ASUS Zephyrus G14 Gaming Benchmarks – 20 Games Tested!


The ASUS Zephyrus G14 is a smaller 14” gaming
laptop that still packs in good specs, but how well does it actually perform in games?
I’ve tested 20 different games at all setting levels and compared it with other laptops
to help you decide if it’s worth it. I’ve got one of the highest specced configurations
of G14 available. There’s the new AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS processor, which has 8 cores and
16 threads. There’s Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics at 65w, 16gb of memory in dual channel
at DDR4-3200 with a 14” 1080p 120Hz screen, but it’s also available in a 1440p configuration,
you can find different options and updated prices linked in the description. The ASUS Armoury Crate software lets you select
different performance modes, I’ve done my testing with turbo mode for best performance,
as this overclocks the graphics by 100Mhz on the core and 120MHz on the memory. We’ll only be covering gaming performance
in this video, we’ll start by looking at all 20 games at all setting levels, then compare
the G14 with some other gaming laptops afterwards. If you want to see everything else about this
machine, check out the full review linked in the description. Red Dead Redemption 2 was tested using the
game’s built in benchmark tool. High settings was still able to give a fair average frame
rate considering this is a resource heavy game. Battlefield 5 was tested in campaign mode,
I’ve got the results with RTX enabled, shown by the green bars, and RTX off, shown by the
purple bars. It ran great with RTX off, even at higher settings, but given I think RTX
on isn’t worth it even with the non Max-Q 2060, I definitely wouldn’t consider it
here as you’d have to use it at lower settings for a playable experience. Control was also tested with and without RTX
enabled. The game still plays ok with lower frame rates for the most part, but I wouldn’t
want to use it with RTX on, at least with the high settings I’ve used here, it runs
well enough with RTX off though. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings
at maximum, or all settings on the lowest possible values, as it doesn’t have predefined
setting presets, and I’ve disabled the frame rate cap. Even at max settings though we’re
averaging above 100 FPS and it’s running well. Call of Duty Modern Warfare was tested in
campaign mode, and I’ve also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at minimum.
Max settings was still able to run above 60 FPS, while minimum settings were hitting higher
than this for the 1% low. Borderlands 3 was tested using the game’s
built in benchmark, and high settings was needed to reach a 60 FPS frame rate, while
the lowest setting levels were able to get us to 100 FPS. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was again tested
with the built in benchmark, and the results were fair, but I’ll show you how different
laptops compare in this game and some others soon. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also tested with
the benchmark tool, and this was another demanding game that was still able to surpass 60 FPS
even with the ultra setting preset, but almost 100 FPS was possible with low. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature,
and as a less demanding game epic settings was still able to run above 100 FPS, while
high settings was above the refresh rate of the 120Hz screen. Overwatch is another less demanding game and
was tested in the practice range. Even with the highest epic setting preset the average
frame rates were higher than the refresh rate of the screen, so it’s running well. CS:GO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark,
and as a test that seems to favour CPU performance the results are a little below a similarly
specced Intel based laptop, possibly due to the higher single core boost speeds, but I’ll
compare the 4900HS with Intel in depth in a future video. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane,
and as is typically the case with this game, higher end graphical power in most laptops
hardly makes a difference as the limitation tends to be the CPU. In any case, there’s
still great performance here even with ultra settings. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built
in benchmark but using Vulkan, which was recently added to the game. Even very high settings
were able to hit average FPS above the 120Hz refresh rate of the screen, so no issues playing
this one either. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in
benchmark, most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this, so don’t take
these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game, it’s
more of a worst case. The Division 2 was also tested with the built
in benchmark, ultra settings was almost able to scrape 60 FPS, with medium needed to surpass
100, while low settings could get us higher than the screen’s refresh rate. PUBG was tested using the replay feature,
however the results are unfortunately not comparable with any of my previous testing
as I tested a different map. I spent over an hour trying to get the map I usually do
but ended up giving up, I’ll probably stop testing this game in future unless there’s
strong opposition. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was tested with
the built in benchmark, and as a resource heavy game the frame rates weren’t that
high with the higher setting presets, however it was possible to get above 60 FPS with high
settings. Far Cry New Dawn was also tested with the
games benchmark, and for the most part the results aren’t really that much different
