ROG-exclusive design and cooling system
The ROG Zephyrus is cooled by an exclusively designed Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that increases the efficiency of the airflow through the laptop. The fan’s surface cover and accelerator are 3D-curved to enhance the airflow that ultimately helps remove the heat more efficiently. As shown in above image, when the Zephyrus’ lid is opened, the bottom chassis flexes open to increase the airflow by 20% which further increases the air circulation.
The ASUS Aura RGB keyboard is also positioned at the front of the chassis to allow better cooling of the internal components. Honestly speaking, having all those high-end components stuffed into a chassis as thin as 16.9mm is not an easy task as you need to address the biggest issue of all – the heat.
