The 2023 ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 with the latest Zen 4 Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU, an RTX 4060 graphics card, 16 GB of DDR5 RAM, and 512 GB of PCIe 4 storage is currently on sale for only US$1,249.99 at Best Buy (via slickdeals). The discounted price represents a big 22% off the US$1,599.99 list price. According to Honey’s price history tool, the US$1,249.99 is the lowest the ROG Zephyrus G14 has gotten in 120 days.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 garnered an excellent score of 90% in our review. Part of the reason why we rated the machine so highly is the sturdy construction that is complemented by thin bezels and 1.7 kg of weight. Additionally, we also liked the backlit keyboard and glass touchpad owing to their good feedback and commendable gliding properties respectively.
When it comes to performance, our review unit which was equipped with an RTX 4090 performed like a beast. The Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU on offer proved to be a superb chip with both fast performance and efficient operation. For instance, the Zen 4 Phoenix CPU appeared to be 15% ahead of the Ryzen 9 6900HS in single-core performance per our tests.
The RTX 4060 present in the unit on sale is practically on par with the last-gen RTX 3070 laptop GPU. As such, the Ada Lovelace board has enough horsepower to drive even the most demanding games at FHD resolution at respectable frame rates. For instance, the RTX 4060 played Cyberpunk 2077, Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, and Star Wars Jedi Survivor at 88, 66, and 60 FPS at FHD/High respectively.
Finally, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 lasted a total of 6 hours in our WLAN test at 165 Hz. Since the SKU on offer packs a much less power-hungry RTX 4060 and an IPS panel instead of the Mini-Led display, the notebook should last measurably longer.
All in all, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 for US$1,249.99 could make for a sensible purchase, as it is a stellar mid-range gaming laptop that is well-made, performs like a champ, and enjoys acceptable endurance.
