ASUS keeps the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 gaming laptop cool through its ROG Intelligent Cooling technology, which will chill the CPU + GPU as much as it can.

ASUS has shifted into a very thin-and-light design with the new ROG Zephyrus M16 gaming laptop, with the company using an Off Black theme, with Prismatic Film through CNC-milled perforations. It looks great, and won't' stand out from the crowd too much -- but it also doesn't look boring, either. I love the back of the laptop... it looks so good.
