As one of ROG’s highest-performing laptops, the 2023 Strix series is now powered by the latest and greatest chips from Intel® and NVIDIA®. The Strix SCAR 18 features an Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor with 24 cores and 32 threads, alongside an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 Laptop GPU capable of up to 175 watts, for a total system power of 240 W.
A MUX Switch with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus intelligently ensures optimal frame rates when plugged in, and better battery life when untethered, with no manual intervention needed. The Strix G16 and Strix G18 on the other hand are powered by up to an Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX CPU and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4070 Laptop GPU with up to 140 W of power using Dynamic Boost and the same MUX Switch with Advanced Optimus.
The redesigned 16- and 18-inch Strix laptops allow for an all-new Intelligent Cooling suite, featuring ROG’s Tri-Fan Technology first introduced on the 2022 Flow X16. In addition, we’ve taken the full width heatsink from the Flow X16 and enlarged it for the 2023 Strix SCAR 18, Strix G16, and Strix G18. This larger heatsink increases surface area for heat dissipation by up to 92.23% compared with 2022 models, and paired with our new full-surround vents, ensures next-level airflow for the powerful components inside. Combined with Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU with 7 heat pipes, ROG’s new solution allows for higher-than-ever TGPs for this year’s next-gen CPUs and GPUs.
2023’s new 18-inch Strix SCAR model is available with up to WQXGA 240 Hz displays while Strix 16 and 18 machines offer up to WUXGA 165 Hz display giving you the upper hand when gaming against your opponents. And it doesn’t stop with just gaming, enjoy richer, brighter, and livelier contents with Dolby Vision, offering creators the ability to film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.
