ASUS Scar 15 Ryzen Gaming Laptop Tested In 13 Games!


I’ve examined the new Ryzen based ASUS Scar 15 video gaming laptop in 13 games at all setup degrees to reveal you just how it does, and I’ve additionally compared it versus a bunch of various other gaming laptop computers so you can see what the distinctions are. These are the specifications of my Scar 15, so I’ve got one of the higher specced options with 16 gig RTX 3080 graphics and Ryzen 9 5900HX cpu. Mine has a 300Hz 1080p screen, nonetheless there’s likewise a 165Hz 1440p alternative also, and we’ll inspect out reaction times after the game criteria. Nvidia details the power restriction of the RTX 3080 mobile as 80 to 150+ watts, and ASUS specified the 3080 in the Mark 15 as adding to 130 watts. Now in a GPU just workload, I did find that mine would certainly add to 130, however with the CPU likewise energetic it would certainly run at 115 due to the means vibrant boost jobs. The Scar 15 does not have a MUX button, so we’re stuck with optimus. There’s also no G-Sync, however it does have Resizable BAR assistance. The ASUS Arsenal Pet crate software application lets you customize performance

settings, I have actually done all screening in hands-on mode with the fans readied to maximum speed as well as the power limitation sliders readied to max, as well as by default this does use an overclock to the GPU. Currently it is possible to blink a personalized VBIOS to this laptop and get enhanced pc gaming performance. I will not be doing that in this video clip as this is a borrowed testimonial unit and also there are risks involved with it, so I’m simply evaluating at supply here, but if you do wish to see what personalized VBIOS can do on this laptop computer then take a look at this video clip by Brandon on the GizmoSlipTech channel. Alright so with that said in mind allow’s begin out by seeing exactly how well the Mark 15 performs in 13 games at 1080p all setup levels. After that afterwards we’ll see how the Mark 15 compares versus various other gaming laptops, I’ll examine out screen reaction time, and also we’ll additionally see what kind of an efficiency increase we can manage connecting an external display – as well as make sure that you’re subscribed for the upcoming full testimonial of this laptop computer which will certainly cover every little thing else like thermals and also more. Call of Duty Warzone was checked with either all settings at minimum or optimum, as it does not have predefined establishing presets. With these specifications even max settings were running

perfectly great and still well over 100 FPS. Minimum setups weren’t using that much of an efficiency increase below, just a 14% improvement to ordinary FPS. Cyberpunk 2077 was evaluated in little China with the street youngster life course. The greatest ray mapping ultra pre-programmed was just below 60 FPS with DLSS established to quality, so definitely still usable despite having these higher levels likely many thanks to the 3080 graphics, though obviously lower setups are able to additional boost performance. Red Dead Redemption 2 was evaluated with the games criteria. There was primarily no distinction between reduced and high setups, at the very least at 1080p. I think the difference would certainly be better at a greater resolution like 1440p, truthfully this looks even more like a bottleneck. Regardless, 80 FPS at ultra setups in this examination is a fantastic outcome. Control was evaluated without ray tracing in the purple bars, with ray tracing in the green bars, which is a lot reduced somewhat, and with ray tracing and also DLSS in the red bars, which at max setups was really performing near to the default lead to purple as well as still close to 60 FPS. Really also without DLSS, ray tracing was still usable and also hitting above 60 FPS with the 3080 graphics. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was evaluated

with the video game’s standard. Again above 60 FPS at max setups was accomplished right here, which is an excellent result for this test, as it’s generally rather resource hefty, also known as unoptimized, whichever you prefer, the outcome coincides, though over 100 FPS was still possible with lower setups. Microsoft Flight Simulator was examined in the Sydney touchdown obstacle. Talking of source heavy, we’re only simply over 30 FPS with max setups even with the high end specifications in my device. Also reduced setups could not get to 60 FPS right here, yet to be fair you don’t need a incredibly high frame price for this video game. Enjoy Dogs Myriad was evaluated with the video games standard. This is an additional where I do not think you need an extremely high structure price, and racking up over 60 FPS in this test at ultra setups is a good result. Field of battle V was checked in campaign setting. This game is an older video game currently compared to the previous titles covered, which is most likely why the frame prices are much higher compared to the various other titles tested earlier. Ultra setups were well above 100 FPS as well as it’s running not a problem. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was evaluated with the games benchmark device. Once again still above 100 FPS maxed out, but as you’ll see soon when we compare to various other laptop computers, this isn’t actually

