AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS Debut: Asus Zephyrus G15 GA502IU Laptop Review

Beating Core i9 with less power. Even the slowest mobile Ryzen 7 H-series Renoir CPU is able outperform most laptops running on the latest 10th gen Core i7 Comet Lake-H CPU. Though raw CPU performance is excellent, the $1300 asking for price of the Zephyrus G15 is a bit high considering the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU.

The Asus Zephyrus G15 GA502IU is an update to last year's GA502DU. It replaces the older 12 nm Zen+ Ryzen 7 3750H with the newer 7 nm Zen 2 Ryzen 7 4800HS while keeping almost everything else the same. Thus, our comments about the chassis and physical features of the GA502DU will apply here on the GA502IU.

Our test unit retails for about $1300 USD on Xotic PC while the higher-end GeForce RTX 2060 configuration retails for $1400 USD (GA502IV). Though the Ryzen 7 4800HS CPU is fixed, users can choose between a 144 Hz or 240 Hz 1080p matte display each with adaptive sync. Competitors include other budget to mid-range 15.6-inch gaming laptops like the Razer Blade 15 Base Model, Gigabyte Aorus 15, MSI GL65, or the 2020 HP Omen 15.

Gamers willing to spend more may want to consider the higher-end Asus ROG Zephyrus S series or Strix Scar series.

Case

The chassis is sleek, lightweight and very thin when compared to other $1000 gaming laptops that tend to be thicker and heavier. The Acer Nitro 5 and MSI GL series, for example, come with many of the same hardware features as our Asus and yet they are arguably less attractive and more cheaply made. The GA502 series uses similar plastic materials but it is able to better hide the generic plastic look than others in the same price category. In other words, it looks like a high-end gaming machine without needing to resort to costly metal alloys.

Chassis rigidity is still weaker than other thin-and-light gaming laptops like the Razer Blade 15, MSI GS66, or Asus' own Zephyrus S series. The lid and keyboard center, for example, twist and depress more easily with applying pressure.

Connectivity

There is a healthy selection of integrated ports including RJ-45, HDMI, and USB-C with DisplayPort support. Thunderbolt 3 is not supported and there is no SD card reader.

Port positioning is unfavorable for left-handed users because the ports are very close upfront.

Communication

The Intel AX200 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity as opposed to the slower RealTek Wi-Fi 5 module on last year's GA502DU. We experienced no issues when paired to our Netgear RAX200 test router.

Webcam

There is no integrated webcam which Asus says is due to the very narrow bezels around the display. However, newer Ultrabooks like the latest XPS 15, XPS 17, or 2020 HP Spectre have proven that it's possible to have an integrated webcam without sacrificing narrow bezels or positioning.

Maintenance

The bottom panel takes patience to remove since there are a total of 15 screws. Internals are otherwise identical to last year's GA502DU save for some slight changes to the heat pipes.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited warranty applies with extension options of up to four years from Xotic PC. Users must register within 60 days of purchase and shipping fees are covered in one direction only.

Input Devices

Keyboard and Touchpad

We weren't fans of the keyboard and clickpad on the GA502DU and so it's disappointing to see them unchanged on the GA502IU. Feedback remains spongier and with shallower travel than on the MSI SteelSeries keyboards while the dark gray font contrasts poorly with the dark key caps. We do, however, like the useful row of auxiliary keys along the top and the extra column of keys along the right edge. But for general typing, a ZenBook will do you better.

Gliding across the Precision clickpad (10.5 x 7.5 cm) is smooth at medium to high speeds while it tends to stick when gliding at slower speeds. The integrated mouse keys feel unsatisfying to press due to the weak and spongy feedback.

Display

One of our main criticisms about last year's GA502DU was its average 60 Hz display. For this year, Asus has dropped both the 60 Hz and 120 Hz options to make 144 Hz and 240 Hz the new standards. Unfortunately, the 144 Hz panel has both noticeably slower response times and a narrower color space than most other 144 Hz panels for shallower colors and more noticeable ghosting, respectively. This is because the GA502IU is still using IPS panels sourced from Panda instead of superior panels from AU Optronics or Sharp.

