New ads rain down at 2021 CES, where it is ASUS He set the bar high enough to last ROG Strix laptop. In addition to the 360 Hz display, these devices have a 3ms response time, accompanied by adequate hardware performance. The apartments can be developed up to the RTX 3080 video card, which is practically the pinnacle in this area. You can read the official press release below.
The The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announces the Strix SCAR 15 and Strix SCAR 17 premium laptops, Which was designed from the ground up to provide an uncompromising experience for the athletic competitors in the tournaments.
Pioneering Strix SCAR 17 includes the latest innovations to keep the most demanding sporty runners ahead. Features the world’s fastest laptop screen with 360Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time; Powered by the powerful new GeForce RTX ™ 30 GPUs and the Ryzen ™ 5000 series mobile processors; And it realizes the full potential of devices through radically redesigned fans and other cooling improvements.
“Just like last year – the Strix series introduces the most powerful laptops to ROG gamers. By choosing the 17” version of Strix SCAR, you get the highest level of CPU and GPU for optimum performance. This year, another major improvement has been made. When we switched to the latest AMD Ryzen 9 5000 series CPU and introduced liquid metal cooling to increase low noise levels, improve heat capacity and battery life. New Strix SCAR also provides an incredibly fast 360 Hz IPS panel and opto-mechanical keyboard for the toughest gamers. This year, the updated Strix series will be one of the hottest series with the increasing demand for laptops for athletes and gamers for professional gamers in recent years. “ – Benjamin Yeh, CEO of ASUS East EMEA PC & Gaming said
Strix SCAR 15 and 17 are the first to feature an optical mechanical keyboard in a Strix laptop, providing fast response times and a high degree of durability. The larger display case ratio brings the user closer to action, while the smaller space and larger battery support maximum portability with Type C charging. The four speakers, backed by Dolby Atmos, provide a more immersive sound experience, and AI bi-directional noise filters that process input and output sounds To make team conversation crystal clear.
The all-new design takes form and function to the next level in the new Strix SCAR series and delivers a bold style inspired by the sporty gear. It features aesthetically pleasing materials, customizable container highlights, and lighting upgrades that allow for overall personalization.
ROG today also announced Strix G15 and Strix G17, which merge the DNA of the new ROG gamer laptop into a stylish design that all gamers can access. These systems complement the 2021 ROG Strix family, which was developed to improve the everyday gaming experience and give serious esports gamers the edge they need to succeed.
The world’s fastest laptop screen
For esports players, even an unnecessary moment of waiting can lead to a chance to win. So ROG has been at the forefront of delivering a high refresh rate for gamer laptops and has consistently pushed the boundaries of board technology. Strix SCAR 17 features the world’s fastest laptop screen, 17.3-inch IPS panel that combines Full HD resolution, 360Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Compared to the competition standard 240Hz, the 360Hz refresh rate reduces the delay between new frames by 33%.
The smaller Strix SCAR 15 has a 15.6-inch screen, a 300Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time. Gamers who want not to be interrupted by more detail can also install the SCAR 15 and 17 models with new WQHD panels with a refresh rate of 165Hz and a response time of 3ms. The higher resolution of 2560 x 1440 of these screens is made more attractive with the DCI-P3 Cinema Color gamut.
For Strix, Adaptive-Sync technology is now standard across the entire series. Synchronize display refresh rate with the GPU frame rate to eliminate screen shake, reduce stutter, and reduce input lag.
The latest NVIDIA and AMD processors
2021 Strix SCAR laptops use the combined power of the GeForce RTX 3080 GPU and Ryzen 9 5900HX processor to charge their updated high-speed displays.
Based on NVIDIA’s new Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 3080 can be pulled to 1645MHz with 115W of ROG Boost and Dynamic Boost with an additional 15W. It combines new multi-stream processors with second-generation RT cores and third-generation Tensor cores to enable more realistic packet-tracking graphics and advanced AI features. These enhancements deliver a lifelike appearance while taking refreshing image to new heights. It supports NVIDIA Reflex technologies that reduce latency in some multiplayer games and NVIDIA Streaming Effects brighten up the live stream instantly.
The Ryzen 9 5900HX uses 8 cores and 16 threads in its operation for power-intensive multitasking like gaming, streaming, recording, and interacting with the crowd. AMD’s new Zen 3 architecture maximizes clock performance thanks to reduced cache latency and a number of other structural changes. Robust cooling and ROG’s power supply allow the 5900HX to run continuously up to 54W when the GPU is active and at 80W by itself. The CPU is adjustable in clockwise direction so that users can increase their speed by overdrying.
In its top configurations, the SCAR 15 and 17 are available with 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a dual super-capacity 1 TB SSD in RAID 0. Each NVMe SSD receives four PCIe Express bandwidth bands, directly from the CPU , Which can upgrade RAID 0 transfer rates up to 7000MB / s. Memory and storage can be fully expanded with an easy-to-upgrade design and a bolt-on lock for quick access to the system’s SO-DIMM and dual M.2 sockets.
Optical mechanical keyboard
Standard laptop keyboards push conductive films together to detect keystrokes. This electrical method generates a lot of signal noise on contact and requires a return delay of 5 ms for accuracy. Because latency is a defect in sports, the new optical mechanical switches in the 2021 Strix SCAR Series employ a precise infrared laser beam, which eliminates recoil delay and reduces response time to just 0.2ms. The optical mechanism is more durable than traditional alternatives and extends key life to 100 million keystrokes.
Each key has a keyboard that’s 1.9mm long to improve the overall feel, and the keyboards are slightly curved, keeping the user’s finger in the middle. The design is inspired by desktop keyboards and includes dedicated keyboard shortcuts that make it easy to access dynamic volume, mute the microphone, and other controls. ROG CoolZone technology places strategic air vents around the WASD keys so user fingers stay cool and surface temperature can be reduced by up to 14% compared to other laptops.
The new Strix laptops also feature an improved touchpad with 85% more active area than last year’s models and made of frosted glass, combining smooth touch and precision for better user control. The touchpad becomes an illuminated touchpad for more intuitive input on 15.6-inch models that are too narrow to accommodate a dedicated numeric keypad.
The 2021 Strix SCAR and Strix G Series models have up to 7% less floor space compared to last year’s models, making them easy to carry. The high capacity 90Wh battery enables longer operation than ever without mains connection, i.e. up to 12 hours of video playback.
Mobility is enhanced by support for fast charging, which allows the battery to reach 50% charge in just 33 minutes. Fast charging via USB Type-C is also supported, and is compatible with 100W adapters and portable charger. Type-C charging support is a novelty in the Strix series this year, giving users more flexibility when traveling.
