React to Survive.
Compete at the highest level of Windows 10 Home gaming with the ROG Strix SCAR 17. Take on any challenge with the powerful AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX CPU and GeForce RTX™ 3080 GPU. Go all-in on esports speed with an ultrafast 360Hz/3ms panel. Input every strike with precision on a responsive optical mechanical keyboard. With a competitive edge this sharp, you can dominate any arena.
VICTORY HINGES ON YOU
Win with athletic style at your next esports tournament. Clean cuts across the lid mirror the cutting-edge power inside. Customisable Armor Caps add a pop of colour to your chassis. Artful Aura Sync accents illuminate your creativity. Light shines brightly from the metallic ROG logo and optical mechanical keyboard with per-key personalisation. More LEDs emit an even glow around the base of the chassis and across the strategic slice beneath the screen.
COMPETE AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
Accelerate work and play on a machine tailored to deliver triple-digit frame rates. Leading-edge graphics on a GeForce RTX™ 3080 GPU enable ultrafast and fluid gameplay. An overclockable AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX runs on up to 50W of sustained power when the GPU is active and 80W on its own, and is paired with up to 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM to slice through heavy workloads. 1TB of storage means you can take a huge games collection wherever you go.
Play at pro speed on the latest gaming panel. The Strix SCAR 17 has the world’s fastest laptop display with a 360Hz/3ms panel that lets you experience the game with tournament-level fluidity. Target tracking is smoother with minimal blur thanks to a 3ms grey-to-grey response time.
CUTTING-EDGE COOLING BOOSTS PERFORMANCE
Game in stealth with quieter, more effective cooling. Liquid metal compound on the CPU improves heat transfer for easier dissipation. Upgraded fans boast 84 blades apiece, each reshaped to push more air with less noise and turbulence. Air flows through four heatsinks and fan outlets to rapidly expel heat. You can customise system settings on a per-app basis, so cooling and acoustics are optimised automatically for the task. All these improvements allow ROG Boost to overclock the GPU in Turbo mode, and they open up extra thermal headroom to pursue even higher GPU clocks and also overclock the CPU.
OPTICAL SWITCHES ENHANCE PRECISION
Our optical mechanical keyboard switches actuate nearly instantaneously and much faster than standard alternatives, enabling more responsive input, superior accuracy, and extreme durability. A longer travel distance adds comfort, while curved caps keep your fingers centered. Per-key Aura Sync illumination lets you highlight key commands for different games, and offers a fun way to light up your world.
IMMERSE IN CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND
Virtual 5.1.2-channel surround sound powered by Dolby Atmos technology puts you in the center of the action. Twin tweeters fire sound directly at you, while dual Smart Amp woofers bounce bass off the table. Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation removes excess noise from incoming and outgoing audio, making your multiplayer team chat, streaming, and other communications crystal clear.
Unplug and do more on the move with a high-capacity 90Wh battery. Extend your battery life away from wall sockets with Type-C charging from compatible power packs. For everyday activities like web browsing and streaming video, you can work off a smaller USB-C adapter up to 100W and travel even lighter with a single charger for your laptop and phone.
AURA SYNC LETS YOUR PERSONALITY SHINE
Dim the lights and let Aura Sync take center stage. RGB LEDs accent the entire laptop, including per-key control that lets you highlight crucial commands for quick recognition. Coordinate your lighting across an entire ecosystem of Aura Sync devices to create your ideal gaming environment. Set the mood for competitive play. Link effects to in-game events. Show your true colours and personalise your gaming experience.
TRANSFORM YOUR EXPERIENCE
Keystone II offers a versatile new way to personalise your machine and protect your personal data. These physical, NFC-enabled keys fit neatly into the chassis, adding a subtle accent along the trim. When docked, Keystones can unlock access to personalised settings that transform your machine, quick-launch apps or games of your choice, reveal a hidden Shadow Drive for covert private storage, and more.
FAST WI-FI 6 NETWORKING
Game at gigabit speeds where compatible connections are available with Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). It boosts peak interface bandwidth , increases efficiency and reliability on crowded networks, and offers lower latency for less lag in-game. ROG RangeBoost enhances reception by evaluating the signal strength of four internal antennas and then picking the best pair to use for your location, minimising dead spots and increasing range by up to 30%.
Versatile I/O ports keep you connected anywhere. Hook up next-gen devices to amp up your setup at Gen 2 speeds via the USB 3.2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 and USB Power Delivery. Three Type-A USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports are ready for your favourite gaming gear, while HDMI 2.0b lets you connect a 4K monitor or TV at up to 60Hz. The key ports are strategically positioned at the back to keep cable clutter out of your space.
*G SYNC™ is only supported via USB Type-C
ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customise Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favourite titles. Pairing these customisations with the ROG Keystone II lets you quickly load your fine-tuned settings.
