ASUS ROG introduces RTX-powered Strix II Gaming Laptops


ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has finally released the new ROG Strix gaming laptops which are powered by next-generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics.


The ROG Strix SCAR II comes in 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch display options with the same 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Both versions are draped in a shooter-inspired motif that uses splashes of camouflage to create a unique aesthetic fit for the battlefield. Highlighted WASD keys further reinforce the SCAR’s roots and ensure that you can easily find the home row for FPS gaming.

Both versions of the ROG Strix SCAR come with options of either an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM, or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. All variants are equipped with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM, and 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD + 1TB SSHD for storage. Price starts at Php119,995.

ROG Strix Hero

The ROG Strix Hero is powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics, the ROG Strix Hero will enable higher frame rates in the latest MOBA Games, and guarantee that it will run whatever next-gen game you throw at it. Like with the SCAR, NVIDIA Optimus ensures that battery life and power will be conserved whenever the discrete GPU isn’t being used. The ROG Strix Hero was priced at Php119,995.

ROG Zephyrus S (17in) GX701

Another compelling announcement made by ASUS ROG during CES 2019 comes in the form of the world’s slimmest 17” gaming laptop powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q. The ROG Zephyrus S GX701 is the first-ever Zephyrus series model that carries a 17-in display.

Taking its cues from the original Zephyrus S GX531, the ROG Zephyrus S GX701 sports the same super-narrow bezel 144Hz/3ms Full HD screen, but adds NVIDIA G-SYNC and Optimus technology into the mix, as well as delivering a PANTONE-validated panel. Cooling its ultra-powerful RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU is the same patented Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) and dual 12-volt fans and a robust thermal management system.

The ROG Zephyrus S GX701 will come with up to 24GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM and up to 1TB NVMe PCIe SSD storage. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.

ASUS ROG RTX - Eye Metallic Sculpture

Acknowledging the commitment of the members of the Republic in banning their gaming setups online, ASUS ROG also launches the ROG Unleashed program to give back to its end-users. All ROG notebooks will come bundled with an ROG Eye Metallic Sculpture that will definitely add spice to a hardcore gamer’s corner.

End-users who want to experience the next level of gaming technologies can get their hands on the ROG Strix SCAR and Hero GL504 and the ROG Strix SCAR GL704 powered by up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. These new-generation of gaming laptops will be available at ROG Districts and authorized retailers nationwide, including the ASUS ROG Strongholds in Lazada and Shopee.
