ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 is a revolutionary gaming laptop. Despite its thinner design, it has the components to rival high-end gaming desktops. Including GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics, a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 7700HQ processor, an optional 120Hz display, and Windows 10 Professional. Asus constructed the body to a mere 16.9-17.9 mm. At the same time managed to maintain a powerful cooling thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System. The sleek interior also includes an RGB keyboard that will feel familiar to gamers who typically play on desktop PCs.
Slim and Sleek with Max Q Design
Max-Q design is an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Everything’s engineered for the ultimate thin gaming laptop experience, including the laptop, chip, drivers, thermal and electrical components, and more.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a whole new level. It has a slim profile just 16.9-17.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.2kg, but that doesn’t stop it from packing the latest GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 introduces the exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that breaks all the rules. AAS combines intelligent design with innovative technologies. The goal is to give gamers what they need – an ultra-slim laptop that runs cooler and quieter without sacrificing performance.
When the laptop is opened, the bottom flexes to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with unique AAS technology, this gap improves airflow by 40% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling. You can do intense gaming with impeccable stability and no throttling. ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 offers the highest level of performance in the smallest chassis.
AAS incorporates a unique AeroAccelerator (AA) technology that increases the speed and efficiency of airflow through the laptop. It starts with the carefully shaped aluminum alloy shroud around the intake, which has curved edges and raised guides that channel more cool air into the fan. The fan blades are made of a special liquid crystal polymer that lets us reduce the thickness by 33% compared to traditional designs. We can add more blades as a result, improving airflow through the fan by 26%. Cool air passes over heatsink fins just 0.1 mm thick — half the thickness of typical fins. The thinner profile reduces air resistance while letting us squeeze in more fins to increase the surface area for better heat dissipation.
Ultimate Gaming Performance
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 is all about bringing innovative technologies and incredible gaming performance to an ultra-slim, portable, and stylish gaming laptop. Intel’s 7th Generation Core i7 processor and GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics let the machine go toe-to-toe with the most hardcore gaming laptops — and even high-end desktops. Break all the rules with a true game-changer.
120Hz Display for Impeccable Visuals
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 with 120Hz display lets you enjoy exceptionally smooth gaming at a true 120 frames per second. Everything feels fluid, especially fast-paced games. With wide viewing angles and 100% sRGB gamut coverage, the panel also produces outstanding colors regardless of where you’re sitting.
Seamless Gameplay with NVIDIA G-SYNC
NVIDIA G-SYNC technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to make gameplay silky smooth. G-SYNC minimizes perceived stuttering, reduces input lag, and eliminates visual tearing all without affecting system performance. You get the smoothest, fastest, and most immersive experience across a broad range of games.
Ultimate VR Experiences
Take the plunge into virtual reality. With the latest GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics, ROG Zephyrus delivers smooth, stutter-free VR performance with frame rates exceeding 90FPS. Compatibility with leading VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive let you easily enjoy fully immersive VR environments. It’s time to explore a whole new world of games and experiences.
