Asus ROG Strix G17 G713PI: Gaming laptop impresses in the test with the new Ryzen 9

Ravenous hardware. The ROG Strix G17 with the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX and RTX 4070 is well equipped for current and future games with similarly current and powerful hardware. Together with RGB illumination all around and a 240-Hertz IPS display, it leaves hardly any gaming desires unfulfilled. On the other hand, our test reveals not only some expected weaknesses.

With the ROG Strix G17, Asus presents a gaming laptop that is supposed to make an impression particularly with its processor. And indeed, 16 cores, 32 threads, a huge 64-MB L3 cache, and the Zen4 architecture of the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX at least sound impressive. It turns out that this not only goes for the technical spec sheet, but the CPU also does quite a job in our benchmarks.

You can also select among the three smaller mobile graphics chips of the RTX 4000 series, which all ensure that the 240 Hertz of the otherwise simple 17-inch display are provided with a sufficient number of frames. They also keep the price within acceptable limits, starting in the 2,000 Euro (~$2,123) range for ROG Strix. Aside from the convincing gaming performance and worthy visuals, there are also some smaller savings that don't mar the overall impression and impede on the gaming performance at most minimally.

Our G713PI-LL005W test configuration with 32 GB of RAM, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070, and 1-TB M.2 SSD stands in direct competition to the slightly larger Asus ROG Strix G18 and Razer Blade 18, which are also equipped with the identical Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 and Intel processors. The comparison with the preceding generation of graphics cards should also be interesting. Our benchmarks should show how much it is able to outpace an impressively equipped Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE with the RTX 3080 Ti or an Alienware m17 R5 with the AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT.

Case - Robust and playful ROG Strix

The massive case of the gaming laptop shows an excellent stability. Despite its hefty weight of almost 3 kg (~6.6 lb), we are unable to detect any warping, even though the whole base unit is exclusively made from plastic. In contrast, the large 17.3-inch display is framed in a metal lid. The overall construction appears correspondingly robust, without giving any reason for complaint.

The many large and small accent elements stand out. The lid contains a bright logo that always remains illuminated in white. The bottom also houses a freely configurable RGB bar that can be illuminated together with or independent from the RGB keyboard. In addition, there are letterings and slogans around the case.

The large distance between the display and the back of the case with the fan vents appears well thought-out. When the case is closed, all the status LEDs remain visible and the fans continue to work without any hindrance, while you can continue playing your game using an external monitor and desktop keyboard.

Considering the 17-inch display, the Asus ROG Strix is one of the larger laptops. Compared to the predecessor generation of the ROG Strix Scar 17 SE, the case thickness increased by almost 2 mm (~0.08 in). Despite the attractively slim 5-mm (~0.2 in) display bezels, the large areas for the cooling make it a large laptop. However, the competitors are within a similar size range, and the same goes for the weight of almost 3 kg (~6.6 lb).

Connection Equipment - Nothing special in the gaming laptop

Only what is absolutely necessary and then also with just barely sufficient speed - the connection equipment is very limited. Merely two USB-A connections on the left side allow you to connect a gaming mouse, printer, and so forth. In addition, there is a simple but sufficient audio port for a headset.

Since the rest of the connections are placed in the back, your desk can be kept comfortably clutter free, even though the ROG Strix can rarely get along completely without any wired connections, as we will show below. The two USB-C connections barely reach 10 Gbit/s, which is just barely sufficient to also start games from an external SSD. We would have liked at least one USB port offering twice or even four times the speed. We see a similar picture with the LAN port: While we currently often find 2.5-Gbit ports, Asus only offers 1 Gbit. This is sufficient, but nothing more.

At least there are three video output ports, but only the first USB-C port supports G-Sync. While a gaming laptop doesn't need a large variety of connections, the transfer rates of the few connections that are available could have at least turned out higher.

Communication

Looking at the transfer rates reached by the WLAN module helps us to quickly forget the weak LAN port. The Asus ROG Strix G17 is able to surpass all the competitors here, placing at the top and impressive in our measurements of the 5-GHz range. At least at close distance from the router, you can get wireless transfer rates far higher than 1 Gbit/s. In addition, Wi-Fi 6E is supported, whose large communication range ensures less interference in areas with many different WLAN networks.

