Asus G14 Recenzja – 8 Rdzeń 4900HS w 14"?!
To. Ive got one of the highest specced G14 configurations: Dostępne. Tam, nowy AMD Ryzen 9 4900Procesor HS, który ma 8 rdzeni i 16 threads at a 35 Watt. Tdp. Theres Nvidia RTX 2060 Max Q (maks., grafiki, 16gb of memory in dual channel and the memory runs at DDR4 3200, one of the benefits of the new Ryzen platform. Tam, dysk SSD NVMe M.2 o pojemności 1 TB do przechowywania i 14 1080p 120Hz screen with FreeSync. Do łączności sieciowej. Its got Wifi 6 i Bluetooth 5. jednak, theres no ethernet here so youll need a dongle. Jeśli tego potrzebujesz., The G14 is available in quite a few different configurations. You can find updated prices linked in the description.. The G14 is available in either moonlight white, which I have here or eclipse gray, which I showed in my CES coverage. Its made out of magnesium alloy, and this includes the lid interior and bottom. Overall build quality felt good and there were no sharp corners or edges. Dowolnym miejscu. The G14 is available with and without the AniMe Matrix display.. Zasadzie, the AniMe Matrix display has 1215 LEDs on the lid, which can be controlled in software with different effects, including custom, animations or even email or battery notifications.. Niestety, my review unit doesnt have it so I havent been able to test it out. Tutaj. ASUS list the weight of the G14 as 1.6kg or 1.7kg, with the anime matrix lid.. I dont have the fancy lid though mine was still close to 1.
7kg. The 180w power. Brick is on the smaller size compared to others and increases the total weight to 2.2kg.. The dimensions are on the slimmer side, nawet dla 14 laptop do gier., The G14 with AniMe matrix lid is 2mm thicker than this. As those LEDs take some space.. The smaller footprint means the side screen. Bezels are just 8.5mm thick.. The G14 is available with two 14 screen options: a 1440p 60Hz IPS Level panel or the 1080p 120Hz IPS Level panel, which is what my unit has. Honestly at 14 inches for gaming. I think the 1080p panel will be the way to go. 1440P at 14. Inches will probably be less important for most users unless you really need that extra screen real estate.. Both panel options do have FreeSync, chociaż, with no MUX switch and the FreeSync range for the 1080p panel was 48 to 120Hz.. Both displays come calibrated from the factory and are pantone validated. Ive tested the 1080p panel with the Spyder 5 i dostał 96 z sRGB 67 z NTSC 73 adobergb i 73 z DCI P3. Fair results for a gaming laptop. Brightness was fair at 3' nits in the center at 100, z 9101 współczynnik kontrastu. So quite nice results for a gaming laptop but expect different results with the 1440p option. Backlight bleed appeared minimal to my eyes. W tym najgorszym scenariuszu, it was a little patchy towards the bottom right, no issues when viewing darker content, ale będzie się to różnić w zależności od paneli.
. There were no issues opening it up with one finger. It felt fairly well balanced.. Było trochę flex ekranu, gdy celowo próbuje go przenieść. Despite the metallic build the lid isnt too thick, but no issues during normal use., The AniMe matrix version might be a bit sturdier here as its 2mm thicker.. The hinges seem pretty sturdy. They need to be given they lift up the rear of the machine.. The exterior of the hinges is plastic, but this covers the metal mechanism.. When you open it up, the screen goes back 140 degrees and doing so raises the rear of the machine up 15mm.. This has three advantages: it puts the keyboard on a slight incline, which is generally better for typing. The speakers underneath arent pressed against the desk and sound better and more air can get in to help with cooling. Z otwartą pokrywą. There are a couple of rubber feet on the back which come into contact with the desk.. I didnt find it to be slippery on a flat surface, jak inni, with a similar design, but this may introduce chassis flex as it means there are less contact points between the base and the desk.. The flex was only minor when pushing down hard with a bit more right at the back in the center as expected, but absolutely no issues during normal use.. I had no issues using the G14 on my lap. I need to really put the screen right back before the back corners start to dig into my legs.
