Slight and ground-breaking. Asus discharged the 17-inch adaptation of its top of the line gaming PC known as the GX531 soon after Nvidia propelled its Turing-based GPUs. In spite of its slimness, the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is very proficient and should strike dread into the hearts of the contenders.

There are three unique models on Asus' site. While the GX701GV highlights "just" a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060, the GX701GW accompanies a RTX 2070. And after that there is at long last our audit gadget that has a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q. Our survey gadget is assigned as the GX701GX and expenses around 3200 Euros ($3634). It has a Core i7-8750H and a G-Sync-empowered, 144-Hz Full HD show with a Pantone confirmation.

The greatest measure of RAM is constrained to 24 GB, 8 GB of which is patched to the motherboard. We figure this is anything but an especially decent choice. The equivalent goes for the way that the GX701 just includes one M.2 opening. The greatest contenders of the ROG Zephyrus S are other thin gaming scratch pad with Turing-based GPUs, for example, the Razer Blade 15, the Gigabyte Aero 15 and the Acer Predator Triton 500. We incorporated the previously mentioned gadgets in our survey for examination purposes.


The GX701 unequivocally takes after its 15-inch kin, which is known as the GX531. Notwithstanding the surprisingly set info gadgets, the 17-inch successor acquires the creative cooling framework. To improve air course, the two gadgets have a moving back spread, which airs out a little when you open the presentation cover, in this manner expanding the general thickness of the gadget (1.9 cm/0.02 in) by a couple of millimeters.

The downside of this component is shoddy unbending nature. While the GX701 is amazingly unbending when the presentation cover is shut, the case shows a ton more flex at a few points when the showcase top is open. This did not trouble us by and by and just the pieces of the undercarriage close to the screen appear to be influenced.

The case is very much constructed. The presentation cover, which is made of brushed metal, is similarly as great as the case, which is embellished with a copper stripe running along the edges. The fan flame broils at the back have a similar shading as the stripe that we referenced in the past sentence.

Asus could have invested some more energy improving the pivots. For a certain something, the opening point isn't especially wide, and for another, the showcase cover closes without anyone else at specific edges. The GX701 scores some significant focuses for its little measurements. On account of the extremely slim presentation bezels, the note pad has an impression of just 39.9 x 27.2 cm (15.7 x 10.7 in). This is little for a 17-inch workstation. For example, the as of late looked into and substantial G703GX has an impression of 42.5 x 31.9 cm (16.7 x 12.6 in).



The choice of ports leaves a blended impression. It is very admirable that the GX701 highlights five USB ports, three of which work at 3.1 Gen2 speeds. In any case, it is somewhat of a disgrace that the note pad does not have a SD card peruser, RJ45 Gigabit LAN port and a Thunderbolt 3 port. This downside is scarcely balanced by a HDMI 2.0 video yield (DisplayPort 1.4 by means of USB-C), the earphone jack and the Kensington Security Slot.

We are additionally not especially content with the situating of the ports. Since the two sides highlight warmth sinks, the ports are found exceptionally near the wrist rest, which implies that when you are utilizing wired outer mice, the wires will undoubtedly disrupt the general flow.

Left side: control attachment, HDMI 2.0 port, USB-A 3.1 Gen2 port, USB-C 3.1 Gen2 port with help for DisplayPort 1.4, 3.5-mm earphone jack

Right side: two USB-A 3.0 ports, USB-C 3.0 port, Kensington Lock


With regards to Wi-Fi execution, the GX701 sparkles. The producer utilizes an exceptionally quick Killer Wireless-AC 1550i Wi-Fi connector, which performs similarly just as the Intel Wireless-AC 9560. This Wi-Fi module is near the 700 Mb/s mark both when sending and accepting information (when it is one meter (~3 ft) away from our reference-grade switch Linksys EA8500).Software

According to common, clients get an entirely decent programming bundle from Asus. Here, the utility called "Arsenal Crate" becomes the dominant focal point. You can change many settings through this application. The principal tab is of generally intrigue. Here, you can see the memory use and the fan speed. This tab additionally enables you to pick between various distinctive power modes, for example, "Quiet", "Adjusted" and "Turbo". For our audit, we picked the "Windows" mode, which uses the framework's capacity plan and should guarantee a decent balance among execution and framework clamor.

Significant: You can pick between two GPU modes in "Ordnance Crate", to be specific Optimus (this innovation empowers programmed exchanging between a committed and an incorporated illustrations connector) and G-Sync (hostile to screen tearing innovation). We would prescribe the last mode for gaming in light of the fact that Optimus appears to decrease the edge rate (see news). For voyaging, however, the previous mode is increasingly suitable.


