The base model of G14 has an incredible processor, but the GTX 1650 won't be able to push heavy graphics games to the limit, so if you want to run games on very high or ultra settings, you must go for higher versions of G14(2021).
ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 - Price - 1,39,990
This is the best variant as we are getting the 8 Core processor, RTX 3060, which is much faster than the GTX 1650, and also we have 1 TB SSD and 16 gigs of onboard Ram. There will not be many benefits going with the higher variant with 5900Hs, but the price difference is enormous.
The graphics card is NVIDIA RTX 3060, 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM, Boost Clock Speed up to 1382 MHz at 60W TGP + 20W with Dynamic Boost.

The laptop is no slouch when it comes to battery performance, it offers close to 10 hours of battery life and also comes with fast charging support (180 watts).
Impressive…. who wants One….
I think it is the best portable laptop that you can use for anything from gaming to office work to video editing.
Weighing 1.6 Kg, it is easy to carry and even use when placed on your lap. There is hardly anything available like the Asus G14 in the market.
I will still prefer the G14 considering the monstrous AMD Ryzen processors that offer better performance than the Intel rivals.
Heating And High Temps - Asus G14
The only downside with these laptops is excessive heat. The reported temps are close to 90 degrees Celcius for the internal parts, which also makes the keyboard and the display area hot.
If you are gaming for long, an air-conditioned room and a good laptop fan more fantastic may help, or you can look at under-volts the processor or even disable the Turbo boost to ensure less heat.
Since Asus has packed enormous power in this thin and small form factor laptop, heat dissipation is a problem for the higher-end variants.
