Asus Strix GL502VM-DS74 Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review

 

Kaby Lake gamer. Asus has refreshed its portable GL502VM series with Kaby Lake and... not much else. Don't expect any tangible benefits in gaming performance or even battery life out of this Xotic PC SKU.

strong CPU and GPU performance ; steady fan noise under low loads ; G-Sync standard w/ no Optimus ; FHD and UHD display options ; NVMe SSD + 2.5-inch SATA III ; GTX 1060/1070 options ; easy serviceability ; relatively thin ; rigid chassis

no 120 Hz/5 ms display options ; relatively soft keyboard keys ; loud fan noise when gaming ; no Killer WLAN options ; speakers lack bass ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; short battery life

The Asus GL502VM is a slim 15.6-inch gaming laptop.The powerful hardware allows this model to run most games at high to maximum settings. In addition, Nvidia G-Sync enables smoother processing of frames. At load, the laptop gets really loud and the...
