The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 is one of the slimmest, most versatile gaming laptops you can buy. With support for both G-Sync and Optimus, it's a high-power rig for play and a decent-battery one for productivity tasks.

Review: Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502
Source: Hexus English
Delivering all of the above in a sleek 15.6in chassis is enough for the GX502 to be a worthwhile competitor, but a few niggles prevent the laptop from moving to the front of the pack. Fan noise is a primary concern, battery life is disappointing, and the absence of a built-in webcam is a strange one.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 review – comes to shine in a world of Razer Blades and MSI GS65 Stealths
Source: Laptop Media English
So, would we recommend this laptop to you, guys? Well, the answer to that question is not the easiest. With that said, we would probably play the safe game and tell you to just go for something bulkier. However, it totally depends on what you intend to do on your laptop PC. From our gaming tests, we could say that you can surely play most of the latest AAA titles at around 45-70 fps on Ultra at 1920 x 1080p resolution. And this was with the RTX 2070 graphics card onboard. However, we had the feeling that this GPU was underperforming in this laptop.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502GW Laptop Review
Source: eTeknix English
ASUS appears to be clearly marketing this specific model of the Zephyrus S for the hardcore professional. It does, however, strike a very strong balance between the working professional and the gaming enthusiast. There is very little argument that this laptop doesn’t hold significant advantages in many areas of both work and play and frankly, would be ideal for someone who wants a reliable working companion who is capable of fun when you clock off for the day! Admittedly, I would’ve preferred to see some better temperature levels as noise is perhaps the only key detracting factor from this laptop. For general usage, however, this will never be an issue.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 is a portable powerhouse, boasting great gaming chops and incredible overall for non-gaming applications. In both style and performance, the GX502 straddles the gaming and productivity worlds nicely, while not necessarily excelling in either sphere. Gaming laptops with 20 Series graphics cards we’ve seen haven’t quite lived up to the hype so far, but the GX502 is the first one to deliver.

The Zephyrus S GX502GW is a major step-up from the early-2019 Zephyrus S GX531 lineup. It still offers plenty of performance in an even smaller, lighter and sturdier package, but this time it's a standard, practical form-factor, with a smarter choice in materials, more accessible internal design, proper battery life, and an improved keyboard, all in a more affordable package.

Asus’s new, back-to-basics design for its flagship gaming laptop is much appreciated, rising in power level without compromising much on thinness and weight. However, cutting the integrated webcam is sure to annoy many fans, us included. All told, the Zephyrus S GX501 takes the smartest innovations of the first model and hones them into a truly formidable mobile gaming PC.

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502GW-ES010T

Another top notch gaming laptop from Asus. The GX502 is actually a new series in Zephyrus S line. I cannot say that much has changed compared to other models, since keeping track of naming conventions between each series and different models is a hard task to always keep in mind and do successfully. But as a gamer, this is not what you are interested in. While checking this laptop, I kept asking myself: Who should use this laptop? It is lightweight for such good performance, just barely 2 kg. So, I could count it as mobile friendly for myself. As someone who likes to play games and also do some other processor-heavy stuff, it is the right fit for someone like me; besides one small detail. There is no webcam. Is it a big detail? It depends on your profile. If you just needs a laptop to play games and work on other personal stuff, sure. But if you are like me and would like to be able to do some web calls from time to time, that means you need to carry a portable cam with you most of the time. As I said, besides that there is not much to criticize about the laptop. Performance is at top levels. I must say, Asus does a good job in managing the laptop. There is an app for you to be able to tweak things here and there and find what suits best for you. The RTX 2070 GPU is something that Asus worked on and optimized for better performance which means it is not similar to other laptops with RTX 2070. On that end, it may be close to an RTX 2080 Max-Q model. I think in terms of decision making, the biggest point to keep in mind is your budget. As always, before purchasing something for gaming, the first question you should ask yourself is how mobile you are going to be. Because desktop options can always provide you more freedom in terms of specs and upgradability. For the GX502GW, I can definitely say there are models from competitors like MSI, Dell, and Acer all with if not the same but almost the same specs with different pricing. If your focus is on aesthetics, you should be ready to pay more. If you are only interested in performance and also want to have it cheap, well, you have to look somewhere else. The Zephyrus S GX502 is definitely a premium device and to be honest with you, it is worth its price. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

75% ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502GW review: You don't need Max-Q to make a slim laptop
Source: Hardware Zone English
If I'm paying S$3,998 for this laptop, I really shouldn't have to pony up extra to get it running properly. This may be a memory management issue that is no fault of ASUS, but the Zephyrus S is a premium laptop, and it should offer top-notch performance right out of the box. These memory shenanigans might have been somewhat acceptable on the mid-range models, but nobody expects this from a flagship model like the Zephyrus S. Having said that, I also feel like the Zephyrus S is too good a laptop in other aspects to pass on just because it has one memory stick. If you're comfortable with performing your own upgrades and want a portable speedster of a laptop for work and play, this is definitely still worth a look.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 boasts quite a few great features, and improved in a lot of ways, especially concerning its keyboard, battery life and speakers. It also sports a new 240Hz panel packed in the same sleek design. However, its dim screen and middling performance make it a hard sell at $2,199.

90% Asus ROG Zephyrus S15 review (2020 GX502LXS – Core i7, RTX 2080 Super)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 2020 Asus Zephyrus S15 GX502 refines on the 2019 Zephyrus, which was already a solid performance ultraportable. The updated hardware allows it to perform roughly 20-25% faster in multi-core CPU loads and 10% faster in games, with slightly improved noise levels and thermals, and Asus also implemented a 300 Hz screen with dual Optimus/GSyns modes and added Thunderbolt 3 support. At the same time, though, the top-tier 2020 Zephyrus S15 is a significantly more expensive product now, and still lacks the big battery and some of the features available with the competition.

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 RTX 2070 Mobile: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. The refresh version in April 2020 bears the same name, but is slightly higher clocked.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile: 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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 3,072 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified between 80 and 90 Watts with different clock speeds.

2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.064 kg:

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


84.01%: 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.
