The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 Gaming Laptop with RTX 3080 is a steal at just $1,699.99

It’s rare to see an RTX 3080 gaming laptop available for just $1,699.99, but during the holiday season anything is possible. The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 has been touted as one of the best mobile devices in almost every aspect, but the higher end version wasn’t as affordable as it is on Amazon right now. This price used to be the cost of the RTX 3070 laptops, but you take that one step further.

As for what’s inside the Zephyrus G15, there’s an 8-core, 16-thread AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS CPU, along with an 80W RTX 3080 with 8GB GDDR6 VRAM that can boost up to 100W with NVIDIA’s Dynamic Boost technology. While you might think 80W is a low power limit for a GPU, it was done on purpose to keep weight and thickness down. The Zephyrus G15 is also built well, thanks to its magnesium alloy body, and it’s also quite light, but that means the GPU won’t be able to run at its full potential.

You also get 16GB of DDR4 RAM, of which 8GB of RAM is soldered to the motherboard, again done to keep the thickness level down, but you still have one SODIMM slot. There is a 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD with an available slot to expand your existing storage. The screen is a 15.6-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is where the RTX 3080 GPU laptop will really be able to stretch its legs.

Apart from that, you can charge this gaming laptop with its Type-C connection, but use the barrel plug when playing games as the latter will power the Zephyrus G15 to its full potential. There are plenty of ports, such as multiple USB-A ports, a microSD card slot, HDMI 2.0b ports, and USB-C ports, so you’ll have peace of mind when connecting different peripherals.

The battery is a whopping 90Wh, which can give you several hours of battery life, according to several tests by our reviewers. Overall, this is a solid piece of gaming laptop, and if you want something that will last, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 will do just fine.
