The Asus ROG Zephyrus series received a 2024 refresh back in January and the G16 model even made its way into our borders. A whole new development has just taken place with the series, particularly the 16-inch model. Let’s further discuss the new batch of Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 (2024) with AMD processor in this article including its price in Nepal.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 (AMD) Overview

Design and Display

Regarding design, nothing changed between the Intel and AMD variants of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024. The chassis of the laptop is still made out of CNC-machined aluminium alloy. It also has that iconic “Slash Lighting” LED array with 15 preprogrammed animations and additional customisation options. Similarly, the colourways also remain unchanged with Eclipse Grey and Platinum White choices.

On the front, we are looking at a 16-inch OLED panel with a glossy finish. It stretches 2.5K in resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Additionally, this screen comes with a 240Hz refresh rate, a 0.2ms response time, 500 nits peak brightness, and a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut. In other words, it’s the same thing on the AMD variant of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 (AMD) as the one with an Intel processor.

Performance

Now we are finally talking difference — it’s under the hood. The main processor on this particular Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 is the AMD Ryzen AI 9 HX 370. It is a fresh-out-of-foundry silicon based on Zen 5 CPU architecture. This chip has 12 cores, 24 threads, and clocks in at a peak of 5.1GHz. Furthermore, it is coupled with AMD Ryzen AI XDNA 2 NPU which the company (AMD) claims to be the most powerful in the world. Anyhoo, with this combination the laptop is capable of up to 81 TOPS of AI performance.

Moreover, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 2024 (AMD) also packs the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 GPU on top of the baked-in Radeon 890M. This discrete graphics card adds to the laptop’s graphical prowess while also boosting the AI performance by an additional 321 TOPS at the 105W maximum TGP.

Other than that, it comes with up to 32GB LPDDR5X-7500 dual-channel RAM on board. This means that there is no option for memory expansion on this laptop. Likewise, it ships with up to 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD for storage. On top of that, it has an extra SSD slot that supports another 2TB unit. This laptop also packs the ROG Intelligent Cooling system which is a collection of different components to keep the thermals in check.

Battery and the rest

In the tank, it has a 90Wh battery and supports 240W or 100W of charging speed depending on the interface used. The former is achieved through a 200W AC adapter while the latter is from USB Type-C. In terms of multimedia, it comes with a 1080p FHD IR camera, a three-mic array, and a four-speaker system with two woofers and tweeters each.
