The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH011W against the competition
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH011W is currently appearing in the promotion in Asus France and offers an interesting configuration/price ratio for its category where it is the only one that offers such a high screen frequency and such faithful colors with such a recent processor ( Rembrandt) and 1 TB SSD storage.
For now we can turn to the less expensive 16-inch Medion Erazer Specialist P10 MD62477.
If this Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH011W 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 G713RM-KH011W
Cooled by ROG Intelligent Cooling technology with 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 air vents, this versatile gaming and creation-oriented laptop boosts the look of the original gamer with a dark design with angular lines, touches of color and connectors positioned slightly on the back.
This creative gaming laptop PC has great connectivity including 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, Ethernet and audio ports, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteed transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 peripheral is plugged into it.
We can clearly backlight the chiclet keyboard keys to make them more recognizable in the dark.
Thanks to its frequency of 360Hz, higher than the standard 60Hz, as well as its reduced latency, the screen clearly improves the fluidity of games, which gamers will appreciate. As a bonus, the screen has large vertical and horizontal viewing angles and reproduces colors more faithfully than usual thanks to its IPS and sRGB characteristics. It is also very good at displaying videos and wider High Definition content due to its 16:9 format and its Full HD definition. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a glossy screen in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes during prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH011W
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713RM-KH011W may be of interest to those looking for a versatile large-format laptop PC that performs well in gaming and creating recent components.
The overall power that this creative gaming laptop provides is able to satisfy demanding users. Because it is built around 16 GB of RAM and an AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 6800H Rembrandt processor.
Creators in particular will be pleased to get, thanks to this core, faster processing than 8 GB DDR4/5 as well as a Quad/Hexa Core. We especially feel the difference under demanding work with RAM and CPU resources that take advantage of multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
In addition, multimedia processing is accelerated by the dedicated GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card under software that takes advantage of the power of GPU computing, such as Adobe Premiere/Photoshop or Sony Vegas, which creative people will appreciate.
However, GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing is a high-end NVIDIA Ampere graphics card that targets above all gamers because thanks to it, you can play recent titles.
In practice, GeForce RTX 3060 ray tracing is activated/deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
Optimus gives the highest preference to the Radeon 680M solution found in the Ryzen 7 Octo Core while its benefits are very modest in comparison because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy. The GeForce RTX 3060 is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Radeon 680M. Of course, it is possible to watch pictures and videos with one or the other, but also to indulge in simple games.
The storage is up to scratch as it is entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that can accommodate a lot of games, software and files.
And which offers several advantages compared to a simple hard disk such as lower energy consumption, silent operation, more shock resistance or higher speed.
In concrete terms, thanks to SSD, for example, we can access online game cards faster than a hard drive and we get faster game/software launch, processing and start/stop.
In general, an SSD provides better fluidity and responsiveness to use than a hard drive.
Finally, regarding the autonomy of this versatile multimedia creator gamer laptop which is audible and heats up under heavy load (eg games, therapy), expect around 5 hours on the battery in light use.
A 17 inch is obviously not the most portable out there, but is comfortable for basic sedentary (eg at home).
To contain temperatures, a ventilated support can be used if necessary (remember to check the measurements carefully!).
