ASUS has revamped its ROG Strix lineup by introducing the G16, a gaming laptop sporting a 16-inch, 16:10, 165Hz FHD panel. The increased screen real estate will do wonders for a lot of people who want to use this machine for productivity, but the one thing that makes the G16 an attractive purchase is its price. At $1,399.99, it is a competitively priced product on Amazon, and with its RTX 4060 GPU, it is cheaper than most RTX 3070 laptops while delivering more performance in return.

The RTX 4060 with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM is complemented by a 14-core, Intel 13th-generation Core i7-13650HX processor. The chip features six performance and eight efficiency cores, giving you a well-rounded package for the price. One of the things ASUS has done well with this gaming laptop is offering a TGP of up to 140W on the RTX 4060 while also providing Advanced Optimus support for when you want to completely switch over to the dedicated GPU for that little extra performance.

The GPU supports technologies like DLSS 3.0 and Frame Generation, both of which will deliver absolutely astonishing improvements in gaming performance, though we do not recommend enabling it for competitive titles like CS: GO and Overwatch because there is input lag when toggling those settings. However, for games that provide a story-based experience with increased visual fidelity, DLSS 3.0 and Frame Generation are extras that you would love to have in your arsenal.

Aside from this, the ROG Strix G16 features 16GB of DDR5 RAM and 512GB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD, both of which can be upgraded down the road. There is a large 90WHr battery inside, and the gaming laptop can be topped up with both the included barrel wall charger and USB-C charger. Additions like Wi-Fi 6E, Thunderbolt 4, RGB backlit keyboard, and CPU + GPU power limit controls are all present.

For $1,399.99, the ASUS ROG Strix G16 is cheaper than several RTX 3070 gaming laptops, increasing its value significantly. With DLSS 3.0 and Frame Generation turned on, the RTX 4060 will deliver a solid framerate in the majority of games, giving you an edge against the competition. Since this is a relatively new listing, we believe that there should be plenty of stock available, so take your time before finalizing your purchase.