It felt pretty comfortable for me anyway., Even with heavy stress tests running it didnt feel too hot. Dobrze, the middle was hot to the touch, but that area wasnt coming into contact with it sitting on my legs., Like many other recent laptops from ASUS theyve decided to leave the camera out, so youll have to get an external camera if you need one., Although theres No camera its still got microphones, i tak to brzmią.. The chiclet keyboard is missing, some standard keys like home end page up and down which might be annoying for some programmers and the like. But personally I never noticed any limitations during my own use.. Oh and no numpad either. Its got 1.7mm of key travel. I measured the actuation force of letter keys at 58g and overall, Lubiłem pisać, with it heres how it sounds to give you an idea of what to expect.. The keyboard only has white backlighting, no fancy. Rgb here. Wszystkie klawisze i funkcje kluczy pomocniczych są podświetlone. jednak, I thought the coverage was a bit patchy and suboptimal.. The brightness can be adjusted between three different levels or turned off completely with the function and arrow keys.. There are four additional shortcut keys above the keyboard on the left, co, let you adjust the volume mute, the microphone or open the ASUS Armoury crate software, which is the control panel for the system.. The power button is over on the right and has a fingerprint scanner built in which I found to work quite fast for unlocking the machine.
. It will actually cache your fingerprint when you power it on and present it to Windows. Once the operating system has loaded to the login screen, which is kind of cool, it means you just press the power button once to turn it on, and it will use the fingerprint to log in automatically.. If there are multiple user accounts, the users fingerprint will determine which account gets logged into.. The precision touchpad physically clicks down anywhere when pressed and it worked extremely well and was smooth to the touch, probably one of the best and most accurate feeling touchpads Ive used.. There are two front facing 0.7w tweeters towards either side just below the keyboard and two 2.5w speakers on the bottom right down the front corners.. I thought they sounded excellent easily. The best laptop speakers Ive listened to in a long time. They were clear at louder. Volumes had some bass were loud enough at maximum volume and the latencymon results looked ok.. Speaking of sounds. It makes this one by default on boot.. You can disable this through the Armoury, crate software or BIOS though. Odciski palców i brud. Dont really show up on the silver finish after a few days of heavy use. Mine looked fine, though this will probably be more obvious on the black version. Po lewej stronie od tyłu tam, odpowietrznik powietrza, wejście zasilania, HDMI 2.0b output, which was not wired directly to the Nvidia GPU USB 3.2 Port Gen2 typu C z portem DisplayPort 1.
4 Support and power delivery so up to two external 4K displays at once, następnie gniazdo combo audio 3,5 mm, which sounded fine with headphones. On the right from the front theres a USB 3.2 Port Gen2 typu C, dwa USB 3.2 Gen1 Type A ports, another air exhaust vent On this side too, and Kensington lock., The back has air exhaust vents, which are both angled down and up.. The idea of the top vents is that air is exhausted directly up rather than onto the screen with the lid open.. The front is all completely smooth: Nic. Tutaj., Despite not having the AniMe Matrix display, there are still holes in my lid.. I stuck a pin inside to get a rough idea of how deep they are and Id guess less than a millimeter, but that may change with the LED lid.. I can imagine dust and dirt getting into these after a while. Niestety, I dont have mine long enough to check that out.. W przeciwnym razie, the lid also has a shiny, ROG plaque thing down. The bottom corner. Underneath just has some holes for air intake towards the back half.. The bottom panel can be removed very easily by taking out 14 phillips head screws.. The 4 screws down the front are shorter than the rest and the screw down the front right corner doesnt fully come out. It pushes the panel up to aid opening.. The inside of the bottom panel appears to have a metal heat shield, chociaż, jak widzieliśmy, the bottom can get quite warm in the center under heavy load.
