Asus ROG Strix G G731 Review: Setting New Standards For Entry-Level Gaming Notebooks

The Asus ROG Strix G range is targeted at entry-level gamers but sweetens the deal by splashing in an attractive design package along with flashy RGB lighting.

Asus has been offering a wide scope of items for gamers under its reasonable TUF go and the more premium ROG (Republic of Gamers) extend. Presently in the event that you are especially searching for a gaming PC that presents to you the ROG involvement with a marginally moderate range, the organization has the ROG Strix G. Propelled in the second 50% of 2019 this is a greater amount of a passage level ROG item. Accessible at a spending limit of under Rs 1 lakh, the Strix G is accessible 15-inch (G531) and 17-inch (G731) screen sizes and we took the bigger model through its paces.


Presently the scratch pad unmistakably takes motivation and sits directly beneath the Strix III range. It has a fundamentally the same as configuration including that particular RGB LED strip at the base. The top and the console deck accompany this false brushed metal completion as well. Be that as it may, there are unmistakably some cost cuttings, for example, the whole packaging is made out of plastic. Likewise, Asus has removed the Keystone security highlight on the PC that was seen on the Strix III arrangement.

In spite of the utilization of plastic, the machine doesn’t look ratty

The pivot raises a touch of worry as the huge fumes grilles at the back limits the point to just around 120 degrees. Additionally, it isn’t as inflexible as I was anticipating. Having said that, the journal doesn’t look decrepit by any means. From a separation, it is undeniably a gaming PC. There is insignificant flex, and by and large the machine feels solid. It is a piece on the overwhelming side, however that is something that once anticipates from a gaming machine, particularly a 17-inch one.

The top and side bezels around the presentation are thin to chop down the general size, however some way or another the machine isn’t the slimmest one out there. Be that as it may, then again, the enormous barbecues at the back assistance in cooling the equipment better.

Availability AND PORTS

You get every fundamental port including three standard USB ports using the USB3.2 (Gen1) standard, a HDMI port, an ethernet port and an earphone and mic combo. Shockingly there is no USB Type-C which is odd right now age. Remarkably, higher designs do offer this port. Likewise, there is no SD card opening or a webcam, which is frustrating for easygoing streamers. Aside from that, the Intel Wireless-AC 9560 contribution 1.73Gbps of most extreme speeds alongside Bluetooth 5.0.


The chiclet console offers RGB backdrop illumination and I saw the general understanding as truly not too bad. It offers great key-travel despite the fact that they do feel somewhat soft. Additionally, the RGB backdrop illumination is a solitary zone and not per-key RGB since it is similarly a less expensive item. The NumPad and Arrow keys are remarkably littler than the remainder of the keys, which has neither rhyme nor reason, particularly on a 17.3-inch structure factor.

The touchpad accompanies committed left and right mouse catches which were pleasant to see, and the general touch and motion reaction felt on point to me.


The presentation board on the Strix G utilizes an IPS board with 1080p goals. Asus’ legitimate site doesn’t make reference to this, however you can get it in 60Hz, 120Hz and even 144Hz. The one I got offered 120Hz which is prudent on the off chance that you are intending to play esports titles.

It is a matte presentation and offers not too bad looking hues and splendor while the reaction rate is practically on point. It isn’t as top of the line as a portion of the more costly journals and considering the high invigorate rate, the shading extent isn’t appropriate for studio work. Other than that, I might suspect the presentation is superbly useful for easygoing gaming.

We strongly suggest settling on the high-invigorate rate show choice


I was sent the essential arrangement civility Intel to test here which incorporated the ninth gen Intel Core i5-9300H quad-center processor. It is an entirely fit chipset timed at 2.4GHz with help speeds going up to 4.1GHz. There is likewise Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1650 GPU offering 4GB of video memory and 8GB of DDR4 RAM timed at 2666MHz which is expandable to 32GB. For capacity, you get a 512GB NVMe SSD with a 1TB half and half HDD. The journal can likewise be designed with Intel’s all the more remarkable Core i7 9750H six-center processor, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia RTX 2070 and double stockpiling choice. At the hour of composing, Asus India’s site just notices the alternative of either the Nividia GTX 1650 or the GTX 1050. In any case, several months back there were sure variations with Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and 2070 GPUs on Amazon.

The scratch pad, especially the model I surveyed, is made for a passage level gamer or somebody who likes to enjoy esports titles. So anticipate that nearby should 80fps on games like PUBG and Apex Legends at medium settings and up to 100fps in the event that you further dial down the illustrations settings. The high-invigorate rate show is unquestionably prescribed from my side in spite of the fact that there is no Nvidia G-Sync. I was happy with the gaming execution while thermals were basically within proper limits with the focal point of the console and the back getting warm under substantial burdens.

There is a committed key to switch between fan speed profiles while you can likewise utilize the devoted ROG Armory container programming for improved control of the framework just as the lighting at the base and the console. For normal undertakings like surfing the web and watching recordings, this is a strong amazing machine. One thing that disillusioned me was that the RGB strip at the base and the RGB lighting on the console are integrated, which implies you can’t have separate hues on the two.

The battery is appraised at 66Whr which is truly normal for a 17-inch scratch pad. It keeps going around 2-3 hours relying upon the splendor and invigorate rate you are determined to. The organization offers a genuinely conservative 150W charger to juice up the machine.


There is a ton to like about the ROG Strix G. The exhibition of the equipment is dependable while the general structure looks great notwithstanding the utilization of plastic. For a section level ROG gaming PC, Asus has attempted its best to give the best involvement with the asking cost. There are a couple of deficiencies yet I don’t accept that they are sufficiently large to trouble the client. The range is made for somebody who needs to hop on to some well known games, particularly in the esports portion. Very good quality gaming titles ought to be bolstered, yet don’t anticipate a great deal. Likewise, the high-invigorate show is strongly suggested.
