Asus has revealed the ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition, a 15.6-inch laptop that combines two of AMD’s most powerful laptop components. The Asus G15 Advantage Edition is available with a Ryzen 9 5900HX and the latter being capable of operating up to 2300 MHz.
ASUS announced the ROG G15, one of two Advantage Edition laptops the company unveiled recently. The other is the ROG Strix G17 Advantage Edition. The Asus – ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition is equipped with a Ryzen 9 5900HX type 45W APU processor from AMD’s Cezanne family. The Ryzen 9 5900HX site has 8 cores, 16 threads and can go up to 4.6 GHz.
Arguably, the AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900x isn’t the most interesting component of the G15 Advantage Edition. In our opinion, this role falls to the AMD Radeon RX 6800M. According to Asus, the G15 Advantage Edition can keep the RX 6800M at 2300 MHz, which is much higher than AMD’s RDNA 1.0 mobile GPUs. Details on the RX 6800M, however, remain scarce for now. The Asus G15 Advantage Edition also supports AMD’s SmartShift and Smart Access Memory functions.
In addition, the Asus G15 Advantage Edition has two SO-DIMM slots, two M.2 2280 slots, and a 90 Whr battery. ASUS has also equipped the device with the following ports: USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A x3, 3.5mm combo jack for headphone and microphone (left side), and USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C x1 (DisplayPort and Power Delivery), RJ45 x1, and HDMI 2.0b x1 (HDCP SPEC 2.2) (right side).
Asus says the G15 Advantage Edition will be available with two display options, both IPS level, and 15.6-inch panels. The entry-level model is an FHD and 300 Hz panel covering 100% sRGB, but there is also a QHD and 165 Hz panel with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. Both displays support AMD FreeSync Premium and have a 3ms response time.
The G15 Advantage Edition measures 354.9 x 259.9 x 22.69mm and 27.2mm at its thickest point. The laptop weighs 2.4kg regardless of which configuration you buy it in.
