Asus announced this Tuesday (21) the launch of the new ROG Strix G15 (G512LV), a gaming notebook from the Republic of Gamers line. Available from today at the company’s store, the notebook costs R$25 thousand or R$22,500 in cash.
Its hardware is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (6 GB GDDR6) graphics card with ROG Boost, 10th generation Intel Core i7 processor (2.6 GHz – 5 GHz) and six cores, plus 16 GB of DDR4 RAM ( 3200MHz).
It also features 512GB of SSD storage (PCIe NVME M2) and slots for up to three RAID 0 SSDs. Asus cites Hyper-Threading allows for up to 12 parallel threads and supports intensive video editing and 3D rendering projects.
The company cites that, in games, the GPU mixes CUDA, RT and Tensor (Nvidia Turing) cores. This makes it enable programmable shading, Ray Tracing and real-time artificial intelligence, which should improve lighting and effects such as reflections or shadows.
Among the highlights is its 15.6-inch screen (IPS LED) with Full HD resolution with a refresh rate of 240Hz. It has a 3 millisecond response time and thinner edges to make usage more immersive.
WiFi 6 and cooling system
Another good feature of the notebook is support for Intel Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ax), with wireless bandwidth up to 2.4Gbps. Asus calls the technology ROG RangeBoost, where an algorithm “evaluates the signal strength of four indoor antennas and chooses the best one to use at your location.” The technology promises to increase wireless range by up to 30%.
The ROG Strix G15 also features RGB illumination on the keyboard and a new lightbar, which can be synchronized with Aura Sync during gameplay. The notebook touchpad features a numeric keypad.
Asus even highlights an intelligent cooling system that uses a liquid metal compound in the CPU. In addition, there is a thermal module that ejects dust and N-Blade fans.