With this, it falls within the range of most Intel laptops, while significantly surpassing the AMD competitors with CPUs from the previous generation. For example, the sending and receiving performance of the Alienware m17 R5 is 40% slower.

Webcam

The small camera appears to have an unfortunate placement, since the fingers tend to touch directly on the camera lens when trying to open the laptop. With an HD resolution, the images show a weak resolution, but are still easily recognizable even at low light conditions, even if they appear slightly grainy. While this should be sufficient for simple video calls, if your conversation partner uses Full-HD or higher, the quality differences are immediately apparent.

The microphone turns out significantly better. We did not notice any tinny sounds or audible distortions. Recorded voices sound natural and are registered evenly from various directions and changing distances. These are the best requisites for an in-game chat.

Maintenance

Asus makes it easy to open the gaming laptop. After removing eleven Philips screws, you don't need a lot of force but only a delicate touch to remove the bottom plate.

But be careful: due to the RGB illumination, the bottom plate is connected to the case with two cables. However, the cables are still placed so that you can open the bottom without unplugging them.

The insides of the ROG Strix are well-arranged and especially spacious. The fans can be accessed easily and the battery replaced quickly. There is a free slot to expand the storage, allowing you to insert a new SSD very simply. It is also easy to replace the RAM and WLAN module (hidden underneath the SSD).

Input Devices - A keyboard focused on gaming

The keyboard presents itself as very suitable for gaming. In addition to the full-sized number block and F-keys that are indeed defaulting to their basic functions, the ROG Strix offers five additional keys, which control the performance modes, volume, and microphone. However, you can also configure them with your own macros.

The key stroke of almost 1.5 mm (~0.06 in) makes typing very comfortable. We also like the well-adjusted pressure point. 

The keyboard illumination doesn't leave anything to be desired. From the classic rainbow effect up to connecting individual keys to sensor values, to music played, or to colors on the display, the Aura Creator allows you to program any behavior you can think of, even individually for each key and the six elements on the bottom. With the corresponding accessories, you can also extend this to your whole desktop.

The touchpad is large, and its hidden keys respond accurately and with well-adjusted pressure points. But usually this won't matter much as soon as you connect a mouse.

 

Display - Gaming laptop with a high frame rate

Aside from the high refresh rate and very large color space coverage that covers at least the Display-P3 almost completely, the display of the ROG Strix G17 offers average values. The limited brightness and at most average contrast aren't particularly attractive. However, the competitors are hardly any better here. But if the gaming laptop sits on your desk at home and your surroundings aren't flooded by sunlight, this shouldn't matter much anyways.

On the other hand, the large 17-inch diagonal, extensive color space, QHD resolution, and of course the 240-Hz refresh rate fully show their advantages when gaming. 

With some very dark images, the screen bleeding might become a hindrance. Our test unit is affected by this in the top left corner, and it is visible even without long exposures. However, as soon as the images or scenes are slightly brighter, it is not noticeable anymore.

The color display is very accurate even without an additional calibration. Deviations are hardly noticeable with the bare eye. After a calibration, all the deviations drop below perceptible limits. With this, the display is also suitable for image processing. You can download the corresponding color profile from the link above in the area with the display values.

The short response times that are significantly lower than 10 ms, the lack of PWM flickering, and the large color space make this display very suitable for a gaming laptop.

The color reproduction also gives no reason for complaint. Our measurements of the color reproduction result in an almost perfect 100% sRGB, 98% DCI-P3, and at least 86% AdobeRGB. In addition to correspondingly gorgeous gaming sequences, creators will also get what they need. Only for professional demands on image processing would you need to use a screen with complete AdobeRGB color space 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
8.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.7 ms rise
↘ 4.9 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.4 ms rise
↘ 2.9 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 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 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The relatively low brightness and limited contrast make it almost impossible to use the laptop outdoors. In a sunny spot, even if there is a bit of shade, particularly the colors are hardly recognizable anymore, even if you can still read the text. 

There is only as much viewing angle stability as is necessary for a gaming laptop such as the ROG Strix G17. Since usually you almost always look directly at the display from the front, it should hardly matter that from angles significantly steeper than 45°, any black areas are covered by a gray veil and the colors also appear slightly pale.

