ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop Review
Please note: During our review, we had reached out to Asus asking for the maximum RAM supported and were incorrectly informed that the laptop is maxed out at 16GB. The max supported RAM is 24GB. 8GB is soldered and the single DIMM slot can accommodate a maximum of a 16GB stick.
The Asus ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) is a 15” gaming laptop, which Asus claims is the thinnest 15-inch gaming machine right now. It sits less than an inch thick and measures 2.1 kilograms, which really isn’t a lot when you think about it. It packs that signature “Aero Active” hinge, where the bottom opens up by a few millimeters when the laptop is open, all to aid in better air flow. Seeing how the GX531 packs an Nvidia RTX 2070 with the Max-Q design, this machine will definitely need the extra cooling. We’ve had the laptop in our labs for some days now and after having put it through a bunch of tests, we finally know whether to recommend the laptop or not. Short answer, it's not simple.
