Amazon Link US — ROG Strix SCAR II
Amazon Link India — N/A
So recently ASUS launched its SCAR 2, I absolutely loved the first SCAR and this one is even better!! According to me, this laptop is the best laptop at its price. Here is all the information you need to know about this awesome machine :
Man the build!!! I love its build a lot. This time even the back logo has color changing RGB lighting, I must say, I looks really good. With 2.07 kg in weight, it is fairly good for the power it packs. Its dimensions are 35.5 cm * 23.5 cm and its 16.8 mm thick. It has simple rounded corners which look really clean. It is predominantly plastic but still has a quite premium feel. There is a light strip of light up front which I don’t know why, feel really good. It has 2 zones for customized lighting.
Screen And Speakers
It has a really good screen, it is a 144 hz, 310 nt panel. This panel has a 3 millisecond response time. The bezels are quite thin and I love it. The only problem is the chin, I don’t really like the webcam angle but for me it doesn’t really matter because I rarely use it but if you use the webcam a lot, I prefer you to buy an external webcam. The speakers are on the side and they sound pretty good.
Battery, Keyboard And Trackpad
It can run for 3 and a half hours with 250 nt. It has a 64 watt battery. I means, that kinda natural for the strix series. The keyboard is nice but I may take you a little time to get used to it. It had 4 lighting zones and I love it!!! The trackpad is also very good.
CPU And GPU
They are really good. It comes with an i7 – 8750H which is a really good processor. It has the GTX 1070 which is a really good Graphics card. They both work nicely and provide a really good FPS.
So here are the results of a benchmark test —
Witcher 3 – 61 FPS
DOOM – 141 FPS
Battlefield 1 – 127 FPS
Rainbow Six Seige – 155 FPS
OverWatch – 148 FPS
Fortnite – 142 FPS
I really like this laptop and I recommend this to all those people who really like to game and also want a really good workstation. The main problem is the battery life, so if you are a student, I recommend you to take the charger with you also.
