ROG STRIX SCAR 16

BEAT THE BEST. BREAK ALL LIMITS.

 

 

The Pinnacle of Performance

Dominate the Windows 11 Pro battlefield with the all-new ROG Strix SCAR 16. Introducing a 16-inch screen to the SCAR lineup for the first time, see the enemy more clearly than ever before. Powered by a 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX Processor and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 Laptop GPU with a max TGP of 175W, the SCAR 16 easily handles even the most demanding games. It also comes with a dedicated MUX Switch with support for NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, enabling you to easily harness the true power of your GPU when gaming. With support for up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM and up to 4TB of PCIe Gen4x4 storage, the SCAR 16 can easily game, stream, and create content all at the same time without breaking a sweat. For the ultimate gaming laptop, look no further than the Strix SCAR 16.

 

 

Power, meet efficiency

Power through any game or project with an Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor, featuring up to a 65W TDP and a hybrid architecture built from the ground up for Windows 11. With up to 8 Performance cores and 16 Efficiency cores, AAA gaming is flawless and streaming is effortless.

24 Cores 16 E-cores + 8 P-cores | 32 Threads | Up to 175W PL2 Manual Mode | Up to 65W TDP

 

 

Graphics 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™ 4090 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.

 

 

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.

COOLING

To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 16’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 174,183mm², a 62.59% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 15. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 16 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 SCAR 16’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.

Display

For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 16 offers an incredible Mini LED Nebula HDR panel with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 1100 nits of peak brightness for stunning HDR gameplay. The 16-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio panel with an 90% screen-to-body ratio is perfect for fast moving arena shooters and other frenetic games. The SCAR 16 can also be equipped with a Full HD 165Hz panel. No matter what kind of gamer you are, the SCAR’s new 16-inch panel is sure to impress.

 

 

Designed to Win Built for Victory

The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs come with gamers in mind, from the chassis, 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.

 

 

Endless Customization

xxWhen 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 on 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. xx

 

 

Press the Attack

The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the SCAR 16 has a professional esports grade keyboard designed to secure the win. Built to last, the Strix SCAR's keyboard switches are rated to last over 20 million presses, and n-key rollover guarantees your system will never miss command even if you’re pressing multiple keys at once. The SCAR has a full-sized keyboard, with dedicated media controls and dedicated hotkeys that are tuned for volume and Armoury Crate controls by default, but can be customized for different functions or macros. And with per key RGB and full Aura Sync customization, the SCAR will always have the looks to match your mood.

 




 

Dedicated hotkeys

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 SCAR 16 has all the tools you need for victory.

 

 

Overstroke technology

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.

 

 

Large touch pad

Improve everyday comfort and usability with a 10% larger touchpad, and new for 2023, the SCAR 16’s touchpad also comes with a glass coating for a more premium feel. More space means greater precision along with more comfortable hand movements and gestures while you’re navigating. Despite still being a 15-inch chassis, the SCAR 16 also now includes a touchpad-based NumberPad, giving you even more options when using your device.

 

 

Showstopping Design

The 2023 Strix SCAR 16 continues to embody the distinct style of ROG. With sharp chassis designs, unique RGB accents, and a distinct gaming vibe, a Strix laptop will always stand out from the crowd. New for 2022, the Strix SCAR features a rear glow RGB panel, which paired together with per-key RGB illumination on the keyboard and the light bar make the laptop a beacon of gaming power from any angle.

 

 

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.

 

 

Quad Speakers With Dolby Atmos

Two tweeters and two woofers powered by Smart Amp offer richer sound with 2.8x more volume, 3x more powerful bass, and up to 3x the dynamic range of alternatives. This quad-speaker setup delivers immersive surround sound optimized by Dolby Atmos technology to deliver balanced, multidimensional audio across the full spectrum without losing clarity or detail.

For flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging is supported up to 100W. When charging using the supplied 330W power adapter, the SCAR 16 can recharge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.

ITS A BEAST

Absolute beast

I purchased this laptop about 2 months ago from XoticPC and am absolutely loving it. The 16" QHD panel is spectacular - easily the best laptop panel I've experienced. Flawless. I went with the i9-13980HX CPU, RTX 4080 GPU, 32GB DDR5 4800MHz ram, and a 1TB 980 Pro m.2 drive. Everything is working without an issues whatsoever. Excessive heating has been an issue with some laptops with these specs, but the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 16 does an admirable job keeping the GPU and CPU running within tolerance and relatively cool. Make use of the different options in the Armoury Crate, it does help. The laptop is great for multi-use too - gaming is smooth and the picture is crystal clear - I mostly play Battlefield 2042 on this machine, and it's excellent (I use an external mouse for gaming). This machine is also pretty snappy with rendering (Daz3D) and Photoshop. For MS Word, text is clear and not jagged as some of the newer gaming panels are. Very happy with this machine - handles anything I throw at it, and proving to be a great all-rounder as well as excellent for gaming. Go for it.

Excellent Powerhouse Laptop

This laptop is fantastic. Had to wait forever to receive it since it was a pre-order but I could not be happier with it. It is a powerhouse! Keyboard feels great, screen is very rich, love the dedicated function keys. Overall it was a great purchase for my needs.

Comes Setup Perfectly

Not only is the PC functioning extremely well, but they cut down on the BS you normally have to deal with when getting a windows PC. The add on cooling system has worked out really well too. If you spend all this money for a nice rig, then you may as well spend more to keep it cool and silent!

Love it

It is loud when cooling but I expected that with it being an air cooled 4080 laptop
