A 15.6” gaming laptop with a stunning display equipped with the latest quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor and a dedicated, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 980M GPU. A true gaming powerhouse that delivers highly detailed graphics with even the newest games.

Strix is the newest system in a series of specialized gaming gear known as the Republic of Gamers. Strix embodies ROG’s premier performance, innovative tech, and leading quality, but with its own confident and dynamic attitude. The new system features bold designs and bright colors and possesses the spirit of fierce individualism.

Stunning Visuals

The ROG Strix GL502 features a 15.6-inch, non-glare in-plane switching (IPS) Full HD display for incredibly detailed graphics, accurate colors, and wide 178-degree viewing angles. Up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM and full Microsoft DirectX® 12 support ensure the latest, most graphically intensive games run smoothly, even on their highest settings. NVIDIA G-SYNC™ display technology synchronizes the display’s refresh rate with the GPU, reducing lag, minimizing frame rate stutter, and eliminating visual tearing — all without affecting system performance. All of these advanced display technologies work in concert to provide gamers truly stunning visuals and the best, most entertaining experiences possible.

Powerful, Compact Gaming
The ROG Strix GL502 is an incredibly powerful gaming system with a compact, lightweight design. At just 0.92in high and weighing only 4.85lbs, the ROG Strix GL502 easily fits into a backpack or bag for high- end gaming on the go. Powered by the latest-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and up to 32GB of high-performance 2133MHz DDR4 RAM, the ROG Strix GL502 delivers amazing performance with the latest games. An up to 512GB M.2 NVM Express™ (NVMe) PCIe® x4 SSD together with an up to 2TB HDD provides plenty of storage for large game collections and blazingly fast performance, so gamers spend more time in the action and less time waiting on load screens.

The Strix GL502 contains an exclusive cooling system that utilizes copper heat-pipes and dual fans to cool the CPU and the GPU individually. This maximizes cooling efficiency to keep the system stable during even the longest gaming binges.

This system is designed for gamers

The ROG Strix GL502 has a specially designed chiclet gaming keyboard with red-backlit scissor-switch keys that offer 1.6mm of travel distance for tactile keystrokes. It also features highlighted WASD keys, so gamers can position their hands in the right spot on the keyboard quickly.

Exclusive GameFirst III technology prioritizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming. Gamers can choose from four preset packet priority modes — Optimization, Game, Media Streaming, and File Sharing — ensuring the best networking performance for different types of activities.
