Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 GU502L in review: Compact gaming notebook with Turbo reserves
The Zephyrus M15's main components bring all the latest computer games smoothly to the 15.6" matte screen (4k, IPS, Pantone certified). Equally nice, the rest of the interior: 2x NVMe-SSD (RAID 0), 16 GB RAM (Dual Channel), Thunderbolt 3.

The Asus Zephyrus M15 GU502L is one of the slim, compact gaming notebooks of the 15.6-inch format. It weighs only about 2 kg. The test device provided to us is powered by a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics core. Together they bring any current computer game smoothly to the 4k screen. FullHD resolution and high to maximum quality settings can always be selected. Resolutions beyond FullHD though might require a reduction in quality level.

The hardware is supported by 16 GB of RAM (dual channel mode), divided between an 8 GB module and 8 GB of soldered memory. The system drive is a RAID 0 array consisting of two NVMe SSDs. The array provides 1TB of storage space and offers high transfer speeds, but not the fastest, due to the Intel SSDs in the system not being among the top models.

The IPS 4k screen scores with a matt surface, high brightness, good contrast, stable viewing angles and - thanks to Pantone certification - great colour reproduction. The colour space coverage is also impressive. The laptop doesn't set any endurance records, but the battery life is good for a gaming notebook.

I had a happy childhood full of LAN parties, Peltier cooling, 3dfx accelerator cards, dual CPU motherboards and thermal paste everywhere; followed by a happy youth with more LAN parties, building gaming rigs in acoustic guitars, pizza boxes and trumpet cases. As an adult I am more interested in the tidier, compact gaming world of laptops.
