ROG ZEPHYRUS S GX531
SLIM YET MIGHTY
After redefining ultra-slim gaming laptops with the original Zephyrus, ROG gets hardcore gaming to an even thinner design framed by super-narrow bezels. ROG Zephyrus S uses revolutionary engineering to cool its GeForce RTX™ 2080 and 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, so you can immerse yourself in its no-compromise 144Hz/3ms display.
THE NEW STANDARD FOR
Clever design and expert craftsmanship are need to put high-end chips into the slimmest gaming laptop ever. At just 15.35~16.15mm thin with a GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor, ROG Zephyrus S is portable but almighty enough for life on the go. In one fluid motion of hidden scissor-door hinges, it turns from svelte sidekick to gaming powerhouse.
FINISHED TO PERFECTION
The metal body is a symphony of clean lines and refined design. Brush strokes slash the lid, diamond cuts chamfer the edges, and the iconic logo glows ROG red. Two-stage anodizing contrasts stealthy surfaces with gleaming accents, echoing distinctive Zephyrus styling that looks as cutting-edge as the hardware inside.
SUPER NARROW BEZELS
While the slender bezels around the display melt away, they also make the chassis more compact. Zephyrus S is 19mm narrower than its predecessor despite having the same 15.6” screen size. The smaller footprint fits more comfortably into crowded bags and tight spaces, and it also leaves room for your mousing hand.
SHRINKING BEZELS WITHOUT SACRIFICING SPEED
Super-narrow bezels draw you deeper into the action on the 144Hz IPS-level display. The high refresh rate makes gameplay smoother and reduce input lag, while the 3ms gray-to-gray response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring. With the full sRGB colour gamut and wide viewing angles, ROG Zephyrus S blends beauty and speed without compromise.

POTENT PERFORMANCE RIVALS DESKTOPS
Do not be fooled by its lithe body; ROG Zephyrus S has ample power for AAA games, VR experiences, and serious creative work. The six-core 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU offers desktop-like performance, while the all-new NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU allows for photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. The GPU boosts up to 1330MHz at 90W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6151MHz, and both can be overclocked. An NVMe SSD up to 1TB provides speedy storage for your growing game library and professional portfolio.
POWERFUL SIX-CORE CPU
Zephyrus S offers the latest Intel® Core™ i7 -8750H. Its six cores and 12 threads via Hyper-Threading provide 50% more cores than the last generation, enabling effortless gaming with simultaneous recording and live-streaming. Intel Speed Shift and Turbo Boost balance power and efficiency, pushing the processor up to 4GHz for quad-core loads and 3.9GHz with all six at full throttle.
TURING-POWERED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY
Available with up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics, ROG Zephyrus S is on the leading edge of GPU technology. The revolutionary NVIDIA Turing™ architecture combines traditional CUDA cores for programmable shading with RT cores for ray tracing and Tensor cores for AI. Together, they allow for more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in real time to make games more immersive.
HIGH-SPEED HYPERDRIVE STORAGE
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 incredible throughput. Up to 1TB of storage provides loads of space to install everything you might want to play, with plenty of room left for the rest of your life.
*PCIe configuration and performance varies by model and capacity. Check specifications for details.
DUAL-CHANNEL DDR4 MEMORY
Zephyrus S uses DDR4 memory ideal 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 is enough RAM to multitask while gaming.
COOL UNDER PRESSURE
The unique ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) expands to help Zephyrus S sustain high GPU clocks with demanding games. Lifting the lid opens a 5-mm intake that improves airflow by up to 22% compared to traditional designs. Anti-dust tunnels keep the four heatsinks clean to preserve cooling performance and system stability as the hours go up.
ROG Zephyrus S passes strict internal quality tests, including surviving multiple drops from a height of 76cm, so it’s tough enough to handle day-to-day hazards. It also meets demanding MIL-STD-810G standards for persisting vibration, shock, altitude, and extreme environmental conditions that would leave lesser laptops begging for mercy.
AURA SYNC BEYOND THE GAMING KEYBOARD
The keyboard makes sure precise input in the heat of battle, and it’s built to last. You can optimize the backlight colours and effects to suit your style, and another configurable RGB zone illuminates the AAS intake at the back. Aura Sync harmonizes lighting across compatible ROG mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your setup a cohesive look.
AMP UP YOUR AUDIO
ROG Zephyrus S puts audio at the forefront with dual speakers aimed right at you. Smart amplifier tech keeps them within thermal and excursion limits, so you can pump up the volume without hurting the cones. The concluding output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear every sound, and you can plug in a headset for even more immersion.
UNIFIED SYSTEM TUNING AND PERSONALIZATION
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting control to put essentials at your fingertips in a single utility. You can simply change settings for both and define up to four game profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles. These options are just the beginning for what will become an even more versatile tool.
* Interface may vary by version.
TAP INTO TYPE-C CHARGING*
USB Power Delivery allows the ROG Zephyrus S charge 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. You can do everyday work with a smaller 65W adapter that lightens your load on the road.
* USB Power Delivery is supported only on the GX531GX, GX531GW, GX531GV and GX531GM. Power pack and 65W adapter sold separately.
* Charging time is based on laptop at idle.
* Unless otherwise stated, performance figures are based on theoretical performance. Actual figures may vary in real-world situations.
CONNECT ALL YOUR DEVICES
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity required 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 ideal for a gamepad and mouse. HDMI 2.0b at the back supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
