Asus’s new Strix GL502 gaming notebook has independent CPU and GPU cooling


Asus has added Strix GL502 to its line of Republic of Gamers (ROG) laptops.

The 15.6-inch device comes with an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980GPU options.

The non-glare IPS FHD display is powered by 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and Nvidia G-Sync technology. The device comes in at 0.92 in thick and weighs 4.85 lbs, and has options for a 512GB M.2 NVM Express PCIe x4 SSD and up to 2TB of HDD.

The Strix GL502’s cooling system is a bit different in that it uses copper heat-pipes and dual fans to cool the CPU and GPU independently. According to Asus, this is meant to maximize cooling efficiency and system stability during long sessions.

It wouldn’t be a gaming laptop without a specialty keyboard, and the GL502’s backlit scissor-switch keys feature 1.6mm of travel distance and highlighted WASD keys.

The device will be available starting mid-June from select resellers.
