The Asus ROG Strix G14 Advantage Edition is an all-AMD system with strong gaming and productivity performance and good audio. But the display could be brighter and that the SSD faster.
Earlier this year, AMD launched its blockbuster Ryzen 5000 processors for laptops. Now, the company’s new Radeon RX 6000M graphics are here, too. They come together in the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition ($1,549.99), as AMD works with laptop vendors to show that a laptop with all of its technologies can be premium and deliver as good an experience as any of the best gaming laptops using Intel and Nvidia components.
It wasn’t that long ago that it seemed every AMD laptop was saddled with a poor screen, lackluster plastic chassis and little else to speak of. But the Strix G15 offers strong gaming and productivity performance, loud speakers and a soft-touch and metal housing. It’s not without its flaws, and AMD has no option for 4K gaming at the moment, but AMD laptops are catching up.
