...a 17.3in gaming laptop for those who appreciate the latest visuals at an ultra-high refresh rate.
The Asus ROG Strix G17 G713Q succeeds by knowing exactly what it wants to be; a 17.3in gaming laptop for those who appreciate the latest visuals at an ultra-high refresh rate.
Those core requirements are enabled through a combination of Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, a full-fat GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, and a super-fast, matte 300Hz 1080p display. A lovely set of ingredients for pro gamers who want to keep things moving as quickly as possible, and overall implementation is bolstered through a 1TB M.2 SSD, decent port selection, and all-day battery life.
An ideal setup for the target audience, but tailoring for a particular use-case does introduce limitations elsewhere. Those wanting a laptop that doubles for creativity may lament the option of a higher-resolution display with greater colour coverage, the absence of a webcam or biometric security is another potential downside, and as with most Asus gaming laptops, there's some bloatware to contend with.
Bottom line: at £1,900 the ROG Strix G17 G713Q proves that Ryzen gaming laptops are here to stay and represents a solid choice for gamers who favour high-refresh action at 1080p.
