LIQUID METAL BOOSTS COOLING
ROG's Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and system settings to ensure the best experience for each situation. Performance is boosted with cutting-edge enhancements like liquid metal compound on the CPU and a well-ventilated exterior that keeps noise levels lower than the last generation. Special editions of the SCAR 17 add height to the chassis to facilitate superior performance from its uber powerful RTX 2080 SUPER GPU. ROG Armoury Crate software seamlessly switches between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task. Together, these innovations enable ROG Boost to raise GPU clocks by 100MHz over stock speeds.
RELIABLE WI-FI 6 NETWORKING
Ultrafast Intel® Wi-Fi 6 with Gig+ (802.11ax) lets you game reliably at LAN speeds wherever compatible connections are available. Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) enables a peak interface bandwidth up to 2.4Gbps*, with boosted network speed, efficiency, and reliability in crowded spaces. It also reduces latency, meaning less lag for network-sensitive activities like quick play matches on the go. ROG RangeBoost technology complements your Wi-Fi 6 by maximizing coverage. The unique RangeBoost algorithm evaluates the signal strength of four internal antennas and picks the best pair to use for your location, minimizing dead spots and increasing range by up to 30%.
* Unless otherwise stated, Wi-Fi speeds are based on theoretical performance. Actual performance may vary.
INTRODUCING KEYSTONE II
Keystone II offers a versatile new way to personalize your machine and protect your personal data. These physical, NFC-enabled keys fit neatly into the Strix SCAR 15/17’s chassis, adding a subtle accent along the trim. When docked, Keystones can unlock access to personalized settings that transform your machine, quick-launch apps or games of your choice, reveal a hidden Shadow Drive for covert private storage, and more.
