Fresh Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 retailer leaks reveal prices and specs for more variants of the 16-inch 16:10 laptop
More examples of the 16-inch Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 have been appearing online, with numerous retailers seemingly leaking the specs and prices of the upcoming 16:10 laptops. Along with the already-reported GU603HE model there also appears to be the GU603HM and the GU603HR SKUs as well. MyLaptopGuide discovered the latter two featuring in Amazon China listings, but now all of these Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 laptops have starred in retailer sites in France and Italy too. A listing for the GU603HM (via VideoCardz) at an Irish retailer stated the device was “out of stock” until 13 April, but this has now been updated to 20 April at the time of writing so it is clearly not the official launch date.
However, with all this information now appearing about the ROG Zephyrus M16, you can imagine the launch date isn’t too far off. The price listed for a GU603HE SKU with Intel Core i9-11900H, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and 144 Hz 16:10 display (1920x1200, WUXGA) is €1,799 (US$2,139). Meanwhile, the €2,699 (US$3,209) GU603HR M16 laptop previously mentioned has an i7-11800H CPU and GeForce RTX 3070 dGPU and also sports a 16:10, 165 Hz, 2560x1600 (WQXGA) screen. For those who would prefer a better processor (i9-11900H) but a lower-resolution screen (1920x1200 WUXGA) with their RTX 3070 graphics chip, the apparent Chinese price tag for this Zephyrus M16 variant is 17,652 yuan (€2,263/US$2,692).
The three currently known Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 model numbers can be broken down as follows according to their listings in various Chinese, Italian, and French retailer sites:
|GU603HR||Intel Core i9-11900H||GeForce RTX 3070||16-inch, 16:10, 1920×1200 (WUXGA), 165 Hz|
|GU603HR||Intel Core i7-11800H||GeForce RTX 3070||16-inch, 16:10, 2560×1600 (WQXGA), 165 Hz|
|GU603HM||Intel Core i9-11800H||GeForce RTX 3060||16-inch, 16:10, 2560×1600 (WQXGA), ? Hz|
|GU603HM||Intel Core i7-11800H||GeForce RTX 3060||16-inch, 16:10, 1920×1200 (WUXGA), 144 Hz|
|GU603HE||Intel Core i9-11900H||GeForce RTX 3050 Ti||16-inch, 16:10, 1920×1200 (WUXGA), 144 Hz|
It seems likely some more variants will soon turn up as Asus prepares to unveil its 16-inch ROG Zephyrus M16 laptops with 16:10 aspect ratio displays in the near future.
