2023 Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 now on sale with Mini LED and Zen 4

The new G14 can be purchased from Best Buy or on Asus’ website for an alleged starting price of $1,429.99. However, I don’t see a model available at this price on the Asus store, but I’ve found several models currently being sold at Best Buy. It looks like the $1,429.99 model includes an Nvidia RTX 4050, a Ryzen 7 7735HS, 16GB of DDR5 memory, and 512GB of storage. I’m not going to recommend that most people buy that model (the combination of the power-efficient RTX 4050 and limited storage isn’t great value), so the real party starts at $1,599.99 for an RTX 4060 and a Ryzen 9 7940HS ( the best processor option); For $1,849.99 you get an RTX 4070.

Also on the way is a new convertible 13-inch ROG Flow X13 powered by AMD (not to be confused with the chaotic ROG Flow Z13, which is a tablet). The Flow X13 also supports Advanced Optimus and comes with one of the first 13-inch iterations of Asus’ Nebula display: the QHD panel, which previously maxed out at 120Hz, now goes down to 165Hz. The battery has also gotten bigger – which is great, as short battery life was my biggest issue with the 2021 device.

I haven’t been able to find any Flow X13 models on the Asus site, and Asus hasn’t given an estimated price, but the product also comes with a Ryzen 9 7940HS, an RTX 4070, 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

What is currently on shelves is the XG Mobile, Asus’ eGPU that can be connected to the Flow X13 for better performance. This includes an RTX 4090 GPU with a maximum TPG of 150W. As I mentioned in my review of the 2021 X13, seeing these kind of heavy frame rates come from a 13-inch laptop is pretty remarkable. It’s not cheap though – the listed model is $1,999.99.
