Key Features
What's new
Light it up
Featuring a first-of-its-kind AniMe Matrix™ display, the G14 offers deep personalization in a truly unique way. The groundbreaking display is made up of 1,215 individual mini-LEDs that can be used to display custom images and animations that express your creativity and audio visualizations that match music playback. Future updates will enable status notifications that keep you in the loop on new messages, battery life, and more.
Power up
The Zephyrus G14 changes the game for portability by packing unprecedented power into a 14-inch body weighing just 1.6kg. We collaborated with AMD to create special versions of its Ryzen™ 9 4900HS CPUs with lower power consumption and thermals that enable superior performance for ultra-slim laptops. Cutting-edge 7nm process technology puts up to 8 cores and 16 threads on a single chip, allowing the G14 to muscle through heavy workloads. Add up to a GeForce RTX™ 2060 GPU that clocks up to 1285MHz at 65W with ROG Boost, and the G14 moves from fast-paced gaming to content creation in a flash.
Live it up
Gaming laptops typically struggle to stay alive without a massive power brick, but the Zephyrus G14’s energy-efficient AMD Ryzen™ 9 4900HS APU lets you finish up work, watch videos, and stay productive without the weight. USB Power Delivery gives you the flexibility to charge the battery with portable Type-C power packs and adapters, or quickly rejuvenate compatible smartphones and other devices. Say goodbye to fighting over sockets in crowded cafes, and live life untethered.
