Asus brings ROG Strix SCAR 17 gaming notebook in exciting special edition

Asus had officially unveiled the ROG Strix SCAR 17 special edition high-end gaming laptop in May 2022 and hinted at availability for the third quarter. Now, the laptop’s classy design is finally making its way to retailers.

ROG Strix SCAR 17 special edition in detail

The features of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE (G733CW / G733CX) should excite even the most demanding gamers. Thus, the gaming notebook relies on powerful Intel Core i9-HX processors of the latest generation in the form of the Intel Core i9-12950HX with 16 processor cores and clock rates of up to 5.0 GHz.

It is supported by a maximum of an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (G733CX) or an RTX 3070 Ti (G733CW) with 16 GB or 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Thus, you are prepared for even the most demanding current games on the highest settings.

The direct GPU mode, which you can activate via the MUX switch, is also exciting for competitive games. It reduces the latency and leads to a performance increase of five to ten percent on average.

For the RAM, 32 GB of fast DDR5 RAM is used, which works in dual-channel mode – consisting of two 16 GB components. Thanks to up to a 2 TB plus 2 TB PCIe Gen4 SSD configuration and a gross throughput of up to 7,000 MB/s, even large files and games are loaded and saved in no time.

At the same time, Asus hasn’t skimped on cooling either, installing an effective cooling system in the gaming notebooks for the ROG Strix SCAR 17 special edition, which relies on liquid metal on the CPU and GPU, as well as a vapor chamber. This provides excellent cooling performance, while the 0dB mode is absolutely silent when the system load is low.

Fast 17.3-inch display

Both variants of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 special edition are also equipped with a 17.3-inch matte IPS-level display that resolves in WQHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) and has a refresh rate of 240 Hz. The response time of just 3 ms is also more than respectable.

The gaming notebook also impresses visually and relies on a circumferential light bar, numerous individually adjustable light effects via Aura Sync, and a unique design. Invisible ink hides a secret message on the notebook lid.

Four built-in speakers with Dolby Atmos also provide excellent sound. During video calls or in-game chats, AI Noise Cancelling ensures optimal understanding and WiFi 6E ensures fast data rates and more stability, while RangeBoost technology maximizes the range.

A 90 Wh battery is also installed, which is quickly recharged via USB Type-C with the help of the 100 Wh fast charging function. The ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE is also very well positioned in terms of ports:

  • 1x 3.5 mm jack (combo port)
  • 1x HDMI 2.1
  • 2x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
  • 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C with DisplayPort / power delivery / G-SYNC
  • 1x RJ45 LAN
  • 1x Thunderbolt 4 with DisplayPort support

Thanks to the Keystone II NFC key, you can also transfer system and game profiles between supported ROG devices and use a “Shadow Drive” storage that is hidden and encrypted.

Prices and Availability

Both variants of the Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 special edition are available now in Germany. The ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE (G733CW) has an MSRP of 3,199 euros, while the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE (G733CX) comes in at a recommended retail price of 3,999 euros. More details can be found on the manufacturer’s product website.
