The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W against the competition
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W is currently showing in promotion at Baker and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category where it is one of the only ones to offer such a large amount of RAM associated with such a recent and efficient processor and graphics card as well as such a high frequency screen for colors as accurate.
If this Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W does not meet all your criteria, you will find on our gaming laptop guide other configurations to play with a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, it will have the most impact on performance.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W
It sports a clearly gamer design with its dark design with touches of color and angular lines cooled by ROG Intelligent Cooling technology via 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 air outlets.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile multimedia gaming laptop is good, including 2 USB-C (but without Thunderbolt), Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or a monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected.
We can obviously backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better discern them in the dark.
Gamers will particularly appreciate the screen as it clearly enhances responsiveness in games thanks to its reduced latency of 3ms and its high frequency of 360Hz, significantly higher than the standard 60Hz. As a bonus, it displays more faithful colors than the average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its sRGB and IPS specifications. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use. With its 16:9 format and Full HD definition, the screen is also well suited to videos and more generally to High Definition content.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RW-KH096W may be of interest to those who wish to have a powerful versatile 17-inch laptop PC including gaming and creation and equipped with recent components.
The overall power it provides is incomparable to that provided by the vast majority of mobile computers on the market. Because it is built around a large amount of 32 GB RAM associated with a high-end AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Rembrandt Ryzen 9 6900HX processor.
This heart will seduce the most demanding users and especially the creative ones. Because it guarantees much faster processing than 8/16 GB DDR4/5 and a Quad/Hexa Core. We strongly feel the difference in areas that consume RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, for example in video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
Creators will be all the more delighted that the dedicated on-board GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card accelerates multimedia processing under software that uses GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
However, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing primarily targets gamers because it is a high-end NVIDIA Ampere GPU capable of running the latest games that require graphics resources at a good level of detail.
In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus favors the Radeon 680M solution integrated into the Ryzen 9 as much as possible, even though its benefits are very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Radeon 680M. With one or the other, it is of course possible to view photos and videos.
The storage is in keeping because we find an SSD with a comfortable capacity of 1 TB to accommodate multiple files, games and software including why not a personal production, which corresponds to what the vast majority of disks offer. tough on it.
But as a bonus compared to the latter, an SSD offers several advantages such as greater shock resistance, quiet operation, lower energy consumption or even greater speed.
As a result, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can get to the cards of online games faster, while the launches of games/software are much faster, as are the processing and start-ups/stops.
Finally on the autonomy side, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use, which is appreciable for a versatile powerful multimedia creator gaming laptop. Certainly it is not the most easily transportable because it is a 17 inch, but this large format offers the advantage of being particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
In any case, it turns out to be noisy and heats up under heavy stress (eg games, treatments).
If necessary, a ventilated support can be added to this computer to contain the temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
