Among the many Asus laptops in the CES 2021, Asus launched two new AMD-powered gaming laptops in the Asus ROG Strix G15 and Strix G17 with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, up to 32GB of RAM, and 2TB of solid-state storage.
the Asus ROG Strix G15 and Strix G17 have indistinguishable features, as their names suggest, the former comes with a 15.6-inch screen and the latter 17.3-inches, with a refresh rate of 300Hz, which will have to settle for FHD, 1920 x 1080 resolution. The WQHD with 2,560 x 1,080 variant has a refresh rate of 165Hz. Both variants have a 3ms response time.
Options for the CPU on the Asus ROG Strix G15 and Strix G17 include the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, Ryzen 7 5800H, Ryzen 5 5600H, and, also, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H. GPU options, on the other hand, are limited, as one only gets to choose between an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3060. Both the Asus ROG Strix G15 and Strix G17 supports up to 32GB of RAM, along with 2TB of storage via an NVMe SSD.
Connectivity options in both the notebooks include three USB Type-A (Gen1) ports, one USB Type-C (Gen2) port which can charge the device and output video as well, one HDMI 2.0b port, and a 3.5mm headphone or mic combo jack.
Both notebooks are available with a 90Wh battery which can be charged at up to 100W via a compatible USB PD charger and, the included power adaptor can charge the notebooks at 240W.
However the Asus ROG Strix G15 and Strix G17 are not that upto the mark versions as compared to that of the more impressive Asus ROG Strix Scar series.
The ROG Strix G15 will be available in sometime, in Q1 2021 from €999 (US$1,215) and the G17 from €1,599 (US$1,945).
