Asus ROG Strix G15 G513QR laptop review: AMD and Nvidia combined

RTX 3070 unleashed. The Asus ROG Strix G15 is one of the latest gaming laptops equipped with an RTX 3000 GPU and a Ryzen 5000 CPU. The combination promises high performance that can be used optimally in games with the 300 Hz display. However, what makes the G15 stand out from all other new gaming laptops? You can find out about that and much more in our review.
Marius Schell, 👁 Florian Glaser, Brian Burriston (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Asus's ROG Strix lineup consists of powerful gaming laptops that rank just below the manufacturer's Strix SCAR flagship models. The ROG Strix G15 G513Q reviewed here is the 15-inch model that achieves a remarkable performance thanks to the currently popular combination of an AMD processor and an Nvidia graphics card. We want to find out how big the differences are compared to the predecessor, the Strix G15 G512LW, and whether the gaming laptop can also hold its own against the numerous competing models.

Case - Sophisticated design

The case is made of a blend of aluminum and gray, black, and transparent plastic. The build quality is excellent, and the gap dimensions don't give any reason for criticism. The protruding edge on the back houses some ports and promises better cooling performance, but at the same time, it restricts the opening angle of the hinges. The latter hold the screen firmly in every position and allow a comfortable one-handed opening - naturally, the sturdy base also contributes to this.

Not only does Asus use subtle color contrasts in the design but also angular contours. Together with the multiple RGB LEDs, the ROG Strix G15 is unmistakable as a gaming laptop. However, it still makes an elegant impression with deactivated (or discreet) lighting.

The footprint of the ROG Strix G15 G513 has shrunk a bit compared to its predecessor, making it closer to competing gaming laptops. Although it's the thickest laptop in the comparison, the difference isn't quite as great as the numbers would suggest, since the thickness decreases towards the front.

Connectivity - G15 with sparse connectivity

The port configuration is not exactly generous: With only one USB-C port, which can alternatively be used as a DisplayPort or charging port, there isn't much flexibility. In addition, you also have to do without a webcam and an SD card reader. Thunderbolt is not supported either due to the AMD processor. However, at least the ports are well distributed on the left side and the back with sufficient spacing between them, which is beneficial for right-handers.

Communication

Intel's AX200 WLAN module offers Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) and Bluetooth 5.x support. It achieves good WLAN transfer rates in the test, which are only slightly surpassed by the Razer Blade 15 in comparison. On the other hand, the signal strength is rather average.

Accessories

Except for the power adapter and some documents, there are no extras in the box. Asus offers carrying cases, backpacks, and various peripherals in its online store.

Maintenance

In principle, maintenance is very user-friendly. After loosening 11 cross-head screws, the bottom cover can be loosened on all sides and then removed. However, before you can completely place it aside, you have to carefully disconnect two small ribbon cables, which are responsible for the LED lighting, from the motherboard. Inside, you have direct access to both RAM and M.2 slots as well as the battery.

Warranty

The standard manufacturer's warranty is two years, and it can be extended with options after product registration or, for example, upgraded to include on-site service.

Input devices - Individual key backlighting and large touchpad

Keyboard

Asus uses a keyboard without a numeric keypad, but with extensive RGB lighting in return. Although there would have actually been enough space, the arrow keys are smaller than the rest of the keys. However, the latter are above-average by gaming laptop standards, and we especially liked the consistent key resistance. In addition, there are some multimedia control keys, which makes using the laptop easier. However, the keyboard doesn't come close to a classic mechanical keyboard. In return, the typing noise is relatively quiet.

Touchpad

With an area of 13 x 7.7 cm (~5.1 x 3.0 inches), the touchpad offers a very large surface. The surface is extremely smooth and enables precise pointer control. The integrated mouse buttons aren't as comfortable as their dedicated counterparts, but most users will probably connect an external mouse anyway. Beyond that, the ClickPad supports standard gestures like zooming, scrolling, and triggering right clicks with two fingers.

Display - 300 Hz or WQHD

Asus ROG Strix G15 G513 - Backlight bleeding

Our configuration of the Strix G15 G513 is equipped with a matte Full HD IPS panel with a refresh rate of 300 Hz. Alternatively, a WQHD panel (2560x1440, also matte) at 165 Hz is also available. It's arguable whether this will result in recognizable advantages in terms of sharpness in a display size of only 15.6 inches, although the 300 Hz of the Full HD panel could be regarded in a similarly critical way outside of hectic shooter games. Furthermore, both panels support Adaptive Sync.

Our laptop is roughly in the midfield with a brightness of 288 cd/m² and doesn't resort to PWM for brightness control. We noticed minimal backlight bleeding on the lower left edge of the screen in the test.

The panel of our Strix G15 G513 scores points with a black level of only 0.23 and a contrast ratio of 1,339:1. In comparison, both results are top values and ensure a good reproduction with rich colors and convincing dark scenes. In our configuration, the laptop covers 100% of the sRGB color space and 75.35% of the AdobeRGB color space according to Asus, while the WQHD model can even fully reproduce the larger DCI-P3 color space. In the lab, we were able to measure 90% and 68% for the sRGB and AdobeRGB color spaces on our model, respectively.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 4.8 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
8.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.6 ms rise

The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21103 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Viewing angles are excellent thanks to the IPS technology used, and the screen can, therefore, still be used without issues even when it's viewed from sharp angles.

Performance - Well-equipped Asus laptop

Our test device is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, the laptop version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070, and 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM in dual-channel mode. Potential buyers can alternatively choose models with a GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile GPU. The performance level of the series is very high thanks to the powerful hardware, and there's also enough power available for modern games. Naturally, with these components, the Strix G15 G513 also masters everyday tasks without problems.

Processor

The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is an octa-core processor based on AMD's current Zen 3 architecture. The cores clock at a frequency of 3.3 to 4.6 GHz and support two simultaneous threads each and, therefore, a total of 16 threads. So far, we only have the Asus Zephyrus Duo G15 available as a comparison device with the same CPU; it performed much more consistently and also between 5 to 10% better in the test. Even with the lowest score of 1,970 points, our test device is still far above the Intel competition in the Cinebench loop test, with the latter being at least 20% slower in the same test.

CPU performance is slightly limited on battery power. The Cinebench multi-thread scores are a good 10% lower on battery power than when plugged in.

Graphics card

The laptop version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 is installed in our test device. Since the removal of the Max-Q branding, the TDP is what gives an indication of the GPU's actual performance now. In our model, the TDP is a maximum of 130 watts; this is relatively high, given that the Strix G15 is not a thin-and-light laptop with limited cooling capabilities.

As can be seen in the 3DMark benchmarks, the graphics card deploys its performance very well and places itself at the top in most benchmarks. This is no surprise, because the potential of the RTX 3070 in the MSI GS66 Stealth and the RTX 3080 in the ROG Zephyrus G15 is more limited due to their lower TDP. The fact that the 130-watt RTX 3080 in the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE tends to be slightly faster is also in line with our expectations.

Performance is severely limited on battery power. In a Time Spy run, the Strix G15 only achieves about 50% of the score that is possible when plugged in.

Gaming performance

As expected, gaming performance is excellent. For the most part, the latest titles are smoothly playable at high frame rates on maximum settings. In the test with The Witcher 3, the ROG Strix G15 oddly achieves relatively low results on lower graphics settings, although it comes out on top in the native Full HD resolution on high and Ultra settings.
