Creative oriented black gaming laptop PC, the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QM-HN106T is capable of running recent games thanks to its high-end GeForce RTX 3060 NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing graphics card which also speeds up processing just like the 16 GB of Powerful AMD Ryzen 9 Cezanne Octo Core RAM and processor. This computer designed for gaming and creating benefits from enhanced responsiveness thanks to its fast, comfortable 1TB SSD storage as well as a 15-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen whose frequency of 144Hz improves fluidity in games, not to mention a chiclet keyboard RGB backlit or even a Wi-Fi ax and USB-C connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QM-HN106T
Rather elegant for a gaming laptop PC which it nevertheless adopts the codes, it is adorned with a black design with angular lines and is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 blades), heat pipes and air vents.
However, it does not have a webcam and to obtain this functionality, you must therefore opt for an external webcam .
The connectivity built into this gamer-oriented and creative laptop PC is good, including wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely, a video output Practical HDMI for easily connecting this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Ethernet and audio ports, 1 USB-C not to mention 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
While the presence of a numeric keypad is standard under laptops whose format is at least 15 inches, this feature is absent here. This is all the more unfortunate for those who regularly enter numbers that Asus does not offer here to compensate for its NumberPad (NumPad) technology to turn the touchpad into a touchscreen numeric keypad.
In any case, of course, we can backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better discern them in the dark, here via an RGB solution per key.
The screen is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz which reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the 60Hz standard, which will interest players. Creatives will deplore the standard colorimetry of the screen, which however has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QM-HN106T
The Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QM-HN106T can appeal to those looking for a versatile 15-inch performance laptop with a gaming and creative focus.
Recent games can run on this computer because it has the dedicated high-end NVIDIA Ampere ray tracing GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card .
This GPU will also be of interest to creatives because it speeds up processing under software using GPU computing power, which is the case for example with Adobe Photoshop / Premiere or Sony Vegas.
NVIDIA Optimus technology assesses graphics needs in real time based on tasks performed. It favors as much as possible operation on the Radeon Vega 8 solution integrated into the AMD processor despite its very modest performance (however superior to that of Intel UHD) because its reduced energy consumption promotes battery life.
In this area, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
Optimus activates the GeForce RTX 3060 to perform graphics processing deemed too heavy for the Vega 8, for example for gaming. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
The Vega 8 is integrated into the AMD processor, an APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 9 5900HX Cezanne Octo Core. Coupled with 16 GB of RAM, it delivers overall power to satisfy demanding users, including gamers and creators.
In particular, this core guarantees much faster processing than a Quad / Hexa Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly noticeable in work requiring CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multicore, such as in video editing, 3D rendering or retouching. photo, something to interest creators.
The latter as well as the players will appreciate to find an on-board SSD storage because it guarantees a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we take advantage of much faster game / software launches, processing and starts / stops, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and silent.
In addition here, we are dealing with a 1 TB SSD, a large capacity that competes without worry with what hard disks offer.
And for those who need even more space in the future, we can add a second SSD via the free M.2 slot.
Finally, when it is strongly pushed (eg games, treatments), this designer-oriented gamer laptop PC heats up and is heard.
