New ASUS Gaming Laptops in 2023 are CRAZY!


The new video gaming laptop computers coming from ASUS this year are insane! Below are all the brand-new versions and also updates being available in 2023! To begin with is the new Zephyrus G16, which changes the popular Zephyrus G15 from in 2014. As you can most likely inform by the name, it now has a larger 16 inch display with a 16:10 aspect proportion, which honestly I assume is regarding time. In 2015, the G15 and also M16 were primarily the exact same chassis, yet the AMD based G15 simply had less display space compared to the Intel based M16. I never ever understood why the G15 got a smaller display compared to the M16, despite the fact that they utilized the very same laptop body, so this is a good update. Unlike last year’s Zephyrus G15, this year’s Zephyrus G16 relocates away from AMD Ryzen processors to Intel 13th gen processors instead. Going right as much as the Core i9-13900H with 14 cores and 20 strings. It additionally rises to Nvidia’s RTX 4070 graphics with a 120 watt power limit. So with a bigger 16 inch screen and also now an Intel processor, the new G16 appears a whole lot like the M16. Then what did they do to the M16? Well, the M16 has in fact obtained a whole brand-new framework style this year and it goes right up to Nvidia’s brand-new top-end RTX 4090 with a 145 watt max power limitation – so contrasted to the Zephyrus G16, the brand-new Zephyrus M16 has both a greater optimum GPU as well as a greater optimum GPU power restriction. The Zephyrus G16 just has one memory slot for upgrades with some RAM soldered to the motherboard, which is what they finished with in 2014’s Zephyrus models too. The brand-new

Zephyrus M16 ultimately has two memory ports, and this is since the brand-new M16 has its brand-new framework layout. While the G16 seems to be using in 2014’s M16 chassis, which was limited to 1 memory slot. However, the physical size of the G16 as well as the M16 this year are very close with each other, so it sort of sucks that the G16 does not also obtain both memory ports. I mean it’s most likely less costly and easier for ASUS to use last year’s M16 framework as the G16 this year. By recycling the existing layout it most likely will not cost as much contrasted to the brand-new M16, since that M16 is a higher tier product compared to the G16. Anyway this implies the G16 maxes out at 48 gigs of memory while the M16 goes right approximately 64 jobs. The M16 additionally has the alternative of a 2560 by 1600 240Hz Mini-LED display with G-Sync, while the cheaper G16 does not provide a Mini-LED alternative. Both laptop computers still have a MUX switch simply like in 2014, however this year they’ve also been updated to include Nvidia’s advanced optimus. Which indicates the adjustment between the GPUs is now automatic and you do not have to by hand reboot. The ports on the G16 coincide as last year’s M16 with one exception, the brand-new G16 has HDMI 2.1 support, so it can support a 4K 144Hz monitor

currently rather than maxing out at 4K 60Hz. Unfortunately I do not have any shots of the brand-new M16’s ports, yet based on the spec sheet it’s virtually obtained the like the G16, however the M16 appears to be missing ethernet. Like the smaller G14, this year’s M16 likewise obtains the option of a computer animated cover, which does make the laptop a little thicker. In addition to a greater feasible optimum GPU with greater power limit, more memory upgrade alternatives and Mini-LED display, the new M16 also has a third fan inside. Just like ASUS’s Flow X16 in 2014, which’s why the M16 has the ability to support higher tier GPUs as well as greater power limitations contrasted to the G16. There’s simply extra cooling ability. The smaller 14 inch Zephyrus G14 has also been upgraded this year, with AMD’s most current Ryzen 8 core 16 thread laptop processors and approximately Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics, which simply appears outrageous. In 2015’s G14 was all AMD with Radeon graphics, however in 2023, ASUS are going back to Nvidia graphics, just like the G14 originally had. The RTX 4090, 4080, 4070 and also 4060 arrangements of the Zephyrus G14 need to all have a maximum 125 watt power restriction. While not as much contrasted to larger pc gaming laptops with even more air conditioning that can boost the power restricts greater, I’m still expecting this to do extremely well for a 14 inch design. Absolutely make sure that you’re subscribed for my upcoming evaluations as well as pc gaming standards! To make things confusing though, it appears like the G14 is mosting likely to utilize both Zen 3 and also Zen 4 processors, hich just have slightly different product names. To be reasonable, this isn’t truly ASUS’s fault. They’re simply using the