when compared to most other laptops I’ve tested with lower GPUs, so maybe this is another
game I should replace like PUBG, let me know. The Witcher 3 was playing ok even with max
settings, I don’t think it really sees a benefit from super high FPS, however stepping
back just one setting level to high puts even the 1% low above the average frame rate of
ultra. F1 2019 was tested using the game’s benchmark
tool, the 1% low results were a little inconsistent between setting levels, but either way still
running just fine even with the highest setting preset. Let’s also take a look at how this config
of the G14 compares with other laptops, use these results as a rough guide only as they
were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield 5 I’ve got the G14 highlighted
in red near similarly specced machines. Well, kind of. It’s hard to compare apples to
apples here as I believe this is the first gaming laptop to actually feature Nvidia RTX
2060 Max-Q graphics, or at the very least is the first I’ve been able to get my hands
on. Given it runs with a 65 watt limit, it looks like 80 watt 1660 Ti systems can outperform
it. It’s real close to the Scar II with non RTX 2060 though, so that’s interesting,
and average FPS is similar to the Y540 with i7 and 1660 Ti, though the 1% low from the
4900HS was lower compared to the Intel i7 machines, granted it was better than AMD’s
previous 3750H based laptops. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with
ultra settings in the built in benchmark. This time the 1% low performance was looking
pretty good with the 4900HS, but again it seems that average FPS is lower when compared
to higher wattage graphics options. It’s really hard to fairly compare the 4900HS due
to the 2060 Max-Q, so we’ll have to wait until I get some other laptops that feature
that CPU but with different graphics to do a fair comparison. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb
raider with the built in benchmark at highest settings. In this test the frame rate was
closer to those more powerful 1660 Ti laptops which was interesting, so fair results from
the G14 here given the lower powered 65 watt GPU. Overall this configuration of the ASUS Zephyrus
G14 was offering decent gaming performance. As we saw in the full review, the CPU performance
is actually quite impressive compared to current alternatives, so it seems like the limitation
is the 65w 2060 max-q, which is fair given it’s a smaller 14 inch machine. It’s worth keeping in mind that the Max-Q
version of the 2060 now represents the entry level ray tracing experience for laptops.
Given I thought tracing those rays didn’t go too well even with the non Max-Q 2060,
I don’t think it’s worth considering the G14 purely with ray tracing in mind. Let me know what you want to see the G14 compared
to in the comments, and of course I’m interested to hear how you thought it performed, otherwise
if you’re new to the channel make sure you get subscribed for future laptop and tech

People’s behavior about online games.


Hello everyone we will talk about people’s behavior about online games. We asked 106 people and got the results. As you can see in the chart, females prefer to play online games more than males, And the next chart shows that people in the aged of 18 – 25 years prefer to play online games the most. We asked 106 people “Do they play online games?” about 87 percent of people play online games while about 12 percent of people don’t play online games. Let’s look at this chart. We asked people about what type of games do they play. The type of games that people choose are FPS, Survival, MOBA, MMORPG, Sport, Puzzle, Fighting, Hack & Slash, and Horror. As you can see, MOBA games have scored their peak at all. Compared with survival games, people play almost the same amount on puzzle games. Hack & slash is the least game that people choose. Next, we asked people about how much money they spend on online games. The numbers of money they spend on online games are almost the same amount. 27 percent of people never spend money on online games, 26 percent of people spend 200 – 500 baht on online games and 25 percent of people spend 500 – 1000 baht on online games. We asked people about how they got the money for online games. We have 3 choices: from saving, working, and parents. We got the result 90 percent of people got their money by saving whereas only 5 percent of people got their money by working and fewer people got their money from parents for online games. My next slide shows about how often they spend on online games per day. We have 4 choices: less than 4 hours, 4 – 8 hours, 8 – 12 hours, and more than 12 hours. As the chart shows that most people spend less than 4 hours a day on online games. And the next slide shows about how often they spend on online games per week. We have 3 choices: 3 – 5 days, every day, and 1 – 2 days. And the result is most people spend 3 – 5 days per week on online games. My next slide shows about how people feel from playing online games. As you can see, more people feel fun and relieve stress compared with people who feel stressed. The last chart shows about who people playing online games with. There are 4 choices: alone, with friends, with friends from the internet, and with family. And the result shows people prefer playing games alone more than playing games with friends. All of bar charts seem to suggest that people often play games in free time. The results also indicate that MOBA games are the games that people like the most and the chart seems to suggest that some people spend their money on online games too.

