Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 GU502L in review: Compact gaming notebook with Turbo reserves

2 kg gamer. The Zephyrus M15's main components bring all the latest computer games smoothly to the 15.6-inch matte screen (4k, IPS, Pantone certified). The rest of the interior is equally good: 2x NVMe-SSD (RAID 0), 16 GB RAM (dual channel), Thunderbolt 3.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Marvin Glöckner),

The Asus Zephyrus M15 GU502L is a slim, compact gaming laptop of the 15.6-inch format. The test device provided to us is powered by a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core. With the Zephyrus M GU502GU, we have already tested an identical sister model. Competitors include devices such as the Schenker Key 15, Razer Blade 15, Gigabyte Aero 15 XB, Acer Predator Triton 500 and the MSI GS66 10SGS.

Since the Zephyrus M15 and the Zephyrus M are identical in construction, we will not elaborate much on the case, connectivity, input devices and speakers. You can read about these in our review of the Asus Zephyrus M GU502GU.

Connectivity - now with Thunderbolt 3

The GU502L and GU502GU do not differ in terms of the type and arrangement of their connections - with one exception. While the latter offers a USB Type C 3.2 Gen 2 slot, the M15 comes with Thunderbolt 3.

Display - 4k IPS

The 15.6-inch matte screen features a native resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. Contrast (1,683:1) and brightness (376 cd/m²) are excellent. However, the response times of the 60 Hz panel could be better. Two optionally available FHD displays (144 Hz, 240 Hz) offer shorter response times.

* ... smaller is better

The X-Rite Pantone certification of the screen guarantees a very natural colour display. Even in factory condition, the display meets the target with a Delta E 2000 colour deviation of 1.8 (Delta E less than 3). It does not suffer from a blue cast. Calibrating the display provides further improvements. The colour deviation is reduced to 0.69 and grey scales are more balanced. The colour spaces AdobeRGB (99%) and sRGB (99%) are reproduced almost completely.

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↗ 11.6 ms rise
↘ 14 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 (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
60 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 29.2 ms rise
↘ 30.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 95 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.6 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 9596 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Asus equips the Zephyrus GU502L with a viewing angle stable IPS panel. The display can be read from any position. Outdoor use is certainly possible, given the sun doesn't shine too brightly.

Performance - Even more power thanks to Turbo profile

The Asus Zephyrus M15 GU502L represents a slim, compact 15.6-inch gaming notebook that brings every current game smoothly to the screen and also makes a good impression in all other application areas. Our test device is priced at around $3,000.

Testing conditions

The pre-installed Armoury Crate control center allows the choice of an energy profile. We have conducted our test with the "Performance" profile active. We have also run some benchmarks under the "Turbo" profile. For the battery tests we used the Windows energy schemes.

Processor

The Core i7-10750H six-core processor (Comet Lake) operates at a basic speed of 2.6 GHz. With Turbo Boost, the clock speed can be increased to 4.3 GHz on six cores and up to 5 GHz on a single core. Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

For a short time the CPU processes the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 4.2 GHz. Then the clock rate drops to 3.9 GHz - 4.2 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 4.2 GHz - 4.8 GHz. In battery operation, the speeds are reduced to 3.2 GHz - 3.6 GHz (multithread) and 3.6 GHz (single-thread).

Multithread (mains operation)
Multithread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)

We test whether the CPU Turbo is permanently used in mains operation by running the multithread test of Cinebench R15 in a loop for at least 30 minutes. The results decrease from the first to the fifth run and then remain at a fairly constant level. The CPU Turbo is working. Turbo clock rates increase slightly by choosing the Armoury Crate profile "Turbo".

DPC Latencies

In our standardised latency monitor test (web surfing, 4K video playback, Prime95 high load), we observed anomalies in the DPC latencies. The system does not appear to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing.

Storage Devices

Asus equips the GU502L with two 512 GB NVMe SSDs (M.2-2280) from Intel. These are configured in RAID 0, i.e. for the operating system, the two SSDs appear as one 1 TB SSD. All data stored on this array is distributed to both SSDs. This results in high transfer rates and short loading times. However, the SSDs used are not among the top models. The RAID array delivers lower transfer rates than a single top-of-the-line model from Samsung.

Two NVMe SSDs form a RAID 0 array.

GPU Performance

The dedicated GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core is an efficiency-trimmed version of the regular RTX 2070 designed for thin and light notebooks. Nvidia plans for this DirectX 12 GPU to have a speed level of 900 MHz (base) to 1,125 MHz (boost).

Higher speeds are feasible if the GPU does not reach a specified temperature and/or energy threshold. Thus we register a maximum of 2,009 MHz. The Witcher 3 is run at an average speed of 1,420 MHz or 1,676 MHz (Turbo). The GPU can use fast GDDR6 graphics memory (8,192 MB).

The results in the 3DMark benchmarks are at a normal level for the GPU. The "Turbo" performance scheme allows the graphics performance to increase significantly (see diagram). The UHD Graphics 630 GPU integrated in the processor is active and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus GPU switching technology.

Gaming Performance

The built-in hardware brings all games in our database smoothly to the screen. You can always choose Full HD resolution and high to maximum quality settings. Resolutions beyond Full HD require a reduction of the quality level - especially when using the native screen resolution (3840x2160 pixels). The Armoury Crate profile "Turbo" increases refresh rates (see diagram).

To check whether the frame rates remain largely constant over a longer period of time, we run the game The Witcher 3 for about 60 minutes at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings while not moving the game character. There is no noticeable drop in performance.
