85% Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502 review (GU502GU model – i7-9750H, GTX 1660Ti)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Zephyrus M GU502 is an excellent multi-purpose laptop, and while expensive at the time of this review, it will increase in value in the months to come, as it gets discounted. Asus put together an excellently crafted and practical notebook, a good typer and a solid performer once tweaked, both with everyday use and with demanding loads and games, but there are still a few particularities and certain missing features that might steer those interested in a competent all-rounder towards something else, as you'll find from our in-depth review down below.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502 (i-9750H, GTX 1660 Ti/RTX 2060) – what to expect
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Availability and pricing details on the 2019 Zephyrus M update are still unknown at the time of the article, but I’d expect around $1800-$2000 as a starting price for the RTX models, based on the price of the existing RTX 2060 configurations of the Zephyrus S GX531, and a little lower for the GTX 1660 Ti variants.

70% Asus ROG Zephyrus M (GU502GV)
Source: PC Mag English
The trim, light Asus ROG Zephyrus M (GU502GV) is a solid-enough gaming laptop all around, but for the price and performance as tested in our RTX 2060 config, it's not the top value we've seen.

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).


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

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1660 Ti and therefore the Turing architecture without raytracing and Tensor cores. The performance of the Max-P variant should be similar to an older GTX 1070.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.» 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.  

9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
