Asus seems to have quietly put up the FX503 multimedia and gaming notebook on its website. The FX503 is just a slight incremental update to the already good FX502 with RAM options up to 32 GB, choice of GPU VRAM, and an overall less thicker profile.

The Asus FX series of notebooks feature gamer-class components that guarantee a good gaming experience near to the US$1000 mark. We reviewed the FX502 notebook early this year and were impressed by the prowess it packs for the price (with a few caveats, of course). Apparently, Asus has quietly listed the next iteration, the FX503, on its website. Like its predecessors, the FX503 does not carry the Republic of Gamers (ROG) tag but has formidable processing prowess by sporting 7th generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs and a choice of either the NVDIA 1050 or 1060.

The FX503 sports the following specs —

Customers now have the option of loading the main memory up to 32 GB and can configure the GTX 1050 or GTX 1060 GPU with double the amount of VRAM. The FX503 seems to give the option of both TN and IPS panels and we suggest that buyers give the TN panel a miss as it has really bad viewing angles and contrast considering the price at which this would likely retail. The wide-angle display option, although sporting just a 45% NTSC color gamut, should be a better choice.

Although this is not a ROG notebook, the FX503 seems to take some design cues from the ROG family. The notebook features an overall slimmer profile and reduced weight compared to the FX502. Pricing, availability, and other details are not yet available at this time.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
