Ratings by Category

General Use:
4.3
The ASUS ROG Strix G15 offers solid general-use capabilities thanks to its powerful CPU and ample RAM which ensure smooth multitasking and application performance, along with a quality IPS screen which provides clear visuals. However, its portability is hampered by a relatively short battery life and a weight that might not be ideal for frequent travel.
Build Quality:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Engineering & Design:
4.2
The ASUS ROG Strix G15 is equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 processor and 16GB of RAM, providing substantial performance for engineering applications that require heavy computations. Additionally, its Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU and quality IPS display support graphics-intensive tasks such as CAD and rendering with high screen refresh rates, though its portability and battery life are less optimal for on-the-go use.
Keyboard Quality:
4.2
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Portability:
4.1
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.1
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Operating Noise:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Gaming, 3D & AI:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Gaming and 3D Score strongly emphasizes graphics processing capability as well as general performance, while also taking into account other factors that impact suitability for gaming and 3D work. While performance (especially graphics performance) is the most important factor determining this score, we also give modest weight to screen quality, heat management, keyboard quality, and storage.
Battery Life:
3.8
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.

Marius Schell | February 2021
"The ASUS ROG Strix G15 is a successful high-performance 15-inch laptop. The Asus ROG Strix impresses with an elaborate design and fast hardware. The latter can unleash its potential well in the large 15-inch case and achieve a decent performance boost compared to the previous generation. Especially the stunning 300 Hz display as well as the RTX 3070 and its generous TDP give gamers their money's worth. Asus didn't neglect seemingly small details, either, such as the keyboard and the maintenance options. The ROG Strix G15 offers a lot of pure performance and excellent workmanship in a 15-inch format, but connectivity leaves something to be desired."
