The ROG Zephyrus G14 is one of the finest laptop computers we saw in 2020, in part due to its exceptional Ryzen 9 4900HS processor. Asus has actually updated the Zephyrus G14 (plus its bigger brother or sister, the Zephyrus G15) with the current chips from AMD and Nvidia.
In addition to the chip upgrades, both designs have new display choices. The G14 now includes a 144Hz panel. Theres a 2K 120Hz model too, which Asus says covers the full DCI-P3 color gamut. The G15 has a 165Hz QHD display screen, also with 100 percent DCIP-3 coverage.
Asus has likewise added brand-new animations to its Anime Matrix (the grid of LED lights that cover the cover of the G14). Theres now a virtual family pet that can live on the display screen and communicate with you. That sounds extremely cute (and also potentially odd-looking to onlookers).
Its inherited the G14s ErgoLift hinge, which lifts the keyboard deck a little off the ground to improve cooling (and easily hide some of the bottom bezel). Asus likewise added an additional microphone (there were 2, and there are now 3).
