ROG Zephyrus S GX531
The ROG Zephyrus S is redefining ultra-slim gaming laptops yet again with innovative engineering to cool its 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and up to GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design, so you can immerse yourself in its no-compromise 144Hz/3ms display.
Up your Game with GeForce RTX
Powered by the NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the revolutionary RTX platform, RTX graphics cards bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading to your favorite ROG devices.
Silky-Smooth 144hz Display
Super-narrow bezels draw you deeper into the action on the 144Hz IPS-level display. The high refresh rate makes gameplay smoother and lowers input lag, while the 3ms gray-to-gray response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring.
Extra Gaming Features
Amp up your Audio
ROG Zephyrus S puts audio at the forefront with dual speakers aimed right at you. The resulting output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear every sound.
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity needed for gaming on the go. Type-C (USB-C) ports are available at USB 3.1 Gen 2 and Gen 1 speeds, while Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 2 and USB 2.0 ports are perfect for a gamepad and mouse.
Comprehensive Cooling Coverage
The Zephyrus S automatically adjusts fan speeds based on CPU and GPU temperatures, and you can quickly toggle between three modes with a convenient function shortcut. With upgraded 12v fans and anti-dust tunnels, the cooling system on the Zephyrus S is prepared to tackle the latest games with ease.
AURA SYNC Beyond the Keyboard
The AURA SYNC keyboard ensures precise input in the heat of battle with n-key rollover and up to 20 million keypress durability. You can customize the backlight colors and effects to suit your style, and another configurable RGB zone illuminates the AAS intake at the back for ambient lighting.

1. \\CPU is amazing\\ it blows my dell's i7-7700HQ out of the water. x700HQ has been a staple for years and who wouldve thought 8th gen intel has come so far. it does everything so buttery smooth in windows 10 and 6-cores (12 threads)
2. \\GPU is amazing\\
This is one of the thinnest laptop if not the thinnest that I have ever seen or used with these type of specs. GTX 1070 max P is definitely a powerful beast. It runs BF1 at max settings at 1080p perfectly fine, with G-Sync turned on
I would say at this point, built-in display limited at 1080p is becoming a let down
but matters not, I am going to test the limits of it via a USB-C thunderbolt to DisplayPort cable and hook it up to an AGON AG352UCG6 monitor and run it at 120Hz G-Sync and see how it does at 3440x1440
3D Mark11 yielded around 22K of score
most importantly is there is a switch for turning the dedicated graphics off, just using Intel that saves a lot of battery power if I am just doing a presentation on the go, it is nice they've thought of this instead of making a pure gaming machine (no laptop should be so single purposed)
3. \\Friggin fast SSD\\
I do graphics work and video editing work on this occassionally and it has kept up with loading Premier and transcoding the files very fast, thanks to the graphics card being utilized by Adobe. When transfering the large files, its kept up its paces too although I am not putting the drive to work nearly its advertised limits since I/O is still the limitation. There is a Dell thunderbolt 3 external SSD Drive out, I may buy that and test it out
I believe this SSD inside the ASUS is an iteration of the Samsung 970 EVO, definitely one of the fastest out there (except for the Pro)
the 1TB hybrid drive is no slouch either, enough to store some of the files (while the rest are on NAS), and hasnt been too much of a bottle beck
4. \\Clever chassis design\\
The chassis is pretty smart, since it has a piece on the bottom that pops open when I open the lid to a certain degree
this has allowed for cooler air to enter from the bottom and sides, especially useful as a tilt that helps with my typing too
This is particularly useful too when using on the lap or on the bed where bottom tends to get muffled with blankers or something soft
with about an hour of encoding, the cooling setup inside has kept the machine not too noisy, doing its job of efficiently cooling the GPU and CPU
the keyboard area has remained fairly cool, under 45C for most of the time
5. \\Decent screen\\
Screen and its bezels are the only partial let down of the machine
visually, the quality is great and i havent noticed any blurring or tearing with G-Sync turned on
color accuracy seems good enough for most graphics work although I still use an external monitor with higher DCI-P3 profile for video editing
I havent experienced much input lag or slow response time so things are peachy there
bezels though.... they are still large in a day and age where infinite edge displays and super narrow bezels are becoming common on $1300 laptops, yet this $2k machine is still rocking the thick arse bezels... what gives?
6. \\Fancy keyboard and lighting\\
There is some glow around the laptop and backlit keyboard is pretty colorful
I am not one for the rainbow scheme of color in my gaming laptop so ive set it to just red and dim for now
there are so many apps and settings that I havent gone deep enough to figure it all out yet
and that is one of the problems... too many apps and settings!
I suppose I am not geeky enough wanting to tinker with those all the time
7. \\Upcoming upgrades\\
Seeing how I am running close to the 16GB of RAM, I plan on adding another 16GB soon
I opened up the mem bay and it is a good sign that both slots are operable, while only one is occupied by the 1x16GB 2666, I will add another 16GB soon
Another upgrade is I plan on adding a thunderbolt 3 port hub that has more USB ports, displayport out (USB-C alt mode), gigabit ethernet
hard to find one that exactly matches my need so will need to do a bit more research (watch out for compatibility with 4K monitors)
The design of this laptop is outstanding, a beautiful piece to look at indeed.
