Comment

Model: Another top notch gaming laptop from Asus. The GX502 is actually a new series in Zephyrus S line. I cannot say that much has changed compared to other models, since keeping track of naming conventions between each series and different models is a hard task to always keep in mind and do successfully.

But as a gamer, this is not what you are interested in. While checking this laptop, I kept asking myself: Who should use this laptop? It is lightweight for such good performance, just barely 2 kg. So, I could count it as mobile friendly for myself. As someone who likes to play games and also do some other processor-heavy stuff, it is the right fit for someone like me; besides one small detail. There is no webcam. Is it a big detail? It depends on your profile. If you just needs a laptop to play games and work on other personal stuff, sure. But if you are like me and would like to be able to do some web calls from time to time, that means you need to carry a portable cam with you most of the time.

As I said, besides that there is not much to criticize about the laptop. Performance is at top levels. I must say, Asus does a good job in managing the laptop. There is an app for you to be able to tweak things here and there and find what suits best for you. The RTX 2070 GPU is something that Asus worked on and optimized for better performance which means it is not similar to other laptops with RTX 2070. On that end, it may be close to an RTX 2080 Max-Q model.

I think in terms of decision making, the biggest point to keep in mind is your budget. As always, before purchasing something for gaming, the first question you should ask yourself is how mobile you are going to be. Because desktop options can always provide you more freedom in terms of specs and upgradability. For the GX502GW, I can definitely say there are models from competitors like MSI, Dell, and Acer all with if not the same but almost the same specs with different pricing. If your focus is on aesthetics, you should be ready to pay more. If you are only interested in performance and also want to have it cheap, well, you have to look somewhere else. The Zephyrus S GX502 is definitely a premium device and to be honest with you, it is worth its price.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. 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.
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.  
9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.
