In 2021 ago, ROG Zephyrus M16 came with innovations that had never existed before in a gaming laptop. As the name implies, the ROG Zephyrus M16 sports a 16-inch screen, a size that was very unusual at the time, especially on gaming laptops. However, the response from gamers was very positive, so now the ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) is here with a variety of interesting improvements for gamers and ordinary users who need a high-performance laptop.
Here are 16 excellent features of the latest ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z).
1. The latest 12th generation Intel Core H Series Processors
ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) uses the latest generation CPU, namely the 12th Gen Intel Core H Series. In its highest variant, ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) is equipped with an Intel Core i9-12900H CPU that uses the configuration of the latest two types of cores, namely Performance Core (P-Core) and Efficient Core (E-Core) .
P-Core is a CPU core that is dedicated to processing tasks that require fast performance such as games and creative applications. While E-Core is here to process most of the light tasks that usually run in the background, such as anti-virus applications to system updates.
The latest core configuration allows processing on the CPU to run more optimally overall so that it can provide a significant increase in performance compared to previous generation CPUs.
2. TGP up to 120W
ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) equipped with an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU and a GeForce RTX 3060 GPU has a TGP (Total Graphic Power) of up to 120W (with ROG Boost). The TGP is much higher than the TGP on the GeForce RTX 3060 GPU in the previous ROG Zephyrus M16 series which was only at 95W (with Dynamic Boost). A larger TGP is directly proportional to an increase in graphics performance. In other words, the latest ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) has better graphics performance than its predecessor.
3. Fast DDR5 RAM
For memory, ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) has been equipped with 16GB dual-channel DDR5 RAM with a speed of 4800MHz. In gaming scenarios, this memory can help increase the minimum framerate so as to minimize the stuttering effect while playing. As for other uses such as video rendering , DDR5 RAM also provides extra speed compared to DDR4.
4. The fastest PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD to date
ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) is equipped with storage in the form of NVMe PCIe Gen4 SSD. The latest generation of storage also provides very high transfer speeds, namely with read speeds of up to 7Gbps. The high-speed SSD makes the process of loading applications, games, and booting faster.
5. Screen with high color accuracy
The display quality of the ROG Zephyrus M16 turns out to be able to accommodate the needs of content creators. ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 uses a QHD resolution screen (2560 x 1600 pixels) with an aspect ratio of 16:10. This screen has also been calibrated, has PANTONE Validated Display certification, and has a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut. This means the screen is capable of accurately reproducing colors making it suitable for use by graphic designers or video editors .
6. ROG Nebula Display
ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) uses a new standard for gaming laptop screens, namely the ROG Nebula Display. ROG Nebula Display is built on the basic needs of gaming, namely speed, brightness, and visual quality.
To be called ROG Nebula Display, the ROG Zephyrus M16 screen must be equipped with a panel with a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut , a brightness level of 500 nits, an Adaptive sync feature , and a response time of 3ms.
Not only that, the ROG Nebula Display screen has also received PANTONE Validated Display certification for color accuracy, TÜV Rheinland for low blue light and anti-flicker, and supports technology from Dolby Vision.
7. Screen optimized for gaming
Considering that this laptop is included in the ranks of gaming laptops, the ROG Zephyrus M16 features a screen with a refresh rate of 165Hz and a response time of 3ms. This means that action games will be rendered more smoothly on their screens. The 16-inch screen size, which is larger than most gaming laptops on the market, also makes playing games more immersive.
8. Sound system supports Dolby Atmos
ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) is equipped with 6 speakers that support Dolby Atmos. So the laptop will be able to reproduce surround sound with object position information from its internal speakers. This means playing games will feel more real with accurate sound origin. The audio used has also been certified by Harman Kardon so the sound quality will be better than most gaming laptops.
9. MUX Switch
This is a special chip that allows the GeForce RTX GPU in ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) to be directly connected to the display system. MUX Switch cuts the flow of data that previously had to pass through the integrated GPU (iGPU) before going to the display system.
The presence of the MUX Switch makes the GPU in ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) able to produce better performance. The increase in performance in various game titles is also very noticeable, which is an average of 10fps higher than previous versions of laptops with the same GPU.
10. ROG Intelligent Cooling
ROG Intelligent Cooling used in ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) comes with updated components. Fans with variable blade thickness technology are one of them. This technology utilizes fan blade structures with different thicknesses in the middle and ends. This structure minimizes the turbulence that often occurs at the ends of the fan blades, allowing the fan to circulate air better.
The amount of airflow in ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) is also very calculated. ASUS even provides extra air cavities on the right and left of the ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) keyboard so that this gaming laptop will not be short of cold air supply when used.
11. Self Cleaning Cooling 2.0
So that dust and other annoying particles are not easily trapped in the heatsink, ASUS provides a feature called Self Cleaning Cooling 2.0 in the ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) cooling system. Self Cleaning Cooling 2.0 uses a special structure in the form of a tunnel that can remove dust directly from the ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) cooling system.
12. Two-way AI Noise-Cancelling Microphone
This microphone, which reduces background noise, works with AI, making the M16 a perfect companion for work or school.
13. Latest 6E WiFi connection
This latest 6E WiFi technology is available up to three frequencies, namely 2.5GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz. The 6GHz frequency provides better and more stable data transfer speeds than 2.5GHz and 5GHz. As a result, gamers will get the best online gaming experience through ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z).
14. Thunderbolt 4 USB Type C . Port
Besides being able to be used to connect professional-grade devices such as network adapters or high-speed storage, the Thunderbolt 4 port which has a data transfer speed of up to 40Gbps can also be used as a display port. In other words, ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU603Z) can be connected to monitors up to 8K resolution via the Thunderbolt 4 port.
15. HD IR webcam
This gaming laptop webcam supports facial recognition or facial recognition through Windows Hello. The HD resolution also makes it reliable when meeting or studying online.
16. Relatively compact body design
Thanks to super narrow bezel technology or a super thin frame, ROG Zephyrus M16 is able to deliver a 16-inch screen in dimensions similar to a laptop with a 15-inch screen. That way, you can enjoy games more comfortably and still be able to carry around this laptop with ease.
