ASUS ROG debuts Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition gaming laptops with new Radeon RX 6800M GPUs
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) and AMD have extended their longtime partnership with the unveiling of the ROG Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition Windows 10 gaming laptops—the world’s first laptops using AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPUs, paired with Ryzen 9 5900HX CPUs.
Ever since the creation of the first ROG product — the original Crosshair motherboard — ASUS has collaborated closely with AMD to empower every gamer. These new gaming laptops double up on AMD components with high-end Ryzen and Radeon processors so players can blitz through competitions, streaming, entertaining and everything in between.
Strix G Advantage Edition gaming laptops are the first to use the flagship chip from the Radeon RX 6000 Mobile Series, delivering ample power for silky-smooth graphics in a wide variety of games. These new graphics processors are built on an AMD RDNA 2 architecture that combines ray tracing, computational and traditional effects to enable more lifelike visuals and deeper immersion.
The laptops pack serious gaming power into portable chassis with footprints up to 7% smaller than the previous generation. Larger 90Wh batteries enable long life on the road with up to 12 hours of video playback, while fast charging can get you back to 50% in just 33 minutes. Support for Type-C charging adds the flexibility to run everyday activities like web browsing and streaming videos off a smaller USB-C adapter up to 100W. You can also charge from USB power packs to break free from wall sockets.
ROG Intelligent Cooling pushes performance to give gamers the sustained power needed to play longer and multitask more. To further amplify airflow, these 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 these devices channel particles out of the chassis to ensure reliable long-term performance. Advanced cooling technology extends to the keyboard, with 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 degrees Celsius (104 F).
Gamers can choose between a competition-ready 300Hz/3ms Full HD display panel or a higher-resolution WQHD 165Hz/3ms screen, both of which complete the AMD synergy with FreeSync Premium technology that ensures ultrasmooth graphics output.
