    Je le mets en mode performance que lorsque j’en ai besoin. Très puissant même sans. Calculs intenses par exemple. Oui les ventilateurs tournent et on les entend très bien alors, mais pas désagréable. Très content de cet achat. C’est mon nouvel ordi coup de coeur. La palette en dessous est bienvenue car il n’y a pas de grilles de ventilation qui peuvent être obstruées en le posant sur soi par exemple. la circulation d’air est autour.

    It has it's drawbacks, sure. Intel runs a bit hotter than the competition, which means this laptop spins up the fans unusually loud if you're used to a more spacious chassis. If not, then this will be similar to other thin and light gaming laptops running a full TDP CPU and GPU - which there are very few of since this is a bit of a technological feat.

    Since this released in mid-2020, the landscape looks a bit different these days. You can get better CPU performance with less power draw since CPU's (notably AMD's) are more... fuel efficient. This laptop is still running a V8 Hemi, and it performs accordingly.

    Still, as I am writing this in early 2021 with the new horizon of next-gen laptops coming ever more into view, there are some things going for this that still have value today. Gaming performance is still top-tier for a thin and light. You just aren't seeing other laptops running a 115W TDP GPU - anything comparable in the 30 series is right now running a Max-Q variant that, in early gaming benchmarks, struggles to keep up. While the new 30 series have an edge in ray-tracing performance, they just can't match the grunt until you get into higher TDP 3070's or low-TDP 3080's. And again, unless you are looking at a 3080 Max-Q, the 3070 Max-Q is just barely holding a candle in gaming performance.

    The CPU is AMD machines being released today will wipe the floor with the Intel in this device... sortof. Synthetic benchmarks show a substantial difference, however, in real life the difference doesn't end up being significant. It runs a bit hotter, sure, but it's still running 8 cores at full-speed. In the end the performance difference isn't game-changing, it'll at best save you a couple mins on rendering a 30-min 4K movie. The main difference here, as mentioned before, is the efficiency = lower temps and quieter fans. Oh, and battery takes a bit of a hit. In the end - you're losing an hour on battery. Where you're seeing 4-5 hours on this device, you'd be seeing 4.5-6 hours on an AMD machine.

    All in all you are getting the full-powered package here in a super thin and light device that's super portable, albeit with a couple tradeoffs. In the end it's a compelling value proposition if you are getting this well below MSRP - while it might have had a case being $2999 CAD 6/7 months ago, if it's priced lower than a device with a 3070 Max-Q thin and light, it's worth it.

    Pros:
    Excellent keyboard
    Beautiful chassis
    Very portable, thin and light
    Lots of horsepower for gaming and CPU-intensive tasks (video editing)
    Beautiful screen - super smooth and gorgeous colours
    Great battery life

    Cons:
    Battery life is great but newer, more power efficient devices will have it beat
    Runs hot compared to current-gen devices for similar performance
    When it gets hot, it gets loud
    Screen is gorgeous and gets adequately bright for most conditions, but not bright enough for outdoor use

     Wanted this laptop for a vm experiment and to run some rtx games; the rtx games ran great could be a little smoother but again it’s a laptop. The fans get loud when running games and the body gets hot so a cooling stand is recommended also a head set so you don’t hear the fans. Can handle audio and some video editing but nothing extreme.

    The Zephyrus S15 is a well designed machine, but one of the biggest negatives is trying to push a 2080 Super Max Q with a i7 10875h in a small thin chassis which when checking through Intel XTU will boost to 135w, while this is good for sitting on a desk and plugging into a good monitor that isn't what most would buy a laptop for, its kinda portable if not a tiny bit heavy, its cooling is decent but when combined with that i7 and 2080 Super it will get hot and with the chassis being made of metal it transfers a lot of heat to the metal, it was reaching 85-90c while playing Final Fantasy XIV while it did keep FPS pretty high it also was really loud, I could hear it whining through ANC headphones.

    FPS:
    Destiny 2 (Low no AA) Average - 105 FPS
    Genshin Impact (Max Graphics) - 60 FPS (because of locks)
    Final Fantasy XIV (Max Laptop Settings + GShade) - 90-140FPS

    Gaming on this laptop will get the job done. The pre-installed software takes a bit of time to set up properly (fan control etc.) and the McAfee interferes with multiplayer connection sometimes. Beyond that, the wifi card is just okay, but a cable will be better. The keyboard is decently comfortable, but will get hot when the 2080 super hits mid 70 temps but plugging a real keyboard will remedy. Honestly, when every kink is worked out, it slaps pretty hard. Gaming best while home, and edits content and runs DAWs fine on the go. I just wish there were more built in USB ports but they understandably only had so much space to work with.

