Built for the sharpest shooters in the meanest gunfights, ROG Strix SCAR Edition is a gaming laptop designed to give you a competitive edge in FPS games like Counter-Strike, Overwatch, and more. Experience the power brought by the 7th Gen Intel Core i7 quad-core processors, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. Coupled with a 120Hz refresh rate IPS display, your gaming experience has never been so smooth and responsive, without any lag or motion blur. Strix SCAR Edition also features desktop-style Aura Sync-enabled keyboard, N-key rollover, and fast-actuating keys, keeping you focus on the maps — so you can take out targets with absolute precision.
Taking both its name and design inspiration from the FN SCAR assault rifle, Strix SCAR Edition is designed for top marksmen. Like its namesake, Strix SCAR Edition pairs agility with performance, packing all its lethal firepower into a compact chassis with a thin 2.4cm profile, and an overall weight of just 2.6kg.1 And it looks the part, too — its Gunmetal Grey finish mirrors that of the deadly weapon.
Strix SCAR Edition is powered by the 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor and a NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card for extreme gaming experience. Cutting-edge storage, such as a 128GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB Seagate FireCuda SSHD, plus 8GB of DDR4 memory, guarantees superior overall performance. Whichever configuration you choose, Strix SCAR Edition is armed to the teeth, with combat-proven computing power to rule the game.
The difference between defeat and victory is measured in fractions of a second. Strix SCAR Edition upgrades your vision, with an IPS-level display with a 120Hz refresh rate deliver smooth, accurate visuals, as well as reduce lag and motion blur. The 300cd/m2 panel ensures 20%-brighter visuals than low-end IPS panels from competitors. Give your aim an upgrade, and sharpen your sights for the crucial moment of the shot.
Strix SCAR Edition has a specially-designed cooling system that improves airflow and system durability to keep you going during intense gaming sessions. The intelligent thermal design employs three fans that automatically adjust themselves to optimize CPU, GPU, and VRAM performance. Intake vents situated above the keyboard and underside of the chassis improve airflow into the system; while the patented trapezoid-cut lid design doesn’t interfere with the air tunnels and hot exhaust at the rear of the laptop. The patented Anti-Dust Cooling system expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability. In addition, the two main fans have been upgraded to 12V and spin much faster than regular 5V fans, boosting airflow and increasing air pressure to improve cooling efficiency — so you’ll keep a cool head even under fire!
Strix SCAR Edition puts decisive control at your fingertips, with a brand-new desktop-inspired keyboard layout featuring four hotkeys, four customizable RGB-backlit zones, and ergonomic 0.25mm keycap curves that are comfortable to the touch. ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology enables earlier actuation and a longer over-stroke distance, enabling fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. Specially highlighted WASD keys and N-key rollover further boost your precision, and with the action guaranteed for 20-million key presses your kill count will just keep on rising!
Aura Sync technology gives you the freedom to customize and sync up light effects with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. With a full spectrum of colors to choose from, as well as seven different lighting modes that can be accessed via the Aura control panel, Aura Sync technology lets you express your gaming persona, or the feel of the game you’re currently playing.
Strix SCAR Edition delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio so every action sounds real, all powerfully delivered through two expansive side-firing speakers which provide surround audio effects so you’ll know where an enemy is approaching from. With this immersive stereo audio, even the quietest sounds can be heard, so you’ll pick up on every hidden movement. Smart-amplifier technology monitors the audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass. Sonic Studio III provides high quality in-game audio, as well as improved streaming and audio recording for perfect voice pickup and noise reduction. Every little advantage aids your march to victory — and Strix SCAR Edition ensures you hear every precise audio cue!

ROG GameFirst, GameVisual, Sonic Studio, Sonic Radar, Aura Core, as well as XSplit Gamecaster, can also be accessed through ROG Gaming Center. With ROG Gaming Center, you can even save different game settings and parameters in the cloud so you can access them even when you change laptops.
