With the shortage of next-generation components and consoles, overpriced graphics cards and other imbalances in the gaming hardware market that we continue to experience well into 2022, gaming laptops have taken on a new dimension despite not needing the portability offered by these devices.
If we want current gaming hardware, such as an NVIDIA RTX 3000 card, and we don’t want to wait for the market to stabilize to build a desktop PC, 17.3-inch laptops are the ideal purchase option; thanks to a superior diagonal, they offer an experience more similar to what we would get on a traditional computer. Like this one from Asus reduced to 1,198.99 euros in PcComponentes: its historical minimum price.
We are talking about the Asus ROG Strix G17 in its G713IC-HX011 variant, an excellent gaming laptop that rIt is now more interesting than ever thanks to the 200 euros discount it has applied right now. And that allows us to play whatever we want even taking advantage of NVIDIA’s DLSS and ray tracing technologies thanks to having a latest batch RTX.
ASUS ROG G713IC-HX011 – 17.3″ Full HD 144Hz Gaming Laptop (Ryzen 7 4800H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, GeForce RTX 3050 4GB, Without Operating System) Eclipse Gray – Spanish QWERTY Keyboard
Specifically, it incorporates an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card with 4 GB of VRAM; the cheapest GPU in the 3000 family that offers us dedicated DLSS and ray tracing cores. Plus a high-performance AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage.
But probably where this Asus ROG stands out the most is its 17.3-inch Full HD screen at 144 Hz. allows you to use more space on the screen in a body quite similar to that of the “classic” 15.6-inch laptops.
This equipment, finally, mounts a full backlit keyboard (although the RGB is also present in the rest of the laptop), incorporates ports and connections of all kinds and, yes, comes without operating system as standard; we will have to install it ourselves once we receive it.
