With up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics and 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, ROG Strix brings even more power and style to FPS esports gaming. Available in 15- and 17-inch models, boasts the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with an ultrafast 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time for unmatched smoothness and response. For an added edge in the heat of battle, this powerful Windows 10 Pro gaming laptop features the exclusive HyperCool Pro cooling system that allows you to fully unleash the potential of its high-performance CPU and GPU, while ROG RangeBoost technology uses multi-antenna Wi-Fi to provide up to 30% more1 range, higher throughput and fewer dropped connections. In addition, the all-new Armoury Crate utility offers one-click access to system settings and Aura lighting effects. Strix SCAR II offers an unstoppable combination of high-performance graphics and ultrafast display in a compact design!
Strix is more powerful than ever before. In addition to an 8th Generation Intel Core processor with16GB of DDR4 memory, it now includes all-new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series GPUs with up to 8GB of VRAM and support for incredibly photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. Storage is fast and plentiful with 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD and a 1TB Seagate FireCuda SSHD. No matter how you equip your Strix , you’re guaranteed combat-proven firepower.* Specifications may vary according to configuration.
The new Turing architecture underpinning NVIDIA’s latest laptop GPU lineup melds programmable shading with real-time ray tracing and artificial intelligence to enable greater realism. Traditional CUDA cores join forces with dedicated RT cores for ray tracing and Tensor cores for AI to improve the quality of lighting, shadows, and other effects. The processing power of this diverse array can also be harnessed to accelerate a range of other workloads, from content creation to 3D modeling to deep learning.
Strix is equipped with the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 six-core CPU, providing you 23% more performance over the previous generation. Intel Speed Shift and Turbo Boost technologies push the processor to speeds of up to 4.1GHz espectively. Intel Hyper-Threading enables up to 12 threads to handle every task quickly and efficiently, including simultaneous gaming, recording, and live-streaming.
With 16GB of high-performance DDR4 RAM, Strix has more than enough bandwidth to run the latest games smoothly, while at the same time consuming less energy.
Strix is fitted with an ultra-responsive M.2 NVMe PCI 3.0 SSD with 512GB of storage for your favorite games. It loads them at warp speed and offers superfast access to the rest of your data, so everything you do feels fast and smooth.
Used as primary storage or secondary storage to support an SSD, the 5400rpm FireCuda solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD) used in loads games in less than half the time taken by 1TB HDDs — and it’s quieter, too. The SSHD takes note of your most frequently used files, and caches them onto its onboard flash memory. Over time, you’ll see a notable difference in loading times as the file access speeds increase.
To give you the maximum advantage in combat, features the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with a 3ms GTG response time — a must-have for hardcore gamers and esports players. The new design also results in a less distracting frame, allowing for a more compact body that’s narrower and lighter than its predecessor, so you can take the fight with you, wherever you go!* SCAR II (15-inch) is 2.33cm narrower than SCAR Edition (GL503VS). SCAR II (17-inch) is 1.52cm narrower than SCAR Edition (GL703VM).
The margin between victory and defeat can be measured in fractions of a second. Strix features an IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms GTG response time for supersmooth visuals with little or no motion blur. The 300cd/m² panel ensures 20%-brighter visuals compared to low-end IPS panels.
The HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help Strix SCAR II get the most out of its GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability.* Specifications vary according to model.
ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for up to 30% more3 range, higher throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans the environment and selects the best pair of antennas to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) Gigabit Wi-Fi pushes peak wireless bandwidth up to 1.7Gbps — twice that of typical 802.11ac and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!
A revised keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology puts decisive control at your fingertips. It features a desktop-inspired layout, four hotkeys, customizable RGB backlighting across four zones, a highlighted WASD key group with transparent key caps, and ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curves for more comfortable typing. Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation and a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. N-key rollover technology ensures multiple simultaneous keystrokes are instantly logged, while anti-ghosting ensures no false commands are registered — so you’re in full control when precision is needed. With a lifespan of 20 million key presses, SCAR II has one of the most durable keyboards to be found in a laptop — double that of the current industry standard.
Aura Sync technology gives your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. Match the colors of the ROG logo, keyboard and light bar on Strix SCAR II with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals. The full spectrum of colors and seven different lighting modes can be easily accessed via the Aura control panel.
Strix SCAR II delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio via powerful side-firing speakers that immerse you in sound. Even the slightest sounds can be heard, so you’ll know where an enemy is approaching from. Smart-amplifier technology monitors audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass. Sonic Studio III provides high quality in-game audio, surround sound for your headphones, as well as improved streaming and audio recording for perfect voice pickup and noise reduction. Every little advantage aids your march to victory — and Strix SCAR II ensures you hear every precise audio cue!
VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics put you right in the middle of the action. Explore immersive digital battlefields in smooth, low-latency, and stutter-free VR. Strix SCAR II is also certified by Microsoft for Windows Mixed Reality applications.* GeForce GTX 1060 or better is required for smooth VR gaming
To ensure the very best gaming experience, we've redesigned the Gaming Center control panel. The all-new Armoury Crate utility has a simpler interface that allows you to control and monitor system setting and performance more easily than ever before. Changing system profiles and fan speeds takes only a couple of clicks. You can even save up to four profiles that automatically load specific settings for different games. Link Armoury Crate to your mobile device by simply scanning a QR code, putting complete control in your hand.* GL504GM/GS models have ROG Gaming Center and Fan Overboost preinstalled. Other models come with Armoury Crate and HyperFan.
With one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C (USB-C), one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and up to three USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, Strix SCAR II makes connecting to the latest gaming peripherals a cinch.
