The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) updated their current line up of gaming laptops with the brand new 8th Generation Coffee Lake Intel Cores. They also launched a brand new line of gaming laptops designed to combine the ultimate power in the thinnest possible set up. That package comes in a Zephyrus body and is called the Zephyrus M.
The Zephyrus M GM501 is ASUS answer to a thin and ultra-portable power in your bag wherever you go. It packs the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 paired with 16GB of RAM and up to the full beans of a NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 GPU. If that is not impressive enough the brand new world beater ROG packs a 1TB FireCuda SSHD for enhanced speed. Those converges your contents and games to a 1080p Full HD IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, and it supports G-Sync as well. To top it all off, the Zephyrus M gets Aura Sync LED backlit keyboards for that extra bling when you game.
You can get your hands on one by the end of April, 2018. How much? It starts at MYR7,999 for the NVIDIA GTX1060 version while the higher-end GTX1070 will set you back a cool MYR9,299.
