ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VT-DS74 15.6″ FHD Gaming Laptop


Asus ROG Strix Review I’ve been fairly vocal about how bored I am
with gaming laptop manufacturers doing the typical black-and-red-edge gamer color motif. Asus listened sort of. Instead of black and
red, the company took the nuclear option and went with black and neon orange.
The majority of the lid is constructed from black brushed aluminum with a pair of orange
darts drawing attention to the fluorescent Republic of Gamers emblem in the center. Toward the bottom of the lid, you’ll see another
more subtle reference to the ROG brand. Usually, I prefer glossy displays, as they
tend to deliver the vividness I crave. However, the Strix’s 15.6-inch matte panel
does make a powerful case to jump ship. The 1080p display served up rich color, deep
contrast and sharp details during the Star Trek: Beyond trailer. Uhuru’s jet-black hair looked gorgeous as
the cascading light played up its warm brown highlights. I also got an up-close-and-personal look at
the navy blue and white alien menacing her, complete with its raised facial ridges topped
by round, white nodules. To ensure gamers get the high frame rates
and smooth graphics needed for triple A titles like Witcher 3 or Rise of the Tomb Raider, Asus paired the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M GPU
with 6GB of VRAM that’s double the normal configuration. The Strix proved its mettle during my Doom
play-through, delivering a heaping helping of blood and guts at 42 frames per second
on high as my chainsaw chewed through a demon’s sternum. Knocking the settings down to medium caused
the frame rates to jump to 51 fps. Garish color accents aside, the 15.6-inch
is fairly portable and packs a wallop. Even better, if offers a captivating 1080p
display, a comfortable keyboard and nearly 6 hours of battery life. We just wish the GL502VT ran cooler and brought
more bass. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