processors that AMD are providing. I’ll have a whole discussion concerning it in my AMD video coming tomorrow. Like the G16, there’s still just one memory slot inside with some memory soldered to the motherboard. Yet I think that’s a little bit more practical in a 14 inch laptop computer. The G14 additionally obtains a new QHD+ Mini-LED 165Hz screen alternative in addition to more affordable QHD+ 165Hz or FHD+ 144Hz. Only the QHD+ displays obtain G-Sync, yet all 3 panel options will sustain innovative optimus, which is additionally new to the G14 this year. Now you can obtain either the Mini-LED screen or the computer animated lid on the G14, but not both, since each one boosts the density. this is not a restriction with the new M16 design, which can have both the Mini-LED screen as well as the computer animated lid with each other. Or just one or the other, or neither, it’s your option. The Zephyrus Duo 16 likewise gets an upgrade to AMD’s latest Zen 4 cpus. Regrettably I can not share with you what AMD has coming till tomorrow, so remain tuned for that video clip, yet contrasted to the Ryzen 9 6900HX discovered in last year’s Duo 16 … Well, think double … The other large change to the Duo 16 is that the graphics now increase to RTX 4090, yet unlike the smaller G14, there’s a higher 165 watt power limitation. More performance. Alright, allowed’s obtain into the Strix G and also Strix Scar gaming laptop computers. These are quite similar to each various other, but the Strix G is a reduced rate compared to the Scar, which has some extras. This year we’re getting new 16 and also even 18 inch

models of the Strix G and also Strix Scar laptops with taller 16:10 displays, so a lot more upright screen room contrasted to 16:9. As well as even with the alternative of Mini-LED. The reduced rate Strix G maxes out with Nvidia RTX 4080 graphics, while the higher tier Scar rises to RTX 4090, though both have an optimum 175 watt power restriction and up to Intel 13th gen HX processor, so 24 cores as well as 32 threads of CPU power. Both the 16 and also 18 inch designs likewise make use of Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme fluid metal on both the CPU and GPU to maximize efficiency. And also Conductonaut Extreme is higher quality compared to the other fluid metal that ASUS have actually been using. It does set you back more, however thinking about that it can even more lower temperatures by 5 levels Celsius compared to the various other fluid metal, it sort of makes good sense to utilize in higher end versions to obtain maximum efficiency. Last year in 2022, this was only discovered on the CPU of the Zephyrus Duo 16, Scar 15 and also Scar 17, however this year we’re seeing it on the GPU. I’ve likewise reached state, it’s actually amazing that ASUS publishes this page defining what thermal interface product is utilized for both CPU and GPU. The majority of other business will certainly simply keep you guessing. Again similar to the various other laptops, not only do these still have a MUX button just like in 2014, but they likewise obtain upgraded to include innovative

optimus. Both the Strix G and Strix Scar have an RGB light bar on the front. ASUS informs me that they have actually updated it so the lower panel does not have bow wires linking to the motherboard anymore. I assume that this is a welcome and also seriously underrated change. I have actually personally damaged the RGB on a Mark laptop due to the fact that I forgot the cable televisions when I mosted likely to manage the lower panel, as well as if I’ve done it, I wonder how several individuals that have actually acquired that laptop computer have done it. This year’s designs likewise now have a web cam above the screen, something that they have actually been missing previously. Something else that’s distinction with the Strix G and also Mark 16 and 18 models is that they have a 3rd follower inside, easily Zephyrus M16. A drawback of this is that simply like last year’s X16, which initially presented the tri-fan style, it suggests the entire rear of the laptop computer ends up being a heatsink, so rear ports are no more feasible. Here we can see the power input, ethernet and also HDMI ports are currently left wing, whereas last year those were all out of the method and on the back. On the plus side, at the very least we’re getting even more RGB illumination on the back! Currently in between those 16 and also 18 inch versions we do have a 17 inch version of the Strix G and Mark, however it’s still utilizing the older chassis style from in 2015, so regrettably that does still have those bow wires for the RGB light bar. However this additionally suggests that the

