Gaming Laptop: Asus ROG Strix Scar III


Asus’ ROG (Republic of Gamers) sub-brand is known for its expensive, high-performing gaming kit and outlandish RGB lighting – and the new Strix Scar III gaming laptop ticks all the boxes. Where last year’s Scar II featured an eye-catching RGB light bar on the front of the chassis, the Scar III ups the ante with lighting that extends all the way around the base of the laptop, and it now features ROG’s Keystone profile technology too. Far more significantly, it’s also the first laptop we’ve ever seen with a 144Hz display – representing the dawn of a new chapter in portable gaming. Let’s dive into the specifications and see what makes the ROG Strix Scar III tick.
