ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) isn’t sitting on its laurels as usual on this year’s CES, as the company has 16-inch and 18-inch Nebula displays to the Strix G and Strix SCAR gaming laptop line up, while phasing out the conventional 15-inch display model and retaining 17-inch display for both lineups.
These new laptops are the Strix G16, G17, and G18, and the Strix SCAR 16, 17 and 18.
Starting with the 2023 Strix SCAR G16 and G18, these gaming laptops are powered by up to 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU with 16GB VRAM and up to 175W of TGP with Dynamic Boost.
In terms of panel options, the Strix SCAR 18 can be equipped with up to a 18-inch QHD IPS panel with G-SYNC that refreshes at 240Hz, while the Strix SCAR 16 can be equipped with up to a 16-inch QHD Mini LED panel with G-SYNC that refreshes at 240Hz, both display panels support Dolby Vision HDR and are Pantone Validated.
As for the Strix G16 and G18, they are equipped with up to an Intel Core i9-13980HX processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU wth 16GB VRAM and up to 175W TGP with Dynamic Boost, their display panels are being offered with up to a QHD IPS-Level display of their respective sizes that refreshes at 240Hz and comes with G-SYNC support, Dolby Vision and Pantone Validated colors.
If you are looking at AMD processor options, the 2023 Strix SCAR 17 and Strix G17 are powered by up to an AMD Ryzen 9 Zen 4 processor, GPU options are offered with up to GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU for the Strix SCAR 17 and GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU for the Strix G17, these laptops are equipped with up to a QHD IPS-level panel that refreshes at 240Hz with G-SYNC and Dolby Vision HDR support.
All 2023 ROG Strix gaming laptops will come with DDR5 RAM and PCIe 4.0 SSD as standard, while the redesigned 16-inch and 18-inch Strix laptops feature an all-new Intelligent Cooling suite, which features ROG’s Tri-Fan technology and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU with 7 heat pipes that enables them to perform at optimal conditions during gaming sessions.
Unfortunately, all 2023 ROG Strix gaming laptops do not come with a built-in webcam, which is a rather odd decision as ASUS has included them on the ROG Zephyrus and TuF Gaming series laptops.
Availability and pricing of these laptops have yet to be announced by ASUS Malaysia, but we are definitely looking at mid Q1 or early Q2 for these laptops to reach our shores.
