16:10 screens offer more screenspace without significantly increasing the footprints of laptops.
Mike Wobker (translated by Stanislav Kokhanyuk), 🇩🇪

Because of the shrinking bezels, 16:9 laptops are becoming ever more rectangular. The 16:10 notebooks have the potential to offer not only more screenspace but also a smaller footprint.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16, which comes with a 16-inch screen, has a smaller footprint than comparable laptops with 15-inch displays. The IPS panel of the Zephyrus M16 has a native resolution of 2560x1600 pixels (this is slightly larger than the standard QHD resolution of 2560x1440 pixels). The Zephyrus M16’s screen is colour-accurate, bright and fast (165 Hz; 3 ms). This is why gaming on the Zephyrus M16 is such a pleasure.

Our review configuration of the Zephyrus M16 features an Intel Core i9-11900H and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070. This is why the Zephyrus M16 can easily handle all modern titles. The CPU provides a very high level of performance, which it can sustain over an extended period of time. The RTX 3070 with a 100-W TGP does very well in modern games. However, other laptops manage to squeeze more performance out of this GPU.

The Zephyrus M16 features 6 speakers, which is why it sounds so good. Other gaming notebooks do not sound anywhere near this good. The battery life is also very impressive. The Asus laptop lasted 8 hours in our Wi-Fi test.

We also have a few points of criticism. For instance, the Zephyrus M16 offers below-average Wi-Fi performance. However, the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. All in all, the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 is a great gaming notebook.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
