ROG NEBULA HDR

For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the Zephyrus M16 offers an incredible Nebula HDR Display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 1100 nits of peak brightness for stunning HDR gameplay. The 16-inch, 16:10 Mini LED panel provides incredibly deep blacks for content that jumps right off the screen, whether you’re watching a movie or playing a fast-moving arena shooter. On models without the Mini LED panel, the max brightness peaks at 500 nits, but both panels share QHD resolution and a 240Hz refresh rate, and all models share an incredible 92% screen-to-body ratio.

Explore the matrix

AniMe Matrix™ and Virtual Pet OMNI have both gotten an upgrade. More LEDs mean more animation possibilities, and OMNI returns with a whole host of mini games, like the Slot Machine, Shoot’em Up and Whack-A-Mole. The games will also light up the AniMe Matrix™ as you progress, and getting high scores will unlock more animations for OMNI as he joins you on the desktop.

Endless personalization

Make the Zephyrus M16 uniquely yours with customizable animation options. Display text messages or system notifications, set the matrix to respond in real time to your audio source, or create a custom animation of your very own.