. Po wejściu do środka, weve got the battery down the bottom single M.2 slot. For storage on the left and single memory, Gniazdo, just right of the center. Ive got an 8gb stick installed in the single SODIMM slot, so my G14 has 8gb of DDR4 3200 memory soldered to the motherboard, which cannot be upgraded.. Wifi also appears to be soldered to the board.. The G14 sells with up to 32gb, which means theres an option with 16gb soldered to the board, so make sure you buy with this in mind as you cant upgrade it. Później. Youll need a single stick installed to take advantage of dual channel.. The M.2 slot appears to support 4 lanes of PCIe according to HWinfo.. The G14 is powered by a 76wh battery. Testowałem go z jasnością ekranu na 50 aplikacje w tle, wyłączone i oświetlenie klawiatury. Off., Podczas oglądania filmów z YouTube, trwało to przez 6 i 10 minutes with the screen set to 120Hz and optimus enabled., Podczas gry w Wiedźmina 3 z średnimi ustawieniami i zwiększeniem baterii nvidias 30 FPS. Bateria trwała godzinę i 36 Minut.. W tym momencie, liczba klatek na sekundę 13 FPS i nie był już użyteczny. jednak, nadal miała 10 charge remaining and lasted for an hour and 49 minuty. If you include this slower state.. The G14 also supports Type C charging with the left port, not the right one though so you can carry a smaller charger or battery bank with you to support lower powered tasks.
ASUS, say a 65w Type C charger will charge from 0 do 60 w 60 minutes Or a full charge in 176 minutes so slower than using the 180w power brick but good to have as an option if you dont need max performance, its perfect for light work. Now lets find out how hot the G14 gets and see if this causes any issues To performance. The ASUS Armoury Crate software lets you select different performance modes which, od najniższego do najwyższego, są ciche osiągi i turbo., Turbo mode, overclocks, the GPU core by 100MHz and GPU memory by 120MHz.. The manual option on the end lets you push this GPU overclock further and also modify fan speed.. When I test the manual option in the upcoming graphs, Ive left the overclock at stock, but boosted the fans to maximum.. There are no fan curves for customizing. All you can do is control either the CPU or GPU fan independently between different percentage levels.. Niestety, w tej chwili, theres no undervolting support for Ryzen 4000, at least none of the options in the software or BIOS indicated that this was possible. Heres. A quick look through the BIOS which you can get into by pressing F2 during boot. Wewnątrz. Tam są 5 rury cieplne w sumie, z 3 shared between the processor and graphics, along with two self cleaning. Fanów. Powietrze przychodzi od dołu, possibly through the keyboard too, and is exhausted out the left and right rear corners and out the back.
Termika została przetestowana z 21 stopień Celsjusza. Pokój ambientowy, temperatury. Wyniki bezczynne w dół. Dno było w porządku. Najgorszy przypadek. Testy warunków skrajnych zostały wykonane za pomocą testu warunków skrajnych procesora Aida64, z procesorem tylko sprawdzone i benchmark Heaven na max ustawienia. W tym samym czasie i gry został przetestowany z Watch Dogs 2, jak uważam, że do korzystania z dobrego połączenia procesora i grafiki., Począwszy od testów warunków skrajnych w trybie cichym, the GPU was thermal throttling but thats just because this mode limits the fan, speed as You'Ll hear later. Stepping up to performance mode removed the thermal throttle on the GPU, and there was no change to the CPU temperature.. The CPU gets hotter with turbo mode enabled. jednak, we can bring it back down by setting the fan to maximum speed and, if youre willing to use a cooling pad were able to get a nice 10 stopień. Reduction.. The gaming results follow a similar pattern but were in general, a little cooler when compared to those worst case, stress tests.. These are the clock speeds for the same tests.. The silent results were interesting in the stress test. The GPU was thermal throttling, so the CPU is able to boost up higher. Następnie, podczas faktycznej gry, we see the GPU running higher as thermals werent, an issue in this specific title. Tam, a fair difference in CPU, clock speeds between performance and turbo modes based on the temperature results. This mode may cap out at 90 degrees its hard to say as hardware info doesnt appear to be updated yet to report CPU thermal throttling.
