Units are expected to ship as early as January 22 while the $1800 GeForce RTX 3070 configuration will come a bit later. Asus is betting big on both AMD and liquid metal to pull itself ahead of the competition this year.

Announced just a week ago, resellers are already gearing up to ship gaming laptops equipped with the next generation of AMD Zen 3 CPUs and Nvidia Ampere GPUs. The latest is the 17.3-inch Asus ROG G17 G713 with the Ryzen 7 5800H CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 Max-P GPU for just under $1500 USD. Note that the 15.6-inch MSI GF65 will ship with this same GPU for a full $500 less albeit with significantly weaker hardware.

When compared to last year's ROG G17 G712, the newer G713 has slightly different ports and external design elements but is otherwise quite similar visually. Internally, however, the upgrades are expected to be significant especially since Asus will be applying liquid metal to aid in cooling the CPU. The configuration comes with 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB NVMe SSD, and a 144 Hz FHD display. A second configuration with the faster GeForce RTX 3070 Max-P, Ryzen 9 5900HX, and 300 Hz FHD display is also available for $300 more.

Expect our full review on the ROG G17 G713 and many other Ampere laptops in the weeks ahead.

  • 17.3-inch 1080p 144 Hz IPS display (45% NTSC only)
  • 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz (2x SODIMM upgradeable)
  • 1 TB NVMe SSD (upgradeable)
  • RJ-45, USB-C w/ PD and DP, 3x USB-A, HDMI 2.0b
  • 2x 4 W speakers
  • 90 Wh battery
  • ~15.6 x 11.1 x 1.1 inches
  • ~6 lbs

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
