REVIEW: ASUS Zephyrus G15 is a perfect gaming machine

Share

After ASUS released last year the thin, light, and powerful notebook with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 processor— Zephyrus G14, the brand seemed to effectively master the skill of building gaming laptops after experimenting with the 2021 release.

ASUS’s primary Zephyrus laptop with NVIDIA’s GTX 1080 GPU is light-weighted. However, extremely high in price and had bad battery life. The Zephyrus G15 is practically a perfect gaming machine for gamers, with major specifications.

Typically, the G15 is at 4.2 pounds, easier to carry than most different 15-inch laptops. The G15 highlights AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HS, NVIDIA’s RTX 30-series GPUs, and an arbitrary Quad HD display operating at 165Hz that also contains G-SYNC or FreeSync support. ASUS’s new and first gaming laptops with AMD’s new hardware alone make it a compelling investment.

ASUS Zephyrus G15 Specifications

Zephyrus G15 includes NVIDIA’s RTX 3080 Max-Q and that 1,440p screen, which makes perfect sense. The Zephyrus G15 looks so silky smooth with clear-cut fine edges, and other points on-screen look clearer than on lower resolution screens.

While the Zephyrus G15 is powerful enough to deliver over 100FPS in 1,440p with graphics crank on both games, what mattered more to me was how well the screen kept up with all of the action.

Since the screen can comfortably follow the twitchy mouse moves, it can help when we play games like a sniper shot. The G15 screen can automatically synchronize with the current frame rate, as it has a high refresh speed. It is the gaming equivalent of listening to a ritornelle in flawless harmony.

Premium Specifications

The G15 can stay up to an effective eight hours and 50 minutes on the battery test, properly below the near 13-hour benchmark of the G14 but 25 minutes better than the other premium laptops.

ASUS’s keyboard has a high potential that stresses a wholesome 1.7mm of travel. While they are not fixed like the CherryMX device appearing on Alienware’s gaming laptops, they feel flexible and responsive.

Meanwhile, the mouse trackpad is perfect for web surfing, writing/editing documents, and performing other productivity activities.

G15 laptop features an Ethernet, HDMI port, three USB 3.2 Type-A connections, one USB-C, and a MicroSD card slot. However, they are not coming with one major component, a webcam.

ASUS Zephyrus G15 Price

The Zephyrus G15 now starts at $1,499 on the market with an RTX 3060 and 16GB of RAM variant. ASUS is offering a meaningful value for the cost — the most advanced Razer Blade begins at $1,700, including an RTX 3060 and a 1080p 144Hz display.

The Zephyrus G15 is almost lightweight, powerful, and far more affordable than other premium notebooks. The only thing that it doesn’t come with is a webcam. The users may need to set it up manually. Overall, it’s a perfect machine for gamers.
