Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus S GX531GX
The thinnest 15.6-inch laptop with RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics is a visual delight. For $2500, however, the Asus Zephyrus S GX531 could have at least included per-key RGB lighting and Thunderbolt 3.
ASUS appears to be clearly marketing this specific model of the Zephyrus S for the hardcore professional. As such, this is more likely to be in the hands of an IT professional than a gaming enthusiast. A factor that is represented in the somewhat vertical price tag. Such prices are, however, in the nature of performance laptops. You want a top-level portable performance? Expect it to cost you! Despite it all, however, if you are after a laptop for both work and play, it’s hard to come up with examples better than this that tick as many boxes.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 to achieve a much lower power consumption.
These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.
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.
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++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
