ASUS has officially unveiled a new model under its Strix line of gaming laptops. The ROG Strix G (G531/G731) is a more streamlined and budget-oriented model that focuses on both performance and essentials.
The G531/G731 features an all-new streamlined design for the Strix line that comes with a wrap-around RGB light bar near the bottom of the keyboard. The design also exchanges a full keyboard for a tenkeyless layout that instead utilizes the touchpad for the numeric keypad.
The new Strix G comes in 15.6-inch (G531) and 17.3-inch (G731) models with 1080p 144Hz refresh rate display panels although SKUs with different panels could also be announced.
The G531 is equipped with an Intel Core i7-9750 processor, a GTX 1660 Ti (6GB) GPU, 8GB of 2666MHz DDR4 RAM, a 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, and a 1TB 2.5-inch HDD. We haven’t confirmed if the G731 will also come with the same internals.
Information on pricing, release date, and specific SKUs/specifications have yet to be released but we should be hearing more about these new laptops in the coming weeks.
