ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS S (GX531)
The Asus ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) is a power packed laptop that definitely deserves a closer look. Our review unit faced some performance issues, despite which, it was able to maintain impressive frame-rates in games. We wish it had better construction for the display panel, but in terms of performance, the Zephyrus S leaves little room for complaint.
ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS S (GX531): DETAILED REVIEW
The Asus ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) is a 15” gaming laptop, which Asus claims is the thinnest 15-inch gaming machine right now. It sits less than an inch thick and measures 2.1 kilograms, which really isn’t a lot when you think about it. It packs that signature “Aero Active” hinge, where the bottom opens up by a few millimeters when the laptop is open, all to aid in better air flow. Seeing how the GX531 packs an Nvidia RTX 2070 with the Max-Q design, this machine will definitely need the extra cooling. We’ve had the laptop in our labs for some days now and after having put it through a bunch of tests, we finally know whether to recommend the laptop or not. Short answer, it’s not simple. For the long answer, read on.
