Quote from: Redaktion on March 17, 2023, 20:10:15Hello, unfortunately Asus is not playing nice with Strix Laptops this year: it seems all reviewers did test Strix models with BIOS 306, but since then Asus quietly downgrade CPU with BIOS 308: max boost clock is now only 5.3GHz.The ROG Strix G16 is the third Strix we've reviewed in a still-ripening 2023. Based on recent experience, the choice to downsize to a 16-inch model is a good one. We see that the 4080 fits perfectly between the RTX 4090 and RTX 4070. In the ROG Strix G16, the GeForce graphics card is finally able to show off its capabilities.

OLED has one advantage: it can have very small display response times. So many OLED displays can deliver 240Hz or even more.

Quote from: NikoB on March 21, 2023, 19:06:48Divide 1000 by the average B2W/G2G response time and compare to the claimed 1000/240.
This panel is fast enough to ignore the response, but it is not "240"Hz.
This is an almost honest panel at 165Hz as the panels declared as "165" should have been. Which obviously misleads buyers. Of course, provided that you can trust the measurements in the review.
Quote from: NikoB on March 18, 2023, 11:59:34Again fake "240Hz" panel. Really 165-170Hz. The contrast is disappointing. 2.5k sucks for games when fps is not enough, switching to fhd will result in a guaranteed blurry picture, unlike switching 4k to fhd where everything will be perfectly sharp.
The second M.2 slot covers the M.2 slot for WLAN - as usual with Asus - hello increased noise on WLAN from SSD heating. And vice versa.
The memory is slow and poorly tuned in terms of timings, which immediately affected the AIDA64 tests. The loss to models from other manufacturers is obvious.
The noise is the wildest even in medium load. The model is very noisy.
The keyboard, as usual, is completely disfigured from the classic one - it is impossible to work on such in office applications and develop software; laptop, unlike the Legion series is not a one-stop all-in-one solution.
It is not clear to me who buys such models, although it all depends on the price compared to competitors. Maybe one of the consumers will fall for such a "miracle"...
