83.8% Asus ROG GL503VD-DB74 (7700HQ, GTX 1050) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Another year, another refresh. The new Asus GL503VD represents a slight aesthetic redesign of Asus' highly-revered ROG line. Some will appreciate the simpler, less "gamery" redesign, but not much else has changed. The GTX 1050 still makes for a decent (if noisy) entry-level gaming experience.

The Asus Rog Strix G503 fails to set itself apart from the crowd of entry-level gaming laptops in any meaningful way, from price to power, despite strong battery life and a beautiful screen.

But if looks are important to you and you want the best screen in the price range, sticking to the Strix's GTX 1050 GPU isn't a bad choice. Just use a mouse instead of that unpleasant touchpad, and think about upgrading the storage drive.

Asus Strix GL503VM-DB74 Hero Edition

The Asus Strix GL503VM-DB74 Hero Edition has been designed for MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) gamers. The mid-range gaming laptop comes with a Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card and a 120 Hz display. Will MOBA gamers be happy with performance, features, and price?

Design and Connectivity

While other Republic of Gamers (ROG) laptops features red and copper accents, the Asus Strix GL503VM-DB74 Hero Edition uses black and white colors and has so-called “Maya” pattern on the lid and the keyboard side. Matthew Buzzi from uk.pcmag.com finds the design is restrained compared with some other gaming laptops, but he still finds it somewhat tacky. According to uk.pcmag.com the plastics chassis feels solid. The laptop weighs at 2.54 kg (5.6 lb) and measures at 38.35 x 26.16 x 2.29 cm (15.1 x 10.3 x 0.9 inch). uk.pcmag.com says that it is not especially portable and recommends to take a look at more expensive Max-Q designs like the Origin PC EVO15-S and Asus' own ROG Zephyrus if you want a truly thin and light gaming laptop. Networking is possible via Ethernet, 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 4.2. Connectivity includes one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a mini DisplayPort, an HDMI port, a RJ-45 Ethernet jack, a 2-in-1 card reader, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a 3.5 mm combo jack.

Input Devices

The Asus Aura RGB gaming keyboard features a key travel of 1.8 mm. N-key rollover ensures fast, precise response. Asus specifies that the keycaps are curved 0.25 mm deep. uk.pcmag.com thinks that the typing experience is comfortable and satisfying, and the key travel feels good for gaming. Lori Grunin from www.cnet.com likes the keyboard a lot, both for playing and typing. She found it very comfortable and responsive, with no rollover issues, but complains that she could not find a NumLock indicator. www.firstpost.com summarizes, “The keys have good travel, respond uniformly and accurately to taps and there was no wobble to the keys.” www.hardwarezone.com.sg evaluates the keyboard is very decent with some appreciable tactile feedback and travel. www.gadgetsnow.com finds the RGB keyboard is laid out well and feels great to touch. The keyboard light can be customized in four zones. The Hero Edition uses a Clickpad with integrated buttons. www.firstpost.com finds the trackpad is good and tracks precisely. www.gadgetsnow.com thinks the trackpad is easy to use and pretty standard one that comes with most gaming laptops at this price.

Display

The Asus Strix GL503VM-DB74 Hero Edition features a 15.6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:9, FHD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It uses the IPS technology. The anti-glare panel covers 94 % of sRGB, but the display is cool the entire gamut is shifted according to www.cnet.com. In contrast, www.firstpost.com reports an sRGB rating of only about 86 percent. They measured a maximum brightness of 250 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 825:1 after calibration. Thanks to the higher refresh rate games look and feel smoother. www.gadgetsnow.com writes that the response time is 3 ms and the viewing angles are excellent especially in first person shooter games.

