ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition 2022. Asus Announces World’s Most Powerful Laptop!

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the all-new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition 2022 gaming laptop. This upgraded version of Strix SCAR incorporates the latest hardware and cutting-edge cooling solutions to deliver first-class gaming experiences. A custom steam chamber, combined with Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to the CPU and GPU, allows the Strix Scar 17 SE to push the boundaries of its components. It also has a unique cyberpunk aesthetic with invisible ink never seen before, applied directly to the metal chassis.


At CES 2022, ROG introduced the ROG Strix SCAR 2022, which delivers advanced gaming performance with the latest components from Intel and NVIDIA. At Computex 2022, the ROG ROG introduces the Strix SCAR 17 SE, a special edition packed with even more power under the bonnet. ROG designed the Strix Scar 17 SE for players who require an uncompromising, tournament-ready machine.

The improvements are visible right from the beating heart of the machine, powered by the all-new Intel CoreTM i9-12950HX, an incredibly powerful 65W laptop processor. With boost frequencies up to 5.2 GHz on its performance cores, the single-threaded power never diminishes, delivering high frame rates in the latest esports games. When set to manual mode in Armory Crate, this 65W processor can reach a staggering maximum turbo power (PL2) of 175W for a limited period of time, allowing the PC to have an extra hat, like a powerful machine. content creation when the dedicated GPU is disabled. The ROG Strix Scar 17 SE was able to achieve an incredible score of 22,257 in the Cinebench R23 multithreaded test in Turbo mode, a result that competes with the desktop performance. The NVIDIA GeForce RTXTM 3080 Ti Notebook GPU also offers a maximum TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost, designed to deliver the most images on its QHD 240Hz or Full HD 360Hz display capabilities. Both monitors have a response time of 3 ms, support Dolby Vision and are Adaptive Sync compatible, allowing gamers to experience amazing images in the game or watch their favorite content.

The other components in the machine also show power. The ROG Strix Scar 17 SE offers up to 64GB of 4800MHz DDR5 RAM, PCIe® Gen 4 storage in RAID 0, making loading times faster than ever, and a dedicated Switch MUX for maximum gaming performance. WiFi 6E and a 2.5 Gb / s Ethernet port allow players to safely start an online game wherever they are. The ROG Strix Scar 17 SE has next-generation connectivity, including two USB Type-C® ports, one of which supports ThunderboltTM 4, and a full HDMI® 2.1 port offering 120Hz 4K video output.


Adding more powerful components is only half the equation, as these high-end parts require unstoppable cooling to maximize their performance. The ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE contains all of ROG’s smart cooling innovations to help the machine reach its full potential. ROG has been using Thermal Grizzly liquid metal in various laptops over the past three years, reducing CPU temperatures by up to 10 ° C compared to traditional thermal pastes. This year, ROG’s engineering team once again partnered with Thermal Grizzly to develop an even better liquid metal formula called Conductonaut Extreme, which ROG Strix Scar 17 SE uses on both CPU and GPU. With temperatures around 5 ° C cooler than standard liquid metal1, this was the first step in unlocking the PC’s true performance potential.

The advanced machine also has a custom steam chamber that covers 48.8% of the motherboard, allowing for excellent heat transfer from the CPU, GPU and critical power components. Combined with four heatsinks with ultra-thin copper fins measuring just 0.1mm and updated Arc Flow fans, the ROG Strix Scar 17 SE can easily dissipate heat for optimum performance even during sessions.


The unique features of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE are not limited to internal components. Its chassis has the same RGB lighting and customizable Armor Caps as the standard Strix SCAR, but holds an extra secret: specially designed invisible inks. Traditionally invisible inks often used on paper would not stand the test of time when applied to the metal cover of the ROG Strix Scar 17 SE. ROG’s research and development team has therefore created a fabric that fits perfectly into the metal cover of the PC. In normal light, this fabric gets a matte metallic texture, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue. It took six months and seven formulas to perfect, but this new Invisible Ink has passed a series of wear and durability tests, giving players a unique combination of functionality and style that will definitely wow. .

This coded text also contains clues to winning SCAR Runner, a standalone first-person parkour game set in the ROG SAGA universe. SCAR Runner, coming on May 17 as an expansion to ROG CITADEL XV, follows the story of the player as they race against time to find critical information: In the city of Goemon City, a thriving metropolis of the criminal underworld, players must cross this cityscape to find out what the PKD character so desperately needs to share with ROG. Players will need to use quick reflexes to cross rooftops and industrial areas in time. To reach PKD before it disappears, players must solve a series of puzzles to find the key to unlock the codes.

This unique combination of the virtual and the physical exemplifies ROG’s goal of bridging the gap between games and real life.

ROG is also launching an award ceremony to celebrate the release of SCAR Runner. Players can enter this contest, which runs from May 17 to June 30, 2022 by registering at Gleam and playing SCAR Runner, which will allow them to win various prizes on a complete set of peripherals and accessories (monitor ROG Gaming Bundle + Mouse + Mouse Pad + headset (ROG Strix XG27AQM, ROG Gladius III Wireless, ROG Scabbard II, ROG Fusion II 500), ROG Slash Gear (ROG Slash shoulder bag, ROG Slash Bum Bag, Protective portable bag ROG Slash Laptop, ROG Slash Cobra Cap, RPG Slash Bucket Hat) and up to ROG Phone 5s and ROG Strix Scar 17 SE Complete campaign rules can be found here.
