Deal | All-AMD Asus ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop with Ryzen 9 5980HX and Radeon RX 6800M back on sale with a US$300 discount
The California-based semiconductor manufacturer AMD is often seen as a underdog in most hardware segments. In the gaming laptop category for example, the majority of manufacturers still rely on Intel processors and Nvidia graphics cards. However, a rare all-AMD gaming laptop made by Asus has now gone on sale and provides fans of the so-called "Team Red" with a great opportunity to pick up a well-performing 15-inch machine.
To be more precise, the reputable US retailer Best Buy currently offers the Asus ROG Strix G15 configuration with the AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX octa-core CPU, 16GB of DDR4 memory as well as the AMD Radeon RX 6800M dGPU with 12GB of VRAM for a discounted sale price of US$1,399 including free shipping or store pickup. This gaming laptop is further equipped with a decent QHD display with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels and a quick refresh rate of 165 Hz, which makes the Asus ROG Strix G15 a good choice for fast-paced shooters like the upcoming Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
In our comprehensive review of a slightly lower-specced Full-HD configuration of the Asus ROG Strix G15, we praised the gaming laptop's high CPU and GPU performance and its very good build quality. We also liked the good input devices and above-average battery life, which amounted to more than 9 hours in our Wi-Fi websurfing test. All in all, the Asus ROG Strix G15 is a well-perfoming gaming laptop with high-end AMD components which provide an impressive price-performance ratio in consideration of the current US$300 discount.
