The ROG Zephyrus G14 2021 completes ASUS Republic of Gamers’ AMD Ryzen 5000 lineup for 2021. Officially landed in the Philippines on March 15, the Zephyrus G14 2021 comes equipped with up to a Ryzen 9 5900HS CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. This laptop promises users new power and performance.
The 2021 version is the highly anticipated follow-up to last year’s most awarded and most loved gaming laptop, the ROG Zephyrus G14. Here we take a look at the new-gen–and see what has remained the same and what has been upgraded in terms of specs and features.
Design & Construction
The new ROG laptop powers on-the-go users with mobility and performance. This unit is easy to carry anywhere and anytime–it is only 17.9mm thick and 1.7kg in weight.
The ROG Zephyrus G14 2021 also wows with its subtle but very stylish design. This computer arrives in two colorways–Moonlight White or Eclipse Gray. Both colors look clean and professional, making it easy to style with or add to your daily arsenal. It also flaunts a new Holographic Prismatic Effect, which elevates the laptop’s overall aesthetic.
The optional AniMe Matrix display returns to the 2021 version for deeper personalization. With it, users can customize graphics, animations, and other effects across more than a thousand mini-LEDs embedded on the lid. It also comes with the newest member of the ROG Worldview family, OMNI. OMNI acts as the user’s virtual pet.
Meanwhile, the backlit chiclet keyboard allows users to work or play even in the dark or low light.
Display & Multimedia
This ROG machine boasts a 14-inch display that has up to 1440p WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. It uses a panel with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Additionally, the screen has 100% DCIP-3 coverage and Pantone Validation. All these make the Zephyrus G14 an ideal partner for both gamers and content creators.
To complement the display, the laptop uses Dolby Atmos Audio quad speakers–a feature that was already available in the previous iteration of this model. The Zephyrus G14 also sports a new Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation feature. This allows disruption-free listening, calling, or recording.
The ROG Zephyrus G14 2021 looks to be the most powerful 14-inch gaming laptop in the world as it comes with next-generation upgrades under the hood. For the CPU, users can get up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor. For the graphics card, there’s an option for up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 unit.
The laptop also comes equipped with up to 32GB 32000mHz RAM for memory. Users can get up to 1TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD for storage. These specs combined promise extremely potent performance at all times.
Out of the box, this computer already runs Windows 10 Pro. It is powered by a 4-cell Li-ion battery that promises up to 76WHrs.
