This is not true. I have this exact laptop and have no problem running other drivers.
Like every gaming laptop. laugh out loud

I have the 6800s version of this and I am happy with it.
I am typing this message on this laptop now, and I love it!. I bought it open box a couple months ago when it was on a similar sale. Here are some thoughts on it:

In my opinion, this 14 laptop is the perfect balance of being portable (not too thick and heavy) and being usable to get work done on the built in screen, or to become a real powerhouse when plugged into an external monitor and external power.
For reference I can typically get 100+ FPS @ 1440p on Modern Warfare II on high settings with AMD FSR. It's amazing.
The CPU is incredible. Even faster than my company issued laptop with an Apple M1 Pro CPU in some operations (tested compiling Go code as one example)
The screen is gorgeous, high pixel density, and high refresh rate
The keyboard is really great! I love typing on it. I'd say it's as good, or maybe even a bit better than my current gen MacBook keyboard
The trackpad is good, but not MacBook quality. It's a great size and tracks well. Clicking feels like it leaves something to be desired, though tap to click works fine.
Battery life is great, if you manage the power settings correctly (Silent Mode + GPU Eco Mode).
The webcam is bad, unfortunately. To me, this is not a dealbreaker. I don't use the webcam on my personal machine much, and even if I do, I have an external webcam I can connect.
Windows Hello support is really nice for fast, easy login
Regarding drivers, you can (and I recommend) installing the drivers directly from AMD. The driver that shipped with mine included Raedeon Software that tended to use the dedicated GPU even in the background so it ate up power for no reason.


Yes, it does run hot while gaming. I'm pretty sure all gaming laptops do. The fans are pretty noisy while gaming in the Turbo power profile. I have gotten used to this though and don't mind it anymore. I wear headphones while gaming and it's not a problem. For best gaming performance, the laptop needs to be plugged into the power brick that comes with it. You can charge the laptop off of USB-C, but it's not enough power to let the CPU/GPU run at full throttle. There's a good amount of testing and a writeup that was done on that here: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/5...t-monitor/

You need to keep the lid open and the vents clear while gaming. I tried several different configurations, including some with the lid shut, and it can overheat and shut down while gaming. The air intake is on the bottom of the laptop and the lid hinge props it up to let more air in, rather than sitting flat on the desk while closed. The parts of the laptop that you need to use while gaming (WASD keys) stay cool enough to game comfortably for hours.

Hopefully this info is helpful to someone. I really love this little laptop and this is a great price for it, especially some of the open box prices. Cheers!

How is this model compared to the Strix G15 Advantage Edition in terms of performance?
I checked some review/benhmark and it seems like its comparable?? Even though this is much lighter/smaller.

By no metric should they be comparable, especially in gaming benchmarks, the G15 should be considerable more powerful

I looked into a few different Asus laptops from Best Buy in the past few weeks. They were all on sale up until yesterday and the prices were amazing. I checked the comments and a lot of the negative reviews were about the ram being slow, ssd being slow and too small for todays standards so be prepared to upgrade that and they said no mux switch causes problems with the GPU. And the QC was another big issue for Asus. I really wanted to pull the trigger but I'm not inclined enough to fix all the problems on my own so I had to pass unfortunately. Maybe next Black Friday. Great specs though.
