Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 review - The gaming laptop now with G-Sync OLED and Intel Meteor Lake

Gaming meets high-end multimedia. 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

Republic of Gamers—this stands for gaming laptops at Asus. When it comes to the new ROG Zephyrus G16 (and also the smaller G14), however, the manufacturer has altered its approach slightly, aiming to speak to further types of customers. To do so, it uses a flatter and more elegant case design, but this limits what components can be installed. The result is a high-end gaming/multimedia hybrid laptop which could also be interesting for content creators or, in general, users who are on the hunt for a stylish and powerful device. In fact, the new Zephyrus G16 is also the only 2024 gaming laptop from Asus to date that uses a new Meteor Lake processor from Intel. The smaller ROG Zephyrus G14 (review will be published soon), on the other hand, uses the new Ryzen 8000 processors from AMD.

Our test version of the ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605M isn't the high-end variant, as aside from its new Core Ultra 7 155H, it is equipped with the GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop. In addition, it now features an OLED display from Samsung which has a 240-Hz refresh rate and supports G-Sync for the first time. Furthermore, the laptop has 16 GB RAM and a 1-TB SSD installed. The new G16 is available to purchase from February 15th with prices starting from US$2,899.99; we can't yet name an MRSP for our test configuration.

February 5, 2024 update: Battery life tests with the OLED panel's refresh rate set to 240 Hz added. Please scroll down to the Runtimes section for details.

Case - The Zephyrus now made from aluminum

Asus' new Zephyrus G16 features an elegant aluminium unibody case and at first glance, you are immediately reminded of devices like the Razer Blade 16 or the Apple MacBook Pro 16. When handling the laptop, there is no doubt that this is a true premium device. Our test device is the dark-gray version (Eclipse Gray) and during the preview event at the end of last year, we also had a chance to take a look at the white variant (Platinum White). The white model is a little less of a fingerprint magnet but in turn, the dark-gray model is a little more inconspicuous. We also included a few pictures of the white variant in our photo gallery.

Asus has forgone the extensive dot-matrix display on the lid of the new model and in turn, it features a thin diagonal white light strip (Slash Lighting) consisting of 28 mini LEDs and 7 different zones. It can be programmed (for example, as a notification light) or alternatively, it can be completely deactivated if you don't to draw too much attention to the device. Aside from the keyboard, there are no further illuminated elements.

By default, the LED bar pulsates in standby mode, but this can be deactivated.

The cooler openings at the back direct warm air towards the floor and not directly towards the lower edge of the screen, which limits the laptop's opening angle.

The device's build and stability are astounding and the keyboard practically can't be pressed in at all—even using lots of pressure. Creaking noises are also foreign to the Zephyrus. The thin display lid is a little more flexible but we noted no issues here, either. However, the new hinge design limits the laptop's maximum opening angle to 135 degrees. The lid can easily be opened with one hand but for our taste, the hinge could do with being set a little more tightly, as it wobbles quite a bit when you adjust the angle. 

The new ROG Zephyrus G16 is one of the most compact models in our comparison field and together with the Vision 16 Pro and the MacBook Pro, its 16.4 mm make it one of the thinnest models, too. However, it should also be noted that our test device is the thinnest version of the range, as the TFT models and Vapor-Chamber models are a little thicker. It is lightweight as well, weighing 1.8 kg; the 200-watt power supply adds an additional 583 grams onto the scales.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt and speedy WLAN

The back is completely taken up by the cooling, which is why the ports are spread out between both sides of the laptop. Asus now uses a new rectangular power supply connector which has been placed on the back left of the case. The device features all the important connections, as aside from USB-C, it also has USB-A, a full HDMI output and a card reader. Both USB-C ports support Power Delivery at up to 100 watts and the one on the left supports Thunderbolt 4. It just doesn't have an Ethernet connection—if required, you will have to use a USB adapter.

SD card reader

The G16 has a full-featured card reader on the right side, whereby inserted cards jut out by about 1.2 cm. In combination with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60), it achieved transfer rates of around 80-90 MB/s, meaning the test device came out near the bottom.

Asus has forgone Wi-Fi 7 but even so, the AX211 module from Intel is still an up-to-date WLAN adapter that supports Bluetooth 5.3 as well as Wi-Fi 6E. Together with our reference router from Asus, its transfer rates were very good and stable and during our test period, we had no issues surrounding signal quality.

Maintenance

Aside from the visible screws, two further ones are hidden beneath glued-on rubber covers. This makes accessing the components unnecessarily difficult. However, you can't really get up to much on the inside anyway, as the RAM is now soldered on. On the flip side, there are two slots for SSDs and if desired, the WLAN module and battery can be swapped out. You can also access the fans to clean them.

