A boatload of gaming laptops have been discounted as part of Amazon’s Black Friday 2023 deals, but even then, not all of them can fit your budget, that is, unless you stumble across the ASUS ROG Strix G16, which is now available for just $1,099.99 and features an RTX 4060 GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 RAM. This machine was previously available in the $1,299.99 to $1,399.99 range, so looking at the latest offer, that is a considerable drop, which is excellent news for consumers.
Coming to the specifications, the 16-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel (1920 x 1200) supports up to a 165Hz refresh rate. With the 16:10 aspect ratio, the ROG Strix G16 now offers more vertical screen real estate, and more of this is always a plus for the everyday user. Alongside the RTX 4060 GPU, you get a 14-core Intel Core i7-13650HX, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD. The best part about this gaming laptop deal is that the RAM and storage are not soldered to the motherboard and can always be upgraded in the future.
For a little extra performance, ASUS’ Strix G16 features a MUX switch and supports NVIDIA’s Advanced Optimus, so you can switch to the dedicated graphics processor at any time, which is the RTX 4060 in this case, and you can complete this process without rebooting the machine. Gaming laptops that do not have Advanced Optimus will always need to be restarted for the changes to take effect. The cooling solution has also been revamped, and instead of a traditional dual-fan design, ASUS has upgraded it with three fans, which will help to dissipate heat faster and keep the temperatures lower.
A slew of ports are also available on the Strix G16, including a Thunderbolt 4 port for connecting an external GPU enclosure for extra performance. TheRead more on wccftech.com
