ROG Launches Premium Strix SCAR 17 Gaming Laptop


ROG Strix SCAR 17 Laptop

Fremont, California (April 2, 2020) - ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced a special Strix SCAR 17 gaming laptop with an ultrafast 300 Hz / 3 ms display and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ GPU that represents the pinnacle of professional esports performance.

Speed and agility are crucial stats in the world of esports, where razor-thin margins make the difference between victory and defeat. Staying competitive at the highest levels demands a gaming machine that can keep up with the action. Strix SCAR 17 is packed with power to pump out enough frames to saturate an expansive 17.3-inch display with the smooth graphics required for competitive play.

Unrivaled graphics

Every advantage matters at the highest levels of esports. Ultra-high-refresh-rate displays demand a GPU that can deliver high frame rates, so ROG created a special version of Strix SCAR 17 featuring the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. Upgraded cooling lets ROG Boost take the top-of-the-line GPU’s clock speeds up to 1560 MHz at a full 150 watts in Turbo mode, outpacing standard GeForce RTX 2080 configurations.

The latest series of GeForce RTX GPUs is built on the revolutionary Turing™ architecture. Its potent combination of CUDA, RT, and Tensor cores cover programmable shading, real-time ray tracing, and artificial intelligence. This combination enables slick lighting, reflections, and other visual effects that can make games look and feel more realistic.

Ultrafast 300 Hz display

While the GPU dictates how many frames are produced each second, the display determines how those frames are seen. ROG has been at the forefront of high-refresh rate displays from the beginning, breaking the 60 Hz barrier in 2016 with the first 120 Hz gaming laptop. ROG led the industry to 144 Hz and also to quicker response times, then raised the bar to 240 Hz to match the fastest desktop monitors of the time.

ROG was the first to start selling 300 Hz gaming laptops last year and earned a CES 2020 Innovation Award with ROG Strix SCAR III. Now, the new ROG Strix SCAR 17 is reaching the same speed. At 300 Hz, action-packed battles track more smoothly. Seeing more frames with shorter delays between them gives players the millisecond difference they need to win tournaments.

A quick 3 ms grey-to-grey response time minimizes motion blur for precise target tracking. The cutting-edge display is also framed by super-narrow bezels that make the 17.3-inch screen seem even larger, for a more immersive view. With a screen-to-body ratio of 81.5%, players get an impressive view of the battlefield in a device with a surprisingly small footprint.

Latest-generation power

Gamers today frequently use their devices for streaming, content creation, game design, and more. With up to the latest 10th Generation Intel Core i9-10980-HK CPU, ROG Strix SCAR 17 takes down tasks with speed. Its potent 8-core processor pushes frequencies as high as 5.3 GHz with a single core and spins up to 16 parallel threads to blaze through heavy work.

Combining the processor with up to 32 GB of dual-channel DDR4-3200 memory means serious multitasking capacity. Strix SCAR 17 is equipped with high-performance RAM that’s faster than the stock 2933 Hz memory speed for 10th Generation CPUs, making it even more responsive. Gamers can jump into multiplayer, stream, chat and more, simultaneously. Creators can fire up their favorite media editing software and shift s