Hardware and Performance

This model comes with a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 16 GB of RAM, while newer ROG Strix Hero Edition family laptops already feature 8th Intel Core i processors (i7 8750HQ or i5 8300HQ) according to Asus' website. uk.pcmag.com got a PCMark 8 Work Conventional test result of 3420, which is about on par with their results for the MSI GP62X Leopard Pro and the Lenovo Legion Y520. www.firstpost.com reports that the CPU performance is about 10-15 percent lower than what they’ve seen on similarly specced machines. www.hardwarezone.com.sg got a PCMark 10 Extended (Overall) score of 5300 and a Productivity Score of 6528. The Nvidia GTX 1060 has been designed for 1080p gaming. uk.pcmag.com says that most titles should run smoothly, but you might have to reduce details in more demanding games to to maintain 60 frames per second (fps). They report the following results: 5144 in 3Mark Fire Strike Extreme, 68 fps in Heaven (1080p, ultra, AA 4X), and 73 fps in Valley (1080p, ultra, AA 4X). Rise of the Tomb Raider ran at a 57.5 fps average at the “Very High” preset in www.firstpost.com’s tests. This is comparable to Notebookcheck’s results for the GTX 1060 (min: 51, avg: 61, max: 68.8). The 256 GB boot SSD ensures short boot times and swift program starts. A 1 TB hybrid drive expands the storage capacity. www.hardwarezone.com.sg calls the 1TB 5400rpm secondary hybrid drive agonizingly slow.

Battery Life

uk.pcmag.com reports a battery life of 3 hours and 1 minute in their rundown test. www.hardwarezone.com.sg measured the battery life with PCMark 8’s Home benchmark. They had the keyboard backlighting disabled and display set at 50 percent brightness and conclude that the battery performance is disappointing. Moreover, they report that G-Sync is automatically disabled when the laptop is running on battery. www.gadgetsnow.com confirms that the battery can easily last for three hours of normal use without being plugged in, but they find that this is surprisingly good.

Temperature and System Noise

www.firstpost.com says that load (CPU) temperatures easily touched 91 degrees Celsius and conclude that the lower CPU performance they've observed (see above) could be caused by thermal throttling. They report that the fans get loud during gaming, but heat was directed away from the keyboard and palm rest, making extended gaming sessions very comfortable. www.hardwarezone.com.sg finds that the fans never get excessively loud when running the laptop at full load, although it’s certainly noticeable. www.hardwarezone.com.sg assumes that the thermal efficiency controls and air cooling are working as claimed. They measured GPU and CPU temperatures of 84 and 83 degrees Celsius, respectively after looping the 3DMark Fire Strike stress test for 15 minutes. www.gadgetsnow.com did not face any heating issues even after spending a lot of hours playing quite a few games at a stretch.

Sound

www.firstpost.com finds that the sound has some body to it and doesn’t seem tinny, yet it is not loud enough to make movie watching fun. www.gadgetsnow.com finds the audio quality on the Hero is not really the best and while it is undoubtedly a loud laptop, there is a sense of something missing with the audio of the Hero.

Summary

The 1080p resolution of the 120 Hz panel goes well with the graphics performance of the GTX 1060. The high refresh rate makes games appear smoother. The keyboard is decent. Unfortunately, this model still uses a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor. www.hardwarezone.com.sg calls the battery life disappointing and www.hardwarezone.com.sg finds that the secondary hybrid drive is slow. The ASUS GL503VM stands out for its excellent build quality and design for www.firstpost.com. uk.pcmag.com summarizes, “The Strix Hero Edition is a solid midrange gaming laptop”.  Alternatives include the MSI GP63 Leopard 8RE (i7-8750H, GTX 1060, FHD) Xotic PC Edition, the Dell G5 15 5587 (i5-8300H, GTX 1060 Max-Q, SSD, IPS), and the Schenker XMG Apex 15 (Clevo N950TP6). As of 07-16-2018 amazon.com lists the GL503VM-DB74 for $1,442.97 and the GL503VD-UH73 (smaller 128 GB SSD) for $1,185.40. In Europe amazon.de offers the ASUS ROG STRIX Hero Edition GL503VM-GZ081 (90NB0GI4-M03540) with Intel Core i5-7300HQ and 8 GB of DDR 4 RAM (vs. Core i7-7700HQ and 16 GB in the Strix GL503VM-DB74 Hero Edition) for EUR 1.122,30 at the time of writing. In view of the competitition, the prices appear to be quite fair.

For a more full-fledged gaming experience, do consider the MSI GE73VR 7RF Raider. It’s a larger, more expensive, more powerful laptop that costs Rs 30,000 more than the Hero, but it’s also a true desktop replacement. If the size turns you off, the Hero is too good to pass up on.

