Reviews for the Asus Strix GL502VS-FY042T
The ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VS is one beast of a gaming machine although it doesn’t come with a bigger 17-inch display and Ultra HD resolution. We totally enjoyed playing on its Full HD display and pair of high-quality stereo speakers. Other than for gaming, we also were able to utilize its capabilities in video editing as it was able to playback video smoothly even without rendering it first.

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 Mobile: 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.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
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.
