Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401 2020 Review

Asus announced the ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401 at CES 2020. With its impressive price to performance ratio and impressively built quality, it quickly became the best 14 Inch gaming laptop of 2020 with the highest-end model being powered by the 8 core AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS which outperforms intel’s i9 9980HK, and on the graphics end we have Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q Graphics which is a solid mid-range GPU for laptops. This is paired with an excellent 120Hz FHD display with an sRGB rating of 100% and a magnesium-aluminum chassis weighing in at only 1.6Kg or 3.5 lbs making it a solid laptop for content creation and a portable gaming solution.