Arthur’s New Puppy!  🐶 | READ ALONG! | PBS KIDS


♪ And I say hey ♪ ♪ Hey ♪ ♪ What a wonderful kind of day ♪ ♪ Hey ♪ – Hi, I’m Marc Brown. And write and illustrate
the Arthur books. And I think you probably
see a lot of Arthur on PBS. And I bet you’re spending
a lot of time at home these days, I know I am. And I guess, you know, you
have to find the good things in spending time at home. Like you have a chance to
do some learning or reading. I’ve been doing a lot
more reading these days. And I thought maybe we
could read together. I brought a book with
me, maybe you know it. “Arthur’s New Puppy.” I’m gonna read the story for
you and show you the pictures and here we go. “Arthur’s New Puppy.” Arthur loved his new puppy, and Pal loved Arthur. “He’s a very active
puppy,” said Arthur. “He’s a very naughty
puppy,” said DW. “Don’t worry,” said Arthur. “I’ll have him
trained in no time. “Here’s your new
home,” said Arthur. “You’ll have the whole
garage to yourself.” But Pal did not like the garage. As soon as Arthur put him down, Pal ran and hid. “He feels lonesome,”
said Arthur. “Can he stay in the house,
please, please, please?” “Oh, all right,” said Mother. “But only for a day or two.” Arthur made a cozy spot
for Pal in the kitchen. “I thought you might need
a few newspapers,” said DW. Arthur held Pal carefully, the way his puppy
book showed him. “Look, he’s so
excited,” said Arthur. “Look at your pants,” said DW. “You have excitement
all over them.” “Eh, it’s okay,” said Arthur. “He’s just a baby.” “Well, I think baby dogs
should wear diapers,” said DW. Look at all those
newspapers DW brought in! Later, Pal ate his
dinner in a flash. “Uh oh!” said DW. “He has that look
in his eyes again.” “Quick,” said Arthur. “His leash!” But when Pal saw his
leash, he ran and hid. “I don’t think he likes
his leash,” said DW. “Help me find him,” said Arthur. “I guess he didn’t have
to go after all,” said DW. “I was wrong.” “No, you were
right,” said Arthur. “He just went.” Uh oh! Another mess. Puppies are like that, you know? Later that night, when
everyone was asleep, Pal yelped and howled until
he woke up the entire family. “Go to sleep,” said Arthur. Pal wanted to play. “Don’t forget to close
his gates,” called Mother. “Good night,” said Father. “Good luck,” said DW. The next morning, Arthur
was still in the kitchen. “Wake up, sleepy head,” said DW, “and be careful where you step.” “Oh no,” said Arthur. “I forgot to close Pal’s gate.” “Here’s your
scooper,” said Mother. “You think this is
bad,” said Father, “wait until you see
the living room.” Uh oh, I wonder what
happened in the living room. The kitchen looks pretty bad. Pal looked very
proud of himself. “My new drapes!” cried Mother. “My doll!” screamed DW. “Bad dog,” said Arthur. “Pal is moving to the
garage,” ordered Mother. “Here’s the key to the
garage,” said Father. “I’ll help you move his
things after dinner.” Father put the key
on the hall table. Look at the living
room, it is a mess! Let’s face it,
Pal is in trouble. Arthur packed up all of
Pal’s things and went to get the garage key, but it was gone. The whole family
searched for the key. Pal watched. “It has to be here
somewhere,” said Mother. But the key was
nowhere to be found. They’re looking everywhere! Can you see the key anywhere? I can’t see it. “It looks like you can stay
in the house one more night,” said Arthur. “I heard mom and dad
whispering,” said DW. “And Pal’s in big trouble. “They said, ‘He better be
trained soon or else.'” “Shh,” said Arthur. “You’ll hurt his feelings.” That night, Arthur remembered
to close Pal’s gate. Well, that was good. I wonder what’s going to happen? At school, Arthur told
Francine and Buster about training Pal. “I’m gonna teach him “to do all kinds of
things,” said Arthur. “I used to have a puppy,
too,” said Buster. “But he was too much trouble. “My parents sent him to a farm.” “My cousin had a problem
puppy,” said Francine. “No one could train him. “One day he just disappeared
while she was at school.” After school,
Arthur hurried home. You think he’s
