Asus ROG Strix G16 G614JZ laptop review: Clear the stage for the RTX 4080

Sweetspot found: The ROG Strix G16 is the third Strix we've reviewed in a still-ripening 2023. Based on recent experience, the choice to downsize to a 16-inch model is a good one. We see that the 4080 fits perfectly between the RTX 4090 and RTX 4070. In the ROG Strix G16, the GeForce graphics card is finally able to show off its capabilities.

ROG, the Republic of Gamers, is Asus' high-end gaming brand. Among them are three product lines: Flow, Zephyrus and Strix, of which only the Strix laptops are classic gaming laptops. Asus further subdivides the Strix line into the ROG Strix and ROG Strix Scar categories. In principle, all ROG Strix laptops are available with similar hardware as the ROG Strix Scar models, but have a somewhat simpler design. Then again, this is also a matter of perspective, since all gaming laptops from the Taiwanese manufacturer are rather flashy. In the meantime, the devices of the ROG Strix G and the Scar series have come a little closer. While the 2022 Scar models were cooled with a vapor chamber, the cooling systems of both series are now almost identical.

Our test device with its Intel Core i7-13980HX and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 is one of the best-equipped devices. In order to keep the powerful hardware at tolerable operating temperatures, Asus has installed a massive cooling system with three fans. Liquid metal also ensures good heat dissipation and long boosts.

16-inch gaming laptops are currently all the rage, so our database has a large number of current-gen gamers with similar specs. We have already reviewed a few laptops from the latest generation of the ROG Strix series. These include the Asus ROG Strix G18 and the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18. Both laptops have different graphics chips, namely the RTX 4070 and RTX 4090, but have similar cooling systems, almost identical motherboards and thus similar power limit values. This results in interesting comparison possibilities between the different Nvidia graphics units.

The Lenovo Legion Pro 7 and the Razer Blade 16 are 16-inch laptops in the same performance class as the ROG Strix G16, although both laptops are likely to be more expensive.

Case - Top design, but the implementation could be improved

The designers of the Asus ROG Strix G16 have left no stone unturned. No component of the laptop is without design- or lettering elements. Each component is also 3D shaped in one way or another. For example, the top of the base is slightly concave towards the edge. The front and parts of the sides are furnished with RGB light strips. The keyboard is also RGB-illuminated and openly highlights the areas most important for gaming with translucent keys. Various shades of gray define the chic case. Asus has even furnished the underside, which is uninteresting in most notebooks, with various design elements, some of which are also intended to help with cooling. Compared to previous models, some ports had to be shifted away from the back of the laptop to make way for cooling, since the heat sink now runs along the entire back of the laptop. This gives the heat sink a total surface area of over 174 mm², giving the gaming notebook a very aggressive look. The 16:10 format screen can be opened up to 130° with one hand. The hinges are quite stiff, but stably hold the 16-inch (approx. 41 cm) display in every conceivable position.

Instead of unbridled design, we would have wished for better quality and workmanship of the case. Excluding the display lid, all parts are made of plastic. Many elements appear excessive and have unsightly gaps, such as the bar above the hinges. The webcam module is the worst affected, which, in addition to larger gaps, protrudes far out when closed. This makes the webcam look as if though it was slapped on as an addition after the case was manufactured. From a distance, the gaming notebook looks high quality, but shows weaknesses upon closer inspection. At the very least, the 16-incher is more stable than its 18-inch counterpart; we found the stability of the base unit of the ROG Strix G18 to be deserving of much criticism. 

All current 16-inch gaming laptops are very similar in terms of size and weight. Almost all models weigh between two and three kilograms without the power supply unit. In the case of our test device, the power supply unit adds almost one kilogram to the scales, so you have to lug around a laptop weighing around 3.3 kilograms. Only the Gigabyte AERO 16 is significantly slimmer than the other 16-inchers in our database.

Equipment - Thunderbolt 4 and fast Wi-Fi 6E

The majority of the ROG Strix G16's ports are concentrated on the left side of the notebook. On the right, there are only two USB ports. The two USB Type-C sockets on the left share their tasks: the rear supports Thunderbolt 4 and the front Power Delivery, while both support DisplayPort. The power supply via USB-C is quite limited. The laptop requires 20 volts of power output and draws a maximum of 100 watts. Hence the full performance of the laptop cannot be accessed via USB-C Power Delivery.

