Whether you're a digital artist, streamer, video editor, or dabble with animation and game development, the Strix G18 has all the horsepower you need to take your creations to the next level. Featuring an Intel Core i9-14900HX processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Series Laptop GPU, complex projects on popular development tools like Unity and Autodesk render in a snap. You have what it takes to be the best on the battlefield, but are you ready to design the next one?
ROG Intelligent Cooling
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix G18's chassis and motherboard were both designed to accommodate ASUS' high-performance, full-width heatsink, whose fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. The full-width heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely-packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm2, a 92% increase from the 2022 Strix G17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall airflow.

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the G18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes, the G18's cooling system is a marvel of engineering.
Full-Surround Vents
Hot air needs somewhere to go, so ASUS redesigned the G18's exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the G18 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. ASUS even moved the heat sinks closer to the vents themselves, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine so any recirculation is avoided.
Full-Width Heat Sink
The G18 features 374 heat sink fins, with each stack lined with thin copper as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, providing a total of 195,509mm2 of surface area - an increase of 92% from the 2022 Strix G17. The improved full-width design is double the size of a typical laptop heat sink and covers the entire rear of the machine.
Tri-Fan Technology
At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. ASUS' Tri-Fan Technology directs air through precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heat sinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.
Up to 7 Comprehensive Heatpipes
The Strix G18's comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. With 7 heatpipes, this extensive thermal solution helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.
0 dB Ambient Cooling
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0 dB Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
Dust Filter
First introduced on the Zephyrus G14, the ROG Strix G18 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.
0.1mm Ultra-Thin Fin
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heat sinks, each lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. With up to 374 heatsink fins totaling 195,509mm2 of surface area, heat flows out of the system incredibly efficiently, letting your components boost higher, for longer.
CoolZone Keyboard
Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard warm to the touch. To keep your fingers cool, small vents around the WASD keys let the fans draw cool air into the chassis from above.
Scenario Profiles
ASUS' Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between those modes based on the application you're running, alongside other vital system settings. Switch between lighting configurations automatically, disable the Windows key and touchpad during games, and automate to your heart's content. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand.
ROG Nebula Display
You can't beat the enemy if you don't see them coming. The Strix G18 has ultra-fast panel options for every scenario, making sure you'll never miss a moment. This 16" machine offers a 2.5K 240 Hz Nebula display. A 16:10 panel with 500 nits of brightness, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and 3 ms response times, the Strix G18 has pixel-perfect precision even in the most frenetic firefights.
Dolby Vision Technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision makes media look better. The technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.
Pantone Color Validation
Each IPS-level display is factory calibrated to ensure that colors are accurate to the Pantone palette. Artists, designers, and content creators can add high quality content to their portfolios and enjoy richer gaming visuals on the same machine.
100% DCI-P3 Color Coverage
While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 75% of the DCI-P3 spectrum used for professional filmmaking. Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut and rich color, and let you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be seen.
Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With NVIDIA G-SYNC, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU's frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.
TUV Rhineland Certification
Displays emit light across a broad spectrum that unfortunately includes some less desirable wavelengths. Nebula Display protects your eyes by reducing blue light before it leaves the screen, preventing eyestrain during long gaming or content creation sessions.
Designed to Win, Built for Victory
The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs come with gamers in mind, from the chassis, lighting integration, software controls, and macro functions. These ROG exclusive design features not only give you a competitive advantage, but they make sure you never blend in with the crowd.
Endless Customization
When you want to tweak settings, monitor temperatures, or tinker with your laptop, Armoury Crate is your command center. Real time monitoring allows you to see what your GPU, CPU, and memory are doing. RGB can be adjusted on a game-by-game basis with Aura Sync. Fan and power profiles allow you to change the acoustics, power delivery, and thermal characteristics of the laptop on the fly. And exclusive game deals keep your library topped off at all times.
Performance Modes
More than just simple fan curves, Armoury Crate's performance modes serve to transform your machine from a silent, power sipping web browser to a full gaming battlestation with maximum horsepower. And for those that require even more granular control, Manual Mode removes all limiters and lets you make a custom profile that suits your exact needs.
Macro Keys
Armoury Crate also supports full customization of the dedicated hotkeys. By default, they act as volume control, microphone mute, and a quick launch for Armoury Crate, but with a few adjustments, you can make them work for you. Create a function key for quick toggle when needed, a macro for complicated button combinations, or even a quick launch button for the application of your choice. Make your machine uniquely yours.
Game Visual
ROG GameVisual software offers six expertly tuned graphic modes designed to optimize your visual experience for specific game genres. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhanced visibility in dark environments, allowing you to get the drop on enemies lurking in the shadows. Use GameVisual to get the best experience for every game in your library.
Aura Creator
Customize the RGB lighting on Aura-compatible peripherals to suit your gaming style. Aura Core's easy-to-use control panel allows you to alter a brilliant spectrum of lighting effects and colors, in addition to swapping preset lighting modes, you can also activate Aura Sync to match colors and effects across multiple devices.

Armoury Cate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand, and you can configure each profile exactly how you want.
Keyboard - Press the Attack
The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the Strix G18 has a full-size keyboard designed to secure the win. Overstroke technology offers sublime work and play, reducing key actuation and improving responsiveness. Built with gamers in mind, the keyboard features spaced function keys for intuitive identification and dedicated hotkeys for quick access to essential commands. Large arrow keys allow for more accurate control in the heat of battle. A larger touchpad means easier tracking across all of your applications, while per-key RGB lighting lets you choose from millions of colors on every key for endless customization. You can also create game specific layouts via Armoury Crate, making every game feel unique.
Dedicated Hotkeys
Dedicated gaming hotkeys sit just above the left side of the keyboard for quick access to the volume and mic mute controls, operating modes, and Armoury Crate. They are also fully customizable, and can be programmed to launch apps, set as a function key, or used as a macro. The Strix G18 has all the tools you need for victory.
Overstroke Technology
Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology registers keypresses earlier in the stroke, enabling a more responsive experience for serious gaming and work. Triggering earlier means faster, effortless inputs with greater accuracy.
