ROG Strix GA15DH Gaming Desktop PC with AMD Ryzen 7 3800X
ROG Strix GA15DH-AH772 is a high-end gaming desktop computer with the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X processor, RTX 2070 Super graphics card, 512GB PCIe Solid State Drive and 1TB HDD hard drive, 16GB DDR4 memory, Windows 10 Home operating system and a vaerity of modern connectivity ports.
The quarter two of 2019 release AMD Ryzen 7 3800X is an eight-core processor (32M cache) that works at the speeds between 3.9GHz and 4.5GHz with the turbo max frequency. And with the hyperthreading function you have 8 cores running parallel at 16 threads. The typical TDP- Thermal Design Power is 105 watts. It has an impressive average CPU Passmark benchmark score of 23373 at the moment and is capable of handling all the tasks you throw at it, for both gaming and work purposes.
The dedicated NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super graphics card with the 8GB GDDR6 dedicated memory has a video card benchmark score of 18094 at the time of this review and should let you play all the latest demanding AAA games at high to very high settings and resolutions and some in 4K. It performs better than the GTX 1080 Ti and you can expect the smoothest and clearest graphics that will really make a difference to your games. It also offers you plenty of power to let you edit complex multimedia do your other creative work. ROG Strix GA15DH has the adjustable Asus Aura Sync RGB lighting on the chassis and the EMI-reducing see-through side panel.
The cooling inside is enhanced with the Flow Tech Ventilation for the best system performance level. It comes with a carry handle at the top for you to move it easily in and out of your house. And there is a side hook for your gaming headset. It offers superior gaming experience with pretty decent cooling. 16GB DDR4 SDRAM at 3200MHz is a good amount of memory for multitasking power and you can upgrade it if you need to. For local storage you have the fast 512GB Solid State Drive and a regular 1TB SATA hard drive at 7200rpm. So this should be plenty for many users unless they are saving lots of heavy games.
For connectivity you have the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth, an Ethernet RJ-45 connector, USB 3.2 Type-C port, a USB 3.2 Type-A port, a headphone and a microphone at the front and 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, an HDMI output, a Line In, a Line Out and a microphone at the rear. There is no Optical Drive if you’ll be playing games from DVDs and you’d need to use a USB or Bluetooth one. It weighs 24.3 pounds and measures 42.1 x 7.3 x 19.6 inches and will have a permanent spot under or on your desk anyway.
Aura Sync accents adds nicely to the appearance of this great computer with the nice details like the headphone hook on the side. In the package you’ll find the tower desktop PC, a power cord, a basic keyboard and mouse combo and a quick user guide with the warranty card. It comes with a 500W 80 PLUS (GOLD) power supply that is good enough for the processor and the graphics card. ROG Strix GA15DH is a powerful and quiet, plug and play type computer that lets you max out the settings at your games and still get above 60 fps. This hot new release tower gaming desktop is also offered with the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti graphics card at a significantly lower price. And some of the reviews and ratings at Amazon.com actually belong to that version.
