Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 2024 review - The gaming/multimedia laptop with Ryzen 8000 and G-Sync OLED

The biggest competitor to Apple's MacBook Pro 14? The new ROG Zephyrus G14 hasn't set its focus on maximum performance anymore—instead, Asus aims to speak to a larger audience with the help of the laptop's slimmer and more compact aluminum case. The result is an astounding gaming/multimedia hybrid that offers great performance and only features a handful of weaknesses.

In previous times, the ROG Zephyrus G14 was an extremely powerful 14-inch laptop with an AMD processor and an RTX 4090 Laptop at best. However, its base unit ended up being really thick as a result and its runtimes in combination with the mini-LED panel were only average. As we already saw with the new ROG Zephyrus G16 (reviewed here), Asus' 2024 model of the Zephyrus G14 has taken a slightly different route, aiming to attract new types of customers. Its GPU performance, in particular, has been reduced, as now you can get the GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop at best. In contrast, its case is now more compact and completely made from aluminum (unibody design). Moreover, its mini-LED panel has been swapped out for a G-Sync-enabled OLED one. In total, the new G14 seems to edge much more towards multimedia purposes and its biggest competitors are the Razer Blade 14 and the Apple MacBook Pro 14.

Our test configuration uses the AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS, 32 GB RAM, a 1-TB SSD, the 120-Hz OLED screen as well as the GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop—all for an MRSP of US$2,199.99. The 2023 version of the ROG Zephyrus G14 is still available to purchase if you need the additional performance supplied by the RTX 4090 Laptop.

Case - A lightweight aluminum unibody case with an LED strip

The new ROG Zephyrus G14's design is the same as the larger G16 model and its unibody aluminum case is clearly reminiscent of devices such as the Apple MacBook Pro 14 or the Razer Blade 14. When handling the laptop, there is no doubt that it is a true premium device. Our test device is the dark-gray variant (Eclipse Gray) and you can alternatively get the device in white (Platinum White). The white model is a little less of a fingerprint magnet, whereas the gray model is a little more inconspicuous.

Asus has done without the extensive dot-matrix display on the lid of the new model and in turn, it features a thin white diagonal lighting strip (Slash Lighting) which consists of 28 mini LEDs and 7 different zones. It can be programmed (for example, as a notification light) or it can be completely deactivated if you don't want to draw attention to the device. Aside from its backlit keyboard, the laptop doesn't feature any other lighting elements.

The base unit's build and stability are impressive and even using a lot of pressure, we couldn't press in the keyboard area. Creaking noises are also foreign to the Zephyrus. The thin display lid is a little more flexible but we noted no issues here, either. The lid can be opened easily with one hand and compared to the larger G16, it doesn't wobble as much when adjusting the angle. The new hinge design at the back limits the device's maximum opening angle to 135 degrees to avoid having warm air directed toward the bottom display edge by the cooler openings at the rear. 

Our test configuration of the new Zephyrus G14 only weighs 1.478 kg, making it the lightest device within the comparison field and together with the MacBook Pro 14, it is also one of the most compact models. In this aspect, you can notice a big difference to the much thicker 2023 G14 and the new model is much easier to take with you on the go. The 180-watt power supply adds an additional 559 grams onto the scales.

Connectivity - The AMD Zephyrus with USB 4.0

Despite its smaller case, the G14's connectivity options are nearly identical to the larger G16—only its SD card reader now accommodates smaller microSD cards. Of course, it doesn't support Thunderbolt but in turn, the laptop features a full USB-4.0 port and thanks to its good mix of USB-C and USB-A ports, you likely won't need to reach for an adapter in everyday use. Its ports are spread out well along both sides, too, and gamers will be happy to see that a mouse can be connected on the left as well as on the right side. Alternatively to the 180-watt power supply, the G14 can also be charged via USB-C (max. 100 watts, a 65-watt power supply also worked in our test). Its USB-4.0 port is connected via the iGPU, which means you can power an external monitor without the Nvidia GPU necessarily being active.

SD card reader

The microSD card reader on the right side takes in cards completely and features a spring mechanism. Surprisingly, its performance is better than on the larger G16 and in combination with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60), we measured transfer rates of over 190 MB/s and when copying image files onto the laptop, we still noted great ~150 MB/s speeds.

The WLAN module from MediaTek can be swapped out.

The device's WLAN module from MediaTek (MT9722) supports all the important standards including Wi-Fi 6E as well as Bluetooth 5.3. During the test using our reference router from Asus, we measured extremely high and stable transfer rates, and they were even a little better than on the bigger G16. However, you likely won't notice these differences and during the course of the test, we never had any issues with wireless connections using multiple routers. The G14 doesn't yet support Wi-Fi 7 or feature an Ethernet connection (if needed, you'll have to use a USB adapter).

Maintenance

Aside from the visible screws, there are two further screws situated beneath glued-on rubber covers, which makes accessing the components unnecessarily hard. However, you can't really get up to much on the inside, anyway, as the RAM is now soldered on. The M.2-2280 SSD can be swapped out and so can the WLAN module and battery. In addition, you can access the fans to clean them.

Input devices - Comfortable keyboard and a large touchpad

The G14 has a backlit keyboard (one RGB zone, 3 intensity levels) and despite the flat case, it still features a generous key lift of 1.7 mm. This is also an advantage over the ZenBook Pro 14. It feels very comfortable to type on and has a pleasant touch sound, which means you can easily type longer texts on the device. The keyboard's layout isn't anything out of the ordinary, however, you just have to get used to its single-line Enter key and small arrow keys—these aren't ideal on a gaming laptop.

