RoG Zephyrus is a new series for those interested in a laptop for gaming and the Asus GX501VI-GZ021T is the 15.6 inch variant. Besides the nice design this laptop has an 120Hz screen, i7 quad core processor and GTX 1080 graphics. Also, for those interested in a model with a bigger screen there is the 17.3 inch model.
Such a laptop has a good price considering it has the newest hardware and that it has a good display. From the below picture and the clip at the end you can see that the design is not the same as of the previous ROGs. For example, the touchpad is on the right and can be transformed in a numeric keypad.
Asus GX501VI ROG Zephyrus is powered by the quad core i7-7700HQ processor which is the best Kaby Lake CPU available on the market.
For everything to run smooth this device has lots of RAM (16GB) and a big 512GB SSD. The GTX 1080 graphics card has also lots of RAM (8GB).
The display that comes with the laptop is a 15,6 inch one with 1080p resolution and a good refresh rate of 120Hz. Because of the IPS panel we get good viewing angles (178/178 degrees) and so we can say that the device is good for movies too. Also, about the display I like that’s matte (anti-glare,) so that the light does not reflect.
On the software side this model comes with Windows 10 and I think that this is good because it’s the newest OS from Microsoft and because most modern laptops don’t come with ODD (optical drive aka DVD).
For connecting the PC to the Internet we have wireless ac.
The portability is so so because the weight is about 2.2kg and batter life is decent (about 4-5 hours max).
The screen is a very clear one but the resolution could be better… 4K or something like it.
Asus GX501VI-GZ021T from the RoG Zephyrus 15 series is a laptop for those interested in a good workstation or desktop replacement.
