Asus ROG Zephryus S GX502, Zephyrus G GA502 and Zephyrus M GU502 defined

For the previous few years, the ROG Zephyrus has been Asus’s top-tier line of skinny and light-weight gaming laptops.

Whereas at first there was a single ROG Zephyrus collection, the GX501, in a while, Asus added the Zephyrus M (GM501), a barely bigger variant with a full-performance GPU, and the Zephyrus S (GX531), with the S coming from Slim, a thinner choice with Nvidia Max-Q graphics.

Fast ahead to mid-2019, Asus launched three new Zephyrus subseries: the up to date Zephyrus S GX502, the up to date Zephyrus M GU502, and the brand-new Zephyrus G GA502. At this level, the whole lot will get extremely complicated, that’s why on this article we’ll clarify the primary similarities and variations between these fashions, in addition to how they relate to the earlier Zephyrus S variants launched firstly of the yr (GX531 and GX701).

In a couple of phrases, all these are compact and light-weight ultraportable laptops with metallic builds, RGB keyboards, high-refresh fee screens, and highly effective specs. They’re additionally all commonplace clamshell laptops, not like a number of the earlier Zephyrus fashions, which used an inverted design with the keyboard downshifted in the direction of the underside of the chassis, in an effort to depart the highest for the and thermal implementation.

So what are the variations, then? We’ll get to that in a second, however first, right here’s a specs sheet of the three line ups, in addition to the early-2019 Zephyrus S GX531, which is able to shed mild over their particularities.

Asus ROG Zephryus S GX502

The GX502 is the higher-tier choice of the three, accessible with ninth gen Core i7 processors and both Nvidia RTX 2060 (90W) or 2070 (115W) graphics. Each are full-performance implementations of every Turing chip, and that’s somewhat surprising, given the truth that the GX502 is now a regular clamshell design, with a correct arm-rest and the tucked beneath the keyboard, so doesn’t profit from the thermally-favored design of the Zephyrus S GX531. I actually am trying ahead to seeing how that RTX 2070 115 W chip performs inside such a slim envelope, as that is usually one thing we’re used to seeing in thicker units, like within the beforehand reviewed ROG Scar, as an illustration.

The GX502 nonetheless will get a mechanical raiser on the underside, which lifts up the laptop computer and permits additional house to suck fresh-air from, and extra particulars on the thermal implementation can be found on Asus’s web site and within the clip under.
