Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W, Creator Gaming Laptop 15″ 165Hz 2.5K DCI-P3 RTX 3070 Ti AMD Rembrandt – LaptopSpirit

Our review of the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W

It is a wonderful overall force in play and creation that gaveAsus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W, a creative gamer laptop that lets you play the latest titles thanks to its advanced NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing graphics card, which accelerates multimedia processing. This is also the case with the fast SSD storage that enhances responsiveness, the AMD Rembrandt Octo Core Ryzen 7 processor and the high-performance 16 GB RAM. Equipped with a 15-inch 2.5K IPS anti-reflective DCI-P3 display with much more faithful colors than average, whose 165Hz frequency improves fluidity in games runs on Windows 11 and benefits from an RGB backlit keyboard (but without digital keyboard) or a connection with USB-C and Wi-Fi ax.

Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W against the competition

Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W is currently displayed in promotion in the house of Darty and Fnac. It is positioned as one of the only ones in its category that offers such a powerful graphics card with such a new processor as well as such a high frequency and definition screen with such faithful colors.

If this Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W does not meet all your criteria, you will find other configurations for gaming with a similar budget in our gaming laptop guide. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, it will have the biggest impact on performance.

Chassis, connector, screen of Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W

It has a clear gamer yet original look with its dark design with angular lines and pops of color.

It is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 ventilation grilles.

The connection, which we find mainly on the back, is good, consisting of 2 USB-C (not Thunderbolt, too bad!), Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect externally, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this portable gaming laptop to a TV or monitor, e.g. Ethernet and audio ports or 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.

A backlight solution equips the chiclet keyboard, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in the dark.
However, it is a pity to note the absence of a numeric keypad, while this functionality is standard from 15 inches to facilitate the numbers. It’s all the more unfortunate that Asus doesn’t offer the NumberPad (NumPad) technology instead, which allows the touchpad to be converted into a touchpad when needed.

Gamers will appreciate that the screen uses a latency reduced to 3ms, as well as a frequency of 165Hz, because fluidity is thus enhanced in games compared to the standard 60Hz. Lovers of High Definition content such as videos are not left out because the screen adopts a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD combined with a 16:9 format. As a bonus, the screen will appeal to creators and more generally those who want to achieve much more faithful colors than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, because it uses DCI-P3 and IPS properties. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility than a blank panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ113W may appeal to those looking for a versatile 15-inch laptop that’s powerful for gaming and creation.

As it embeds the advanced NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 Ti-ray tracing, one of the most powerful mobile graphics cards at the moment, you can play newer titles with this creative gaming laptop despite the 2.5K definition of the screen, that requires more calculations from the GPU than Full HD, which induces a lower number of fps.

In practice, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is enabled/disabled automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus prefers the AMD Radeon 680M solution integrated into the processor as much as possible, although its advantages are very modest in comparison, because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing is therefore activated 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 view pictures and videos.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will appeal not only to gamers but also to creators because it speeds up processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

The Radeon 680M is directly integrated into the AMD Rembrandt APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 6800H Octo Core processor here combined with 16GB of RAM to provide overall power capable of satisfying demanding users.

This core supports the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti well and will be of particular interest to creative people because it provides much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4, where the difference is all the more noticeable in CPU-intensive areas. and RAM take advantage of multicore, such as in video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.

On the storage side, there is a 512 GB SSD, a modest capacity similar to what hard drives offer as standard.
But if you need more space, you can of course use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting possibility to achieve fast transfers.

In any case, if its capacity may be too tight for some, the SSD offers several advantages compared to a hard drive, such as silent operation, greater shock resistance, lower energy consumption or even greater speed.

As a result, thanks to the SSD, for example, we can get to online game cards faster, while launching games/software, processing and start/stop happen faster.
More generally, an SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness to use than a simple hard drive.

Finally, in terms of the autonomy of this versatile multimedia creator-gamer laptop, which heats up and hears itself when pushed hard (e.g. games, treatments), you can expect about 6 hours of battery life with light use.

A ventilated rack can be used as needed to maintain temperatures (remember to check the measurements carefully!).
