Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603HM-211.ZM16

70% Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: Hot Specs And Hot Air
Source: The Verge English
As a complete package, the Asus Zephyrus M16 is an acceptable improvement over its predecessor purely from the perspective of its hardware. Asus has done a good job keeping the M16 competitive in the realm of performance. Still, many of the issues we had with the previous model remain — namely, the battery life and how audible it can get when under load. The M16 would be easier to recommend if not for the existence of the updated G15, which we have yet to test but will likely top our list of gaming laptops based on how well prior versions of it have performed. If you need a laptop for a variety of creative applications, the M16 would be the wiser investment. However, if you’re in the market for a gaming laptop, the Ryzen-equipped 2021 model of the G15 with an RTX 3070 is available for $1,849.99 and an RTX 3080 for $2,199.99, making it a better value purely for gaming.

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: Well Balanced!
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
To conclude this review, I have really enjoyed my time with the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16. Form its powerful performance, amazing display, to its stellar build quality, almost everything about this laptop makes it a worthy option in its price segment. Yes, you can get other RTX 3060-powered laptops at much cheaper prices, but their build and display quality are not as good as this one. And the top-of-the-line Intel CPU here delivers stellar performance too. Thus, if you are a gamer and a content creator, the M16 can fulfill both of your requirements. Also, I find Asus’s Armory Crate app to be quite well-made compared to others.

70% Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: Overpriced And Underpowered
Source: The Verge English
In a vacuum, there’s nothing particularly objectionable about the Zephyrus M16. The exceptional 16:10 display and the, well, existence of a webcam are great additions — and they make the M16 more pragmatic as a primary work driver than other gaming laptops in its class. The addition of Thunderbolt and Intel-specific features like Quick Sync will be icing on the cake for creative professionals who won’t be able to find those benefits in an AMD system. However, the M16 is still a Zephyrus. It’s not intended to be a primary work driver or for coffee-shop creatives; it is, first and foremost, a gaming laptop. And it’s too expensive for its performance. It provides a weaker GPU, worse battery life, and a significantly worse battery-gaming experience than comparably priced AMD systems. You’re paying for this webcam and incredible screen not only with extra money but also with frame rates. That doesn’t mean there’s no audience for the M16. The screen, the upgraded ports, and the webcam aren’t trivial bonuses.

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603) review: portable, powerful and premium
Source: T3 English
Those looking to buy one of the best possible gaming laptops will want to consider the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603). It’s pricey but delivers lightning-fast performance in a lightweight, portable PC. The only thing that lets it down is the battery life, but in literally every other area this laptop is excellent.

90% Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: An absolute beast for the price
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 is a beauty. From its performance and 16-inch display to its battery life and clicky keyboard, this baby is worth considering if you're on the market for a gaming laptop. However, $1,849 might be too pricey for some, especially those who want to prioritize the GPU or the CPU. If so, consider the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE, which offers the same GPU but for more than $400 less. Keep in mind that you’d be dropping to a 14-inch display with an inferior CPU, less storage and a lower resolution display. Overall, the Zephyrus M16 is a truly badass gaming laptop worth your time and money.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 Review - Intel 11th Gen Core i9
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16, a 16” thin and light gaming laptop that also targets creatives. The M16 runs on Intel’s 11th gen 8-core Tiger Lake Core i7 and Core i9 CPUs with Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe 4.0. The notebook PC has NVIDIA RTX graphics and a striking 16:10 aspect ratio QHD+ display with full P3 color gamut. It uses the same chassis as the AMD Ryzen-based Zephyrus G15 and has a healthy selection of ports. A 90WHr battery, single zone RGB keyboard backlighting and a subtle colorful lid effect via reflective mylar underneath are standard. We look at benchmarks, thermals and gaming performance.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: Powerful Tiger Lake-H Gaming
Source: Hot Hardware English
Once again, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 doesn't have the longest endurance, but it still lasted a full hour and 44 more minutes running this torture-test of a battery benchmark. More often than not, the battery is meant to be more of an uninterruptable power supply in a gaming notebook, but it seems that ASUS did a nice job balancing endurance and performance.
