Asus Incredible Innovation.
ROG Zephyrus GX501 is a revolutionary gaming laptop born from ROG's persistent dedication to innovation. Despite being thinner than all previous ROG laptops, Zephyrus has the hardware to rival high-end gaming desktops: with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5 graphics with Max-Q Design, a powerful 7th Generation Intel processor, and a 120Hz G-Sync wide-view display. ROG slimmed the body to a mere 16.9-17.9mm while maintaining powerful cooling thanks to a clever new air-flow design: Active Aerodynamic System. The sleek chassis 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 worlds thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Everythings engineered for the ultimate thin gaming laptop experience, including the laptop, chip, drivers, thermal and electrical components, and more.
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 doesnt stop it from packing the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5 graphics.
Play it Cool
ROG Zephyrus GX501 is armed with an exclusive Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) that breaks all the rules. AAS combines intelligent design with innovative technologies to give gamers what they want: an ultra-slim laptop that runs cooler and quieter without sacrificing performance.
When the laptop is opened, a portion of the bottom flexes to create 20% more open space for air circulation. Along with our unique AeroAccelerator technology, this gap improves airflow by 40% and reduces temperatures by 20% compared to conventional cooling. You can game for hours on end with impeccable stability and no throttling. ROG Zephyrus 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 aluminium 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.
Keyboard With Aura RGB
ROG Zephyrus' keyboard is positioned at the front of the chassis to allow better cooling for the internal components and offer a more comfortable, familiar position for gamers accustomed to desktop keyboards. Aura RGB lighting lets you customise colours and dynamic effects for the entire keyboard, and you can adjust the QWER and WASD clusters separately to adapt to MOBA, FPS, and other games.
Ultimate Gaming Performance
ROG Zephyrus GX501 is all about bringing innovative technologies and incredible gaming performance to an ultra-slim, portable, and stylish gaming laptop. Intel's powerful 7th Generation i7 processor and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5 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.
ROG HYPERDRIVE for Fast Storage Speeds
ROG Zephyrus GX501 features an extraordinary 512GB HyperDrive SSD based on the latest NVM Express (NVMe) and PCI Express technologies. With ultra-fast access times and blistering transfer rates, the M.2 drive loads games, apps, and other data at warp speed. Its copious capacity has ample storage for everything you need.
120Hz Display for Impeccable Visuals
ROG Zephyruss 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 colours regardless of where you're sitting.
Seamless Gameplay with NVIDIA G-SYNC
NVIDIA G-SYNC technology synchronises the displays refresh rate with the GPUs frame rate to make gameplay silky smooth. G-SYNC minimises 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 NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics, ROG Zephyrus delivers smooth, stutter-free VR performance with frame rates exceeding 90FPS. Compatibility with one of the leading VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive let you easily enjoy fully immersive VR environments. Its time to explore a whole new world of games and experiences.
ROG Zephyrus GX501 is jam-packed with the latest connectivity to give you blazing-fast transfer rates and maximum compatibility. The USB Type-C port delivers up to 40Gbps to Thunderbolt devices four times the bandwidth of USB 3.1 gen 2 while four USB 3.1 gen1 ports are ready for all your existing gear. With HDMI 2.0, you can connect to 4K TVs at 60Hz.
ROG Zephyrus GX501 equips Smart Amp technology to optimise audio output. In most cases when pushing the volume to the limit, speakers can break down easily because of excess heat and excursion. Smart Amp technology protects speakers by setting thermal and excursion thresholds, and monitoring variations due to loading and temperature influence.
The Powerful Intel 7th Generation CPU - Intel Inside
The powerful 7th generation Intel Core H series processor utilises a power-efficient microarchitecture, advanced process technology and silicon optimisations to deliver faster performance than processors of the previous generation. CPU core performance of Core i7-7700HQ is 8% faster than i7-6700HQ under average usage. CPU multimedia performance is enhanced, making it 10% faster than i7-6700HQ. 4K video decoding/transcoding is also improved 15%.
