Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603H

Much like the G15, the ROG Zephyrus M16 is an awesome laptop on paper, but still somewhat skewed in real-life in a couple of ways that you should be aware of before deciding on it. As long as the price is competitive in your region, though, this is worth considering over the G15 for the awesome 16:10 QHD+ screen, the excellent performance across the board, the improved thermals, and the small other extras. However, keep in mind that the battery life takes a hit here from the G15, the thermal module blows the hot air straight into the screen, and that you'll end up paying a premium for this M16 over the AMD model launched earlier in the year.

I’d expect the AMD models to still have an edge in multi-threaded loads and efficiency, but this Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603 will surely be at least competitive with general loads and gaming, so the performance should not be a concern for most potential buyers. Instead, I’d be more worried about the thermals on the higher-power settings and how much of an issue having the hot-air blown straight into the screen is going to be here, something I’m looking forward to properly clarify in that review.

Rather than just stick with ho-hum speed bumps -- though it certainly has rolled out the new 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs and in some cases, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 series GPUs -- Asus has also spiffed up the designs of several of its gaming notebooks. In some cases, the updates are dramatic, such as a complete overhaul that includes bringing the lift-up keyboard from the ZenBook to the ROG Zephyrus S17. In others the differences are a little more subtle, like the sleeker profile and colorful lid of the Zephyrus M16, which also graduates to a 16-inch display in the same size chassis as the M15 thanks to the ubiquitous bezel shrink ray and 16:10 aspect-ratio fairy dust. The company also announced updates to its TUF F15 and F17 gaming laptops.
