Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503RW-LN060W

50% rechargeable in 30 minutes, this versatile multimedia laptop with a thin and light gray design in aluminum magnesium alloy and angular lines has an original and rather elegant gamer look.

Opens 180° completely flat thanks to its ErgoLift hinge that is slightly raised forward when opened, it is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 blades), 6 heat pipes, air outlets but also by Thermal Grizzly thermal paste.

This creative gaming laptop is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 2 USB-C (compared to 1 usual), Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and better than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers that perform up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connecting to USB 3.0 peripherals.

While an infrared webcam technology is integrated, you can authenticate yourself biometrically through facial recognition through Windows Hello technology.

We note the absence of a numeric keypad, which is very practical for entering numbers, which will not fail to be regretted by some, especially since this function is standard from 15 inches.
Asus could offer instead its NumberPad (NumPad) technology thanks to which it is possible, when necessary, to convert the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad, but this choice was not made here.
Fortunately, you can still backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to make them more recognizable in the dark.

The screen is interesting to gamers as well as creators and High Definition enthusiasts. Because it uses limited latency with a refresh rate of 240Hz that clearly improves fluidity with games, while the standard is 60Hz.
In addition, the screen displays colors that are more faithful than usual with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its DCI-P3 and IPS characteristics. It also uses 2.5K definition which is higher than Full HD along with 16: 9 format suitable for videos. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen also offers better visibility than a glossy panel in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503RW-LN060W

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503RW-LN060W may appeal to those looking to get a versatile, elegant multimedia portable 15-inch mobile PC that’s powerful, especially for gaming and work.

Playing the latest, resource-intensive 3D games with peace of mind is possible with this thin and light designer gaming laptop. Even the 2.5K screen definition requires more graphic calculations than Full HD, which implies a lower number of fps.
It must be said that it is equipped with one of the most powerful mobile graphics cards today, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere.

Gamers will therefore be attracted and creative ones too. Because the onboard GeForce RTX 3070 Ti accelerates processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

In concrete terms, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology according to the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers as much as possible the Radeon 680M graphics module that is inserted into the processor and is less powerful because it consumes less energy that promotes autonomy.

And certainly the autonomy is an undeniable asset of this configuration as it is about 9 hours on the battery in light use. Nomads will be especially pleased that this computer’s transportability is facilitated by its compact weight and its compactness.
But this includes heating and noise in case of extreme stress (eg games, treatment).

This is the AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Rembrandt Ryzen 9 6900HS Octo Core processor containing the Radeon 680M. This is associated with a large amount of RAM of 32 GB.
Suffice it to say that the huge overall power provided is clearly higher than most models on the market.

This powerful core clearly accompanies the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti very well in games. And will be attracted to creators because it provides faster processing than Quad/Hexa Core and 8/16 GB DDR4, the difference is particularly strong in areas that use CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multicores, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Storage is not to be missed, entrusted to a 1 TB SSD, a comfortable capacity that can accommodate many games, software and files.
Above all, SSD offers interesting advantages compared to a hard disk, such as greater shock resistance, quiet operation, lower energy consumption and higher speed.

Thanks to SSD, for example, you can get online game cards faster than a hard drive. And software/game launch, processing and start/stop are done faster.

To contain temperatures, it is possible to use in addition to this versatile multimedia creator gamer laptop a ventilated support (remember to check the measurements carefully!).
