The ROG Zephyrus G14 is one of the best laptops we saw in 2020, in part because of its exceptional Ryzen 9 4900HS processor. Asus has updated the Zephyrus G14 (plus its bigger sibling, the Zephyrus G15) with the latest chips from AMD and Nvidia.
In addition to the chip upgrades, both models have new display settings. The G14 now comes with a 144Hz panel. There’s also a 2K 120Hz model that Asus says covers the entire DCI-P3 color gamut. The G15 has a 165Hz QHD display, also with 100 percent DCIP-3 coverage.
Asus has also added new animations to its Anime Matrix (the grid with LED lights that cover the lid of the G1
G15 has got a bit of a redesign. It has inherited the G14’s ErgoLift hinge, which lifts the keyboard cover slightly off the ground to improve cooling (and conveniently hide some of the bottom frame). It also has a larger touchpad than its predecessor – 20 percent larger to be exact. Asus also added an extra microphone (there were two and there are now three).
Both models have larger 90Wh batteries (and the G14’s battery life was already pretty good). Asus says you get over 10 hours for a charge from the G15. Both also have enhanced speakers with brand new Dolby Atmos software and two-way AI noise reduction. However, there are still no webcams to see.
The G14 and G15 will be available in Q1 2021. Asus has not yet announced whether prices will change. Current models start at $ 1,049.
