2019 ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX

After redefining ultra-slim gaming laptops with the original Zephyrus, ROG brings hardcore gaming to an even thinner design framed by super-narrow bezels. ROG Zephyrus S uses innovative engineering to cool its GeForce RTX™ 2080 and an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, so you can immerse yourself in its no-compromise 144Hz/3ms display.

THE NEW STANDARD FOR ULTRAPORTABLE GAMING

Clever design and expert craftsmanship are required to put high-end chips into the slimmest gaming laptop ever. At just 15.35~16.15mm thin with a GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU and an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX is portable but powerful enough for life on the go. In one fluid motion of hidden scissor-door hinges, it transforms from svelte sidekick to gaming powerhouse.

FINISHED TO PERFECTION

The metal body is a symphony of clean lines and refined design. Brush strokes slash the lid, diamond cuts chamfer the edges, and the iconic logo glows ROG red. Two-stage anodising contrasts stealthy surfaces with gleaming accents, echoing distinctive Zephyrus styling that looks as cutting-edge as the hardware inside.

SUPER NARROW BEZELS

While the slender bezels surrounding the display melt away, they also make the chassis more compact. ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX is 19mm narrower than its predecessor despite having the same 15.6” screen size. The smaller footprint fits more comfortably into crowded bags and tight spaces, and it also leaves more room for your mousing hand.

SHRINKING BEZELS WITHOUT SACRIFICING SPEED

Super-narrow bezels draw you deeper into the action on the 144Hz IPS-level display. The high refresh rate makes gameplay smoother and lowers input lag, while the 3ms gray-to-gray response time produces sharper visuals with no blurring. With the full sRGB colour gamut and wide viewing angles, ROG Zephyrus S blends speed and beauty without compromise.

POTENT PERFORMANCE RIVALS DESKTOPS

Don’t be fooled by its lithe body; ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX has ample power for AAA games, VR experiences, and serious creative work. The six-core 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor delivers desktop-like performance, while the all-new NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU enables photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. The GPU boosts up to 1330MHz at 90W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6151MHz, and both can be overclocked. An NVMe SSD up to 1TB offers speedy storage for your growing game library and professional portfolio.

POWERFUL SIX-CORE CPU

Zephyrus S features an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 -8750H processor. Its six cores and 12 threads via Hyper-Threading provide 50% more cores than the last generation, allowing effortless gaming with simultaneous recording and live-streaming. Intel Speed Shift and Turbo Boost balance power and efficiency, pushing the processor up to 4GHz for quad-core loads and 3.9GHz with all six at full throttle.

TURING-POWERED GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGY

Available with up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics, ROG Zephyrus S is on the leading edge of GPU technology. The revolutionary NVIDIA Turing™ architecture mixes traditional CUDA cores for programmable shading with RT cores for ray tracing and Tensor cores for AI. Together, they enable more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in real time to make games more immersive.

HIGH-SPEED HYPERDRIVE STORAGE

Games, applications, and large files load at warp speed on the NVM Express® (NVMe®) SSD. ROG HyperDrive storage uses up to four* PCI Express® (PCIe®) lanes to achieve amazing throughput. Up to 1TB of storage leaves loads of space to install everything you might want to play, with plenty of room left for the rest of your life.

DUAL-CHANNEL DDR4 MEMORY

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX uses DDR4 memory optimised for high speed and low power consumption. The dual-channel config is clocked at 2666MHz, yielding an 11% performance increase over 2400MHz RAM. With up to 24GB under the hood, there’s enough RAM to multitask while gaming.

COOL UNDER PRESSURE

The unique ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) expands to help Zephyrus S sustain high GPU clocks with demanding games. Lifting the lid opens a 5-mm intake that increases airflow by up to 22% compared to traditional designs. Anti-dust tunnels keep the four heatsinks clean to preserve cooling performance and system stability as the hours add up.