Communication

Intel's Wi-Fi 6E AX211 module ensures fast connections between the local network and the Asus gaming laptop and is thus state of the art. Upload and download connection speeds are slightly above average, but we've seen even stronger results with Intel's WLAN-ax module.

Webcam

Webcam of the Asus ROG Strix G16

Possessing the image quality of a pinhole camera, the 720p webcam of this laptop does not perform well. Only in good lighting are the pictures somewhat usable. Otherwise the noise suppression swallows up all details. Details are also very blurry towards the edges. At least the three microphones next to the webcam deliver fairly good sound.

Security

No fingerprint scanner or other security features are to be found here. Only the security measures of the Intel Core i9, such as TPM 2.0, are available.

Accessories

The gaming laptop does not come with much more than a 330-watt power supply and some paperwork. Asus largely dispenses with plastic for the packaging, only wrapping the laptop in a protective film.

Maintenance

Eleven PH1 screws hold the baseplate of the gaming notebook in place. We recommend working your way from the back of the notebook to the front and loosening the screw on the front right last. This is because it has a locking ring that ensures that part of the cover is lifted and so provides easy access for a plastic opening tool. Several clips hold the lid in place. The tool is used to open the bottom all around. More detailed information on how to open the laptop and which components can be replaced is provided in Asus' maintenance manual.

Inside the laptop we encounter a fairly maintenance-friendly device. We find two RAM slots (both occupied), two M.2 slots (one occupied) and the replaceable WLAN module. The 90Wh battery is also easy to replace, as it is not glued.

Warranty

Asus offers a two-year warranty on the ROG Strix G16 in Europe. This may differ in other regions, so interested buyers should double check before purchase.

Input Devices - Good keyboard, but not mechanical

Keyboard

The ROG Strix G16 is equipped with a chiclet keyboard, which nevertheless provides a pleasant typing feel due to its 1.9 mm key travel and decent haptic feedback. The keyboard design is typical for gaming laptops, with RBG lighting installed. In addition, the keys most important for gaming are highlighted. All buttons have been designed as full-size keys, which means that the arrow keys on the right side are rather cramped. In the heat of the moment, you could easily hit the wrong key here. The laptop itself would have had enough space for shifting the arrow keys down a little. When typing texts, however, you have to get used to the shortened shift key

Above the function keys are five more keys that can be assigned various macros. However, the macro keys are very far from the palm rest. Depending on the size of your hand, they are difficult to reach without changing the position of your hand.

Touchpad

At 13 × 8.5 cm, the gaming notebook's clickpad is pleasantly large and positioned in such a way that it shouldn't interfere with keyboard operation. Thanks to its glass surface, it should retain its silky matte texture for a long time. This has a pleasant feel and good gliding properties. The clickpad itself responds quickly and precisely to all inputs, right up to the corners.

Display - Responsive QHD+ in 16:10 format

Subpixel
Subpixel

The IPS display offers QHD+ resolution in 16:10 format and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. However, the panel does not achieve the advertised response time of 3 ms; in some cases, the value even doubles. The brightness is also not quite as high as the 500 cd/m² that Asus promises in the data sheet. Overall, we still have a solid display with a matte surface and high DisplayP3 color space coverage. No visible illumination errors were detected here.

But there is one thing that may prove a nuisance when gamng. The Asus ROG Strix G16's status LEDs are located directly below the screen, of which the storage device LED blinks quite frequently during gaming and is distracting, especially during action-packed games. For an immersive gaming experience, the only thing that can help is a strip of black tape.

For filmmakers and film lovers, the 97% coverage of the DisplayP3 color space should also be pleasing. The near 100% sRGB color space coverage is usually sufficient for gaming. Only a few games offer the choice of a larger color space. Only in AdobeRGB does the screen weaken somewhat, where the color space, which is important for photographers, only has around 85% coverage.

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
6.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.2 ms rise
↘ 4.2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (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 (22.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.3 ms rise
↘ 2.8 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.5 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19232 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

470 cd/m² with a contrast ratio of 1119:1 is not quite enough for unrestricted use of the matte screen outdoors. A blue sky can reflect on the screen and make reading difficult if you're not looking from the right angle. Fortunately, the screen of the Asus ROG Strix G16 is very viewing angle stable. Viewed from all sides, there are barely any noticeable brightness and color deviations.

