The Strix line, Zephyrus series, and the Flowline are each going to get an upgrade of their own from function, variable resolution, and looks. Additionally, all laptops will also come with a built-in Multiplexer (MUX) switch for better performance, ROG’s Intelligent Cooling system for better system maintenance, a Wi-Fi 6e for stable and fast connection, and an upgraded 16:10 aspect ratio for display.