    Very nice computer, very slick, beautifully packaged and designed. Everything was great right out of the box and it played almost all of my games perfectly. Except it wouldn't play Boneworks despite (according to the specs) exceeding all of the recommended hardware requirements, and Boneworks is the primary reason that I bought this computer. When trying to run, Boneworks kept telling me that the CPU was not up to snuff, and I couldn't figure it out until I ran MSINFO (see image) and discovered that the CPU is actually 2.3 GHz! After some back and forth with the seller, it seems that Intel describes the CPU as "Base speed: 2.3 GHz" but with "Intel Turbo Max Boost" something-or-other the CPU speed can be "up to" 5.1 GHz. Great, except that Intel Turbo Max Boost whatever apparently isn't boosting the CPU "up to" 5.1 GHz when Boneworks needs it to. Had some words with the seller until they agreed to take it back and pay the return shipping, because this computer IS NOT AS DESCRIBED BY AMAZON. I don't care what the "up to" speed is, the CPU speed on this computer is 2.3 GHz--NOT 5.1 GHz.
    Other than that, it a fine laptop computer.

    Zephyrus S15, 32G RAM, 1G HD, 2080 S MAX-Q unboxing & first day review

    Well packed in a sturdy box. Unlike the accessories some reviewers in here say they received with their laptop, with this one I got the laptop and one charger. That's it. But for the price it was going for I can't complain.

    The laptop feels extremely sturdy, you feel like you're holding a metal chassis when you pick it up rather than plastic. Surprisingly small and light but I'm coming from a 2017 Alienware M15 which weighs like an anvil. Boots up quickly and the keyboard lights are beautiful. There is however one (and only one) problem I've found and it's related to the keyboard: as other reviewers have noted, the shift- superscripts above the number keys (not sure what those are called) are not visible in the dark. The number keys are, but the illumination doesn't extend to the superscript, so you have to have memorized that * is shift-8 if you're gaming in a dark room. I'm really not sure how a design decision like that made it onto a premium laptop like this.

    It's -almost- a dealbreaker, and it might be for you. It's not for me because yeah, I know where the * and other symbols are, it's just a habit to look for them, and the hardware configuration of this laptop is so unusual for the price ($2299 US). 32G ram is rare, and if you mod the crap out of games like skyrim, fallout4 or new vegas you can run out of memory on 8G, if you're playing a resource intensive game on one monitor and have steam, HWINFO, process explorer and a bunch of tabs in your browser open on the other one I felt like 32G would be a better option than 16 if I could find it. Most laptops come with one 512G SSD, and how suitable that is comes down to how much you intend to install, what kind of wallpaper/mp3/mp4 junkie you are, how bad you are about downloading large mods etc. I'm bad and my backlog of games on steam is huge, so 1G is the preferred option as it means less time policing up my disk usage. All in all the hardware in this laptop far outweighs the annoyance of the dim shift-key lights.

    The keys feel comfortable with a small range of travel that feels similar to my Alienware. Unlike what I read in other reviews (that seemed to be for different laptops in this family, make sure you read what device they're reviewing, does amazon stick them all together?) Armour wasn't missing, it was right where it was supposed to be in the start menu. I have the fans set for performance and the noise wasn't nearly as loud as I'd expected from reading other reviews. In fact I think my alienware fans were louder. I haven't yet played any resource-intensive games so can't speak to that, but I modded up skyrim with 100+ mods and some big texture packs and the GPU temps never got above 61 (but I wouldn't expect them to on that game). I don't buy high performance laptops for the battery (seems odd to me that some apparently do, knowing a configuration like this is going to eat the battery) so I don't care about battery life.

    It doesn't include a webcam. Good. If haxxors want to look at my pretty face they can haxxor my phone.

    Will post more after more use.

    edit: a few days later
    Crossout, 76 degrees on the GPU, 235 FPS (three wins lol)
    Deep Rock Galactic, 77 degrees, 264-280 FPS
    Fallout NV, heavily modded, biggest texture packs I could find: 56 degrees, 88 FPS (wtf bethesda)

    edit: a few weeks later
    Hardware top-notch, no complaints
    keyboard lighting still consistently irritating (see above somewhere)
    Armory Crate is absolutely freaking maddening. Not that it doesn't work, it does, but it's got an annoying feature. It sets a profile for each game, which is fine, but there's a setting for volume. You set the games initial volume. It ignores whatever you have windows volume set at and pops it right back to the setting in armory crate. Now you have three places to go to dick with the volume in your game--the game itself, windows, and freaking armory crate. I'm tempted to uninstall the stupid thing except the fan control is good.
    Fallout3 & 4 do not run on this laptop (at least not mine). Something is conflicting and I haven't found it yet. No problems with newer games though. FalloutNV does run, which is weird as I think it came between 3&4.
    Less bloatware than my alienware had.
    All in all a great laptop, but quirky. I've considered sending it back for an alienware but those have their own quirks and the hardware was too good for the price. There are enough irritating quirks that I wouldn't pay list though. Wait until it goes on sale.

    edit: 9 months? later

    This remains a fantastic unit. No hardware or configuration problems at all, not a single hiccup out of this thing. I noted previously the keyboard lighting, but I use a reddragon mechanical keyboard so who cares. Laptop keyboard doesn't get blazing hot during gaming the way I get the impression it should from reading other reviews. Armorycrate is kind of wtf, I don't have much use for it but I ignore it and it seems okay with that. Fallout76 wouldn't run (black screen) but you'll start to notice a pattern there: all the games I have trouble with come from bethesda. On that note I stopped blaming the laptop.

