Upgraded Intelligent Cooling

ROG’s Intelligent Cooling gets an upgrade in the redesigned 16- and 18-inch Strix laptops, featuring ROG’s Tri-Fan Technology first introduced on the 2022 Flow X16.

In addition, ROG 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
