With the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 just came out fresh from the oven, we’re already starting to see computers that are powered by this latest graphics card.

Interestingly, the initial machines that we have here are laptops. This is because NVIDIA announced that they now have RTX mobile cards, which will be powering new Max-Q design gaming laptops.

With that, what we’re taking a look here are the latest ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX701 and GX531. Both models are now equipped with the aforementioned GeForce RTX cards.

Much like their predecessors, the latest Zephyrus S machines has an ultra-thin and sleek design. Lifting the lid still exposes a vent at the bottom, which greatly improves airflow for better cooling.

ASUS is also trying to beat the system by using a detachable 1080p camera that shoots at 60fps. No awkward notch, or camera placement that points up your nose. However, these features are exclusive to the GX701 variant.

Also, another worth-mentioning inclusion is the Pantone-validated display, which is perfect for content creators. Moreover, a new volume roller was added for more intuitive volume adjustments. These are also special features that only the GX701 has.
