Reviews for the Asus Strix GL503VS-EI012T

80% Asus ROG Strix GL503 Scar Edition Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Asus ROG Strix GL503 Scar Edition is extremely expensive, and its value proposition all comes down to the 144Hz G-Sync screen. A lot of gamers swear by variable or at least high refresh rates and loudly proclaim that they could never go back to a normal 60Hz monitor. We aren't quite as militant, and maybe that has to do with the relatively low immersiveness you get with a 15.6-inch laptop screen, but it's still a luxury we could get used to. If you spend a lot of time in competitive esports, you'll get more mileage out of such a laptop. If you're used to it on your desktop and want the same experience on the go, you don't have many other options.

80% ASUS ROG Strix GL503 review - The Scar and Hero editions
Source: Hardware Zone English
All in all, the Scar Edition is a nicely balanced gaming notebook in its segment despite the issues mentioned above. But it does come at a premium at S$3,498. The alternative is the much more affordable Hero Edition (comparatively speaking) at S$2,698, and might be the better buy if you are an esports-type of gamer, where less hardware demanding games like CS:GO and DOTA 2 are what you live by and will live by for the next couple of years.

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.  
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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
