The ROG Strix GL502 gaming laptop features a 15.6-inch, non-glare in-plane switching (IPS) 4K UHD/FHD display for incredibly detailed graphics, accurate colors, and a wide, 178-degree viewing angle. Up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 980M graphics with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM and full Microsoft DirectX® 12 support ensure the latest, most graphically intensive games run smoothly, even on their highest settings. NVIDIA G-SYNC™ display technology* synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU, reducing lag, minimizing frame-rate stutter, and eliminating visual tearing — all without affecting system performance. All of these advanced display technologies work in concert to provide gamers truly stunning visuals and the best, most entertaining experiences possible.
The ROG Strix GL502 is an incredibly powerful gaming system with a compact, lightweight design. Weighing only 2.2kg, ROG Strix GL502 easily fits into a backpack or bag for high-end gaming on the go. Powered by the latest-generation quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor, and up to32GB of high-performance 2133MHz DDR4 RAM, ROG Strix GL502 delivers amazing performance with the latest games. An up to 512GB M.2 NVM Express™ (NVMe) PCIe® x4 SSD together with an up to 2TB HDD provides plenty of storage for large game collections and blazing fast performance, so gamers spend more time in the action and less time waiting on load screens. An exclusive cooling system with copper heat-pipes and dual fans that cool the CPU and GPU independently maximizes cooling efficiency for system stability during even the longest, most intense gaming sessions.
