The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) is the leader when it comes to Gaming Laptops and Gaming Peripherals. Recently, they announced the series of gaming laptops Strix SCAR 17, Strix G15 and Zephyrus Duo 15 for 2020. Also, they launched the new range of gaming peripherals – ROG Strix Go 2.4 headset, ROG Strix Scope TKL keyboard, ROG Strix Impact II mouse, ROG Sheath mouse pad, and ROG Ranger BP1503 backpack.
Liquid Metal for Entire 2020 Intel Laptop Range
The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) informed us about the Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut liquid metal thermal compound for all 2020 ROG gaming laptops featuring 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.
Serious overclockers and enthusiasts have long harnessed the superior cooling benefits of liquid metal for high-end machines, but its application was not feasible for mass production — until now. Following a secret, year-long R&D program, ROG has patented a factory-application process yielding significantly better CPU performance, lower temperatures, and reduced noise for gamers at every price point.
Over a year of testing liquid metal with various processors, ROG engineers observed a 10-20°C reduction in temperatures depending on the CPU. Lower temperatures help processors sustain higher clock speeds for longer and prevent fans from ramping up to louder RPMs. The additional thermal headroom can also be used to reach even faster frequencies and higher performance.
ROG Strix SCAR 17 Gaming Laptop
The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced a special Strix SCAR 17 gaming laptop with an ultrafast 300 Hz / 3 ms display and NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 SUPER™ GPU that represents the pinnacle of professional esports performance.
Upgraded cooling lets ROG Boost take the top-of-the-line GPU’s clock speeds up to 1560 MHz at a full 150 watts in Turbo mode, outpacing standard GeForce RTX 2080 configurations.
With up to the latest 10th Generation Intel Core i9-10980-HK CPU, ROG Strix SCAR 17 takes down tasks with speed. Its potent 8-core processor pushes frequencies as high as 5.3 GHz with a single core and spins up to 16 parallel threads to blaze through heavy work.
Two NVM Express® (NVMe®) SSDs running in RAID 0 minimize load times. Accessing data is fast, making the whole system feel super responsive. Space for a third SSD makes it easy to add terabytes of space to the total capacity.
Inspired by a collaboration with BMW Designworks Group, Strix SCAR 17 has unique features that are both visually pleasing and advantageous to airflow. A trapezoidal cut below the display ensures unrestricted airflow when the laptop is open. The scissor-door hinges holding the lid are shifted forward, opening up additional space at the back for a heavily ventilated 3D Flow Zone, where hundreds of precise
To help maintain the strongest signal, Strix SCAR 17 augments WiFi 6 with ROG RangeBoost technology. WiFi signal strength can vary a lot depending on location. Walls, furniture, and other obstructions can easily block connections.
A wraparound light bar glows under the front and side edges, complementing the backlit ROG logo on the lid. Users can coordinate colors and effects across an entire ecosystem of Aura Sync devices to set up the perfect mood lighting.
The USB 3.2 Type-C™ (USB-C™) port offers blazing-fast transfers at Gen 2 speeds. Its DisplayPort 1.4 compatibility allows users to connect an external G-SYNC® monitor for ultrasmooth gameplay. Gamers can put the action on the big screen with HDMI 2.0b, and watch movies and games on a 4K UHD monitor or TV at up to 60 Hz. The USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port at the back is perfect for a gaming mouse, and there are two more on the left for a gamepad and external storage.
ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 Gaming Laptop
The ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15, which integrates two displays in an ultraslim form factor to bring a new dimension of versatility to premium gaming laptops.
The sleek magnesium-aluminide chassis with 20.9 mm thin and weighs only 2.4 kg is resilient, with clean lines, all-metal construction, and an anodized finish.
The 14.1-inch panel in ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is the largest second display ever put in a production gaming laptop. The IPS panel stretches wide viewing angles across the full width of the body, and its 3840 x 1100 resolution boasts a high pixel density that delivers rich details, crisp text, and flowing lines at a smooth 60 Hz refresh rate.
ScreenPad Plus can be used to turn the primary display into a more immersive medium for gaming, streaming, and content creation. Users can get a more expansive view of their game, movie, or other media while using the secondary screen to keep an eye on emails, social media, and more.
With AAS Plus, tilting the touchscreen at an angle opens a larger 28.5 mm air intake, and allows the fans to draw in cooler air from above the laptop instead of warmer air from beneath it. This massive air intake increases airflow by up to 30% over previous AAS implementations, improving performance and putting less strain on the internal cooling system. Decreased need for heat dissipation means that noise levels can be kept below 46 dB(A) in Turbo mode, and 43 dB(A) in Performance mode.
For Zephyrus Duo 15, users can choose between an ultrafast 300 Hz / 3 ms gaming panel or a high-resolution 4K UHD display. For those who prefer high-resolution experiences, the 4K UHD display offers incredible visuals at the highest fidelity detail. Both of these displays are factory calibrated and PANTONE® Validated to guarantee color accuracy, but this particular panel also covers 100% of the Adobe RGB color space. The wide gamut and accurate colors let gamers who are also creators produce work at a professional level.
The laptop has a new NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER™ makes everything fast and fluid. Thanks to advanced cooling and ROG Boost, the GPU can hit peak clock speeds as high as 1330 MHz in Turbo mode.
With an 8-core 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 CPU hits speed as high as 5.3 GHz on a single core and can engage up to 16 parallel threads with Hyper-Threading technology to power through heavy-duty tasks. Two nimble NVM Express® PCIe® x4 SSDs run in RAID 0 to provide plenty of high-speed storage. USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) with Thunderbolt™ 3 offers versatile connectivity
The laptop can also charge via USB Power Delivery, so users can take care of lighter work with a 65 W USB-C adapter that’s much smaller than the standard unit required for full performance. If the battery runs low and there’s no free socket available, users can buy time by charging from a compatible USB power pack.
Two audio jacks make it easier to connect a standalone microphone and headset for streaming or voice chat, and a premium ESS Sabre DAC elevates the experience for gamers with high-end headphones. The hi-fi DAC reduces noise and distortion, enabling clearer audio with a wider dynamic range. Combined with virtual 7.1-channel surround sound, spatial immersion in games and virtual reality is deeper. Hi-Res Audio certification guarantees fidelity for full-quality audio and other media, providing rich and detailed sound.
