The Asus S Zephyrus GX531GW is an unconventional-looking, slim and sturdy gaming laptop the likes of which are few in the market. While the fan noise is one issue, the gaming laptop comes with technologies like AAS, Sonic Studio, Sonic Radar III etc. and offers a smooth gaming experience. The battery life of the laptop is also optimum (about two-and-a-half hours) if you are using the laptop for the purpose of browsing, watching videos etc. For users who would like a more conventional Asus device, they could check out the G series laptops by the company.

At S$3,698, the Zephyrus S GX531GW is a good S$500 more expensive than its predecessor, but it makes up for that with significantly better performance. Previously, you could only get the Zephyrus S with a GeForce GTX 1060 locally, but you can now get the newest model with up to a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q, a huge step up. There's much to like about the Zephyrus S now, and I think the more powerful specifications and better battery life have transformed it into quite a winner.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.
These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
i7-8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
