ROG Zephyrus M GM501
The ROG Zephyrus M GM501 provides users with gaming-desktop levels of performance in a slim and compact package. At just 17.5mm at its thinnest point, the ROG Zephyrus M is the world’s slimmest gaming laptop powered by a six-core 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8750H processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 graphics. It is also the first such laptop to feature an IPS-level AHVA display with a superfast 144Hz refresh rate and ultra-responsive 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time.
The ROG Zephyrus M GM501 features our patented Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) which first appeared in the original ROG Zephyrus GX501. This trend-leading airflow gap at the bottom of the laptop helps improve airflow and cooling in such a slim device by allowing the bottom panel to be raised when the display is propped open. There are also new, more powerful, 12V fans with new anti-dust chambers ensuring a cooler and cleaner airflow throughout the entire laptop.
A new and exclusive feature, distinguishing the ROG Zephyrus M further, is the ability to allow users to switch GPU modes according to the task at hand. The NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 discrete graphic card offers powerful gaming performance when needed, however using NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology, the discrete graphics card can be switched off, allowing for drastically improved battery life when powerful gaming performance is not needed. The ROG Zephyrus M is able to do this and also offer NVDIA® G-SYNC™ technology when the discrete graphics card is active. Users can take advantage of this feature from the included ROG Gaming Centre which also features a dedicated button above the keyboard.
