ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announces its latest lineup of laptops, powered by the latest CPUs and GPUs from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA at CES 2023. The ROG Strix series will feature new models with enlarged screens and improved cooling. The new Zephyrus M16 will sport an AniMe Matrix display, and the Flow X13 and XG Mobile have been upgraded with latest hardware.
All New CPUs and GPUs
For 2023, Republic of Gamers has included the latest hardware, such as 13th Gen Intel processors, AMD Ryzen Zen 4 processors, and GeForce RTX 40 Series laptop GPUs to take laptop gaming performance to the next level.
Improved Nebula Displays and Intelligent Cooling
ROG is bringing Nebula Displays to more models, and in more form factors. In addition, ROG has further refined its Intelligent Cooling technology, carefully
balancing cooling performance with acoustics. In 2023, ROG has brought full-width heatsinks and Tri-Fan Technology to more laptops, including the Zephyrus M16, while the Strix 16-inch and 18-inch models have an extra-thick variant of the design.
New ROG Strix Lineup
The Strix SCAR 16 and 18 have been renamed, thanks to a chassis redesign that
accommodates the larger 16-inch and 18-inch 16:10 aspect-ratio screens. The 16-inch model can even be equipped with ROG’s new QHD, 240Hz Nebula HDR display with Mini LED technology. The cooling performance of this new chassis has also been improved, allowing more headroom for the CPU and GPU to boost for maximum framerates.
The Strix SCAR 16 and 18 come equipped with Intel’s top-of-the-line 13th Gen Intel Core i9 13980HX processor, with 8 Performance-cores and 16 Efficient-cores, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU at 175 W.
The new Strix G16 and Strix G18 are equipped with the same 13th Gen Intel Core i9 13980HX processor, and can be configured with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU. The Strix G17 and Strix SCAR 17 have both been refreshed AMD’s Ryzen ™ Zen 4 processor as well.
Refreshed ROG Zephyrus Thin-And-Light Laptops
Built for gamers and creators alike, the ultra-sleek ROG Zephyrus M16 has been redesigned, retaining a thin-and-light design but boasting an improved cooling system featuring Tri-Fan Technology and full-width heatsink. The 2023 Zephyrus M16 could run 25 watts higher compared to last year’s model — providing even more power to the Intel Core i9 13900H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU. The 2023 Zephyrus M16 is also the first 16-inch device equipped with ROG’s iconic AniMe Matrix LED lighting array, allowing gamers to show off their creativity and unique flair wherever they are. The M16’s display has also been upgraded to a 16-inch, QHD Nebula HDR Display with Mini-LED technology.
The brand-new Zephyrus G16 joins the lineup and boasts an Intel Core i9 13900H CPU and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU with a MUX Switch and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus.
The Zephyrus G14 features brand new internals as well, including up to an AMD Ryzen ™ Zen 4 CPU and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU with a MUX Switch and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus. Even more impressive, the G14 proudly introduces ROG’s first 14-inch Nebula HDR display, with 504 dimming zones, 600 nits of peak brightness and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
Finally, the Zephyrus Duo 16 has been upgraded with even more power, featuring an AMD Ryzen Zen 4 processor with 16 cores and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU with a MUX Switch.
ROG Flow Lineup
The 2023 Flow X13 now features up to an AMD Ryzen Zen 4 processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU. The Flow X13 comes equipped with up to 32 GB of ultrafast LPDDR5 RAM, which in addition to boasting a 50% faster data rate than last year’s model also uses 18% less power than LPDDR4, significantly boosting the battery life.
This year, the GPU of the Flow Z13 was upgraded with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX
4060 Laptop GPU, with a TGP of up to 65 W — a 62% increase compared to the previous generation Z13.
This year, the ROG Flow X16 has gotten new internals, with up to a new Intel Core i9 13900H processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU with a MUX Switch and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus.
Lastly, the 2023 Flow family is joined by a brand-new XG Mobile, this time with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU with a maximum TGP of 175 W. Unlike other
external graphics solutions, which are big and bulky, the compact XG Mobile provides loads of extra ports as well as a significant boost in graphical horsepower, while being easily portable for travel and able to quickly dock and transform a Flow machine into a desktop-class experience anywhere.
