ROG Zephyrus G14, the Most Powerful Gaming Laptop
ASUS has hit the gaming laptop market again with its newest innovative product, the ROG Zephyrus G14. Shown with a 14-inch screen and a compact and lightweight body, ROG Zephyrus G14 is claimed to be the most compact and powerful laptop in the world. How did he get that nickname? The adoption of the latest AMD Ryzen Mobile 4000 series processors is one answer.
The processor, codenamed Renoir, is not just a new product, but comes with the latest Zen 2 architecture built on 7nm FinFET processing. This means that the Ryzen Mobile 4000 series processors use transistors that are smaller in size than previous generation laptop processors.
The use of these small transistors makes ROG Zephyrus G14 appear with much better performance and lower power consumption. This is also what makes this latest gaming laptop from ASUS able to appear with a very compact body, far from being considered a large and heavy traditional gaming laptop.
Not Just for Gamers
One of the things that distinguishes the ROG Zephyrus G14 from other ROG Zephyrus series laptops, even from other gaming laptops, is the design. This laptop comes with a minimalist and futuristic design, making it not only usable as a machine for playing games at home.
ROG Zephyrus G14 comes in two color options. Moonlight White has a look with an elegant white accent for those who want to look different anywhere. While Eclipse Gray comes with elegant dark color accents for users who prefer the look of a fierce classic gaming laptop.
ASUS placed the ROG logo which was originally in the middle of the back of the screen to the lower left corner. The logo is deliberately presented so that the ROG Zephyrus G14 does not lose its identity as part of the ROG family but still maintains its minimalist design. On the back of the screen there is also a small hole that is arranged and divides the back of the screen in half diagonally. Minimalist design like it’s never been used on any gaming laptop.
In terms of size, ROG Zephyrus G14 is also not like other gaming laptops. It carries a 14-inch screen that is rarely used on gaming laptops, and weighs under 2 kg (1.6 kg to be precise) which is also rarely found in a gaming laptop that has premium specifications.
ROG Zephyrus G14 also has a very compact body that can even compete with mainstream ultrathin laptops. Its thickness is only 1.79 cm, and comes with dimensions of 32.4 x 22.4 cm. This means, ROG Zephyrus G14 is very easy to carry around and can even fit into a sling bag like a mainstream laptop.
Reflecting on the design it carries, the ROG Zephyrus G14 is not only aimed at gamers but also those who need a powerful laptop in their daily activities. The minimalist and low profile design on the ROG Zephyrus G14 not only keeps users mobile, but also makes them suitable for use in work environments such as when conducting meetings in the office.

Equipped with the best features
As a premium gaming laptop labeled Republic of Gamers, ROG Zephyrus G14 has certainly been equipped with the best features in its class. The features that are carried are not only focused on gaming, but also daily productivity. The following is a list of features available on ROG Zephyrus G14:
Screens for Gaming and Content Creation
ROG Zephyrus G14 comes with a 14-inch screen designed for gaming needs. For this reason, the panel is capable of presenting a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The animation display in the game will also be smoother because the screen can display a high framerate.
The ability to display a high framerate is very important for gamers, especially those who like to play action games. This is because a high framerate will make every action appear better, making gamers react faster.
For those of you who do more content creation and are more concerned with screen resolution, ASUS also provides a ROG Zephyrus G14 variant with a WQHD resolution screen. Unlike gamers, content creators are more concerned with high-resolution screens to process content optimally.
In both the high refresh rate and high resolution variants, the ROG Zephyrus G14 display has been calibrated for color accuracy and is certified PANTONE Validated Display.
More Flexibility thanks to Full Port
ROG Zephyrus G14 is equipped with two USB Type-C ports, one of which supports the Power Delivery feature. This means that you can recharge this gaming laptop battery using a charger adapter with a power of up to 65W, which is certainly smaller than the 180W charger adapter that comes with this laptop. It should be noted that the maximum performance of ROG Zephyrus G14 can only be presented when connected to a 180W charger adapter.
Besides being able to charge, the USB Type-C port on the ROG Zephyrus G14 also supports display output. Any monitor that supports DisplayPort 1.4 can be connected to this laptop via the USB Type-C port. Coupled with an HDMI 2.0b port, this laptop can be connected to two 4K resolution monitors at once.
ROG Zephyrus G14 has been equipped with the latest WiFi 6 (Gig+) module or better known as 802.11ax. WiFi 6 has a higher data transfer rate than WiFi 5 (802.11ac), which is up to 2.4Gbps. WiFi 6 ensures ROG Zephyrus G14 can still be connected with the best signal quality and speed in its class.
The Fastest 14-inch Gaming Laptop
ROG Zephyrus G14 is powered by the AMD Ryzen 4000 Mobile Series processor which uses the latest “Zen 2” architecture and uses the 7nm fabrication method. The latest series processors not only come with new architectures and features, but also offer more cores and threads. Thanks to processors up to Ryzen 9 4900HS, ROG Zephyrus G14 is the first ultra-thin 14-inch laptop capable of coming with a processor configuration of up to 8 cores and 16 threads.
In terms of graphics, ROG Zephyrus G14 carries a graphics chip up to NVIDIA RTX 2060 which of course supports the latest graphics technologies such as real-time ray tracing. This laptop also supports RAM capacity of up to 24GB DDR4 type with a speed of 3200MHz, faster than most gaming laptops currently available. For storage, ROG Zephyrus G14 relies on a M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with a capacity of up to 1TB.
