ROG and AMD extend long-time partnership with world’s first laptops using AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPUs, augmented with signature ROG cooling and style
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition gaming laptops — the world’s first with new AMD Radeon™ RX 6800M GPUs, paired with AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX CPUs. Both laptops bristle with features carefully chosen to unleash the potent performance potential of these components.
ROG Intelligent Cooling pushes the performance of ROG Strix G Advantage Edition laptops to the next level, utilizing cutting-edge techniques to give gamers the sustained power needed to play longer and multitask more. Advantage Edition laptops use liquid metal thermal compound on not only the CPU, but also the GPU.
Strix G Advantage Edition laptops allow gamers to choose between a competition-ready 300 Hz / 3 ms FHD display panel or a gorgeous, higher-resolution WQHD 165 Hz / 3 ms screen, both of which complete the AMD synergy with FreeSync Premium technology that ensures ultrasmooth graphics output.
World’s first laptops with AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPU, paired with Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU
Ever since the creation of the first ROG product — the original Crosshair motherboard — ASUS has collaborated closely awith AMD to empower every gamer. ROG Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition gaming laptops take that partnership to new heights. By doubling up on AMD components with high-end Ryzen and Radeon processors, they blitz through competitive play, streaming, entertaining, and everything in between.
Strix G Advantage Edition gaming laptops are the first to use the all-new Radeon RX 6800M, the flagship chip from the Radeon RX 6000 Mobile Series. These new graphics processors bring next-generation performance and power efficiency to gaming laptops. They’re built on an AMD RDNA™ 2 architecture that combines ray tracing, computational, and traditional effects to enable more lifelike visuals and deeper immersion. Part of the latest Ryzen 5000 Series, the powerful Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU is manufactured with cutting-edge 7 nm technology and designed from the ground up to deliver the most immersive gaming experience possible in a laptop. It flexes 8 cores and 16 threads to speed through heavy multitasking and multithreaded workloads. Advanced cooling helps the CPU run on up to 90 watts of sustained power on its own, and you can push the power limit even with the ROG Armoury Crate utility.
ROG Intelligent Cooling innovations level up performance
ROG Intelligent Cooling brings out the best in the powerful Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU, lifting peak performance while lowering noise levels. In addition to enabling high clock speeds right out of the box, our sophisticated design has enough thermal headroom to go beyond. The Turbo Operating Mode increases the GPU wattage above stock, and you can push even more power through the processors using the Manual mode in Armoury Crate.
The cooling upgrades in the ROG Strix G Advantage Edition gaming laptops start with exotic liquid metal thermal compound on both processors, improving heat transfer and lowering temperatures by as much as 14°C. To further amplify airflow, Strix G Advantage Edition laptops use a new version of ROG’s signature self-cleaning cooling system. Dust accumulation on heatsinks and fans slowly compromises cooling over time, so Strix laptops channel particles out of the chassis to ensure reliable long-term performance. Shorter anti-dust tunnels in the latest models clear the way for 15% more airflow while still preventing harmful buildup.
Advanced cooling technology extends to the keyboard, which takes player comfort into careful account. Many laptops can become uncomfortably warm to the touch during prolonged play, so we created a CoolZone design that strategically places vents under the keyboard to reduce surface temperatures. In the Advantage Edition, it’s paired with a new IR sensor that monitors those temperatures in real time, allowing the system to make adjustments to keep the keys below 40°C.
Versatile display options let gamers play the way they want
ROG Strix G Advantage Edition laptops let users define their next-gen visual experience with a choice of two exceptional displays framed by super-narrow bezels, both available in 15-inch and 17-inch sizes.
Esports enthusiasts can choose a picture-perfect pairing with blazing fast 300Hz gaming panels. Tournament-level refresh rates combine with the high-powered Radeon GPU to let players catch every moment of the action and react as fast as their reflexes allow. The 3 ms response time makes fast-paced motion super sharp, producing a cleaner view for accurate target tracking.
FreeSync Premium technology completes the AMD experience on all the display options. It synchronizes the refresh rate with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate screen tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Combined with high refresh rates, this Adaptive-Sync implementation makes gameplay more fluid and immersive, no matter what game is being played.
Ready for anything
Despite being more compact than ever, these gaming powerhouses have a full assortment of ports strategically placed for a tidy setup. There are enough ports at the back to power a multi-monitor desktop with all the cables neatly out of the way, including the main power jack, HDMI®, gigabit Ethernet, USB Type-A, and DisplayPort™-enabled USB-C.
Two more USB ports await peripherals on the left side along with an audio jack for a headset, keeping additional cables out of the way of right-handed mouse users. WiFi 6 (802.11ax) networking rounds out the package with support for peak wireless interface bandwidth up to 2.4 Gbps on compatible networks, plus smarter traffic management that enables lower latency through higher efficiency. WiFi coverage is strengthened by ROG RangeBoost technology that enhances reception by evaluating the signal strength of four internal antennas and then picking the best pair to use for the location, minimizing dead spots and increasing range by up to 30%.
