The ASUS ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition is a gaming laptop with a midrange price, providing robust performance with an AMD Ryzen 9 processor and AMD RX 6800M graphics, which is suitable for intensive gaming as well as 3D rendering and engineering applications. It has 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM to handle most tasks efficiently. The 15.6-inch display offers high refresh rates for smooth visuals, but with a standard 1080p resolution, it sacrifices some sharpness for speed. Notably, it's heavier and thicker than many laptops, making it less portable, and it doesn't have a high portability score. The battery life is decent, lasting around 9 hours of typical usage. Additional features include an Ethernet port, a backlit keyboard with a number pad, and a USB-C port, but it lacks touchscreen functionality and a high-quality webcam. Overall, it's a strong choice for gaming and performance-driven tasks but may not be the best for those who prioritize portability or require high-resolution creative work. Give Feedback

Tom's Hardware

Andrew E. Freedman | August 2022
"The Asus ROG Strix G15, as the first in a line of "AMD Advantage"-branded notebooks, is a statement that yes, you can get a premium AMD gaming notebook. Maybe you can't have it all, but you can get pretty close. The ROG Strix G15's combination of the AMD Ryzen 5900HX and Radeon RX 6800M, as well as other technologies that take advantage of them, make a potent, thin gaming machine. Powerful Dolby Atmos speakers and long battery life when you aren't gaming are nice bonuses."
