Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus S GX701GX

85.6% Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701GX (i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Asus released the 17-inch version of its high-end gaming laptop known as the GX531 shortly after Nvidia launched its Turing-based GPUs. Despite its slimness, the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is extremely capable and is supposed to strike fear into the hearts of the competitors. Read our review to find out if it succeeds at this.
75% Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 review: A great looking gaming laptop with excessive power and high price
Source: India Today English
Only if all the benefits I listed above matter to you. At Rs 3,49,990, the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 pinches the wallet hard. For almost the same price, you can build a custom gaming desktop PC with even more compelling hardware. Also, since you can only use the full potential of the Nvidia RTX 2080 in just a single game, for now, it is advisable to go for the ROG laptops with Nvidia GTX cards at much cheaper prices that can play the current crop of games with similar performance.

Asus ROG Zephyrus GX701 GX review (i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q, FHD 144 Hz screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is a 17-inch laptop mostly meant for desk use, hooked up to a mouse, and potential buyers will primarily benefit from its smaller size and lighter weight when carrying it around. It's nicely crafted, it types well, it gets a good-quality screen, punchy speakers and offers solid performance once tweaked, while on the other hand the impractical ergonomics when not on a desk and the potential short battery life might raise some concerns. We get in-depth on all these aspects in the review below.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is one of the best gaming laptops ever made, but the high level of performance and gorgeous thin and light design comes at a very high price, which makes it unaffordable for many people.

Asus fits a larger screen and the newest GPU on the block into the slim Zephyrus GX 701, but at the cost of battery life and ergonomics.

All in all though this is a great piece of tech. It’s expensive, yes, but so are the other thin-and-light 17-inchers with similar specs, so the form-factor remains the GX701’s important antagonizing factor, making this impractical while not on a spacious desk, but as the same time more comfortable than other devices while on a desk and hooked up to an external mouse.

2019 Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701 GX/GW and GX531 GX/GW gaming laptops
Source: Ultrabook Review English
All in all, I expect the 2019 Zephyrus GX701 to turn some heads and attract quite a few potential buyers if the final products actually deliver at the performance, thermals and noise levels. This is not going to be a cheap-laptop by any means, but ultraportable gaming laptops have never been cheap, and those with a 17-inch screen squeezed inside a compact shell are even harder to come by and there’s no wonder will demand a premium. In fact, there’s only the MSI GS75 Stealth Thin you could consider instead, for the time being. The 15-inch GX531 on the other hand pales in the more competitive niche of 15-inch ultraportables, and its multiple quirks and lacks compared to the 17-inch variant sure don’t help its cause.

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. » 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.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.636 kg:

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

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).


83.95%: 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.
