    The all-new Strix GL503 is as sleek in appearance as it is strong in performance. Its understated, black brushed-metal cover conveys an inner focus and sophistication possessed by the most dedicated players — those who know how to keep their calm during even the most ferocious confrontations. In contrast, the deep, rich red of the thermal fin represents the blood let in search of victory, while the bold indentation and hairline-pattern finish on the lid projects Strix GL503 as a piece of modern art.

    The Thermal technology keeps everything cool no matter the workload. PC cooling used to keep temperatures within a specified range to avoid software crashes and prevent damage to the components. Today, staying in the thermal sweet spot can also influence performance by allowing the CPU and GPU to maintain higher Turbo and Boost frequencies.

    Duo Thermal gives each chip its own heatsink and a powerful 12V fan to ensure optimal cooling even when the system is fully loaded. The GL503 has an intelligent thermal design that employs heat pipes and dual fans to automatically adjust the cooling system for optimized CPU and GPU performance. The specially-crafted venting holes above the keyboard and in the bottom of the laptop allow more intake of cool air. The upgraded 12V fans, which spin at higher speeds compared to traditional 5V blades, drive strong airflow to boost cooling efficiency, so you’re free to run the CPU and GPU at full speed without thermal throttling. An additional fan-boost function further increases cooling performance and guarantees total stability.

Support for n-key rollover allows precise recognition of many simultaneous keystrokes. The keyboard also comes with a guaranteed 20 Million presses.
    Aura RGB backlighting is the cherry on top, bringing customizable backlighting that lets you set different colors and effects across four distinct zones using our intuitive Aura Core software.
