More Features – Fingerprint Scanner, Audio, and Charging

Also, it comes with a fingerprint scanner to work with Windows Hello

The laptop has got a good sound output as there are bottom-firing speakers as well as tweeters at the top. We are also getting a smart AMP and support for Dolby Atmos to make sure the gaming and movies sound better.

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 at 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.

Other good Choices are Asus Zephyrus G15, HP Omen, and the Lenovo Legion.

I will still prefer the G14 considering the monstrous AMD Ryzen processors that offer better performance than the Intel rivals.

Performance Beast

The 14 Inch G14 comes with the most powerful AMD Ryzen 4900s Processor that offers upto 8 Cores and 16 threads that makes it the most powerful 14-inch laptop in the world.

The Ryzen 9 4900Hs is faster than the latest Intel Core i7 H series processors and even the Core i9 processors. Also, it is made from the cutting edge 7 Nm manufacturing process that makes it more energy-efficient than the Intel processors that are still using the 10 Nm process.

The laptop offers more power and also generates less heat in comparison to the Intel offerings.

Also, we are getting up to Nvidia RTX 2060 MaxQ graphics card that is sufficient to run most of the modern AAA titles with ease.

Apart from the RTX 2060 MaxQ, the laptop is also available with the Nvidia GTX 1660Ti, 1650Ti, or the more humble GTX 1650. Asus is also offering Ryzen 5 4600H and the Ryzen 7 4800Hs as options to the buyers.

You can get up to 16 GB of DDR4, 3200 Mhz, pre-installed RAM. Notably, there is an empty ram slot where you can add upto 16 GB of more Ram if you want to.

Display, Storage, and Design

The Asus G14 comes with 2 display options:

  • 2K (Quad HD Display) 2560*1440 pixels with a 60 Hz refresh rate.
  • Or you can choose a Full HD Panel (1920*1080) pixels with a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Both the display panels come with 100% sRGB color gamut that means it offers high color accuracy and is even ideal for content creators.

In addition to that, the G14 comes with up to 1 TB of PCI-E SSD which significantly faster in comparison to the SATA-based SSD’s.

There is also an ergonomic backlit keyboard that comes with decent key travel.

For connectivity, there is a USB TYPE C 3.2 port, USB Type-A 3.2, HDMI, and 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Let’s Check out the Specs, Price, and Details of the Variants Launched in India

Asus Rog G14 Base Model (GA401IH-HE042TS)

  • Ryzen 5 4600HS – 6 Core and 12 Threads with 3.0 GHz Base Clock and 4.0 Ghz Boost Clock Speed, 8 MB Cache)
  • 8 GB DDR4 3200 MHZ RAM, expandable upto 24 GB
  • 512 GB NVMe SSD
  • GTX 1650 Ti With GDDR6 4 GB VRAM.
  • 14 Inch Display, 300 Nits, 120 Hz, 100% sRGB
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 76 Whr Battery Capacity
  • Price Rs. 82,990

It is the base version that comes without the Anime Matrix. It is ideal for most productivity tasks, Video Editing, Content creation, and even office tasks if you have some demanding Apps that need a good CPU horsepower.

The Nvidia GTX 1650 Ti is a decent graphics card and can run most of the AAA titles well but can’t expect it to max out the graphics.

One major benefit of this model is less heat due to slightly low-powered components than the higher versions.

ASUS ROG G14 – RTX 2060 MaxQ AND RYZEN 4900 HS

The Asus Rog G14 with the RTX 2060 MAXQ AND RYZEN 4900 HS is now available for 1,39,900 and even in 2021, it is an excellent product. 

It has 16 GB of ram and 1 TB NVme SSD. Also, it comes with the Anime Matrix panel.

Both the 4800 Hs and the 4900 Hs versions are incredibly powerful and easily great choices for Gamers or Content creators looking for a fast portable solution.

Heating And High Temps

The only downside with these laptops is excessive heat. The reported temps are close to 90 degrees Celcius for the internal parts that also makes the keyboard and the display area hot.

If you are gaming for long an air-conditioned room and a good laptop fan cooler may help or you can look at under-volting the processor or even disabling the Turbo boost to ensure less heat.

Considering that Asus has packed enormous power in this thin and small form factor laptop, heat dissipation is a problem for the higher-end variants.

  1. I was planning on taking Zepherus G14 and the device is primarily going to be used as a workhorse. I also plan to study a bit of programming and playing Forza Horizon 4 on it.

    Which model would you recommend for my use case? Should i go for the 4600HS with 1650Ti or 4800HS with 1660Ti Max-Q?
    I’m kinda worried about heating since i’ve read about it at multiple places already but i couldnt find another laptop within my budget which also had a good color accurate display.

    • Hi Anand,

      It is a tough decision. For your work even the 4600/1650Ti model is more than enough. You can also increase the ram to 16 gigs.

      But it depends if you want to keep it for 5 to 7 years. then may be can get the higher version.
      If you plan on replacing it after 3-5 years get the base variant.