Mark 17 has a 16:9 screen rather than 16:10 like the brand-new 16 and 18 inch variations. And the 17 inch version is likewise utilizing AMD’s Zen 4 processors with as much as Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics. At the very least for the Scar anyway, due to the fact that the Strix G17 increases to RTX 4070. Again, Strix G is reduced tier compared to the Mark. Yep, this year, just the 17 inch designs use AMD cpus. The Strix G17 and Mark 17 still have the ports on the back, as once more that’s in 2015’s design. Successive is the new TUF A16 Benefit Edition, an all AMD gaming laptop with both Ryzen processors as well as Radeon graphics, as well as a MUX button as well as a 120 watt GPU power restriction. I have actually been told by ASUS that the new A16 chassis in fact gets the very same GPU power limitation as the smaller A15 in the Nvidia alternatives, which goes up to 140 watts. It’s simply that Nvidia and AMD procedure power in different ways, so Nvidia claims 140 yet AMD claims 120. In terms of real power that’s being drawn from the wall surface, it must be the exact same. Anyhow that Radeon GPU powers the 16 inch display with FreeSync Costs, with either a 2560 by 1600 240Hz panel, or less costly 1920 by 1200 165Hz panel. Clearly the reduced resolution panel will be easier to run games at greater FPS since less pixels is less demanding on the GPU. However it also has a slower action time, that’s the tradeoff. Available with the new Sandstorm shade, or black anodized light weight aluminum surfaces, this is a new laptop I can not wait to

test! In 2014 in 2022 I covered 37 different laptops, and also just one of those had AMD Radeon graphics, which was the Zephyrus G14 near the beginning of the year. So yeah, I really can’t wait to see what AMD’s next gen RDNA 3 can do in a laptop. Unlike in 2014’s A15, the A16 supports USB Type-C charging. As well as this Type-C charging upgrade has actually also involved this year’s ASUS TUF A15, A17, F15 and F17. And all 4 of those laptops have actually likewise been updated this year with either AMD’s brand-new Zen 4 cpus for the A series, or Intel’s 13th gen for the F series. Both those laptop computers are basically the exact same, it’s just the A ones are AMD while the F ones are Intel. I do not truly understand just how F represents Intel. Perhaps they must have called them the I15 as well as I17 … Anyhow like all the various other laptops discussed, these still do have the MUX button that was presented to them in 2014. However surprisingly, these additionally get refreshed with innovative optimus this year. So almost precisely a year ago when I made this CES video for ASUS I was speaking about exactly how they were adding the MUX switch to practically each and every single gaming laptop computer, and also currently this year it looks like they’re taking that to the next degree and providing practically whatever advanced optimus. As well as I truthfully wasn’t expecting to see that attribute make its way down to the reduced budget friendly TUF series.
But hey, here we are, 2023 looking rather good. Apparently the followers are boosted also, ASUS are stating this leads to 13% even more air

movement contrasted to last gen, while additionally being quieter. The ASUS Flow collection consisting of the Z13 tablet computer, X13 and also X16 2-in-1 makers have likewise been refreshed with the latest CPUs and also GPUs. The GPU in the smallest Circulation Z13 tablet now rises to RTX 4060 with a 65 watt power limitation, a good boost over the 40 watt RTX 3050 Ti that it came with last year. Along with Intel Core i9-13900H CPU, that’s a great deal of power in a 13 inch gadget! There’s additionally a brand-new QHD+ 165Hz display with faster reaction time, while the entire machine also weighs a bit much less. Kind of crucial for a gadget that’s clearly focused on transportability. It’s likewise good that they’ve obtained the QHD display choice currently. In 2014 they did either FullHD or UHD (4K), due to the fact that there just weren’t any type of other high refresh 13 inch options on the market. ASUS doesn’t produce the display panels, at least not as much as I’m mindful, so they can just use what’s really available out there. Or I suppose they may be able to pay those companies a lot of cash in order to create a custom display for them. Now I still think QHD+ is probably an excessive

