Reviews for the Asus Strix GL502VS-DB71

80% ASUS' ROG Strix GL502VS is a mid-range (and VR-ready) gaming laptop
Source: Engadget English
The Strix is an excellent mid-range gaming laptop. It may not have a premium build, and it suffers from middling battery life, but it has more than enough power to handle any game you might care to throw at it. Even in virtual reality.

70% Asus ROG Strix Review
Source: English
The Asus ROG Strix isn’t perfect, but it’s a pretty solid package for its relatively affordable $1,700 price tag. Armed with a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU and Intel Core i7 CPU, the Asus ROG Strix boasts top of the line performance, perfect for demanding games and VR. The 15.6-inch FHD IPS panel provides a beautiful smooth picture and is equipped with Nvidia G-SYNC technology. At only 0.9-inches thick and 5.8 pounds the ROG Strix isn’t exactly the most portable device, but it does comfortably fit into most carrying cases.

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Unboxing And Initial Review : Finally, A Gaming Notebook As Powerful As A Desktop
Source: Gear Open English
First off, Battlefield 1. Playing the beta on the highest resolution possible (full HD) with everything set to Ultra but with DX12 off, we were getting frames as high as 100. The game’s overall framerate never dipped past 57 frames. Similarly, Rise Of The Tomb Raider’s Very High Preset in the same resolution, DX12 off returned frames as high as 92, with the lowest frames coming in at 26 for an average of 57 FPS. Those are impressive numbers from a notebook, and we’ll be putting the GL502VS under stress in more games during the review process.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds. 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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