gonna check on Pal? I hope Pal is still there. “Oh no,” said Arthur. “What happened?” “I thought I’d take him
for a walk,” said DW. “But when he saw the
leash, he went wild. “You better get this cleaned
up before mom sees it.” “Where is mom?” asked Arthur. “In the backyard,” said DW. “Looking for the garage key.” “Have you seen my dog
training book?” asked Arthur. “What’s left of it is
over there,” said DW. What a mess! Can you see Arthur’s
dog training book? It looks like Pal ate it. That night, Arthur gave Pal
an extra training lesson. “I’ll help you train
this beast,” said DW. “Let me get my whip.” “No,” said Arthur. “Dogs respond better to love. “Watch,” said Arthur. “He’s getting better. “Sit,” said Arthur. “Lie down,” said Arthur. “Stay,” ordered Arthur. “I know something he’ll
understand,” said DW. “Time for your walk, Pal.” “He just needs a little more
work, that’s all,” said Arthur. What happened when DW said that? It looks like Pal
didn’t want his leash. He’s gone! But Pal needed a lot more work. Arthur set up a training
school in the backyard. On Monday, they worked on sit. On Tuesday, they worked on down. Wednesday was stay day. By Thursday, Pal
was doing tricks. “Good dog, Pal,” said Arthur. Arthur decided to put on a
puppy show for his family. “When they see how
well you’re trained, “they’ll never send
you away,” said Arthur. Arthur got up early Saturday
morning to give Pal a bath. After breakfast, Arthur’s
family took their seats. “Welcome to Arthur’s
puppy show,” said Arthur. He held his breath. “What you are about to see
will amaze and astound you!” “If Pal amazes us any more, “our whole house will
be destroyed,” said DW. I wonder what’s gonna
happen in this puppy show. Could be trouble. Arthur clapped his hands. “Come,” he said. And Pal came. “Sit,” said Arthur. And Pal sat. “Down,” said Arthur. Down went Pal. Pal even did a trick! “Good dog,” said Arthur. “He is a good dog,” said Mother. “You mean he won’t have to
live on a farm?” asked Arthur. “Of course not,” said Father, “Not even in the garage.” No one noticed Pal run
behind the rose bushes. Where is Pal going? He’s always running and
doing something, isn’t he? Well, he’s a puppy,
that’s what puppies do. They’re very excitable. When Pal returned, he sat
up and wagged his tail. “Look, he has something
in his mouth!” said DW. “It’s the key to the
garage!” said Arthur. “Good boy, Pal!” said Father. “Amazing!” said Mother. That night, Arthur gave
Pal a special dinner. “Time for your walk,
Pal,” said Arthur. “I’ll get your leash.” But Arthur couldn’t
find it anywhere. “It was on the hook a
minute ago,” said Arthur. “I know I left it there.” “I’ll help you look,” said DW. Mother and dad helped, too. “It has to be here
somewhere,” said Arthur. Where is that leash? What do you think happened? No one noticed Pal run
behind the rose bushes. There he goes. Did you like that story? I hope you go to the
library when you’re able to and get some books, and maybe
you’ll have some good books at home that you
haven’t read in awhile. That would be a good thing
to do if you’re looking for something fun. I’ve been reading a lot, lately. So I guess we have
some questions here that you might like
the answers to. The first question is where did you get the
idea to write “Arthur”? You know what? It was the worst
year of my life, and I had just lost my job. I was a teacher and
the school closed. And I went home that night
and I was really sad, and I went to tuck
in my son, Tolon, who was about this big
then, now he’s that big! And he said, “Dad, will you
tell me a bed time story?” And for a minute I thought,
what should I tell him a story about? And Tolon said, “Dad, tell me
a story about a weird animal.” And so I searched the pantheon
on of children’s literature for an unused animal,
and aardvark happened. So I said, “Once upon a time,
there was a little aardvark.” And then Tolon wanted
to know his name. And I said, “His
name was Arthur.” And then he said, “What
did he look like?” And so I got a piece of
paper and I drew a picture of what Arthur looks like. Maybe I could that
for you right now. Let’s see, let me get my pen out and let’s get a
