Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: hot specs and hot air

 

More of the same from Asus.

Excellent performance in creative applications ; Improved battery life ; Incredibly quiet in silent mode

Gets surprisingly hot and loud when under load ; There are better alternatives for gaming ; Underwhelming speakers

Asus returns with another high-end 16-inch laptop aimed at creators that bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor. This model brings some improved hardware to the table but not much else.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: overpriced and underpowered

 

But the screen is incredible.

16:10 QHD screen ; There is a webcam ; Great keyboard ; Lightweight and portable

Maxes out at an RTX 3060 ; Pricey for its specs ; Finnicky touchpad

Asus’ ROG Zephyrus M16 is a good laptop marred by limited specs and a price that’s too high for them. It’s powered by Intel’s Core i9-11900H and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060, and its performance and battery life don’t hold up to other products at this...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (2022) review: A lovable gaming laptop

 

Prepare to dote over Asus' brilliant ROG Zephyrus M16

Superb performance ; Engaging 16-inch display ; Nice keyboard and touchpad ; Immersive audio ; Sleek, compact form factor

Expensive and varied availability ; Average 720p webcam ; Gets hot

Thanks to its sleek, off-black sheen and Asus’ signature dot matrix design, along with a dazzling 16-inch display and RTX 3070 Ti GPU, it’s difficult not to marvel at the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: An absolute beast for the price

 

The Zephyrus M16 is a nearly perfect gaming laptop, balancing power and price

Excellent performance and graphics ; Bright 16-inch display ; Clicky keyboard ; Webcam is back, baby ; Solid battery life

Would trade the Core i9 for an RTX 3070 ; Gets warm

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 features incredible performance, a vivid 16-inch display and decent battery life. It’s (almost) everything you could want in a gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review (2022 GU603ZW - Core i9, RTX 3070Ti)

 

Last year Asus launched the ROG Zephyrus M16 series as an Intel-exclusive thin-and-light all-purpose laptop with a 16-inch 16:10 display.

beautiful design and improved build quality over previous gen ; awesome 165 Hz 16:10 QHD+ display, but beware of pontential QC quirks ; good inputs ; updated hardware and excellent performance for the class ; 90Wh battery, and fair battery life ;...

smudgy black finishing, especially on the interior deck ; awkwardly placed status LEDs and IO ; partially soldered RAM, with only 8 GB onboard on many variants ; very loud fans on Turbo ; hot air blown straight into the screen with this design

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: 12th Gen Power, RTX Punch

 

ASUS' excellent thin 16-inch gaming notebook is back, but this time it's got Intel's 12th Gen Alder Lake and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti firepower.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603 review (GU603HR - Core i9-11900H, RTX 3070, QHD+ 16:10 screen)

 

A couple of weeks I got to preview the Zephyrus M16 GU603 series from Asus. In the meantime, I've also spent time with a final review unit and was able to

compact build and beautiful design in this matte black version ; awesome 165 Hz 16:10 QHD+ display ; gets a camera and Thunderbolt 4 support ; good inputs, now with RGB ; powerful hardware and excellent performance for the class ; lower temperatures...

still some creaky noises in the chassis and awkwardly placed status LEDs and IO ; partially soldered RAM ; noisy fans on Turbo ; hot air blown straight into the screen with this design ; shorter battery life than on the G15

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (Core i9, RTX 3070) Review: Why is This Not Widely Available? - MySmartPrice

 

The Asus Zephyrus M16 features the Intel Core i9 11800H under the hood paired with a 100W RTX 3070 GPU and PCIe 4.0 storage. Here's our review.

Thermal throttling ; Single zone RGB keyboard ; Smudge prone surface

The Intel H45-powered Asus Zephyrus M16 is indeed a better performing laptop than all other AMD laptops I’ve tested with the RTX 3070 this year, and there has been quite a few. Intel-based options, on the other hand, has been surprisingly less this...

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603 review – great end result thanks to some tricks

 

Following the success of the Zephyrus G15 GA503, ASUS was quick to release the 16-inch M16. Its name is a bit of a mouthful (ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603), but at the end of the day what matters is …
