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?
That pubg gameplay winning using only ump😂😂😂
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.
yup fuck the left handed people
3ms not good 1 ms the best.
Hey Dave Have you reviewed the GX531 RTX 2070 series? If yes can you share your insights?
damn.. battery is a big minus for me. I would have loved this laptop
ya que la has probado , referente a los ventiladores . es muy ruidoso cuando la utilizas mucho tiempo ?
The laptop is very well built lnfo.help/-AsusROG?ef 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.
What is the battery life
This or acer predator helios 300? That one has really good thermals aswell and is cheaper.
bro which laptop is best for gaming and 3d work and editing work under 1 lakh 90 Acer Helios 700 is good or which laptop u prefer
How much does it cost?
External monitor & clamshell not possible with this kind of design?
No palm rest, n its to expensive for gaming laptop..
Anyone using it currently please comment. Is it worth buying it in 2020 for engineering work, such as cad and so on?
Ooff only 3 hours
These is amazing ❤️ can I used for office work or online job..
Apple should license the patent for that vent or design something similar
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
I was so confused by the amazon page because in the picture it was a numpad so i just saw mouse buttons and thought there was no trackpad

Using the Print Button for Screenshots is so 1990…Use Windows + Shift + S – No Snippingtool needed 😉
I have problems with that same laptop. It restarts itself. I have the bios updated and fans and new thermal paste. I need help.
DAVE THE PRINT SCREEN IS LOCATED BETWEEN THE RIGHT ALT and CTRL buttons….check it at 2:44

Hi can anyone help me please
Im after a new laptop ive seen 2 i like
Asus zephryus Gm501 – https://www.asus.com/uk/Laptops/ROG-Zephyrus-M-GM501/
asus zephryus g ga502du – https://uk.store.asus.com/asus-rog-ga502du-hn100t-notebook-black-39-6-cm-15-6-1920-x-1080-pixels-amd-ryzen-7-16-gb-ddr4-sdram-512-gb-ssd-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1660-ti-6gb-gddr6-wi-fi-6-802-11ax-windows-10-home.html
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.
Please do a test for Asus Zephyrus S17 300hz refresh rate
dang, wish i bought this instead of my ROG Strix G17 :'(
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
Is this still worth it in 2021 anyone?
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.
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.
is it worth it to buy it in 2021? thx
how many nits of brightness?
It's not touchscreen right
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…
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?
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).
