It packs a six-core Intel Coffee Lake i7-8750H processor and a full-throttle GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. This is cooled by the expanding Active Aerodynamic System similar to the original Zephyrus. This AAS dissipates over 125W despite the low profile design, plus it allows for cooler air to be drawn in when active. The gap on this AAS opens a few more millimeters wider than the Zephyrus GX501, improving the cooling even further. Plus, it is propped up on a shorter, sturdier panel than before. The laptop also has double-side blowers pulling air from above and vents between the keyboard and display. When necessary, these fans can also run at higher RPMs since it uses 12V power instead of 5V.
