laptops are really amazing, aren’t they? Is there feature for impossibility
here? Nothing for sure! Official works, graphics designs, listening to songs,
watching HD movies, gaming, everything is here. Gaming may be the most eye –
catching and breath-taking installation of a laptop. In the early 90’s, those
games were 2D and not very thrilling. But in the last one decade we have
seen couple of amazing revolution of games on PC.
have become well-designed with 3D support. Also the resolution of a game is
increasing continuously. So if you want to play Pro Evolution Soccer, Prince of
Persia, Need For Speed, Star wars, Watchdogs and some other high resolution
graphics games, you have to possess a capable laptop. Otherwise, you may suffer
from lagging and other problems.
very good example of such perfect gaming laptop is the Ultra Slim ASUS ROG ZEPHYRUS (GX501) –
Slimmest Gaming Laptop with Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1080.
Therefore, here comes a review of the Asus laptop focusing on the astonishing
specifications of the laptop.
ROG Zephyrus is an avant-garde gaming laptop born from ROG’s persistent dedication to
innovation. Despite being slimmer than all previous ROG laptops, it has the
hardware to challenge high-end gaming desktops: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX
1080 graphics with Max-Q design, a 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processor,
an optional 120Hz wide-view display, and Windows 10 Pro. ROG slimmed the body
to a mere 16.9-17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling and unbeatable
acoustic efficiency thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic
System. The sleek chassis also includes an RGB keyboard that will feel familiar
to gamers who typically play on desktop PCs.

The GX501’s port selection is
decent. There’s a total of four USB 3.0 Type A ports on the each side, plus an
analog combo audio jack, full-size HDMI 2.0 and a 40GBps Thunderbolt 3 port,
plus a Kensington lock. And because the laptop
is too thin for a full-size Ethernet port (which is mind-boggling, to be
honest), ASUS includes a USB converter in the box. We don’t normally mention AC
adapters in reviews, but in the Zephyrus’s case, it seems necessary: It’s huge!
Honestly, it seems more reminiscent of a PC power supply than a laptop’s.
That’s probably due to the massive amount of juice the laptop needs when you’re
KEYBOARD AND TRACKPAD
Unlike most other laptops, ASUS pushed the
Zephyrus’ keyboard and trackpad all the way to its front edge. That allowed the
company to place all of its high-powered hardware toward the back of the case
— in particularly, the CPU and GPU — so it could all be cooled at once. The
keyboard is comfortable to type on, even though the buttons offer very little
travel. Not surprisingly, this setup was better suited to gaming than typing.
Moving around first-person shooters using the WASD keys felt just as responsive
as my desktop keyboard.
You can also transform the trackpad into a virtual numberpad by
hitting the key right above it, which some gamers might appreciate for hitting
hotkeys. It wasn’t as accurate as having a physical numberpad, but it felt more
convenient than just relying on the standard top number row.
The Intel Core
i7 processor (7th Generation) and NVIDIA GeForce, GTX 1080 graphics in the ROG
Zephyrus system, produces a super laptop that can rival with most other
high-end desktops and laptop built for intense gaming. We should as well not
forget windows ten contribution to overall performance as it helps in
In the 3D Mark
Graphics/ Fire Strike Extreme performance test, ROG Zephyrus delivers an
amazing gaming experience.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
The Asus ROG
Zephyrus G501 is available, and the cost of this incredible machinery is quite
high. USA, price starts from $2,699. According to ROG, Republic of Gamers,
configurations will differ in each region.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus
GX501 is unlike any gaming laptop we’ve seen before. It’s thin, yet also
incredible powerful. While its battery life suffers because of that, it’s also
a machine that could take the place of many gaming devices. No
matter how you look at it, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 is remarkable. It marks
a new era for gaming laptops, one where you can expect a thin, 5-pound notebook
to pack as much power as an 8- to 10-pound machine from a few years ago. It
could conceivably be the answer to all of your gaming needs, even on your
television, since it’s easy to move around your house. It’s a shame that the
battery life stinks, but that’s a decent compromise for a gaming laptop unlike
