New ROG gaming laptops for 2020 pair ultraslim designs with unstoppable performance

ROG Zephyrus Duo 15

The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 integrates the innovative ROG ScreenPad Plus, a secondary touchscreen for innovative multitasking that brings gaming, streaming, working, and chatting together in one portable device. The 14.1-inch 4K (3840 x 1100) IPS ROG ScreenPad Plus provides a second-monitor style interaction or a dramatic continuation of the primary screen.

As the lid opens, a hinge tilts the secondary display up at a 13-degree angle for viewing comfort and draws cool air from above. This Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) arrangement means that the Zephyrus Duo can house powerful components in a slender chassis, including a 10th Gen Intel Core i9 processor and the trailblazing NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card.

The Zephyrus Duo ships with two high-end display options: a lightning-fast 300 Hz FHD display or a 4K UHD display with 100% Adobe RGB coverage for people who split their time between AAA gaming and content creation. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology keeps gaming visuals smooth and tear-free, while ROG GPU Switch technology enables swapping between G-SYNC and NVIDIA’s battery-saving Optimus mode.

With its one-of-a-kind secondary display, premium components, and sleek design, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 takes the lead on all ROG Zephyrus laptops. From its thin all-metal chassis to its powerful Thunderbolt 3 port, from its RAID 0 storage array to its top-of-the-line displays, this laptop embodies ROG’s ruthless drive for excellence.

Zephyrus S17 also features a full desktop-style keyboard with RGB LED backlighting, a touchpad that also functions as a numeric keypad, and an integrated volume roller with backlight brightness. System thermals benefit from a unique AAS cooling solution that opens a large intake vent beneath the system when the lid is raised.
