GPU Power Unleashed

Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to maximizing your GPU’s performance. The NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W, thanks to the extra 25W available with Dynamic Boost. Higher power limits allow the card to boost higher for longer, squeezing the absolute most performance out of your machine and ensuring you have highest framerates possible.

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 5-10%.

Beat the heat

Heat dissipation is faster and more efficient with our vapor chamber design, which vastly increases surface area compared to traditional heatpipe systems. Unlike conventional heat pipes that only transfer heat along their axis, vapor chamber designs spread heat across their entire surface, allowing the vapor chamber to rapidly absorb and dissipate waste heat without adding extra bulk to the machine. This efficient heat transfer also keeps the surface of the laptop cooler, keeping your hands comfortable for the entire game.

*Vapor chamber design only available on G733CX. Visual effect is for demonstration only.

Unleash the Grizzly

Cooling is one of the greatest challenges facing gaming laptops, and ROG is constantly pushing the envelope. This drive led to liquid metal, which is extremely effective at transferring thermal energy between surfaces like a processor die and heatsink.

The SCAR 17 SE takes this evolution one step further, with the use of Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU. This ultra-high performance thermal interface material can reduce temperatures by up to a staggering 15°C compared to traditional thermal pastes.

*Temperature improvements compared to regular thermal paste, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

0dB Ambient Cooling

Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.

0.1mm ultra thin fin

Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. There are up to 218 heatsink fins totaling 107,131mm² of surface area.

Anti-Dust Tunnels

Our upgraded thermal module design features shorter anti-dust tunnels that leave up to 5% more space around the fan, improving airflow by up to 15%. Preventing the buildup of dust ensures the long-term stability and reliability of your system.

3D Flow Zone gives access to fresh air

Ample airflow is a fundamental aspect of effective cooling. To amp up cool air intake for the Strix SCAR, its hinges are shifted forward in front of a heavily ventilated 3D Flow Zone. A trapezoidal cut carves out the bottom of the screen to ensure that the venting below is unobstructed, while giving the laptop its signature asymmetrical style.

CoolZone keyboard keeps you frosty

Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard above warm to the touch. To keep your fingers cool, small vents around the WASD keys let the fans draw cool air into the chassis from above.

Up to 6 comprehensive heatpipes have you covered

The comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. Combined with up to 6 heat pipes, this extensive thermal coverage helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.

*Only on G733CW

Scenario Profiles

Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between them based on the application you're running, alongside other vital system settings. Switch between lighting configurations automatically, disable the Windows key and touchpad during games, and automate to your heart's content. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand.

Keyboard layout

Taking inspiration from the best desktop keyboards, the function keys are spaced for fewer misses, and enlarged directional arrows are isolated for precise finger control. Five dedicated gaming hotkeys give quick access to features like volume, mic mute, and Armoury Crate.

Dedicated hotkeys

Dedicated gaming hotkeys sit just above the left side of the keyboard for quick access to the volume and mic mute controls, operating modes, and Armoury Crate. They are also fully customizable, and can be programmed to launch apps, set as a function key, or used as a macro. The Strix SCAR has all of the tools for victory.

Overstroke Technology

Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology registers keypresses earlier in the stroke, enabling a more responsive experience for serious gaming and work. Triggering earlier means faster, effortless inputs with greater accuracy.

Large touch pad

Improve everyday comfort and usability with a large active touchpad. More space means greater precision along with more comfortable hand movements and gestures while you’re navigating.

Endless Customization

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.

Macro Keys

Armoury Crate also supports full customization of the dedicated hotkeys. By default they act as volume control, microphone mute and a quick launch for Armoury Crate, but with a few adjustments you can make them work for you. Create a function key for quick toggle when needed, a macro for complicated button combinations, or even a quick launch button for the application of your choice. Make your machine uniquely yours.

Game Visual

ROG GameVisual software offers six expertly tuned graphic modes designed to optimize your visual experience for specific game genres. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhances visibility in dark environments, allowing you to get the drop on any enemies lurking in the shadows. Use GameVisual to get the best experience for every game in your library.

Aura Creator

Customize the RGB lighting on Aura-compatible peripherals to suit your gaming style. Aura Core’s easy-to-use control panel allows you to alter a brilliant spectrum of lighting effects and colors, in addition to swapping preset lighting modes, you can also activate Aura Sync to match colors and effects across multiple devices.

Scenario Profiles

Automatic switching between Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes is just the beginning for Scenario Profiles. You can also define application-specific preferences for other vital system settings, like the lighting configuration, whether the Windows key or touchpad are enabled, and which GameFirst VI and Sonic Studio III profile to use. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand, and you can configure each profile exactly how you want.

Aura Wallpaper

This brand new feature in Armoury Crate 5.0 allows you to synchronize an animated desktop wallpaper with your laptop's RGB lighting. Choose between multiple ROG-themed wallpapers and RGB effects to give your rig a completely unified look. Additional wallpapers can be downloaded directly from Armoury Crate, and the application can easily be controlled from the Windows system tray.