COMPREHENSIVE COOLING COVERAGE

Five heatpipes snake beneath the surface to pull heat away from not only the CPU and GPU, but also the circuitry supplying them with power. This design keeps the power components under 80°C, which helps improve long-term reliability. The CPU and GPU connect to both shared and dedicated heatsinks to ensure efficient cooling for any workload.

MORE ULTRA-THIN FINS

Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks in the flanks. Each one is lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm, allowing higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. There are 250 heatsink fins totaling 110,000mm2 of surface area, and the ones on the sides are angled slightly toward the back to direct warm air away from your mousing hand.

SELF-CLEANING COOLING SYSTEM

Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation, so our engineers designed a special anti-dust tunnel that catches and channels particles outside the chassis to prevent them from collecting on the fins. This self-cleaning system helps ensure consistent cooling performance, which improves long-term stability and reliability.

MORE BLADES INCREASE AIRFLOW

AeroAccelerator technology maximises airflow inside the slender chassis. The carefully shaped aluminum intake shrouds use curved edges and raised guides to help the fans draw in more cool air. Once inside, it’s blasted toward the heatsinks by liquid-crystal-polymer blades that are 33% thinner than conventional designs. Zephyrus S achieves our highest-ever blade density with 83 per fan, improving airflow by up to 17%.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE 12V FANS

The dual fans run on 12V power that lets them spin faster, improving airflow compared to typical 5V fans. They draw air from the expanding AAS intake below and vents perforating the chassis above. Exhaust is pumped through four outlets in the edges of the chassis, each one with a subtle ramp that helps separate warm outflow from the layer of cool air flowing into the AAS.

HYPERFAN BOOST ON DEMAND

Accessible by pressing FN + F5 or via the Armoury Crate hotkey, HyperFan can be used to select five different system settings. There’s a default Windows mode with stock settings, and a Manual mode for users to individually adjust the speed of the dedicated GPU and CPU fans to reach an ideal overclocked performance. The remaining three modes help balance system performance and noise level: Turbo mode provides the fastest fan speed to fully exploit the power of Zephyrus S during intense gaming. Silent mode curbs fan speed and power consumption for less demanding tasks. A balanced mode delivers stable fan performance at a moderate noise level.

MILITARY-GRADE TOUGHNESS

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX passes stringent internal quality tests, including surviving multiple drops from a height of 76cm, so it’s tough enough to handle day-to-day hazards. It also meets demanding MIL-STD-810G standards for enduring vibration, shock, altitude, and extreme environmental conditions that would leave lesser laptops begging for mercy.

AURA SYNC BEYOND THE GAMING KEYBOARD

The keyboard ensures precise input in the heat of battle, and it’s built to last. You can customise the backlight colours and effects to suit your style, and another configurable RGB zone illuminates the AAS intake at the back. Aura Sync harmonises lighting across compatible ROG mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your setup a cohesive look.

AMP UP YOUR AUDIO

ROG Zephyrus S puts audio at the forefront with dual speakers aimed right at you. Smart amplifier tech keeps them within thermal and excursion limits, so you can pump up the volume without harming the cones. The resulting output is louder, with more bass and range that help you hear every sound, and you can plug in a headset for even more immersion.

UNIFIED SYSTEM TUNING AND PERSONALISATION

ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting control to put essentials at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily change settings for both and define up to four game profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles. These options are just the beginning for what will become an even more versatile tool.

TAP INTO TYPE-C CHARGING

USB Power Delivery lets ROG Zephyrus S charge from portable power packs, so you don’t have to fight for a socket when the battery gets low. Fast-charging support reverses the direction, using up to 3A to quickly rejuvenate smartphones and other devices. You can also do everyday work with a smaller 65W adapter that lightens your load on the road.

CONNECT ALL YOUR DEVICES

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX531GX has all the connectivity needed for gaming on the go. Type-C™ (USB-C™) ports are available at USB 3.1 Gen 2 and Gen 1 speeds, while Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 2 and USB 2.0 ports are perfect for a gamepad and mouse. HDMI 2.0b at the back supports 4K UHD displays up to 60Hz, so you can game and entertain on big-screen TVs.
