Generally, laptops intended to be an alternative to games are not the ones that are best carried from one place to another since their dimensions and weight do not accompany anything. Well, we have tested the ASUS ROG Zephyrus which is a model that can be a turning point for this to change radically without losing an iota of power. We show what it is that we have found this excellent gaming equipment.
The truth is that this model can be considered as an important evolutionary step in its product range, since aesthetically it takes a significant leap. And nothing else to see this is clear since the design it offers is differential. An example of what we say is that its shapes are striking, but less strident than other available options and, even, it must be said that its dimensions are 36 x 25 centimeters (the thickness is 18.9 millimeters , which is 25 % less than its predecessor) make it a contained model. And, beware, the weight is only 1.9 kilos , which is partially achieved since it is made with a magnesium alloy… we are sure it looks almost like a traditional model.
It should be noted that the touch is different on the inside so it is different from many other models in this product range -especially in the area where the wrists are supported, since it is soft and that adds comfort in use-, and this makes it a differential. And besides, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GU502GV-ES004T is not tacky, something that surely more than one will appreciate since it does not have a raucous appearance. Besides, it should be noted that the keyboard is of good quality and is backlit, admitting different configurations depending on the needs.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus ventilation and connectivity
It should be noted that a good number of grids are included in the case of this laptop, which, among other things, has the function of dissipating heat in the best possible way . This we have to say that it succeeds and that, no matter how much the team is forced, the temperature does not rise too much, which ensures that it can be used at all times without worrying about this detail.
In terms of connectivity, what the laptop offers is more than enough so that all users who buy it see all their demands resolved. Thus, for example, three USB type A ports are included and there is no lack of HDMI video output (and an Ethernet socket if you want to use cable to access the Internet). Besides, the computer does not lack a USB type C, so if you have accessories that use it, you will not have any problem to take full advantage of them.
Hardware that doesn’t compromise
The truth is that this is a laptop that can be considered as top, which has the result that in all the tests we have carried out with the games, its behavior is excellent (they are even very high resolutions). This, among other things, is achieved because the processor is a ninth-generation Intel Core i7 that ensures more than enough “brute force” to keep everything flowing smoothly. Besides, and this is very important, the graphics card is a GeForce RTX 2060 with 6 GB of dedicated memory (we always talk about the model we have tested). The truth is that the behavior is excellent and we have not noticed any fatigue with 3D titles no matter how long the sessions are with the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GU502GV-ES004T. The fact is that the performance is really high and the frames per second that are achieved do not drop much despite the use of high resolutions and high graphic qualities in the titles.
RAM is another of the elements that stand out in the equipment, since what is integrated in the unit that we have had is 16 GB (DDR4), so it does not falter at any time. As it can not be otherwise, the storage is SSD type so that there are no high latencies when transferring data, and the amount of available space is as follows: a maximum of 1 TB. Therefore, there is no crack in this laptop.
It is important to indicate that the autonomy according to the manufacturer reaches eight hours of habitual use, but it all depends on what is required of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GU502GV-ES004T. In our tests, if the equipment is used with office automation software and the like, the indicated brand is met quite well, but by constantly using games, things change a little and times are reduced (which is logical). The case is that it is perfectly fulfilled.
Some additional details of this equipment
One that we liked is that the noise that is generated when using it is quite contained (to the maximum requirement, yes, this makes something that does not seem strange to us). The ASUS ROG Zephyrus GU502GV-ES004T arrives with Windows 10 as the operating system, and it should be noted that a management application called ROG Armory Crate of the components is included that allows you to customize its power in a simple and, most importantly, secure way. By the way, no problems with the sound since the equipment has Hi-Res certification.
The screen that includes the equipment we are talking about has dimensions of 15.6 inches Full HD and its quality is really good … very good, it should be said. The panel is IPS type and the frequency reaches 240 Hz , so we have no problem with the action titles. Besides, G-Sync technology is included to make everything work spectacularly. With a response of three milliseconds, making it fit in the gaming segment.
A very good gaming laptop that comes with very powerful hardware options, which ensures great performance and has no problem with temperature. With a very good quality screen and very wide connectivity, there is no doubt that this model is an excellent possibility in the market since, especially, it attracts attention for its design. Without a doubt, a team to consider .
