ASUS Zephyrus S (GX701) Gaming Benchmarks – 17 Games Tested!
You should consider buying. Just quickly before we jump into the benchmark results Ill cover off the specs in my unit. Ive got the GX701GX version here so theres, an Intel, i7 8750H CPU Nvidia, RTX 2080, Max Q, graphics and 24GB of memory running in dual channel.. The GX701 is also available with 2070 or 2060 graphics too, so expect different results with those options.. I was running Windows 10 with the latest Nvidia drivers available and just a reminder were only looking at gaming performance here. If youre new here get subscribed, so you dont miss the full review of the GX701. Battlefield. 5 was tested in campaign mode and not in multiplayer mode as its easier to consistently reproduce the test. Run., The purple bars show the results with ray tracing disabled. While the green bars show RTX on.. The results with RTX off were great. Just able to hit 100 FPS even at ultra and RTX on was mostly playable at high, and ultra too, though, personally for a first person, shooter Id prefer 60 FPS or above. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings on the lowest Possible values, as it doesnt have predefined setting presets. Even maxed. It out was playing perfectly fine without any problems and averaging above 100 FPS. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark, which performs worse than actual game play, making this more of a synthetic test rather than indicative of actual game performance.
. Despite this, these results seem quite a bit higher compared to the other 2060 laptops, I've tested, so far. Far Cry. New Dawn was tested with the built in benchmark as well, and almost 100 FPS was possible at low settings.. I havent tested this game much yet, but at ultra were looking at about 10 FPS more than a 2060 laptop.. Far Cry 5 was also tested with the built in benchmark and the results were good in terms of average FPS for this test and around 20 FPS higher at each setting compared to the newer, Far Cry New Dawn shown, previously. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature And due to a recent game update, the replay Ive used is a fair bit different compared to my previous tests, so these results cant really be compared with my past tests., Even at max settings. Well, above 100 FPS averages were possible. It was running very well.. Overwatch was also performing extremely well and it was tested playing in the practice. Range.. The game has a 300 FPS frame cap, which was able to be hit at low and medium settings., Even maxed out at epic settings, 200 FPS was possible with a high 1 low, as well. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and The results were very nice for a laptop.. I find this game to be more graphically intensive at highest settings. The average frame rate is about 25 above what Ive seen from a 2060 laptop.
PUBG was tested using the replay feature, and the results were excellent for this test with very low settings, giving us a high frame rate capable of taking advantage of the 144Hz display, while Maxed out was still capable of above 100 FPS. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark, and we were seeing some very high frame rates from the GX701, with over 250 FPS averages possible, even with all settings at maximum with almost 100 for the 1 low. Rainbow. Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark and is a game Ive found to benefit from Nvidias new turing architecture.. As a result, very high frame rates were possible in this test, even at ultra, the 1 low was above the 144Hz refresh rate of the laptops. Display. Assassins, Creed Odyssey was another that was tested with the built in benchmark, and I was seeing some nice results for this test with almost 60 FPS possible here at very high settings. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane with an average amount of action Going on and even with all settings at maximum 150 FPS averages were possible. It was running perfectly smoothly with no problems at all. Watch. Dogs 2 is a resource intensive game. However, with our excellent specs here, the results are very good, considering, I think its playable with a solid 30 FPS. There were no problems even playing maxed out at ultra settings. Ghost Recon is another demanding game and was tested using the built in benchmark and most laptops that I test arent able to handle ultra settings in this game.
. The 2080 Max Q seems to break this rule, though, with 60 FPS averages possible in this test, maxed out at ultra settings.. The Witcher 3 was also running very well with hairworks disabled and once again, even ultra settings were capable of reaching above 100 FPS averages with much higher possible at lower settings. Shadow of War was tested with the built in benchmark and is another game that Ive found To benefit from Nvidias new Turing architecture., The results here were also quite impressive. With over 100 FPS averages possible at ultra settings., As weve seen in all 17 of these games tested, there were absolutely no problems getting high frame rates, even with all settings at maximum. However, it does come at a cost. You can find up to date. Pricing linked in the description., The 90 watt 2080 Max Q, graphics, combined with i7 8750H and 24GB of memory running in dual channel, make a powerful combination in this thin gaming machine. If anything, it makes, the 1080p screen seem inadequate. As a 17 inch laptop with these powerful specs. I think it would have made sense to also have a 1440p option available too. Otherwise you could always attach an external display for those higher resolutions..
