Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605MI, Ultra 9 185H

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.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