The alternative is the much more affordable Hero Edition (comparatively speaking) at S$2,698, and might be the better buy if you are an esports-type of gamer, where less hardware demanding games like CS:GO and DOTA 2 are what you live by and will live by for the next couple of years.

The ROG Strix Hero Edition starts at a price point of Rs 92,990 and it is a competitive category with rivals like Dell, HP and MSI all having decent offerings. So, Asus does have a battle on its hands. However, with the Hero Edition it does have a capable challenger to take on the competition. It has a beautiful display, delivers solid performance and has an impressive battery life. Asus is trying to widen its customer base with its latest offering and the Strix Hero edition will certainly help it in doing so.

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR Edition (GL503VS) review – immersive gaming with 144 Hz display and GTX 1070 on the go
Source: Laptop Media English
With all being said, it’s really hard to recommend any other 15-inch GTX 1070-powered laptop. For just about the same price, you can get the Alienware 15 R3 and the Predator 15 (G9-593) but we doubt that you will get the same set of features and advantages as the ROG GL503VS offers. And if you are wondering whether or not the extra cash is worth over the previous generation GL502VS, our answer is yes. Definitely!

Source: Toptenreviews English
Those components heavily tax the battery, though, with the Scar lasting less than 2 hours when playing movies and only 1 hour and 22 minutes in PCMark 8’s Home benchmark. The system is also set to use passive cooling when on battery power (which curbs performance rather than engaging fans), so this isn’t a system you’ll be able to game on without being attached to power. That said, if you are OK with a very portable 2.5kg gaming rig and 144Hz screen combo, then this powerful device is one of the best gaming laptops we’ve tested under

80% Asus ROG Strix GL503 Scar Edition Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Asus ROG Strix GL503 Scar Edition is extremely expensive, and its value proposition all comes down to the 144Hz G-Sync screen. A lot of gamers swear by variable or at least high refresh rates and loudly proclaim that they could never go back to a normal 60Hz monitor. We aren't quite as militant, and maybe that has to do with the relatively low immersiveness you get with a 15.6-inch laptop screen, but it's still a luxury we could get used to. If you spend a lot of time in competitive esports, you'll get more mileage out of such a laptop. If you're used to it on your desktop and want the same experience on the go, you don't have many other options.

The ROG Strix GL503 is a pretty decent entry to ASUS’ gaming series, but the lower than expected GPU severely limits your options when it comes to playing games.

The ASUS ROG Strix GL503 is a sleek, gamer-centric laptop that will suit the needs of most. As of the present, it’s capable of getting respectable frame rates in graphically demanding AAA games, at medium to high settings. A few years down the line though? Your investment may start to struggle given the fact that game requirements increase every year, and this laptop only packs a GTX 1050.

ASUS ROG STRIX HERO EDITION GL503VM Gaming Notebook Review
Source: eTeknix English
The storage performance is pretty decent, fast enough to get you into your bigger games in a reasonable time, but not so fast you can’t read the loading screen tips, ha! The USB performance was under what we hoped for though, but it does seem to be a solvable driver issue and something we expect to be an easy fix with a patch. The inclusion of some punchy speakers, the LED lit keyboard, and comprehensive connectivity all sweeten the deal though. Overall, the Hero isn’t cheap, but it’s very competitive in terms of features and a good return on your investment.

This Asus laptop has power and style, but is it worth the money?
Source: Reviewed.com English
Battery life is disappointing, so you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for an outlet or take the power brick with you. In addition to poor battery life, the cooling system is super loud under demanding loads. The noise doesn't bother me much, but it could be distracting in a classroom environment. The starting price is also pretty steep. Nitpicks aside, if you've got the money for it, the Scar is a nicely balanced laptop for the right buyer.

70% Asus GL503 Strix Edition review: A robust and reliable gaming laptop
Source: Gadget Show English
The GL503 Scar Edition is a laptop that will attract a lot of gamers despite its price. The laptop starts at Rs 1,54,990 but has a lot going for it. It's a powerful laptop with an impressive display. Although the sound output could've been better but overall this is a very good gaming laptop. Add to it the fact that it's compact and easy to carry around works in its favour. A solid performer that looks good as well. Not much more you can ask for in a gaming laptop, can you? There is intense competition in the gaming laptops now and those looking for alternatives can look at the HP Omen series or Asus's Hero Edition.

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).
