Asus ROG Strix G18 G814JI laptop review: Light and shade with the 18-inch gaming machine

Big, bigger, G18. In 2023, more and more 18-inch laptops are entering the gaming segment. One particular candidate is the ROG Strix G18, which shows up trumps with the latest, high-end components and a speedy display. We take an extensive look at this 18-inch offspring.
Asus ROG Strix G18

ROG Strix, ROG Strix Scar.…it can often be difficult to keep track of Asus' range of products. After having recently reviewed the Strix Scar 18 G834JY with a Core i9-13980HX and GeForce RTX 4090, the manufacturer has now presented us with the considerably cheaper but also less powerful Strix G18 G814JI with a Core i7-13650HX and GeForce RTX 4070. Additional features include 2 x 16 GB DDR5-4800 of dual-channel RAM and a 1 TB NVMe SSD. Regarding the 2560 x 1600 pixel, WQXGA display, Asus has thrown in features and buzzwords such as 240 Hz, 500 nits, 100 % DCI-P3, 3 ms response time, G-Sync and Pantone certification which, incidentally, is not only aimed at gamers but creators too. The device (unavailable at the time of this review) can be had for 2300 dollars. A cheaper option is the RTX 4060-based G814JV. Bringing up the rear is the G814JU which has to make do with a GeForce RTX 4050. However, regardless of which model you are considering, current gaming laptops are very expensive and that is why you should think carefully before deciding which one to buy.

The Strix G18's competitors are primarily other 18-inch gaming laptops such as the Razer Blade 18, the review version of which was equipped with an RTX 4070. Apart from that, the performance difference compared to older graphics cards is particularly interesting. For this reason, the table includes the Gigabyte A7 X1 (RTX 3070 @140 watts), the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ARH7H (RTX 3070 Ti @150 watts), the Alienware x17 R1 (RTX 3080 @165 watts) and the MSI Raider GE77 HX 12UHS (RTX 3080 Ti @175 watts), all of which - the same as the Strix G18 (175 watts) - are specified with a high TGP.

Case

The case's design borrows from the Strix Scar 18, whereby the "normal“ Strix G18 has to do without the partially transparent surface. The robust lid consists of metal and looks very unobtrusive, and, with the exception of the ROG logo and narrow stripes, many design elements can be found on the plastic base unit. From a visual point of view, even on the case's base, which normally never sees the light of day, the manufacturer has visually speaking, gone a bit wild. However, it would have been better if more resources were poured into the build quality. In some parts such as the arrow key area, the base unit flexes tangibly, at least when a lot of pressure is applied. On top of that, the case is quickly prone to rattling which negatively affects the device's premium feel - especially considering the price.

Otherwise, no criticism can be levelled at the chassis. The finish is unassuming and the hinges also do a good job, even though the maximum opening angle could be somewhat greater. In order to appeal to the gaming audience, Asus hasn't just limited itself to an RGB keyboard but has also treated the case front with a smart-looking LED light bar (see photo gallery).

Of course, as an 18-inch laptop, the Strix G18 comes across as rather bulky, but the display's frame is pleasingly slim thanks to the slim bezel design and 16:10 format. Nevertheless, in comparison to the Razer Blade 18, the Asus machine is deeper and, in addition, roughly 1 cm thicker. However, when it comes to weight, the competition isn't much better: 3 kg isn't easy to lug around.

Ports

If you disregard the absent card reader, the selection of ports is impressive. Starting with the left-hand side, you can find the power supply socket, an RJ45 port, an HDMI 2.1 out, a combined audio jack, and two USB-C ports (1x USB 3.2 Gen2, 1x USB 4) including Power Delivery and DisplayPort support. On the right side, we have two classic type-A ports which are designed according to the 3.2-Gen2 standard. As the ports are located in the middle area of the side surfaces, this can lead to restricted movement when connected to an external mouse.

Left side: Power supply, RJ45-LAN, HDMI 2.1, Thunderbolt 4 (incl. DisplayPort), USB-C 3.2 Gen2 (incl. DisplayPort, Power Delivery, G-Sync), 3.5 mm combined audio jack.

Communication

The WiFi performance proves itself to be above average. Our standardized WiFi test was carried out one meter from our reference router and the G18 achieved around 1600 Mbit/s when both sending and receiving data. This represents a good result and beats the Razer Blade 18 – despite an identical WiFi module-Modul (Intel AX211) - by more than 100 Mbit.

Webcam

Webcam quality is only good enough for a mid-table placing. Although image sharpness is a little better than some competitors, it doesn't really manage to impress (the same applies to color space).

