I had one and it didn't do great so I went up to the 240hz 3ms screen version.

Yep slower, but even with the maxq, reviews said the thermals on this aren’t that great. Almost on par with the Tuf A15 actually, so you’re better off getting that instead for an extra 100-200.

Thanks, didn't know G15 had different thermal setup.OVOSound wrote: ↑ I dont know about the G14, but for the G15
For the G15 if you look at other reviews that are more thorough, they show that the vents/fans are blocked by a paper that serves no purpose at all besides dust intake maybe. The 2020 G15 which is the model that this thread is for has that issue. They said if you remove the paper it can reduce temperatures a bit, but it voids the warranty.

Where did you get the information on 16gb soldered in US?Dandada wrote: ↑ I had one and it didn't do great so I went up to the 240hz 3ms screen version.
It does quite well.
PSA the Canadian version of the GA502IV-ES76 with the 240hz screen has 8gb ram soldered so can only expand to 24gb unlike the US version that has 16gb soldered and can expand to 32gb.
Both Canada Computers and Memory Express advertise that you can expand to 32gb which is incorrect.
It wasn't enough for me to return the laptop but I was not impressed to find that out when I opened it up.
Memory Express also suppressed my review on their site calling that out.
