Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus GX501VI-XS74

80% Asus ROG GX501 Zephyrus review – thin-and-light laptop with Max-Q GTX 1080 graphics
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Asus Zephyrus is unique at the time of this post, as the only thin and light 15-inch laptop with a GTX 1080 in it. It has some flaws, most of them inherent to a computer with this kind of form-factor and some caused by the choices Asus made, but overall this gets a good grade because I think it has good value, decent build quality and some pretty good features. Not only does it have a lot of horsepower, it also works well in all sorts of loads and carries a nice 120Hz IPS screen with GSync. I think those factors alone make up for the shortcomings, but read on for the whole story below.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card with 8 GB GDDR5X-VRAM based on the Pascal GP104 chip. Equipped with 2560 shader units and offers about 10-15% lower performance than a regular GTX 1080 due to lower clocks, but the power consumption is much lower in return.

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

2.3 kg:

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


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).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