The new touchpad is very large, measuring 12.7 x 8 cm (16:10 ratio) and Asus makes use of the space beneath the keyboard completely. It is nice to operate thanks to its smooth surface and its clicking noise is pleasantly muffled, giving the touchpad a high-quality feel.

Display - 120 Hz OLED with G-Sync

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

Asus has swapped out the predecessor model's mini-LED screen for a reflective 120-Hz OLED panel with G-Sync support (2,880 x 1,800 pixels, 16:10). Subjectively, the Samsung panel's picture quality is astonishing and films and games look fantastic. Its response times are super fast and thanks to its build, it doesn't suffer from any halo effects.

In SDR mode, it has an average brightness of 420 cd/m², which is a good result. As is typical for OLED, its black value is 0, leading to an extremely high contrast ratio. Asus has stated a maximum of HDR brightness of 500 cd/m², whereas we measured a peak of 485 cd/m². In this aspect, the Samsung panel cannot quite live up to OLED monitors and especially the mini LED panel within the Apple MacBook Pro 14 (max. 1,600 cd/m²). Moreover, we have to continue to critique Windows' HDR implementation, as it has to be activated manually and subsequently, the color profiles don't work right anymore. This currently affects all Windows devices.

The Armoury Crate software gives you different color profiles to select from, which we analyzed using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro2). The pre-selected profile Native is great for everyday use, but the colors are a little too oversaturated. To ensure the best color accuracy, you should go for the profile Display P3. Using this profile, gray tones and colors are already near perfect and you don't have to calibrate the display yourself. We calibrated the display on our test device but we couldn't improve its depiction any further, which is why we haven't made a corresponding profile available for download.

The OLED panel covers the P3 color space as well as the smaller sRGB space completely, plus, if you enjoy editing photos then you can be especially happy about the sRGB profile. Here, the color space is limited to the smaller standard and you can easily work with accurate colors.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
0.68 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.36 ms rise
↘ 0.32 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.62 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.33 ms rise
↘ 0.29 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.1 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 960 Hz ≤ 60 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 960 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 60 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 960 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18305 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

PWM 0 % brightness
PWM 0 % brightness
PWM 20 % brightness

PWM 60 % brightness
PWM 60 % brightness
PWM 80 % brightness (DC Dimming)
PWM 80 % brightness (DC Dimming)
No PWM at 100 %
No PWM at 100 %

In general, the new OLED panel runs using PWM at a frequency of 960 Hz but at brightness levels over 60 %, it makes use of less-harmful DC dimming (at 240 Hz). As soon as the brightness falls beneath this level, a warning pops up stating that DC dimming is no longer available. As was already the case on other OLED laptops from Asus, you get the chance to dim the display using software which lets you continue to use DC dimming. We would just wish to see this control being combined with the regular brightness control in order to maximize comfort. Incidentally, we didn't measure any PWM at all at full display brightness.

The Zephyrus G14 does really well outside and even on sunny days, you can use it well—as long as you stay out of direct sunlight. Its viewing-angle stability is great and only large deviations from the center lead to a slight blue shimmer being noticeable, but this is typical for OLED panels.

Performance - Ryzen 8000 and Ada Lovelace

The 2024 ROG Zephyrus G14 can only be had with the AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS, either with 16 or 32 GB RAM. As the RAM is now soldered on, we would have liked to see all models featuring at least 32 GB and in this respect, the old 2023 G14 is at a bit of an advantage. When it comes to graphics cards, you can choose between the GeForce RTX 4050/4060/4070 Laptop.

 
 
 

Testing conditions

Within its Armoury Crate software, Asus offers a variety of energy profiles as well as a manual mode that lets you individually set the GPU/CPU performance. We put together the energy profiles' values in the following table.

Energy profile CPU load CB R23 Multi GPU load Time Spy graphics Cyberpunk 2077 QHD Ultra max. fan noise emissions
Quiet 55->35 watts 16,580 points 60 watts 6,070 points 39.9 fps 42.9 dB(A)
Performance 65->45 watts 17,079 points 75 watts 10,392 points 43.6 fps 46.2 dB(A)
Turbo 80->80 watts 17,467 points 90 watts 11,348 points 47.7 fps 52.8 dB(A)

After several tests, we decided to run the following benchmarks and measurements using performance mode. Although you might not get the maximum performance, the fans remain bearable when playing games. Thanks to its great speakers, you can even get away with playing without headphones with performance mode selected. Even so, if you require the maximum performance possible, then you can easily switch modes with the push of a button (however, turbo is only available when connected to the mains). During simple tasks, you should select quiet mode.

Processor - Ryzen 9 8945HS

The G14 is equipped with the new AMD Ryzen 9 8945HS (Hawk Point) processor. It is a Phoenix Refresh model that, unfortunately, only shows slight improvements and it continues to rely on Zen4 cores in combination with the integrated Radeon 780M. However, as the clock rates have also remained identical, its total performance is comparable to the old Ryzen 9 7940HS and its performance gain in turbo mode is too low to justify the louder fans. For a comparison of performance and efficiency with the new Intel Meteor Lake processors, please take a look at our analysis article on the new Ryzen 8000 processors which will be published soon. In battery use, its multi-core performance is a little lower (-10 %), as its consumption falls to 45 watts more quickly. Further CPU benchmarks can be found here.

System performance

During the synthetic benchmarks, the new Zephyrus G14 may have come behind the comparison devices, however, you won't notice a difference between the devices in everyday use and the G14 is a very fast-reacting device. We also never had any issues with the system during our test. Due to its Advanced Optimus function, it hangs ever so slightly when switching to the dGPU (e.g. when booting up games), but this is completely normal.
