Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W against the competition
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W is currently displayed in promotion at Baker and offers an interesting configuration / price ratio for its category, where it is one of the only to offer such a large amount of RAM associated with such a new and efficient processor and a graphics card as well as such a high frequency screen for colors so accurate .
If this Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W 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 G17 G713RW-KH096W
It has a distinct gamer design with its dark design with touches of color and angular lines cooled by ROG Intelligent Cooling technology via 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 air outlets.
The connectivity options integrated in this versatile multimedia gaming laptop are good, including 2 USB-C (but without the Thunderbolt), Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules (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 or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers that take place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.
Of course, we can backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in the dark.
Players will especially appreciate the screen as it clearly improves the responsiveness of games thanks to its reduced latency of 3ms and its high frequency of 360Hz, significantly higher than standard 60Hz. As a bonus, it displays more faithful colors than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel, while being more relaxing to the eyes with prolonged use. With its 16: 9 format and Full HD definition, the screen is also suitable for videos and more generally for High Definition content.
Performance, autonomy for the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W can be interesting for those who want to have a powerful versatile 17-inch laptop including games and creation and equipped with newer components.
The total power it provides is unmatched by that provided by the vast majority of mobile computers on the market. Because it is built around a large amount of 32 GB RAM connected to an advanced AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Rembrandt Ryzen 9 6900HX processor.
This heart will seduce the most demanding users and especially the creative ones. Because it guarantees much faster processing than 8/16 GB DDR4 / 5 and a Quad / Hexa Core. We strongly notice the difference in areas that use RAM and CPU resources by utilizing multicore, for example in video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
The creators will be all the more pleased that the dedicated built-in GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card accelerates multimedia processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
However, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is primarily aimed at gamers because it is a high-end NVIDIA Ampere GPU capable of running the latest games that require graphics resources at a good level of detail.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus prefers the Radeon 680M solution integrated in the Ryzen 9 as much as possible, although its benefits are very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Radeon 680M. With one or the other, it is of course possible to see pictures and videos.
The storage is in order because we find an SSD with a comfortable capacity of 1 TB to accommodate several files, games and software including why not a personal production, which corresponds to what the vast majority of disks offer.
But as a bonus over the latter, an SSD offers several benefits such as greater shock resistance, quiet operation, lower energy consumption or even greater speed.
As a result, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness during use than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can get to the cards faster in online games, while the launches of games / software are much faster, just as the processing and start-up / stop is.
Finally on the autonomy side, bet on about 7 hours of battery life with ease of use, which is remarkable for a versatile powerful multimedia creator gaming laptop. It is certainly not the most easily transportable because it is a 17 inch, but this large format offers the advantage that it is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
In any case, it turns out to be noisy and heats up under heavy stress (eg, games, treatments).
If necessary, a ventilated support can be added to this computer to maintain the temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