Performance - ROG Strix in the upper midrange

The Asus ROG Strix G17 just barely misses a placement in the high-end segment, but this is surely not the fault of the CPU, which is currently one of the most powerful models. Together with the 32 GB of DDR5-RAM in our G713PI-LL005W test unit, this leaves no doubts in the high computing performance. The graphics card, on the other hand, still leaves some room for improvement.

However, the RTX 4070 should still allow you to comfortably play most games, even more complex ones, at the highest detail levels and in full resolution. If you want frame rates that are as high as possible, you are more likely to achieve that in Full-HD resolution. With the models with the RTX 4060 and RTX 4050, you correspondingly have to expect a few more compromises.

Test Conditions

Asus includes a series of power profiles in the ROG Strix G17 that offer adjustments of the system performance as well as emissions for various situations. Using the manual setting options, you can adjust them further or even completely change them.

We performed all our benchmarks using the "Performance" mode. According to Asus, this mode offers a high computing performance, while limiting at least the noise development. For comparison, we also include an additional measurement with the "Turbo" mode in the Cinebench-R15 constant load test, to show the maximum possible performance. However, without using headphones or in high environment temperatures, this mode doesn't recommend itself.

The processor is run with different power limits in almost all situations, but the power consumption is always considerable, although it still remains appropriate for the high computing performance.

Processor

The AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX with the current Zen4 architecture is able to deliver considerable performance values. Its 16 cores and 32 threads alone ensure a large amount of performance reserves, allowing for maximum clock speeds of up to 5.4 GHz. There is also no lack in terms of the cache, and 16 MB of L2 cache and particularly 64 MB of L3 cache ensure minimum load times.

Our performance rating across various CPU benchmarks shows what this means in practice. The Zen4 processor from AMD places on top almost throughout. Only in the tasks that are performed by only a single computing core, the CPUs from Intel remain ahead. In the constant load test with Cinebench R15, the 7945HX in Turbo mode is able to surpass the values of an Intel Core i9-13980HX (also in Turbo mode) by about 20%. In the Cinebench R23, this is at least still 5%. The performance difference to AMD's preceding processor generation with the Zen3 architecture is even more remarkable. The AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX reaches barely half the points, with the Intel Core i9-12950HX not doing much better either.

The power consumption remains at about the same level. With this, AMD was able to achieve a huge increase in the efficiency of its computing cores. You currently can hardly achieve a much higher performance with any mobile processor.

You can find additional performance data and comparisons in our CPU benchmark list.

System Performance

Basically, everything works fast with the Asus ROG Strix. Installing programs, deleting, and easily running several applications in parallel doesn't pose any problems at all for the gaming laptop. There are almost no wait times at all, particularly since the processor operates at a high level throughout.

On the other hand, switching between the internal AMD Radeon 610M and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 doesn't work without any problems. Occasionally, you will see a black screen when starting some program, and that not only while gaming. This is also the case when activating Nvidia Optimus. We also have to note that the dGPU is repeatedly given some tasks, for example while surfing. This unnecessarily increases the power consumption or decreases the runtime during battery operation.

However, we should hope that some additional driver updates will remedy these behaviors. But until then, it is probably advisable to turn off the integrated graphics in mains operation via Armoury Crate. This will improve the user experience, particularly when often switching between programs. A frictionless cooperation between the two graphics chips would have been better.

DPC Latencies

The evaluation of the latencies turns out neither particularly good nor really bad. However, the LatencyMon program warns that there might be some problems with real-time audio processing. But only very few laptops can prevent this anyways.

Currently, Nvidia warns of problems with increased latencies with its drivers. Actually, the driver list of LatencyMon shows just that particular DirectX driver as the main culprit for the less than optimal evaluation. Updating some other drivers might also change the result positively or negatively.

The ROG Strix G17 turns out very good but not quite perfect in the 4K video streaming test. The CPU is only loaded to 4%, and there is only a single dropped frame in the video reproduction.

Storage solution

The SSD turns out a bit weak. Compared to the competitors, the read and write performance is unable to keep up. But at least in the test for the constant stable transfer rates, the result turns out positive, since the speed doesn't have to be throttled due to high temperatures. A negative example here is the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 with M.2 SSD RAID, whose extreme transfer rates drop to the value of a SATA SSD in the long run.

However, in practical use while gaming, rendering, or surfing, the slightly lower performance of the SSD has no noticeable effect.
