Zephyrus GX 531 sports 15-inch full HD 144 Hz display panel. The thin bezels around the screen provides immersive viewing experience.  The short response time and high refresh rate makes it one of the best choice for gaming. The colour accuracy, contrast and peak are decent but not great.

The GPU boosts upto 1330MHz at 90W, with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 6151MHz. Both can be overclocked.
