ASUS ROG STRIX HERO GL503VM Gaming Notebook Review

Gaming Performance

Equipped with an i5 and GTX 1060, the Hero is pretty decent in terms of specifications. However, it’s got some hefty competition on our charts as we’ve tested a lot of i7 CPU and higher spec GPU combinations recently. Please consider the score achieved, not where the system place in relation to other systems, at least to a certain degree.

In Deus Ex, it scored a respectable 84.6 FPS, with a minimum of 52.4 FPS, which is a good score for any system. However, it performed even better in Rise of the Tomb Raider, where it broke the 100 FPS mark, albeit by a tiny margin. Overall, two great scores for our DX12 performance testing.

The good scores continued to roll in with Ghost Recon too, hitting just over 65 FPS, and a very strong 78 FPS in Far Cry Primal. Regardless of what we threw at it, silky smooth gameplay was no issue for the Hero.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
