Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605MY

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.

85% Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 GU605MY review (Core Ultra 9 185H, RTX 4090)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

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.

16.00":

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.
