Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 GX703HSD
Laptops have little space to adequately cool powerful hardware. Asus probably wondered, "why don't we just open the case and let the hardware get a direct supply of fresh air?" No sooner said than done, but does this actually work? Does it deliver the promised advantages in terms of noise and temperature, and is it stable enough at the same time? We put this to the test.

Once Asus get their QC in check and address the stuttering we noticed while playing games on the Advanced Optimus profile, this 2021 Zephyrus S17 GX703 is going to be an excellently-balanced 17-inch laptop and possibly the best option in its premium niche. Not the most powerful out there, but a very fine mix of build quality, portability, features, and performance across the board in everyday use, workloads, and games. Right now, though, I feel this is still a little unpolished, and in the review down below we'll get in-depth on why this is.

If you're going all out for an elite gaming laptop, it's almost impossible to go wrong with the new Zephyrus S17. Our sample's $3,299 is a lot of cheddar, but it's more or less the going rate for this level of hardware, and no other laptop we know off offers a tilted optical-mechanical keyboard plus a six-speaker sound system. Esports hounds might bemoan the lack of a high-refresh-rate 1080p display, but the 165Hz WQHD screen ought to thrill everyone else. Epic in every way, the ROG Zephyrus S17 is our new Editors' Choice pick for a deluxe big-screen gaming laptop.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus S17, especially this model, is the most powerful offering in the company’s latest line of gaming laptops powered by Intel 11th-gen CPUs. The last ROG Zephyrus that blew us away was the Zephyrus Duo 15 with its secondary screen. In the case of the S17, the company makes that second attempt by equipping it with a keyboard with optical mechanical switches. This is good news if you’re a user that likes these kinds of switches. However, some users might not appreciate it, especially those already used to using their own mechanical keyboards. The multi-wheel, on the other hand, is more for convenience. Good to have, nonetheless.

I know, you’re pissed about the lack of an AMD option on this Zephyrus S17 model, but that’s just the way it is. I haven’t run detailed tests on this early sample, but from the little I did run, this Intel platform is no slouch, even if it’s not going to match the Ryzen 9s in terms of efficiency or capabilities in certain multi-threaded scenarios. General demanding loads and especially gaming, on the other hand, that’s where I’m pretty sure this will end up at least competitive.