The crate contains a 230-watt control connector and (in specific locales) a little removable Full HD webcam, which can be set either on a work area with the assistance of a little stand or over the presentation cover. The gadget itself does not highlight a webcam, which is a quite intense proceed onward Asus' part.


The upkeep choices are exceptionally restricted. When you expel the four Torx tightens keeping the base spread spot, you will just approach the fans. So as to get to other inner segments, for example, the CPU, GPU, RAM and the SSD, you should dismantle the whole skeleton, which is sure to drive away a mess of laymen. Here, Asus should take an exercise from the Razer Blade 15 and the Gigabyte Aero 15.


The Asus scratch pad has a two year guarantee.

Information Devices 


The console is simply alright. It is nothing to get amped up for. It doesn't give a great deal of criticism. At the point when contrasted with other gaming journals, the incitation point does not feel clear and the keys feel soft. In addition, the movement separation is moderately short. The design is additionally not something you would need to think of home about. The little bolt enters specifically are not fit for gaming.

We docked a couple of more focuses as a result of the way that the quantities of the capacity keys are not illuminated. Other than that, we truly loved the per-key RGB backdrop illumination. Be that as it may, we wish it were increasingly uniform. Positive: clients can change the volume of the framework with the assistance of a handy wheel, which is situated over the console.


The Touchpad must be viewed as a stop-hole arrangement. In view of its little width, you will in some cases need to reset your fingers while moving the cursor over the screen. On account of the smooth surface, moving fingers over the cushion is simple. The Touchpad isn't extremely precise. It is additionally not appropriate for motions. The principle highlight of the Touchpad is the worked in numeric cushion, which can be empowered/impaired with the assistance of an exceptional key. There is some opportunity to get better with regards to the mouse catches. In contrast to the console, these catches make an uproarious, clacky sound.


The 17.3-inch Full HD show intrigues in practically all viewpoints.

In the event that you take the fair splendor (around 290 compact disc/m²) good and gone, the implicit IPS board looks exceptionally great. Both the dark estimation of 0.2 cd/m² and the complexity proportion of over 1400:1 are very decent. The shading space inclusion of 88% for sRGB and 57% for AdobeRGB ought to be sufficient for generally clients.

The delegated greatness of the presentation is its shading exactness. Much the same as the Gigabyte Aero 15, the GX701 offers a X-Rite Pantone affirmation. This is the reason the screen presentations hues in all respects precisely and shouldn't be aligned.

The bundle is adjusted off by quick reaction times and wide review edges. It takes the 144 Hz show under 10 ms to change from dark to white and from dim to dim. This is useful for an IPS board. In mix with Nvidia's G-Sync innovation, the GX701 gives an exceptionally smooth introduction, when playing computer games.


Both the hexa-center CPU and the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q guarantee that the workstation won't become out of date for quite a while. 24 GB of RAM, which our English survey gadget highlights (in Germany, 16 GB is the greatest), ought to likewise be all that could possibly be needed for most clients in the coming years. The 1 TB SSD is extremely extensive.


Intel's well-preferred Core i7-8750H fills in as the focal handling unit. The Coffee Lake-based processor is utilized in by far most of gaming scratch pad and can perform practically any assignment effortlessly.

On account of Intel's Turbo Boost Technology, the base clock pace of 2.2 GHz is supported impressively under burden. While in single-center applications the CPU works at up to 4.1 GHz, under full load it keeps running at up to 3.9 GHz.

Most workstations can keep up their greatest lift timekeepers just over a brief timeframe. In the Cinebench circle, the clock rate tumbled down to 3.2 GHz after the subsequent benchmark run, which likens to an exhibition drop of 10%. Here, the GX701 performs about just as the Gigabyte Aero 15 X9. Both the Acer Triton 500 and the Razer Blade 15 specifically demonstrate that things could be much more terrible, in light of the fact that their clock rates sink a lot further. Asus' own and a lot thicker Strix GL704 does best in the Cinebench circle.

Framework Performance 

The framework execution can give the challenge a keep running for its cash. In PCMark 10, the GX701GX comes in just short of the leader in our examination graph. With 5596 points, the 17.3-inch PC takes a spot in the middle of the Acer Predator Triton 500 and the Asus GL704GW. Since the OS is introduced on a SSD, Windows boots up exceptionally quick and works in all respects easily.

