Sleek, Strong, and Ultra-Slim
The impressively lightweight form belies heavyweight power. At 18.9mm thin and under 2kg, the Zephyrus S GX502 is 25% thinner and 42% lighter than typical 15" laptops. But it refuses to compromise between work and play, delivering dynamic performance and refined styling that's truly the best of both worlds. Its sleek, reinforced metal chassis makes it resilient against everyday use and wear, while the subtle, soft-touch skin along the palm rest keeps it looking clean and professional for work anywhere.
Strength Without the Weight
Forged from a special magnesium-aluminum alloy, the chassis is machined down to exceptional thinness while maintaining the strength and durability needed for everyday use.
Shaped for Stiffness
Honeycomb reinforcements beneath the palm rest strengthen a highly trafficked area. The die-casted structure resists flexing while adding minimal material and weight.
Soft-touch paint covers the palm rest, minimizing smudges and fingerprints with a thin coating that helps sustain the sleek styling and subtle sparkle through to the end of the day.
Subtle Yet Striking
The streamlined design stuns in its details. Contrasting brush finishes slice across the lid, dovetailing precisely with the strategic cut that frees airflow out the back. Subtle diamond cuts chamfer the exterior edges and dig deeper near the touchpad to let you open the laptop effortlessly with one finger. The ROG logo glows fire red, creating a striking visual contrast against the brushed black metal.
Lightweight Form. Heavyweight Performance.
Fusing the latest 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU with revolutionary GeForce RTX™ 2070 graphics, the ROG Zephyrus S GX502 puts powerhouse performance in a compact package. ROG Boost clocks the GPU up to 1540MHz at 115W in Turbo mode to enable stunning realism, while the CPU offers speed and versatility for serious productivity and content creation. Up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 RAM and 1TB of RAID 0 SSD storage lets you cut through heavy multitasking and enjoy faster load times for every game and app that comes your way.

Four dedicated gaming hotkeys sit isolated above the keyboard, giving you quick access to the volume, mic mute controls, and Armoury Crate. They're positioned on the upper left side, so you can access them instantly without tabbing out or taking your right hand off the mouse. Switch on your mic to strategize with your team or turn up the volume to hear every enemy movement in your vicinity without losing focus on the game.
Intelligent Cooling Improves Your Experience
ROG's Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and system settings to ensure the best experience for the chassis and components, no matter what you're doing. In the Zephyrus S GX502, our innovative Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) opens additional vents to increase airflow by 22%, while the self-cleaning thermal module ejects dust to improve longevity. ROG Armoury Crate software seamlessly switches between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task.
AAS Breathes Deeper
Slim chassis leave limited space for airflow, which can compromise performance for marathon gaming sessions, so our innovative Active Aerodynamic System opens a 7mm vent that helps increase airflow by 22%. n-Blade fans draw cool air in from the expanding intake in the base and from vents perforating the panel above the keyboard. Exhaust is pumped through four outlets in the edges of the chassis, each one shaped to separate warm outflow from the layer of cool air flowing into the AAS.
Comprehensive Cooling Coverage
Snaking beneath the surface sit 6 heatpipes to pull heat away from not only the CPU and GPU, but also the circuitry supplying them with power. Reducing the temperature of these power components helps improve long-term stability and reliability. The CPU and GPU share pipes connected to dual heatsinks at the back, and each chip also has a dedicated pipe to its own heatsink in the flanks. This layout ensures efficient cooling for any workload, including those that light up only one of the two chips.
More Ultrathin Fins
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks in the flanks. Each one is lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm, allowing higher density and lower air resistance than typical fins that are twice as thick. There are 205 heatsink fins totaling 110,000mm2 of surface area, and the ones on the sides are angled slightly toward the back to direct warm air away from your mousing hand.
Self-cleaning Cooling System
Keeping the heatsinks free of debris is critical to maintaining optimal thermal dissipation, so our engineers designed a special anti-dust tunnel that catches and channels particles outside the chassis to prevent them from collecting on the fins. This self-cleaning system helps ensure consistent cooling performance over time, which improves long-term stability and overall reliability.
More Blades Increase Airflow
Slim chassis leave little room for cooling, so we enhance every aspect of the n-Blade fans to maximize airflow. The carefully shaped aluminum intake shrouds use curved edges and raised guides to help the fans draw in more air. Once inside, it's blasted toward the heatsinks by liquid-crystal-polymer blades that are 33% thinner than conventional designs yet still strong enough to spin at high RPMs. The Zephyrus S matches our highest blade density with 83 per fan, improving airflow by up to 15%.
The Right Mode for the Moment
Gaming laptops are versatile enough to tackle a range of tasks, but requirements vary wildly, so Intelligent Cooling adapts accordingly. It automatically switches between operating modes that optimize performance and acoustics for different games and applications. Turbo mode uses the highest fan speed and clocks to sustain maximum speed, Balanced mode adjusts the clocks and cooling to lower noise levels for gaming, and Silent mode runs even quieter for lighter work and entertainment.
Connect to Work or Play
The ROG Zephyrus S GX502 features a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 and Power Delivery, a Type-A port for ultra-fast transfers, and two USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports perfect for your mouse and gamepad. Play or entertain on the big screen with HDMI 2.0 output that supports 4K UHD at up to 60Hz. The 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi provides fast online access for everyday activities, while the Gigabit Ethernet jack offers the lowest latency for multiplayer matches and LAN parties.
ROG RangeBoost technology ensures the strongest, most stable Wi-Fi signal possible, whether you're playing a quick match at a café or finishing up a project on the road. The unique RangeBoost algorithm evaluates the signal of four internal antennas and picks the best pair to use in any given environment, increasing range by up to 30%. With a more reliable connection and fewer dead spots, you have more freedom to play anywhere.
Unified System Tuning and Personalization
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customize Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles.
All the Gear You Need
Elevate your game with a complete set of gear and accessories. Capture Full HD footage at a silky 60 FPS with the pocket-sized ROG GC21 external camera. Navigate smoothly and precisely with the Aura Sync-compatible ROG Gladius II optical gaming mouse. Enhance your in-game audio and voice experience with the Cerberus V1 headset, featuring 60-mm neodymium-magnet drivers for immersive sound. And carry it all with you on the move in a durable 15" ROG-branded backpack.
