The new ROG Strix Scar Edition is built for the next generation of gamers looking to take their game to the next level. It's built for high frame rates in first person shooter games, thanks to a powerful Intel Core i7 processor, GTX graphics, and a high refresh rate gaming display. The 8th-Generation Scar Edition brings several refinements to the series, including: an AURA SYNC RGB keyboard and 12V fans for improved thermal performance.
Built for smoother gameplay
A hallmark of the Strix Scar Edition Series is its high refresh rate displays (including both 120Hz and 144Hz variants). Higher refresh rate displays deliver a multitude more frames within the same amount of time compared to standard 60Hz displays. For many gamers, the difference of going from 60Hz to 120Hz is far more impactful than switching to a higher screen resolution. High refresh rates result in smoother playback, allowing you to gain a competitive advantage in fast-paced FPS games.
8th-Generation Intel Core Processors
Enjoy a vast leap in gaming and productivity performance with Intel's first mobile Core i7 processor with 6 cores and 12 threads. This gives you a boost in performance over previous generation quad-core processors by 23%.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series

Ergonomic and Durable
The Strix SCAR Edition's ergonomic gaming keyboard is built to withstand the action, with 20-million keystroke durability and N-Key Rollover. Its 1.8mm key travel distance provides a tactile feeling for precise control.