Graphics Card 

Taking a gander at the fresh out of the plastic new illustrations card is particularly energizing. With the new Turing age, Nvidia centers around the promising innovation known as beam following. Notwithstanding, there are at present no games out there that really bolster all usefulness of the Turing GPUs. Asus picked the second most dominant Turing-based GPU (GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q) for the GX701. The "Maximum Q" bit shows that this GPU accompanies lower control utilization to the detriment of execution. This is the most dominant GPU that is appropriate for reduced gadgets.

Hard Drive Devices 

As was recently referenced, the GX701 does not offer a 2.5-inch drive narrows (the space that would some way or another be involved by the drive inlet was utilized to build the battery limit). Rather, the Asus PC has one M.2-2280 space. Our audit model highlights a NVMe SSD from Samsung, which is known as the PM981 (MZVLB1T0HALR). The 1 TB SSD executes just as other PCIe-based capacity gadgets, in other words, it performs amazingly well. In any case, the Predator Triton 500 improves in the capacity benchmarks in view of its RAID 0 arrangement.

Gaming Performance 

We ran a great deal of gaming benchmarks to perceive how the different TDP evaluations of the RTX 2080 Max-Q influence the presentation. You can go to our GPU benchmarks page to perceive how the ROG Zephyrus S piles facing the Acer Triton 500 and different contenders.

The RTX 2080 Max-Q can run all the most recent computer games at Full HD goals on the most elevated settings. Since it regularly accomplishes over 60 FPS, the 144 Hz board is all around used. The top of the line GPU additionally does not keep running into any issues with an outer QHD show (2560x1440). Be that as it may, the RTX 2080 Max-Q arrives at its breaking points at 4K goals (3840x2160).


Framework Noise 

The GX701GX gets some analysis for its average fan control. Whenever inactive, the 17-inch scratch pad is extremely tranquil or quiet more often than not. Be that as it may, under burden, the gadget turns out to be awkwardly boisterous. Rather than controlling the RPM powerfully, the fans go somewhere in the range of 35 and 47 dB(A) in 3DMark 06.

49 dB(A) in the gaming test with the Witcher 3 and 51 dB(A) in the pressure test are not generally excellent qualities for a Max-Q scratch pad. Furthermore, Nvidia gives explicit rules regarding how boisterous Max-Q journals can get. As indicated by Asus, a product update that tends to these fan control issues just as the extreme fan commotion is not far off. Be that as it may, this update won't fix the periodic loop cry.


The case temperatures are run of the mill for a thin gaming note pad. During our pressure test (FurMark and Prime95 running for one hour in a row), the temperatures at the highest point of the suspension arrived at 53 °C (127.4 °F) and the base of the frame got up to 50 °C (122 °F). Interior segments additionally did not overheat. The CPU hit a limit of 92 °C (197.6 °F), which is very high however not basic. The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q arrived at just 74 °C (165.2 °F).

At the point when the note pad isn't utilized over an all-inclusive timeframe, the surface temperatures are wonderfully cool. Whenever inert, the surface temperatures change somewhere in the range of 25 and 30 °C (77-86 °F).


The sound quality is truly useful for such a thin journal. In spite of having no subwoofer, the ROG Zephyrus S gives more bass than the MSI GE75, which is right now being inspected. The GX701 highlights two 2.5-watt speakers that help Smart AMP innovation. They are situated to one side and the privilege of the console and are taken cover behind a work. They produce an alright solid, which is burdened by the commonplace shortcomings found in workstation speakers (they sound stifled, tinny and lopsided).

Vitality Consumption 

Because of Nvidia's Optimus innovation, the power draw when inert (19-30 watts) isn't excessively high. In any case, the Razer Blade 15 draws even less control (10-16 watts) when inactive. Under burden, the GX701 devours somewhere in the range of 104 and 203 watts. The included 230-watt control connector ought to experience no difficulty providing the workstation with enough vitality.

Battery Life 

While the GX531 had a 50-Wh battery, the GX701 highlights a 76-Wh battery. This battery is bigger than the battery in the GL704 (66 Wh), however littler than in the Acer Triton (82 Wh), the Razer Blade 15 (80 Wh) and the Gigabyte Aero 15 (94 Wh). The last two scratch pad accomplish the best outcomes in our battery tests. For instance, in our Wi-Fi test, in which the brilliance is set to 150 compact disc/m², the GX701 accomplishes a battery runtime of around 4 hours. Be that as it may, other gaming PCs can keep going for whatever length of time that 6.5 hours. This is the reason the individuals who travel a great deal ought to go with a contending gadget. By and by, the battery life is as yet not so awful for a top of the line note pad.