resolution at 13 inches, but I believe it replaces the 4K choice that they had last year, so I’m not complaining. The Circulation X13 additionally obtains a boost from RTX 3050 Ti graphics at 40 watts to a 4070 with 60 watts, but again do not worry there will additionally be cheaper options with lower specced CPUs as well as GPUs as well. It’s type of interesting that the X13 maxes out at RTX 4070 graphics while the Z13 maxes out at 4060 graphics. Both are still 13 inch gadgets, and I have actually been told that the Z13 obviously has more thermal clearance. Maybe we’ll see the 4070 in future …? The X13 is still using an 8 core AMD CPU, but with Zen 4 currently there’s going to be a lot more performance, as well as it additionally gets the same QHD+ 165Hz display update as the Z13, however there’s still a cheaper 1080p 120Hz alternative. I think it’s excellent that they still provide it keeping that less expensive display alternative, since if you’re mosting likely to buy the XG Mobile eGPU and link it to that, you’re possibly mosting likely to be utilizing an outside screen. So there’s no factor spending additional money to get the Z13 screen looking excellent if you’re simply mosting likely to utilize a different screen anyhow. It’s all concerning having options. Like I always say, customer choice is constantly best! Oh and the X13’s battery likewise gets 21% bigger, going from 62Wh to 75Wh. Which goes over considering it in fact gets smaller sized as well as lighter this year, while also boosting the touchpad dimension by 56% compared to the 2022

variation, as the key-board gets pushed better back, raising the hand remainder area as well. The Type-C charger additionally obtains improved from 100 watts approximately 130 watts this year with both the Z13 as well as X13, and that’s to accommodate those higher GPU power restrictions. Evidently the brand-new battery charger is just a little larger and also larger contrasted to in 2014, so possibly worth it to get the extra efficiency. Like the Zephyrus G16 previously, the ASUS Circulation X16 leaves AMD this generation and also goes to an Intel 13th gen CPU, in addition to a slightly greater GPU power limit. I do not recognize without a doubt why this is happening, however if I needed to presume it’s probably an AMD supply issue. Other firms like Dell have already introduced that their gaming laptops with Intel CPU as well as Nvidia graphics are can be found in Q1 this year. However then their AMD variations are coming in Q2, so potentially up to 3 months later on. It simply seems like AMD equipment is coming later on and ASUS do not desire to stick about and wait for it. That’s just my assumption though! For one reason or another, the X16 “just” goes up to RTX 4070 graphics

with a 130 watt power limit. I imply, yeah, ok, that probably destroys last year’s X16 with a 125 watt power limitation and RTX 3070 Ti graphics. However it’s just a little bit strange that the very same tier RTX 4070 is discovered in the 13 inch X13. Approved that a person does have half the power limit, so the X16 will undoubtedly perform much far better. The X16’s Mini-LED touchscreen has also enhanced from 165Hz to 240Hz, and it obtains brighter with dual the dimming zones. The screens on all 3 Flow gadgets have actually been updated with Gorilla Glass DXC, that makes the screens a bit more matte. Currently it’s not as matte compared to, state, an IPS panel. It’s implied to still be shiny, somewhere in between. And also the special coating is suggested to reduce visible fingerprints and reflections while still providing clear and also sharp visuals that individuals have pertained to like from shiny displays. As well as that coating likewise obtains related to the lower second screen on the Zephyrus Duo 16, to make sure that ought to look a little bit a lot more glossy currently compared to matte like before. All three of these Flow series tools can still make use of ASUS’s outside graphics remedy, the XG Mobile, which has actually also been freshened this year with Nvidia’s RTX 4090 mobile GPU, however there might be extra choices

coming later. The brand-new 4090 XG Mobile still makes use of PCIe Gen 3 for the connection, so it’s in reverse suitable with all previous Flow tools, specifically as ASUS assured, 2 years ago I think it was? When they initially presented it. So if you’ve obtained the very first gen 2021 X13 as an example, you ought to have the ability to hook up the 4090 to it. And I assume it’s wonderful that ASUS have maintained this promise and kept the XG Mobile upgradability coming. They didn’t just abandon it, like we’ve seen numerous various other firms do at any time they present some type of GPU upgrade such as this. I seriously can’t wait to evaluate out a 4090 XG Mobile with a 13 inch tablet computer, that just seems crazy! So once again, make certain you’re subscribed.
As for availability on all this new things, it will certainly depend on the details laptop as well as the specifications. I’ve been told that we’re looking at the initial models ending up being available in mid February this year. ASUS have plenty much more laptop computers appearing this year, you can find out more in this video clip over right here next. Or check out here if you want to see every one of the brand-new gaming laptop computers coming out in 2023! There are lots of various other exciting adjustments that you would like to know regarding!
