The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W against the competition

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W is now available for sale at Asus France and is positioned as one of the few in its category to offer such a high frequency and definition display with such true-to-life colors, with such a recent and efficient processor and graphics card.

If this Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W doesn’t meet all your criteria, you’ll find other configurations to play with on a similar budget in our gaming laptop guide. For the same budget, choose the model with the most powerful graphics card, which has the most impact on performance.

Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W chassis, connectors, screen

With its dark design with angular lines and pops of color, this versatile multimedia laptop has a distinctly gamer yet original look.

It is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 curved blades), liquid metal thermal paste, heat pipes and 4 vents.

This creative gaming laptop PC sees its connectors placed mainly at the back. Well, even if we regret the absence of Thunderbolt, it includes 2 USB-C (without Thunderbolt, too bad!), Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to, for example, a TV or monitor, Ethernet and audio ports, but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) allowing transfers be up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connected to USB 3.0 peripherals.

The chiclet keyboard ignores a numeric keypad while this functionality is standard from 15 inches. However, to make up for this absence, Asus integrates its NumberPad technology (NumPad) here, allowing the touchpad to be transformed into a tactile numeric keypad.
Of course, the keyboard can be illuminated, which is practical for better distinguishing the keys in the dark.

The screen is adorned with a refresh rate of 165 Hz, which improves the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60 Hz, which will interest players, especially since the latency here is limited to 3 ms. The creators aren’t left out, as the display uses DCI-P3 and IPS specifications, meaning colors are much more natural than the average with significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.
The screen is also very suitable for High Definition content such as videos as it is equipped with a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD, combined with a 16:9 format. Because the screen is anti-glare, it also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.

Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W

The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513RW-HQ098W might be of interest to those who want to equip themselves with a versatile 15-inch laptop PC that is powerful in gaming and creation with recent components.

It is capable of supporting the most recent and resource-intensive 3D games as it includes the high-quality NVIDIA Ampere GeForce RTX 3070 Ti ray tracing dedicated graphics card. And this while 2.5K requires more computation from the GPU than Full HD, implying lower fps.

Depending on the tasks performed, NVIDIA Optimus technology switches automatically and in real time between the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the Radeon 680M solution integrated into the processor.

Despite its very modest performance, Optimus makes maximum use of the Radeon 680M because it consumes little energy and thus promotes autonomy. Expect about 5 hours of battery life in this area with light use.

In practice, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Radeon 680M. With one or the other, of course, it is possible to view photos and videos.

The Radeon 680M is directly integrated into one of the most powerful processors currently in this PC, the AMD Rembrandt APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 9 6900HX Octo Core. Here it is coupled with 16GB of RAM to provide overall power capable of satisfying demanding users including gamers and creators.

This core does indeed support the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti very well in games. It also guarantees much faster processing than a Quad/Hexa Core and 8GB DDR4, the difference being especially significant in work that consumes CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.

Creatives will appreciate this versatile multimedia laptop all the more because it comes equipped with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, as it speeds up processing under software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

The storage is okay, entrusted to an SSD which clearly boosts the reactivity and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can reach online game cards faster than with a simple hard drive and while the startup of games/software, processing and start/stops is much faster.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster and at the same time more energy-efficient, more shock-resistant and quieter. In addition, the SSD here offers a large capacity of 1 TB that rivals the drives in this area, enough to install and house multiple games, software and various and varied files, including why not personal production.

Finally, keep in mind that this versatile gaming laptop for multimedia creators is loud and heats up when pressed hard (e.g. games, treatments).

To control temperatures if necessary, a ventilated support can be used (remember to check the dimensions carefully!
