ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Malaysia today announces local pricing, specifications, and availability for its high-performance gaming laptops series:
the new ROG Strix SCAR and ROG Strix G.
Brand-new designs come to the Strix SCAR 16, Strix SCAR 18, Strix G16, and Strix G18, with updated internals for the Strix SCAR 17 and Strix G17.
Powered By Top-Level CPUs and GPUs
The Strix series is powered by the latest and greatest chips from Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA. The Strix SCAR 16 and 18 feature up to an Intel Core i9-13980HX processor with 24 cores and 32 threads, alongside up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU capable of up to 175 watts, for a total system power of 240 W (with Dynamic Boost and Manual performance modes).
The Strix G16 and G18 are powered by up to an Intel Core i9-13980HX CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU with up to 175 W of power using Dynamic Boost and the same MUX Switch with Advanced Optimus.
ROG is also introducing refreshed versions of the Strix SCAR 17 and Strix G17. The 2023 Strix SCAR 17 contains up to an AMD Ryzen 9 Zen 4 processor, plus up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, while the Strix G17 packs up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU alongside the same processor. Both models contain the same MUX Switch powered by Advanced Optimus as the 16- and 18-inch models.
Upgraded Intelligent Cooling
The redesigned 16- and 18-inch Strix laptops allow for an all-new Intelligent Cooling suite, featuring ROG’s Tri-Fan Technology first introduced on the 2022 Flow X16. In addition, the company had taken the full-width heatsink from the Flow X16 and enlarged it for the 2023 Strix SCAR 16, Strix SCAR 18, Strix G16, and Strix G18. This larger heatsink increases surface area for heat dissipation by up to 92.23% compared with 2022 models.
Every model is also available with one of ROG’s Nebula displays, ensuring a fast, bright, vivid image that surpasses typical gaming laptops for a truly immersive experience.
All 2023 ROG Strix machines are available with up to QHD 240 Hz displays. The Strix SCAR 16, however, is also available with a beautiful Nebula HDR display.
