The much awaited refresh to the ROG Zephyrus G14 is finally coming to Malaysia. Aside from the heavily anticipated laptop, ASUS Malaysia are also announcing four other GeForce RTX 3060 laptops too from the TUF Gaming Dash F15 and ROG Strix G15 and G17 series. Let’s check them out.

ROG Zephyrus G14 – RM7699

While the previous generation of the ROG Zephyrus G14 came in multiple specifications, ASUS will only be bringing in a single configuration of the refreshed ROG Zephyrus G14, but in two color options.

The iconic design of the ROG Zephyrus G14 is retained, but ASUS did add a virtual pet named Omni that can hang out in the AniMe Matrix to keep you company while you work/game from home.

ASUS ROG Strix G Series – from RM5999

ROG Strix G15 2021

On top of the previously announced configurations of the ASUS ROG Strix G15 and G17 laptops, ASUS is adding two new options featuring the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX paired up with the GeForce RTX 3060. Previously, the GeForce RTX 3060 GPUs were only available with the Ryzen 7 5800H CPUs, so these two new options are probably targeted towards satisfying users who need a bit more CPU grunt.

ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 – from RM4699

ASUS TUF Gaming Dash F15 FX516 design

ASUS also added two more configurations to the rather interesting TUF Gaming Dash F15 series, with two CPU options and different memory capacities to slot in at an even more affordable price than the initial configuration of the TUF Gaming Dash F15 that featured the GeForce RTX 3070. Now everyone can use an ultraportable gaming laptop!

It appears that ASUS Malaysia has yet to bring in the white variant though, so you will still have to wait a little longer if you want to get the TUF Gaming Dash F15 in white.

Pokdepinion: Finally my beloved ROG Zephyrus G14 is refreshed, but the starting price is a lot higher this time around…
