c0_Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501

World’s Slimmest Gaming Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

ROG Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming laptop that empowers hardcore gamers to dominate any battle. March to victory with the ROG Zephyrus armed with an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design, and a 144Hz IPS panel with an ultra-fast 3ms response time. All the hardware delivers gaming performance comparable to high-end gaming desktop, in a travel-friendly package thinner than all previous ROG laptops. An RGB backlit keyboard featuring anti-ghosting lets you fully unleash your gaming prowess. Comprehensive connectivity options include HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1 Gen2 10 Gbps, and Thunderbolt. Moreover, the sophisticated cooling solution delivers powerful, acoustics-optimized cooling, so you can game at your best without worrying about throttling.

Slim and Sleek

ROG Zephyrus takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with Max-Q design—an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. An innovative hinge and fan module help keep the high-end GPU cool, resulting in a gaming laptop that’s portable enough to carry with you anywhere yet potent enough to compete with powerful gaming desktops.

1_Slim and Sleek

Play It Cool

ROG Zephyrus is armed with an exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that breaks all the rules. AAS combines intelligent design with innovative technologies to give gamers what they want: an ultra-slim laptop that runs cooler and quieter without sacrificing performance. When the laptop is opened, a portion of the bottom flexes to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with our unique AeroAccelerator technology, this gap improves airflow by 32% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling. You can game for hours on end with impeccable stability and no throttling. ROG Zephyrus offers the highest level of performance in the smallest chassis.

2_Play It Cool

Breathe Deeply

ROG-exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) includes several enhancements to make the cooler more effective, improving internal airflow and allowing the fan to spin slower and quieter while maintaining low temperatures. The exclusive trapezoid-cut lets air flow freely from the rear exhaust vents, improving thermal efficiency compared to standard laptop lids. We also adjusted the shape of the intake to reduce noise levels further and make the acoustic profile less obtrusive. Zephyrus runs cool enough to avoid throttling and quiet enough to enjoy your game.

3_Breathe Deeply

Aura Sync for Ultimate Personalization

Aura Sync technology gives you the freedom to customize and synchronize lighting effects with compatible gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your entire setup a consistent look and feel. With a full spectrum of colors to choose from, as well as six different lighting modes that can be accessed via the Aura control panel, Aura Sync technology lets you express your persona, or the feel of the game you’re currently playing. ROG Zephyrus’ keyboard is positioned at the front of the chassis to allow better cooling for the internal components and offer a more comfortable, familiar position for gamers accustomed to desktop keyboards. Aura RGB lighting lets you customize colors and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, and you can adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately to adapt to MOBA, FPS, and other games. Anti-ghosting tech ensures your commands are interpreted instantly and correctly. The ergonomically designed keys have 1.4mm of travel for greater comfort and accuracy when gaming and typing. With an expected lifetime of 20 million presses, the keys offer exceptional durability and reliability for heavy use.

ROG HyperDrive for Blazing-Fast Storage Speeds

ROG Zephyrus features an extraordinary 512 GB HyperDrive SSD based on the latest NVM Express (NVMe) and PCI Express technologies. With ultra-fast access times and blistering transfer rates, the M.2 drive loads games, apps, and other data at warp speed. Its copious capacity has ample storage for everything you need.

* Actual specification may vary according to configuration.

Impeccable Gaming Visuals

ROG Zephyrus’ IPS display has a 144Hz refresh rate that lets you enjoy exceptionally smooth gaming at a true 144 frames per second, plus an ultra-fast 3ms response time that reduces blurring with rapid motion. Everything looks and feels fluid, especially fast-paced games. With wide viewing angles and 100% sRGB gamut coverage, the panel also produces outstanding colors regardless of where you’re sitting.

* Actual specification may vary according to configuration.

6_Impeccable Gaming Visuals

Seamless Gameplay

NVIDIA G-SYNC technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to make gameplay silky smooth. G-SYNC minimizes perceived stuttering, reduces input lag, and eliminates visual tearing all without affecting system performance. You get the smoothest, fastest, and most immersive experience across a broad range of games.

