74% ASUS ROG Zephyrus M (GM501) Review
Source: Think Digit English
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
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
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.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M GM501GS Quick Review: Still Sexy AF
Source: Unbox English
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.

Comment

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.  

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.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.51 kg:

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


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).


82.38%: 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.
