    ASUS lifted the lid on its new updated Zephyrus G15. Designed for gaming, the ROG Zephyrus G15 includes multiple configurations, with a 15.6" screen with either a 1080p 144 Hz IPS or 1440p 165 Hz panel AMD's next-generation Ryzen mobile processor.

    ASUS has updated ROG Zephyrus G15 with some notable features, including a new 90 Wh battery with a 200 W AC charger. Still, it can be used with its 100 W Type-C charging adapter, which is available separately. ASUS advertises a 10-hour battery life. In terms of size, the ROG Zephrus has a depth of 19.9 mm and weighs just 1.9 KG, which is quite svelte for a gaming notebook.

    The ASUS ROG Zephyrus can be had with up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 SDAM, with AMD's upcoming next-generation Ryzen Mobile processors, and NVIDIA's next-generation RTX mobile graphics. Storage options include either a 512 GB or 1 TB NVMe based PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 drive, with a choice between a 1080p 144 Hz IPS or 1440p 165 Hz with 100% DCIP-3 color reproduction and up to 400 nits of brightness.

    There are plenty of connections, including two USB 3.2 G2 Type-C, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, a DisplayPort 1.4, and HDMI 2.0b video output pairing, as well as a single 3.5 mm combo port and an RJ45 port with an unspecific networking controller. ASUS does, however, include a Wi-Fi 6 capable interface with support for BT 5.0 devices. Built into the G15 is a trio of microphones with three modes (Cardioid, Omni, and Stereo), six integrated speakers, with a 20% bigger touchpad than the Zephyrus 2020 G15 model.

    Best Buy model looks like a great deal

    CPUs range from AMD 4800HS with RTX 3060 for low end up to AMD 4900HS with RTX 3080.
    No word if these are MAX Q GPU’s but it’s very likely.

    35.5 x 24.3 x 1.99 ~ 1.99 cm

    I'm looking forward to this one. I would like to get the 3080 model but I don't want white, plus it's $700 more.

    If rumors are true that we can expect RTX 2080 S mobile then thats still a pretty significant boost from last gens RTX 2070 and perfect for 1440p gaming.
    Yeah I’d love to have the RTX 3080 model too but not sure if we can justify it being $700 better than the RTX 3070......yet, but time will tell.

    Yes!
    Very excited for this model , will you sell them on your site ?

    Offcourse! I might even grab one myself. Small little beast with insane battery life and thermals plus AMD CPU so no Intel Spectre/Meltdown performance loss

    Yea that $700-800 surcharge for a 3080 pushes me towards a 3070. I’m purchasing the Asus Zephyrus Duo 15 SE 3070 version. The 3080 is $800 more for the card and 1 extra TB. If the previous generation (20 series) holds true, your looking at a 10% difference in power.

    Do you know what timeframe the Zephyrus G15 will be coming? Have been stalking your website to preorder it for a while lol. Thanks in advance!

    Also, this laptop single-handedly revitalizes my interest in laptops again. Haven't logged on to this account for years lol.

    Confirmed this morning the best buy variant has a glass track pad which isn't mentioned on best buys website but I wanted to be sure since the bestbuy variant is also not on asus website.

    AND

    It ships with windows 10 pro apparently. Also not really clear on bestBuys website.

    According to the best buy rep i spoke too.

    And they should also be arriving day of release via shipping, so they'll ship before release day apparently.

    Can post chat transcripts if people want.

    Can't wait to see if its a nice samsung ssd or some trash 660p

    Nice if true but going by past experience most BB reps have no clue what they are talking about and just tell you what you want to hear.