Performance continues to improve as we improve the cooling though.. These speeds look pretty good, almost 4.1GHz on all 8 cores best case in this game.. These are the average power levels reached during these same tests., Silent mode seems to primarily cap the CPU power limit to 15 watts and interestly the GPU power levels, Nie. All that much below the 65 watt limit of the RTX 2060 Max Q (maks., so gaming at silent, may be possible. Well look next.! Otherwise we can see the 4900HS is able to run at its 35 watt power limit just by enabling turbo mode, which is great to see its even close to full power, w tym najgorszym przypadku, stress test prior to improving cooling. Ive tested Shadow of the Tomb Raider With the games benchmark tool with these different performance modes to see what differences they actually make. Silent was still around 60 FPS średnio, so gaming with quieter fans is possible. Tymczasem, we were able to get small improvements by improving the cooling in turbo mode. W procesorze. Heavier titles like watch dogs 2. During the previous testing. It was a bit laggy in silent, though for GPU focussed games, chociaż, jak widzieliśmy, the GPU still performs quite well., I attempted to run the stress tests with the lid closed. jednak, the laptop would put itself to sleep after a few minutes like this, when the CPU got to around 95.6 stopni. So I guess it gets too hot and goes to sleep rather than a hard shut off.
. The sleep reason in the event viewer just notes. The reason as application API with no further details. Now lets take a look at CPU only performance. So when the discrete 2060 Max Q graphics are idle., Ive run the Aida64 CPU stress test with the four default options checked, and we can see that outside of silent mode theres, not too much of a change to clock speeds. jednak, things do get better as cooling improves.. When we look at the temperatures, though theyre no, where near thermal throttling, so it appears that lower temperatures slightly boosts performance, which is a little odd given on average. They were all sitting at the 35 limit mocy watowej. During this test. In a CPU only workload like Cinebench, the 4900HS kills it.. There was less of an improvement with better cooling observed in this workload compared to prior tests with the GPU active. Jego wartość. Remembering these are averages over 5 Uruchamia. We can see how results lower over time between these tests once the boost period ends., Even by the time it's no longer boosting and settles at 35 Watów. The performance is still great. Ive also compared the Cinebench results from the G14, with the other 8 podstawowe laptopy. Ive testowane., Szczerze mówiąc, the results are quite impressive when we remember those other i9 laptops are running with far higher power limits and are all much thicker machines, 17 inch ones in most cases. 3000 points is best case for the i7 9750H and the Ryzen 9 jest około 1000 points faster.
Ive got the best Ryzen 7 3750H from last gen down the bottom, just to give an idea of how far theyve come. Heres a screenshot of what the package power looks like over time with blender running.. We can see that its running around 60w for the first few minutes, then after a while, it eventually drops down to the sustained 35w limit, so you can actually get some nice performance out of the 4900HS at those higher limits., As we just saw the temperatures of The CPU werent that hot at least compared to when gaming, with an active, GPU load at the same time. So I think if they wanted, they could boost it for longer and maybe well see this in other Ryzen 4000 Laptopy.. If you want to see how the 4900HS compares with other processors, like Intels 8, core 9880H check out Tims video on the Hardware Unboxed channel, linked in the description. Heres, jak to wygląda w obszarach, w których będziesz rzeczywiście dotykać bezczynnie, it was below the typical 30 Degrees Celsius, I usually see in most laptops., With the stress tests going in silent mode its on the warmer side, with some of the keys in the middle feeling, Gorące, which is expected, given the fans are quiet., Stepping up to performance mode and its a little cooler. Teraz, while also performing better as the fan, prędkość, Zwiększa. Turbo mode was similar, maybe a degree or two cooler in the hot spots, with WASD still cool as air must be blowing through.
