The Asus Zephyrus G14 launched all the way back in March with a hefty price tag of 1900 USD. Ever since then, prices have been gradually dropping without needing to cut RAM or storage to meet the sale price. As of this writing, the laptop is down to $1200 USD to make it an excellent deal considering the hardware you're getting in a 14-inch form factor.

The Zephyrus G14 is notable for being one of the only laptops equipped with the octa-core Ryzen 9 4900HS. This particular CPU is faster than most Core i9 laptops that are over twice the size of the ultra-thin Zephyrus G14. If your workloads can benefit from all that CPU horsepower, then this small Asus laptop will surprise you.

A notable drawback to the Zephyrus G14 is its loud fan noise. Evidently, cramming all that processing power and GPU power into a small 14-inch laptop has its consequences. The spongy clickpad and lack of Thunderbolt 3 can also be an annoyance when traveling or docking. See our full take on the laptop here to learn more about all the pros and cons.

  • AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS CPU octa-core
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q w/ 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM
  • 16 GB RAM (8 GB soldered + 1x SODIMM)

  • 2x USB-C w/ DP and PD, 2x USB-A, HDMI 2.0b, Kensington Lock, 3.5mm combo audio
  • Wi-Fi 6
  • 76 Wh battery

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
