Reviews for the Asus GL702ZC-GC104T

82.6% Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC (Ryzen 7 1700, Radeon RX 580) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Sensation. While AMD's Ryzen architecture has already been available in the desktop range for several months, the notebook range had to wait patiently for a long time. The waiting is over now: Asus is the first manufacturer who provided us with a gaming laptop with 8-core CPU and Radeon RX 580. Our review will reveal whether the bundle is able to challenge a combination of Intel and Nvidia hardware.

The Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC’s desktop processor may deliver great multi-threaded performance, but this power- hungry CPU, as well as the desktop Radeon RX 580 GPU, also contribute excessive heat and noise.

An ideal laptop for those who want to work on the same platform as they play; but does a gaming machine need a CPU this powerful?

ASUS Strix GL702Z Ryzen Laptop Review
Source: Overclock3d English
Such has been the dominance of Intel over a couple of generations now that the majority of gaming laptops that come through the OC3D offices run a combination of an Intel laptop-spec quad core and then an nVidia GPU that fits whichever price point the laptop arrives at.

70% Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Strix GL702ZC indeed presents a high value proposition if you’re after the most overall performance for your money. Its AMD Ryzen 7 1700 eight-core chip makes it a beast of a machine for grunt work like encoding and rendering. It did just fine in our gaming benchmarks, too; the Radeon RX 580 inside this unit was on par with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 in competing laptops.

ASUS ROG GL702Z Ryzen Gaming Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English
All this laptop had to do is compete with similarly priced Intel offerings, and it certainly did. It beats Intel in the multi-tasking and rendering, and it’s almost as fast when it comes to gaming. Throw in a few bonus features like an LED lit keyboard, punch speakers, impressive cooling, robust connectivity, and FreeSync, and you’ve got a great value for money bundle. It’s not as light and mobile as some may desire, but few 17.3-inch display laptops are, if any!

ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC (AMD Ryzen 7 1700, Radeon RX 580) review – a really good workstation with ROG’s branding on top?
Source: Laptop Media English
If you came to read this review looking for a confirmation of why you should buy the GL702ZC for gaming, you are going to be disappointed. From all the data that we’ve gathered, it seems like the ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC is more of a workstation than a gaming laptop for two main reasons.

75% ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC review: Better for content creators than gamers
Source: Hardware Zone English
The ROG Strix GL702ZC is a pretty well-built laptop. The speakers are excellent, and the display doesn’t annoy you with poor viewing angles or washed out colors. The keyboard also feels good to type on, so the overall user experience is quite positive.

ROG Strix GL702ZC is far from perfect, yet it echoes AMD Ryzen's penchant for disruption. Where else can you get an eight-core, 16-thread laptop for under £1,500?

97% ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC 8-Core Gaming Laptop In-Depth Review (Ryzen 7 1700 + RX580)
Source: B2G English
Again, ASUS has deveoped a purpose-built notebook that completely closes the gap between desktop and laptop. Normally when we say desktop replacement, we normally refer to the gaming performance of a system but in this case its a complete top-down solution bringing true desktop class performance on the go thanks to its 8-core Ryzen CPU. While it may identify as a gaming product, the ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC 8-core gaming laptop is a professional workstation thoroughbred capable of delivering so much more.

Comment

AMD Radeon RX 580 (Laptop): Polaris 20 based high-end graphics card for laptops, manufactured in an improved 14nm process (LPP+). Should be similar to the desktop Radeon RX 580 and perform similar to a RX 480. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
1700: Desktop 8-core CPU based on the Zen architecture. Clocks with 3 to 3.75 GHz (XFR) and offers SMT (16 threads). Fastest Ryzen CPU at launch in early 2017. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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).


78.84%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