The first thing i have checked is the display, sadly it does have light bleed but it is very minimal and not noticable at all. Only when you look for it.
Performance & Temps:
I was easily getting above 144 fps on Fortnite, with the balanced gaming mode with temps reaching at 80C max.
From 80 to 120 fps in dota ( high settings ) which reached max temp of 83 to 85 C.
Overall this laptop can tackle any game if you will accept the turbo mode fan noise.
This laptop have never throttled and the temps were always below 90C, the fan noise is quieter than what I have expected, and if you will wear a gaming headset with closed ear you wont hear it at all.
However sometimes you will get some fps fluctuations which can be fixed/minimised with GPU driver updates and using Vulkan support in Dota 2, if you prefer to avoid all that go for the 17 inch version which has G-Sync support.
The sound quality is ok id give it 7/10 its not bad seeing how thin the laptop is.
This keyboard is much better than any keyboard i have tried, so comfortable to type on and no spelling mistakes unlike desktop keyboards. And you wont feel any heat which is the best thing about this laptop design.
Sad that there is no thunderbolt 3 port, RJ45, however the laptop wifi card is so good that you don't need a RJ45 port, the connection is tested and theres no packet loss or stutter at all.
It can be extended easily with power saving mode up to 3 to 4 hours on browsing and normal use. However you will need to carry a charging brick with you everywhere or a 65W power adapter to charge it with USB C.
Overall id give this laptop 8.5 out of 10.
However If you have the money i recommend buying the 17 inch version just for that G sync panel, other than that this laptop is great and i have no regrets at all.
I will post photos later and include further details incase i notice anything.
Edit: temps mentioned above are for CPU, GPU temps were mostly below 65 C which is amazing.
Edit December 2019:
Thanks for the helpful votes!
One of the downsides I noticed about this laptop is the storage. Only up to 1TB of PCiE SSD and it is a hassle to install it. There is a video on YouTube on how to open up this laptop which helps. Laptop still running good though.
I gave it -1 star because it gets INSANELY hot unless you properly configure it for your games. ThrottleStop is your friend.
-1 star because, upon opening this morning... the casing for the hinge seriously just broke off. Nothing of note happened upon opening. I seriously just opened the lid and "POP" -- clean break into two difference pieces. It appears as though there was supposed to be some type of metal rod inserted inside of it to better anchor the plastic cap -- but mine doesn't have one. I am now left here debating if I should call them for a replacement due to this -- or simply superglue it back on. In either case, this never should have happened and has really left a bad taste in my mouth for any potential future purchase from ASUS as I continually hear issues about their QC.
Top reviews from other countries
Run cool* if only if repaste everything.
*1. very hot, over heat out of box! CPU will go up to 101 c degrees at 2.9 ghz all core with under volt -140mv. You cannot believe the horrible paste job done by Asus. (need to repaste everything plus under volt to reduce the CPU temperture to 86 c degrees with full speed all core 3.9ghz).
2. intel 660p 512gb nvme is cheap and slow.
3. fan will go very fast, very loud when gaming, sounds like you're sitting in air plane.
4. no thunderbolt 3.
5. Asus support know nothing, better fix everything by yourself.
6. only 1 m.2 nvme slot, 1 ram solt, another 8gb ram is fixed on board.
For the discounted price i got, i will give 4 stars.
Very bad coil wine when play games
The screen had very bad ips bleed, will show up when watching dark theme movie.
ottimo per la produtivita e giochi.
il peso totale e un po alto, i bordi sono un po troppo netti e a 90 gradi.
il pc e americano con layout usa.
molti problemi per utilizzare windows in italiano.
e capitato piu volte qualche difetto.
- quando si apre un menu di un sito dove c'è una finestra a scelta multipla,
per esempio citta: Roma - Milano ecc
esce da solo dalla selezione menù.
- a volte non va in sospensione quando si chiude lo schermo
- a volte quando si chiude lo schermo, il programma che era aperto rimane in funzione , ma si staccano le ventole, e dopo 2 ore in tali condizioni diventa rovente.
-la tastiera ha un layout dirrerente ma ci si abitua
- ergonomia bassa, proppi bordi sono a spigolo vivo
- giocando le ventole fanno un bel rumore
- autonomia batteria bassa 2.5 massimo 3 ore
- la mancanza del lettore schede SD e un po ridicola.
- presenza di un HD meccanico è obsoleta.
- in piu scalda hd
se serve un portatile ok.
ma con gli stessi soldi puoi assemblarti un desktop ottimo.
prossimo portatile sara incentrato sulla portabilità e meno sulle prestazioni.
I bought it for PUBG and its portability. Used to own a 2011 model of Alienware M17xR3, that was really heavy compared to this one.
I think the only concern I have is heating problem. Yes, the stock paste could be bad, I didn't change it though. I undervolted every core to 3.2x max and some other settings. Before undervolting, Medium-low settings on PUBG would brought the CPU temp to up to 80-85Celsius, after undervolting, it became around 75-80C max, which was not bad, considering that I didn't repaste it.
As for the speakers, I think they are not loud enough? I was watching Fed Up on this laptop and the voice was really not big enuf.... at least compared to Alienware. But for gaming I'd never not use a headset.... so this is nothing for me.
I'd recommend this laptop to those who'd want portability and ability to play almost all new major games on the market right now with at least medium settings and high fps.
