Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502GU point by point audit
At the point when it downpours, it pours. This is a proverb that has commonly been valid for Asus dispatches at Computex before and it’s not going to change at any point in the near future. The Taiwanese gadgets maker had an extensive rundown of PC models to declare at Computex 2019 in Taipei. The rundown incorporated a revived scope of ZenBook and VivoBook models and the ScreenPad Plus-prepared ZenBook Duo/Pro Duo. The rundown additionally incorporated a newly denews24nationed group of ROG gaming PCs, one of which was the Zephyrus M GU502.
From the outset, it’s anything but difficult to tell that the Zephyrus M denews24nation has developed a considerable amount. The Zephyrus M GU502 is lighter, more minimal, and even a touch more curbed in appearance. Yet, that is most likely on the grounds that the lighting and cooling frameworks are fairly relaxed on the PC. Our survey unit was the GU502GU variation. It was fueled by an Intel ninth Gen Core i7 CPU, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti designs card, and 16GB of RAM alongside 512GB of strong state stockpiling. This being the main PC to enter our test lab with a ninth Gen Intel chip, we were anxious to have a go on it. Peruse on to perceive how the new “Zephy” performed.
Build and Denews24nation <p>The Zephyrus M GU502 measures 18.9 millimeters in stature and weighs 1.9 kilograms, which, as indicated by Asus, is 25 percent more slender and 45 percent lighter than ordinary 15- inch workstations. I would say, I felt the Zephyrus M GU502 was about a similar size and weight as some other 15.6-inch model however weighed shockingly less for a gaming PC. Getting the PC with one hand and moving starting with one room then onto the next was an out of the blue simple issue. The brushed metallic cover offered adequate grasp as well.
The base board waits on this Zephyrus M
As per Asus, the outside of the Zephyrus M GU(***********************************’s) utilizes a kick the bucket cast magnesium combination. The top spread, which, in spite of showing some news24nations of flex, is toughly manufactured and hard-wearing. The zone around the console utilizes a delicate touch paint that is like the material Dell utilizes in a portion of its G-arrangement gaming workstations. The impact it makes is satisfying; the palm rest is agreeable enough for a long time of console use. In the hands, the PC looks downplayed at this point striking. It doesn’t shout for all to hear with brilliant tones and lights however it additionally doesn’t glance lost in an assortment of standard workstations.
It weighs 1.9 kilogrammes
The greatest visual change in the current year’s Zephyrus M is obviously the denews24nation of the base board. With the GU502 not utilizing Asus’ Active Aerodynamic System, the base board stays fixed, not at all like past models where the base board opened up alongside the showcase pivot to give an extra stream of cool air. Taking everything into account, the GU502 is likely the most developed looking Zephyrus M yet, and that is not an awful thing by any stretch of the imagination. I for one like the way the new Zephy looks and feels in the hands. In case you’re holding the Zephyrus M GU502 with your eyes shut, it’s difficult to tell without looking that it’s a gaming PC. To you, it should feel like some other 15.6-incher with more honed edges.
Show, Audio, and IO
The Zephyrus M GU502 highlights a 15.6-inch IPS LCD screen with a Full HD goal, 3ms reaction time, and 144Hz invigorate rate. The matte completion keeps the screen liberated from glare, which can without much of a stretch occupy any individual who is either working or gaming. The PANTONE-approved showcase of the PC showed up brilliant and bright while watching motion pictures, perusing on the web, and messing around. Shadings seemed neither too immersed nor excessively cleaned out. The greatest brilliance seemed, by all accounts, to be adequate for most sufficiently bright territories. In rundown, the showcase on the Zephy is more than sufficient for a wide range of substance utilization.
Sound starting from the two terminating speakers of the Zephyrus M GU502 is noisy yet metallic. Tunes like Aerials by System of a Down and Starboy by The Weeknd sound cruel on the ears since highs (and now and again mids too) are excessively articulated. Lows, then again, are neither heard nor felt from the PC’s speakers. In case you’re a genuine gamer, it bodes well for you to purchase a couple of earphones or 2.1 PC speakers than depend on the units offered on the Zephyrus M GU502 for full stable.
The Zephyrus M GU502 accompanies a wide scope of ports for network. On the left, there’s a restrictive round-pin power port for charging, a LAN port, a full-size HDMI port, a USB-A 3.1 Gen 2 port, and two separate 3.5mm sound jacks for earphones and an amplifier. On the right, there are two USB-A 3.1 ports and a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 port, which consolidates DisplayPort 1.4 and highlights PD charging utilizing a reasonable force bank. The correct side additionally includes a Kensington lock opening for added security. Tragically, the Zephyrus M GU502 doesn’t accompany a unique mark scanner for quicker news24nation-ins.

Keyboard and Touchpad The console must be the Zephyrus M GU(***********************************'s) most finely designed component. The keys on this gaming PC have the perfect measure of separating, travel, and opposition. Composing long archives and messages on the RGB illuminated unit is a breeze. I especially like that it has devoted keys for Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down capacities, which are exceptionally helpful for text control. Furthermore, there are four devoted alternate way keys for controlling the volume, quieting the amplifier, and dispatching Asus' exclusive Armory CRATE application for lighting customisation and execution the board.
The console on the Zephyrus M GU502 highlights per-key RGB lighting customisation through the packaged Armory CRATE application, which implies you can play blend and match with the different tone and lighting alternatives that the application offers. Instances of the lighting designs accessible are Static, Strobing, Rainbow, Breathing, and Music. The lighting design on the console can likewise be exchanged utilizing the Fn and side bolt keys. My undisputed top choice is the Smart mode, which colors the console either green, yellow, or red, contingent upon the temperature of the CPU bundle. In rundown, the Zephyrus M GU502 has outstanding amongst other console units made by Asus lately.
The Zephyrus M GU(***********************************’s) finely designed console is supplemented by a similarly finely designed touchpad. Windows remembers it as an accuracy unit, which implies all the settings with respect to multi-finger taps and swipes can be altered inside Windows Settings. No outsider drivers or utilities are expected to make its best. The touchpad is anything but difficult to use for regular mouse pointer activities, for example, clicking, double tapping, swiping, and hauling.
The survey unit we got accompanied an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU with 16GB of RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti illustrations card with 6GB of video memory. Capacity was dealt with by a solitary Intel 660p PCIe NVMe strong state drive with 512GB of space. This is the primary PC in our test lab to include an Intel ninth Gen Core arrangement CPU. I should state that it was a lovely shock to open the PC up unexpectedly and discover a “9th Gen” sticker within. Obviously Asus needs to be one of the main producers to bring Intel’s most current chips to India. As should be obvious, the Zephyrus M GU502 sports not an Intel U-Series CPU but rather a H-Series unit, which, as per Intel, speaks to elite designs.
On our CPU benchmark tests, the survey unit performed pretty much respectaly. On PCMark 8’s Conventional Creative test, the Zephy scored 3952. In correlation, the Dell G7 and Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 scored 3925 and (**********
