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 (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 …

Fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi 6 support;Up to 48GB of RAM;Dual NVMe drive support;PWM-free display (QHD, 165Hz panel);Quick pixel response times (QHD, 165Hz panel);100% sRGB coverage + almost full DCI-P3 coverage and great color accuracy thanks to our...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: Hit and Miss Performance in a Slim Body

 

Can be great— depending on which games you play

Compact ; Bright ; 2560 x 1600 resolution ; Clear audio

Inconsistent gaming performance ; Pricey for what you get

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 laptop aces its compact chassis and beautiful screen but has issues when it comes to power.

Review: Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603HR-K8004T | For Speed And Creativity Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603HR-K8004T

 

Asus' black luxury racer costs a lot of money. But not as many as you might think when you see how fast it is.

Seriously fast processor - and ditto graphics. Even if there is "only" one GeForce RTX 3070 card in the PC. Elegant enough to use at business meetings.

It is cheap in terms of performance, but still costs a lot of money. What could not have been acheived with an even better graphics card?

Whether the purpose is professional graphics or high-level gaming, the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 handles the task in superior style. And it has even managed to wrap the power in a unit that is both compact and elegant – and which will instill equal respect...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: A gaming gladiator

 

The ROG Zephyrus is a stunning, powerful and surprisingly nimble machine considering its size and what's on the inside.

Compact for a big-screened laptop ; Fantastic slim-bezel display ; Speedy and responsive performance ; All the ports you could need ; Practical and attractive design

Battery will last 4.5 hours tops when away from plug ; In lower power modes intensive games really struggle to run ; Fans get really loud under load

In the past you used to have to choose between having a great gaming laptop or a great laptop for work. With the ROG Zephyrus M16 you get one that’s just as accomplished a gaming machine as it is a work laptop. It's a gladiator among gaming laptops -...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603 review: Another killer gaming laptop from Asus

 

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 is a superb gaming laptop that's powerful, slim and lightweight

Slim but powerful ; Fabulous keyboard and touchpad ; Stupendous 165Hz screen

Not the greatest battery life

Despite that slight niggle, I’m still seriously impressed with the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16. It manages to pack a huge amount of power into a slim frame, topped off with rocket-fuelled SSD performance and a spectacularly good display.
