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.

Screen (5/5): The screen is bright, crisp, and quick. The 144 Hz. refresh rate and deep black level makes everything look beautiful.
GPU (5/5): The RTX 2080 handles everything I can throw at it and just keeps churning, but that's to be expected.
Cooling (5/5): Under full load, bench, and stress tests, the LT increases RPM fan speed as needed. Very quiet considering the amount of power it is using
Usefulness (5/5) : Both my GF and I travel and frequently work from home. This LT, in combination with my desktop, allows us to never miss out on productivity and fun. Whether it is gaming, rendering 3D images or any other CAD, it's a seamless transition.
I highly recommend!
Worthwhile mentions: All of the included ASUS software is extremely easy for the end user to navigate. Giving you as much control as you can handle.
While still being thin and light, it's easy to carry without breaking the back and still managing to pack a punch.
Asus seems to have solved the thermal throttling issue that would plague most other configurations with an i7-8750H and 2080 RTX MaxQ thanks to the unique cooling design that takes in air above and below the laptop surfaces, and ejecting heat to the back and sides.
Observation so far (a week into ownership) with regards to power management is that the 230 watt power brick or the power management system (windows firmware ) maybe inadequate for this particular configuration. While gaming on 1080p in Ultra settings on BF5 (ray tracing enabled), the battery will discharge below 90% and continue to do so even after quitting all intensive tasks and simply browsing or idling. The battery only begins to recharge after at least 30 minutes of idle activity. I do use a USB-c hub and plugging in an additional type C power source rectified the discharge problem.
The worst laptop battery I have ever seen in my life . I got no idea how laptop is going to be useable after a couple of years and when the battery degrades. Second iam left hand and the track pad is right sided so it's really annoying at frist but if you are a left handed you get used to it . 3rd would be upgradeable basically any possible upgrade is wasteful. As u only got 1 m.2 slot which you got your preinstalled ssd in and 1 memory slot which is occupied. Lastly there is no ethernet port and no included dongle (with a laptop with that price a 10$ dongle should be included)
Let's go to pro holy I do truly love this laptop
So with AC ON you would get max turbo number on cpu for prolonged time while being under full load( with turbo mode on ). And asus rog turbo boost for gpu makes it soo close to a desktop frequencies .as for performance I did my research ( before buying
it ) and found that asus rog laptops tends to run cooler than other thin gaming laptops while maintaining high frequencies ( while what iam about to say is a fact about all gaming laptops but when u turn turbo mode on its it's like a jet engine)
I do play some games and it does very well at it.
It's a shame the way they put this together. The large vent on bottom is good unless you want to use your 30” 4K monitor. If you shut the lid you close the vent. And it needs every bit of that air flow. Full visual settings and the laptop is cooking.
And memory why why why is one stick Soldered to the board. Do you have 8 gigs mounted and one spot with 8 gigs. You really can’t upgrade because you kill the dual channel.
I'm guessing you can change it the socketed 8 gigs with a 16 gig.
Well all in all its nice but not at the price.
But it's nice
Is there better for there money.
Really really look at all the other options
The laptop isn't a laptop lol you would fry your legs doing anything but surfing the internet.
It’s not what you would pull out in a plane
If your looking to be able to take a desktop with you this is it.
This is what this is A mobile desktop

Used the laptop for a week now, so here’s a short review. I have this model: Zephyrus S GX531GXR. It has an i7-9750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q, 16GB Ram, 60W battery, 240Hz, 1TB Samsung 981 NVME Drive. Never owned a “gaming” laptop, but owned other pretty powerful ones like a MacBook Pro 15 and Dell XPS 15 (I understand these are not the SAME category, but as a thin and light, there are some comparisons that can be made).
First, took a while to actually set everything up and update windows. The build quality is pretty good. The screen bends too easily and the bottom tray that extends the air flow is plastic, so just be aware if you’re picking up the laptop while its lid is open. You can open the lid with one finger *SLOW CLAP*. When you close the lid, there are magnets that keep it shut in your beg (Good job ASUS!).
The battery sucks, but I already knew that. I managed to squeeze about 3 hours while working on word docs and being connected to WiFi with screen brightness on about 90%. I needed it to be on 90% because the brightness of the 240hz display is lacking. Still good enough if you crank it up and disable those BS display power management tricks. Additionally, I have light bleed in all corners. I notice it on dark transition scenes in some games (like forza 4) and bootup, and I’m a bit of an OCD... And this laptop costs about $3,700 CAD… ANDDDD it will be used for photo and video editing, so the screen matters... But I decided that if I send it back to Amazon just because of the fact that I can see the screen bleed when I boot up the machine is kinda childish (I'm not saying YOU ARE childish if you decide to return, I just understand that nothing is or can be perfect). It literally does not affect my actual use at all (but to be transparent, wanted to mention that).
At first, I thought the speakers were lacking. But after I figured out the audio software, gotta say that the speakers are VERY decent, even when playing a game on turbo mode. So, my advice is take your time and figure the audio out before you’re officially disappointed. Try downloading the "Nahimic" app from the windows 10 store…
I said the display brightness is lacking. But if you’re using the laptop Indoors without 10 bright windows around you, even 80% brightness is more than enough. The display quality is great IMO. I’m planning to use this laptop for my photography and videography needs, and play games once a week maybe, so I really appreciate the calibrated display out of the box. At first, I was using the laptop with a dell u25h monitor, it’s 1440P. No problems here.
Not gonna mention the RGB stuff... It’s very customizable and if you don’t like it you can turn it off. The keyboard feels actually great to type on. I’m one of those people who happen to LIKE the keyboard setup, no joke. It’s great because it fits with my use (which is only on desks).
But I really became in love the moment I started using the laptop just by itself, without a monitor (just with a mouse). The 240Hz display is incredible to use for any task, not JUST for gaming. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but on this machine Windows 10 feels SO SMOOTH. Plugging in a 60Hz monitor now feels like Lag City for the first few minutes until your brain adjusts. So much so, that I restarted the laptop the first few times because I thought the intel drivers were messed up and made it lag (and I ensure that was not the case, was just my brain).
Listen, is it embarrassingly loud when you’re playing games or editing video? Yes. Can you adjust the fans for lower performance and less noise? Yep. So the way I have it is the following: Silent mode in public places. Balanced mode at home for general stuff (or editing/gaming while someone is in the room, a few feet away). Turbo mode at home when playing games and no one is around to be disturbed. I, for one, can appreciate the flexibility ASUS gives me here, because you don’t get that on almost any other high-end laptops. Are the components gonna fry themselves in a few years? I don’t know and I don’t think anyone knows. But until then, I can only speak to my short relatively positive experience with it.
