Powered by 10th Gen Intel Core i9 HK-Series mobile processors and up to RTX 2080 SUPER GPU, the laptops are all set to meet the needs of new-age esports. We believe that these innovative machines will be appreciated by gamers across the country.”
Precision-made for power-play
Built for pro-level competitive gaming, the 15″ and 17″ Strix G and Strix Scar laptops boast up to a powerful 300Hz high refresh rate with 3 ms response time for a smooth gaming experience with crisp fast-paced movements. With DDR4 3200 MHz RAM and configurable with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER GPU, the laptop makes for super-smooth visuals. The Strix series features ultrafast WiFi 6 networking for lower latency and less lag on compatible networks, two NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSDs running in RAID 0 for warp-speed load times, and a third upgradable SSD slot that lets users have additional terabytes of space.
An awe-inspiring design :
In collaboration with the BMW Design Works Group, ROG has introduced flowing ridges to the laptop that guide your eyes towards the thermal area, materializing favorable thermal performance. A magical aura adorns the device with the wraparound light bar, further bolstered with Aura Sync. Ensure frictionless gameplay with a NanoEdge display with super-slim bezels for an immersive experience like never before. Top it off with strong and reliable scissor-door hinges and you have an elevated look and feel in a familiar, power-packed gaming module. The easy-upgrade design with 3 M.2 slots considerably simplifies memory and storage modifications.
A rocking set of hues :
In addition to its stunning design and powerful engine, the Strix series delights with its three different color schemes that emphasize personal style beautifully. Apart from the elegant Glacier Blue and Original Black, the Strix G Electro Punk is the showstopper of the lot. The striking contrast between its dark brushed look and feel and sizzling pink highlights is complemented by a range of peripherals.
Intelligent cooling made possible with liquid metal :
The Strix G15/G17 and Strix Scar 15/17 boasts the latest innovation – a liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly that reduces the CPU temperature by up to 12-degrees and provides 35% slow down when temperature increases so the laptop can reach and sustain its highest operating frequency.
This is accompanied by ROG’s design philosophy for intelligent cooling that includes a chassis that is thoughtfully designed to accommodate effective fans and heatsinks.special liquid crystal polymer (LCP) fans are used with super-slim n-blades, anti-dust technology, come together to increase cooling air that flows through heatsinks with ultrathin fins that maximize airflow and surface area alike, ensuring the best heat dissipation. Based on 12v fans (RTX2060 variant and above), 83 blades, 3D thermal features and a unique trapezioid cut, the laptop delivers an exceptional cooling mechanism which is also 4% quieter.
Unrivaled excellence on board :
The keyboard on the latest Strix is ideal for marathon gaming or everyday typing. The desktop-style keyboard layout with identifiable gaps between function keys, isolated arrow keys, and an extended space bar make for precision on your fingertips and fewer misses amid a time-sensitive showdown. Overstroke technology makes key presses fire faster, as the keys actuate earlier for a quicker response, and anti-ghosting technology ensures that all key presses register precisely, even when multiple keys are pressed at once.
Taking keyboard convenience and style one step further, the ROG Strix G15 model comes with 5 isolated hot keys, a rollover N-key, and highlighted WASD keys. With 2.0 mm travel distance, 20 million key-press lifetime, 0.25 mm keycap curve and AURA Sync which lets you sync and customize light effects with gaming-mice, headset and other peripherals.
The all-new Keystone and more
The Strix Scar 15/17 also offers the new Keystone II which when attached to the computer, can instantly boost performance and also grant access to an internal “shadow drive.” The Scar series also offers three NVMe slots, two of which can be configured in RAID 0 for storage of up to 1TB and the third slot is there just for expansion.
