After redefining ultra-slim gaming laptops with the original Zephyrus, ROG brings hardcore Windows 10 Pro gaming to an even thinner design framed by super-narrow bezels. ROG Zephyrus S uses innovative engineering to cool its GeForce RTXTM 2080 GPU and 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, so you can immerse yourself in its no-compromise 240Hz/3ms display with Pantone® Color Validation.
The new standard for ultraportable gaming
Clever design and expert craftsmanship are required to put high-end chips into the slimmest gaming laptop ever. At just 15.35~16.15mm thin with a GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor, ROG Zephyrus S is portable but powerful enough for life on the go. In one fluid motion of hidden scissor-door hinges, it transforms from svelte sidekick to gaming powerhouse.
SHRINKING BEZELS WITHOUT SACRIFICING SPEED
Super-narrow bezels draw you deeper into the action on the 240Hz IPS-level display. The high refresh rate makes gameplay smoother and lowers input lag, while the 3ms gray-to-gray response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring. With the full sRGB color gamut, wide viewing angles, and optional HDR, ROG Zephyrus S blends speed and beauty without compromise.
Potent performance rivals desktops
Don’t be fooled by its lithe body; ROG Zephyrus S has ample power for AAA games, VR experiences, and serious creative work. The six-core 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU delivers desktop-like performance, while the all-new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU enables photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. ROG Boost ramps the GPU up to 1330MHz at 90W in turbo mode, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6151MHz, and both can be overclocked. An NVMe SSD up to 1TB offers speedy storage for your growing game library and professional portfolio.
INTELLIGENT COOLING IMPROVES YOUR EXPERIENCE
ROG's Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and system settings to ensure the best experience for the chassis and components, no matter what you’re doing. In Zephyrus S, our innovative Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) opens additional vents to increase airflow by 22%, while the self-cleaning thermal module ejects dust to improve longevity. ROG Armoury Crate software seamlessly switches between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task.
ROG Zephyrus S passes stringent internal quality tests, including surviving multiple drops from a height of 76cm, so it’s tough enough to handle day-to-day hazards. It also meets demanding MIL-STD-810G standards for enduring shock, altitude, and extreme environmental conditions that would leave lesser laptops begging for mercy.
Aura Sync beyond the gaming keyboard
The keyboard ensures precise input in the heat of battle, and it’s built to last. You can customize the backlight colors and effects to suit your style, and another configurable RGB zone illuminates the AAS intake at the back. Aura Sync harmonizes lighting across compatible ROG mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your setup a cohesive look.
Amp up your audio
ROG Zephyrus S puts audio at the forefront with dual speakers aimed right at you. Smart amplifier tech keeps them within thermal and excursion limits, so you can pump up the volume without harming the cones. The resulting output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear every sound, and you can plug in a headset for even more immersion.
Unified system tuning and personalization
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customize Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles.

Tap into Type-C charging*
USB Power Delivery supports secondary charging from portable power packs, so you don't have to fight for a socket when the battery gets low. Fast-charging support reverses the direction, using up to 3A to quickly rejuvenate smartphones and other devices. If you’re not loading the CPU or discrete GPU with intensive tasks, you can use a smaller adapter up to 65W that lightens your load on the road.
* USB Power Delivery is supported only on the GX531GX, GX531GW, GX531GV and GX531GM. Power pack and 65W adapter sold separately.
* Charging time is based on laptop at idle.
* Unless otherwise stated, performance figures are based on theoretical performance. Actual figures may vary in real-world situations.
Connect all your devices
ROG Zephyrus S has all the connectivity needed for gaming on the go. Type-C™ (USB-C™) ports are available at USB 3.1 Gen 2 and Gen 1 speeds, while Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 2 and USB 2.0 ports are perfect for a gamepad and mouse. HDMI 2.0b at the back supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
