Asus has completely refreshed its laptop line for CES 2023, introducing ROG flagship brands such as Flow, Zephyrus and Strix models, as well as affordable TUF gaming laptops. Quite a few new and upgraded laptops that use a mix of the latest silicon from Intel, AMD and Nvidia. (Often, however, Asus only mentions “next-generation” GPUs and processors in press briefings and materials.) Nearly all laptops also feature MUX switches to keep battery on the go. prolongs life. game.
The biggest announcement is literally Asus making its ROG Strix line up to 16 and 18 inches with Intel and Nvidia models: Strix Scar 16/18 and Strix G16/18. and Intel Core processors with Nvidia RTX GPUs.
The Scar series uses up to 64GB of DDR5-4800 RAM and up to 4TB of storage, using two PCIe SSDs in RAID 0. The G-series Strix, on the other hand, uses up to 32GB of RAM and a 2TB PCIe SSD, with additional slots for storage. Upgrade. Both are moving to a 16:10 aspect ratio. Scars gets the option of Asus’ “Nebula HDR” and a Mini-LED QHD 240 Hz screen with 1,100 nits of peak brightness, while the Strix G laptop ditches HDR for a 500 nits QHD 240 Hz Nebula use the display.
The 18-inch front also has an RGB light bar.
The Strix Scar 17 and G17 are still present as options for next-generation AMD systems with Nvidia GeForce graphics. 16:9 is not dead yet.
The Zephyrus series includes the new Duo 16 and updates to the G14, G16 and M16.
The new Duo is an AMD/Nvidia system ready for next-gen Ryzen 9 and next-gen RTX GPUs. The top screen will be a Mini-LED QHD 240 Hz display with 1,152 dimming zones. It has an FHD IR camera and 6 speakers.
The M16 is Asus’ first gaming laptop with an animated matrix display on the cover that can display customizable images and messages. It uses next-gen Intel Core H-series processors and next-gen his Nvidia GeForce RTX GPU, with a maximum TGP of 145W (up from his 120W on the 2022 model). This is made possible in part by liquid metal and triple fans with heatsinks that span the width of the laptop.The ROG Nebula HDR display is 16:10 and features up to QHD+ resolutions and a 240 Hz refresh rate. increase.
A darling of the last few years, Asus’ ROG Zephyrus G14 remains in AMD/Nvidia’s combination train and is powered by a Ryzen 9 CPU. The display is 16:10, 165 Hz and has a screen-to-body ratio of 91%. This system allows his TGP of up to 125W with dynamic boost and goes from DDR4 to DDR5. The vapor chamber covers his 48% of the mainboard.
The 16 inch uses the Intel H series. Here, Asus promises up to 120W of GPU power and up to 48GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (it’s amazing to see old RAM here). The system will also feature six speakers and a 16:10, QHD+ 240 Hz display.
Asus’ Flow series once again includes the Z13 tablet, along with the X13 and X16 2-in-1 laptops. The XG Mobile eGPU has been updated to use the new Nvidia GeForce RTX GPUs. They all use next-generation Intel H-series processors.
