ROG Zephyrus S set the standard for ultra-slim Windows 10 Pro gaming laptops. Now it has bigger aspirations with a super-narrow-bezel 17-inch display in a chassis just 18.7mm thin. Zephyrus S GX701 is loaded with up to a GeForce RTX 2080 GPU and 8th Gen Intel® Core i7 CPU. Immerse in its 144Hz/3ms panel with Pantone®-validated colors, and use the ROG-exclusive GPU switch to change between G-SYNC for gaming and Optimus for battery life.
Immersing yourself in a larger display usually means lugging a larger laptop, but slim bezels and smart design make ROG Zephyrus S the smallest in its class. Easily carry it around town or across the world thanks to compact dimensions that put a 17-inch display in a 15-inch form factor. The sleek magnesium-alloy body fits inside standard bags* and is strong enough to stand up to everyday life.

Slender bezels draw you deeper into the action on the 144Hz IPS-level display. The high refresh rate makes gameplay smoother and lowers input lag, while the 3ms grey-to-grey response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring. Color accuracy is critical for content creators, so factory calibration and ProArt TruColor Technology deliver a Pantone® Validated palette.
Live a double life powered by the ROG-exclusive GPU switch. With just a few clicks, ROG Zephyrus S transitions between better gaming and longer battery life. G-SYNC mode synchronizes the GPU and display to deliver smoother gameplay with lower input lag and tear-free graphics, while Optimus mode selectively turns off the discrete GPU to save power with everyday desktop productivity and entertainment.
Remarkably slim without sacrificing speed, ROG Zephyrus S harnesses the latest GeForce RTX 2080 GPU and 8th Gen Intel® Core i7 CPU to deliver desktop-like performance for hardcore gaming, serious creative work, and cutting-edge VR. The GPU enables photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. It boosts up to 1230MHz at 100W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6001MHz, and both can be overclocked. This powerful core is backed by up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM for heavy multitasking and a 1TB NVMe SSD for your game library and professional portfolio.
Ultra-slim laptops leave less breathing room for cooling, so the unique ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) expands to help Zephyrus S sustain top performance for gaming and other heavy loads. Lifting the lid opens a large intake that increases airflow by up to 32% compared to typical designs. Anti-dust tunnels keep the heatsinks clean to preserve cooling efficiency and system stability over time.
The forward keyboard position lowers surface temperatures on the desktop-style layout, so you can game in comfort for hours. Customize per-key RGB backlighting for different games and workflows, and match colors and effects with compatible peripherals using Aura Sync. Illumination extends to a unique volume roller positioned for quick adjustment and a glowing numpad that appears on the touchpad.
Smart amplifier tech keeps the speakers within thermal and excursion limits when you spin the volume wheel, so you can turn it up without harming the cones. The amplified output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear enemies on the battlefield, dialog in videos, and subtleties of your productivity soundtrack. Plug in a headset for immersion, and go deeper with virtual surround sound.
ROG was first to support both DC and Type-C charging on gaming laptops. USB Power Delivery lets Zephyrus S charge from portable power packs, so you don't have to find a socket when the battery gets low. Fast-charging support reverses the flow, using up to 3A to quickly revive smartphones and other devices. You can also do everyday work with a smaller 65W adapter that lightens your load on the road.
*ZenPower Pro PD and 65W adapter are sold separately.
*Charging time is based on when the laptop is web-surfing.
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity needed for gaming and working on the go. Alongside the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C with DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery, one Type-A port offers Gen 2 connectivity for devices that can keep up. Another Type-C (USB-C) port is available at USB 3.1 Gen 1 speed, while additional Type-A ports are perfect for a gamepad, mouse, or USB storage. HDMI 2.0 supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
