ASUS unveils gaming laptops Zephyrus S GX531, Design, Display, Performance, See the First Impression

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced Zephyrus S GX531 in India. At only 14.95 ~ 15.75mm thin, Zephyrus S is 12% slim than the original Zephyrus (GX501). It is equipped with the latest Intel Core i7-8750H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics. Narrow bezelles squeeze 15.6 inch display, with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time 14.2 inches chassis. All-metal chassis are strong enough to meet military-grade stability standards without compromising design, with sleek lines and a premium finish. An advanced cooling system ensures optimal performance of all components, including proprietary active aerodynamic system (AAS) - a design and engineering hallmark of the Jefferies series.


Zephyrus S uses a mixture of aluminum and magnesium alloys in its construction to achieve this balance. Each lid is carefully mechanized with a solid block of aluminum. This accurate CNC-milling process takes five tooling stages and about 72 minutes, which is to cover all the complex details, which ensure a perfect fit, can make a lid which is remarkably rigid, yet diluted is. It also helps the Jefferies S KING to be sustainable: Engineering samples have already completed military-grade stability standards for shock and vibration.

Contrasting enhances the design of Finnish accent: Two-phase anodizing enamel speaks the surfaces with copper highlights, while a surgical slash separates the competing texture. Similar lines are cut in the area above the keyboard, giving Zipiras a distinctive style. As long as the laptop is not opened, the scissor-door hinges have a low profile, which displays the display and opens the unique food intake of Jefirus.


Narrow bezelles allow a 15.6-inch display to be squeezed into a 14.2-inch chassis. This reduces the entire footprint, allowing Jeffiras S to fit in tight areas compared to its predecessor. In addition, Slimmer Bejals create a more immersive gaming experience.

In the early version, the 120Hz panel doubled the latest rate of conventional demonstrations, while Zephyrus S increased the fresh rate to 144Hz, and reduced the response time to 3ms.

The IPS-type AHVA panel also has excellent image quality. It covers 100% of sRGB color gamut, ensures color richness, and wide viewing angles prevent the photo from being washed when seen in split screen.


Cooling the critical components with the Jefferies S is a tough engineering achievement due to ultraathine design, but it is necessary to ensure peak performance. Because of this, ASUS and ROG thermal engineers developed innovative active aerodynamic system (AAS) for the original Zephias. When the laptop's lid is removed, a special vent opens under the chassis, allowing the laptop to be pulled in a cool air. Similarly, the use of AAS measures 5 mm on the Zephyrus S, spreads to the whole body to improve airflow by 22% compared to traditional designs. The extra airflow comes in through the keyboard, and the next layout of the keyboard creates more room for extra cooling throughout the system.

Within the chassis, there are five heat pipes in the Jefferies S, which heat the heat from the CPU and the GPU, and also the VRM circuitry which gives them electricity. The CPU and GPU connect both types of shared and dedicated to ensure efficient cooling for any workload, and the components of the electricity are less than 80 degrees Celsius to improve long-term reliability. The thermal energy is inserted into four heat and exhaust ventures on the rear corners as well as pipes, which occur twice in the zephyrus.

Keeping the heats free of dust and debris is critical to preserving the cooling performance, which is why the engineering team added self-cleaning fans to take the particles out of the system through anti-dust tunnels. This special feature prevents accumulation of wings for ensuring continuous cooling and improving long-term stability.

With 83 blades, fans of each 12V aeronaclerator have 17% more blades compared to the original Jefferies. The fan-shaped aluminum shroud also improves the airflow in which the edges are curved and the guides have been taken to help the channel more air in the blade. Rotational speed is determined by an intelligent algorithm tied to three profiles. Keyboard shortcuts allow users to switch between overlay mode between maximum gaming performance, silent mode for low acoustics and balanced mode, which maintains a level between the two.


However, the keyboard-forward layout at Zephyrus S mainly benefits the cooling, it also allows for a more comfortable resting room like a comfortable desktop. Overstroke technology sets a fire for important responsiveness in the first quick journey and long post-activity distance maximizes the journey of 1.2 mm to improve the maximum typing effect. Durable switches have been rated for 20 million presses, so they face heavy use.

Storage and connectivity

Zephyrus S is supported by the Intel Core i7-8750H CPU Fast DDR4 2666MHz memory and NVMe storage, while the 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi connects to a compatible wireless network at a greater speed of more than-gigabyte. USB 3.1 General 2 Type-C (USB-C) and full-sized HDMI 2.0 ports support desktop monitor and large-screen TV, allowing users to connect a double-friendly display. More USB ports are ready for necessary gaming peripherals and ubiquitous external storage, and a USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A port provides additional bandwidth for compatible devices.
