. Enjoy HDMI 2.1 support for an external display, as well as a 2.5G ethernet port, dedicated microSD card reader, and an audio combo jack. Dongles begone!
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customize Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles.
*Interface may vary by version.
Screen Xpert software allows for seamless navigation between your primary display and ScreenPad Plus™ secondary display. It enables drag and drop, touchscreen controls, and a bevy of other intuitive tools to optimize your experience.
