The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 laptop aces its compact chassis and beautiful screen but has issues when it comes to power.
The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 is Asus’ latest attempt to jump in on the 16:10 laptop display trend, and by that metric, it does an astounding job. Its screen is a large 16 inches diagonally, but the laptop’s chassis is otherwise built for a 15-inch model, which makes for extremely thin bezels and a thin, portable device. The bright screen’s 2560 x 1600 resolution is also beautiful to look at, but when it comes to performance, this laptop has problems with pricing and with living up to cheaper and similarly priced Ryzen competitors.
Despite having a high-power, 11th gen Intel Core i9 processor and an RTX 3060 laptop GPU in our configuration, this laptop was outperformed by rivals across about half of our game testing library. And that makes it a hard sell given that it’s pretty expensive, too.
