ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 in-depth review

There has been a lot of buzz around the new NVIDIA Max-Q design and there's a big reason why. NVIDIA's new "fancy technology" finally allows implementing a powerful GPU inside a lean and portable chassis. And so the ASUS ROG Zephyrus notebook is one of the first to receive the GTX 1080 with Max-Q design resulting in really small trade-offs in performance and decent thermals under load. But in order to achieve that, ASUS used an unusual design similar to the Acer Predator Triton 700. Sound[...]

Pros

  • Good build quality
  • Clean and sophisticated design
  • Incredibly thin and portable
  • Excellent IPS panel with G-Sync support and 120Hz refresh rate
  • The screen doesn't use PWM across all brightness levels
  • Well-designed cooling system - keeps the heat away from the user's hands and runs both chips at reasonable temperatures

Cons

  • Lower than usual maximum brightness for an IPS panel
  • Limited upgradability (only one M.2 SSD slot and one RAM slot)
  • Shallow keyboard, small touchpad
  • Poor battery life
