Asus ROG Zephyrus S15 GX502LXS ASUS The 2020 Asus Zephyrus S15 GX502 refines on the 2019 Zephyrus, which was already a solid performance ultraportable. The updated hardware allows it to perform roughly 20-25% faster in multi-core CPU loads and 10% faster in games, with slightly improved noise levels and thermals, and Asus also implemented a 300 Hz screen with dual Optimus/GSyns modes and added Thunderbolt 3 support. At the same time, though, the top-tier 2020 Zephyrus S15 is a significantly more expensive product now, and still lacks the big battery and some of the features available with the competition.

    So much power inside, but still only FHD screen. 4K gaming is minimum.

      There's no 15-inch 4K panel with fast response and high refresh. But you can game on an external monitor.

    Hope to see the review of gx701 zephyr s17

      We've reviewed the 2019 model, but don't have the 2020 update yet. The angle is about 145 degrees on both

    Would be great if you could review the new Aero 15 at some point, since it looks like the new design has done a lot to improve the thermal performance.

      I'll try to source it out, but no promise. We rarely get Gigabyte laptops for review

    Do you know if the heatsink is nickel plated to ensure longevity of liquid metal? I don't want something that I have to reapply LM to every year.
