This time to try this time, in the 2022 version of “ROG Zephyrus G14”, we adopted “Anime Matrix” where the LED effect can be enjoyed by the top plate. The CPU is equipped with a new model of AMD RYZEN 9 6900HS and graphics, with a new model of AMD RADEON RX 6800S, and is equipped with Memory 32GB, SSD 1TB, and it is quite speckle. It is a specification that enjoys interpersonal battle in a popular online game so far.

# ■ Design to stimulate “sense of possession”

“ROG ZEPHYRUS G14” is HDMIX1, USB 3.2 (TYPE-C / GEN2) X1, USB 3.2 (TYPE-C / GEN2) X1, USB 3.2 (TYPE-A / GEN1) x 2 (TYPE-A / GEN1) x 2, MicrosDXC / MicrosdHC / MicroSD Memory Card Reader. 14 Type Wide TFT Color LCD (16: 10, 2560×1440) The front camera is also added to the top of the display, and it is likely to handle it with a light kitchch and it can be handled comfortably even in applications other than the game.

There is 14 inches, and the size of the keyboard should be suppressed overall. The space key may receive a cramped impression, but you can feel that there is no problem when touching “WASD” mainly. Keystrokes are felt a little deeper, and the stroke feeling strongly stronger. Of course, gaming notes can also enjoy illumination effects.

Designistic highlights will be not only illumination but also the top plate LED “Anime Matrix”. In addition to choosing a preset, you can read the prepared image and display it as a dot picture or play a mini game.

As a first impression, I felt that it was a note that matched “Gamer who wants to commit to looks”, taking into consideration the size of 14 inches. It is difficult to put a large size gaming PC in the room, or if it is too large, it will be concerned about the layout of the PC desk. It will be a “Ali” machine.

The size of the model to be trying this time is “width 312mm × depth 227mm × height 19.5 to 22.61mm”, and the weight is “1.72 kg”. Compared to the same size laptop, it is an weight that can be said to be roughly standard. Although it is inferior to the so-called ultra-light body machine, it is inferior to a little carriage. The synergy with “Anime Matrix” is the finish that makes you want to show others.

# ■ Comfortable gameplay… fever is ARMOURY CRATE and corresponds to ○

As you can see if you look at the specs, recent games can be played comfortably without falling below 60 fps. E-sports scene is full of “Valorant” or “League of Legend”, “Apex Legends”, but… I’m worried that I’m worried about ** Fire.

This time, “Apex Legends” and “Forza Horizon 5” are continuous for 1 to 2 hours by trial. I felt the sink and heat radiation from the part that hit the palm rest, but the GPU temperature keeps around 78 degrees to 80 degrees. This time, while switching profiles in “Armoury CRATE”, we basically play games in “TURBO” mode.

Naturally, “TURBO” also had a scene that widesliners the volume of the fan, but if necessary, switching to “silent” and “performance” will not be bothered by the drive sound of the fan. It will be a beta that switches the operating profile in case by case, such as gameplaying and other work.

This time, it was a hardware robustness because it was just trial, but I need concerns for your environment and desk layout concerns. If it will play continuously for a long time, you can use it more stably if there is a cooler.

The “ROG ZEPHYRUS G14 GA402RK” introduced in this paper will be released at tax-included price of 299,800 yen . The specifications as a gaming note PC are sufficient, and there is no problem with the so-called “E Sport scene where the E Sport scene is exciting” is a “Gamer who wants to stick to the sense and looks” I feel.

Because it is a sense of size of 14 inches / 1.72kg, it is difficult to expect “the immersive feeling of gaming desktop”, but the user’s expectation that you want to play with slim laptops It is a machine that gives you The CPU / GPU potential is high, open world games released at this time, and games that will be released in the future will also be comfortable. While considering the price side, a gamer who is considering introducing a gaming notebook PC will also check the future new information.
