Beat the Best. Be the Best.

Compete at the highest level of Windows 10 gaming with the ROG Strix SCAR 17. Take on any challenge with the powerful AMD Ryzen™ 9 5900HX CPU and up to GeForce RTX™ 3080 GPU. Go all-in on esports speed with an ultrafast panel up to 360Hz/3ms, or immerse in lush detail with a high-resolution WQHD 165Hz option. Input every strike with precision on a responsive optical-mechanical keyboard. With a competitive edge this sharp, you can dominate any arena.







Win with athletic style at your next esports tournament. Clean cuts across the lid mirror the cutting-edge power inside. Customizable Armor Caps add a pop of color to your chassis. Artful Aura Sync accents illuminate your creativity. Light shines brightly from the metallic ROG logo and optical mechanical keyboard with per-key personalization. More LEDs emit an even glow around the base of the chassis and across the strategic slice beneath the screen.





Accelerate work and play on a machine tailored to deliver triple-digit frame rates. Leading-edge graphics up to a GeForce RTX™ 3080 GPU enable ultrafast and fluid gameplay. An overclockable AMD CPU up to a Ryzen™ 9 5900HX runs on up to 54W of sustained power when the GPU is active and 80W on its own, and is paired with up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM to slice through heavy workloads. Two M.2 NVMe SSDs running in RAID 0 accelerate load times and nearly double the throughput of a single drive. Up to 2TB of storage means you can take a huge games collection wherever you go.

*RAID will be supported in a future AMD driver update. Please check with your regional ROG representative for more details.




Play at pro speed on the latest gaming panels. The Strix SCAR 17 has up to the world’s fastest laptop display with a 360Hz/3ms panel that lets you experience the game with tournament-level fluidity. Target tracking is smoother with minimal blur thanks to a 3ms grey-to-grey response time. For a satisfying balance between high speed and resolution, a WQHD 165Hz/3ms display option brings immersive 2K details into high-refresh territory. It covers 100% of the wider DCI-P3 color space and lets you see more shades in compatible films and other media.




Game in stealth with quieter, more effective cooling. Liquid metal compound on the CPU improves heat transfer for easier dissipation. Upgraded fans boast 84 blades apiece, each reshaped to push more air with less noise and turbulence. Air flows through four heatsinks and fan outlets to rapidly expel heat. You can customize system settings on a per-app basis, so cooling and acoustics are optimized automatically for the task. All these improvements allow ROG Boost to overclock the GPU in Turbo mode, and they open up extra thermal headroom to pursue even higher GPU clocks and also overclock the CPU.





Our optical mechanical keyboard switches actuate nearly instantaneously and much faster than standard alternatives, enabling more responsive input, superior accuracy, and extreme durability. A longer travel distance adds comfort, while curved caps keep your fingers centered. Per-key Aura Sync illumination lets you highlight key commands for different games, and offers a fun way to light up your world.




Virtual 5.1.2-channel surround sound powered by Dolby Atmos technology puts you in the center of the action. Twin tweeters fire sound directly at you, while dual Smart Amp woofers bounce bass off the table. Two-Way AI Noise Cancelation removes excess noise from incoming and outgoing audio, making your multiplayer team chat, streaming, and other communications crystal clear.




Unplug and do more on the move with a high-capacity 90Wh battery. Extend your battery life away from wall sockets with Type-C charging from compatible power packs. For everyday activities like web browsing and streaming video, you can work off a smaller USB-C adapter up to 100W and travel even lighter with a single charger for your laptop and phone.




Dim the lights and let Aura Sync take center stage. RGB LEDs accent the entire laptop, including per-key control that lets you highlight crucial commands for quick recognition. Coordinate your lighting across an entire ecosystem of Aura Sync devices to create your ideal gaming environment. Set the mood for competitive play. Link effects to in-game events. Show your true colors and personalize your gaming experience.




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 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.




Versatile I/O ports keep you connected anywhere. Hook up next-gen devices to amp up your setup at Gen 2 speeds via the USB 3.2 Type-C™ with DisplayPort™ 1.4 and USB Power Delivery. Three Type-A USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports are ready for your favorite gaming gear, while HDMI 2.0b lets you connect a 4K monitor or TV at up to 60Hz. The key ports are strategically positioned at the back to keep cable clutter out of your space.




ROG Armoury Crate unifies system and lighting controls to put essential settings at your fingertips in a single utility. You can easily define and customize Scenario Profiles that automatically make adjustments when you launch your favorite titles. Pairing these customizations with the ROG Keystone II lets you quickly load your fine-tuned settings.

I have a desktop i render 3DCG on alot and needed a laptop that is capable of rendering images on the move so decided to get the ROG Stryz Scar 17. i was not dissapointed.. Render times are very fast, although i had to upgrade the memory to 64Gb to get the most from it. this is a beast of a machine and something i will look forward to using for the next few years.

Absolute Beast on a computer!

This thing handles all of my work from lightroom to photoshop to Adobe premier. Which is the reason I got it. I got tired of rendering speeds and frequent crashes of my old laptop. This was definitely worth the upgrade!

If you're on the market for a laptop and reading/watching reviews, you've probably seen countless reviews of this year's batch of RTX30 powered STRIX SCAR units, and I don't think I'll be able to add anything new -- but I am happy to add my voice to the chorus of praise. The laptop is a beast and throws down benchmarking numbers that could easily fight a top end desktop from only a generation ago -- the R9-5900HX in here can compete with an i9-9900k desktop processor, which just seems like madness to me given traditional laptop performance.

The RTX3080 is a well designed graphics card, only hitting 77-78 degrees under benchmarking loads. I haven't run a torture test on it, but but I haven't seen it get much hotter than that under gaming loads generally. The only drawback here is the 115W TGP (130W when boosted) holding it back from greater performance, but still -- solid work gets done.

The laptop gets fairly loud, as these things go, but is much quieter under full loads than my previous gaming laptop (an MSI Titan model) and if you give it just a bit of a lift so the vents all have breathing room it is impressively well cooled for a (relatively) thin top end gaming laptop.

Overall, unless I run into some traditional Asus issues (power jack issues have plagued my laptops in the past) down the line, I don't see myself getting tired of this amazing laptop for a few years at least.