Performance - Up to 175 watts for the GeForce RTX 4080

The Asus ROG Strix G16 is available in various configurations. The top configuration consists of an Intel Core i9-13980HX with 32 GB of DDR5 RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080. Our test unit is identical, apart from the 16 GB RAM. Thanks to high TDP and TGP values, there are hardly any limits on gaming. At the highest quality settings, many current titles are rendered on the ROG Strix in the display's native QHD+ resolution at well over 60 FPS.

 
 

Performance Control and Testing Conditions

The performance of the ROG Strix G16 can be controlled via the comprehensive Armory Crate app. In addition to performance, the RGB lighting, the display and other functions are also configured here. Three predefined performance profiles are available, namely Silent, Performance and Turbo, along with settings for the RTX 4080. Depending on the GPU mode, there is a mixed mode, or a choice between the iGPU of the i9 or the Nvidia graphics card as the GPU. Switching takes place via MUX, so the display is always directly connected to the active graphics unit. If desired, users can squeeze out all gaming potential from the notebook in manual mode and adjust a wide variety of settings. Fan curves, TGP, Dynamic Boost, PL1 and PL2 as well as temperature limits can be set. Overclockers will get their money's worth here, even if Asus attempts to curb the system with hard limits. At least the laptop's performance can be adapted to the requirements of some games. Neither the GPU nor the CPU pose any performance bottleneck issues.

The various settings of Armory Crate can change the TGP and TDP values quite a bit. For example, the processor is able to extract 130 watts for long periods in Turbo mode, and around 70 watts in Silent mode. In stress testing with Prime95 and Furmark, the Intel Core i9 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 work with a combined output of around 210 watts in Turbo mode and 95 watts in Silent mode. More precise values can be gleaned from the logs below. A closer look reveals that while the performance values of the hardware in watts are occasionally very far apart depending on the operating mode, the effective clock rates of the processor and graphics chip are not far apart.

On the other hand, we noticed significant differences in the notebook's noise emissions. In Silent mode, the three fans run at around 40 dB(A). Turbo mode is around 51 dB(A). Since the dB scale is logarithmic, this doubles the perceived loudness of the ROG Strix G16. Our measurements and benchmarks were mostly carried out in the standard GPU mode and in Performance mode.

Processor

Raptor Lake is the name of Intel's 13th processor generation, which brought forth the Intel Core i9-13980HX. The high-end CPU is designed for larger notebooks with strong cooling. Thanks to eight P cores and 16 E cores, the i9 has 32 threads. According to HWinfo, the CPU in the Asus gaming notebook operates well above Intel's recommended TDP values. In Turbo mode, up to 130 watts of continuous power is possible.

In Performance mode, the fans repeatedly and noticeably start up quite late in the Cinebench R15 loop. This explains the sharp drop in performance after the first three runs. Shortly afterwards, however, the cooling stabilizes and the processor is able to continue working at a high level. The sharp drop in performance only occurs in this particular benchmark. After each run, Cinebench restarts, giving the processor one to three seconds to recover between runs. However, this can also lead to a delayed reaction of the performance control to the load scenario. In the loop with Cinebench R23, we were unable to elicit a sharp drop in performance. Here the times between the individual runs are somewhat shorter. After two strong runs with over 30,000 points, the ROG Strix G16 remained at around 29,000 points in the CB R23 loop for 10 minutes. Multi-core performance drops by around 30% to around 20,000 points in Battery mode.

Overall, the Intel Core i9 in the ROG Strix G16 is quite strong. The benchmark results here are consistently top level. However, the i9 is no match for the Ryzen 9 in the Asus Zephyrus Duo 16.

Western Digital PC SN560 NVMe SSD

The Western Digital PC SN560 NVMe SSD is not really slow, but it doesn't quite come close to the extremely fast hard drives of several other gaming notebooks in the comparison field. So the SSD has to settle for a place in the midfield. For the performance of the Asus ROG Strix G16, this means only minor performance losses and possibly slightly longer loading times in some games.
