Asus Strix G models with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 and 9th Gen Intel Core i5/i7 on 18K Discount


    If you’re in the market for a decent entry-level gaming laptop, Asus’ ROG line has a pair of great value units for you. The G Core line has two models on Flipkart selling for an incredible 62K INR and 70K INR, respectively. How much laptop do you get at those reasonable prices?

    The only difference between the two models is that the cheaper of the two features the ninth-gen i5-9300H, while the more expensive variant has the Core i7-9750H. While the numbering difference might suggest a significant difference in performance, we’d actually suggest sticking with the cheaper i5 model. Intel themselves have seemingly forgotten how their own numbering system works. i5s no longer lack hyperthreading. And mobile i5s are no longer a dual-core joke. The Core i5-9300H has 4 cores and 8 threads and is more than adequate to pair with an entry-level GPU like the GeForce GTX 1650. The 6-core, 12-thread Core i7-9750H is overkill and will work well with even a GeForce RTX 2080.

    Apart from that, you get a Full HD IPS display at 60 Hz, and 8GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM. The GTX 1650 is roughly on par with the older GeForce GTX 970, so this is adequate for a 1080p/60 experience without breaking the bank. All in all, if you’re in the market for a great entry-level gaming laptop, this is it.

    Don’t tarry much, this deal is only live for the next 6-9 hours and probably won’t last that long.