With manual mode. So the fan at maximum speed its a little cooler again. Worst case right up. The back can get hot to the touch, but you dont really need to touch there.. Lets have a listen to how loud the fans get during these same tests. Na biegu jałowym. Było cicho, Jednak, the fan was making an odd sort of sound, not sure if its just my unit. W trybie cichym, its still on the quieter side and as we saw earlier, playing GPU bound games was still possible. Jak to. Performance was a bit louder still granted quieter when compared to most other gaming laptops, Ive tested and turbo mode was still under 50 Decybeli, then maximum was just a little louder. Nadal.. Ogólny, I thought the thermals were alright yeah. It can get hot when you max it out in turbo mode before the fan speed increases. jednak, youve got the option of running the fans faster to improve results, but if you want to take things to the next level, a cooling pad helps quite a bit here.. Just dont forget this is a thinner, 14 inch machine with an 8 core processor inside.. Next lets find out just how well the G14 performs in games. Ive tested with turbo mode enabled for best results which, as a reminder, overclocks the graphics, trochę. W Battlefield, 5. Ive got the G14 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines., No rodzaj rodzaju. Its hard to compare apples to apples here, jak wierzę, że jest to pierwszy laptop do gier rzeczywiście funkcji Nvidia, RTX 2060 Max Q (maks., grafika lub, co najmniej, is the first Ive Been able to get my hands on.
, Biorąc pod uwagę, że działa z 65 limit Wat. Wygląda na to, że 80 Watt 1660 Systemy Ti mogą go prześcignąć. Jego prawdziwe blisko Scar II z non RTX 2060, though so thats interesting and average FPS is similar to the Y540. With i7 and 1660 TI, chociaż, the 1 low from the 4900HS was lower compared to the Intel i7 machines granted, to było lepsze niż AMDs poprzednich laptopów opartych na 3750H.. Oto wyniki far cry 5 z ustawieniami ultra w wbudowanym benchmarku. Tym razem. The 1 niska wydajność wyglądała całkiem nieźle z 4900HS, ale znowu wydaje się, że średnia FPS jest niższa w porównaniu do wyższych opcji grafiki mocy. Its really hard to fairly compare the 4900HS due to the 2060 Max Q so well have to wait until I get Some other laptops that feature that CPU, ale z inną grafiką, uczciwego porównania.. Oto wyniki najeźdźcy Shadow of the Tomb, z wbudowanym punktem odniesienia przy najwyższych ustawieniach.. W tym teście, liczba klatek na sekundę była bliższa tym, które 1660 Laptopy Ti, co było interesujące, tak uczciwe wyniki z G14 tutaj, biorąc pod uwagę niższą 65 watowy procesor graficzny. Ill post, my usual video showing gaming performance in 20 games at all setting levels tomorrow so Make sure youre subscribed for that. Well check out how well the Vega graphics perform in an upcoming video too. Illinois. Also note that I had no issues at all in terms of stability.
At any point, I think the issue with other Ryzen based laptops generally stems from Radeon driver issues, so the Ryzen processor, with Nvidia graphics here, pracowała bezawaryjnie. Ive używane Adobe Premiere wyeksportować jeden z moich filmów przeglądu laptopa w 4K. Compared to the old 3750H machines up The top the G14 is completing half as fast, which kind of makes sense, as the 4900HS does have double the core count. In this particular test, though its not quite as fast as many of the Intel options as those make use of quicksync here.. In terms of Linux support, I was able to boot into Ubuntu 19.10 with safe graphics mode and the touchpad sound wifi and bluetooth worked fine.. The keyboard was ok too minus the lighting which I couldnt enable. So it needs software to function.. Teraz, dla narzędzi analizy porównawczej, Testowany Ive, Heaven Valley i Superposition z Unigine, jak również Firestrike Timespy i Port Royal z 3DMark tylko pauza. Film, jeśli chcesz uzyskać szczegółowe spojrzenie na te wyniki. Tutaj, are the results from SPECviewperf. Should you want to compare the results against other machines in more professional 3D workloads. Ive used Crystal Disk Mark to test the storage and the 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD was performing alright.. Some material online seems to indicate that its a PCIe 3.0 2 lane slot. jednak, the SSD has 4 lane support and Hardware Info seems to indicate 4 lane support too.

