ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Malaysia has officially introduced its new RTX gaming laptops for Malaysia. The lineup includes new variants of ROG Strix SCAR II and ROG Strix Hero II that features the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics. Check out the details below!
ROG Strix SCAR II
Built for the FPS gamers, the ROG Strix SCAR II comes in 15.6” and 17.3” versions available with the same 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time. Both are draped in a shooter-inspired motif that uses splashes of camouflage to create a unique aesthetic fit for the battlefield. Highlighted WASD keys further reinforce the SCAR’s roots, ensuring that you can easily find the home row for FPS gaming.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics give the 15” SCAR II GL504GV and 17” SCAR II GL704GV enough horsepower to drive triple-digit frame rates in popular shooters. You can also upgrade to the GeForce RTX 2070 if you are a serious gamer. Both SCAR II offer more powerful graphics, providing additional performance headroom for competitive gaming, demanding AAA titles, and cutting-edge VR experiences. You can choose between the larger 17” display for a more immersive experience or the compact 15” display that is more portable.
ROG Strix Hero II
The ROG Strix Hero II is optimized for MOBAs and ideal for gamers who want subtler styling. Its contrasting textures and cyber-text patterns are more restrained than the aggressive aesthetic of the SCAR II, making the Hero II more approachable for wider audiences.
Instead of highlighting the WASD cluster, translucent keycaps impart an extra glow to the QWER row. ROG Strix Hero II is available exclusively with GeForce RTX 2060 graphics that are more than up to the task of pushing high frame rates in MOBAs and other popular games. Like the SCAR II, NVIDIA Optimus technology conserves power by only activating the discrete GPU when needed. This allows you to get longer battery life and better gaming performance on demand.
The latest ROG Strix gaming laptops are available with Intel Core i7-8750H processors and up to 16GB of RAM. They come with 1TB of additional mechanical capacity that provides loads of space for larger game libraries too. The auxiliary hard drive can also be swapped for a faster SSHD that caches frequently accessed data to accelerate load times.
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series based gaming notebooks will be available for purchase from 29 January at 10 PM. You can view the full specifications and prices below.
