ASUS has announced a noteworthy upgrade to the ROG Zephyrus G14, one of the 2020s most popular gaming laptops with AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs, with up to a 144 Hz and 1440p display, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-P GPU. After all that it, The ROG Zephyrus G14 still weighs just 1.6 kg, though.
The 14-inch gaming laptop has upgraded from Ryzen 4000 series APUs to AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 series. Also, ASUS has adopted NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture and has upgraded the ROG Zephyrus G14 to the GeForce RTX 3060. Another notable change is that ASUS has equipped the machine with the Max-P version of the GeForce RTX 3060, which should represent a significant performance increase from the GeForce RTX 2060- Max-Q found in last year’s model.
The CPU and GPU in the ROG Zephyrus G14 does the rest of the device a disservice although. The new model retains its predecessor’s chassis, which means that its weight will be around 1.6 kg with a smaller footprint than that of most other gaming laptops.
Further, there will be improved display options on the 1080p and 120 Hz panels that ASUS also offered last year. According to ASUS, the new ROG Zephyrus G14 will be available with a 1440p and 120 Hz display in only a few markets, but most countries will receive a 1440p and 144 Hz one, instead. ASUS is yet to confirm when and where it plans to release the ROG Zephyrus G14 and its other details.
