Arguably the very best all-AMD laptop released to date, the 2021 Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition almost pulls out all the stops to offer the most premium AMD laptop experience to date. Leaving almost no performance on the table due to poor design, and sporting AMD’s “Advantage” moniker following their recommended guidelines for a quality and performant experience for consumers, the ROG Strix Advantage Edition features a high-quality 300Hz 15.6″ FHD screen (WQHD is claimed to be offered, but good luck finding one so far), a top-of-the-line (barring the elusive HS series) Ryzen 9 5900HX, the similarly high-end Radeon RX 6800M with 12GB onboard GDDR6 VRAM, 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 3200MHz main memory (upgradable to 32GB total), and a host of ports including USB-C Gen2, ethernet, and more.
The laptop has received some excellent coverage on sites as well as some great YouTube reviews. See the selection below to find out more about this beast of a system.
