Game, stream and create with the new Asus ROG Strix G16 and G18

You will never run out of power again. This year, Asus has renewed its ROG range with two new laptops: the ROG Strix G16 and ROG Strix G18. Machines with larger screens, integrated into frames that are still just as compact, and equipped with the latest Nvidia graphics cards (GPUs). Whether you’re a gamer or a creative, you’ll love these Asus computers.

You will see things big

A large screen to play, or even work is very valuable. But on laptops, this is often done at the expense of practicality… except at Asus. On its 2023 models of ROG Strix, the Taiwanese manufacturer has managed to fit larger screens than those of the previous generation in the same chassis. Instead of 15-inch and 17-inch panels, the G16 and G18 benefit respectively from 16-inch screens (40.4 cm screen diagonal) and 18 inches (46 cm screen diagonal).

This development is not trivial. On a daily basis, gamers benefit from a much better visual comfort thanks to these modern screens. That of the ROG Strix G16 has a refresh rate of 165 hertz (Hz) and only 3 ms of latency for an ultra-smooth gaming experience, which is decisive online for flushing out your opponents first. The 16/10 format of the FHD+ screen (definition of 1,920 points by 1,200) is also appreciable for budding editors, because it allows you to better see your timeline in length or even to display the equivalent of 2 sheets A4 side by side.

The Asus ROG G16 is a machine with a sober design.

Want a bigger screen? The G18 has an 18-inch Nebula Display QHD (definition of 2,560 points by 1,600) panel. And this time around, it can hit the 240Hz refresh rate, which is huge. The latency is always 3 ms for an always exemplary responsiveness in game. Note that this PC is compatible Dolby Vision et Adaptive-Sync.

Uncompromising power

These screens would be nothing if not properly exploited by Nvidia’s state-of-the-art graphics cards (GPUs). The entry-level Asus ROG Strix G16 is equipped with a GeForce RTX 4050 for its part, and the ROG Strix G18 with a GeForce RTX 4070. Judicious choices to take advantage of the latest innovations in the best conditions.

Indeed, the graphics cards of the 40 series benefit from the new architecture There is Lovelale which uses the technology of Deep Learning Super Sampling 3 (DLSS). Aided by artificial intelligence (AI), it makes it possible to achieve high-level graphics rendering and improve game fluidity. The third generation of DLSS notably exploits theOptical Flow Accelerator : an optical flow accelerator allowing the AI ​​to build additional images without generating visual aberration, and therefore, to gain in fluidity. The gains would be four times higher according to Nvidia.

L’architecture There is Lovelale also speeds up Ray Tracing, a technology capable of simulating light and giving shadows more depth. These contributions make the gaming experience even more immersive, especially in adventure games or RPGs like Cyber Punk 2077.

In addition to requiring powerful components, such as the RTX 40-Series graphics cards of the Asus ROG Strix G16 and G18, these features require a lot of energy. Nvidia has therefore developed Max-Qa set of AI-based technologies to optimize CPU and graphics card performance. So much so that the autonomy of laptops is doubled and the machines become de facto quieter.

To each his own gaming PC

The Asus ROG Strix G16 and G18 are the new gaming PCs of the moment. The ROG G16 has a smaller 16-inch screen (40.4 cm screen diagonal), a humble Nvidia RTX 4050 GPU (in its entry-level version) and therefore, at a more affordable price. The ROG G18 is a more powerful and more comfortable alternative for lovers of large slabs (18 inches, which is equivalent to 46 cm of screen diagonal). There is therefore something for all tastes and all needs at Asus.
