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 stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
