The Desktop in a laptops body

So the title really said it all. This laptop is hands down one of the best money can buy. When you use it you can see it’s no joke. The price/performance ratio is WAY to good to pass up and you will not find anything more powerful or for this good a price till you see rtx 3000 series in laptops. The full size rtx 2080 super paired with the i9-10980hk, 2 TB of pcie gen 4 in raid 0, 64gb RAM, & a 300hz 17 in 1080p display... ya let’s just say my high end desktop buddies had trouble believing their eyes when reading the specs or seeing them all in a reasonably sized 17in gaming laptop.

When we fired up the Witcher 3 on ultra side by side & the laptop went and outdid 3 rtx 2000 series desktops not only in FPS delivery and FPS shown, but also download speeds, loading speeds, & multitasking all felt a touch smoother & quicker. All on a laptop that you could fit like 4 of inside any of these towers. Believe it or not the temps on this laptop (with the xotic generic laptop cooler) are surprisingly good even on a long session.

All in all this thing is a BEAST and I honestly can’t find anything truly bad about it. The ability to customize this thing with 32/64 gb ram and 3 pcie slots It’s honestly the mothership without the over the top design and more options & that 300hz display.... I have trouble seeing why I would even want a desktop now or in the future when I can have this MONSTER of a laptop or it’s next generations in an almost sleeper of a build I can take with me anywhere

Great laptop, but has issues...

Let me just start out with saying that this laptop was a great buy for me. I had just gotten out basic military training and I was ready to get back into the mix of things. This laptop has some of the best specs and looks for how thin it is. You also have several shipping options which was fantastic.

The laptop shipped out very quickly and beat my expectations for the site. The support is friendly and answered all my questions. When I got the laptop, it was everything that I expected, and more. But... also one of the first things I noticed after opening the laptop was 3 dead pixels. I payed a lot of money for this laptop (over $4200 if you include financing) and I expected more. I also payed for my screen to be ‘professionally calibrated’ along with there being a QA phase. I can’t believe this could slip through and now I will have to end up shipping it back and waiting weeks potentially.

I expected more from ROG and from XOTIC, I felt like things were rushed.

It's a beast!

I have waited for this for MONTHS for Asus to release it and I will say I am not dissapointed. EXTREMLY fast and responsive, and can run as fast as 575fps! Keystone 2 is super useful as well and the design of it is simply too good to be true. The RGB keyboard and underboard is beautiful. The overall design and performance is impeccable. However it did run into some minor issues at first when I was trying to download and install everything. Became slow, BSODd, but once I got everything installed downloaded and transferred, it's speed and power is something that's unimaginable. If you want power, this no doubt has to be top 5 most powerful laptops. Hands down period. And fully customizable? How can you NOT say no?

Lives up to the hype

I bought the latest ROG Strix Scar model complete with 32 GB of RAM, an i9-10900HK cpu, and an RTX 2080 Super GPU. I am very pleased with the performance. This laptop competes quite handily with my desktop, and can even surpass it in some situations. I highly recommend using it with a cooling, if only to give the laptop more space to breath. That said, you expect top-notch, high-end gaming, and that is exactly what you get here.

Some minor things I like: It boots up so fast. The Asus tool also launches immediately when you press the dedicated button. This was an issue with my previous laptop from another maker. You can also easily setup your phone as a second screen.

Impressive when optimized

Build quality:
Compared to the previous generation of ROG laptops, this is less sturdy. That said, it's also half the weight (10 LBS vs 5 LBS). The cooling doesn't feel as efficient either, but I haven't actually taken any measurements. The keyboard is super fast, but again, doesn't feel as sturdy as the previous gen. When you're paying top tier pricing for a top tier laptop, you don't want to see quality go down. I took off a half star for that.

So I have purchased the Red Line Boost optimization (and pretty much every other boost) from Xotic PC. The color calibration makes the monitor POP. The OS response when optimized is blazing fast. I am playing MS Flight Sim 2020 on Ultra mode and it is absolutely gorgeous. It's kind of scary hot (85 C) and the fans are at 100% but for a laptop to be able to pull that off is impressive. Other games that I've tried are similarly more responsive at higher performance settings.
Without the performance optimzation and overclocking, the laptop is much more sluggish. I'm not sure I'd be thrilled to pay that much money for that level of performance. I took off a half a star for that.

Yeah, it's really cool. ASUS also includes much better software for setting performance levels and monitoring temps and speed. The LED is really pretty cool, as well executed as one could possibly do on a laptop.

If you've got the quid, it's a pretty decent purchase, but it doesn't overwhelm.
