Deal | Flashy Asus ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop with AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX and Radeon RX6800M receives massive 35% discount
A price tag of under US$1,000 is the sweet spot for many gamers who are in the market for a decent mid-range gaming laptop. However, in some cases it may be wise to exceed this budget-conscious price limit by a slim margin in order to get one's hands on a more future-proof high-end machine with a nicer display. This exact argument could be made for a current deal on the popular Asus ROG Strix G15 gaming laptop at Best Buy.
The large American electronics retailer currently sells the aforementioned Asus ROG Strix G15 with the fast AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX octa-core processor and the well-known AMD Radeon RX 6800M dGPU with 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a high TGP of 145 watts for just US$1,099 including free shipping or store pickup where stock permits. This is the lowest price we have ever seen for this particular configuration of the 15-inch gaming laptop, which features 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 512GB SSD and a decent QHD display with a quick refresh rate of 165 Hz and 100% coverage of the sRGB color space according to the manufacturer. Most notably, this deal is another US$200 cheaper than a very popular deal for the Asus ROG Strix G15 from early September.
We throughly tested a slightly different version of the Asus ROG Strix G15 last year, and we found that this powerful machine has a high CPU and GPU performance and very good build quality. We further liked the gaming laptop's good input devices, the above average battery life as well as the quite flashy RGB lighting. Unfortunately, this AMD configuration of the Asus ROG Strix G15 comes without Thunderbolt connectivity. But due to the steep discount, this gaming laptop is still an excellent choice for AMD fans and all other gamers who do not necessarily need the better raytracing performance of Nvidia's RTX graphics cards.
