Many products that Asus has included in the formation of Republic of Gamers for many years have attracted the attention of the players with their design and performance. One of them is our ROG G531G model. The laptop, which is extremely ambitious with its design, on the other hand, deserves to be really remarkable with the features it offers. Now let’s quickly start with the design of the ROG Strix G531G, then move deeper into it.
ROG Strix G531G is a model that reflects ROG’s extraordinary design language with its design. Although it has a plastic case, Asus has processed this material so well that we can say that the laptop is at a premium level with the feel and appearance it provides with both the back surface and the lower part.
Apart from the embroidered design, one of the factors that increase the visibility of the notebook is undoubtedly the strip RGB lighting. In this model, Asus did not limit the RGB lighting only to the keyboard section, but also extended it to 3 sides from the bottom surface of the laptop. We believe that the RGB strips reflected on the table from the right, left and front of the notebook will make especially the players who like the rising RGB trend of the last period very happy. You can control the color and effect changes of these lighting areas with the arrow keys or change them through Asus’ Armory Crate software. In the meantime, let’s also say that you can make many more settings through this software.
When you take a closer look at the laptop, you see really nice details. For example, WASD keys are one of them. Asus has also designed the WASD keys on the Strix G531G’s keyboard to be transparent. Thus, the notebook, which states that it is a complete gamer, smells a gaming computer with the ROG logo on the back.
There are volume keys, fan control key and ROG key on the notebook, which we can say is very positive in terms of typing capability, whether it is the general layout of the keyboard, the spacing and the height of the keys. With the fan button, you can run the laptop’s fans in silent or performance mode, and you can access Armory Crate quickly by pressing the ROG button. Again, Asus says the keyboard has a durability of over 20 million keystrokes.
Meanwhile, the laptop’s ventilation louvers are placed on 3 sides. There are double fans in the back and double fans in N-Blade design inside the fan grilles on the right. Consisting of 83 blades, these fans form the basis of the ROG Smart Cooling system. This system, which cleans itself by throwing dust out, thus prevents dust accumulation on the fans during long periods of use.
The touchpad under the keyboard is very comfortable for general use. Thus, when you need to use the laptop in mobile environments other than gaming, you can use it easily with the touchpad. Also, let’s also say that the ROG Strix G laptop has a touch-sensitive numeric keypad in this part, although it is not in our current model. In other words, you can also use the touchpad area as a numeric keypad in these models.
When we look around the laptop, we see that there are 3 USB 3.2 ports on the left side and a USB 3.2 Type-C port on the back. You can also use this rear USB-C connector as a DisplayPort output. Next to it is an HDMI 2.0b port and an Ethernet port.
Technical Specifications and Performance
Asus ROG Strix G531G owns a 15.6 inch screen. The notebook, which provides Full HD resolution with this screen, also provides a wide visibility. Because the screen is not stuck between the wide bezels; It is surrounded by a thin bezel on 3 sides. This is a nice detail, but if you look carefully, you can see that there is no webcam on the screen. We’ve seen a webcam placed here on similar thin bezel laptops, but Asus has chosen to remove it entirely.
The screen, where IPS is preferred as a panel, also includes a 120 Hz refresh rate . Thus, keeping pace with the dynamics of the last period with its screen, the laptop produces a beautiful image with its screen. In addition, the screen being matte prevents reflections.
When we look at the technical infrastructure of the ROG Strix G531G, we see that Intel’s 9th generation processor is located here. Powered by Intel Core i7-9750H processor, the notebook runs at 2.60 GHz with this 6-core and 12-thread processor. With Intel Hyper-Threading technology, the processor can increase the processor frequency from 2.6 GHz to 4.5 GHz at the peak, let alone games, it can also provide great performance for business use. So much so that as long as we had this laptop, we conducted the assembly process of many of our videos on this model. Let’s say that it offers very short render times.
It should be noted that in addition to the powerful processor, the notebook also has DDR4 memory with a capacity of 16 GB and the frequency of these memories is at the level of 2666 MHz. On the other hand, both SSD and HDD are positioned in the device for performance and large capacity. Using the 256 GB MN.2 NVMe unit, the Laptap offers 1 TB capacity with its hard disk. However, this disk has 5400 RPM. While this has happened, let’s not go without saying that 7200 RPM would be much better.
Asus ROG Strix G series has different model options. Some of these include RTX 2070 and 2060 graphics cards, while the model we have has GTX 1660Ti . With the GTX 1660Ti, which comes with 6GB of GDDR6 memory, you can comfortably play many popular games of today at high-end graphics settings. What’s in between? There ‘s Battlefield V , Assassin’s Creed Odyssey , Metro Exodus , Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Rage 2 . Since we have used the first 3 games we have previously used in many reviews, this time we will make a difference and show you the performance of the Asus ROG Strix G531G in Rage 2 with Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
We set the graphics settings to Ultra in both games and as a result, we got good performance. For example , the laptop, which shows an average of 70 FPS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider , uses the CPU at a maximum of 80 percent in this scenario, while the GPU is used by 68 percent to 95 percent. Temperature values were a maximum of 82 degrees in the CPU, while it was around 75 degrees on the graphics card. In this sense, we can say that the ventilation system of the notebook is very effective.
Let’s show you the ROG Strix G531G, which shows an average of 70 FPS in Ultra graphics details in Rage 2, with its gaming performance.
