Amazon US Link — ASUS ROG Zephyrus M
Amazon India Link — I’ll add it as soon as the laptop is available on amazon.in
Asus recently launched the Asus Zephyrus M(GM501) and this is all the info you need to know about this laptop–
The overall build of this laptop is very good. The Top is brushed Aluminium and the bottom is made of polycarbon. The webcam is placed on its traditional position. The keyboard is placed traditionally, not like the Asus Zephyrus, which had its keyboard and mouse at the bottom. Its weighs 25kg or 5 and a half pounds. The Dimensions are 38.4cm * 26.1cm * 20mm. It is quite thin thus making it very portable. The back-lighting is nice and is not very bright.
The screen is a 1080p IPS Display with 144hz. The response time is 3 millisecond, thus providing a better screen than some other laptops at same price. The FPS is good but that will be told later in the post. It provides G-Sinc and Nvidia Optimist. At first, the bezels look a bit big but you all will get used to it very soon as they do not really provide any disadvantage.
CPU, GPU and Storage
This laptop packs a i7 8750H 6 core cpu, thus providing good performance in single and multi-core stuff. It has the gtx 1070 with 8 VRAM. It has a 16gb DDR4 at 2666mhz. It also packs a 2×2 802.11ac Wave Gigabit Wifi Chip.
This laptop has a 55 watt hours battery. It provides 3 and a half hours of battery life when run with Nvidia Optimist and 2 and a half hours of battery life when run with G-Sinc. I recommend all of you to carry its charger with you.
It has —
- 4 USB a ports
- 1 Thunderbolt 3 post
- An HDMI 2.0
- A Kesington Lock

This laptop provides very good fps in current famous titles —

- BattleField 1 —- 113 FPS
- Rainbow Six —- 158 FPS
- Overwatch —- 159 FPS
- Fortnite —- 148
While gaming, the thermal output is very nice because of its built, when opened, the lower-back opens up thus providing 30 % more efficient cooling.
Difference between Asus Zephyrus and Asus Zephyrus M
The Asus Zephyrus M is cheaper and quite better than the Asus Zephyrus. First of all the keyboard and mouse placement has been changed to the traditional one in the newer model which is a great news for left handed people and for those also who love the traditional placement. The performance is fairly the same but GTX 1080 mas-q does stand out in many test. The battery life is fairly the same with the older model providing 3 hours of battery life with regular use.
