Model: The Asus Strix GL504 is considered one of the fastest gaming laptops. At its core, the Asus Strix has been designed for FPS (First Person Shooting) gamers, but the promise of being able to play some of the most demanding titles on ultra settings with frame rates that hold up to the test. In the attempt to deliver on their promise, Asus has loaded up the laptop with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 core processor, 16 GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 graphics card with 8 GB of DDR6 RAM. The laptop features a 15.6-inch IPS display with Full-HD resolution (1080p) and high 144 Hertz refresh rate display. The bezel surrounding the screen is almost unnoticeable on the top and sides, when compared to its predecessor, the ROG Strix SCAR, Asus has made a massive improvement. At the bottom of the screen, the Strix GL504 has a reflective Republic of Gamers logo and a 720p webcam on the lower right-hand side. For consumers to meet their gaming and potential streaming needs, there's no shortage of ports either. On the left-hand side, consumers will be able to find space for their power cable, as well as Ethernet port, a DisplayPort, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5  mm audio jack, and USB-C. And on the right-hand side, the Asus Strix GL504 has an SD card reader, a USB 3.0 port and a Kensington lock slot. Looking at the design, the fully contrasted brushed gunmetal gray hood has a RGB logo in the front, and in addition, the laptop has a front-facing RGB light panel. At the base of the laptop, the most noticeable feature is the four-zone backlit RGB keyboard. Now, surrounding the keyboard is a carbon-fiber star look, where half the base is diagonally spread with the greyscale inspired camouflage design. In addition to the camouflage carbon-fiber design, the laptop has a smudge proof surface.

The transparent WASD keys are exclusive to the SCAR models, which cater to FPS gamers. The buttons on the keyboard have a tactile and punchy feel to it, with 1.8 mm key travel. This translates to usage that feels responsive and intuitive. Also, consumers can find additional numpad and as well as navigation keys further on the right-hand side of the keyboard. Now, there are four quick select keys at the top of the keyboard, two volume control buttons, a mute microphone button and the ROG Gaming Center hotkey. Under the base of the keyboard, the Asus Strix Gl504 has the trackpad, which comes in at a fairly large size. It is Microsoft precision certified, meaning that the trackpad responses to gestures like two fingers scrolling and three fingers tab switching. The RoG Gaming Center provides all of the required system information, including CPU, GPU, RAM, and HDD usage. Consumers are also able to check on their respective temperature and memory of both the CPU and GPU at a glance. With ROG Oracle, consumers are able to toy with the color schematics and see them change instantly. There are over seven effect presets to select from and three tempo paces (slow, medium, and fast) for the keyboard illumination and the LEDs on the front and top of the laptop. As for the speakers, consumers are able to adjust extensively by the sonic studio and sonic radar. The Asus Strix Gl504 Intel 802 AC multi-antenna Gigabit Wi-FI allows consumers to connect at an impressive range. The WIFI delivers speeds of up to 1.7 gigabits per second. However, the battery life for the laptop can be rather short, with up to about 3 hours unplugged, while on minimal settings. The Asus Strix GL504 is suitable for gaming, working and streaming. The Core i7 processor combined with the GTX 2070 GPU delivers a powerful performance, which spreads across into every task that consumers try to push the laptop to undertake.

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.

» 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.  

8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 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.
