Since the creation of the first ROG product – the original Crosshair motherboard – ASUS has collaborated closely with AMD to empower all players. The Strix G15 and G17 Advantage Edition notebooks take this partnership to a new level. By duplicating AMD components with top-of-the-line Ryzen and Radeon processors, they respond easily to competitive games, streaming, entertainment and everything in between.

The new Radeon RX 6800M GPU shows richer details and more FPS. Strix G Advantage Edition notebooks are the first to use this new chip in the Radeon RX 6000 series, which provides next generation performance and energy efficiency. They are built on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture that combines Ray Tracing, computational and traditional effects to create more realistic images and a deeper environment. Thanks to exclusive ROG cooling enhancements and AMD SmartShift intelligent technology, the Strix G Advantage Edition can maintain sustained GPU speeds up to an impressive 2300MHz.

With the Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, you play more and work faster. This powerful processor is manufactured using state-of-the-art 7nm technology and designed from the ground up to provide the most immersive gaming experience possible on a laptop. Inside are 8 Cores and 16 Threads to accelerate through demanding multitasking and multithreaded loads. Advanced cooling helps the CPU run on up to 90W of sustained power alone, and it is even possible to increase the power limit with the ROG Armory Crate utility.

Exclusive AMD SmartShift and Smart Access Memory technologies provide a distinct advantage by allowing the CPU and GPU to work together. SmartShift technology increases performance in real time by dynamically transferring power between the CPU and GPU, depending on requirements, to ensure that power is available where it is most needed.

Smart Access Memory increases performance in numerous gaming scenarios, improving data transfer between the graphics card and the processor. Conventional systems create a bottleneck by allowing the CPU to access only a small fraction of the graphics memory at a time. Smart Access Memory removes this restriction to take advantage of the full potential of the PCI Express standard, allowing the CPU to access all the GPU memory at once.

ROG Intelligent Cooling innovations improve performance

ROG Intelligent Cooling allows you to reach high speeds as soon as the notebook comes out of the box, and the sophisticated design has a higher thermal range to go further. Turbo Mode increases the power of the GPU above the stock speed, allowing you to further increase the power in Manual mode in Armory Crate.

Cooling improvements start with an exotic liquid metal thermal compound on both chips, improving heat transfer and reducing temperatures by up to 14 ° C. To obtain the best results, it is necessary to apply the right amount meticulously, which is why ROG has developed a patented process that works on a scale. This process makes Advantage Edition the first mass-produced notebooks with liquid metal compound on both processors.

Efficiency is improved by a massive steam chamber that covers the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and the voltage regulation circuit. Artistically laser engraved to highlight the hardware below, this cooling feature was designed specifically for the Advantage Edition model. Compared to conventional heatpipes that transfer only thermal energy along its axis, the steam chambers spread it throughout its area, improving dissipation in small spaces. Comprehensive coverage and huge footprint maximize redistribution for heatsinks, increasing thermal space by 25W compared to the standard Strix thermal module.

The Strix G Advantage Edition also has the latest intelligent cooling features found in other 2021 ROG gaming notebooks. Like the rest of the Strix series, it transfers heat from four side sinks and fan outlets, two Arc fans Flow improves airflow by up to 17% for the CPU and 20% for the GPU without increasing noise. Each fan spins 84 blades with special tips that follow an aerodynamic wave pattern that reduces turbulence. Each of the blades is tapered to 0.1mm at the base to move more air, and is made of a polymer of liquid crystals strong enough to maintain its structure at high speed.

To further amplify the air flow, a new version of the self-cleaning cooling system was developed, with the signature of ROG. The accumulation of dust in the heatsinks and fans slowly compromises the cooling of the notebook over time, so Strix notebooks channel the particles out of the chassis to ensure reliable long-term performance.

Advanced cooling technology extends to the keyboard for more player comfort. It is uncomfortable for a notebook to be warm to the touch when playing for a long time, so ROG has created a CoolZone design with air vents under the keyboard to reduce the surface temperature. A new IR sensor monitors these temperatures in real time, allowing the system to make adjustments to keep the keyboard below 40ºC.

Versatile screen options to play as desired

Strix G Advantage Edition notebooks allow you to define the next generation visual experience with a choice of two exceptional screens wrapped in super-narrow bezels, in 15 ”or 17”.

ESports enthusiasts can choose a fast tournament-level gaming panel with 300Hz update speed, which combined with the 3ms response time and together with the high-powered Radeon GPU, allow you to catch every moment of the action and react so fast as much as the reflexes allow.

Those who prefer fluidity in more detail will opt for the 165Hz WQHD display, also with a response time of 3ms. The higher resolution of 2560 × 1440 shows more pixels, and is even more immersive with full coverage of the DCI-P3 cinematic color range.

FreeSync Premium technology completes the AMD experience, synchronizing the update speed with the GPU framerate to eliminate lags, minimize hiccups and reduce latency.

Duplicate the gaming environment with enhanced audio

Advantage Edition notebooks include two Smart Amp speakers that deliver sound directly behind the keyboard. They are in tune with Dolby Atmos technology for a multidimensional sound landscape with incredible details. This technology can also create 5.1.2-channel virtual surround sound for stereo headphones, which puts the player at the center of the action and helps to pinpoint enemy movements accurately.

To make team communication clearer, AI Noise Cancelation Bidirectional technology eliminates up to 95% of background noise in both incoming and outgoing audio. Developed using a deep neural network for super high accuracy, this algorithm can be applied to any microphone and configured on a per-application basis, so that it can be used in any conversational software, preserving the sound within the game.

Stylish games on the go

Strix G Advantage Edition allows you to face new challenges while remaining compact, mobile and stylish. They have a strong gaming power in chassis with dimensions up to 7% smaller than the previous generation. The larger 90Wh battery allows long battery life with up to 11.4 hours of video playback, while fast charging allows you to charge 50% in just 33 minutes. Support for Type-C charging adds the flexibility of using a standard USB-C charger.

Subtle details add a new dimension to the classic Original Black color, visually distinguishing AMD editions from other members of the ROG Strix 2021 family. Customizable Armor Caps let you show your true color with a new level of chassis customization. ROG created a unique design on Challenger Red for Advantage Edition only. It also includes two additional styles in the box, and are easy to change to add a touch of personality or to match your mood. For those who think more “out of the box”, there is a model to print Armor Caps in 3D in any color, style and material.

With Aura Sync lighting, personalizing the realm of static colors enters a new field of effects and visualizations. Tasteful RGB highlights shine through the exterior, from the four-zone keyboard to the three-sided light bar that illuminates the room.

Ready for everything

Despite being more compact, these powerful notebooks have a full range of strategically placed doors. It has enough ports at the back to move a multi-monitor desktop with all the cables neat, like the power cable, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, USB Type-A, and USB Type-C with DisplayPort.

Two USB ports on the left and an audio plug, keep additional cables out of the way of the mouse. The Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) network completes the package with speeds up to 2.4Gbps and smarter traffic management. The coverage of the Wi-Fi network is reinforced by ROG RangeBoost technology that improves reception when evaluating the signal strength of four internal antennas and then chooses the best pair, minimizing dead spots and increasing the range up to 30%.
