Today, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has officially launched its new laptop - the Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition - in collaboration with the legendary artist, DJ, and producer Alan Walker.
Alan Walker has developed an interest in computers, programming, and graphic design at a young age. He has previously produced tracks for games like PUBG Mobile and Death Stranding, making him an acclaimed artist in the gaming industry. ROG's new 14-inch laptop combines Walker's unique style with the practicality required for self-made creators.
The Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition is powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor with 8 cores and 16 threads, as well as NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. The high-performance new laptop is suitable for gamers and creators along with its high portability.
Designed in collaboration with Walker, the laptop features exclusive unique colour accents like the Spectre Blue shade of the AniMe Matrix LED array. As for the nameplate, the laptop sports the ROG logo along with Walker's own signature next to it. The nameplate is made with a "physical vapor deposition process for an enticing reflectivity that changes from different angles". On the lid, there are two fabric belts with one of them using reflective text that blends with the matrix LEDs.
According to ROG, the laptop box is more than just packaging as it will turn into the ROG remix sampler when connected with the laptop with a USB Type-C cable. Users will be able to play 18 of Walker's own sound effects by triggering the conductive pads on the surface of the box. Additionally, users can also import their own music into the custom software developed by Walker and his team. The ROG remix kit will also display ROG and Alan Walker-inspired animations on the laptop screen and the AniMe Matrix panel depending on the MIDI inputs selected.
The new laptop will come with a custom boot animation and Alan Walker's wallpaper whereas the glass touchpad will feature a customised pattern inspired by a music equaliser alongside keycaps that match Walker's signature colour. ROG will also release a bundle consisting of an Alan Walker and ROG-styled baseball cap, a pair of socks, and a special edition ROG sleeve.
The Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition will launch in Malaysia in September 2021.
