Read our Detailed Review of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G (GA502):
Performance of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G (GA502) Laptop:
As yet another Asus member in the Red Team, the ROG Zephyrus G GA502 features an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H combined with 16GB of RAM, which can be upgraded to a maximum of 32GB. Complementing it is an Nvidia GeForce 1660 Ti graphics card with Max-Q design. There’s a single Intel 512GB PCIe NVMe solid-state drive attached to the laptop along with space for one more PCIe NVMe card, should you choose to upgrade storage.
Everyday performance of the review unit was expectedly good. I was able to run multiple instances of numerous applications such as Chrome, Word, Excel, File Explorer, Adobe Lightroom, Steam, and WhatsApp for PC across more than two virtual desktops without any noticeable signs of lag or stuttering. Switching between these applications too was a smooth experience visually. When, on one occasion, I maintained some sixty tabs in one Chrome window, the laptop felt compelled to reload many of the tabs when they were made active, but that’s understandable given the extreme workload. Exporting hundreds of photos from Adobe Lightroom Classic took almost half the time models like the Asus TUF Gaming FX505DY or FX705DT did.
The review unit fared rather well on CPU and GPU benchmark tests. On PCMark 8’s Conventional Creative test, the Zephyrus G GA502 scored 3783 points, which is in the same neighbourhood as its close competitors, such as Acer Nitro 7 and Lenovo Legion Y530. The more expensive Zephyrus M GU502, however, bags a slightly higher 3952 points on the same test. On 3DMark’s Fire Strike and Time Spy, the Zephyrus G GA502 bagged 9820 and 4242 points respectively. For reference, the Zephyrus M GU502, scored 12340 and 5797 on the same two tests respectively. To sum it up, performance on the Ryzen 7-powered Zephyrus G GA502 is not better than that on the Core i7-powered Zephyrus M GU502 but it comes quite close.
Gaming on the Asus ROG Zephyrus G (GA502) Laptop:
The frame rates clocked by the Asus Zephyrus G GA502 are comparable to those recorded by the slightly older and cheaper TUF Gaming FX705DT, which is equipped with the same Ryzen 7 CPU but an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card and half the RAM. On the review unit, we chose to run our suite of games on native Full HD resolution at High (what we call one notch below the highest Ultra) and Medium (two notches below the highest Ultra) graphics settings with V-Sync disabled.
As of writing this review, the Core i7-powered Zephyrus M GU502 costs Rs 1,42,990. This Ryzen 7-powered Zephyrus G GA502, on the other hand, costs Rs 99,990. If you’re planning to get the cheaper alternative so you can save Rs 43,000, you’ll be happy to note that you won’t be losing out on too much kit. You’ll end up with a (slightly) less powerful CPU and GPU but it won’t make a vast difference to your gaming experience, especially if you’re a casual gamer. The same goes for the display quality.
