The ROG Zephyrus G14 is one of the best laptops we’ve seen in 2020, thanks in part to its exclusive Ryzen 9 4900HS processor. Asus has updated the Zephyrus G14 (plus its older brother, the Zephyrus G15) with the latest chips from AMD and Nvidia.
In addition to the chip upgrades, both models have new display options. The G14 is now available with a 144Hz panel. There is also a 2K 120Hz model, which according to Asus covers the full color range DCI-P3. The G15 has a 165Hz QHD display, also with 100 percent DCIP-3 coverage.
Asus has also added new animations to its Anime Matrix (the grid of LED lights that cover the lid of the G1
The G15 received a slight redesign. It is inherited from the G14’s ErgoLift hinge, which lifts the keyboard slightly off the ground to improve cooling (and conveniently hide part of the bottom panel). It also has a larger touchpad than its predecessor – 20 percent larger to be exact. Asus also added an extra microphone (there were two, and now there are three).
Both models have larger batteries than 90 Wh (and the G14’s battery life was already pretty good). Asus says you’ll get more than 10 hours to charge from the G15. Both feature enhanced speakers with brand new Dolby Atmos software and two-way AI noise reduction. There are no webcams to see yet.
The G14 and G15 will be available in the first quarter of 2021. Asus has not yet announced whether prices will change. Current models start at $ 1,049.
