High Power Processing
When you need to render large video files or perform other intensive tasks, you can rely on the latest gen Ryzen™ 9 6000 series?. This CPU offers exceptional multithreaded performance, while also maintaining best-in-class gaming ability.
Powered by NVIDIA's Ampere architecture, the RTX™ 3080 is the most powerful GPU we've put into a laptop. With a maximum TGP of 165W and access to the latest technology like ray tracing and DLSS, this GPU can deliver both high resolution and high frame rates in the latest AAA games.
*165W only available on Manual mode with Dynamic Boost
Boost Performance With AI
NVIDIA DLSS gives games a speed boost with uncompromised image quality. Crank up the settings and resolution for an even better visual experience.
More Immersive Experiences
Ray Tracing is the holy grail of graphics. It simulates how light behaves in the real-world to produce the most realistic and immersive graphics for gamers and creators - and runs fast thanks to 2nd gen RT Cores.
Optimized Power And Performance
NVIDIA Max-Q is a suite of technologies powered by AI that optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.
Get More With MUX
Modern gaming laptops use powerful, dedicated graphics chips for high performance-but most route those frames through the CPU's integrated graphics before reaching the display. For competitive games, a MUX switch opens a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 9%.
Lightning Fast Load Times With Gen 4 SSD
Up to 2 NVM Express® (NVMe®) PCIe® Gen 4x4 SSDs running in RAID 0 bring incredible speed and responsiveness to your system. Stocked with up to 4TB of storage, this PCI Express® array is spacious enough for your most massive multimedia projects and modern games.

Rog Intelligent Cooling
Upgraded Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal
Powerful components like the CPU need a thermal interface material to transfer their heat to the cooling system. Thermal Grizzly's Conductonaut Extreme improves upon standard thermal pastes with 17X higher thermal conductivity, resulting in up to 15°C cooler CPU temperatures. Used exclusively by ROG, this indium and galium compound offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop. And unlike typical pastes, liquid metal will also never dry out, improving long term stability.
- Up to 15°C cooler CPU temperature
- 17X better thermal conductivity
- Thermal Grizzly
0dB Ambient Cooling, Zero Distractions
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Ambient Cooling. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
0dB Ambient Cooling, zero distractions
Targeted Airflow With Internal Blast Cooling
Internal Blast Cooling uses precisely calculated cutouts in the fan chamber to direct airflow toward internal components. When compared to more traditional designs, this allows for more efficient cooling, reducing CPU and GPU temperatures by up to 6°C. Lower temperatures mean higher sustained boost clocks during intense gaming sessions.
- Up to 6°C lower CPU and GPU temp.
5 Comprehensive Heatpipes Have You Covered
Our comprehensive solution uses up to five heatpipes and quad heatsinks for efficient dissipation across all internal components. More heatpipes means more efficient heat transfer, and unlike simpler designs which only cover the CPU and GPU, this layout also draws heat away from the VRAM and voltage regulation modules for better system stability.
- 22% better hermal coverage
0.1mm Ultra Thin Fin For The Win
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher heat dissipation with lower air resistance. There are up to 252 heatsink fins totaling 110,328mm² of surface area.
- Up to 13% better heat dissipation
- Up to 69% faster thermal conductivity
Arc Flow Fans™ Move More Air With Less Noise
Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of our Arc Flow fans. Traditional fan blades have a single thickness from base to tip. Our 84-blade Arc Flow Fans™ have a variable thickness design, down to 0.1mm at the tip. This approach reduces resonance and turbulence, moving up to 13% more air.*
*Compared to previous 83-blade ROG fan design, as tested internally by ASUS.
- Up to 13% more airflow
- 84-blade down to 0.1mm LCP fans
PORTABILITY - Dual Displays. One Device.
The Zephyrus Duo 16 really shows its versatility when you take it on the go. The built-in secondary display means that you always have a second screen available, while the 90Wh battery and USB Type-C™ charging can keep you powering through work all day long. An IR camera with Windows Hello support makes unlocking the machine a breeze.
- Expansive 90Wh battery
- 50% in 30 mins Fast Charging technology

KEYBOARD - The Key To Victory
The Zephyrus Duo 16 sacrifices nothing. Utilizing NumberPad technology, the trackpad doubles as a full number pad to maximize space on the keyboard deck. N-key rollover ensures that each keypress is independently registered, giving you flexibility in game for complicated combos or accuracy for quick typing. A long 1.7mm key travel makes the Zephyrus Duo 16 very comfortable to type on, minimizing accidental keypresses as well. Per-key RGB and Aura Sync integration allows for robust preset and custom lighting patterns via Armoury Crate.
- Per-key RGB keyboard
- 1.7mm travel distance
- NumberPad technology
- ASUS AURA SYNC
UPGRADEABILITY - Replace. Refit. Rearm.
Upgradeability is key to keeping your machine running well for years to come-and the Zephyrus Duo allows you to upgrade both the RAM and storage to extend its lifespan. A special pop-open screw pushes the bottom of the chassis away from the laptop as it's loosened. The hooks holding those edges together are smaller and stronger than before to make lifting off the panel easy. The Zephyrus Duo has dual SO-DIMMs and allows for future RAM upgrades. Both M.2 SSD slots are also accessible and expandable.
IO PORT - Endless Connectivity
Connect to all of your devices with a robust selection of I/O. A pair of USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C™ ports offer DisplayPort™ 1.4a, with power delivery support on one and G-Sync on the other. Two additional USB 3.2 Gen 2 round out connectivity for your peripherals. Enjoy HDMI 2.1 support for an external display, as well as a 2.5G ethernet port, dedicated microSD card reader, and an audio combo jack. Dongles begone!
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customize Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles.
*Interface may vary by version
Screen Xpert software allows for seamless navigation between your primary display and ScreenPad Plus™ secondary display. It enables drag and drop, touchscreen controls, and a bevy of other intuitive tools to optimize your experience.
