  • Ohh man, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 with RTX 2060 is just a beast. I have a new HP OMEN, it is not bad. I would say it is rather good, however it is not even close to the level the Zephyrus has got. I actually also wanted a rog zephyrus back when i bought my laptop, however i did not have enough money for it, so i didn't really know which laptop should i buy. So i called for the help of a gadgetguide portal, and they recommened me the new omen as the best for all of my requirements. Well, to be honest i am even more than just pleased with it.

  • Hello!!


    I would also like your opinion about the laptop purchase I am about to do.

    I am thinking of buying Asus TUF Gaming FA506IV Laptop


    Specifications


    Display 15.6" Full HD 1920 x 1080

    Processor AMD Ryzen 9 4900H 3.0 GHz

    RAM 32 GB DDR4

    Disk 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD

    GPU NVIDIA RTX 2060 6 GB


    I find the price very attractive also! What do you think? Thank you in advance!!

    Not a bad choice at all! :) If you plan to use VR in the future though, you may want to go for a more capable GPU. If not, then you're good to go already.

    Thanks for the quick reply Demian. I am just wondering whether I will have problems with the real time rendering in high resolutions. I am not currently interested in VR as I also have a desktop with a RTX 2070.

    The RTX 2060, even in a laptop will be capable - you may want to set the rendering quality to High or even Medium though, then you should in turn also have a fluent Enscape experience.

    Hi Demian as your response put me a bit into thought I have two more choices in a price suitable for me.

    Haha, well, if you have the budget to spare, Option C is of course the best you could get. 1TB of hard drive space is also more future proof than just 512GB, and the RTX 2070 is definitely more capable than the 2060. :)

  • from the selection Defo C I have revision II and it works amazing, and the 17" screen isa deal breaker for me , the 51 inch is no good for working on in cad.


    Also in 3 months the landscape will change again with the RTX 3 series making its way to laptopt. Just food for thought.


    Option B is probably a MAX Q card which sounds better but is actually an inferior model, we have the G5 and it runs really hot you, can feel it coming through the keyboard and if running enscape the keyboard is untouchable in some areas , please stay away from this.
