Republic of Gamers Philippines has announced their 2023 13th Gen ROG gaming laptops with a slew of significant updates.
The new lineup will feature Intel’s latest 13th gen processor. It will also include next-gen GPUs, redesigned chassis, improved intelligent cooling design, and eye-popping 16- and 18-inch displays.
An All-New Zephyrus M16
Built with gamers and creators in mind, the Zephyrus M16 has been redesigned from the ground up with even more refined feel and upgraded performance. Its new chassis design allows for a larger, full-width heatsink into the machine paired with ROG’s Tri-Fan Technology. It routes air from three fans through precisely calculated cutouts toward the heatsink for more efficient cooling. This allows the Zephyrus M16 to reach 20W higher than last year’s model. This also makes it able to push the top-tier Intel Core i9-13900H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU as far as possible.
The laptop also features the Nebula HDR display powered by a Mini LED backlight. Its individual zones can brighten and dim individually for stunning contrast. It has up to 1100 nits of peak brightness, as well as having QHD resolution at a 250Hz refresh rate.
ROG has also pushed the craftsmanship to new heights with a new mirror-polishing technique. It is combined with the new Off Black color, which uses an exclusive nano-sandblasting finish for fingerprint resistance.
Lastly, the Zephyrus M16 is the second laptop ever to feature ROG’s iconic AniMe Matrix Display. The larger, 16-inch canvas allows for a larger, more beautiful animations than ever.
