If this Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W does not meet all your criteria, you will find other configurations to play with a similar budget in our guide for gaming laptops. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, it will have the biggest impact on performance.

Chassis, connectors, monitor Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W

With its dark design with angular lines and touches of color, this versatile multimedia laptop has a clear gamer and yet original look.

It is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heating pipes and 4 air valves.

This creative laptop gaming PC sees its connectors primarily located on the back. Well, although we regret the absence of the Thunderbolt, it includes 2 USB-C (without Thunderbolt, pity!), Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, e.g. Ethernet and audio ports, but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.

The Chiclet keyboard ignores a numeric keypad, while this functionality is standard from 15 inches. But to compensate for this absence, Asus integrates here its NumberPad technology (NumPad), which makes it possible to turn the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad when needed.
The keyboard can, of course, be backlit, which is convenient for better distinguishing its keys in the dark.

The screen is adorned with a refresh rate of 165Hz, which improves speed in games compared to standard 60Hz, which will interest gamers, especially since the latency here is limited to 3ms. The creators are not left out, as the monitor uses DCI-P3 and IPS specifications, which means that colors are much more faithful than average with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.
The screen is also very suitable for High Definition content such as videos, because it is equipped with a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD, combined with a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.

Performance, autonomy for the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W may interest those who want to equip themselves with a versatile 15-inch laptop that is powerful for gaming and creation, offering newer components.

It is capable of supporting the latest and most resource-intensive 3D games as it integrates the advanced NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing dedicated graphics card. And this even though 2.5K requires more calculations from the GPU than Full HD, which means a lower number of fps.

Depending on the tasks performed, NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the Radeon 680M solution integrated in the processor.

Optimus makes maximum use of the Radeon 680M despite its very modest performance because it uses little energy and therefore promotes autonomy. In this area, expect about 5 hours of battery operation with light use.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is practically enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is considered too heavy for the Radeon 680M. With one or the other, it is of course possible to see pictures and videos.

The Radeon 680M is directly integrated into one of the most powerful processors in this PC at the moment, the AMD Rembrandt APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 9 6900HX Octo Core. It is here combined with 16 GB of RAM to provide total power that is able to satisfy demanding users including players and creators.

This kernel actually supports the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti very well in games. It also guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core and 8GB of DDR4, where the difference is particularly significant when working using CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Creatives will appreciate this versatile multimedia laptop all the more so as it has the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti as it speeds up processing under software that utilizes GPU computing power such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

The storage is intact, entrusted to an SSD, which clearly enhances the reactivity and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can reach online playing cards faster than with a simple hard drive and while launches of games / software, processing and start / stop are much faster.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster, while at the same time being more energy efficient, more shockproof and silent. In addition, the SSD here offers a large capacity of 1 TB, which competes with the disks in this area, enough to install and accommodate several games, software and different and varied files, including why not a personal production.

Finally, keep in mind that this versatile multimedia-creating gaming laptop is tall and heats up when pushed hard (e.g., games, treatments).

To maintain temperatures if necessary, a ventilated support can be used (remember to check the goals carefully!).
