Product Overview ROG STRIX SCAR II GL704GM: Precision Knows No Bounds
Hot on the heels of its ground-breaking predecessor, ROG Strix SCAR II brings you even more power and style for your FPS eSports gaming. Boasting the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with an ultrafast 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time in a spacious yet compact 17" chassis, Strix SCAR II has no equals! The fast-responding desktop-style keyboard with Overstroke technology ensures precision control of your armoury, while the patented RangeBoost multi-antenna system guarantees ultra-reliable, wide-ranging Wi-Fi coverage. To give you an edge in the heat of battle, this powerful Windows 10 gaming laptop incorporates a HyperCool Pro thermal system: this delivers the extreme cooling needed to squeeze every last drop of performance out of its 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 10-Series graphics. Upgrade your firepower with Strix SCAR II — it’s the ultimate weapon for the fiercest gunfights!

Design: Ultra-Responsive Narrow-Bezel Display
To give you the maximum advantage in combat, Strix SCAR II features the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with a 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time — a must-have for hardcore gamers and eSports players. The extremely high refresh rate ensures a true 144fps experience with minimal input lag, while the superfast response time reduces ghosting and motion blur to yield clearer visuals. The new design also results in less distracting frame, allowing for a more compact body that’s narrower and lighter than its predecessor, so you can take the fight with you, wherever you go!
*SCAR II (17-inch) is 1.52cm narrower than SCAR Edition (GL703VM).

• Ultra-Responsive 144Hz/3ms Display.
• Compact Chassis.
• Super Narrow Bezel.

Continue to Push the Boundaries
By using a super-narrow-bezel display, there’s less distracting frame, so the chassis dimensions can be reduced to the minimum, making Strix SCAR II narrower than ever without sacrificing precious screen space. A unique rubber frame surrounds the display — this not only protects the display from damage when you close the lid, but also visually enhances the slimness of the bezel for a more immersive feel.

Weapon-Like Finish
Inspired by a bullet homing in on its target, Strix SCAR II features two contrasting brushed finishes that meet to create a dynamic diagonal slash across its lid. The anodized Gunmetal Gray finish mimics the dark feel of an assault rifle — a true reflection of a warfighter’s inner calm, focus, and precision.

Kevlar weave and camouflage-inspired markings around and across the keyboard epitomize life on the battlefield. A special eight-step in-mould roller process is used to achieve the unique 3D-weave and colour overlays. This technique also results in a smudge-proof surface, ensuring Strix SCAR II stays free of unsightly fingerprint marks.

Aura Lighting: Light It Up with Aura Lighting
Dim the lights, and watch Aura lighting take center stage. The ROG logo on the lid, the front light bar, transparent WASD keycaps and semi-transparent key sides allow Aura to shine brighter than ever before. Together, they add up to show off your own unique style.

Performance: Spec Ops
Strix SCAR II is armed to the teeth: it’s powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, supports upto 32GB of DDR4 2666MHz memory*, and advanced graphics are delivered by NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 GPU, featuring 1280 CUDA Cores & 6GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM. Storage isn’t an issue, with a 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 SSD and a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD installed.

Cooling Design: Stay Cool Under Fire
The HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help Strix SCAR II get the most out of its GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability.

• Self-Cleaning Anti-Dust Tunnels.
• Dual-Fan Design.
• Upgraded 12v Fans with More Blades.
• Slim 0.1mm Thermal Fins.
• Innovative Trapezoid-Cut Lid.
• FN+F5 HyperFan.

Upgraded 12V High Performance Fans with More Blades
Strix SCAR II has two upgraded high-performance fans with 71 liquid-crystal-polymer (LCP) fan blades — 20% more than its predecessor — for improved cooling. Compared to regular 5V fans, they spin 20% faster, improve airflow by up to 42.5%, and increase air pressure by up to 92%.

Extended Cladding for Even Cooling
The unique heat-pipe design includes an extended cladding plate that soaks up heat from the CPU and GPU, and distributes it evenly to avoid thermal throttling. This keeps chipset power components below 90°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.

