...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.

All very nice and a good review, but this really does show the state of affairs with Nvidia's naming. The worst disparity between the two 3700s in use is 50%. I think selling laptop GPUs intentionally using desktop branding / status is misleading in itself. I think having such majorly wide variation in performance between two identically named parts is an outrage and should be illegal. The CPUs have at least a couple of letters after the name to let you know immediately there's a difference and you can look that up. The depth of knowledge and detail you require to make a buying decision is unreasonable for the average consumer.

I think it has gone to the point where this needs properly addressing by trading standards.
It wouldn't even be that difficult for them to make things a lot clearer with a minor change, just include M and the wattage in the model number so that it was immediately clear there was a difference e.g. the one in this laptop would be a 3070m115.

Obviously, this still wouldn't remove all confusion or be a perfect measure since the cooling systems in laptops can make a huge difference between models too, but it would simplify matters a bit if nvidia formalised the instructions to the oems.
