Among other new versions, the Asus ROG Strix SCAR II and Strix Hero II come as an upgrade to the versions which were introduced in Computex 2018 and debuted in India past August. Both brand new ROG Strix gaming laptops have Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics over the previously available Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics.
The Asus ROG Strix SCAR II comes in 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch display sizes which are accessible with 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Both versions of the ROG Strix SCAR II are draped in a”shooter-inspired notif” that has splashes of camouflage. There are also emphasized WASD keys to facilitate your FPS (first-person shooter) gaming expertise. Additionally, gamers can choose to configure their ROG Strix SCAR II notebook with the GeForce RTX 2070.
The machine has translucent keycaps to give an additional emphasise on the QWER row across the WASD cluster on the SCAR II. However, both ROG Strix II models have Nvidia Optimus technologies to conserve electricity by only activating the discrete GPU when required.
Asus ROG Strix SCAR II and ROG Strix Hero II versions
Asus has offered hexa-core Intel Core i7-8750 processors on the ROG Strix SCAR II and ROG Strix Hero II models with 32GB of RAM, SSD storage, as well as an optional SSHD upgrade.
Following the new ROG Strix II models, Asus unveiled the ROG Mothership that appears similar to the Surface Guru but boasts of sufficient electricity to support high-end games. The machine has an aluminum chassis using an ultra-fast, 144Hz/ 3ms G-Sync screen powered by Intel Core i9 processor, combined with Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics.
The ROG Mothership also comes with a HyperDrive Extreme storage that has a RAID 0 array with three NVMe SSDs. The machine also offers up to 64GB of all DDR4 RAM. On the connectivity front, the new version has USB Type-C based Thunderbolt 3 port, standard USB Type-C interface, four USB Type-A interfaces, HDMI, Ethernet, and an SD card slot.
What makes the Asus ROG Mothership nearer to the Surface Pro is its kickstand. However, the former has the ability to pop out the stepless kickstand automatically when the bottom edge of the lid touches a surface to permit one-handed deployment. The hinge available on the machine can be touted to supply a variety of angles for different setups, from standing directly to leaning back. In any case, there’s an air heating technology.
The new gaming notebook portfolio by Asus also includes the ROG G703 that is powered by eighth-generation Intel Core processors with an optional Intel Core i9-8950HK chip. The notebook has a 17-inch IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. It also comes with the HyperDrive Extreme storage, like this ROG Mothership.
Asus also unveiled the ROG Zephyrus S GX531 that comes with a narrow-bezel, 15.6-inch display together with 144Hz refresh speed. The ROG Zephyrus S GX531 is powered by an Intel Core i7-8750H processor.
Also unveiled at CES 2019 was the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 that sports a 17.3-inch display in a 15.7-inch wide body. This is promised to provide it an 81 per cent screen-to-body ratio. The new ROG Zephyrus S GX701 can be claimed to be the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop with 18.7mm of thickness.
Asus hasn’t shown the price details of the new ROG show versions. Nevertheless, the new versions with Nvidia GeForce RTX-series images are set to arrive from the worldwide markets in the forthcoming months.