that terrific for the RTX 3080. Fortnite was checked with the replay attribute. This is even more of an esports examination, so it’s not also unexpected that we’re obtaining a lot greater frame rates right here. Reduced settings would be the best suit for the 300Hz display in my unit, but I would certainly anticipate greater structure rates with a MUX switch, so again a bit depressing there’s no choice of disabling optimus below. CS: GO is one more esports title, and also this in certain is one I’ve located to see huge gains with optimus impaired, so there’s absolutely performance being left. Regardless, also max setups are reaching ordinary FPS greater than the display’s refresh price in this examination. Rainbow 6 Siege also strikes rather high frame rates without issue. Low setups were close to the display’s refresh price, however there’s not as well much of a drop off at higher setups, ultra settings are still doing very well. The Witcher 3 is an older video game that I still evaluate to make sure that you can compare with my older videos. Once again not a problem running maxed out at ultra settings, though there’s a fairly huge increase to both typical FPS and 1% lows just by tipping down one setting pre-programmed to high. Now let’s learn just how well this configuration of the Mark 15 contrasts versus various other laptops, however make use of these results as a harsh overview just, as they were examined at different times with various drivers. I’ve examined

Battleground 5 in project setting at ultra setups, as well as the Scar 15 is highlighted in red. The outcome isn’t negative or anything, I mean it’s only just somewhat under the desktop substitute Alienware 51m, however I was expecting better from the 16 job RTX 3080 graphics below. The reduced wattage 3070 in the Aero 15 is doing better, though it does have an Intel processor and also I did just recently show that Intel is by no implies out of the CPU pc gaming race simply yet. The XMG Neo 15 is Ryzen based but with 3070 graphics, as well as I presume it’s much additionally in advance because that one has a MUX button as well as allows you disable optimus. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was checked with the games benchmark device with the greatest setup predetermined, and the Mark 15 drops down a number of placements currently loved one to the very same option of laptops. It’s just a little in advance of the thinner ASUS Zephyrus G15 simply below it which additionally has RTX 3080 graphics, though half the VRAM as well as with a lower power limit. I’ll take an appearance at how we can boost efficiency here with an exterior monitor quickly. Far Cry 5 was likewise evaluated with the games benchmark tool at max settings. The Scar 15 was lower this time around. This test tends to be a lot more CPU

dependent, as well as I was expecting much more from the 5900HX though that had not been the instance below. The results don’t actually make sense to me either, provided the 5900HS with the reduced powered 3080 in the G15 was executing far better here, though to be fair the G15 does have a high CPU power restriction, I’ll check that out in depth on the Scar in the upcoming complete evaluation. Look, at the end of the day I think RTX 3080 graphics paired with a 1080p display are a little bit overkill unless you’re a serious esports gamer, yet even if you were a significant esports player you would certainly be better served by a laptop that has a MUX switch as this will certainly boost gaming efficiency. For 1080p, I believe the RTX 3060, possibly 3070, could be a much better option. If I had the 165Hz 1440p screen though then the 3080 may be a bit better. It would simply have the ability to stretch its legs much better. Affixing an exterior monitor to the Type-C port can boost pc gaming efficiency as it bypasses optimus as well as links straight to the discrete GPU. This is the degree of efficiency that we might be obtaining if the Mark 15 had a MUX button, so a 12.5% boost to average FPS in this game. I’ll cover thermals and also whatever else in the upcoming full testimonial, so see to it you’re subscribed for that.

Currently let’s have a look at screen action time. The ASUS Arsenal Cage software program gives you the choice to make it possible for or disable panel overdrive which impacts display feedback time. Overdrive is made it possible for by default, as well as I measured the average grey-to-grey response time at about 3.8 ms. There’s a web link down in the summary if you need an explanation on what all of these numbers mean. With overdrive instead disabled, we’re considering around a 6.7ms response time currently, nevertheless there was now no overshoot or undershoot, both of which were existing with overdrive allowed. When we take a look at just how it contrasts versus others, it is just one of the much better outcomes that I’ve tested so much. We want a 3.33 ms feedback time for all changes to happen within the refresh window for a 300Hz panel, so we’re not under this usually. Practically everything else about this gaming laptop computer will certainly be covered in the complete evaluation, so ensure you’re subscribed for that, as well as if you want to aid sustain the channel, sign up with the Disharmony chat as well as obtain behind the scenes videos, then look into Patreon over right here. Otherwise if you desire more video gaming laptop computer videos like this one after that there’s lots a lot more!
