Even though Asus has not yet announced this, the slim Zephyrus M gaming laptops will get updated with Comet Lake-H CPUs as suggested by a product description spotted in the Icecat database. The upgraded models will most likely come equipped with the refreshed RTX 2070 GPUs, as well.

The latest Comet Lake-H mobility CPUs from Intel will soon be available for the Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502 lineup. There is no official announcement as of yet, but a particular Zephyrus M GU50202W-AZ081T model has already been spotted in the Icecat product catalog.

From what we can see in the catalog description, Asus will be keeping the same ultraslim magnesium-aluminium alloy chassis that is 18.9 mm thin and weighs 1.9 kg. The GU50202W-AZ081T model comes with a Core i7-10750H hexa-core / 12-thread CPU coupled with 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (expandable to 32 GB), and integrates a 1 TB NVMe SSD. The discrete graphics side is covered by an RTX 2070 GPU (possibly the refreshed version launched with the Super lineup).

Other noteworthy features include:

  • 15.6-inch slim bezel 1080p IPS display with sRGB color gamut, 240 Hz refresh rate and 3 ms grey-to-grey response time
  • Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.1
  • ESS Sabre Audio DAC
  • Intelligent cooling system with self-cleaning thermal module
  • Nvidia Optimus for improved battery life
  • Port selection: 1x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 1x Thunderbolt 3, GbE jack, HDMI 2.0 output, headphones + mic jacks

The Icecat database does not disclose any pricing info, but we suspect this model will soon be available for US$1,500, which is the price for the current i7-9750H model.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
