With the advancements in mobile graphics, the 15.6" Republic of Gamers Strix GL502VS Notebook from Asus demonstrates a combination of performance and portability. Its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM offers similar performance to the desktop variant, allowing you to max out a game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. The 15.6" display has an anti-glare coating and a 1920 x 1080 resolution for crisp and clear Full HD content. Furthermore, it's built with NVIDIA G-Sync technology, which syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce tearing, stuttering, and laggy gameplay. Overall, the notebook measures 1.2" thick and weighs roughly 5 pounds, which makes it relatively easy to carry around in a backpack.
Equipped with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, the ROG Strix GL502 can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling a heavier workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. To enhance this system's performance even further, you can replace the preinstalled RAM modules with 16GB versions for a max RAM capacity of 32GB. For storage, it has a 256GB SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm HDD. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. The large capacity of the hard drive, however, makes it ideal for storing photos, videos, and other large format files.
Should you run out of storage space, you can connect external storage devices with its multiple USB ports as well as its multi-format media card reader, which can quickly transfer files between mobile devices. Pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology and free up the USB ports for other devices. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Other integrated features include a webcam, speakers, microphones, a backlit keyboard, and a HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort for connecting external displays. The operating system installed is Windows 10 (64-bit).
