Hi guys Sciencetechhealth here and today I'm gonna look into yet another gaming laptop with a new AMD rise in 4000 series in mobile CPU the Asus stuff a 15 now a lot of you have been requesting this review in the comments of the previous two AMD laptops that are reviewed so far and I totally understand why this laptop is supposed to offer the best gaming experience for your money as possible now while Asus positioned the rog g15 in a bit of a higher price bracket and it is a bit fancier this a 15 is pretty much the most value-oriented gaming laptop with a new AMD CPU and we know the raw
 performance of these CPUs and other laptops but the question here is how well will it perform combined with the strong and video GPU in an affordable chassis now this is pretty much the top spec version and it comes with a risin 740 800 H it has an RT X 2016 on max-q GPU 144 Hertz IPS panel one terabyte nvme SSD and a 90 watt-hour battery so these specs are pretty incredible considering the fact that this laptop costs 1199 or $1200 in the US now keep in mind, you can get a more affordable version so for example if you go for the gtx 660ti
 again non-max-q and a smaller SSD it will cost you less than $1000 so that's pretty great
 I'm not sure what the pricing is going to be here in the EU but I'm hoping it's going to be in the same ballpark

 so yeah this laptop is pretty much one of the most if not the most interesting affordable gaming laptop you can find currently on the market but it's not perfect and there are still some things to consider before just running to the store and getting one for yourself so let's begin this video is brought to you by DL got o key light to err now you probably think key lights are made to make your streaming setup look more professional but did you know it's also great for your plants they just thrive in that soft lighting that can be easily adjusted using your app or your stream duck love your plants by Elgato the new the tough laptop is available in two designs either black with a brushed look or more clean grey like I have right here that has a coated top layer to stop it from soaking up fingerprints now you can still see some but the combination of the material and the lighter shade really prevents it from looking dirty the moment you touch it I'm not a huge fan of the tough logo I have to admit it looks a bit outdated and a bit like a tramp stamp but if I had to choose between this or a brushed metal that I have to wipe every time I touch it I would choose this one it is not the most compact of laptop designs but it's still relatively portable and not too heavy standing at 2.3 kilos so it's still something you can just drag to school or to the office the hinge feels really good there isn't too much flex in the panel and it's really easy to open with one hand the inside is plastic but again it feels sturdy with only a tiny bit of a flex and most importantly all edges are really nicely rounded so nothing feels sharp and uncomfortable it reminds me a bit of the Zephyr as g15 except that the tough does have a webcam built-in but it did lose the dedicated volume and software buttons now those are really nice to have but using the function key instead is not a big deal.

and the actuation isn't too light I had no problems getting used to this one and I'd say it's excellent both for typing and for gaming unlike the g15 there is also a numpad included and I personally cannot live without one and the keyboard is RGB now there is no color mixing just one color at a time the touchpad is pretty good as well I mean it's still a touchpad and any touchpad is really hard to love but it feels smooth and the palm rejection is mostly good

 I also preferred that it comes with dedicated buttons so while gamers will still want a good Mouse next to this aptop it is alright for day-to-day use connectivity is alright considering the price on the left side there is an Ethernet connection
 hdmi 2.0 B there is two USB three type-a ports and a one USB 3.2 gen2 type-c port with the DisplayPort 1.4 support on the right side there is a single USB 2 port there is no SD card readers no
 Thunderbolt support and the right USB port probably should have been used B three instead of USB too but I think gamers looking to buy something

