The much anticipated gaming juggernaut, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE, and ultraversatile ROG Flow X16 are now officially in Malaysia! Both these laptops come with the latest processors from Intel and AMD, as well as the beefiest graphics NVIDIA has to offer. Let’s dive in.

ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition — desktop-class performance in a laptop


The ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE is practically a desktop crammed into a laptop form factor. This beast features the ridiculously powerful 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12950HX processor running at up to 65W TDP, along with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU running at 175W TGP. Paired up with 32GB DDR5-4800 system memory and 16GB GDDR6 graphics memory, this machine will rip through anything you throw at it.

Of course, such powerful hardware will require powerful cooling, and that’s why the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE features a vapor chamber to help quickly wick heat away from the components. This ensures optimal performance at all times, even in the fiercest of gunfights. Speaking of gunfights, the 240Hz QHD display of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE guarantees that you won’t miss any of the action. Crystal-clear motion clarity is assured with a 3ms response time.

And as a Special Edition, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE also gets a unique cyberpunk aesthetic, with the first-of-its-kind invisible ink applied to its chassis. The invisible ink holds a hidden hint for SCAR Runner, so make sure to check it out if you are getting the SCAR 17 SE.

ROG Flow X16 — the ROG Flow series just got a bigger brother


For those who desire the flexibility of a 2-in-1 convertible but do not wish to settle for the compact dimensions of the Flow X13, the Republic of Gamers has got your back. The ROG Flow X16 is the big brother of the ROG Flow series, featuring up to a 16″ ROG Nebula HDR display with 4608 mini LEDs spread over 512 dimming zones. This allows for a stunning peak brightness of 1100 nits, and a contrast ratio of 100,000:1. Most importantly, you get to use that sweet display any way you want, with the 360-degree hinge of the ROG Flow X16.

Under the hood, ROG also beefed up the specifications. You get an AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS paired with 16GB of DDR5-4800. Surprisingly enough, there’s a dual SO-DIMM configuration here, so you can upgrade the RAM to 64GB anytime you want. Graphics is handled by up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU running at up to 125W TGP for some serious gaming prowess, despite its svelte sub-20mm profile.

Cooling is handled by a unique tri-fan system ASUS dubbed Frost Force Technology, along with the Pulsar Heatsink that spans the entire rear end of the ROG Flow X16. This is what allows the ROG Flow X16 to be an powerful gaming machine despite its deceptive thin and light design. And let’s not forget the ROG XG Mobile compatibility, letting you plug in a GeForce RTX 3080 or Radeon RX 6850M XT to bump up your gaming experience even further.
