Attractive design

Display options:

  • 14-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080), 120Hz update
  • 14-inch WQHD (2560 x 1440), 60Hz
  • 1,000 customizable AniMe Matrix LED lights on the lid
  • 100% sRGB, Validated by Pantone, AMD FreeSync
  • Design options Moonlight White / Eclipse Gray

The Zephyrus G14 is available in Eclipse Gray or Moonlight White:

  • As you can see in our pictures, the latter has its white lid and silver keyboard layout.
  • Which houses a surprisingly easy-to-see 14-inch small screen.
  • That screen is a 120Hz 1080p or 60Hz WQHD IPS screen, depending on which model you choose.
  • And thanks to Asus’ game visual modes, you can switch between several different viewing scenes, including FPS, RTS / RPG, sRGB, Racing, Cinema, and Scenery.
  • Those modes make the IPS panel even more customizable.
  • The Zephyrus G14 has a subtly backlit keyboard that glows pleasantly a shade of white when you want it to, but it doesn’t quite get to be fully RGB capable like the Scar III.

Points of reference 3DMark: TimeSpy, TimeSpy Extreme, Port Royal, Firestrike Ultra, DLSS:

  • Despite its size, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is not far behind when it comes to gaming.
  • With the RTX 2060 Max-Q version, we were able to get decent performance.
  • The RTX GPU options mean that you can take advantage of Nvidia’s Ray Tracing technology in various games, including Minecraft with RTX.
  • The combination of an AMD Ryzen CPU, decent RAM, a fast NVMe disk.
  • And an Nvidia ace graphics processor means you can play well on most modern titles.
  • A 1080p screen isn’t demanding, of course, but it’s nice to see games like Far Cry New Dawn running at around 80fps when it’s on the highest graphics settings.
  • We raced the G14 at its pace, playing some of our favourite games.
  • And were surprised by its performance, given its size.
  • On most gaming laptops of this site, we’re usually left wanting and hit sore eyes after a short while.
  • But somehow, the G14 doesn’t disappoint.
  • We’re pretty sure the game’s visual options had a lot to do with this.
  • Along with a lovely IPS panel design that features AMD FreeSync technology.
  • If you find that you want to connect an external display, you can.
  • The G14 is designed to be portable and flexible.
  • It works as a compact laptop that you can play on and one that you can take to work.

Connectivity concerns?

  • 2x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
  • HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort (via USB-C adapter)
  • Intel Wi-Fi 6 ( 802.11ax ), Bluetooth 5.0
  • USB-C power supply

However, there are some frustrations. The area, in particular, is connectivity:

  • First of all, there is no Ethernet connection here, so don’t expect to connect for a solid wired network connection. The second minor annoyance comes in the port settings.
  • Here are two standard USB Type-A connections on this device, and they are both on the right.
  • Thus if you plug in a mouse and a headset, you’ve suddenly filled most of the usable ports and blocked part of your gaming area as well.
  • For example, we found that we had to give the laptop a good amount of space to use the mouse effectively without getting caught in the cables with wired mice.
  • The problem could be reduced with a wireless gaming mouse, but it is still a complaint. The third frustration is the graphics output.
  • This laptop consumes HDMI and DisplayPort, but the latter is only available with an additional USB-C adapter.
  • We required to test the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite on this laptop, but we had to delay for a USB-C to DisplayPort converter to arrive first.
  • Most of the other gaming laptops we’ve tested used Mini DisplayPort connections instead.
  • Though, with the adapter finally in place, we could use this laptop for VR gaming, proving its powerhouse credentials.
