ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

Gaming laptops have come a long way since I bought a heavy 17 inch Dell-laptop with a discrete Nvidia-card many years ago. That machine was big, heavy and noisy. It also was quite fast for its time. These days gaming laptops come in a variety of formats. True, the big heavy machines are still around. I used to own a Alienware laptop a few years ago that still were pretty big and heavy.

The last few years though a new breed of gaming laptops have emerged that are are thin and (relatively) light while still pack a punch. Nvidia:s Max-Q GPU’s that were built for laptops helped in the beginning but today you can find thin laptops even with non-Max-Q GPU’s.

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15″ 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
