Product Description

ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501GI 1080 16GB 1TB Gaming Laptop


Ultra-slim gaming, redefined

ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG's persistent dedication to innovation. Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops, it has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080, a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor (Kaby Lake), an optional 120Hz wide-view display, and Windows 10 Pro. ROG slimmed the body to a mere 16.9-17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling performance thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System (AAS). The sleek chassis also includes an Aura RGB keyboard that will feel familiar to gamers who typically play on desktop PCs.


What Gamers Want

Ultimate Performance

Portability and Mobility

Long-time Gaming

Coolest Design & Show-off Time


ROG Zephyrus showcases the evolution of the ROG brand, with a revolutionary design finished in a new metal black color scheme; and it has received critical acclaim - winning the 2017 CES Innovation Award, Reddot Design Award, and Computex 2017 d&i Award


Ultra slim and sleek

ROG Zephyrus has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn't stop it from packing the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics. Specially designed hinge when open up, the bottom flexes to create more air flow space so our fan module can be slimmer and thinner


Active Aerodynamic System (AAS)

When the laptop is opened, a portion of the bottom flexes to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with our unique AeroAccelerator technology, this gap improves airflow by 32% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling


AAS incorporates a unique AeroAccelerator (AA) technology that increases the speed and efficiency of airflow through the laptop. It starts with the carefully shaped aluminum alloy shroud around the intake, which has curved edges and raised guides that channel more cool air into the fan. The fan blades are made of a special liquid crystal polymer (LCP) that lets us reduce the fan thickness by 33% and be able to add more fan blades up to 71pcs compared to traditional designs with only around 53pcs.


ROG Zephyrus allows gamers to enjoy the refresh rate up to 120Hz  to decimate lag and motion blur to have upper hand in all game titles such as AAA, MOBA, FPS, racers, and sports etc.