Anti-Dust Cooling System
The Anti-Dust Cooling system is a patented centrifugal fan module with two anti-dust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the center from which it is moving. Dust particles and dirt in the fan module are blown along the fan walls, and eventually expelled out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prevents buildup on the heatsink fins and improves dust removal rate. Dust accumulation on the heatsink often results in compromised cooling performance. The Anti-Dust Cooling system delivers the cooling Strix SCAR II requires for heated gaming marathons. Fan noise also decreases since the fans aren’t overworked.

b>Ultrathin Fin Design
The special copper cooling fins used in Strix Scar II are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more of them to be used in the cooling module; this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 10%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.

Trapezoid-Cut Lid
When opened, normal laptop lids block airflow out the back which could, in some instances, cause overheating. The innovative and patented trapezoid-cut on Strix Scar II avoids this problem, and improves thermal efficiency by up to 27% over traditional designs.

The HyperFan app, accessible by pressing FN + F5 or via the Armoury Crate hotkey, can be used to select five different fan settings. There’s a default Windows fan settings mode, and a Manual mode for users to individually adjust the speed of the dedicated GPU and CPU fans. The remaining three modes help balance fan performance and noise level: Turbo mode provides the fastest fan speed to fully exploit the power of Strix SCAR II during intense gaming. Silent mode curbs fan speed and power consumption for less demanding tasks. A balanced mode delivers stable fan performance at a moderate noise level.

• Silent: Reading 35 dB (Max).
• Balanced: Movie 45 dB (Max).
• Turbo: Gaming 50 dB (Max).

Display: Set Your Sights On An Upgrade
The margin between victory and defeat can be measured in fractions of a second. Strix SCAR II features an IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms GTG response time for supersmooth visuals with little or no motion blur. The 300cd/m² panel ensures 20%-brighter visuals compared to low-end IPS panels.

• 144Hz Refresh Rate.
• 3ms Response Time.
• 20% Brighter.

VR/MR: Action-Packed Virtual Reality/Mixed Reality
VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Series graphics put you right in the middle of the action. Explore immersive digital battlefields in smooth, low-latency, and stutter-free VR. Strix SCAR II is also certified by Microsoft for Windows Mixed Reality applications.

Connectivity: RangeBoost for Zero-Dead-Spot Wi-Fi Connection
ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for 30% more range, higher Wi-Fi throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans and selects the best pair of antennas able to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) Gigabit Wi-Fi standard delivers speeds of up to 1.7Gbps — twice that of 802.11ac 2x2 and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!

• Multi-Antenna RangeBoost Technology.
• Intel Gigabit Wi-Fi.
• Wi-Fi Coverage.

Keyboard: Absolute Precision with HyperStrike Pro Technology
A revised keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology puts decisive control at your fingertips. It features a desktop-inspired layout, four hotkeys, customizable RGB backlighting across four zones, a highlighted WASD key group with transparent key caps, and ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curves for more comfortable typing. Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation and a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. N-key rollover technology ensures multiple simultaneous keystrokes are instantly logged, while anti-ghosting ensures no false commands are registered — so you’re in full control when precision is needed. With a lifespan of 20 million key presses, SCAR II has one of the most durable keyboards to be found in a laptop — double that of the current industry standard.

• Fast-Actuating Keys.
• N-Key Rollover.
• Curved Keycaps.
• Transparent WASD Highlighted Keys.
• 4-Zone RGB Backlighting.

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 bar has also been extended and reshaped for more comfort and fewer misses — giving you the most accurate fingertip control.

Fast and Smooth Keystrokes
ROG Overstroke technology ensures each key is perfectly calibrated to require just 62 gram-force (gf) for actuation. Keystrokes are registered early, accurately and with extended over-stroke distance — and that means faster and smoother control.

Gaming Hotkeys
Four gaming hotkeys sit isolated above the keyboard for quick access to the volume and mic mute controls, and Armoury Crate. They’re carefully spaced to avoid accidental presses, and feature unique keycaps for easy identification by touch. Beneath them sits a full array of secondary function keys (F1 to F12). They’re strategically placed and grouped in fours, so you’ll intuitively know where each key is so you can stay focused on the action.

Aura Sync: Aura Sync for Ultimate Personalization
Aura Sync technology gives your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. Match the colours of the ROG logo, keyboard and light bar on Strix SCAR II with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals. The full spectrum of colours and seven different lighting modes can be easily accessed via the Aura control panel.
