GL502VMK 302 Bios Update

Just a heads up, there is a new bios update for the GL502VMK that was released on the 13th.

Apparently we are now up to version 302.

Description is vague, 'Optimize system performance.' I'll update and report back if anything crazy happens. lol

For anyone wondering, temperatures seem to be the same as they were on 300 and 301 (at least for me).

i just update now , i will reply but i need to test performance ,

Ok i just tested , its the same as before , nothing happen to control cpu voltage , so it's ran hot like before , i just played Need for speed 2015 and battlefield 1 (all in Ultra settings ) .the temp was 94-98 c below are the image 66013 66014

Yeah that looks about like my results as well.

What I understand when I contacted to a intel support team ,they said kaby lake is so hot chip .its normal for this processor .since we all have same temp in cpu its not the asus problem it just kaby lake .and may be asus need to do something about the bios update to reduce hyperthreding voltage or power .may be limit the voltage .

Other laptops with the same chip don't run this hot, and running so hot that it is thermal throttling and bordering on it's max safe temp is not a good thing.

The people who have drilled holes in the bottom of their chassis have proven that it is indeed a design flaw. Had Asus been a little more liberal with their ventilation (like most other gaming notebook manufacturers are) they would run significantly cooler.

Asus isn't old but why they make this kind of cooling performance or may be they tested before launching product or they never test ? no idia 😕 just wasted 1500 Euro ? so nest time i should suggest to my my all friend and me to avoid buy Asus Products .since they don't care their customer .

In my experience Asus is a great brand, it's half the reason I bought this laptop without bothering to look at reviews/thermals (that and I got a really good deal on it). My old laptop (an Asus G55) has been an amazing machine, and every Asus motherboard and GPU I have had has been rock solid reliable. I have recommended them numerous times to friends and family, and they all have been very happy with them.

It's hard to speculate what exactly happened with this particular line of laptops, but there is no debating the fact that they dropped the ball.

And no, I don't think you wasted 1500 euro, it's a great machine once you get the thermals a bit lower. If you haven't already, check out the thread by Onjax on 502/702 thermals and see if any of those tips work for you. If you can get your temps down from the 90's to the 80's (even if it is mid to high 80's) it will be much better for your laptop, and performance will be better since it will stop throttling. 🙂

Thanks for the info , I already read that.but I hate to do that since undervolting will not save permanent .u need to change everytime u start windows .why they are not doing that things in new bios .so nothing worried about undervolting .why why ?
