Asus FX502VM-AS73

The Asus FX502VM-AS73 is a reasonably priced entry-level gaming laptop. It packs the latest 7th gen Intel processor, Windows 10, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics in a compact and lightweight design. With a profile measuring just 23.5 mm and tipping the scales at a lightweight 2.2 kg, the Asus FX502VM has an ultra-portable design that fits snugly in a messenger bag or backpack. The jet-black chassis of the FX502VM contrasts the silver and orange found on higher-end ROG models like the G75x or G701 series. Its build quality is solid including its relatively strong base and rigid hinges. The design concept of the notebook is generally the same as the one of the ASUS ROG GL502, which features a brushed aluminim lid and plastic all around. The aluminum plate, which is also a huge fingerprint magnet, bends under pressure, but not enough to produce a ripple effect on the LCD screen. The Asus FX502VM has a specially-designed chiclet keyboard with red-backlit scissor-switch keys that offer 1.6 mm of travel distance for tactile keystrokes. It also features highlighted WASD keys so users know where their hands need to be. The keys feel clicky and stable and typing on this keyboard won’t take much time adjusting to it. For display, the Asus FX502VM gives superior images with lifelike colors thanks to 100% sRGB color gamut. It utilizes a 15-inch panel with a super-fast wide-view panel to give wide 178° viewing angles so there's no color shift even when it is viewed from extreme positions. It features Full HD (1920×1080) resolution leading to a 0.18 x 0.18 mm pixel pitch and 142 ppi. Under the hood, there are a seventh-generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 discrete graphics card with 3 GB of DDR5 VRAM and full Microsoft DirectX 12 support, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, which is upgradable to 24 GB, a 128 GB Solid State Disk and a 1 TB Hard Disk Drive with 5400 RPM. Hence, games achieve good frame rates when they are played with high details. The laptop’s Hyper Cool Duo-Copper cooling system uses heat pipes and a dual fan system to cool the CPU and GPU independently. This design maximizes cooling efficiency to give the Asus FX502VM the stability required at any need. Although the laptop is quite thin, it offers all the needed connectivity options. Despite being thin and light, this laptop packs a decent amount of ports. It even features a LAN port, something that is not so common anymore. The Asus FX502VM-AS73 is meant to be an entry level gaming laptop but its specs suggest that this machine is made to fight in the mid-range category. After all, the GTX 1060 graphics card is definitely no entry level graphics card. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

No-frills gaming. The FX502VM offers nearly everything that comes with the GL502VM without significantly impacting performance. The SKU with the lowest-end TN display, however, should be avoided due to its very poor contrast.
ASUS FX502 Gaming Laptop Quick Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS FX502 is a looker in terms of physique and form factor — it’s got a nice brushed metal look commonly seen on high-end gaming laptops and has great color accents. Its back-lit keyboard is also a plus for gaming even at night. Stereo speakers are effective and can be an alternative to wearing headphones.

ASUS FX502VM review – an outcast Republic of Gamers laptop
Source: Laptop Media English
All in all, the FX502VM is a powerful gaming notebook with impressive hardware for the asking price but as with every performance-centric laptop, you will have to make some serious sacrifices along the way. And this time, it’s not about build quality. In fact, the FX502VM is quite on par with the recently reviewed ASUS ROG GL502VS as they both share the same design concept and materials. Also, the FX502VM is surprisingly thin and relatively portable. Yes, sure we would have really appreciated a more premium selection of materials but let’s not get too picky.

The ASUS FX502 brings legit performance and gaming feature to a wider audience thanks to its more attractive price range. Smooth and high-detail 1080p performance are its hallmarks for gaming and its overall compact frame and build quality add to the mainstream appeal of this notebook and belies its decent gaming prowess.

Asus FX502VM Review (I5-6300HQ, GTX 1060 3GB)
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
The basic FX502VM is a nice machine for gaming for the price of $900-$950 (with discounts) in terms of performance/price ratio and in terms of thermal performance. The I5-6300HQ CPU is pretty good choice to go along with such a GPU for gaming. If you are after some heavy rendering, an I7 will probably be faster, but for gamers it’s not that important, plus it is considerably less hot. However it lacks some key features that might be important for some people. No Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1gen2, USB Type-C ports and also, only 1xM.2 SATA connection for M.2 storage (along 2.5″ bay). If these are dealbreakers for you. don’t get it. Secondly, the basic display is really rubbish – it might hurt your eyes if you’ll use it for too long too much. However, it is replaceable.

Searching for the Exceptional. We are taking the Asus FX553VD into our test regimen and evaluate if the FX553 lives up to Asus' motto "in search of incredible," or whether Asus has to continue to search. Compared to its sibling model which is equipped with a GTX 1060 at almost the same price, can the notebook collect enough positive arguments for a purchase?
60% Review: Asus FX553VD laptop
Source: PC Authority English
Asus has tried to deliver a rather unique machine; with a business form factor but the inclusion of a GeForce GTX 1050 to give it a little gaming grunt. However, for the price we think you’re better off with something like an Alienware with external GPU accelerator, which will deliver a much more portable office machine, with real gaming performance when you get home.

ASUS FX553VD (ROG Strix GL553VD) review – good value with a few hiccups
Source: Laptop Media English
Despite the lower price and the less powerful GTX 1050, our opinion of the notebook remains largely unaffected. The build quality feels somehow subpar or at least it doesn’t match the competition in most regards. The touchpad is also wobbly and unusable in some cases, although we suspect that the issues we had with it are limited to our unit. Still, the reviewed laptop is not a pre-production sample and we got it directly from the retailer, which means that there is bad quality control. In any case, we liked the keyboard quite a lot, which is more important for a gaming-oriented machine.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks.

The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1000 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).
