90% ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402RK review (2022 model – Ryzen 9 6900HS, RX 6800S)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
If you're after a compact multi-purpose laptop in the sub $2000 price range, the 2022 ROG Zephyrus G14 is definitely an option to consider. Compared to the previous G14s, this 2022 model offers refined looks and ergonomics, better inputs and ports, superior screen options, and a webcam, as well as more capable hardware with an updated thermal module. However, it should come as no surprise that squeezing powerful specs inside a compact chassis leads to high internal and external temperatures, especially on an AMD-exclusive platform, so make sure to understand what to expect from this notebook before jumping on it.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402 2022 – Ryzen 9, AMD graphics & vapor chamber
Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, this Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402 is a collection of small refinements of the previous generation, all adding up to an overall improved product. I appreciate the grippier rubber feet, the 180-screen design, the hidden status LEDs, and the fact there’s now a camera at the top of the main display, alongside the updated inputs, screen options, and the more powerful specs with a more advanced thermal module. Still, I’ll need to take this through a proper spin before I can draw any conclusions on performance, as I’m curious where this positions itself against the Nvidia-based competition available with other powerful 14-inchers, as well as how the cooling design handles sustained loads in terms of temperatures and noise levels. If it checks these boxes as well, I expect the 2022 G14 to be highly competitive once more, so I sure am excited about this update. Stay around for our review in the weeks to come, and in the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402R series.

Source: Matthew Moniz English
Review of the 2022 ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14. They completely changed the design for the better and it uses the new Ryzen 6000 series cpu. It's a much better gaming laptop, finally has a webcam and the battery life is amazing. But it's not perfect and theres a few things to watch out for!

Hands on: Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (2022) review
Source: Techradar English
The Asus Zephyrus G14, just like the 2020 version, is an absolute stunner of a gaming laptop. Its a wonder to look at, and it's light enough that you'll toss it in your bag and forget it's even there. It's the kind of gaming laptop that you'll be able to work into your daily life without having to worry about any added back pain or judgement from people at the coffee shop. However, with how good Intel Alder Lake-based laptops are right now, the performance on offer does leave a bit to be desired – at least when it comes to raw CPU performance. We will be continuing our testing suite from here, and we can't wait to see where this laptop ultimately lands.

70% Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Review: The Price Is No Longer Right
Source: The Verge English
The long and short of it is: You can get a G15 for way less. If you’d prefer a 14-incher, you can get a Blade 14 for way less. While these have 16:9 screens, less RAM, and no virtual pets, they’re better in the area that’s most important in a gaming laptop: frame rates in GPU-intensive games. If you want the 16:10 and the pretty lights, you might also consider the Zephyrus M16. It doesn’t offer quite as much in terms of raw graphics power, but it came quite close on the titles tested here, and it’s currently available for literally $1,000 less. This high-end G14 is really in the Blade 15 Advanced’s price category, and that’s a tougher class than it’s occupied in the past. The G14 has a nearly flawless chassis and a powerful CPU that may be worth $1,599, but you shouldn’t spend $2,500. To earn that price tag, it needs to bring better performance.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 is a compact gaming laptop that packs performance in a small build. Compared to its predecessors, the new version also offers more power thanks to AMD and the new Zen 3 processors. The Ze[hyrus G14 logo nameplate has a lustrous new holographic hue which is a very unique way to grab attention. The lid of the machine is covered with 14969 precision CNC milled holes. The bottom of the machine uses perforated metal, keeping it thin, light and performs better in cooling. Additionally, there's a QHD+ panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The resulting display and unique design combination justifies the retail pricing. In terms of brightness and its distribution, the QHD display performed well and also achieved very good results in complete darkness.  A gaming device needs to have good performance. Asus went with AMD's latest processor, the Ryzen 9 6900HS, and that's the right thing to do. The octa-core CPU offers solid multi-core performance, and single-core performance has also been greatly improved.

The AMD RADEON RX 6800S with 8GB of GDDR6 memory was used as the graphics card. 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 1TB solid-state drive complement the overall package nicely. With this hardware specification, most games were played smoothly in maximum detail. The Zephyrus G14's speakers delivered a better than expected sound quality.  Great performance has to be paired with a cooling system for sustainable performance. The Zephyrus 14 is equipped with ROG Intelligent Cooling which features a custom vapor chamber for ultra-efficient heat transfer from the hottest components. Besides that, it also has 0dB technology that allows the fans to be automatically disabled for a truly silent experience.

Battery life is often a weak point for gaming laptops. However, the Zephyrus G14 is completely different. In terms of power consumption, the Zephyrus G14 consumes less power than other competition in idle use. The laptop's 240-watt power supply also charges quicker than its predecessor, which means the battery will be charged quicker than before. Unlike other compact gaming laptops, the Zephyrus G14 is equipped with many input/output ports for connectivity. It has two USB 3.2 Type-C ports, two USB 3.2 Type-A connections, a full-sized HDMI 2.0 socket, a combination audio jack and a microSD card reader. With the Zephyrus G14, Asus delivers a high performing yet attractive looking device. It is a great choice for gamers who are looking for a decent laptop to game on the go.

14.00":

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
