Alongside the Asus ROG Strix G17 (2020) we also stumbled upon a top-of-the-range team from the company, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 (G732LXS), built around a towering 17.3-inch IPS panel with 1920’s Full HD resolution. x 1080 pixels that achieve a response time of 300 Hz along with a response time of 3 milliseconds.

Above this equipment we only have its variant with the Core i9-10980HK , which despite its name inspiring great performance, offers only 200 extra MHz with a huge cost overrun.
All of this is refrigerated by means of an advanced refrigeration system accompanied by a thermal compound in the form of a liquid metal that promises an additional reduction in temperatures by 12ºC , and that is why, thanks to ROG Boot OC technology , an automatic overclock of the 100 MHz GPU .
