During real-world testing, the ROG Strix G15 held its own against everything we put it through. To gauge its performance, we launched 45 Google Chrome tabs running Tweetdeck, YouTubeTwitchGoogle Docs and Sheets among them. For good measure, we added a Netflix movie stream. To our amazement, the laptop chugged along unfazed. 

And how does AMD's new Radeon RX 6000 graphics compare against Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 GPUs? In our lab, the RX 6800M bested the RTX 3080 in a handful of games and rarely fell short of the category average for gaming laptops. Based on our own benchmarks and AMD's internal numbers, Nvidia should be worried. 

Weighing in at 5.4 pounds and 14.1 x 10.8 x 1 inches, the ROG Strix G15 is on a par with its main competitor, the Alienware m15 R4 (5 pounds, 14.2 x 10.9 x 0.7~0.8 inches).
