The All-New ROG STRIX Only for Top Shooters
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 2.5kg!
Combat-Proven Computing Power
Upgrade your arsenal with the latest 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics — providing you with a GTX 1060 utilising a huge 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM. Whatever your playstyle, Strix SCAR Edition is armed with combat-ready computing power to rule the game. Cutting-edge storage in the form of a 256GB M.2 SATA SSD paired with a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD, plus 16GB of high-performance DDR4 2400MHz memory, expandable up to a massive 32GB, guarantee superior performance.
Strix SCAR Edition is equipped with the latest Intel Core i7-7700HQ (Kaby Lake) quad-core processor, providing you with increased performance over previous generation processors. The processor can reach speeds of up to 3.80GHz, and supports Intel Hyper-Threading, Speed Shift, and Turbo Boost 2.0 technologies to handle every task quickly and efficiently.
The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics architecture offers the highest possible gaming performance, new gaming technologies and unmatched VR experiences. Strix SCAR Edition features a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, packed with 1280 CUDA® cores and the highest boost-clock speed of 1708MHz — exceeding the previous generation by over 1.4x! GeForce GTX 10-Series also supports Microsoft® DirectX® 12, enabling the newest visual effects and rendering techniques for gaming experiences that are more realistic than ever before.
Benefit from improved speed and lower power consumption with support for up to 32GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM – and totally boost your gaming experiences!
Used as primary storage or secondary storage to support an SSD, the 5400-rpm FireCuda solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD) used in Strix SCAR Edition loads games more than 2x faster compared to the 1TB 7200-rpm HDDs used in competing laptops — and it’s even quieter. The SSHD takes note of your most frequently-used files, and caches them onto its on-board flash memory. Over time, you’ll see a notable difference in loading times as the file access speeds increase.
Unique to ROG, the underside door on Strix SCAR Edition is the easiest way to access and upgrade your DRAM, as it’s secured with a single screw!
NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series Graphics
Ultimate Gaming Platform
Unleash your gaming dominance with the revolutionary new GPUs that turn your mobile rig into a sleek, powerful gaming weapon.

This means you can experience unbeatable energy-efficiency, innovative new gaming technologies, and breakthrough VR immersion wherever you game.
GeForce GTX 10-Series GPUs give you up to 3x the performance of previous-generation GPUs. They’re built with ultra-fast FinFET, the latest high-bandwidth memory technologies, and support for DirectX 12 features to deliver the fastest, smoothest gaming notebook experiences.
The Latest Gaming Technology
These innovative GPUs were created to meet the demands of next-generation displays, including VR, ultra-high-resolution, and multiple monitors. NVIDIA GameWorks™ technologies give you extremely smooth, cinematic gameplay, plus revolutionary NVIDIA Ansel™ that lets you capture 360-degree in-game images and view them in VR.

