ROG Announces Zephyrus S17 Premium Gaming Laptop with Rising Keyboard

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today unveiled the ROG Zephyrus S17, a high end gaming laptop featuring a rising optical-mechanical keyboard that allows for superior cooling. The Zephyrus S17 delivers top tier performance for gaming and more in a slim package with the style for any occasion.

The 11th Gen Intel® Core i9-11900H CPU and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU delivers ultimate performance. The keyboard lifts up at a 5° angle, enhancing the  typing ergonomics and opening wide vents to silently pull cooling air into the laptop. Coupled with the liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU, these upgrades let users enjoy powerful computing in a device that’s slim, quiet, and premium to the touch.

An expansive17-inch screen provides an immersive experience thanks to a WQHD display with Advanced Optimus and G-SYNC for higher frame rates, offering high refresh rates, vibrant colors, and excellent color accuracy. An impressive six-speaker system with dual force-canceling woofers lets users travel with high-fidelity sound. The combination of the visual and auditory experiences brings all the actions to life.



Rising keyboard meets superior cooling

The ROG Zephyrus S17 features a bold new design that balances powerful processing, quiet acoustics, and cool temperatures in a less than 20mm thin body. As the user lifts the lid, the keyboard rises at a 5° angle, opening broad vents that increase intake airflow by 25%. Raising the keyboard also minimizes its surface temperature, keeping the user’s fingers cool.

Additional ROG Intelligent Cooling features further strengthen the S17’s thermal capacity. ROG’s latest Arc Flow fans move air silently and efficiently. An exotic liquid metal thermal compound applied by ROG’s patented process diverts heat away from the Intel processor with great efficiency. A total of six heat pipes also draw heat away from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM circuitry and out of the chassis through four heatsinks with extremely thin fins to deliver the next-level performance.


Powerful Intel® CPU and NVIDIA® GPU

The Intel Core i9-11900H CPU in the highest configuration is clocked up to 4.9GHz, and owing to ROG’s innovative cooling, it runs on up to 50W of sustained power when the GPU is active and 90W on its own. Its eight cores and 16 threads provide supercharged gaming, streaming, and creating for fast and efficient multitasking. The Zephyrus S17 delivers high FPS even in the most graphic heavy games with an NVIDIAGeForce RTX 3080 GPU based on the cutting-edge Ampere architecture, which provides the most realistic ray-traced graphics and advanced AI features. These enhacements enable lifelike visuals while pushing frame rates to new heights. It also supports for Resizable BAR enabling the CPU to access all of the GPU memory at once, which can improve performance in many games.


Immersive 17” display and vivid visuals

The expansive 17-inch screen engages the user in games and creative projects. It’s surrounded by extremely narrow bezels that slim down to 5.65mm on the sides. Quick 3ms response times reduce the motion blur in fast-moving scenes. Full coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut, coupled with enhanced contrast with Dolby Vision support, delivers vivid hues in games and media. All Zephyrus S17 displays are factory calibrated and PANTONE®Validated for exceptional color accuracy, so creators can fine-tune their projects with confidence.

It also features a 165Hz refresh rate WQHD panel for responsive gameplay with rich details. This panel also comes with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology, which blends the battery-saving tools of Optimus with the fluidity and responsiveness G-SYNC®. It leverages a dynamic display switch to intelligently shift between the integrated and discrete GPUs to maximize battery life or performance depending on what the user is doing. When running off the discrete GPU, the display’s refresh rate synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate for smoother, tear-free gaming.


World’s best speakers in a gaming laptop

Six speakers with Dolby Atmos further maximize immersion. Two tweeters team up with dual force-canceling woofers to deliver crisp highs and clear bass. Each woofer consists of two speakers that are slightly offset to cancel each other’s vibrations, terminating unwanted resonance.

To improve voice chat, advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation mitigates unwanted sounds from both input and output audio. It can be applied to any device and even customized on a per-app basis, so users can limit noise-canceling to chat apps without affecting in-game sounds. Gamers can communicate better with teammates, creators can record cleaner audio in any environment, and everyone can enjoy a clear conversation.


Portable elegance and broad connectivity

The slim design and subtle looks make it easy to take the S17 everywhere. Its substantial 90Wh battery augment such mobility. Support for USB Type-C® charging up to 100W lets users leave the main adapter at home. While the full-sized adapter is required for maximum performance, the laptop can handle everyday work running off a smaller Type-C adapter or even a portable USB power pack. For agility, users can also toggle between operating modes manually with the Zephyrus S17’s Multiwheel in the upper left corner of the keyboard deck. They can adjust Operating Modes, input and output volume, keyboard backlighting, display brightness, and more.

While for those who need to connect another display, a USB Type-C port with Display Port stands ready alongside a dedicated HDMI port. The SD card reader supports transfer speeds up to 312MB/s, enabling quick access to photos and videos. The S17 not only provides portability but also ultimate flexibility through seamless connectivity.



The ROG Zephyrus S17 will be available from30thSeptember 2021 in Virgin Megastore, Sharaf DG, Jumbo, Emax, Amazon and Computronic. Price start from 15,999 AED.
