For this we have been given an enlightened review Jefferis G15 of Asus Arg And G14This is obviously a big fan of the company’s gaming crafts. Next up for Asus: a pair of big screen machines. The Jefferus M16 screeds a 16-inch quad HD screen in a case that is 5 percent less than last year’s M15. And the new 17-inch Zephyros S17 now has a raised keyboard, which we’ve seen Two west.

Naturally, both machines will be featured Intel’s powerful new H-Series CPUAs well as NVIDIA has RTX 30-series GPU. The Slim Jefferis M16 can be equipped with an RTX 3070, the SS17 can be equipped with an RTX 3080. The M16’s 16-inch display looks impressive on paper with a 165Hz refresh rate, adaptive sync support and a long 16 by 10 aspect ratio. It also supports Dolby Vision and covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 gamut, so you can expect bolder pops than usual.
I would particularly like to see the M16 in action, if only to be seen in its thin 4.6mm screen bezels. This year, Asus was also able to shave the bottom bezel, which gives it a 94 percent screen for body proportions. The edges of the screen have almost completely disappeared from the renders we’ve seen. The M16 doesn’t look particularly average – it weighs 4.19 pounds, a little less than the 4.3-pound MacBook Air 16 inches.
For those who need the most screen space, the Jeffers S17 also looks like a tough upgrade compared to last year’s model. Increasing keyboards allow more ergonomic typing. And most importantly, it will create better air flow, which is especially important if you want to run the RTX 3080 (which can easily switch between integrated and isolated graphics), and an intense 120Hz 4K screen with adaptive sync.
The S17’s bezels aren’t as slender as the M16’s, but displays with Dolby Vision and full DCI-P3 coverage should still look great. ASUS says that both the M16 and S17 can hit 500 nits of brightness, making them strong HDR competitors as well as outdoor notebooks. Just be prepared to log around to the Jefferus S17, which weighs 5.73 pounds.
The Jefferis M16 and S17 should be available in the second quarter, ASUS says. We don’t have any pricing details yet, but you can expect a lot more price than these compared to the relatively affordable Sapphire G lineup.
