No, you need to do your own research. I just don't want to tell you something wrong and am not 100% sure about the 6800s. But allot of the rtx cards are so voltage limited that it's ridiculous. Even reducing the power settingings and underclocking it, it may still be beyond the power envelope of the 3060 your comparing it to.

I'm just saying I'm honestly skeptical of this.

The 6800m that I got for my GF is almost completely voltage unlocked and everything is customizable... I can run it straight up to 100 Celsius in a matter of minutes with the fans blaring or set it to game for hours below 70 Celsius with the fans silent.

We game all day and watch TV sometimes on the weekend.... The rtx performance is amazing, for about an hour.... After I programmed the voltage stages and the fan curve her 6800m is embarrassing my legion 5 pro with a full power 3080(because it still thermal throttles) in all day gaming sessions, it's not even close.

I'm completely brand agnostic, I have a Intel/Nvidia desktop build. And tend to favor Nvidia/Intel more in desktops.

Most of us don't just run a benchmark, or game for 45 minutes.

I've never seen a laptop in real life usage that compares to the g15 strix ae I got my girlfriend and I just ordered another one for myself. The screen is excellent, I like it even better then the Lenovo high brightness one, the Lenovo screen is better then most, but I never used full brightness or HDR on it because it made everything look terrible and washed out and made the color accuracy even worse, the settings I use? The Asus screen is clearly better and has better color accuracy and contrast. It's a very high quality ips screen close to OLED levels.

I'll try to find you the YouTube video showing a real life comparison of the g15 screen vs the legion 5 pro.

The metal feels like metal and the plastic is so high quality that it almost feels better then metal, you can open it with one hand easily but there is more screen wobble then I would like, if you really intentionally put pressure on it and try to twist it .

And you no what? She uses it for school, like it's not even a gaming laptop, the battery lasts for 7-10 hours depending on what settings you click on, and it does it all automatically when you unplug it. it's not comparable to a modern ultra portable but it's pretty damn portable and thin, smaller and lighter then a textbook for sure.

And also, the build quality and layout is excellent, everything is easy to access. The ram, the SSD slots, the battery, the screen.

I feel completely confident in replacing the screen, or battery, or accessing things and repasting it or whatever.

Is there a reason I can't seem to find similar configuration for these in Black? I'm seeing them all over youtube but never on sale. It's always the white one.

I'm in the same boat. Bought the 6700S version when the 6800S version lost its discount after Black Friday. I didn't pick up the laptop yet so I can just cancel without much hassle and get the 6800S version. Wondering if it's worth it as well to get the 6800S version.

I think the white model is the only unit available in North America. Could be wrong though.

10% increase in GPU performance over 6700s.

I really doubt this would be an issue, the AMD chips are more power efficient and cooler at comparable wattages across the board.

And you have allot of control over thier power draw and can set them to run at low wattage. They are generally not as power limited as the rtx ones. Maybe it's running at maximum tdp? 🤷

I can set my 6800m to run at anything from like 60-150 watts and that's the higher power 12gb chip.

I don't know enough about this specific model, but it's worth looking into.

gotcha but if i have to lower the wattage then i might as well get a lower spec model for a cheaper price.. I also read there are quality issues with the screen, sounding more like a hit or miss .

I bought the 6700s version for $1299 yesterday knowing this sale would come back.

Thermals and noise are always concerns in a 14" laptop, and the 6700s has slightly lower wattage so I went with that one. Both GPUs are in the same ballpark, it's not like a game will be unplayable on one and not the other.
