    If you want a properly working laptop then I would look far away from the GX501.

    Even asus's garbage offerings are somewhat better than their own GX501.

    Hi guyz , i'm considering this laptop fro Pro Audio use i have 2 questions (sorry if that have been asked before)

    1) Does this laptop allows switching from dedicated GPU to intel one ? (optimus or equivalent)

    2) Does upgrading the SSD is avodiing the waranty ?

    3) i usaully go for HP elitbook /zbook , Dell precion or Lenovo Workstation , but i needed something silent and rugged (the zbook studio is Noisy and the dell im typing on right now is not solid )
    Do you guyz think the build quality of this opne is good ? (used to have msi stuff but the close mecanisam always had issues !! when you cloase them the plastic on lid get loose with time)

    thks

    If you get time, do you mind sending me a dump of the EDID on the screen? I bought one aftermarket and am struggling to get it recognized by the laptop. I'm hoping I can overwrite the EDID(assuming it's not locked).

    Performance isn't bad it's the small dumb engineering choices that add up. The gpu can be oc'd up to and past stock 1080 speeds

    I get a decent 60 fps innshadow of war which in my opinion is very taxing on cpu and gpu

    Audio on this sucks. Look for a computer with a decent dac and soundcard.

    I just need the registry file like here in the video(time 1:25):

    Also, if you could please run this and export the EDID to a binary file: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/monitor_info_view.html

    That should be good enough for me to compare and try some tweaks. Thanks a bunch - I really appreciate it!
