The display has a 165Hz Refresh rate which gives an excellent performance, and it’s a nice display with acceptable viewing angles. The display doesn’t lose color accuracy if you see the display from different angles, the viewing angles on this laptop are not up to the mark, and just fair this laptop.

Performance of CPU and GPU
If we talk about the processor The Asus ROG Strix G15 comes with the new-gen 3 CPU so this model comes with an 8 core Ryzen 9 5900HX. It runs at around 35watts typically but it can be pushed up to 80watts. The performance is really impressive in Cinebench 15 and 20 it easily beats intel’s ultimate i9 10980hk which uses a lot more power and it even pulls ahead of the desktop Core i9 9900k from the MSI gt76 titan and in a single-core test is basically just you know humiliates both. Now, all that raw power doesn’t always translate to performance in every test because if we look at Blender for example it only does a little bit better than the last-gen AMD CPUs and intel’s 8 cores are still very competitive as well.

Build and Design of Asus ROG Strix G15
The Asus ROG Strix G15 does feel very familiar and it looks very much so like a typical rog Laptop. But the chassis is actually new and there are several differences between this one and the older g15 model. The first one is that the new G15 is a bit smaller. It did get a tiny bit thicker as a result but that difference is too small to even notice. It is still a performance-focused gaming laptop so it’s not the thinnest or lightest laptop at all but at 2.3kg it is still light enough to carry it around with you and keep in mind that gives you space for that higher power graphics card and of course for a little bit of RGB as well.
The top cover does have a nice layer of aluminum which looks and feels very nice but do keep in mind that most of the chassis is still made of plastic. The quality is quite good but doesn’t expect a MacBook or a Razer blade metal tank kind of experience.
Now Talk about the keyboard of the Asus ROG Strix G15 has a Chiclet keyboard that looks good and also the keys are easy to use day to day tasks and gaming also. The Asus ROG Strix G15 has a smooth trackpad but if you are a gamer you should use the extra mouse for high experience for smooth gaming and easy to use. The Asus uses a backlit keyboard that uses a different type of color light.
I used the keyboard the last few days and I haven’t found any issues in day-to-day tasks. The performance is impressive while using the keyboard.
If you a laptop with the web so that is not for you. The Asus ROG Strix G15 did not have a webcam. if want to my opinion so that is a downside of the laptop. We are in 2021 where almost all of them are doing their work from and all the meetings and conferences are on video calling but if you did not have any issue with that you can go for the Asus ROG Strix G15.
I/O and Ports or Connections
In the terms of connections, it is pretty much the same as well as before. you will get two 5 gigabit USP ports on the left as well as a headphone jack there is nothing on the right side and on the back, there is the power connection, gigabit ethernet port, HDMI port, USB 3.2 gen 2 type C port, and another 5 gigabit USB type-A port which seems a good amount overall.
The Asus ROG Strix G15 is a fantastic laptop with impressive performance. Many laptops put in shame when it’s come to battery life, but that’s not the case with this laptop. This laptop had a great battery life that keeps up throughout the day, and that’s what we all look at on a laptop, and it doesn’t disappoint you there. The laptop is powerful enough to handle all of your work needs with ease. The laptop is an excellent choice for working professionals, and for students also who are looking for a laptop that lasts throughout the day. I have no issues recommending this laptop to people who need it for handling their productive tasks.
