ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VT LAPTOP REVIEW
This review focuses mainly on the gaming performance of this machine.
An incredibly slick exterior with a smooth brushed aluminium top panel emblazoned with the Asus ROG logo illuminated in a cool orange glow.
Opening the lid reveals more of the same orange and black colour work which extends over to the WASD keys giving the laptop a unique look.
LED’s illuminate the chiclet style keyboard, featuring a full num-pad.
Below this we find a nice smooth multi-touch touchpad.
The screen on this particular model is a 4k panel, it is incredibly sharp and makes reading text an absolute pleasure due to such a high pixel density.
Other models can be purchased with 1080p screens too if 4k isn’t something you need.
The model I have also has a 256GB NVME PCI SSD installed, these units outperform conventional 2.5″ SSD’s by a substantial margin.
If you want the fastest performing drive in your laptop, get one that supports this!
Coupling an Intel i7 with an Nvidia GTX970M gives this laptop a really solid performance base to run some of the latest games at settings that might just surprise you!
( During the review period of this model, newer units are now available with Nvidia 10 series GPU’s for even more powerful gaming performance )
Games tested :
Dark Souls 3
