    Really impressed by the thermals on the Zephyrus S. The thinnest gaming laptop in the world is one of THE best cooled thin and light devices on the market. Thanks for watching!

    This guy look like Jordi haha

    Can I play call of duty modern warfare on this laptop with out the frame rate dropping drastically?

    The thermals aren’t at all impressive. Now that maybe cause I live in the tropics where room temperature is atleast 28 C, but the CPU will be pushing 95C whilst in turbo mode for a game like Watch Dogs. To counteract this I’ve had to undervolt the CPU by 145mV and also underclock both the CPU and GPU(since it’s a shared heat channel and the gpu heat is dumped on the cpu). In general, performance is always banging!! But I like having lower temps for peace of mind. Killer hardware tucked into a package that can’t cool it efficiently—if you live in a cold environment you’ll be fine.

    Hey Dave Have you reviewed the GX531 RTX 2070 series? If yes can you share your insights?

    ya que la has probado , referente a los ventiladores . es muy ruidoso cuando la utilizas mucho tiempo ?

    The laptop is very well built It did come with a lot of stickers on it, which peeled off fairly easily. If there are stickers on the fan area of your laptop, wait till it heats up and they will peel of much easier. The screen looks great and has thin bezels due to Asus removing the webcam and packing it separately. I didn't mind this feature as I don't have use for a webcam. To note, there is still a mic built into the monitor.

    This or acer predator helios 300? That one has really good thermals aswell and is cheaper.

    Anyone using it currently please comment. Is it worth buying it in 2020 for engineering work, such as cad and so on?

  14. Albert John

  15. Andrew Logan

    Apple should license the patent for that vent or design something similar

  16. benji samuel

    Hello friends dont buy this laptop . I saw this video and got impressed from the laptop and I bought it. I dont do much of gaming and the computer graphic is got burnt just in one year. because it gets very hot for no reason. and now no one wants to repair it because this computer is very special in design and its parts are hard to find and new parts are so expensive. this laptop cost me 2400 in canada. and now its burnt its very sad. I feel so disappointed @Dave lee . I follow you like a computer God. :-(. you need to know people follow you seriously and they really take your advise before buying anything.

    Great commentary as always. Could you do an updated video with the RTX 2070 and 2080 to see if this laptops still remains cool. Thanks

    Using the Print Button for Screenshots is so 1990…Use Windows + Shift + S – No Snippingtool needed 😉

  22. I have problems with that same laptop. It restarts itself. I have the bios updated and fans and new thermal paste. I need help.

    Hi can anyone help me please
    Im after a new laptop ive seen 2 i like

    Asus zephryus Gm501 –

    asus zephryus g ga502du –

    Both are very similar. There both around £1000
    The problem im having is the gm501gm screen is too small with big bezels.
    The ga502du seems slightly underpowered and has a mobile cpu in.
    Im after something in between for around £1500.
    Can anybody recommend a model for me.
    It would need to have AAS. Where the cooling lid undernearth opens.

  25. MysticDragonWolf

    I got my Asus Zephyrus for 700….don’t get where the price of 1700$ is coming from

    Then again I did get mine from EBay

  26. Qi

    Is this still worth it in 2021 anyone?

  27. At 2:55 you say there is no print screen button on the keyboard but look at 2:05. There is a PrtSc button close to the right alt key.

  28. Ravi Peiris

    To me, having the trackpad on the right would be my equivalent of using my mouse on my right side as I'm right handed. But for left handed people, this setting would be more interesting.

  29. SpankMyFace

    I just bought this exact laptop on eBay for $500. I'm f*cking hyped! Now time to find out what a Razer Blade 15 is worth…

  30. Mevrix

    I just got my hands on one of these, and I really really like it so far.
    The only thing I'm worried about is overclocking. I always thought that overclocking can be harmful to laptops. I mean it could shorten the life of your hardwares.
    Or am I wrong?

  31. Hi Dave2D. Is this still a good buy in 2022? I like the layout of track pad's on the right. Please suggest a few others…(Cheers from South Africa).
