Asus Strix Scar II laptop review: lights, camo, action

 

Camouflage

Thin bezels ; Great display ; Solid keyboard and touchpad ; Cooling and port selection

Tacky design is a genuine tragedy ; On the thicker side ; Worst webcam placement

Maybe that explains all the camouflage.

Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704GM (i7-8750H, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

 

Compact 17-inch gaming laptop? The GL704GM carries the same CPU and GPU as the last generation GL703GM. So, what makes this new iteration so special? For one, it carries the narrowest bezels for a 17-inch gaming laptop at just over 7 mm on all three...

no throttling when gaming; excellent CPU and GPU performance ; narrow bezels; small dimensions for a 17-inch gaming laptop ; very fast display response times; almost no ghosting ; high quality 1080p 144 Hz IPS display ; loud 3.5 W stereo speakers ; no...

average performance from Western Digital NVMe SSD ; awkward webcam placement ; no per-key RGB lighting ; average battery life ; loud when gaming ; no Thunderbolt 3 ; no G-Sync

Much like how the MSI GS65 and Asus ROG GL504 signaled the start of narrow bezel 15-inch gaming laptops, the GL704 signals the start of more narrow bezel 17-inch gaming laptops to come. It sets a precedence for competing manufacturers to inevitably try...

Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704GM review

 

Asus's moderately mean new portable gaming machine

High-quality chassis ; Packed with awesome features ; Good all-round performance

GeForce 1060 graphics is only just good enough ; Expensive for this level of performance ; Limited battery life

Asus’s moderately mean, new 17.3-inch portable PC gaming machine packs LED lighting and GeForce 1060 graphics.

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 RTX SCAR II GL704GW Review (i7-8750H & RTX 2070)

 

ASUS thought it spotted a niche in the market building laptops specifically for First Person Shooter A stunning 144Hz IPS display matched to an RTX 2070 and Core i7.

Excellent performance from the processor and graphics

No G-Sync for the display

The ASUS ROG STRIX RTX SCAR II is a solid gaming laptop with ample performance and a glorious display, just be ready to pay for the privilege.
