AMD is here to stay. Or has returned, rather. After a few years in which, simply, they were not an option for desktop, and less for laptops, the Ryzen demonstrate that the North American company continues to know how to make processors. In fact, one of the latest APUs brings to life an Asus laptop, the Zephyrus G14 that we give you our opinion on in this review.
Many companies have laptops and gaming equipment, but when we talk about “inbred” products, we are referring to those created by brands such as Asus, Gigabyte, MSI … brands that have “a lifetime” creating plates, custom graphics cards, boxes, accessories and also gaming laptops.
They are brands whose products have something special, and it shows that they have been creating games devices for a long time. As we say, Asus is among them and in its portfolio of gaming laptops there are different products, from the most aggressive laptops that mount the most powerful components to others that are thinner, weigh less and are very powerful, but also more portable.
After a few weeks working and, above all, playing with the new Zephyrus, we go with its analysis. This is the opinion of the Asus Zephyrus G14, a gaming laptop that may well be in any office. But before, we leave you its technical characteristics in which … yes, you can see that the CPU is not from Intel, but from AMD.
