More than two months of waiting have passed until we reach this moment, but the wait seems to have been justified - now, the first gaming computer based on AMD's most advanced products for the category is available for official purchase courtesy of Asus, with capabilities and a price that can certainly compete Not easy for more popular and common combinations between Intel andNVIDIA Which are already sold in stores.
The ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition is based on a 15.6-inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution and a very fast refresh rate of 300 Hz, including support for FreeSync technology, a Ryzen 9 5900HX octa-core processor, DDR4 memories at a base speed of 3,200MT / s in volumes between 16GB For 64GB, NVMe storage with a volume of between 512GB and 4 terabytes, including an additional free M.2 slot for independent expansion, 6-channel Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, a Windows 10 system in the Pro version, a fairly powerful audio array with a pair of speakers With a power of 4 watts each, a built-in 90 watt-hour battery with a fast 280-watt charge for returning up to 50 percent of the total capacity within half an hour (there is also support for charging 100 watts based on USB-PD chargers) - and a card Radeon RX 6800M with 12GB of memory GDDR6 And a 145-watt power envelope (or up to 160 watts with SmartShift technology enabled) that is the star of the lineup in its first actual public appearance.
The new laptop is far from being considered compact in relation to its screen category, with a weight of about 2.4 kilograms, not including the external power supply and a thickness of a little over 27 millimeters, which is tens of percent larger than the most compact gaming models available today. The main and for the graphics card, along with a respectable cooling system that allows them to reach this potential of theirs, allows to get performance that competes well with those of large and advanced laptops with GeForce RTX 3070 cards and even those with GeForce RTX 3080 cards certainly from the cases. This is something we have not seen fromAMD In the mobile field for many years, so there is definitely a reason to welcome and rejoice in renewed competition at the highest levels of this prestigious world of products.
Along with the performance that lives up to expectations, the second big news is probably the competitive price at which they can be obtained: on Amazon USA, Israeli consumers can order for themselves now (through a third-party vendor named Happy Ranger, but with Amazon's own shell and logistics responsibility) The Strix G15 Advantage Edition equipped with 2 terabytes of internal storage and 32 GB of dynamic memory At a base price of $ 2,328.9, which becomes $ 2,879.99 after additions of shipping and VAT, that is, between NIS 9,290 and NIS 9,495 depending on the conversion fees you receive from your credit operator or Amazon directly.
It's not a cheap business at all on the one hand, but cheaper than most models.RTX 3080 mobiles in stores on the other hand, especially if you also take into account the volumes of memories that come with the product.
