PIXEL PERFECT POWER
Draw more frames and win more games with the raw horsepower of the brand new 2022 ROG Strix SCAR 17 with Windows 11. Tackle any enemy with an Intel® Core™ i9-12900H CPU, paired with an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ Laptop GPU with up to a 150W max TGP. Leave loading screens behind thanks to PCIe Gen4 solid state storage. With DDR5 memory bringing more bandwidth than ever before, the SCAR is ready to leave the competition in the dust.
Get more with MUX
Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to cutting-edge GPUs. NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 150W, thanks to the extra 25W available with Dynamic Boost. Higher power limits unlock even more performance from these graphics cards, ensuring you have the absolute best gaming experience.
Modern gaming laptops route frames from the GPU through the CPU's integrated graphics before reaching the display. This offers better battery life, but prevents your GPU from giving its absolute best performance. So we're bringing a MUX switch to all 2022 ROG laptops. For competitive games, you can switch to a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 15%.
ROG INTELLIGENT COOLING
Powerful components require a robust cooling solution. The SCAR utilises liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU and four dedicated fan outlets to efficiently transfer heat out of the system. ROG Intelligent Cooling™ allows critical components like the CPU and GPU to maintain higher boost frequencies for longer periods of time, keeping your framerate smooth and steady even during extended gaming sessions. The 2022 Strix SCAR also upgraded to Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal on the CPU. An ultra-high performance thermal interface material, Conductonaut Extreme can keep these components up to 15°C cooler than traditional thermal pastes. The SCAR keeps noise in check, too: when in Performance mode, the Strix SCAR does not exceed 40 dB of noise.
Liquid Metal with Conductonaut Extreme
Cooling is one of the greatest challenges facing gaming laptops, and ROG is constantly pushing the envelope. This drive led to liquid metals, which are extremely effective at transferring thermal energy between surfaces like a processor die and heatsink. Over a year of testing with various processors, ROG engineers observed reductions in temperatures up to 15°C with liquid metal, depending on the CPU. Lower temperatures help processors sustain higher clock speeds for longer and prevent fans from ramping up and making noise.
*Temperature improvements compared to regular thermal paste, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.
Upgraded Arc Flow Fans™
Updated Arc Flow Fans™ feature curved blades specially shaped to maximise airflow with minimal noise. Laptop fan blades are typically the same thickness throughout, but our new design can get as thin as 0.1mm at the base before expanding toward the tip. Varying the thickness reduces turbulence as the fan blades accelerate air with centrifugal force, giving you a quieter overall experience.
CUSTOMISE YOUR LOOK
Customizable Armor Caps allow you to add extra flair to your machine. Choose from three bundled options in the box, or 3D your own with downloadable templates for a 100% unique design. The semi-translucent palm rest gives you a sneak peek at the internals, and redesigned rubber feet help to eliminate vibrations for smooth, quiet gaming sessions. Coupled with colourful accents, the sporty feel of the Strix SCAR resonates across the entire chassis.
CHANGE UP YOUR LOOK
Add a pop of personality to your chassis with Customizable Armor Caps. Two additional colour options come in the box and swap out effortlessly, letting you switch up your style anytime. For a fully customised touch, we also have a 3D printing template that makes it easy to create original looks of your own.
STUN AT EVERY ANGLE
Thoughtful details set this laptop apart from the competition. Our 360° design philosophy puts subtle but distinctive elements across every part of the machine. The dot matrix design splashed across the lid cuts down to meet cross-hatched vents beneath the base. An expansive rubberized grip holds the laptop firmly in place and makes it easier to carry. Typographic elements around the trim subtly show off your ROG pride.
Game in a customised glow with clean RGB lighting. The wraparound light bar has a higher LED density to evenly illuminate the three front edges of the chassis, while additional LEDs beneath the display add a diffused glow on deck. Coordinate illumination across your entire suite of compatible Aura Sync peripherals to set the mood for competitive play.
Soft-touch paint slashed across the most commonly used parts of the keyboard and palm rest minimises smudges and fingerprints to stay clean and stylish through the day. It adds a matte finish to the resilient plastic deck that keeps surface temperatures cooler and more comfortable to the touch than metal over extended play sessions.
LIGHTNING FAST, CRYSTAL CLEAR
You can’t beat the enemy if you can’t see them coming. The Strix SCAR has an ultra fast panel for every scenario, making sure you’ll never miss a moment. This 17” machine offers QHD 240Hz. With refresh rates that fast and response times of just 3ms, you can make pixel perfect decisions even in the most frenetic firefights. Each IPS panel also offers fantastic colour, Dolby Vision HDR, and Adaptive-Sync for a stellar gaming and viewing experience.
Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward firing woofers to create an authentic sound stage for your games. Hi-Res audio ensures you hear your music in the same quality it was recorded. Two Way AI Noise Cancellation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction.
TWO-WAY AI NOISE CANCELLATION
Our advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation technology runs on the CPU, which frees up the GPU to hit higher FPS. It works with any input device and also with downstream connections, letting you remove noise from both your own mic input and from incoming feeds. Noise-cancelling settings can even be customised per program, filtering specific apps like voice chat without affecting game audio you want to remain untouched.
QUAD SPEAKERS WITH DOLBY ATMOS
Two tweeters and two woofers powered by Smart Amp offer richer sound with 2.8x more volume, 3x more powerful bass, and up to 3x the dynamic range of alternatives. This quad-speaker setup delivers immersive surround sound optimised by Dolby Atmos technology to deliver balanced, multidimensional audio across the full spectrum without losing clarity or detail.
Hi-Res Audio provides lossless audio, letting you hear recordings exactly as the artist intended.
PRESS THE ATTACK
Built to last, the Strix SCAR's keyboard switches are rated to last over 20 million presses. The WASD keys can rest easy, durable enough to stand the test of time. Per-key RGB lighting allows for unlimited flexibility via Aura Sync, including game specific lighting layouts.
ALL DAY ENDURANCE
The Strix SCAR is ready to go the distance. Featuring a 90Wh battery, the laptop can last for 10.5 hours of video playback before needing a recharge. For flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging up to 100W is supported. When charging using the supplied 280W power adapter, the SCAR can recharge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.
In modern multiplayer games, a stable internet connection is imperative. The SCAR is ready to join the fight with a dedicated RJ45 port supporting 2.5G LAN, as well as the latest WiFi 6E standard. Never lag out again.
The RJ45 is not the only port in this storm. The dedicated GPU hosts an HDMI 2.1 port for the latest TVs and monitors, increasing total bandwidth from 18 to 48Gbps, and supporting up to 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz content. Two USB Type-C ports allow for plenty of connectivity—one for DisplayPort and power delivery, and a second with Thunderbolt 4 support.
When you want to tweak settings, monitor temps, or tinker with your laptop, Armoury Crate is your command center. Real time monitoring allows you to see what your GPU, CPU and memory are doing. RGB can be adjusted down to a game by game basis with Aura Sync. Fan and power profiles allow you to change the acoustics and thermal characteristics of the laptop on the fly. And exclusive game deals keep your library topped off at all times.
