Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
Asus' ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition delivers big-time performance that matches or outperforms what you'd get from a similar Intel/N Nvidia combo. Even with all that power, it still manages to maintain surprisingly decent battery life. Styling could be a bit much for some, big chin and power brick, no HDMI 2.1, Thunderbolt 4, or webcam.
Reviewers from Anandtech have found the following[***]:
ASUS has partnered with AMD to launch a premium gaming laptop based on AMD's Cezanne and RDNA2 solutions. The ASUS ROG Strix G15 AMD Advantage Edition (G513QY) offers the top-tier experience that AMD customers have been asking for. The 1920x1080 IPS display offers a refresh rate of 300 Hz, and is coupled with AMD's FreeSync variable refresh rate technology.
Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition has a 3.3-GHz AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, an AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPU with 12GB of VRAM, integrated AMD Radeon Graphics and a 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 display. The laptop's panel has a 300Hz refresh rate, which when paired with AMD's FreeSync Premium utility makes for some seriously smooth rendering.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Asus's ROG Strix lineup consists of powerful gaming laptops that rank just below the manufacturer's Strix SCAR flagship models. The protruding edge on the back houses some ports and promises better cooling performance, but at the same time, it restricts the opening angle of the hinges. In everyday use, the laptop responds almost instantaneously to inputs and programs are launched at lightning speed.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Strix G15 is as traditional a gaming laptop as you'll find today. It has an all-black colorway with red accents, both at the back of the laptop, and one that serves as a rubber foot for the laptop – which means you'll only see it when the laptop is upside down. There's also RGB lighting in the keyboard, and all of this lighting can be controlled through the the Asus Armoury Crate app. Like most laptop speakers, they lack bass, so you might want to use headphones if you're listening to music or playing games with a lot of explosions.
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Strix G15 is the first laptop we've tested with one of AMD's RDNA 2 GPUs. The Strix boasts AMD's top-of-the-line AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU. It's not without its flaws, and AMD has no option for 4K gaming at the moment.
