The 2024 Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 and G16 are technically present — if you see “here” to mean listings are unrecorded but sold out. We’ve had a chance to spell hands-on pinch nan 2 laptops and excavation into their specs. But listings uncover 2 cardinal specifications astir nan laptops — for amended and worse.
Starting pinch nan worse: The specs expanse connected nan 2024 G14 and G16 reveals that nan representation is soldered to nan board. Previous Zephyrus designs featured slot-in representation modules, allowing users to upgrade their RAM down nan line. That’s not nan lawsuit pinch these redesigned models, presumably to let Asus to trim down connected nan thickness.
The representation wrong is accelerated — you tin acquisition up to 32GB of LPDDR5X-6400 connected nan Zephyrus G14 and up to 32GB of LPDDR5X-7467 connected nan Zephyrus G16 — but you won’t beryllium capable to upgrade it later on. Some configurations are constricted to 16GB. On nan Zephyrus G14, nan RTX 4060 configuration comes pinch 16GB, while nan RTX 4050 configurations are constricted to 16GB, arsenic well. All different configurations travel pinch 32GB.
Soldered representation isn’t ideal, arsenic moreover nan Razer Blade 14 is capable to connection slotted representation connected astir configurations. Thankfully, for storage, nan 2024 Zephyrus models clasp a PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot, which you tin upgrade pinch further storage.
That’s nan bad news, but there’s immoderate bully news here, too. Pricing isn’t changing. Despite a caller 3K OLED show and an all-aluminum body, Asus is keeping nan pricing of 2024 models identical to 2023 models. The 2023 Zephyrus G14 pinch an RTX 4060 launched for $1,600 — for $1,050 — and nan 2024 exemplary pinch an RTX 4060 , arsenic well. The 2024 exemplary moreover bumps nan retention from 512GB to 1TB.
Similarly, nan 2023 Zephyrus G16 pinch an RTX 4080 launched astatine $2,700, and nan 2024 exemplary comes successful astatine nan aforesaid value — erstwhile again, pinch an OLED surface and aluminum assemblage successful tow.
The truth that Asus kept pricing nan aforesaid is great, but much importantly, it makes these 2 laptops highly competitory pinch Razer. The Zephyrus G14 pinch an RTX 4070 is $2,000, while nan 2024 Razer Blade 14 pinch an identical configuration is $2,700. The 16-inch comparison is similar. The 2024 Razer Blade 16 is $800 much than nan Zephyrus G16 pinch an RTX 4080, though Razer packs successful a faster Intel HX-series processor.
We’ll person to hold until we’ve had a chance to trial nan laptops to spot if they clasp up compared to nan Razer competition. Early impressions are good, however. YouTuber ETA Prime posted a review connected merchandise day, calling nan laptop “insanely good.” Hopefully, we’ll person nan laptops successful soon to springiness them a thorough look.
