ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition gaming laptops — the world’s first with new AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPUs, paired with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPUs. Both laptops bristle with features carefully chosen to unleash the potent performance potential of these components.
ROG Intelligent Cooling pushes the performance of ROG Strix G Advantage Edition laptops to the next level, utilizing cutting-edge techniques to give gamers the sustained power needed to play longer and multitask more. Advantage Edition laptops use liquid metal thermal compound on not only the CPU but also the GPU.
Strix G Advantage Edition laptops allow gamers to choose between a competition-ready 300 Hz / 3 ms FHD display panel or a gorgeous, higher-resolution WQHD 165 Hz / 3 ms screen, both of which complete the AMD synergy with FreeSync Premium technology that ensures ultra-smooth graphics output.
Strix G Advantage Edition gaming laptops are the first to use the all-new AMD Radeon RX 6800M, the flagship chip from the Radeon RX 6000 Mobile Series. These new graphics processors bring next-generation performance and power efficiency to gaming laptops. They’re built on an AMD RDNA 2 architecture that combines ray tracing, computational, and traditional effects to enable more lifelike visuals and deeper immersion.
Part of the latest Ryzen 5000 Series, the powerful Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU is manufactured with the 7nm technology and designed from the ground up to deliver the most immersive gaming experience possible in a laptop. It flexes 8 cores and 16 threads to speed through heavy multitasking and multi-threaded workloads. Advanced cooling helps the CPU run on up to 90 watts of sustained power on its own, and you can push the power limit even with the ROG Armoury Crate utility.
ROG Intelligent Cooling brings out the best in the powerful Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU, lifting peak performance while lowering noise levels. In addition to enabling high clock speeds right out of the box, our sophisticated design has enough thermal headroom to go beyond. The Turbo Operating Mode increases the GPU wattage above stock, and you can push even more power through the processors using the Manual mode in Armoury Crate.
ROG Strix G Advantage Edition laptops let users define their next-gen visual experience with a choice of two exceptional displays framed by super-narrow bezels, both available in 15-inch and 17-inch sizes.
E-sports enthusiasts can choose a picture-perfect pairing with blazing fast 300Hz gaming panels. Tournament-level refresh rates combine with the high-powered Radeon GPU to let players catch every moment of the action and react as fast as their reflexes allow. The 3 ms response time makes fast-paced motion super sharp, producing a cleaner view for accurate target tracking.
FreeSync Premium technology completes the AMD experience on all the display options. It synchronizes the refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate screen tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Combined with high refresh rates, this Adaptive-Sync implementation makes game-play more fluid and immersive, no matter what game is being played.
Despite being more compact than ever, these gaming powerhouses have a full assortment of ports strategically placed for a tidy setup. There are enough ports at the back to power a multi-monitor desktop with all the cables neatly out of the way, including the main power jack, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, USB Type-A, and DisplayPort enabled USB-C.
Two more USB ports await peripherals on the left side along with an audio jack for a headset, keeping additional cables out of the way of right-handed mouse users. WiFi 6 (802.11ax) networking rounds out the package with support for peak wireless interface bandwidth up to 2.4 Gbps on compatible networks, plus smarter traffic management that enables lower latency through higher efficiency. WiFi coverage is strengthened by ROG RangeBoost technology that enhances reception by evaluating the signal strength of four internal antennas and then picking the best pair to use for the location, minimizing dead spots and increasing range by up to 30%.
