Asus New ROG Strix Scar 17 SE and Flow X16 2-in-1 Laptops Announced

Asus has introduced two new premium laptops, after the relaunch of its ROG Strix and TUF gaming laptops with the newest Intel and AMD components earlier this year. The new ROG Flow X16 and Strix Scar 17 SE (Special Edition) have the newest AMD and Intel processors, as well as RTX GPUs and other features. So, let’s have a look at the specifics.

Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 SE: Specifications and Features

At CES earlier this year, Asus unveiled the ROG Strix Scar 17 2022 Edition. In comparison to the previous model, the Strix Scar 17 SE or Special Edition has even more powerful internals and upgraded features.

Starting with the design, Asus has always been innovative with the exteriors of their premium laptops, and the Strix Scar 17 SE is no exception. On the top lid, there is a text-based design created by Asus using a spot of special invisible ink. The pattern appears muted in normal lighting, but it shines in a green-blue colour theme when exposed to a blue LED or UV light. The special edition Strix Scar 17 will also come with a little UV torch from Asus. Users can also find a secret message for a mini-game called SCAR Runner by looking at the design closely.
It has a 17.3-inch Full HD 360Hz display or a QHD 240Hz panel when it comes to the display. The Strix Scar 17 is powered by Intel’s latest 12th-Gen Core i9-12950HX processor, which was announced earlier this month for multimedia makers. It has a TDP of 55W and 16 cores and 24 threads, allowing it to give a tremendous performance with up to 175W of power.
Asus has also included a more powerful RTX 3080 Ti GPU, which can now use up to 175W of power when utilising Dynamic Boost, as well as a MUX switch to switch to the discrete GPU and disable the CPU’s integrated graphics processor. Up to 64GB of DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and 4TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage are supported.
Asus had to come up with a new cooling solution for the Strix Scar 17 SE because of all the strong and power-hungry components within. As a result, it collaborated with Thermal Grizzly to develop a unique thermal compound called “Conductonaut Extreme.” This substance is administered to the device’s CPU and GPU to keep them cool during intense tasks. When compared to the regular Thermal Grizzly paste, Asus claims that the new thermal paste can save up to 15 degrees.
Furthermore, the 330W power adapter of the gadget has been revamped by the business to be 34% smaller and 27% lighter than the adapter of the Strix Scar 17 2022 Edition. The laptop’s battery lasts 90 minutes. A Thunderbolt 4 port, an HDMI 2.1 port, a 2.5Gb Ethernet port, two USB-A ports, and a 3.5 mm combo audio jack are among the ports. It also has four Dolby Atmos speakers, a backlit keyboard, and other features.
The ROG Strix Scar 17 will run Windows 11 Pro and have Asus software such as the feature-rich Armory Crate software and Asus support. The base model will cost £4,000 (Rs 3,84,250) and will be available in the third quarter of 2022.

Asus ROG Flow X16: Specifications and Features

The ROG Flox X16 is the successor to the ROG Flow X13 from last year, and it has a larger 16-inch screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It’s a 2-in-1 gadget with a 360-degree hinge and a variety of physical modes, including tent mode, tablet mode, and regular laptop form.

Starting with the display, Asus has fitted the new Flow X16 with its ROG Nebula HDR display, which is the company’s name for a Mini-LED panel. It’s a QHD+ panel with a refresh rate of 165Hz and a brightness of 1,100 bits. The panel also offers 512 local dimming zones, a DCI-P3 colour gamut of 100 percent, and is Pantone-validated. Touch and stylus input is also supported. There’s also a 16-inch QHD 165Hz variant with the Mini-LED component and 500-bit brightness support.

The Flow X16 is powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS CPU and up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU. Users can also use Asus’ ROG XG mobile eGPU to boost the device’s graphics performance. There’s also a MUX switch that disables the integrated GPU and shifts all graphics rendering work to the separate GPU.

To keep the Flow X16 cool during intense operations and long-session gaming, Asus has included a new “Frost Force” cooling system with a Thermal Grizzly-made liquid metal thermal compound. Three cooling fans, a big heatsink that runs the length of the laptop, and many heat pipes all work together to keep the heat away from the internal components.

To keep the Flow X16 cool throughout intense activities and lengthy sessions of gaming, Asus has included a new “Frost Force” cooling system with a Thermal Grizzly-made liquid metal thermal compound. Three cooling fans, a big heatsink that runs the length of the laptop, and various heat pipes that direct heat away from the internal components are all included.

The laptop also includes up to 64GB DDR5 4800 MHz RAM, up to 2TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage, four Dolby Atmos speakers, a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and a 90Whr battery. USB Type-C, two USB Type-A, HDMI compatibility, a 3.5mm audio connector, and a microSD card reader are among the I/O ports. It is powered by Windows 11 Pro.

The price and availability of the new ROG Flow X16 have yet to be announced by Asus. We anticipate receiving the equipment by the end of the year.
