Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: hot specs and hot air

 

More of the same from Asus.

Excellent performance in creative applications ; Improved battery life ; Incredibly quiet in silent mode

Gets surprisingly hot and loud when under load ; There are better alternatives for gaming ; Underwhelming speakers

Asus returns with another high-end 16-inch laptop aimed at creators that bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor. This model brings some improved hardware to the table but not much else.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: top tier gaming performance with style

 

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 impresses in most areas

Excellent design ; Decent battery life ; Powerful specs

Not widescreen ; Slightly noisy ; Relatively pricey

The Asus ROG Zephyrus brings with it some very decent hardware specs and lots more besides: excellent audio, a very comfortable keyboard, and a top class screen. While it's not quite a perfect gaming laptop, it certainly has enough about it to attract...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: overpriced and underpowered

 

But the screen is incredible.

16:10 QHD screen ; There is a webcam ; Great keyboard ; Lightweight and portable

Maxes out at an RTX 3060 ; Pricey for its specs ; Finnicky touchpad

Asus’ ROG Zephyrus M16 is a good laptop marred by limited specs and a price that’s too high for them. It’s powered by Intel’s Core i9-11900H and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060, and its performance and battery life don’t hold up to other products at this...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (2022) review: A lovable gaming laptop

 

Prepare to dote over Asus' brilliant ROG Zephyrus M16

Superb performance ; Engaging 16-inch display ; Nice keyboard and touchpad ; Immersive audio ; Sleek, compact form factor

Expensive and varied availability ; Average 720p webcam ; Gets hot

Thanks to its sleek, off-black sheen and Asus’ signature dot matrix design, along with a dazzling 16-inch display and RTX 3070 Ti GPU, it’s difficult not to marvel at the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: A gaming gladiator

 

The ROG Zephyrus is a stunning, powerful and surprisingly nimble machine considering its size and what's on the inside.

Compact for a big-screened laptop ; Fantastic slim-bezel display ; Speedy and responsive performance ; All the ports you could need ; Practical and attractive design

Battery will last 4.5 hours tops when away from plug ; In lower power modes intensive games really struggle to run ; Fans get really loud under load

In the past you used to have to choose between having a great gaming laptop or a great laptop for work. With the ROG Zephyrus M16 you get one that’s just as accomplished a gaming machine as it is a work laptop. It's a gladiator among gaming laptops -...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: An absolute beast for the price

 

The Zephyrus M16 is a nearly perfect gaming laptop, balancing power and price

Excellent performance and graphics ; Bright 16-inch display ; Clicky keyboard ; Webcam is back, baby ; Solid battery life

Would trade the Core i9 for an RTX 3070 ; Gets warm

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 features incredible performance, a vivid 16-inch display and decent battery life. It’s (almost) everything you could want in a gaming laptop.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603ZW (2022) review: A powerful gaming laptop with a little extra

 

A powerful laptop with a strong lean towards gaming, the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 (2022) is an impressive all-rounder

Incredibly fast ; Light for a gaming machine ; Superb 165Hz 19:10 display

Battery life is uninspiring ; Fans are noisy at full speed

The M16 can't match the Apple MacBook Pro as an all-round workstation, then. It runs pretty loud and battery life isn't nearly as good, but if you're looking for a powerful gaming machine that can also do a bit of work on the side, then the M16 does...

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 GU603 review: Another killer gaming laptop from Asus

 

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 is a superb gaming laptop that's powerful, slim and lightweight

Slim but powerful ; Fabulous keyboard and touchpad ; Stupendous 165Hz screen

Not the greatest battery life

Despite that slight niggle, I’m still seriously impressed with the Asus ROG Zephyrus M16. It manages to pack a huge amount of power into a slim frame, topped off with rocket-fuelled SSD performance and a spectacularly good display.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 Review: 12th Gen Power, RTX Punch

 

ASUS' excellent thin 16-inch gaming notebook is back, but this time it's got Intel's 12th Gen Alder Lake and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti firepower.
