The test device before us is powered by a Core i7-9750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2080 Max Q GPU. The laptop's highlight is, however, the 300 Hz IPS display. It scores points with short response times, stable viewing angles and good contrast. In addition, the display features an X-Rite Pantone certification, which ensures a very natural color reproduction.
But the Zephyrus is not free of weaknesses. For example, it offers very limited upgrade and expansion options. Asus is also stingy when it comes to port selection. The laptop lacks a Thunderbolt 3 port, a memory card reader and an Ethernet port.
What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.
