The TUF Gaming F15 is not to be confused with the TUF Gaming Dash F15, as the TUF Gaming F15 is a significantly more powerful machine, at least in terms of CPU performance, while being bulkier.

If you prefer an AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU with your GeForce RTX 3050, you can also opt for the refreshed ROG Strix G15/G17. The previous models started from RM5799, which makes the new starting price quite a bit more enticing. For some reason the battery is now smaller though at 56WHrs, down from 90WHr in the existing lineup of ROG Strix G15 and G17 models.

ROG Strix G15 2021 Electro Punk

The Electro Punk version that comes in neon pink is also now available, with a matching backpack, mousepad and mouse for RM4799.

ROG Zephyrus G14 – from RM4799

rog zephyrus g14 2021

The existing lineup of ROG Zephyrus G14 featuring the AMD Ryzen 5000 processors started from RM7699 with a GeForce RTX 3060, so these options should be great for those who want a portable gaming-capable machine. For those who do not find the AniMe Matrix exciting but still love the overall design of the ROG Zephyrus G14, the lowest configuration of the ROG Zephyrus G14 offers exactly that. The removal of the AniMe Matrix panel also makes for a 2mm thinner and 0.1kg lighter laptop, so that’s a bonus.
