CES 2020: ASUS unveils Zephyrus G14 and Ryzen-powered TUF Gaming laptops
ASUS is having a busy day at CES 2020. In the afternoon it announced the Zephyrus G14 from its ASUS ROG brand and new Ryzen-powered TUF Gaming laptops, in addition to the company’s morning announcements of new laptop and desktop computers.
The Zephyrus G14 brings premium innovations to a wider audience with an ultra-slim form factor at just 17.9mm thin and 1.6kg, all without compromising performance. The Zephyrus G14 gaming notebook features RTX graphics for high frame rates when playing popular games, and also lets gamers choose between high refresh or high resolution for their display; the choice of 120Hz refresh rate or WQHD resolution panels allows users to optimize for gaming or creating content. And to deliver nonstop speed, this new laptop is equipped with a ROG-exclusive 4th generation AMD Ryzen processor that has eight cores and 16 threads in a more energy-efficient 35W power envelope.
Making the G14 extra portable are up to 10 hours of battery life, thanks to the ability to charge from compatible Type-C power packs. And the G14 is fine to look at, both aesthetically with subtle styling in Moonlight White or Eclipse Gray, and functionally, with the optional AniMe Matrix display that deepens personalization, enabling users to show custom graphics, animations and other effects across more than a thousand mini LEDs embedded in the lid.
The Zephyrus G14 will be available later in 2020.
ASUS TUF Gaming laptops are known for delivering high performance while standing up to the rigors of life on the go. At CES 2020, ASUS is introducing an all-new TUF Gaming family of laptops focused on further gains in performance, ruggedness and versatility.
The 15-inch TUF Gaming A15 and F15, along with their 17-inch A17 and F17 siblings, deliver an unprecedented experience for the price. Key to the experience is potent processing power, thanks to a choice between 4th Gen AMD Ryzen Mobile CPUs and upcoming 10th Gen Intel Core processors. NVIDIA Turing-based GPUs up to the GeForce RTX 2060 feed frames into fast displays that refresh at up to 144Hz and use AMD FreeSync technology to ensure smoother, tear-free gaming across a wide range of titles.
Gamers who plan to spend long hours away from an electrical outlet can choose from bigger battery options – despite the smaller size of the units – ranging up to 90Whr, while the compact chassis make the new laptops easy to carry, and rugged, too, with updated military-grade durability testing demonstrating their ability to survive in the field.
