    Rog zephyrus performance

    I do own the Zephyrus now for approximately two months. So far its a great gaming machine, but my question is how long will this machine last?


    Is the Zephyrus future proofed?

    mine is running the bios 300 update and i have overclocked the gpu clock plus 210 mhz. I use it with a *Razer Orbweaver Chroma because the keyboard sucks! i have no problems with the speakers.*

    Firstly nothing is future proof. Today's technology will be obsolete in less than a year.
    Its a no brainier that a desktop where one can provide nearly unlimited power and cooling will outperform a portable platform any day of the week, even the larger laptops. The Zephrus marketing segment was to pack as much punch as possible into the smallest footprint possible. You cant expect that to compete with something like an X299 Build with dual 1080Ti machines where the CPUs can be clocked to 5GHz and GPUs clocking over 2GHz. You can only compare it to other ultralights where its a very solid competitor.

    Depends on your needs.

    Custom built PC started in 2009 (College years): final spec before I sold it.

    Intel Core i7 3930k 4.9Ghz 6C/12HT
    32GB DDR3 1866Mhz 9-9-9-21-1 Samsung Wonder Ram rated 1.3v
    256 Vertex 4
    512GB Samsung EVO
    Radeon HD 6970 Crossfire
    EVGA GTX 680 SLI
    Nvidia GTX TITAN (vanilla)
    Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti (Found Edition)
    ASUS PG278Q 144Hz 2560x1440 G-SYNC TN
    Apple Cinema Display 27" IPS 2560x1440
    Crossover 27" IPS 2560x1440
    Logitech G910 Spark
    Logitech G933
    Logitech G240
    Logitech G502
    Full loop custom watercooling with EKWB components.

    The whole built was value is $8000+ CAD

    Now just shy of $4000 CAD

    ASUS Zephyrus G501
    Steelseries Arctis 5
    Steelseries Rival 310 + Paracord Mod
    Corsair MM300


    I would say, gaming experiences & performance on laptop is about similar with 20% less performance. I can still render 4k video from Premiere Pro, ShadowPlay recording is smooth no hiccups. Since it runs on 1080p on the same game I play on my old rig I used to have at 1440p. The FPS is remain unchanged; just a smaller screen to game on with the benefit of IPS display which I love the most.

    Big plus is portability, something I can carry for travel finally and very near desktop performance.

    What I really feel, my entire rig above cramp into this 17mm thin laptop. Currently playing Destiny 2, scoring high with headshots on the scoreboard.
