Performance

1.RAM

16GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.RAM speed
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401IV 14" AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS 3GHz / 16GB RAM / 1TB SSD
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
4.CPU speed
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
5.internal storage

1000GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
6.maximum memory size

32GB

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
