Performance
PEERLESS PERFORMANCE​

Draw more frames and win more games with the raw horsepower of the brand new 2022 ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE with Windows 11 Pro. Tackle any enemy with an Intel® Core™ i9-12950HX processor, paired with an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti Laptop GPU with up to an incredible 175W max TGP. Leave loading screens behind thanks to PCIe Gen4x4 solid state storage in a RAID 0 array. With DDR5 memory bringing more bandwidth than ever before, the SCAR is ready to leave the competition in the dust.

12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 CPU
Power through any game or project with an Intel® Core™ i9-12950HX processor with up to 65W TDP and a hybrid architecture built from the ground up for Windows 11. With up to 8 Performance cores and 8 Efficiency cores, AAA gaming and streaming is effortless.

GPU Power Unleashed
Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to maximizing your GPU’s performance. The NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W, thanks to the extra 25W available with Dynamic Boost. Higher power limits allow the card to boost higher for longer, squeezing the absolute most performance out of your machine and ensuring you have highest framerates possible.

Modern gaming laptops route frames from the GPU through the CPU’s integrated graphics before reaching the display. This offers better battery life, but prevents your GPU from giving its absolute best performance. So we’re bringing a MUX Switch to all 2022 ROG laptops. For competitive games, you can switch to a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 5-10%.

GEFORCE RTX™
THE ULTIMATE PLAY

BOOST PERFORMANCE WITH AI
NVIDIA DLSS gives games a speed boost with uncompromised image quality. Crank up the settings and resolution for an even better visual experience.

MORE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES
Ray Tracing is the holy grail of graphics. It simulates how light behaves in the real-world to produce the most realistic and immersive graphics for gamers and creators – and runs fast thanks to 2nd gen RT Cores.

OPTIMIZED POWER AND PERFORMANCE
NVIDIA Max-Q is a suite of technologies powered by AI that optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.

Blazing Fast DDR5 Memory
Leveraging the brand new DDR5 standard, enjoy a huge generational performance jump to 4800Mhz, with write times 50% faster than DDR4 equipped machines. This ultra fast memory makes all aspects of the laptop feel snappy, from intense gaming to light web browsing.

Better. Faster. Stronger.
Take on even the largest projects with confidence and a PCIE Gen4 SSD configured in RAID 0. With raw throughput up to 7000MB/s, massive files and large games will load in the blink of an eye.

ROG Intelligent Cooling
Powerful components require a robust cooling solution. The 2022 ROG SCAR 17 SE utilizes Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU. An ultra-high performance thermal interface material, Conductonaut Extreme can keep these components up to 15°C Ccooler than traditional thermal pastes. When paired with a custom vapor chamber and four dedicated exhaust vents, this thermal solution transfers heat out of the system incredibly efficiently. ROG’s Intelligent Cooling™ technology allows critical components like the CPU and GPU to maintain higher boost frequencies for longer periods of time, keeping your framerate smooth and steady even during extended gaming sessions. The SCAR 17 SE keeps noise in check, too: when in Performance mode, the Strix SCAR does not exceed 40 dB.

Beat the heat
Heat dissipation is faster and more efficient with our vapor chamber design, which vastly increases surface area compared to traditional heatpipe systems. Unlike conventional heat pipes that only transfer heat along their axis, vapor chamber designs spread heat across their entire surface, allowing the vapor chamber to rapidly absorb and dissipate waste heat without adding extra bulk to the machine. This efficient heat transfer also keeps the surface of the laptop cooler, keeping your hands comfortable for the entire game.

*Vapor chamber design only available on G733CX. Visual effect is for demonstration only.

Unleash the Grizzly
Cooling is one of the greatest challenges facing gaming laptops, and ROG is constantly pushing the envelope. This drive led to liquid metal, which is extremely effective at transferring thermal energy between surfaces like a processor die and heatsink.

The SCAR 17 SE takes this evolution one step further, with the use of Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU. This ultra-high performance thermal interface material can reduce temperatures by up to a staggering 15°C compared to traditional thermal pastes.

*Temperature improvements compared to regular thermal paste, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

UNLOCK THE CIPHER
The sleek aesthetic of the 2022 ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE holds an extra secret in addition to cutting-edge components: specially developed invisible ink. Traditional invisible ink wouldn’t adhere firmly when applied to the metal lid, so our R&D team painstakingly created a new substance from scratch. It took six months and seven formulations to perfect, but this new metallic textured ink has passed all our wear and durability tests. A subtle cypher on the lid of the laptop can be brightened with the included UV flashlight, exposing hidden messages in cryptic cyber-stylized text.

*The inks on the lid will fade over time. Prolonged exposure to daylight or ultraviolet (UV) rays will speed up the fading process of inks and cause the lid to change color.

SCAR Runner Giveaway Campaign
Launching in tandem with the Strix SCAR 17 SE is an all-new, first-person parkour game set in the ROG SAGA universe. Hurtle across the rooftops of Goemon City and solve puzzles to catch your informant in time. Clues can be found hidden on the chassis of the SCAR 17 SE.

We are also launching a giveaway campaign to celebrate the release of SCAR Runner, with prizes ranging all the way up to an ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE, ROG SLASH apparel, an ROG Phone 5s, or a whole peripheral package.

DESIGN
CUSTOMIZE YOUR LOOK

Customizable Armor Caps allow you to add extra flair to your machine. Choose from three bundled options in the box, or 3D print your own with downloadable templates for a 100% unique design. The semi-translucent palm rest gives you a sneak peek at the internals, and redesigned rubber feet help to eliminate vibrations for smooth, quiet gaming sessions. Coupled with colorful accents, the sporty feel of the Strix SCAR resonates across the entire chassis.

CHANGE UP YOUR LOOK
Add a pop of personality to your chassis with Customizable Armor Caps. Two additional color options come in the box and swap out effortlessly, letting you switch up your style anytime. For a fully customized touch, we also have a 3D printing template that makes it easy to create original looks of your own.

DISPLAY
LIGHTNING FAST, CRYSTAL CLEAR

You can’t beat the enemy if you can’t see them coming. The Strix SCAR has ultra fast panel options for every scenario, making sure you’ll never miss a moment. The 17” machine offers FHD 360Hz or QHD 240Hz. With refresh rates that fast and response times of just 3ms, you can make pixel perfect decisions even in the most frenetic firefights. Each IPS panel also offers fantastic color, Dolby Vision HDR, and Adaptive-Sync for a stellar gaming and viewing experience.

AUDIO
STUDIO-QUALITY SOUND

Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward firing woofers to create an authentic sound stage for your games. Hi-Res audio ensures you hear your music in the same quality it was recorded. Two Way AI Noise Cancelation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction.

TWO-WAY AI NOISE CANCELATION
Our advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation technology runs on the CPU, which frees up the GPU to hit higher FPS. It works with any input device and also with downstream connections, letting you remove noise from both your own mic input and from incoming feeds. Noise-canceling settings can even be customized per program, filtering specific apps like voice chat without affecting game audio you want to remain untouched.
