Taiwanese technology major ASUS on Wednesday announced the launch of ‘Republic of Gamers’ (ROG) ‘Zephyrus’ — the world’s slimmest gaming laptop — in India at Rs 2,99,990. The laptop would be officially unveiled in India at an event in Bengaluru on the sidelines of the ‘ROG’ Masters South Asia ‘finale’ on August 20. The laptop is powered by the latest NVIDIA ‘GeForce’ GTX 1080 graphics and Intel’s latest Core i7 chipset.
“‘ROG’ aims to create laptops that are slimmer, cooler, quieter and more powerful than ever before — to fully address the needs of today’s highly mobile gamers. ‘Zephyrus’ is the thinnest, lightest and the most powerful gaming laptop at the moment,” said Peter Chang, Regional Head-South Asia and Country Manager-ASUS India, in a statement. Other specifications include a ROG-exclusive ‘Active Aerodynamic System’ (AAS) which is a specially designed cooling system. Weighing 2.24kg, the laptop features a 15.6-inch full-HD display with 1080×1920 pixel resolution.
The device also comes with ‘G-Sync’ compatible display, which the company claims can cover 110 per cent of the sRGB colour gamut. ASUS ‘Zephyrus’ also features 24GB RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. Other features include a keyboard that has a new feature called ROG ‘Aura’ which enables users to customise dynamic light effects on WASD and QWER keys.
