ROG Zephyrus S sets the standard for ultra-slim Windows 10 Pro gaming laptops. Now it has bigger aspirations with a super-narrow-bezel 17-inch display in a chassis just 18.7mm thin. Zephyrus S GX701 is loaded with up to a GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU. Immerse in its 144Hz/3ms panel with Pantone®-validated colors, and use the ROG-exclusive GPU switch to change between G-SYNC™ for gaming and Optimus for battery life.
DESIGN - THE MOST COMPACT 17-INCH GAMING LAPTOP EVER
Immersing yourself in a larger display usually means lugging a larger laptop, but slim bezels and smart design make ROG Zephyrus S the smallest in its class. Easily carry it around town or across the world thanks to compact dimensions that put a 17-inch display in a 15-inch form factor. The sleek magnesium-alloy body fits inside standard bags* and is strong enough to stand up to everyday life.
DISPLAY - SPECTACULAR VISUALS MIX SPEED AND PRECISION
Slender 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 grey-to-grey response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring. Color accuracy is critical for content creators, so factory calibration and ProArt™ TruColor Technology deliver a Pantone® Validated palette.
Pantone® Color Validation
Precise colors are paramount for artists, designers, and other content creators who work and play on the same machine. That's why the display is carefully calibrated at the factory. ProArt™ TruColor Technology guarantees that each one meets stringent Pantone® Color Validation requirements for color accuracy.
QUICKLY SWITCH GEARS FOR WORK AND PLAY
Live a double life powered by the ROG-exclusive GPU switch. With just a few clicks, ROG Zephyrus S transitions between better gaming and longer battery life. G-SYNC mode synchronizes the GPU and display to deliver smoother gameplay with lower input lag and tear-free graphics, while Optimus mode selectively turns off the discrete GPU to save power with everyday desktop productivity and entertainment.
POTENT PERFORMANCE WITH NEXT-GEN GRAPHICS
Remarkably slim without sacrificing speed, ROG Zephyrus S harnesses the latest GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU to deliver desktop-like performance for hardcore gaming, serious creative work, and cutting-edge VR. The GPU enables photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. It boosts up to 1230MHz at 90W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6001MHz, and both can be overclocked. This powerful core is backed by up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM for heavy multitasking and a 1TB NVMe SSD for your game library and professional portfolio.
POWERFUL SIX-CORE CPU
Zephyrus S features the latest Intel® Core™ i7 -9750H. With six cores and 12 threads via Hyper-Threading, it has 50% more cores than the last generation. There’s more power for serious work and heavy multitasking, plus effortless gaming with simultaneous recording and live-streaming. Intel Speed Shift and Turbo Boost balance performance and efficiency to deliver high speed and long battery life.
TURING-POWERED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY
Available with up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ with Max-Q Design graphics, ROG Zephyrus S is on the leading edge of GPU technology. The revolutionary NVIDIA Turing™ architecture mixes traditional CUDA cores for programmable shading with RT cores for ray tracing and Tensor cores for AI. Together, they enable 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 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.
DUAL-CHANNEL DDR4 MEMORY
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.
COOLING - SMARTER COOLING FOR FASTER PERFORMANCE
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.
COMPREHENSIVE COOLING COVERAGE
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.
MORE ULTRA-THIN FINS
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.
SELF-CLEANING COOLING SYSTEM
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.
MORE BLADES INCREASE AIRFLOW
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%.
AAS BREATHES DEEPER
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.
THE RIGHT MODE FOR THE MOMENT
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.
KEYBOARD - CUSTOMIZE AND COORDINATE COLORS
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.
AUDIO - INCREDIBLE SOUND POWERED BY SMARTAMP
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.
USB PD - TAP INTO TYPE-C CHARGING
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.
CONNECTIVITY - COMPREHENSIVE CONNECTIVITY
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity needed for gaming and working on the go. Alongside the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 and Power Delivery, one Type-A port offers Gen 2 connectivity for devices that can keep up. Another Type-C™ (USB-C™) port is available at USB 3.1 Gen 1 speed, while additional Type-A ports are perfect for a gamepad, mouse, or USB storage. HDMI 2.0 supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
SOFTWARE - 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 easily 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.
