Asus ROG Strix GL504 Scar II review: Great screen, but an ugly paint job

 

With a slim-bezel, 144Hz display and Nvidia 1070 GPU, this is a feature-packed 15-inch laptop, even if it's not a looker.

Excellent performance from a strong CPU-GPU combo. The better-than-most 144Hz screen has a slim bezel, giving it a modern feel.

The boxy camo-covered body doesn't look particularly interesting. The backlit keyboard lacks individual key lighting. Battery life isn't great, even for a gaming laptop.

The Asus Strix Scar II has great performance and a high refresh rate screen with a thin bezel. But it still looks like it was designed in a dorm room.

Asus ROG Strix GL504 Hero II Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Looking for a bargain 144Hz gaming laptop to play all your favourite MOBA and FPS games? The Asus ROG Strix GL504 Hero II may just be the ticket

One of the cheapest 144Hz gaming laptops around ; Multitude of RGB lighting options ; Keyboard and trackpad make for easy typing and browsing

Outperformed by similarly priced laptops ; Struggles to cope with modern AAA games in Full HD

One of the cheapest gaming laptops you'll find with a 144Hz display, but rival options offer superior performances for less cash

Hands on: Asus ROG Strix Scar II review

 

Mid-range gaming at 144Hz

Nice looks ; Plenty of RGB lighting ; 144Hz screen refresh rate

Not a big upgrade over the previous model

The ROG Strix Scar II may not feature major changes over its predecessor, but the ones Asus has made are significant, and if the new laptop delivers a similar level of performance it could be a great buy.

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL504GV Review

 

The ROG team are back with a revamp of their popular gaming laptop, the Strix SCAR II. This time, we have the powerful NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU within. Is this one of the better mid-range laptops available?

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL504GV Review

 

Asus has upgraded its Scar 2 gaming laptop with Nvidia's RTX GPUs, but everything else, including the 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor, the 16GB of RAM and storage configuration remain the same

Improved performance over the GTX 1060 variant ; WASD keys always reaming cool to the touch ; 144Hz refresh rate

Exhaust vent on the right side pushes hot air right onto your hand when using external mouse ; Awkward webcam placement

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 is the same as its non-RTX counterpart in every way, save for the GPU. Even with this small change, it offers noticeable improvements in GPU-centric tasks like gaming, photo editing and video...
