Asus has introduced a new member to the Zephyrus family with the Zephyrus G GA502. The GA5002 aims to bring the Zephyrus series to a wider audience and is powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 3550H CPU and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU to offer a high-performant combination for multitasking and gaming while still being easier on the battery life.

The Asus Zephyrus G GA502 is a new entrant into the Zephyrus family with the aim of introducing ultra-slim gaming to a wider audience. The GA502 is powered by the 4C/8T AMD Ryzen 7 3750H APU and is complemented by the just announced GeForce 1660 Ti GPU. Such a combination should allow for efficient multitasking as well as enhanced battery life.

The GA502's 15.6-inch FHD display sports slim bezels and comes in both 60 Hz and 120 Hz options. The chassis is well-built and weighs just 2.1 kg. The overall design with a brushed metal finish on the lid and diamond-cut chamfers caters to both gamers as well as pro users.

Asus brings forth some of the cooling improvements we've seen in other ROG launches today to the GA502 including multiple heat pipes, self-cleaning mechanism, and thin-blade yet high density fans. The GTX 1660 Ti can boost up to 1335 MHz at 60 W when the Turbo mode is enabled. The extra speed boost should help in better utilization of the 120 Hz display for smoother gameplay.

The Zephyrus G GA502 is Hi-Res audio certified and can output high quality 7.1-channel virtual surround. Connectivity options include 3x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A and 1x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C with charging and DisplayPort 1.4-out capabilities. There is no Thunderbolt 3 port and the wireless AC speeds are limited to 1x1 speeds.

The Asus Zephyrus G GA502 is available from today worldwide. Pricing and configurations vary by region.

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.