Sharper Focus. Accurate Shots
The difference between defeat and victory is measured in fractions of a second. Strix SCAR Edition upgrades your vision, with an IPS-level display with a 120Hz refresh rate & 5ms response time to deliver smooth, accurate visuals, as well as eliminate lag and motion blur. The 300cd/m² panel ensures 20%-brighter visuals than low-end IPS panels from competitors. Give your aim an upgrade, and sharpen your sights for the crucial moment of the shot!
Action-Packed Virtual Reality
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 VR-ready graphics put you in the midst of the action. Shooting games are hugely popular in the VR world so level up your marksmanship in a smooth, low-latency, and stutter-free setting.
Absolute Precision with Every Keystroke
Strix SCAR Edition puts decisive control at your fingertips, with a brand-new keyboard layout inspired by desktop designs, featuring four hotkeys and four customizable RGB-backlit zones. An ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curve is comfortable to the touch; and ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology enables earlier actuation and a longer over-stroke distance — for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. Specially highlighted WASD keys and N-key rollover further boost your precision, and with the action guaranteed for 20-million key presses your kill count will just keep on rising!
A Keyboard Made for Gaming
The new layout follows the design of the best desktop-gaming keyboards. That means the entire keyboard module is now designed for the way your fingers are used to playing, with gaps between the function keys for easier identification, and isolated arrow keys for the most accurate fingertip control. The Space key has also been extended and reshaped for more comfort and fewer misses — gaining you crucial extra moments with every accurate press!
Fast & Smooth Control
ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology applies to every key you press, ensuring a perfectly-pitched maximum peak force of 62 grams-force (gf). Key presses are registered early, accurately and with extended over-stroke distance — and that means faster and smoother control.
Hotkeys Designed for Gamers
Four isolated hotkeys are placed above the conventional keyboard for easy and fast adjustments during gaming. These hotkeys are carefully spaced to avoid accidental presses, and with unique keycaps for easy identification by touch alone. The secondary functions of the F1-F12 keys have been designed specifically to help keep your concentration on the game, putting useful controls right where you need them.
Side-Firing Speakers for Upgraded Audio Sensing
Strix SCAR Edition delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio so every action sounds real, all powerfully delivered through two expansive side-firing speakers. With this immersive stereo audio, even the quietest sounds can be heard, so you’ll pick up on every hidden movement. Smart-amplifier technology monitors the audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass. ROG’s Sonic Studio even offers in-game noise cancellation and voice-volume stabilization, boosting everything you can hear to enhance your performance. Every little advantage aids your march to victory — and Strix SCAR Edition ensures you hear every precise audio cue!
Armed with ROG Gaming Center
Summon ROG Gaming Center with a single press of a hotkey to see a comprehensive dashboard with loads of useful information, including both CPU and GPU frequencies, voltages and temperatures — and use the control panel to make adjustments in real time. ROG GameFirst, Aura Core, as well as XSplit, can also be accessed through the Gaming Center. Gaming Center is even available via the ROG Android app, so you can keep all the controls close to hand.
ROG GameFirst IV technology prioritizes network packets for increased bandwidth for online gaming and streaming. The new multi-gate teaming function allows you to increase your total bandwidth by combining up to four gateways — maximizing throughput for your game!
ROG GameVisual software provides seven pre-set modes for different game genres, plus loads of exciting multimedia and customization settings. ROG software engineers have fine-tuned each setting to deliver visual excellence that perfectly complements the game genre. First Person Shooter (FPS) mode, for example, enhances visibility in dark environments — so you’ll see details denied to your enemies, for a clearer shot with every pull of the trigger!
With Aura Core, you’re free to customize your keyboard’s RGB lighting to suit your gaming style, with an easy-to-use control panel offering easy command over a spectrum of brilliant colours.
A lifetime subscription to Xsplit Gamecaster Standard allows live streaming and broadcasting directly to internet streaming platforms, or make recordings for easy sharing online.
Keep ROG Gaming Center to hand with the Android app on your smartphone or tablet — free from Google Play™!
Stay Cool Under Fire
Strix SCAR Edition has an intelligent thermal design that employs heat pipes and dual fans to automatically adjust cooling system for optimized CPU and GPU performance. The specially-crafted venting holes above the keyboard and in the bottom of the laptop allow more intake of cool air. The upgraded 12V fans, which spin at higher speeds compared to traditional 5V blades, drive strong airflow to boost cooling efficiency, so you’re free to run the CPU and GPU at full speed without thermal throttling. An additional fan-boost function further increases cooling performance and guarantees total stability during even the most intense battles — so you’ll keep a cool head even under fire!

Gaming on PCs used to be restricted to desktop computers equipped with a dedicated graphics card connected to a display, much in the same way that a games console works with a TV. Recent advances in technology have enabled manufacturers to equip laptops with increasing levels of graphics power without them being too bulky or heavy.
Date Issued: 16th Aug 2016
NVIDIA refreshed its range of graphics cards recently with the introduction of a number of new models for performance desktop PCs. Four new GeForces have been released in quick succession. The Titan X, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060, all based on the new, efficient Pascal architecture, have set new levels of performance in each segment.
