Layout and keyboard

On the outside, this laptop is identical to the aforementioned ASUS ROG Strix G16 G614JI-N3163 and the other models in its series, which means that it outlines a first-class construction, which combines a Aluminum top cover with a robust plastic base. The entire unit has a dark gray finish and the bottom of the base is lined with what appears to be a LED strip with RGB lightingthus sealing the gamer aesthetics of this laptop.

In another order of ideas, Asus provides a full QWERTY keyboard layout with hotkeys additional at the top. The latter are programmable and, by default, control volume, microphone, fan settings and give access to the Armory Crate software. The keys offer 2mm travel and, as you can see in the images, they are backlit, which matches the transparent keys (QWER/ASDF and space). As expected, we can customize the light effects and patterns using the Asus software.

Screen and sound

The 16-inch ROG Nebula Display present in the ASUS ROG Strix G16 series is one of its greatest virtues, and in this specific model it isoutlines a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixelsas well as a 240Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 color coverage. Combined with your time 3ms response and G-Sync technology, we can expect unparalleled fluidity when playing; while thanks to the high resolution and color precision we can attend to creative and editing tasks.

In terms of sound, it is equipped with two 1W speakers that do not sound bad, but lack bass, which reduces the impact of sound effects in games, such as explosions. The consolation is that we can turn the volume all the way up without any distortion.

Hardware and features of the ASUS ROG Strix G16 G614JI-N4007

Given your processor Intel Core i9-13980HX, we can expect great power for productivity and gaming tasks. It should be noted that this is Intel’s flagship Raptor Lake mobile processor, and it is equipped with 24 cores and 32 threads in total. The processor’s performance cores have a maximum turbo frequency of 5.6 GHz, while the efficiency cores run at a maximum of 4GHz. Asus has backed that processor with a competent RTX 4070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR6 video memory and ROG Boost to 140W.

When it comes to memory, the ASUS ROG Strix G16 G614JI-N4007 is equipped with 32GB of dual-channel DDR5 RAM (2x16GB) at a frequency of 4,800MHZ. In terms of storage, the device includes a 1TB capacity NVMe SSD.

Refrigeration system

If you’re wondering about its performance, well, it’s everything we can ask of a modern laptop and more. Things are starting strong in the Geekbench 5 benchmark, with el ROG Strix G16 delivering a single-core score of 2,067 and multi-core of 18,227. Likewise, its SSD is very fast and demonstrates speeds of 1,200Mbps in file transfer tests.

With that in mind, this is a laptop designed for gaming, so it’s no surprise that it can crush any modern AAA video game we throw at it. Going into details, hand in hand with its RTX 4070 with ROG Boost, the ASUS ROG Strix G16 G614JI-N4007 can move titles like Shadow of the Tomb Raider at over 100 frames per second with the graphics at maximum and in 1440p. In Cyberpunk 2077 and Alan Wake you can reach an average of 60FPS in high quality and with Ray Tracing activated, although you will need the help of DLSS in both cases.

Autonomy

For a gaming laptop, the ASUS ROG Strix G16 G614JI-N4007 has good autonomy, although it is still below what an Ultrabook of a similar price would offer. With that in mind, your 90WHrs battery can offer approximately 5-6 hours of use in power saving modealthough in gaming a laptop can rarely deliver more than 2 hours of play without being plugged in, and the ROG Strix G16 is no exception to the rule.

That said, it recharges relatively quickly, and in a matter of half an hour you can replenish 50% of its capacity using the supplied power adapter. As an incentive, it can be charged through its USB-C port, but only at 100W.

Connectivity

If we talk about wireless connectivity, this equipment obviously has Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, things get interesting is in terms of physical interfaces. To start, we will find a port USB-C with Thunderbolt 4followed by another USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 (DisplayPort and charging compatible). Naturally, it also has two USB 3.2 Type A ports, an HDMI output (2.1) and an RJ-45 socket (2.5GB). Finally, we will find a combined 3.5mm audio jack.
