ROG Zephyrus M (GM501)
ELEVATED PERFORMANCE. UNCOMPROMISED MOBILITY.
ROG Zephyrus M picks up where its predecessor, ROG Zephyrus, left off — delivering mighty performance in a minute package. It’s powered by up to an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 graphics, and features an IPS-level display with a superfast 144Hz refresh rate, lightning-quick 3ms response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology. The revolutionary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) ensures Zephyrus M runs cool and quiet even at high processor loads. ROG-exclusive software lets you switch between integrated and discrete GPU modes — the Optimus power-saving mode gives you impressive battery life, while the G-SYNC mode lets you experience its graphics prowess in all its glory!
Mighty. Mobile. Modern.
A brushed aluminum finish with a Black Titanium and Plasma Copper color scheme give Zephyrus M a modern and sophisticated look that sets it apart from other gaming laptops. ROG engineers found the sweet spot for maximum cooling performance and effective thermal management. They’ve managed to shoehorn the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, AAS system, and two anti-dust fans into a thin 17.5-19.9mm chassis to ensure Zephyrus M offers exceptional performance during gaming marathons.
ACTIVE AERODYNAMIC SYSTEM (AAS)
The cutting-edge AAS allows Zephyrus M to run cool and quiet without sacrificing performance. Opening the lid reveals an underside vent that leads to a 9mm-high air chamber. Compared to traditional laptop designs, the AAS creates 20% more space for air circulation, increases system air flow by up to 32%, and reduces internal temperatures by up to 20%. A four-quadrant anti-dust design prevents dust particles and dirt from entering the system when the lid is open; while the patented ADC system actively cleans itself by expelling dust particles and dirt through tunnels, preventing build-up in the thermal fins to increase system stability and lifespan. Two high-performance, dual-outlet fans blow air through ultraslim fins, while the unique heat-pipe architecture cools the CPU, GPU, and chipset power components independently.
Perfectly-Machined Cooling Holes
In a perfect example of form following function, Zephyrus M has densely-packed cooling holes above the keyboard to help draw cool air into the system. These neatly-arranged holes above the keyboard are not only functional, but add a modern aesthetic touch to the laptop.
Elevate Your Gaming Experience
Zephyrus M brings gaming desktop-level performance to the gaming laptop scene. It’s powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H processor with 32GB of DDR4 2666MHz dual-channel memory, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics. The innovative AAS ensure additional cooling to cope with demanding gaming marathons. And to house your extensive game library, Zephyrus M features cutting-edge storage, including a 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD.
