We tested ASUS ROG G501 with some more interesting games, including GTA 5

We spent some time testing the new ASUS ROG G501 with a bunch of interesting and GPU-demanding games, which we added to its detailed review.

We ran the tests at Lowest, Medium and Maximum settings. Since Mortal Combat X has Vsync enabled and is capped to 60 fps, we just ran it at Max graphic settings. The good news is that G501 handles it just fine. Also, we checked how the latest drivers (350.12) affect the performance, comparing the results to the ones scored with 350.05.

You can see how the laptop fares with the games below, and if you haven’t done so already, you can go straight to its in-depth analysis.

This looks quite nice. I am just about to buy a new laptop and I am keeping my eye on this in the last weeks. Can you comment anything additional about the temperature and fan noise during the max settings gameplays? I read you initial review and this looks optimistic but the more tests are done the easier for me to make up my mind.