piece of paper here. Here’s how you draw Arthur. Here’s the secret formula. Okay, first we’re going
to do two letter O’s next to each other. Hook ’em together like that. And we’re gonna do a
large letter U like that, under the two circles
or letter O’s. And then we’re gonna do
another smaller letter U for his what, his mouth. And then we’re gonna add
two dots for his nostrils and two bigger dots inside
the letter O’s for his eyes. And we’ll put an upside
down U like that for the top of his head. And two lines here
for his eyebrows. Oh, we’re forgetting something. We have to add his ears. They look a little
like ping pong paddles. And we’ll put two ears on and there you have it. There’s Arthur, he’s
pretty easy to draw. I think you could draw him. Our next question is what is it like seeing
your book characters on TV? Wow, it’s really exciting! You know, when this whole
Arthur on television thing started, I wondered
what it would be like. Would it be hard to do this? Because I hadn’t done it before. But luckily, I get to work
with a lot of very smart people and it’s kinda like a family, and we all do different
parts of the Arthur show that you watch every day. And everybody is good at a
certain part of the show. So what I thought was
really interesting when I started to see
how television worked, is that it’s a lot
like the picture book that I just read you only we have movement
and we have sound, and that’s what makes
it even more exciting in some ways. And you know, another good thing
that I learned about Arthur being on television is
that we can do things like, oh, when Buster had asthma or when Arthur lost his grandpa, he found out that
he had Alzheimer’s. Things like that, that maybe
wouldn’t be a picture book but we can do them
on television. And I find that really helpful
and exciting for you guys because, you know, my friend
Fred Rogers, Mr. Rogers, was really good at teaching
all of us how television could be helpful to us. And so I think what Arthur
has done best for us is that he gets to show you
how a lot of things work, and describe how things are
that are sometimes difficult. So I think that’s
pretty exciting for me, to watch what Arthur’s
done on television. So another question is what are my favorite
“Arthur” adventures that have been on television? The one that pops
into my head first is when DW was a copy cat and she was doing
everything Arthur did, and then she started
to dress like Arthur. I hope you don’t do that to your brothers
and sisters, do you? You know, sometimes we can
be good brothers and sisters and sometimes not so good
brothers and sisters. I had three little
sisters, in fact, that’s where I got
the idea for DW. That’s what makes
her triply lethal. What do you do for fun when
you have to stay inside? Well, my wife Laurie
and I like to cook, so we have been cooking a lot. And I heard that some people
who are staying inside a lot don’t know how to cook, and so my friend had
a really good idea. He said, “Why don’t you
watch cooking shows on TV?” And so I think that
should help some. I like to watch
cooking shows on TV. I’ve learned a lot that way. And another thing that
I’ve learned on TV which I really like are
ways to help me grow things. Because when I’m
not working on books or the TV show for you guys,
I like to work in the garden. And I like to grow
raspberries and blueberries, and then I make
pies out of them. So yeah, so that’s one
of the other things I do in my spare time. So I just wanna say thank
you for tuning in today. Thank you for listening
to “Arthur’s New Puppy.” Thank you for watching our show because we work really hard
to make them good for you. And I hope that you’ll
watch Arthur on TV, on pbskids.org and
PBS Kids Video app. There are all kinds of
ways to watch Arthur. And oh yeah, be sure to watch “The Rhythm and
Roots of Arthur,” which will be on your
television very, very soon. Thanks and stay safe, and don’t forget to
read a lot of books. Bye! Oh! (knocking) Someone wants to say goodbye! Arthur! Bye! ♪ And I say hey ♪ ♪ Hey ♪ ♪ What a wonderful kinda day ♪ ♪ Hey ♪
