Games, applications, and large files load at warp speed on the NVM Express® (NVMe®) SSD. ROG HyperDrive storage uses up to four PCI Express® (PCIe®) lanes to achieve amazing throughput. Up to 1TB of storage leaves loads of space to install larger content creation applications and all the games you might want to play, with plenty of room left for your professional portfolio.
NVME PCIE GEN3 X 2
Zephyrus S uses DDR4 memory optimized for high speed and low power consumption. The dual-channel config is clocked at 2666MHz, yielding an 11% performance increase over 2400MHz RAM. With up to 24GB under the hood, there's enough RAM to multitask while gaming.
Ultra-slim laptops leave less breathing room for cooling, so the unique ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) expands to help Zephyrus S sustain top performance for gaming and other heavy loads. Lifting the lid opens a large intake that increases airflow by up to 32% compared to typical designs. Anti-dust tunnels keep the heatsinks clean to preserve cooling efficiency and system stability over time.
83 blades each
Slim chassis leave limited space for airflow, which can compromise performance for marathon gaming sessions, so our innovative Active Aerodynamic System opens a 5mm vent that helps increase airflow by 22%. Dual 12V fans draw cool air in from the expanding intake in the base and from vents perforating the panel above the keyboard. Exhaust is pumped through four outlets in the edges of the chassis, each one shaped to separate warm outflow from the layer of cool air flowing into the AAS.
Five heatpipes snake beneath the surface to pull heat away from not only the CPU and GPU, but also the circuitry supplying them with power. This design keeps the power components under 80°C, which helps improve long-term reliability. The CPU and GPU connect to both shared and dedicated heatsinks to ensure efficient cooling for any workload.
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks in the flanks. Each one is lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm, allowing higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. There are 250 heatsink fins totaling 110,000mm2 of surface area, and the ones on the sides are angled slightly toward the back to direct warm air away from your mousing hand.
Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation, so our engineers designed a special anti-dust tunnel that catches and channels particles outside the chassis to prevent them from collecting on the fins. This self-cleaning system helps ensure consistent cooling performance, which improves long-term stability and reliability.
Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of the n-Blade fans to maximize airflow. The carefully shaped aluminum intake shrouds use curved edges and raised guides to help the fans draw in more air. Once inside, it's blasted toward the heatsinks by liquid-crystal-polymer blades that are 33% thinner than conventional designs yet still strong enough to spin at high RPMs. The Zephyrus S matches our highest blade density with 83 per fan, improving airflow by up to 15%.
Gaming laptops are versatile enough to tackle a range of tasks, but requirements vary wildly, so Intelligent Cooling adapts accordingly. It automatically switches between operating modes that optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed, Balanced mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment.
The forward keyboard position lowers surface temperatures on the desktop-style layout, so you can game in comfort for hours. Customize per-key RGB backlighting for different games and workflows, and match colors and effects with compatible peripherals using Aura Sync. Illumination extends to a unique volume roller positioned for quick adjustment and a glowing numpad that appears on the touchpad.
Smart amplifier tech keeps the speakers within thermal and excursion limits when you spin the volume wheel, so you can turn it up without harming the cones. The amplified output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear enemies on the battlefield, dialog in videos, and subtleties of your productivity soundtrack. Plug in a headset for immersion, and go deeper with virtual surround sound.
Clever software lets Zephyrus S simulate surround-sound environments for stereo headsets, putting you right in the middle of the action. This versatile capability works with not only analog cans, but also USB and VR headsets that typically don't work with virtual surround sound.
Surround virtualization is one of several audio effects available through Sonic Studio III, which also lets you tune the output manually. It's loaded with features for streaming and recording, including automatic volume stabilization for your voice, plus noise and echo cancelation that filter out unwanted background sounds.
USB Power Delivery supports secondary charging from portable power packs, so you don't have to fight for a socket when the battery gets low. Fast-charging support reverses the direction, using up to 3A to quickly rejuvenate smartphones and other devices. If you're not loading the CPU or discrete GPU with intensive tasks, you can use a smaller adapter up to 65W that lightens your load on the road.
