Reviews for the Asus NX500

70% Asus Zenbook NX500
Source: Digital Trends English
The Zenbook NX500 is a bold addition to the company’s lineup. It’s the most powerful and most expensive Zenbook ever produced. We thought the previous model’s $1,949 price was high, but the new entry’s $2,699 MSRP makes it look like a bargain. What you get in return for shelling out almost three grand is a device that pushes the limits of Windows notebooks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
4702HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
