The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W against the competition
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W is currently appearing in the promotion in Asus France and meets several competitors in its category where it is the only one that offers a powerful and recent processor (Rembrandt).
If this Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W doesn’t meet all your criteria, you can find in 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, this has the biggest impact on performance.
Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W
Cooled by ROG Intelligent Cooling technology through 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 ventilation grilles, it presents an original gamer look with angular lines and touches of color
This creative gaming laptop is equipped with good connectors mostly positioned on the back including at least 2 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and better than Wi-Fi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantee transfers that performed up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged into it.
Of course, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical for better distinguishing them in a dark environment.
The screen is decorated with a frequency of 144Hz which improves fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz, which gamers will appreciate. The screen is also very good at displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As a bonus, since it is anti-reflective, the screen offers better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) while being gentler on the eyes during prolonged use. . Moreover, if the viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are significant thanks to IPS technology, the latter is not high-end and therefore the colorimetry here is classic.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RC-HX010W is for those looking for a versatile, high-performance large-format notebook PC focused on creating and gaming with the latest components.
Demanding users will be delighted with the excellent overall power this creative gaming laptop provides with an AMD Rembrandt Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 6800H processor associated with 16 GB of RAM.
Creatives will enjoy getting faster processing thanks to this core than Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5. The difference is particularly noticeable under work that requires CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multicore, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering.
In addition, multimedia processing is accelerated by the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card under software using GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Photoshop/Premiere.
So creators will appreciate the GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing NVIDIA Ampere, as well as gamers who want to play a lot of titles and are ready to make concessions under the most demanding opus in graphics resources to get of great playability.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3050 is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by Optimus technology. He was called upon to perform graphics processing that was considered too heavy for the Radeon Vega 8, a graphics solution that sits directly on the Ryzen 7 Octo Core Rembrandt.
Like the GeForce RTX 3050, the Radeon Vega 7 allows you to view photos and videos. But it uses less energy which promotes autonomy. Expect about 4 hours of light-duty battery operation in this area.
On the storage side, there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. But an SSD offers some advantages compared to the latter such as greater shock resistance, lower energy consumption, silent operation or higher speed.
As a result, SSD significantly guarantees game/software launch faster than a hard drive, as well as processing and start/stop, or even faster arrival of online game cards.
In general, SSD provides better fluidity and response to usage than a simple hard drive.
Of course, if 512 GB is too tight, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, in case of extreme stress (e.g. treatments, games), this high-performance versatile laptop PC dedicated to gaming and creation will hear and heat up.
Its large format is definitely not the most portable but comfortable for mainly sedentary (eg at home).
To limit the temperature, you can add to this laptop designed to create and play a ventilated support (remember to check the measurements carefully!).