Input devices - Comfortable keyboard and huge touchpad

The G16 features a backlit keyboard (one RGB zone, 3 intensity levels) with no dedicated number pad. The layout isn't anything out of the ordinary but you do have to get used to the single-line Enter key as well as the small arrow keys—this isn't ideal for a gaming laptop. The keyboard itself is, however, extremely comfortable and its keys have a generous lift of 1.7 mm. It is quite quiet in everyday use and you can easily use it to write longer texts.

The laptop's new touchpad is extremely large, measuring 15 x 9.9 cm (37 % bigger than before) with a 16:10 ratio. It feels great to operate thanks to its smooth surface, and its clicking noise is nice and muffled, giving it a high-quality feel.

Display - Asus' first 240-Hz OLED with G-Sync

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The new ROG Zephyrus G16 is the first laptop to have a 16-inch OLED panel that supports G-Sync. Furthermore, its refresh rate is 240 Hz and subjectively, the reflective Samsung panel's picture quality is just astounding: Content is razor-sharp and colors look super vivid. Thanks to its fast response times, the OLED is also perfect for gaming. Asus hasn't installed a brightness sensor.

In SDR mode, it has an average brightness of 420 cd/m², which is a good result. As is typical for OLED, it has a black value of 0, leading to an extremely high contrast ratio. Asus has stated a maximum HDR brightness of 500 cd/m², whereas we measured a peak of 455 cd/m². In this aspect, the Samsung panel can't quite keep up with other OLED monitors and especially the mini LED panel installed into Apple's MacBook Pro 16 (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. Due to the OLED panel's build, it doesn't suffer from any halo effects.

* ... smaller is better

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. Gray tones may still show some deviations (but without a color tint), however, its color accuracy compared to the P3 reference is already excellent and all colors show deviations below the important value of 3.

We additionally calibrated the display ourselves—with mixed results. Although we were able to improve grayscale deviations ever so slightly, this resulted in larger color deviations and all-in-all, it didn't really improve the situation. This is why we aren't making the corresponding profile available for download. The display covers the P3 color space in its entirety, but it also features a very accurate sRGB mode, in case you would like to edit photos or videos in the smaller color space.

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
0.25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.13 ms rise
↘ 0.12 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
0.22 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.11 ms rise
↘ 0.11 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 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 18251 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

PWM 0% brightness

PWM 60 % brightness
PWM 80 % brightness (DC Dimming)
PWM 80 % brightness (DC Dimming)
PWM 100 % brightness (DC Dimming)
PWM 100 % brightness (DC Dimming)

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.

The Zephyrus G16 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.

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. It should be noted, however, that these values only count for the configurations featuring the 4070/4060/4050 Laptop which are fitted with conventional heat pipes and three fans. The more powerful models with the RTX 4080/4090 Laptop, on the other hand, have a Vapor-Chamber cooling system with two fans, which is why the processor and GPU consume more power (in all profiles). 

Energy profile CPU load CB R23 Multi GPU load Time Spy graphics Cyberpunk 2077 QHD Ultra max. fan emissions
Quiet 60->45 watts 15,869 points 65 watts 9,042 points 32.6 fps 41.5 dB(A)
Performance 70->50 watts 17,133 points 80 watts 10,989 points 43.7 fps 46.4 dB(A)
Turbo 95->70 watts 18,372 points 105 watts 12,312 points 48.7 fps 52.4 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, as noise emissions from about 48 dB(A) are hard to tolerate. 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, as otherwise, the fans can almost always be heard.

Processor - Core Ultra 7 155H

We already took a look at the new Meteor-Lake-gen Core Ultra 7 155H in our analysis article. With power limits of 70/50 watts, the processor does well—but there is no real difference to the old Raptor-Lake chips such as the Core i7-13700H and this also doesn't change when you select turbo mode. Its single-core performance is slightly weaker, however, and we are already looking forward to seeing how Meteor Lake fares against the new Ryzen-8000 CPUs. All-in-all, its multi-core performance remains very constant in total. In battery use, the CPU performance remains constant. Further CPU benchmarks can be found here.

System performance

Subjectively, the laptop performs well—only during graphics switching (e.g. booting up games) does it hang slightly during the MUX switch, but this is completely normal. The competition achieved more points in the synthetic tests, however, you won't likely notice the difference in everyday use. Its memory benchmark results were excellent, but its RAM can't be expanded and 16 GB on a high-end device is simply not enough. All models should have 32 GB as standard.

Storage devices

A second M.2-2280 slot is available.
A second M.2-2280 slot is available.

The new G16 has two M.2-2280 slots which are connected via PCIe 4.0. The 1-TB version of the Western Digital SN560 is installed into our test device and although it delivered good transfer rates of up to 5 GB/s, it isn't one of the fastest drives on the market. At least its performance remains constant even under permanent load. Ex-works, users have 855 GB free to use. Further SSD benchmarks can be found here.
