It’s only been three weeks since we saw Asus unveil the new 2021 models of their premium gaming laptops, and now some of the versions are starting to accept pre-orders, ahead of the Asus ROG Strix Scar launch on March 2: https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-GeForce-Opti-Mechanical-Keyboard-G533QS
The new 2021 Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 and 17 (G533) offers a combination of old and new, with some of the familiar tech being the red Keystone II, while some of the new tech includes the world’s fastest screen rate and similar top-end qualities.
As an RTX 30 laptop, specs choices range from 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch with 1920 x 1080 or 2560 x 1400 resolution, to refresh rates from 165 Hz to a whopping 360 Hz, GPU’s from RTX 3070 to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, and AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, 32GB DDR4 (3200 MHz) RAM, and up to 2TB SSD RAID0.
Despite the necessary cooling and four fan outlets for it, Asus promises the noise level to be under 45 dB even in the highest Turbo Mode.
Hey, there may even be some room in there for overclocking then, if you care to risk the warranty.
