RoG unveils a special edition of the Zephyrus 14G in the colors of DJ Alan Walker

ASUS has just formalized the product of its collaboration with Alan Walker, namely a special edition of the excellent Zephyrus G14 in the colors of the DJ.

ASUS Republic of Gamers today unveiled a new edition of its Zephyrus G14 in the colors of Alan Walker, the famous DJ known in particular for his title Faded. A collaboration that might seem strange, but it is not so; the artist already has certain references in the world of video games, since he notably participated in the soundtrack of Death Stranding.

Compared to equivalently priced models of the standard G14, this edition will benefit from a substantial gain in CPU; it will be equipped with a AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS, with 8 cores for 16 threads rated at 3GHz and capable of climbing up to 4.6GHz. The graphics card also changes; exit the GeForce RTX 2060, which now gives way to a RTX 3050 Ti. Everything will be accompanied by 16GB DDR4 RAM clocked at 3200 MHz.

Display level, we will find a slab IPS WQHDcapable of turning 120Hz and to cover 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut. In terms of connectivity, this edition has the WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. The keys are obviously backlit, even though it is only a membrane keyboard. The whole machine weighs in total 1.7kga very reasonable weight which should make it a perfect travel companion.

Play DJ with… the packing box!

But as often with these special editions, the most obvious changes are to be found on the side of the acrylic chassis. This special edition of the Zephyrus G14 presents a unique color and an LED interface called AniMe MatrixTM. The set gives the machine a slightly “cyberpunk” look, which is very popular with gamers at the moment. But ROG decided to push the concept further, making use of… the box.

Indeed, for this Alan Walker edition, the box is not just a simple packaging. It can connect to the computer via a simple USB-C cable to turn into a real sampler! Once connected to software called ROG Remix, it is possible to press different conductive areas arranged on the box to activate 18 different sound effects, chosen by the DJ himself. A feature that seems very anecdotal and not necessarily useful for a real artist, and will certainly remain at the gimmick stage.

On the other hand, we can only validate the initiative to use packaging creatively ! Hopefully more brands follow this path, possibly with more relevant functions. Finally, this special edition laptop is sold with exclusive accessories: a cap and a pair of socks stamped Alan Walker x ROG as well as a protective ROG pouch.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition is already available in France, exclusively in FNAC stores as well as on the Asus Store, at a price of 1999€.
