Last year ASUS gave a number of its ROG laptops, or Republic of Gamers, a make-over. Thinner, lighter, better displays, stylish new looks, and more. With the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II part of this shake-up the 2019 model, although identical, swaps out the GTX 1060 or the GTX 1070 for the new mobile NVIDIA RTX range. And all without raising the price.
Last year we reviewed the ASUS ROG Strix HERO II, where we described it as “a truly impressive laptop with a brilliant 144Hz display, 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, fast memory, and sleek new look”. A sentiment that can be wholeheartedly transferred to the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II because it’s essentially the same laptop – but now powered by an NVIDIA RTX 2060. A change that has surprisingly kept the pricing in line with the GeForce GTX 1060 model we tested the first go-around. And based on the performance captured, makes this one of the best gaming laptops available in its price-range.
