Starting in 2022, the ROG models featured Thermal Grizzly’s cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme technology, which further enhances liquid metal heat transfer. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium and gallium compound offers 17 times greater conductivity, in addition to reducing CPU and GPU temperatures by up to 15 degrees. Used exclusively by ROG, this material provides the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.

Asus Rog Strix Scar 18 Geforce RTX 4090

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Unleashed graphics

High-end components require power, especially when it comes to boosting the performance of your GPU. Powered by NVIDIA DLSS 3, the ultra-efficient Ada Lovelace architecture, and Max-Q technologies, the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 laptop GPU fully unleashes to achieve a maximum TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost.

NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus

With NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus, the laptop can automatically route images from the independent GPU directly to the display using a MUX switch, bypassing the integrated graphics card. This path improves performance by 5 to 10% compared to machines without a MUX switch, which guarantees you an optimal gaming experience, all without needing to touch a single button. This automatic switching also preserves your machine’s battery life, as it can dynamically switch from high-power independent GPU to low-power integrated GPU. No matter what you do, your machine switches to the most optimized mode without you having to lift a finger.

Get more with MUX

Modern gaming laptops route images from the GPU through the processor’s integrated graphics cards before reaching the display. This helps improve battery life but prevents your GPU from performing at its best. We’re integrating a Switch MUX into all ROG 2023 laptops. For competitive gaming, you can switch to a direct GPU mode which reduces latency and increases performance by 15% on average.

ROG Nebula Display

Breathtaking design

The Strix SCAR 18 2023 continues to embody ROG’s distinctive style. Its sleek chassis, unique RGB accents, and distinct gaming vibe make a Strix laptop always stand out from the crowd. New for 2023, the Strix SCAR features an RGB rear panel, which, combined with per-key RGB lighting on the keyboard and light bar, makes this laptop the beacon of gaming power from every angle.

Launch the Offensive

The difference between victory and defeat can come down to a single keystroke, that is why the SCAR 18 features a professional esports-grade keyboard designed to ensure victory. Built to last, the Strix SCAR keyboard switches are rated to withstand over 20 million key presses, while the n-key rollover feature ensures your system will never miss a command, even if you press multiple keys at once. The SCAR features a large keyboard with media controls and dedicated hotkeys that default to volume and Armory Crate controls but can be customized for different functions or macros. With per-key RGB and Aura Sync customization, the SCAR will always adopt the look that matches your mood.

Sound Like In The Studio

Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward-firing woofers to create an authentic soundstage when you game. High-resolution audio lets you listen to your music in the same quality as when it was recorded. Two-way AI Noise Cancelation processes incoming and outgoing audio signals to filter out all background noise, ensuring your calls, chats, and streams go through without disturbance.

THE LAPTOP PC OF ALL EXTREMES!

Ultra-fast DDR Memory

Thanks to the brand new DDR5 standard, enjoy the performance of its RAM with 32GB 4800 MHz SO-DIMM x2, for writing times 50% faster than machines equipped with DDR4 memory. This impressively fast memory accelerates all laptop tasks, from intense gaming to simple internet browsing.

More Agreeable, Faster, More Resistant.

Take on the biggest challenges with confidence with a PCIe Gen4 SSD. With a raw throughput of up to 7000 MB/s, large files, and games load in the blink of an eye. Its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU graphics card has 16GB GDDR6 memory for more than real rendering.

When Power Rhymes With Efficiency

Power through any game or project with the Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor, featuring a TDP of up to 65W and a hybrid architecture built from the ground up for Windows 11. With up to 8 cores of performance and 16 cores of efficiency, AAA games and streaming are effortless.

ROG Intelligent Cooling

All-round ventilation

Hot air needs to escape somewhere, so we redesigned the SCAR 18’s exhaust vents to give it the best possible flow. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust duct, the SCAR 18 retains its side vents, allowing it to exhaust hot air from the system. We even moved the heatsinks closer to the vents themselves, allowing hot air to exit the machine in a straight line and avoiding any recirculation.

Tri-Fan Technology

At the heart of any good laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Tri-Fan technology directs air through precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly to internal components to keep them cool in all circumstances. A third auxiliary fan also helps send extra heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, helping to keep the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.

*Temperature improvements compared to the previous generation of thermal paste, based on ASUS internal testing. Thermal conductivity compared to the industry standard.

Daily endurance – Battery Specs

The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to go the distance. Featuring a 90Wh battery, the laptop can easily browse the web for hours away from the outlet before needing to be recharged. For greater flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging is supported up to 100W. When recharged using the included 330W adapter, the SCAR 18 can go from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.

Stable Interaction

In contemporary multiplayer games, a stable internet connection is imperative. The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to join the fight with a dedicated RJ45 port, as well as the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard. Stay connected to networks that support Wi-Fi 6E, and enjoy access to the latest wireless band, without clutter or interference from other wireless devices in your home, so you’ll never lag again.
