The Zephyrus G14 is the ideal gaming laptop. It’s something that ASUS has been working towards for years with the impressively thin Zephyrus line. The G14 is incredibly fast; thin and light; and, surprisingly enough, it even packs in a decent amount of battery life. It’s a new landmark for ultraportable gaming notebooks, something that every competitor will be judged against. 

It’s also a strong debut for AMD, as one of the first laptops to feature its powerful Ryzen 4000 series chips, including the eight-core Ryzen 9 4900HS. Finally, there’s some competition for Intel’s ubiquitous notebook chips. Ironically, that AMD hardware is paired together with NVIDIA’s latest GPUs, all the way up to the RTX 2060 Max-Q. (We’re still for the new Radeon mobile GPUs to show up.)
