Like the greater part of the PCs tried in this class, the GL502VS highlights an Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a GTX 1070 GPU. Where it separates itself, beside the shape factor as of now specified, is in its show. Where most gaming PCs offer a 1080p G-Sync IPS screen, they are for the most part kept down by boards with a 60Hz invigorate rate.
The GL502VS steps things up with a 1080p “IPS-like” matte board with a 120Hz revive rate. To be perfectly honest, a great part of the GTX 1070’s pixel-pushing power is squandered on a 60Hz screen, as it’s more than fit for keeping up framerates well over 80 to 100 FPS at 1080p. With the GL502VS’s 120Hz G-Sync screen, you aren’t compelled to pick between screen tearing and higher than 60 FPS.
Thinking about the comparability of internals, the workstations we tried scored generally close in our benchmarking. Honestly, the contrast between the most astounding and least scores is sufficiently little to be for the most part irrelevant once you get into true use. All things considered, the GL502VS scored in the highest point of the class against correspondingly spec’d, more costly PCs.
As I would like to think, the GL502VS’s case is a tremendous change over Asus’ bigger, more costly G752VS PC, the refreshed adaptation of one of our past most loved PCs. The GL502VS has a more downplayed look that keeps up a touch of the ROG brand’s precise stylish while conditioning down a portion of the more forceful styling—and in a littler bundle to boot. Obviously, the G752VS’s size for the most part originates from it’s extensive back vents, however in my testing the GL502VS’s littler size didn’t confine it thermally in any recognizable way, and it comes in at a considerably more appealing value point.
