Asus unveiled the new ROG Zephyrus G14 during CES 2021. This highly portable gaming laptop has been updated with the latest Ryzen 5000 series CPU and RTX 30 series GPU. And great news, it’s finally available in Nepal. Here, we will be discussing the key specs of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 2021, along with its price and availability in Nepal.
Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (2021) Overview:
Equipped with AMD’s 8-core Ryzen 9 5900HS processor, the Zephyrus G14 can be configured with up to the RTX 3060 Max-Q GPU (65W). On the other hand, the lower-spec models will only get the GTX 1650 (50W) graphics although that’s not available in Nepal. And since 3060 is an RTX card, you can also enjoy NVIDIA’s high-end features such as ray-tracing and DLSS 2.0.
Display and Design
ROG Zephyrus G14 is a 14″ gaming laptop with two display variants. One is a 2K 120Hz model with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. However, those who want to save a few bucks can opt for the 1080p 144Hz option with 100% sRGB color instead. The 144Hz configuration is what’s available in Nepal for now.
Anyway, the Asus Zephyrus G14 retains the AniMe Matrix display on the lid. This time around, the company has also corporated Tamagotchi-style character animation into it. Like its predecessor, the color options available here are Eclipse Gray and Moonlight White.
Battery and Connectivity
Other specs include up to 48GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 1TB NVMe storage. Similarly, there’s a 76Wh battery with 180W charging via the AC adapter. You can also juice it up via one of the two USB-C ports, although the max power supply is restricted to 100W here.
In terms of I/O, the Zephyrus G14 has one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port (with DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery). Then there are 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, another USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C, and 1x HDMI 2.0b port. Furthermore, it brings Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 in terms of wireless connectivity.
Moving on, the 2021 edition of G14 also retains the Ergolift design. The main chassis lifts up from the rubber feet at the bottom of the screen. This helps to improve the airflow and aids in a more comfortable typing experience as well. The laptop draws in air from the bottom while it will let out hot air from the vents under the screen and from the sides.
Furthermore, liquid metal has been applied to the AMD CPU, which should help with the thermals as well. Zephyrus G14’s expensive sibling, the G15 also includes updated Arc Flow fans but that’s absent here.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (2021): Early thoughts
With an upgraded specs sheet and an attractive design, the Zephyrus G14 (2021) will certainly be a powerhouse of a portable laptop. Furthermore, Asus has retained the 1.6kg weight on this one, making it one of the most lightweight gaming laptops of the year.
The last-gen G14 was plagued by heating issues. So, I am looking forward to testing how this one will handle sustained loads. The G15 has also received an update and there’s the ROG Flow X13 too. So, they might take some limelight away from the Asus Zephyrus G14 (2021). Thus, we’ll be sure to review this one and give our detailed opinion about the new Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.
