Features of ASUS ROG Strix G16 and Strix G18
Previously, in 2022 the ROG Strix G-series line all used AMD processors. Meanwhile, the Intel version is in the ROG Strix Scar line. With the Intel Core processor option, this year’s Strix G-series line is even more complete.
ASUS ROG Strix G16 and Strix G18 come with the same design. The only difference between the two is the screen size of 16 inches and 18 inches. Both come with the ROG Nebula Display screen. There are two screen resolution options. Among them are QHD+ resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a refresh rate of 240 Hz. For a more economical version, it uses a Full HD + resolution screen with a refresh rate of 165 Hz.
The color accuracy of the screen supports 100% DCI-P3 color coverage for QHD+ panels. Meanwhile, FHD+ panels only support 100% sRGB color coverage. Even so, the two panels already support Dolby Vision, G-Sync and have received Pantone Validated certification.