The 240 Hz option supposedly addresses the main issues of the 144 Hz panel as Asus is promising both 3 ms response times and 100 percent sRGB coverage compared to 15 ms and 58 percent coverage, respectively, on our 144 Hz unit. Our results below reflect only the 144 Hz panel option.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is narrow for a gaming laptop at just 58 percent of sRGB or 37 percent of AdobeRGB compared to full sRGB coverage on many mid-range to high-end alternatives like the MSI GS66 or Razer Blade 15.

X-Rite measurements show a decently calibrated display out of the box with average grayscale and color DeltaE values of 4.2 and 5.15, respectively. Color temperature, however, is too cool. Calibrating the display ourselves would improve colors and grayscale across the board. Note that colors become increasingly more inaccurate at higher saturation levels even after calibration due to the narrow color space mentioned above.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
25.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.2 ms rise
↘ 10.4 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 46 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
24.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.6 ms rise
↘ 12.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17507 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is worse than most other 15.6-inch gaming laptops as the maximum display brightness here is only about 250 nits compared to the 300-nit average for the category. Furthermore, users must remember to disable AMD Vari-Bright or else maximum brightness will drop to just 152 nits when running on batteries to impact visibility even more. Dedicated Ultrabooks like the ZenBook Pro 15 or XPS 15 have brighter displays for easier viewing when outdoors.

Performance

The Asus GA502 series is notable for being one of the first laptops to ship with the 8-core Ryzen 7 4800HS. Unlike the full-power 45 W Ryzen 7 4800H, the 4800HS targets a lower 35 W TDP in order to fit in smaller chassis designs like the GA502. It's still an immense upgrade over the last generation 4-core Ryzen 7 3750H and AMD is still marketing it as a competitor to the popular 8-core Core i9-9880H or i7-10875H.

Graphics options are limited to either the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q or RTX 2060. It would have been interesting to see the Radeon RX 5500M or 5600M with AMD SmartShift support instead a la the Dell G5 15 SE, but Nvidia GPUs are arguably "safer" options when it comes to compatibility and drivers. FreeSync comes standard on all SKUs.

We used Asus' Turbo mode to run all performance benchmarks below for the best possible scores. We suggest becoming familiar with the Asus Armoury Crate software as both fan noise and performance are closely tied to it.

8 GB of RAM is soldered with one SODIMM expansion slot for a total of up to 40 GB.

 

Processor

CPU performance is neck-to-neck with the 45 W Core i7-10875H in both single-thread and multi-thread performance even though the Ryzen 7 4800HS is a 35 W part. Performance sustainability is good as well when running CineBench R15 xT in a loop as shown by the graph below. Most notably, the Ryzen 9 4900HS in the Zephyrus G14 is only about 10 percent faster at best even before factoring in any performance throttling.

See our dedicated page on the Ryzen 7 4800HS for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are well above the older GA502DU powered by the last generation Ryzen 7 3750H while being just shy of the Eluktronics RP-15 running on the full-power Ryzen 7 4800H. We experienced no software or hardware issues during our time with the unit even though its Armoury Crate software could use some work.

Storage Devices

Asus is sticking with mid-range Intel 660p NVMe SSDs for its mid-range GA502 series whereas pricier Asus ROG laptops like the Zephyrus Duo may come with faster Samsung drives instead. The 1 TB Intel SSD in our unit is rated for maximum read and write rates of 1800 MB/s each compared to 3000 MB/s or greater on the Samsung PM981 series.

Users have access to two internal storage bays (M.2 2280 + M.2 2242). Note that the smaller M.2 2242 bay is PCIe x2 only.

Gaming Performance

The cheaper Dell G5 15 SE with the Radeon RX 5600M is about 10 to 20 percent faster than our Asus when gaming albeit at much higher power consumption levels. Frame rates can be anywhere from 5 to 35 percent faster than the older DA502DU depending on how CPU intensive the game may be even though our DA502IU uses the same GPU. Metro Exodus on low 720p settings, for example, is 26 percent faster on the DA502IU which will certainly help to make the most of the high refresh rate display.