At the time of recording prior to launch. I dont actually have too much information. The G14 with same specs Ive tested here, is listed at 1450, USD at best buy in the US.. Tutaj w Australii. We were told it would go for about 2500 AUD and if you convert AUD to USD and remove our tax, it ends up being very similar to the best buy listing which, if accurate, seems like quite good value for this level of CPU performance.. Jeśli. Just after best gaming performance, though you could spend less on an 80 Watt, GTX 1660 Ti based laptop. jednak, it will also be larger and to be fair, the 65 Watt 2060 max q could still handle any game. I threw at it but yeah youre, paying a premium for the smaller G14 as expected.. Mając to wszystko na uwadze. Lets conclude by looking at the good and bad aspects of the G14 gaming laptop.. I havent tested all that many 14 gaming laptops its a much less common size, probably due to the difficulties involved with getting good specs in a smaller area, but ASUS have pulled it off with the G14.. The new Ryzen 9 4900HS wasnt too far behind other Intel based i9 systems that also have 8 Rdzeń 16 thread processors, especially when you consider all the Intel machines are physically larger, but also run well above the 35 watts of the Ryzen chip.. The GPU performance was alright again, especially once we take the 14 inch form factor into consideration.
. The smaller size makes it quite portable, and this is helped out by the smaller than normal power. Cegły. Type C charging is also an option for lower power, drawing tasks. If you need something more portable, this is a nice to have feature that I wish others would start adding. Battery life was pretty decent, chociaż, given the size results were above average compared to many others., Its great that we get FreeSync and that 1440p is an option For those that want it, Inaczej, the 1080p 120Hz panel that Ive tested here is a better option for gamers, and I thought the colours brightness and contrast were pretty decent.. The build quality was above average, considering the smaller side. Cała sprawa to stop magnezu, z czystym wykończeniem.. There was some flex to it due to the lift design. jednak, it wasnt an issue during normal use and the advantages this provides, such as improved cooling, an incline for typing and some of the best laptop speakers. Ive ever heard seems to make it worthwhile.. The IO was pretty fair for a smaller machine, though no Thunderbolt or ethernet here.. It was easy to get inside the single memory slot was a little disappointing, but its probably a space constraint to fit two. At least it still runs in dual channel. Youll just have to make sure you buy it so that the soldered memory is enough going into the future.. I also didnt really like the patchy back lighting of the keyboard.
It just wasnt very evenly lit. Not having a camera, may also be a limit for some, so youll need to look into an external one. Jeśli tego potrzebujesz., The G14 can get hotter than Im sure many of you were expecting. jednak, I have no issues with this personally.. If a laptop has thermal headroom available, you can bet its going to get used to boost performance. Just remember, we do have an 8 core processor with decent graphics in a smaller chassis here.. If you want to run it cooler or quieter, youve got the option of doing so by adjusting the fan speed. Compared to most other laptops. The fan noise was quieter until you max it out.. Wszystkie rzeczy brane pod uwagę, I think the G14 is offering impressive levels of performance in a smaller package, especially for those who need raw CPU power. Its able to hang with other thicker and larger machines with the more power hungry, i9. Overall theres a lot to like here with not too many down sides. I can see why so many of you just couldnt, wait for this review, so I hope it was useful.. Let me know what you thought about the ASUS Zephyrus G 14 gaming laptop down in the comments or if youve got questions on anything. I missed. Im looking forward to testing more Ryzen 4000 laptops in future.