 affordable should really find this more than enough when it comes to performance considering the fact that this laptop uses the risin 740 800 H and at the slightly lower power HS model we can see it actually performs really well it adds a line and it's roughly on par with the bravo 17 in cpu performance alone do note that it comfortably leaves Intel Core i7 10 750 H models behind in all multi-core benchmarks as this is an 8 core CPU now gamers should be very happy to because unlike the previous Rison CPUs the current generation removes the CPU bottleneck and less the r-tx 2060 in my model perform as expected it is going head-to-head with the Intel based GS 66 that has the same GPU which means that you can comfortably play any game at Ultra or at least high settings in case of extremely demanding games like Assassin's Creed Odyssey for example it is also fair to assume that if I'd have a tough with a gtx 660ti we should expect gaming performance to be very similar to a 10th gen until machine using a GPU as well and that isn't much different from an RT X 2060 actually but that is invidious problem not something cases can really do much about then again if you go for the RT X option it will let you play minecraft RT X later this year and it will let you use the LSS 2.0 which sounds very promising on paper so that makes RT X 2060 an
 attractive upgrade perhaps the most impressive result here would be the battery life because this laptop
 completely destroys the Amazigh brava 17 Intel based GF 65 but also leaves the rog G 15
 comfortably behind it lasts over eight and a half hours if you just watch Netflix at 118 its and that would probably be even more if you just play h.264 files from your own drive instead so that is just great just remember you still want to plug it in for gaming as performance will suffer and your battery will still go out quickly if you're using your r-tx 2016 they remember that in some of the cheaper tough models you get a smaller 48 what are a battery instead of the 90 what our battery that I've tested here so you should expect close to the half of the battery life that you see here in the graphs another nice feature for everyday use is the fan stop which I also saw on the g15
 in idle or light use you cannot here the laptop at all which makes it even nicer to use for school or work of course in heavy CPU loads or gaming the fans will have to spin aggressively and you'll hear the laptop work although it's still not as loud as some of the other laptops I've seen so far even the g15 was a bit louder while gaming thermals are pretty much in line with the alternatives with the CPU sitting at around 95 degrees and the GPU at around 80 when using the turbo profile this is within spec but I can't help but feel a bit uncomfortable when CPU temps past 90 degrees Celsius at no point though it really feels hot to touch but you can still feel hot air blowing out the back and the right side of the laptop opening the laptop is not hard at all only a couple of screws stand in the way of cleaning out the fans replacing the memory sticks or adding a second nvme SSD unfortunately they use different sizes of screws so you really need to keep track of which one goes where and I would say if they could really stick to just one size that would be great even though this one has a fairly large 90 watt hour battery it does look like there is space for an even larger and if you get a 48 what our model instead you will gain a slot for a 2.5 inch drive as well now one thing I am disappointed in is that Asus to use y55 chip I know it has an Ethernet connection
 five six chips are barely more expensive and Wi-Fi on a laptop is still pretty damn important and they also try to hide it under this SSD probably in hope that I wouldn't notice but thankfully if you really want a Wi-Fi six chip you can grab an ax 200 for about twenty dollars or twenty euros and install it yourself pretty easily the 144 Hertz IPS panel is also a bit so-so but that's pretty much what you should expect when you are looking at an affordable gaming laptop I mean it has nice viewing angles it feels and looks fast enough it has adaptive sync included it also has a decent support if you connect it to an external display but the color gamut is just barely mediocre and pretty much like we've seen on the Bravo 17 and the G 15 and the other results like contrast and maximum brightness are mid-range as best now this is not something you should worry about as a gamer so I can give it a pass considering it's meant to be a gaming laptop but when you consider this laptop has all the power needed even for serious video and photo editing it still ashamed as a display stops it from being this serious option for creators on a budget if that's what you're looking for you should look into the 240 Hertz IPS version of the rodg 15 instead
 kudos to Asus for using a pretty decent SSD and not the cheapest and vme option and there are also speakers that are actually pretty alright to watch a movie or two now the gamers will still want a headset but you cannot really expect a really awesome audio from a laptop especially at this price so that about covers it for the Asus tough a 15 laptop and it's pretty impressive as well I mean it's not a thinness or the lightest or the sexiest of laptops out there but it's really well built it has a really pleasant keyboard to work on and to game on and it has a really amazing battery life on top of that you get a lot of CPU and GPU horsepower for a very low price so just a reminder this one is tops packed and it will cost you $1,200 in the US and
 you can also go for a cheaper version that is under $1000 so that's pretty impressive it means that all the other alternatives out there like Bravo laptops for example will have to drop in price a lot to be able to compete with this one and you even have to consider really hard and think really hard if it's worth spending more to go for the rrgg 15 there is a bit more
 aesthetically pleasing but also performs a bit less now the fact that the display is not for anything other but gaming and that they chipped out on the Wi-Fi chip is something that is important to know now for the display I think it's a missed opportunity because they would be so nice to have a better display paired with such a strong and powerful CPU but when it comes to the Wi-Fi chip I mean you can just replace it yourself for $20 or yours so it's not such a big deal the only thing that still worries me a bit is the availability and the pricing in other regions so if the price is a bit higher that means that there going to be other options to seriously consider as well but if the pricing stays as
 competitive as it is in the u.s. right now that means that this laptop would be Dell laptop to go for if you're looking for the most bang for your buck now that's it for today thank you so much for watching let me know in the comments down below what do you think about this review and this laptop don't forget to comment share this site and see you in the next one bye guys.
