GPU Power Unleashed
Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to maximizing your GPU’s performance. Powered by NVIDIA DLSS 3, ultra-efficient Ada Lovelace arch, and Max-Q Technologies, the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4080 Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost.
NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus
With NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus, the laptop can automatically route frames from the discrete GPU directly to the display using a MUX switch, bypassing the integrated graphics. This pathing improves performance 5-10% compared to machines without a MUX Switch, making sure you get the absolute best gaming experience—all without needing touch a single button. This automatic switching also preserves your machine's battery life, as it can dynamically transition between the high power discrete GPU and the lower power integrated GPU. No matter what you’re doing, your machine will switch to the most optimized mode without you having to lift a finger.

Game. Stream. Create.
The Strix G series is built from the ground up for gamers — and, of course, game developers. The Strix G18 can run all of the latest game engines, enabling you to unlock your creativity and try your hand at making the next great game. Whether you’re a digital artist, streamer, video editor, or dabble with animation and game development, the Strix G18 has all the horsepower you need to take your creations to the next level. Featuring up to an Intel® Core™ i9 processor and up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 40 Series Laptop GPU, complex projects on popular development tools like Unity and Autodesk render in a snap. You have what it takes to be the best on the battlefield, but are you ready to design the next one?
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix G18’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, whose fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. The full-width heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely-packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 92% increase from the 2022 Strix G17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall airflow.
Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the G18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU*, the G18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.

You can’t beat the enemy if you don’t see them coming. The Strix G18 has ultra-fast panel options for every scenario, making sure you’ll never miss a moment. For the first time ever, this 18-inch machine offers a QHD 240Hz Nebula display. A 16:10 panel with 500 nits of brightness, 100% DCI-P3 coverage and 3ms response times, the Strix G18 has pixel-perfect precision even in the most frenetic firefights. The Strix G18 is also available with a Full HD 165Hz panel, with each option offering fantastic color, Dolby Vision, Adaptive-Sync support, and an 89% screen-to-body ratio for a stellar gaming and viewing experience.
Designed to Win. Built for Victory.
The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs and considerations come with gamers first, from the chassis design, lighting integration, software controls, and macro functions. These ROG exclusive design features not only give you a competitive advantage, but they make sure you never blend in with the crowd.
When you want to tweak settings, monitor temperatures, or tinker with your laptop, Armoury Crate is your command center. Real-time monitoring allows you to see what your GPU, CPU and memory are doing. RGB can be adjusted down to a game-by-game basis with Aura Sync. Fan and power profiles allow you to change the acoustics, power delivery, and thermal characteristics of the laptop on the fly. And exclusive game deals keep your library topped off at all times.
PRESS THE ATTACK
The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the Strix G18 has a full-size keyboard designed to secure the win. Overstroke technology offers sublime work and play, reducing key actuation and improving responsiveness. Built with gamers in mind, the keyboard features spaced function keys for intuitive identification and dedicated hotkeys for quick access to essential commands. Large arrow keys allow for more accurate control in the heat of battle. A larger touchpad means easier tracking across all of your applications, while per-key RGB lighting lets you choose from millions of colors on every key for endless customization. You can also create game specific layouts via Armoury Crate, making every game feel unique.
Dedicated gaming hotkeys sit just above the left side of the keyboard for quick access to the volume and mic mute controls, operating modes, and Armoury Crate. They are also fully customizable, and can be programmed to launch apps, set as a function key, or used as a macro. The Strix G has all of the tools you need for victory.
Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology registers keypresses earlier in the stroke, enabling a more responsive experience for serious gaming and work. Triggering earlier means faster, effortless inputs with greater accuracy.
