ASUS unleashes RTX-Powered ROG Strix II Gaming Laptops

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announces the arrival of the refreshed ROG Strix Gaming laptops to be powered by next-generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics, featuring real-time ray-tracing technology for more realistic gaming experiences and supreme performance.

ROG Strix SCAR

The ROG Strix SCAR II comes in 15.6” and 17.3” flavors available with the same 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Both versions are draped in a shooter-inspired motif that uses splashes of camouflage to create a unique aesthetic fit for the battlefield. Highlighted WASD keys further reinforce the SCAR’s roots and ensure that you can easily find the home row for FPS gaming.

Both versions of the ROG Strix SCAR come with options of either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM, or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. All variants are equipped with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM, and 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD + 1TB SSHD for storage.

ROG Strix Hero

The ROG Strix Hero is optimized for MOBAs and ideal for gamers who want subtler styling. Its contrasting textures and cyber-text patterns are more restrained than the aggressive aesthetic of the SCAR II, making the Hero II more approachable for wider audiences.

Powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics, the ROG Strix Hero will enable higher frame rates in the latest MOBA Games, and guarantee that it will run whatever next-gen game you throw at it. Like with the SCAR, NVIDIA Optimus ensures that battery life and power will be conserved whenever the discrete GPU isn’t being used.

The ROG Strix Hero will be available at a later date.
