CONTINUE TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES

By using a super-narrow-bezel display, there’s less distracting frame, so the chassis dimensions can be reduced to the minimum, making Strix SCAR II narrower than ever without sacrificing precious screen space. A unique rubber frame surrounds the display — this not only protects the display from damage when you close the lid, but also visually enhances the slimness of the bezel for a more immersive feel.
Product image
WEAPON-LIKE FINISH

Inspired by a bullet homing in on its target, Strix SCAR II features two contrasting brushed finishes that meet to create a dynamic diagonal slash across its lid. The anodized Gunmetal Gray finish mimics the dark feel of an assault rifle — a true reflection of a warfighter’s inner calm, focus, and precision.
Product image
BATTLE-DRESSED

Camouflage-inspired markings around and across the keyboard epitomize life on the battlefield. A special eight-step in-mold roller process is used to achieve the unique 3D-weave and color overlays. This technique also results in a smudge-proof surface, ensuring Strix SCAR II stays free of unsightly fingerprint marks.
Product image
LIGHT IT UP WITH AURA LIGHTING

Dim the lights, and watch Aura lighting take center stage. The ROG logo on the lid, the front light bar, transparent WASD keycaps and semi-transparent key sides allow Aura to shine brighter than ever before. Together, they add up to show off your own unique style.

COOLING DESIGN

STAY COOL UNDER FIRE

The HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help Strix SCAR II get the most out of its GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability.

UPGRADED 12V HIGH PERFORMANCE FANS WITH MORE BLADES

Strix SCAR II has two upgraded high-performance fans with 71 liquid-crystal-polymer (LCP) fan blades — 20% more than its predecessor — for improved cooling. Compared to regular 5V fans, they spin 20% faster, improve airflow by up to 42.5%, and increase air pressure by up to 92%.

* Specifications vary according to model.
Product image
EXTENDED CLADDING FOR EVEN COOLING

The unique heat-pipe design includes an extended cladding plate that soaks up heat from the CPU and GPU, and distributes it evenly to avoid thermal throttling. This keeps chipset power components below 90°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.

* Specifications vary according to model.
Product image
ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM

The Anti-Dust Cooling system is a patented centrifugal fan module with two anti-dust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the center from which it is moving. Dust particles and dirt in the fan module are blown along the fan walls, and eventually expelled out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prevents buildup on the heatsink fins and improves dust removal rate. Dust accumulation on the heatsink often results in compromised cooling performance. The Anti-Dust Cooling system delivers the cooling Strix SCAR II requires for heated gaming marathons. Fan noise also decreases since the fans aren’t overworked.
Product image
ULTRATHIN FIN DESIGN

The special copper cooling fins used in Strix Scar II are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more of them to be used in the cooling module; this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 10%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.

* Specifications vary according to model.
Product image
TRAPEZOID-CUT LID

When opened, normal laptop lids block airflow out the back which could, in some instances, cause overheating. The innovative and patented trapezoid-cut on Strix Scar II avoids this problem, and improves thermal efficiency by up to 27% over traditional designs.
Product image
HYPERFAN

Expertly tuned system profiles let you quickly adapt to different scenarios using a convenient keyboard shortcut. With the highest fan speed and frequencies, Turbo mode is the best for maximum performance. Balanced mode optimizes performance and cooling to lower noise levels under 45dB for gaming, while Silent mode goes further to take acoustics below 35dB for lighter workloads like watching movies2. With HyperFan in the ROG Armoury Crate utility, you can access a default Windows profile with stock settings, plus a Manual mode for adjusting fan speeds individually.

* GL504GM/GS models have ROG Gaming Center and Fan Overboost preinstalled. Other models come with Armoury Crate and HyperFan.



CONNECTIVITY

RANGEBOOST FOR ZERO-DEAD-SPOT WI-FI CONNECTION

ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for up to 30% more3 range, higher throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans the environment and selects the best pair of antennas to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) Gigabit Wi-Fi pushes peak wireless bandwidth up to 1.7Gbps — twice that of typical 802.11ac and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!
