The new devices include the Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 and Asus ROG Strix SCAR 16.

Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 QHD 2023

At CES 2023, Asus announced the new ROG Strix SCAR 17 2023, which features premium hardware and a significantly improved cooling solution. The desktop replacement measures 395 x 282 x 23.4-28.3mm and features a clean design with the familiar illuminated Asus logo on the back and an RGB light bar on the front.

The ROG Strix SCAR 17 QHD laptop features a 17-inch IPS display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and (2560 x 1440) resolution, as well as Dolby Atmos-certified speakers. Asus claims the display covers 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut while being compatible with Nvidia G-SYNC and Dolby Vision HDR.

It is powered by a mobile-series Ryzen 9 7000 processor and a 16GB RTX 4090 on GeForce with a maximum TGP of 175W. There is also a MUX switch to eliminate any potential bottlenecks. These two components are cooled by a combination of liquid metal and a vapor chamber.

Additionally, the laptop is configurable with 64GB of user-replaceable DDR5 4800MHz memory and up to 2TB of PCIe 4 storage. There is also an empty M.2 slot if you want to expand the storage later.

The network connectivity of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 QHD laptop is provided by Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. The laptop also has an Ethernet port that can handle speeds of 2.5 Gbps. Other ports include two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports and two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with DisplayPort 1.4 support. Unfortunately, only one of the Type-C ports offers Power Delivery 3.0. There is also a single HDMI 2.1 connector, a 3.5mm combo jack, and a single DC input for power.

Powerful gaming laptops are not known for their endurance, but ASUS offers a 90 Whr battery that you can quickly recharge with a 100 W charger that comes in the box.
