Asus Malaysia just revealed the local availability of one of our favourite gaming laptops, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14. Updated with Nvidia’s RTX 3060 GPU and AMD’s latest Ryzen 9 5900HS processor, the compact 14-inch gaming laptop is even better now. The best part is, there’s no price increase either.
However, unlike the many different configurations available for its predecessor, only one variant of the 2021 Zephyrus G14 is offered in Malaysia. Thankfully, it’s the range-topping RM7,699 model of the gaming laptop that is available here, which comes with the aforementioned RTX 3060 GPU and Ryzen 9 5900HS processor. This price tag is unchanged from last year’s top-of-the-line variant.
Aside from the reasonably powerful GPU and CPU combo, the new Zephyrus G14 also features a fast and sharp 14-inch 2560 x 1440 IPS screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. Previously, the range-topping model last year only had a 60Hz display, so this is certainly a nice upgrade. Of course, the panel is still Pantone Validated panel for colour accuracy.
Other specifications of the updated Zephyrus G14 include 16GB of RAM, a 1TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD, as well as a 76Wh battery. Basically, the same hardware you get with the 2020 model, which is no surprise. After all, even the design is unchanged, so you still get the unique (and customisable) AniMe Matrix LED lighting on the top lid.
The 2021 Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 will be available for purchase in Malaysia next month in April 2021. Retailing at RM7,699, it’s unmistakably positioned as a premium gaming laptop, which it certainly is. If you want to learn more about the laptop, check out our review of the 2020 model right here.
