Smaller. Faster. Lighter.

Powerfully versatile for serious work and play, the ROG Zephyrus S15 redefines the bounds of Windows 10 ultra-slim gaming. Our Intelligent Cooling system augmented with liquid metal unleashes the full potential of the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU, while an NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ GPU provides the power to saturate the ultrafast 300Hz/3ms PANTONE® Validated display. Its adaptability shines with a Thunderbolt™ 3 port that connects to external displays, high-speed storage, and more on the go, as well as G-SYNC™ and Optimus modes that give you the freedom to shift between fluid gameplay and better battery life.

DESIGN

SLEEK, STRONG, AND ULTRA-SLIM

A reinforced metal chassis keeps the Zephyrus S15 resilient against everyday use. At 18.9mm thin and under 2kg, this powerhouse is 25% thinner and 42% lighter than typical 15’’ gaming laptops. But it refuses to compromise between work and play, delivering dynamic performance and refined styling that’s truly the best of both worlds.

STRENGTH WITHOUT THE WEIGHT

Forged from a special magnesium-aluminum alloy, the chassis is machined down to exceptional thinness while maintaining the strength and durability needed for everyday use.

SHAPED FOR STIFFNESS

Honeycomb reinforcements beneath the palm rest strengthen a highly trafficked area. The die-cast structure resists flexing while adding minimal material and weight.

FEWER FINGERPRINTS

Soft-touch paint covers the palm rest, minimizing smudges and fingerprints with a thin coating that helps sustain the sleek styling and subtle sparkle through to the end of the day.

* Soft-touch paint is only available on Brushed Black models.

SUBTLE YET STRIKING

The streamlined design stuns in its details. Contrasting brush finishes slice across the lid, dovetailing precisely with the strategic cut that frees airflow out the back. Subtle diamond cuts chamfer the exterior edges and dig deeper near the touchpad to let you open the laptop effortlessly with one finger.

PERFORMANCE

LIGHTWEIGHT FORM. HEAVYWEIGHT PERFORMANCE.

Fusing the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU with revolutionary GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ graphics, the ROG Zephyrus S15 puts powerhouse performance in a compact package. ROG Boost clocks the GPU up to 1330MHz at 90W in Turbo mode to enable stunning realism, while the CPU offers speed and versatility for serious productivity and content creation. Up to 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM* and 1TB of RAID 0 SSD storage lets you cut through heavy multitasking and enjoy faster load times for every game and app that comes your way.

COOLING

INTELLIGENT COOLING WITH LIQUID METAL

Our 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 the Zephyrus S15, our innovative Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) opens additional vents to increase airflow by 22%, while liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU amplifies clock speeds while you work. Your overall system longevity is also sustained by a self-cleaning thermal module that ejects dust and prevents build-up. ROG Armoury Crate software seamlessly switches between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task.

AAS BREATHES DEEPER

Slim chassis leave limited space for airflow, which can compromise performance for marathon gaming sessions, so our innovative Active Aerodynamic System opens a 7mm vent that helps increase airflow by 22%. n-Blade fans draw cool air in from the expanding intake in the base and from vents perforating the panel above the keyboard. Exhaust is pumped through four outlets in the edges of the chassis, each one shaped to separate warm outflow from the layer of cool air flowing into the AAS.

LIQUID METAL KEEPS CPUS COOLER

Liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly reduces CPU temperatures by up to 10°C* compared to standard thermal paste. The right amount must be applied meticulously for the best results, so we commissioned custom equipment that automates the process with mechanical precision. The block that sits on the CPU also has a special internal fence that prevents liquid metal from leaking out over time.

* Unless otherwise stated, figures are based on theoretical performance. Actual figures may vary in real-world situations.

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING COVERAGE

Snaking beneath the surface sit 6 heatpipes to pull heat away from the CPU, the GPU, and the circuitry supplying them with power. Reducing the temperature of these components helps improve long-term stability and reliability. The CPU and GPU share pipes connected to dual heatsinks at the back, and each chip has a dedicated pipe to its own heatsink in the flanks. This layout ensures efficient cooling for any workload, including those that light up only one of the two chips.

MORE ULTRATHIN FINS

Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks in the flanks. Each one is lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm, allowing higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. There are 205 heatsink fins totaling 110,000mm2 of surface area, and the ones on the sides are angled slightly toward the back to direct warm air away from your mousing hand.

SELF-CLEANING COOLING SYSTEM

Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation, so our engineers designed a special anti-dust tunnel that catches and channels particles outside the chassis to prevent them from collecting on the fins. This self-cleaning system helps ensure consistent cooling performance over time, which improves long-term stability and overall reliability.

MORE BLADES, BETTER AIRFLOW

Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of the n-Blade fans to maximize airflow. The carefully shaped aluminum intake shrouds use curved edges and raised guides to help the fans draw in more air. Once inside, it’s blasted toward the heatsinks by liquid-crystal-polymer blades that are 33% thinner than conventional designs yet still strong enough to spin at high RPMs. The Zephyrus S15 matches our highest blade density with 83 per fan, improving airflow by up to 15%.

THE RIGHT MODE FOR THE MOMENT

Gaming laptops are versatile enough to tackle a range of tasks, but requirements vary wildly, so Intelligent Cooling adapts accordingly. It automatically switches between operating modes that optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed. Performance mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment.
