92.3% Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 review - The gaming laptop now with G-Sync OLED and Intel Meteor Lake | Notebookcheck
Asus' new ROG Zephyrus G16 features a completely new and considerably slimmer design, with a target market in mind that goes beyond just gamers. The resulting product is a high-quality 16-inch laptop with an impressive OLED panel and excellent speakers that can easily compete with Apple's MacBook Pro or the Razer Blade 16. Update: 240 Hz screen refresh rate battery life tests added
70% ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16c (2024): A Sleek Powerhouse for Gamers and Creators
Source: Make Use Of English
If you're looking for a gaming laptop that doubles as a productivity powerhouse, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 is worth considering. It blends the performance of a gaming laptop with the aesthetics of a more traditional, professional device. This makes it ideal for those who need a machine for both serious work and gaming. However, keep in mind that its slim design leads to reduced performance under intense workloads and a shorter battery life. If you often work on the go and depend on long battery life, this could be a significant issue. But if you're mostly using your laptop at a desk near a power source, the benefits of the Zephyrus G16 might outweigh these drawbacks. I think if you value a laptop that offers strong performance, a great screen, and good connectivity, without the typical gaming laptop appearance, the Zephyrus G16 is worth considering.

This 2024 Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 series is a well-rounded update in the premium class of all-purpose portable notebooks. The premium craftsmanship, the excellent inputs, display, audio and ports, and the balanced performance in multitasking and demanding loads are among its main selling points, while on the other hand, potential buyers need to be aware of the power particularities and the toasty temperatures that are to be expected with sustained activities on this design.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 hands-on: Gorgeous redesign with a lot of power
Source: Laptop Mag English
Sleek, powerful and bursting with potential, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 has its hat in the running for one of the best gaming laptops page, provided its fancy new Intel Meteor Lake chip can live up to the hype performance-wise. The AI portion is definitely intriguing, but until I see something that will benefit gamers specifically, those are the benchmarks I’m going to live and die by. So far we’ve seen promising numbers, but the verdict’s out until we get our hands on a final production unit. The redesign is eye-catching and I love a svelte system that I can take with me on the road without fear of inducing back pain down the line that can still kick some ass. Because depending on the already battle-test Nvidia RTX 4000 series, the G16 is a bonafide ass kicker. I just hope the speakers and keyboard are better on the final model, but as it stands, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 holds plenty of promise.

Due to the lack of new GPUs from NVIDIA at CES 2024, ASUS could have refreshed the processors in its flagship gaming laptop line and simply called it a day. But much to my delight, ASUS still went and completely redesigned the ROG Zephyrus G14 and G16 and it feels like the company may have struck the perfect balance between performance and a more sophisticated take on the gamer aesthetic.

Asus’ new Zephyrus gaming laptop has me excited for the future
Source: Mobile Syrup English
As CES 2024 ramps up, Asus kicked things off with a new line of ROG Zephyrus gaming laptops that, much to my surprise, are thin and light enough to allow for easy portability. I actually wrote this on the bigger of the two laptops, the Zephyrus G16, which Asus sent me ahead of the announcement to test out. Unfortunately, I can’t dig into performance and benchmarks yet (stay tuned for a full review in the coming weeks!), I can say it has me rethinking my staunch position on gaming laptops. From my first impressions after using the Zephyrus G16 for a little over a week, Asus managed to offer a reasonably thin-and-light laptop while still boasting significant performance and gaming capabilities. Plus, the simple design looks vague MacBook-ish, meaning it shouldn’t stand out like the typically garish designs we see on gaming laptops. The Zephyrus sports a CNC-machined aluminum chassis, which helps with the weight. It’s also quite sturdy, with virtually no flex.

89% ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 (2024) review: Not just for gamers
Source: Engadget English
Just like its smaller sibling, ASUS’ ROG Zephyrus G16 is an almost ideal thin-and-light gaming laptop. It’s got a sleek all-aluminum build, a gorgeous 240Hz OLED display and longer battery life. Granted, it might not be quite as powerful as some of its rivals thanks to lower-wattage components, but it’s still got enough oomph to handle practically anything you can throw at it. And thanks to a full-size SD card reader, it makes for an even better portable editing workstation. But most importantly, with a starting price of $1,750, the G16 is more approachable than many of its high-end (and bulkier) competitors, which makes it a great pick for people who want a larger system that won’t weigh them down.

81% ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 (2024) Review: Balancing Performance and Portability
Source: Think Digit English
There’s no denying the premium build quality and excellent craftsmanship of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16. It has a stunning OLED display and a good selection of ports, all of which are packaged nicely into a super slim and lightweight 16-inch chassis. It’s even more impressive if you consider that it comes with heavy-duty hardware like the Core Ultra 9 and an RTX 4090. Unfortunately, it does come with its own set of flaws. The laptop cannot compete with beefier alternatives in the market when it comes to performance; cheaper laptops with GPUs a tier lower outperform the max-Q RTX 4090 on the Zephyrus G16. The new Meteor-Lake processor also doesn’t seem to offer improved performance over its predecessors. Additionally, the laptop comes with 32 GB of RAM, which is plenty, but it’s soldered on, so there’s no way to increase it in the future.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605 review – Thin on Size, Big on Power, This OLED Laptop is a Gaming Beast
Source: Laptop Media English
Capable thin and light laptop, is that possible? Sure, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605 proves that a compact sleek-looking machine can be suitable for gaming. We thought that the fans would be extremely noisy in “Turbo” mode but we were wrong. Of course, they are loud and audible but the noise isn’t too high or unbearable. However, the “Performance” preset is the sweet spot for gaming because the fans are much quieter in this mode. In “Silent”, the fans are turned off when the system is in an idle state or during very light usage. The 2.5K OLED panel (Samsung ATNA60DL01-0 (SDC41A3)) impresses with an infinite contrast ratio and a 240 Hz frequency. The display covers fully even the DCI-P3 gamut.

This 4090 Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 is rather peculiar proposition. On one hand, it's a premium design with excellent craftsmanship, a beautiful OLED display, punchy speakers, good inputs and plenty of IO. On the other, it is a more compact and lightweight 16-inch laptop than most of the other options available out there, and that means it doesn't match the performance of those beefier alternatives. Is this the right trade-off for you at around 3K USD?

100% Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 review: goes beyond gaming
Source: Stuff TV English
If OLED screens are the latest gaming laptop battleground, then Asus has landed a powerful first strike. The ROG Zephyrus G16’s sensible panel resolution doesn’t demand the GPU work overtime like a 4K screen will, yet looks absolutely stunning in motion thanks to a 240Hz refresh rate. The new chassis is fantastically thin and light, with the sort of materials I’d expect from a MacBook Pro rival, rather than a gaming machine. I think the silver model’s keyboard and backlight combo could be more legible, but otherwise there’s very little worth griping over. The slash LED on the lid is especially easy on the eye, too.

90% Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 (2024) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The ROG Zephyrus G16 works both as a stylish gaming laptop and as a high-performance model for creators, matching strong ergonomics with stylish looks, good performance and an excellent screen. Even if the battery life is underwhelming, everything else from the audio to the keyboard is top-notch. Of course, all this goodness comes with a sky-high price tag, especially for the Core Ultra 9/RTX 4090 model. If you have £4000 to spend, other options are available, ranging from powerhouse creator laptops (the Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch M3 Max or the MSI Stealth 16 Studio) to mighty gaming monsters like the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 X3D. Some come in at cheaper price points while boasting superior specs. But if you’re looking for a laptop where style, portability, ergonomics and performance all come together, it’s hard to dismiss the ROG Zephyrus G16. The price may put it beyond most people’s budgets, but it’s something of a dream machine.

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 review: challenging my expectations
Source: Digital Trends English
If you’re after raw performance, the Zephyrus G16 isn’t for you. Smaller laptops that are still portable can post higher results, and you may have to make a few compromises in games to get smooth frame rates at native resolution. This is a gaming laptop, but it has an asterisk. For the way I use a gaming laptop, which is as a portable companion to a desktop, the Zephyrus G16 fills a perfect void. It’s highly portable and just powerful enough to play games without major drawbacks. The price isn’t bad, either, at least considering the specs and build quality on offer here. If you already have a desktop or some other primary platform for playing games, the Zephyrus G16 is a great buy. As a primary gaming platform, there are better options. The aforementioned Lenovo Legion Pro 5 is thicker, but it’s also cheaper and faster. On the other end, Asus’ own Zephyrus G14 provides similar performance for around the same price, but it’s far more portable.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 Review: New Look, Same Solid Performance
Source: Lowyat.net English
The new design of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G16 certainly provides an air of elegance and with the ROG Nebula Display, it’s as good a laptop for the creator and professional lot, just as it is for gaming. Still on the display, 240Hz is definitely a lot for this sort of monitor, given most games that you’ll be playing won’t be going past the 120 fps mark, especially at this unit’s display resolution, and with the hardware inside it. And while not as long as some other gaming laptops, the fact that this 16-inch gaming laptop can go for seven hours before crying out for a wall socket is nothing to sneeze at. Seriously, I think this year’s G16 is a nice balance between performance and endurance. If you’re looking for gaming laptops more powerful than this, though, I would recommend that you cast your gaze over to machines like ASUS’ Scar 18 or MSI’s Titan 18.

16.00:

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.
