Asus' G15 Advantage gaming laptop is powered by AMD's new RX 6800M mobile graphics card. The G15's speakers are pretty punchy, pumping an above average amount of bass. With a built-in Ethernet jack and support for Wi-Fi 6, it should provide a speedy connection.

Pros
  • Excellent gaming performance

  • No webcam

Asus has bundled just about everything you need into its Armoury Crate hub. The Strix G15's top bezel is so slim, there's no room for a webcam. If you're looking to stream on this bad boy, take a trip over to our best external webcam page.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 16:10 display
  • Powerful AMD processor

Cons

The Asus ROG Strix G15 impresses with an elaborate design and fast hardware. The built-in speakers sound exceptionally clear when it comes to mids and highs, but they can't produce a convincing bass. The battery capacity of 90 Wh is relatively high, even though the slimmer MSI GS66 Stealth with its 99.9 Wh battery shows that a little bit more can still be achieved.

Pros
  • High-quality case

Cons
  • High temperatures under load
  • No SD card reader

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QY combines a cutting-edge AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX with the AMD Radeon RX 6800M. The two speakers offer a clear sound when it comes to mids and highs. The lack of Thunderbolt and the single USB-C port, which supports DisplayPort and Power Delivery, don't seem to be up to date anymore.

Pros
  • Powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX
  • Fast 300 Hz display
  • Good battery life
Cons

The Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition offers top-notch performance, price, and a webcam. In that price range, we could find only a single GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop-based gaming laptop. You're basically getting one of the fastest laptops available with a GPU that can run Nvidia's best in conventional gaming.

Pros
  • Best-in-class gaming performance

The Asus ROG Strix G15 is an absolute powerhouse of a gaming laptop. Packed with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, 16GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon RX 6800M. In pretty much every benchmark we throw at this laptop, it passes up Nvidia's GPU. Just like many other Asus gaming laptops over the last year or so, there's no webcam on this laptop.

Pros
  • Gorgeous design

  • Heavy charging adapter

Reviewers from theverge have found the following***:
The Strix G15 Advantage Edition is one of the longest-lasting gaming laptops I've ever tested. An RGB light bar runs under the front edge of the deck, and the keyboard has per-key RGB lighting. Port selection is okay but could be better. The Strix is more of a niche purchase at a sub-$2,000 price point.

Pros
  • Powerful RGB lighting

Cons
  • Mediocre webcam
  • No Thunderbolt 3

The Asus ROG Strix G15 is the first in a line of "AMD Advantage"-branded notebooks. The combination of the AMD Ryzen 5900HX and Radeon RX 6800M make a potent, thin gaming machine. Powerful Dolby Atmos speakers and long battery life when you aren't gaming are nice bonuses.

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513 has a 15.6in IPS panel with a 1080p resolution, 3ms response time and 300Hz refresh rate. It doesn’t have Nvidia G-Sync, but it’s still excellent for gaming: the refresh rate delivers butter-smooth and incredibly quick motion in games. The laptop never became too hot: the underside remained cool enough for on-lap use, no matter the test or power mode.
