A WORK OF ART, IN BLACK AND RED
Sleek, strong, and sophisticated — Strix GL503 is a work of art. Its deep-red thermal fins reflect intensity and the blood spilled in battle. In contrast, its understated black lid features an exquisite brushed-aluminum finish and a glowing-red ROG logo to convey the inner calm and focus of the most dedicated players, even under the most trying of circumstances. Slim and lightweight, Strix GL503 is perfectly suited for gaming on the go.
DESKTOP-GRADE GAMING FIREPOWER TO GO

ADVANCED ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM
Strix GL503 has a specially-designed cooling system that improves airflow and system durability to cope with the demands of intense gaming sessions. It automatically adjusts fan speed to ensure system temperatures stay at the optimum operating window for the CPU and GPU. Intake vents situated above the keyboard and under the chassis improve airflow into the system, while the patented trapezoid-cut lid design allows hot exhaust to flow freely out of the air tunnels at the rear. The two upgraded 12V fans spin much faster than regular 5V fans, boosting airflow and increasing air pressure to improve cooling efficiency. In addition, the patented Anti-Dust Cooling (ADC) system expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability.
PGRADED 12V FANS
Compared to regular 5V fans, the two powerful 12V fans found in Strix GL503 spin 20% faster, improve airflow by up to 42.5%, and increase air pressure by up to 92% for a more effective cooling system.
ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM
The ADC system is a patented centrifugal fan module with two anti-dust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, effectively pushing it away from the axis of rotation. Dust and other particles in the fan module are blown along the fan walls, and eventually expelled out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prevents buildup on the heatsink fins. Dust accumulation on the heatsink often result in compromised cooling performance. The ADC prolongs the lifespan and increases the stability of the system. Fan noise also decreases since the fans aren’t overworked.
The special copper-alloy cooling fins used in Strix GL503 are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more fins to be used in the cooling module; this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 16%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.
When opened, normal laptop lids block airflow out the back which could, in some instances, cause overheating. The innovative and patented trapezoid-cut avoids this problem, and improves thermal efficiency by up to 27% over traditional designs.
While the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures, you can select different modes to suit the situation at hand. Overboost is the most aggressive setting, with the fastest fan speed for the cooling required to fully exploit the power of Strix GL503. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet. A single press of the function key (Fn+F5) allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan performance to control noise levels and power consumption; it can also be accessed through ROG Gaming Center.
MULTIPLE COMPONENT COOLING
The unique heat-pipe design cools not only the CPU and GPU independently to avoid thermal throttling, but also keeps chipset power components below 80°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.
GAMER-CENTRIC KEYBOARD WITH AURA SYNC
Strix GL503 has a keyboard optimized for gaming — it features a highlighted WASD key group, 0.25mm keycap curves, and N-key rollover. It also has Aura Sync technology which gives you the freedom to customize and sync up light effects with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. Choose from a full spectrum of colors and seven different lighting modes via the Aura control panel.
STUNNING GAMING VISUALS
Explore vast gaming worlds on a 120Hz wide-view display. The high refresh rate decimates lag for smoother gameplay, while 94% NTSC color gamut provides a wider color range that’s almost equal to 130% sRGB in terms of color space covered. And with wide-view technology, you’ll enjoy sharp, clear imagery with accurate and consistent color, even when you’re viewing it from extreme positions. It’s perfect for all gaming genres.
OPTMIZED SOUND WITH SMART-AMP TECHNOLOGY
Strix GL503 delivers awesome sound to go with its lifelike visuals, with in-game audio adjustments on the fly. Smart-amplifier technology monitors the audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass. Sonic Studio III suite provides high quality in-game audio, as well as improved streaming and audio recording for perfect voice pickup and noise reduction.
INSTANT MEMORY UPGRADES
Pushing Strix GL503 further is easy. A slide-off panel on the underside of the laptop is fastened by just a single screw, so memory upgrades can be done in seconds!
Strix GL503 provides quick access to your most frequently-used I/O ports with minimum interference. It features one USB 2.0, three USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, and one USB 3.1 Gen 2 with a Type-C™ (USB-C™) connector. In addition, it also has HDMI 1.4 and Mini DisplayPort 1.2 so connecting the latest, greatest gaming peripherals is a cinch.
FASTER WI-FI WITH A WIDER RANGE
Strix GL503 features the latest 802.11ac 2x2 Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard, with two antennas each for both transmission and reception, for speeds up to 1.7Gbps. That’s twice the speed of 802.11ac 2x2 and twelve times faster than 802.11b/g/n! The 2x2 wireless configuration provides up to 30% more coverage than the 1x1 configuration.
A more reliable and robust wireless connection ensures better gaming experiences. ROG First also ensures ROG routers and ASUS RT-series routers prioritize packets according to the GameFirst V settings in your ROG laptop for faster, more stable connections. Strix GL503 even has low-energy Bluetooth® 4.1, enabling you to game longer and more reliably with your Bluetooth peripherals!
ARMED WITH ROG GAMING CENTER
Summon ROG Gaming Center with a single press of a hotkey to see a comprehensive dashboard with loads of useful information, including both CPU and GPU frequencies and temperatures — and use the control panel to make adjustments in real time. ROG GameFirst V, Sonic Studio III, GameVisual, Aura Core, as well as XSplit Gamecaster, can also be accessed through ROG Gaming Center. ROG Gaming Center is on the ROG app on Android or iOS, so you can keep all controls close at hand.
ROG GameFirst V technology maximizes throughput for your game! It prioritizes network packets for increased bandwidth for online gaming and streaming. Auto mode prioritizes all of your applications based on a choice of four preset scenarios; while Manual mode lets you categorize programs and prioritize them accordingly. In addition, ROG First ensures ROG routers and ASUS RT-series routers prioritize packets according to the GameFirst V settings in your ROG laptop.
ROG GameVisual software provides six preset modes for different game genres, plus loads of exciting multimedia and customization settings. ROG software engineers have fine-tuned each setting to deliver exceptional visuals that perfectly complement each specific game genre. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhances visibility in dark environments — so you’ll see details denied to your enemies, for a clearer shot with every pull of the trigger.
Sonic Studio III
Sonic Studio III is a useful suite of tools to support all of your in-game audio needs. A control panel gives you access to five different audio modes, and even lets you manually adjust settings. This software suite also provides noise cancelation, voice-volume stabilization, and echo cancellation during recording.
Sonic Radar III
The Sonic Radar III audio engine processes sounds more accurately than ever, so you’re always aware of what’s going on around you. Use the on-screen arrow to hone your enemy-pinpointing skills, and enjoy visualized audio detail that eliminates the need to crank up the volume – the perfect tool for practice rounds and tuning untrained ears.
With Aura Core, you’re free to customize your keyboard’s RGB lighting to suit your gaming style, with an intuitive control panel offering easy command over a spectrum of brilliant colors and seven preset lighting modes. You can activate Aura Sync via Aura Core as well.
