Waited so far but couldn't buy it from Flipkart as it is still not available for my Bajaj No Cost EMI card, but it is strange that this one is available.

Take a look at this ASUS ROG Strix G15 (2022) with 90Whr Battery Ryzen 7 Octa Core AMD R7-6800H - (16 GB/1 TB SSD/Windows 11 Home/6 GB Graphics/NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/165 Hz) G513RM-HQ271WS Gaming Laptop on Flipkart

should I consider it instead?

IMO not worth extra 30k.

Need some urgent help
Was playing a game on my laptop (Acer Nitro 5 with RTX 3050), and after quitting the system just froze for a min and later got a BSOD with this error
Code:
Video TDR Failure (NVLDDMKM.SYS)
The system restarted on its own and now running any game they start with very low fps, guess they run on integrated graphics. In the Device Manager, this is what its showing for the dedicated graphics card
Code:
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
Uninstalled and re-installed the latest drivers multiple times but still the same problem. Nvidia control panel does not open, Geforce experience asks me to install drivers.
From what I've googled about this error suggests a hardware malfunction or corrupt driver. Temps during playing games were 85-86 max for graphics card.
Now will reseting the Laptop work here or do I have to RMA it, still have 2 months warranty left.

Use DDU to remove the nvidia driver for a clean install.
Also, check if it is getting detected in a live linux OS.
No need to reset the laptop and if the issue persists, push for a 1-to-1 replacement under warranty.

Used DDU in safe mode to remove the nvidia driver and did a clean install. Still the same issue as above.
Using Ubuntu, it does detect the card.

Visited the Acer service center after raising a service request (Customer Care was terrible). They did their diagnostics, un-install/re-install the drivers but no good.
Told me it would be a full Motherboard replacement. Will take a few days for the board to come. Oh well no gaming for a few days.

Update:
Got the replacement Motherboard for my laptop today, and everything working fine for now.
I'm gonna put the problem as a faulty part/motherboard, but the problem occurring after 9 months of heavy gaming use I am feeling a little skeptical if it could happen again.
Temperatures during gaming were 92 for cpu and 86 for gpu max, which I think are OK for gaming. Never experienced any performance drop due to thermal throttling when gaming. And I keep the laptop in an elevated position for better air flow. The service guy did say about getting it serviced every 6 months and I did to it once when upgrading RAM/SSD.
Or am I just overthinking here.

86C is the throttling limit for Nvidia GPUs & 90C+ is also not considered good, esp for average temps. If these are max temps with lower avg temps, it should be fine.

Look into GPU UV + underclocking (using MSI afterburner voltage curve editor) to reduce GPU temps, which will help with reducing CPU temps as well. I lost 10% performance but dropped my old laptop's GPU from 80W to 65W, which helped with 5C lower temps on both CPU & GPU (shared heatpipes).

So the max clock speed for the 3050 is 1530MHz base and 1740MHz boost at 80W according to here

Running a benchmark:

So I'm to change the curve to run stable at 1600MHz or at the base clock @875mV?

Just burned out my Asus laptop (1050Ti graphics). Looking to buy new laptop ,one with good thermals. Range between 120k to 150k.

Any recommendations?

Got the GPU down to 1440MHz @800mV stable. Temps have gone down 5-6 degrees. No significant change in performance.
For now haven't gone under that, will try getting it down some more later and see.

Even I was thinking Legion 5 but are th

Only thing I am concerned about is good thermals and fans. Is HP omen any good, especially this one Amazon.in
Omen has good thermals, but at 120k+ Omen is bad choice as Legion has better performance due to a higher power limit on CPU (50W vs 35W, I think) & GPU (115W vs 100W) + MUX switch which helps with gaming, so adds up to about 10% higher fps or sometimes more.

6800H is barely 10% better than 5800H for CPU-intensive tasks, don't expect any noticeable difference in gaming performance. 3060 is similar in performance to RX 6600, but lacks DLSS or RT. IMO DLSS at 1080p is not that good & RT is not usable at such weak GPUs.
 
IMO you will barely even see a 5% fps improvement over 5800H. So, most Ryzen 6000 & Intel 13th gen laptops are expensive for gaming.
