Zephyrus G - Did Asus Deliver?

  • čas přidán 10. 05. 2019
  • My review of the Asus Zephyrus G - GA502. This is the best gaming laptop from Asus for thin and light gaming on a budget.
    Zephyrus G - amzn.to/2Vaq9g8
    The GA502 has an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H combined with a GTX 1660 Ti. One of the first gaming laptops using this combination of hardware.

    One of the first laptops out there with the AMD / Nvidia Combo. It's super thin for the performance and price. Would you get this?

    How did you open the back cover? I tried to open mine, and it just doesn't come off. I followed the instructions (loosen but don't remove cover screw, and unscrew the rest), but still doesn't come off.

      @Akdas Ya, thats a partial reason why I bought this. But raw performance wise, this lacks behind the similar laptops like the Lenovo Legion or the Helios 300. But temps and noise level is better than those 2. Only issue is I can't seem to find a way to undervolt the ryzen cpu in here, cuz AMD doesnt have one for ryzen laptops.

    • Akdas
      Akdas Před 3 dny

      @BrownGuyYash yes but the i hate the design on the helios i really like the zephyrus and strix line

    • BrownGuyYash
      BrownGuyYash Před 3 dny

      @Akdas Its on the lighter side imo. My last laptop was an Dell Inspiron 7559 (gtx 960m 4gb).
      For thermals, it tends to get warm if ur gaming on performance or turbo mode where the fan kicks in loud, but its managable. Honestly, you might wanna look at the new Predator Helios 300, since its at the same price point ($1200), but comes with an i7 and a non max-q 1660ti.

    • Akdas

    Why is it that Asus puts thunderbolt on devices that don't need it(ROG/TUF laptops) and don't put thunderbolt on devices that actually need it(Zenbooks)?

    Hi Dave, I have a quick question. Is it possible to use 1440p res in Windows mode if you use external monitor?

  • Fainted -Ikaros
    Fainted -Ikaros Před 28 dny

    Okay Dave, I need your help. I am between this device and the Predator Helios 300. I usually play games like Warframe, Overwatch and Apex. My gripe lands more in knowing that the Helios has more in the room of performance but the Zephyrus is thinner and lighter and I do intend to lug around the computer in my bag for university for upwards of 6 hours. I would love some input to help me with the decision. (Both of them are more than powerful enough for my university work)


    Hi Dave, i always enjoy your videos. Could you make a "top 5" of the best notebooks with GTX1660ti card? I have doubts on which to buy. Sorry my english, i'm from Brasil!! Lol !! Thank you very much!
