Republic of Gamers (ROG) continues to receive accolades for the design and execution of excellent gaming laptops. For 2021, media outlets have recognized the Zephyrus S17, G14, G15 and Duo 15 SE, as well as the Strix SCAR 17, as fantastic gaming laptops.
The ultraportable ROG Zephyrus G14 shines brightly
Featuring the unique and iconic AniMe Matrix LED panel, the ROG Zephyrus G14 is recognizable at a glance. Packing an AMD Ryzen 5900HS processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU in a compact 14-inch chassis, the G14 is equipped to handle the most demanding games and productivity workloads while retaining impressive battery life. Tom’s Guide, in its Best laptops for video editing in 2021 guide, notes: “This gaming laptop is powerful enough to handle big edit jobs yet svelte enough to throw in a bag and forget about, but the real reason it tops this list is its excellent 11-hour battery life.” Tom’s Guide went on to name the ROG Zephyrus G14 as one of “The best Windows laptops in 2021”.
The G14 has also impressed with its exterior design. Intended to be used in all scenarios, “For those looking for something slim and attractive, our pick is the ROG Zephyrus G14,” said Tom’s Hardware. “As far as gaming laptops go, the Zephyrus is unassuming in either white or gray with minimalist stylings.”
The ROG Zephyrus G15 recognized as one of the best gaming laptops of 2021
When a more immersive experience is the priority, the 15-inch ROG Zephyrus G15 flexes its muscles. Featuring up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, this machine has serious gaming credentials. Paired with a crystal-clear QHD 165 Hz / 3 ms panel, the G15 can power exceptional gaming experiences. “The ROG Zephyrus line has produced some of the best gaming laptops out there, and the new ROG Zephyrus G15 is no exception,” said TechRadar in its best gaming laptops 2021 roundup.
Laptop Mag also recognized that the G15 provides this level of performance while maintaining all day battery endurance. “The ROG Zephyrus G15 totes around some of the most powerful components you can get right now,” the publication declared. “Almost every part of this machine is surprisingly great and well worth the money you’ll be paying. Plus, it lasted 8 hours and 6 minutes on the Laptop Mag battery test, crushing the premium gaming laptop average. Regardless, the Zephyrus G15 is one of the few best gaming laptops that you can buy with an RTX 3070 GPU.”
Defy convention with the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE
With its innovative ROG ScreenPad Plus secondary display, the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE continued to push the boundary of what is possible with a gaming laptop. Cutting-edge cooling empowers the latest AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. A choice between ultrafast 300 Hz / 3 ms or high-res 4K 120 Hz / 3 ms gaming panels lets gamers tailor their systems for pro-level esports or content creation.
“[The] latest ROG Zephyrus Duo uses AMD’s top-end Ryzen 9 5900HX paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 for powerful results, while using a second screen that lifts up to provide more ventilation to improve cooling,” said Tom’s Hardware, which named it one of the best gaming laptops of 2021.
Step above the competition with the ROG Zephyrus S17
Refinement, technological innovation and power define the Zephyrus S17. Equipped with up to an Intel Core i9-11900H CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU, the S17 has the power and cooling to dominate any battlefield. “If you’re going all out for an elite gaming laptop, it’s almost impossible to go wrong with the new ROG Zephyrus S17,” said PCMag.com in its review of the best 17-inch laptops for 2021.
Game on with the ROG Strix SCAR 17
The Strix SCAR 17 is the pinnacle of gaming power. Featuring a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU and GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU, this machine is paired with up to a FHD 360 Hz or QHD 165 Hz display for incredibly smooth visuals at either resolution. For users that demand the very best gaming performance, the SCAR 17 answers the call. “The ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 is another laptop that shines the most at the top-end of the spectrum,” said TechRadar.
“If you want to play esports like a professional, you’ll want a laptop with the fastest screen you can find,” said Tom’s Hardware in its guide to the best gaming laptops of 2021. “The ASUS ROG Strix Scar G733 offers a 360 Hz refresh rate on its FHD screen and has top-end components to power esports titles to get to frame rates that can actually use it.”
