Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition gaming laptops now available
Under its Republic of Gamers (ROG) division, manufacturer Asus has finally announced the availability of its new ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition gaming laptop, the world’s first gaming laptop equipped with both the new AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPUs and AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processors. Equipped with the best of both worlds, the manufacturer makes this laptop become the pinnacle of performance for gaming.
The ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition was already presented days ago, but it has not been until now that Asus has confirmed its availability, the first in the world to equip the latest technology from AMD in both CPU and GPU to offer the best possible performance.
This is the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition AMD
First of all, Asus wanted to emphasize the advanced cooling system of this gaming laptop; according to the Taiwanese manufacturer, the ROG intelligent cooling raises the performance of this Strix G15 Advantage Edition to the next level by incorporating a liquid metal compound for both the CPU and the GPU, thus ensuring the best heat dissipation. In addition, its heatsinks feature steam chamber technology to improve efficiency and that completely covers all critical components of the system, including its 16-phase VRM set.
Leaving aside its advanced and careful cooling system, there is no doubt that if this laptop stands out for something then, it is for its hardware. For starters, it’s the first in the world to incorporate the new Radeon RX 6800M, based on RDNA 2 architecture and with plenty of power to run all existing triple-A titles smoothly. Asus boasts that, thanks to its cooling system, the graphics reaches 2,600 MHz in Turbo mode.
On the other hand we have the powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900 HXCPU, manufactured with 7 nm lithography and with 8 cores and 16 process threads to accelerate multithreaded workloads. The advanced cooling of this CPU is capable of dissipating up to 90 watts of heat on its own, so they urge users to increase their operating frequency by overclocking using their ROG Armoury Crate software.
Thanks to AMD’s hardware, this gaming laptop incorporates exclusive AMD SmartShift and Smart Access Memory technologies that optimize the joint work of CPUs and GPUs. SmartShift improves performance dynamically by adjusting CPU and GPU power based on workload, so when you’re running a game the system automatically derives resources to the component that needs it the most. According to AMD data, this technology can improve performance by up to 15%.
For its part, Smart Access Memory technology improves data transfer between CPU and GPU so that performance in games is not compromised. Conventional systems only allow the CPU to access a small part of the GPU’s graphics memory, creating bottlenecks, but with this technology and thanks to the PCI-Express interface, the CPU can access all the graphics memory to speed up the computing capacity in games much more.
In addition to the aforementioned, these ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition gaming laptops have different variants in terms of hardware configuration, and can be purchased with up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM of speeds 3,200 MHz and upto 1TB of NVMe SSD storage. All in all, the laptop incorporates an additional M.2 slot that is easy to access so that users can add additional storage if they want. There’s also no shortage of configurable RGB perimeter lighting, WiFi 6, 2.5G LAN and everything you might need on a laptop designed for gaming.
Screen and sound optimized for gaming
The Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition laptop also boasts one of the best gaming screens they’ve ever integrated into a gaming laptop. It is a 15.4-inch LED-IPS display with ultra-thin bezels that carries a WQHD panel (2560 x 1440 pixels) with a refresh rate of 165 Hz and just 3 ms of response time, a screen that of course has AMD FreeSync Premium variable refresh rate technology for the best smooth gaming experience.
Despite the fact that the screen is so extremely fast and with FreeSync Premium, that does not mean that it does not have an excellent color reproduction. According to Asus it has complete coverage of the DCI-P3 color space,so that we can see the games with more vivid colors and rich in nuances than with conventional laptop screens.
For its part, the equipment incorporates two Smart Amp stereo speakers that fire the sound directly to where the user is, something that is complemented by Dolby Atmos technology to create a multidimensional sound environment rich in detail and with virtual surround sound 5.1.2 for headphones.
On top of that, the equipment also has bidirectional noise cancellation through AI that is able to eliminate up to 95% of the background noise of the audio input and output, significantly improving the listening experience but also the ability to communicate, something vital in online games. Developed using a deep neural network, this algorithm is capable of being used with any microphone (and not just the built-in one) and configured independently by application, so that users can filter chats in real time.
