84.7% Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Let the games begin. Asus sent us one of the first 15-inch notebooks with the extremely fast Pascal GPU GeForce GTX 1070. The informed reader expects big performance gains and is not disappointed. The manufacturer focuses on continuity for the other aspects of the system, which is usually the correct decision.
80% Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Gaming Laptop Review- Big, Bold, Amazingly Fast
Source: Tech Magnifier English
All those who want a portable gaming beast with best set of specifications crammed in a rugged design, ASUS ROG Strix 502VS is the machine you’re looking for. Although everything is packed neatly inside the laptop, there are a couple of factors to take into consideration before making the final choice. The machine is undoubtedly a beast, it has the best package of specifications any top class gaming laptop wish to offer, the hyper cool duo system is one of the best of all times, but it’s noisy during gameplay, battery life may disappoint you and the design isn’t very creative. So, if the mentioned points don’t bother you too much and it’s the performance that ultimately matter to you the most, go for Asus ROG Strix 502VS.

Another very good gaming laptop, for gamers. It does not come with optical drive, you will either need to install games from external source or download from the net. All these gaming laptops do come for a price.

The ASUS ROG Strix GL502VS Review: Mainstream GTX 1070 with G-SYNC
Source: AnandTech English
ASUS has built a powerful gaming system, with all the latest technology inside. The Core i7-6700HQ is well known, and very capable. There will likely be a Kaby Lake update for quad-core processors soon, and we’ll see how they compare, but for now this is a capable CPU for a portable computer. The NVIDIA GTX 1070 is a very large step up from the GTX 970M, with performance that is right in-line with two GTX 980M cards in SLI. We’ve been waiting for FinFET for years on the GPU side, and it has paid off. In addition, it has up to 8 GB of GDDR5, and if you are interested in this notebook be very sure you are getting the 8 GB model since games like Rise of the Tomb Raider already use more the 4 GB on maximum settings.

ASUS ROG Strix GL502 gaming notebook preview: Orange is the new black
Source: Hardware Zone English
We’d argue that NVIDIA’s new mobile Pascal GPUs add a ton of value to any purchase of a gaming laptop. Before, we were always disinclined to recommend gaming laptops to serious gamers looking for the best bang for their buck, because a desktop would always be far faster and cost less. But now that the Pascal cards are offering performance on a similar level as previous generation flagship desktop cards – or even rivaling their desktop equivalents – buying a gaming laptop like the ROG Strix GL502 has never looked as enticing as now.

ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VS Review
Source: Yugatech English
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.

Finally, A Gaming Notebook As Powerful As A Desktop
Source: Unbox 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.

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.

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 (GTX 1070) review – the low-end high-ender
Source: Laptop Media English
The ASUS ROG GL502VS should have been a more affordable 15-inch solution but instead, it rivals the 15-inch Acer Predator 15 (G9-593) and fails to match its features and performance. Yes, sure the Predator 15 costs $100-150 more but these pennies are definitely worth it. Not only does the Predator 15 stands out with a more sturdy and pleasant build but also offers more storage configurations and always ships with an NMVe-enabled SSD. We also liked the keyboard and touchpad way more.

Source: PC Authority English
Asus has built a very solid machine around an incredible new GPU. We would have liked a slightly better screen, but then the price would have been even higher. Regardless, this laptop has totally revolutionised the performance we can expect from a laptop, putting many regular desktops to shame.

Comment

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. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

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.» 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.7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.

2.24 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.6 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


81.19%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
