ASUS Zephyrus With GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q Gaming Laptop Preview: Thin And BeastlyComputex 2017 unveiling of the new GeForce GTX with Max-Q Design technology for laptops was presented with the usual charismatic polish and enthusiasm that the company's leather-clad CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang is well known for. Frankly, it seemed a little too good to be true. In one hand, Huang held a legacy 10-pound boat anchor of a gaming notebook, while in the other he held the new ASUS ROG Zephyrus, a sub-5 pound machine that's just 17.9mm thick. Extolling the virtues of the new ASUS notebook powered by a GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design technology, he pointed out that the new machine had 3 times the gaming performance of the old one (powered by a mobile GeForce GTX 880) at half the weight and 1/3rd the thickness. It was a stark contrast to be sure, and a bold claim, and you know we're the type to put bold claims to the test.As such, we're in the process of putting the new ASUS ROG Zephyrus with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q Design through its paces here. We're in the early setup and evaluation phase, but thought it might be fun to preview our initial findings for you on this super-thin slice of technology, along with a few benchmark scores for good measure, of course.