Accessories

In addition to a few information booklets, the device comes with a 650 gram, 280-watt power supply unit, measuring 18 x 8 x 2.5 cm in size.

Maintenance

As usual, a number of crosshead screws have to be removed and the base plate has to be levered out of position, in order to gain access to the device's internals. The latter is somewhat easier than many competitors as the removal of one of the corner screws lifts the case slightly, thereby creating a good opening angle. A glance under the hood reveals an extensive cooling system with multiple, complex heat pipes, two large fans and one small fan (Asus also uses liquid metal). In addition, there are two SO-DIMM slots for RAM (occupied) and two M.2 slots for SSDs (1x free). The palm rest area is flanked by a long battery.

Input devices

Keyboard

We have mixed feelings concerning the keyboard. While, for example, arrow keys (unlike many other laptops) are a good size, the numerical keypad keys and the F row could be larger considering the 18-inch format. The layout is unlikely to appeal to everyone. For example, German users have to make do with a single-spaced enter key. Some key combinations, such as Del/Insert, are also rather unfavorable.

That continues with the typing experience. Although this is mostly acceptable - due to the base unit's decent stability -  it could be a little more defined (somewhat mushy feedback), especially in comparison to the kind of mechanical keyboards found in some gaming laptops. Plus points are awarded to the practical special keys and good single-key RGB lighting, which enjoys various modes and multi-level customization.

Asus ROG Strix G18

Touchpad

To a certain extent, the touchpad also suffers from sub-optimum case stability. Similar to the chassis, it is sometimes quite creaky which shouldn't be the case at this price point. Apart from that, the replacement mouse made a top-notch impression. With its smooth surface and generous size (13 x 8.5 cm), inputs such as scrolling through a long series of images are easy to handle, especially as precision is on point.  

Display

One of the biggest highlights of the G18 is the good display. Although the panel doesn't quite manage the 500 nits advertized by Asus - something which is probably linked to the pre-calibration - an average of 420 cd/m² is still good for an IPs panel and allows for occasional outdoor use.

Professional users will be happy about the laptop's color space: According to our measurements, the G18 manages 100 % sRGB, 98 % P3 and 86 % AdobeRGB – all in all, impressive results. There's also hardly any need for criticism in the area of color reproduction. Out-of-the-box, the values are in an ideal range (DeltaE less than 3) thereby ensuring very natural colors.

However, it's not only creators but also gamers who get their money's worth: thanks to the short response time (under 10 ms) the G18 is even well-suited to faster-paced games. We did not detect any display flicker (e.g. PWM).

On the other hand, the review device struggled with screen bleeding, especially in the corners of the panel. However, this is not something that was noticeable in every situation. The contrast (around 1.000:1) and black level (0.47 cd/m²) are also less than perfect with the Blade 18 scoring similarly in this area. By contrast, the viewing angles are pretty good and typical for an IPS panel.

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 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 5 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. » 20 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.7 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. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Depending on the specifications, the Strix G18 can be viewed as a middle-of-the-pack or lower high-end laptop with 32 GB of RAM probably being sufficient for the coming year. In the event of the SSD's storage capacity falling short of requirements, the device can be easily upgraded with a second M.2 drive.

Test conditions

Many parameters can be set in the powerful but also rather cluttered and confusing Armoury Crate. Our measurements were made using the GPU's "Standard“ (active graphics switching) and "Performance“ modes. Strange: Using "Quiet“ or "Turbo“ modes, fan behavior changes but performance in The Witcher 3 test remained unchanged. This would suggest there are problems or an error here.

System Performance

Asus ought to work on the system performance. Similar to the recently reviewed TUF Gaming A16, when opening programs, graphics switching results in annoying freezes which sometimes last for a few seconds. As SSD performance also can't quite keep up with the competition, the PCMark 10 benchmark could only secure last place. The Razer Blade 18 has its nose in front by almost 20 %.

DPC latencies

Regarding latencies, the G18 comfortably manages a mid-table place. Despite the solid result, the LatencyMon tool indicates possible problems during the real-time processing of, for example, audio content. This is something which affects many laptops but is only relevant to specific user groups.

Mass storage

The review configuration is driven by a 1 TB Micron SSD. Although the performance on offer (around 3800 MB/s read & 2300 MB/s write speed in the AS SSD benchmark) is on no account poor, competing SSDs mostly have the edge. Only the Gigabyte A7 X1 is just able to set itself apart from the G18 in this discipline.
