74% ASUS ROG Zephyrus M (GM501) Review
Source: Think Digit English Archive.org version
The ASUS ROG GM501 Zephyrus M follows in the footsteps of the GX501. While the older model was definitely priced at a premium owing to its extreme slimness and hardware portfolio, the GM501 isn’t the same. With an aim to make the GX501 more affordable, ASUS did play around with the configuration and change a couple of things. However, a few things have changed over the year since the Zephyrus came out. By incorporating those changes, the GM501 hardly feels like a compromise. There’s competition from other brands in this segment and it’s hard to overlook ASUS’s decision to ship a single RAM module in the Zephyrus M. Most users will not notice the difference in performance, however, when you’re catering to the enthusiast gamer, these things do matter. When you compare the MSI GS65 with the GM501, it ends up being a bit more appealing because of the slightly lower price.

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus M GM501 Review: Six cores of pure gaming sizzle
Source: Toptenreviews English Archive.org version
Asus ROG Zephyrus M GM501 Review – Six-core Intel cpu? Check. Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics? Affirmative. IPS panel with 144Hz refresh and G-Sync support? Sir, yes, sir. On paper, Asus’s latest ROG gaming laptop, the Zephyrus M, has all the makings of a high-frame-rate portable powerhouse. But like any laptop, what matters is the detailed implementation. Much more than desktops, integration and engineering make all the difference if you’re going to squeeze the maximum out of any given component in a laptop.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M review: Leaner and meaner
Source: Good Gear Guide English Archive.org version
The ROG Zephyrus M’s recycled design isn’t as unique as its predecessor’s was at the time, but the gains in performance here leave it a formidable option for gamers nonetheless. It’s still one of the slimmest gaming laptops out there, not to mention one of the best-performing ones. There’s still room for improvement - but the Zephyrus M offers an upgrade where it counts most.

That pretty much does it for this quick look at the Asus Republic of Gamers Zephyrus M gaming notebook, otherwise known as the GM501. The notebook we got to tinker with a short amount of time has been priced at Php 149,995 though there is a configuration that comes with a GTX 1060 and a slight bump down in SSD storage for Php 119,995. You should be able to check out this sexy gaming notebook at select Asus and Republic of Gamers Concept Stores very soon. If you are in the market for a high-end mobile gaming machine, definitely check this one out.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M Review: A Laptop to sooth your gaming needs!
Source: The Mobile Indian English Archive.org version
Overall, the gaming laptop from Asus is equipped with some top-of-the-line features and hardware. The body is quite sturdy and the 144Hz refresh rate makes it a delightful experience to play games at high frame rates. You will not get disappointed with the performance of this gaming laptop, though might worry about the battery backup. That said, if you are looking for a serious gaming machine and there is no price constraint then this laptop can be considered as an option for you.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M GM501GS Gaming Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English Archive.org version
So £2000 is clearly quite a lot of money to spend on a laptop. Consider, however, what you are getting with the GM501GS. Not only are you getting Intel’s latest 8th-generation processor, but you’re also provided with a Nvidia 1070 graphics card. On top of all that as well you’re getting a fantastic hard drive system and what is perhaps the best-looking laptop currently available on the market. I really can’t stress enough just how fantastic this laptop is on every level. It’s just a slight disappointment that when unplugged, it does seem to gobble up the battery life really rapidly.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M (GM501) review: A slim powerhouse
Source: Hardware Zone English Archive.org version
The Zephyrus M may be faster than an equivalent Max-Q notebook, but I don't think it's fast enough to make up for its lack in mobility. It doesn't seem to have made up its mind as to what it wants to be. It's slim, but it's also quite large and heavy, so it's not really pushing its advantage in this area either. Furthermore, the 55Wh battery doesn't seem enough for the laptop, and battery life is pretty poor.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M Review - An almost perfect mix of beauty and functionality
Source: Tech Nave English Archive.org version
However, if you are keen on a slightly cheaper laptop, the Acer Helios 300 equipped with the Intel Core i7 chipset which is priced at RM5199 is definitely worth considering since it comes equipped with almost the same specs. But other than that, I could not find anything that is a concern to me. For more information regarding the ASUS Zephyrus M, check out their official website and for more reviews, tech news and updates like these, stay tuned to.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


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

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP106 chip as the normal GTX 1060 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Coffee Lake:

i7-8750H: 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++).