7_Seamless Gameplay

Ultimate Virtual Reality Experiences

Take the plunge into virtual reality. With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics (Max-Q), ROG Zephyrus delivers smooth, stutter-free VR performance with frame rates exceeding 90FPS. Plug-and-play compatibility with leading VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive lets you easily enjoy fully immersive VR environments. ROG Zephyrus is also certified by Microsoft for Windows Mixed Reality Basic applications, so you can use it with the ASUS Windows Mixed Reality headset. It’s time to explore a whole new world of games and experiences.

8_Ultimate Virtual Reality Experiences

Extensive Connectivity

ROG Zephyrus is jam-packed with the latest connectivity to give you blazing-fast transfer rates and maximum compatibility. The USB Type-C port delivers up to 40Gbps to Thunderbolt devices—four times the bandwidth of USB 3.1 Gen 2—while two USB 3.1 Gen 1 and two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports are ready for all your existing gear. You can also run a large ROG gaming monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC via DisplayPort over Type-C USB or use HDMI 2.0 to connect 4K TVs at 60Hz.

* Actual specification may vary according to configuration.

9_Extensive Connectivity

Streaming-Friendly Features

ROG Zephyrus comes with a host of streaming-friendly features, so you can share and broadcast your gaming sessions to friends or a larger audience. Sonic Studio Perfect Voice stabilizes the overall volume of outgoing and incoming voice communication while also reducing background noise. Casting Enhancer improves your voice clarity during streaming and recording, and the laptop’s built-in array microphone filters out ambient noise for even clearer vocal recording. The free version of XSplit Gamecaster allows you to live stream and broadcast directly to internet streaming platforms, or make recordings for easy sharing online. You can even interact with your audience while broadcasting on YouTube and Twitch.

Incredibly Immersive Sound

ROG Zephyrus uses Smart Amp technology to boost audio output by up to 80% over the previous generation. In most cases when pushing the volume to the limit, speakers can break down easily because of excess heat and excursion. The technology protects speakers by setting thermal and excursion thresholds, and monitoring variations due to loading and temperature influence.

Creative Design, but got some issues to fix 5/14/2020 9:00:00 PM

Overall Review: t's the most expensive laptop I've ever bought, and probably will ever buy, and it's very futuristic, with a 1080maxq built into a thin, thin body, but there's a lot of things can be an improvement in the original mold.

The thin and light body design
Powerful hardware performance
Innovative cooling design/keyboard layout

Battery life is almost non-existent
The stereo will resonate with the keyboard and break the sound

Powerful but loud 1/19/2020 9:00:00 PM

Overall Review: Overall I am very pleased, I wanted a thin gaming laptop for travel and to replace my desktop. Spec wise and performance wise this is a great choice. I am especially a fan of the forward keyboard design. Most "gaming" laptops have the track pad under your WASD hand prompting you to either have to turn off your trackpad or deal with annoying taps.The integrated numpad and touchpad is a very nice feature as well, good use of space. If I am nitpicking, I do a lot of network work and wish the numpad had haptic feedback.

This machine does a good job of maintaining a consistent temp the cooling is very efficient and I have never exceeded a surface temp of 114f no matter the load.However to achieve this in such a small form factor requires some pretty loud fan action. THis is only really an issue when playing poorly optimized games like Ark.

Lastly, I knew I was making sacrifices going with such a slim device, but as a desktop replacement this device wants for ports. The RJ45 port is an included Dongle which eats up one of your precious few ports right out of the gate. I have been unable to find a suitable docking station yet to meet my needs so i am using a powered USB 3.0 hub. For reference I have the following devices that need ports. Device has 4 USB3.0 and 1 USB C;
Streaming Web cam
Secondary USB monitor
External HD
Headset dongle
Video editing shuttle

Additional space needed for:
Headset charging cable
Device charging cable