    Highly recommended.

My GPU usually hangs around 72⁰ while the CPU gets more toasty, at about 84⁰. I haven't noticed any thermal throttling yet, so that's a plus. The build quality is pretty good, metal lid, hard plastic interior. Doesn't feel cheap. I would recommend this for anyone who has the money over other branded laptops with similar specs.

    The product is great for gaming, which is the reason I bought it. The frames are great, the system runs thing very fast, and it steals internet speed which is a positive for the user and negative for anyone else on the internet.

    The issues I have with it are the fact that the charger itself heats up quickly. If too many items are plugged into the laptop (cooling pad, mouse, USBs, etc.) the charger get very hot and causes the laptop to underperform.
    Also, the volume on this expensive laptop is average at best. It doesn't get very loud and the quality is meh. However, this doesn't really matter if you're wearing a headset.

    The audio jack stopped working. I only purchased this laptop 3-4 moths ago. To make a long story short, Asus support had me do everything from reinstalling drivers to factory resetting the laptop and nothing worked. The only option they gave me is to send it in for a minimum of 2 weeks plus shipping. Not really an option as I use this for school and work as well. So I'm stuck with a broken laptop and there is nothing I can do about it as Asus has exactly ZERO authorized repair centers. I cant even return it at this point.

    As far as performance goes, the laptop's thermals are straight garbage and throttles under moderate load. Dont get baited by the specs

    Easy setup with the provided tools. Performance is even faster than I expected, reboots only take 35 seconds making the initial installs really quick. Graphic quality is amazing with NVIDIA GeForce Experience making configuring game settings simple. There is some fan noise when they kick up to full speed but it is easy to get used to. This is my 3rd Asus computer, I highly recommend them!

    After much research and a lot of comparison shopping based on internal/external features and price point, the Asus Zephyrus S15 rose to the top of my contenders list. Others in consideration were also from Asus; second place was the Strix Scar III, primarily due to its i9 processor, and not because of any other features; both models are pretty equally appointed.

    The Zephyrus S15 is beautifully constructed, and certainly designed with the avid gamer in mind. While I haven't had mine but a few days, so far I am impressed by the the many ways Asus has made this machine so easy to configure to the individual needs of the user. The interchangeable graphics [for general computing vs. gaming] configurations was a strong selling point for me. About 80% of my time is spent doing online research and handling vast amounts of digitized records, the remaining 20% is gaming, so to have a machine that gives me essentially the best of both worlds is truly a thing of beauty.

    So far the Pros:
    Solid construction, nothing about this machine feels cheap.

    Keyboard is comfortable to use and responds quickly; new F key layout is easy to adapt to and intuitive. Aura sync is a nice addition to night gaming in a completely dark room.

    Fast! i7 Gen 10, 8 core Intel processor has little or no lag time during general use, and so far has effortlessly kept up with the demands of intensely detailed game graphics. [Atmospheric Adventure games, not FP Shooter or arcade style] with very short wait times between chapter loads, and smooth as silk rendering with the RTX Nvidia 2080S GPU.

    Screen view feels much bigger than it is. With the very narrow bezels it's more like viewing a 17" model than a 15.6.

    Cons:
    Only one truly annoying downfall...Fan noise is extremely Loud in Performance and Turbo modes. So much so that I will be investing in a headset with noise cancellation. The noise may not be such an issue for other genre gamers, but Adventure/Point & Click games have tons of dialog that is almost impossible to hear without turning the volume way up.

    In spite of the very elaborate cooling system in this model there is still considerable heat. Not enough to feel uncomfortable to the touch, but certainly more than I was expecting...but maybe this will become a positive through long cold New England winters =D

    This purchase is an upgrade from an Asus Strix GL502VT I bought new four years ago, that runs every bit as well as it did on day one; I've had zero issues with the Strix machine and while like most ROG machines it's upgradable [unlike other laptop brands that are not] I decided to buy new and give this older model to my daughter. I have every confidence that she will continue to get solid performance from it for years to come.

    Given my experience with the Strix machine I am looking forward to a very long relationship with the Zephyrus.

    The laptop is very fast, the keyboard is very comfortable, the screen is excellent quality, the games run very well in the highest settings, the temperatures are the average of the market, nothing remarkable are normal, the sound is good but not very high.

    Very good buy.

    Update:

    After 3 months the right fan is dead, very sad for that.
