Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

One of the best gaming laptops out there right now

Excellent gaming performance ; Lightweight and compact ; Clever design ; Plenty of ports ; Subtle, subdued RGB lights

Noisy, even in ‘silent’ mode ; Display doesn’t give you the promised sRGB coverage

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 is a portable powerhouse, boasting great gaming chops and incredible overall for non-gaming applications. In both style and performance, the GX502 straddles the gaming and productivity worlds nicely, while not necessarily...

Hands on: Hands on: Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 review

 

Asus's flagship gaming laptop (almost) goes back to basics

Much more palatable design ; Excellent performance ; Fast display refresh and response

No integrated webcam ; Could use more USB-C ports

Asus’s new, back-to-basics design for its flagship gaming laptop is much appreciated, rising in power level without compromising much on thinness and weight. However, cutting the integrated webcam is sure to annoy many fans, us included. All told, the...

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502GW review: Razer, beware

 

A beautifully balanced system with great speakers and all the performance that most people need

Solid keyboard ; Stellar performance ; Hi-res audio quality

Lacks webcam ; Fairly short battery life

So has Asus done enough to usurp Razer? In many ways, yes. It’s bigger than the Blade, but not by so much that it makes a huge difference day to day. Its performance is equally stellar and it’s cheaper, too. The only downside is that it isn’t as sleek,...

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Review: Thin Frame, Full RTX 2070

 

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 has a full-sized RTX 2070 in it that offers great performance, but it can get loud under load.

Thin design ; Clean durable build ; Great gaming performance

Loud fans ; RAM soldered down ; No webcam

The ROG Zephyrus S GX502 packs tons of power in as tight of a 15.6” package as possible, but at the detriment of cooling efficiency.

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502

 

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 is one of the slimmest, most versatile gaming laptops you can buy. With support for both G-Sync and Optimus, it's a high-power rig for play and a decent-battery one for productivity tasks.

Slim design with full-throttle GeForce RTX graphics. Optimus graphics mode greatly increases versatility. 240Hz G-Sync display. Narrow screen bezels. Keyboard back where it belongs. Per-key RGB keyboard backlighting.

Cooling fans get loud under load. Real-world gaming performance mostly in Max-Q range. No webcam.

Bottom Line: The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 is one of the slimmest, most versatile gaming laptops you can buy. With support for both G-Sync and Optimus, it's a high-power rig for play and a decent-battery one for productivity tasks.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 review – comes to shine in a world of Razer Blades and MSI GS65 Stealths

 

ASUS' ROG Zephyrus line-up is all-in thin and light gaming solutions. It was exactly the Zephyrus GX501 that started the niche of gaming ultrabooks. Now, the market is populated with the like…

Uncomfortable keyboard for gaming;Lacks Thunderbolt support;Goes pretty warm during gaming
