ROG Strix SCAR Edition 

ROG Strix SCAR Edition was built with special attention to FPS gamers looking for a competitive edge. 

Available in 15-inch and 17-inch models and featuring Windows 10 Pro, Strix SCAR Edition is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics. The display on Strix SCAR Edition has a super-fast 5ms response time and 120Hz refresh rate that work together to deliver smooth and accurate visuals and to eliminate motion blur, and an even faster 144Hz, 7ms display option will soon be available. Strix SCAR Edition also comes with a desktop-style keyboard layout, fast-actuation keys, and N-key rollover to provide absolute precision during the game. Your every twitch, target and takedown are deeply infused into Strix SCAR Edition, a war machine meticulously designed to support and enhance your shooting skills for even more kills. Taking both its name and design inspiration from the combat assault rifle packed by special forces and used in warfare, Strix SCAR Edition is crafted in gunmetal gray and finished with the cold, dark feel of bullet-proof Kevlar — an outward projection of your inner calm, focus and precision. Bulk would compromise your enviable agility and performance, so all this lethal firepower is packed into compact body that’s as thin as 2.3cm and as light as 2.3kg! 

ROG Strix Hero Edition 

Engineered for the best MOBA experience, ROG Strix Hero Edition features powerful Intel Core i7 processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics and Windows 10 Pro. A 120Hz wide-view display decimates lag and motion blur, so the whole game world is clearer and smoother, and a 100% sRGB color gamut provides consistent light intensity and improved contrast, color accuracy and fidelity. Strix Hero Edition comes equipped with a desktop-style keyboard with N-key rollover for fast, precise response, and a 20-million-key-press lifecycle for outstanding keyboard durability. The unique styling with sharp lines, Mayan patterns and deep-blue colorways, serve as the battle cry to your MOBA foes: Strix Hero Edition is crafted to project your might. But it's brawn that’s also agile, measuring just 2.4cm thin and weighing a mere 2.3kg — Strix Hero Edition is the sleek, sharp weapon feared by every foe! 

ROG G703 

ROG G703 is the world's first gaming laptop to have an ultra-responsive 17.3-inch Full HD wide-view display with G-SYNC™ technology for a 144Hz refresh rate and 7ms response time.

Together with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics — that can reach a maximum boost clock of up to 1974MHz — and Windows 10, ROG G703 is an unmatched gaming powerhouse.
