COOLING


To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 82.5% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU, the SCAR 18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.

Full-Surround Vents

Hot air needs somewhere to go, so we redesigned the SCAR 18’s exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the SCAR 18 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. We even moved the heatsinks closer to the vents themselves, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine and avoid any recirculation.

Full-Width Heatsink

The SCAR 18 features 414 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, with a total of 195,509mm² of surface area, an increase of 82.5% from the 2022 SCAR 17. This all-copper construction continues to the new full-width design, which is double the size of a normal heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.

Tri-Fan Technology

At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Tri-Fan Technology directs air though precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.

Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal

Starting in 2022, select ROG models featured Thermal Grizzly’s cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme, which improves liquid metal's heat transfer even further. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium- and gallium-based compound offers 17X higher conductivity, in addition to CPU and GPU temperature reductions of up to 15 degrees. Used exclusively by ROG, this material offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.

*Temperature improvements compared to the previous gen thermal compound, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

Up to 7 comprehensive heatpipes

The Strix SCAR 18’s comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. With 7 heatpipes and an increase in total coverage from 29% to 33% of the motherboard compared to last generation, this extensive thermal solution helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.

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.

Dust Filter

First introduced on the Zephyrus G14, the ROG Strix SCAR 18 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.

*Internal testing in a simulated dusty environment.

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. With up to 414 heatsink fins totaling 195,509mm² of surface area, heat flows out of the system incredibly efficiently, letting your components boost higher, for longer.

CoolZone keyboard

Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard 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.

Scenario Profiles

Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between these modes 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.

A comparison image showing the difference that the refresh rate can synchronize with GPU’s frame rate with G-Sync Technology reducing motion tearing.

NVIDIA® G-SYNC®

Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With NVIDIA G-SYNC, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.

Gaming laptop of the year! Although the year has just begun — ROG Strix SCAR 18

ROG STRIX SCAR 18 | RTX 4090, i9 13980HX, 18 inches

Some time ago we learned about the existence of the mobile RTX 4090 and now it has finally made it to the test in the SCAR 18 laptop from Asus together with the new Intel i9. Both are very interesting, but will it stand up to our assumptions?

WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? He was right...

We've never had a laptop like this before! The ASUS ROG Strix Scar 18 delivers a supercharged Intel i9 processor, Nvidia RTX 4090 graphics and two SSDs in RAID 0 - all powered by a 330W power supply! Of course, we tested the laptop, benchmarked it - and here are the results!

With the year 2023, new powerful laptops are coming to the market that claim the throne of the best you can buy. And so we're extremely happy that this year Asus has sent us their hot new Asus Strix Scar 18 to test out as well. It's equipped with a new 13th generation Intel processor and GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, and if you're wondering just how powerful this machine is, you'll get your answer in our test.

You may own the best possible gaming laptop from last year. Maybe you own a PS5. Maybe you also own a solid newer gaming desktop.... I'll tell you right now that the ROG Strix 18, a laptop, is very likely far more powerful. ASUS has managed to masterfully curate the best and latest that Intel and NVIDIA have to offer, and the result is the most extreme I've ever seen.
