Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH164W against the competition

Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH003W is currently displayed in promotion at Asus France and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category, where it is one of the only ones that offers such a high-frequency screen with such faithful colors with such a powerful and new processor (Rembrandt), but also an SSD with such large capacity.

If this Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH003W does not meet all your criteria, you will find other configurations for gaming with a similar budget on 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 G17 G713RM-KH003W

With its dark design with angular lines and pops of color, this versatile creative and gaming-oriented laptop has an original gamer look.

It is cooled by ROG Intelligent Cooling technology using 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 air vents.

This creative gaming laptop has good connectivity including 2 USB-C (compared to 1 maximum normally), Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, Ethernet and audio ports, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.

The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is handy to better distinguish its keys in the dark.

Thanks to its 360Hz frequency, which is much higher than the standard 60Hz, the screen clearly improves fluidity in games, which gamers will appreciate.
Creators will be pleased that the viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are important and the colorimetry more reliable than average.
The screen uses a Full HD definition associated with a 16:9 format, making it suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy panel, while being more relaxing for the eyes during prolonged use.

Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH003W

The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH003W may be of interest to those who want to acquire a versatile 17-inch laptop that performs well in gaming and creation with newer components.

It contains one of the most powerful mobile processors at the moment, the AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 9 6900HX Rembrandt, which delivers overall power capable of appealing to demanding users, especially when coupled with 16 GB of RAM.

In particular, this core guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5. We strongly feel the difference during work that uses CPU and RAM resources by using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing, something that interests creative people.

And all the more so since the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card accelerates processing under software that utilizes GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

However, the GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing is a dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card that is primarily targeted at gamers as it is capable of running newer games.

In practice, GeForce RTX 3060 is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus gives maximum preference to the Radeon 680M graphics module integrated in the Ryzen 9 Octo Core Rembrandt, while its benefits are very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy.
The GeForce RTX 3060 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 view pictures and videos.

The storage is up to par, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB, which can accommodate more software, games and files, including personal creations.

In addition, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a simple hard drive, such as silent operation, greater shock resistance, lower energy consumption and, above all, greater speed.

In particular, the SSD guarantees a faster arrival on the cards of online games than with a simple hard drive, or even much faster game/software launch, processing and start/stop.
More generally, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.

Finally, on the autonomy side, count on around 5 hours of battery with light use for this large-format versatile multimedia creator-gamer laptop, which in case of heavy stress (e.g. games, treatments) warms up and is heard.
A 17 inch is clearly not by nature the most portable out there, but is comfortable for mainly sedentary use (e.g. at home).

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