Asus Zephyrus M GU502GU Laptop Review: $1800 for Single-Channel RAM

Medium performance for a high price. The Zephyrus M GU502GU starts at the same price as the Razer Blade 15 with the same CPU, GPU, and 144 Hz display. It becomes difficult to recommend the Asus when the Razer alternative is both smaller and more rigid while offering essentially the same level of gaming performance.

The Zephyrus family is home to Asus' thinnest and most visually appealing gaming laptops. The lineup itself has since expanded into multiple branches: the Zephyrus G series for budget-conscious consumers, the Zephyrus S series for the higher-end enthusiast offerings, and the Zephyrus M series as the in-between middle-ground solution. The model we'll be looking at today is the Zephyrus M GU502GU equipped with the Core i7-9750H CPU, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU, and 1080p 144 Hz IPS display retailing for about $1800 USD on Xotic PC.

A more powerful Zephyrus M GU502GV is also available with the RTX 2060 GPU instead, but everything else remains identical between the two SKUs.

Competitors to the GU502GU include other budget to mid-range 15.6-inch gaming laptops like the MSI GF65, MSI GL65, HP Pavilion 15 Gaming, Lenovo Legion Y740-15, Dell G7 15, and the more recent Razer Blade 15 GTX 1660 Ti.

Case - Minor Differences from the GA502

The chassis is nearly identical to the GA502 and GX502 in terms of dimensions, weight, and chassis material. Instead, the main differences between the GU502 and the GA502 or GX502 relate to ports, LED lighting features, small thickness changes, and the omission of Asus' "Active Aerodynamic System". The magnesium alloy chassis and brushed aluminum outer lid remain for stronger first impressions than on the weaker Lenovo Legion Y740 or MSI GF65. When compared to the Razer, however, the Asus chassis is more prone to flexing. Construction quality on our unit is excellent with no unintended gaps or crevices around edges or corners. 

Many of our comments on the GA502 chassis apply here for the GU502.

Connectivity - Most of the Basics

Port options and positioning are nearly identical to the AMD-powered Zephyrus G GA502. The GU502 has moved the USB Type-C port from the left edge to the right edge while integrating a second 3.5 mm microphone jack along the left. Both Thunderbolt 3 and an SD reader are still missing and the left edge can feel quite crowded since the ports are tightly packed.

Communication

Wireless has not changed and so users can expect the same Intel 9560 module as found on the GX502 or GX531. The cheaper GA502 uses a slower 1x1 module.

Maintenance

While servicing is relatively easy, it will require a lot of patience because of the sheer number of Philips screws involved (15). Expansions include two M.2 2280 slots and one SODIMM slot.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no accessories outside of the usual AC adapter and small manuals. A one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies with accidental damage protection if owners register their purchases with Asus.

Input Devices - Keys Could be Firmer

Keyboard and Touchpad

The GU502 shares the same keyboard and clickpad (10.5 x 7.5 cm) as on the GA502 and GX502. Thus, many of our existing comments on those laptops apply here on the GU502. We definitely think the input devices here feel more natural and easy to use than the unorthodox approach on the thinner GX531.

Per-key RGB lighting is available as opposed to the single-zone lighting on the cheaper GA502. Unfortunately, not every key symbol is lit as the small Function symbols (i.e., F1, F2, F3, etc.) are opaque. Additionally, the gray font colors printed on each key do not contrast very well against the black key caps and so it's recommended to have the lighting on for easier typing.

Display - Identical to the GX502

Asus has upped the bar for mid-range gaming laptops by dropping 60 Hz options in favor of 144 Hz and 240 Hz for the GU502 series. We're relieved to see that the GU502 uses the same AU Optronics panel as found on the pricier GX502GW instead of the horrendous 60 Hz panel on the cheaper GA502DU or FX505 series. Thus, our GU502GU test unit shares many of the same display characteristics as the GX502GW including the super-fast response times, relatively wide color space, decent contrast ratio, and average brightness values. We suspect that the 240 Hz display option uses the same or very similar panel as the one on the 240 Hz Razer Blade 15.

Both graininess and uneven backlight bleeding are minimal for an excellent impression representative of the high asking price.

Color space is approximately 59 percent and 91 percent of AdobeRGB and sRGB standards, respectively. High refresh rate panels for laptops have yet to match the same wide color spaces that certain IGZO or 4K UHD panels can provide.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
6.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.4 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.5 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9331 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility and viewing angles are essentially the same as what we observed on the Zephyrus S GX502GW since Asus uses the same panels for both these models. It's recommended to work under shade whenever possible as sunlight will overwhelm the screen and wash out colors.

Performance - 9th Gen Coffee Lake-H with Mid-range Turing

The Core i7-9750H CPU and GTX 1660 Ti GPU target upper mainstream gamers in contrast to cheaper laptops with the slower Core i5-9300H, Ryzen 7 3750H, or GTX 1050/1650. You'll be able to play any game at native 1080p with most settings turned to High. For triple-digit frame rates or higher resolutions, however, the Zephyrus S or ROG G series would be better options since they offer graphics options up to the RTX 2080.

Note that 16 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM is soldered with one SODIMM expansion slot only. Thus, RAM will run in single-channel mode unless if the SODIMM slot is occupied.

Nvidia Optimus comes standard to automatically exclude G-Sync SKUs.

LatencyMon shows no DPC latency issues even when wireless is enabled.

 

Processor - Maximum Turbo Boost Sustainability

We're already quite familiar with the Core i7-9750H since it's barely any better than the Core i7-8750H. However, we're surprised that the CPU in the GU502GU can sustain a higher level of Turbo Boost than most other laptops with the same or similar CPU. Our CineBench R15 Multi-Thread loop graph below shows stable scores throughout compared to the steeper drops that we observed on the MSI GF65 or Dell G7 17.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-9750H for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Storage Devices - M.2 Only

Two M.2 NVMe PCIe x4 slots are available with RAID 0 support. Our specific test unit comes with a 512 GB Intel SSD 660p SSDPEKNW512G8 which is the exact same drive as found on the Zephyrus S GX502GW and GX531GX. Still, different drives are possible depending on the region and reseller. Sequential read and write rates are good for a mid-range NVMe drive at approximately 1220 MB/s and 910 MB/s, respectively. Higher-end alternatives like the Samsung PM981 can offer sequential read rates approaching 2000 MB/s.

See our table of SSDs and HDDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance - Great for 1080p

3DMark results are where we expect them to be at just within 5 percent of the costlier RTX 2060 when not taking into account ray-tracing or DLSS features. Keep in mind that scores are slightly higher when running on Turbo mode compared to the regular Performance mode: 13381 points vs. 12714 points on Fire Strike.

Interestingly, Cloud Gate scores are much lower than expected at 30 percent below the average GTX 1660 Ti in our database. This means that the system may run slower than it's supposed to when aiming for high frame rates which our Gaming Performance section below can confirm.

Gaming Performance

For some strange reason, the GU502GU underperforms when running games at low resolutions as predicted by the low Cloud Gate score above. Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the lowest 720p settings, for example, returns an average frame rate of 88 FPS compared to 115 FPS on the Razer Blade 15 equipped with the exact same CPU and GPU. We suspect that the single-channel RAM of our test unit is at least partly responsible for the performance deficit.

Idling on Witcher 3 shows consistent frame rates throughout to suggest no noticeable throttling when gaming. However, frame rates dipped once to 18 FPS momentarily during the hour-long test possibly due to undesirable background activity.

See our dedicated page on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.
