The ROG Zephyrus G14 (GA401) is a svelte-looking 14-inch gaming ultrabook that comes equipped with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and AMD's latest and powerful Ryzen mobile processor. Here are five reasons why it should be your next gaming notebook.
IF LOOKS COULD KILL
14 is truly the new inch; the ROG Zephyrus (GA4ol) is only 17.9mm thin and weighs just 1.7kg. The smaller footprint means the gaming notebook can easily slip into conventional laptop bags and backpacks. The lid and its distinctive dot matrix design is crafted out of aluminum by a CNC milling process that puts 6,536 precise perforation in the exterior panel. Which brings us to the next reason.
YOU CAN DO VERY COOL LED PERSONALISATIONS ON THE LID
ROG called it the AniMe Matrix (Neo will be so proud) display, and it uses 1,215 mini LEDs to give garners a new medium to express their individuality. Each LED emits a white glow with 256 levels of brightness control. You can simply import animated GIFs and other graphics, or get your creative juice going by building custom animations frame by frame. These visualisations also react to music and other audio sources, creating a unique platform for content creators including DJs and other artists.
IT FLOATS LIKE A BUTTERFLY
It is not all just looks. The ROG Zephyrus 614 (GA401) is packed with enough firepower inside to get you through most games such as Riot Games' recently launched Valorant and of course, Epic Games' Fortnite. The discrete GPO of choice here is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, which is augmented by the =Wiz IPS-type PANTONE Validated panel. The Zephyrus 614 breaks the trend where smaller laptop screens are not generally available with higher refresh rates, but ROG has worked closely with its panel providers to create new 14-inch displays capable of keeping up.
IT STINGS LIKE A BEE
Also unique and a first to the ROG Zephyrus G14 (GA401) is a special 8 Cores and 16 Threads AMD Ryzen 7 4800NS processor that empowers it to meet demanding workloads, such as video editing, 3D rendering, and even heavy multitasking like gaming and streaming simultaneously. 26GB of fast DDR4-3200 RAM across dual channels also means there is enough headroom for bigger projects too, and the 1TB NVMe SSD offers minimal load times for a huge library of games and apps.
DOLBY ATMOS IS AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE
A leap forward from surround sound, Dolby Atmos provides a competitive advantage for garners by bringing moving audio that flows above and around you with crisper voice and greater depth. In the ROG Zephyrus (GA4m), Dolby Atmos enhances spatial immersion by delivering a breakthrough audio experience with sound that moves all around you in three-dimensional space whether listening via headphones or built-in speakers.
