After launching the updated version of its mainstream Intel-based ROG gaming laptops, Asus has now launched the successor to the ROG G series in India. Called the ROG Strix G Advantage Edition, the laptop only has a single model in India costing Rs 1,54,990 and will be available from August 11, 2021. The laptop will sell via Asus Exclusive Stores, Flipkart, Reliance Digital, Croma, and Vijay Sales.
The Strix G Advantage Edition is relying on the latest AMD internals. If you are wondering what the moniker “Advantage Edition” means, Asus says it refers to improved built quality and durability that comes courtesy of a new metal lid. “The stealthy original black colour has been paired with a red hinge cap and RGB lighting which can further be personalized to resonate with one’s gaming mood and needs. The new modernized design gave way to 85% screen-to-body ratio,” says Asus.
