ASUS ROG unveils new notebooks for gamers


ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has announced multiple new gaming products for gamers at a virtual event dubbed For Those Who Dare: Boundless.

The new launches include two high-performance ROG Strix and ROG Flow gaming laptops, a series of new bags and apparel from ROG Slash, the Team ROG initiative, and a standalone first-person parkour game for ROG Citadel XV.

ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition

The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition houses the latest hardware and cutting-edge cooling solutions to power class-leading gaming experiences. A custom vapor chamber, paired with ROG’s exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU, allows the SCAR 17 SE to push its hardware further than ever before. With a maximum CPU TDP of 65 W and a maximum GPU TGP of 175 W with Dynamic Boost, ASUS says the SCAR 17 SE has the horsepower to reach the bleeding edge of high refresh rate gaming without breaking a sweat. 

The SCAR 17 SE offers either FHD 360 Hz or QHD 240 Hz panel options, both with just 3 ms response times, the SCAR 17 SE provides crystal-clear motion clarity no matter the resolution. The special edition also supports up to 64 GB of blazingly-fast DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and PCIe® Gen 4 storage in a RAID 0 array. It also features a distinct cyberpunk aesthetic, with first-of-its-kind invisible ink applied directly to its metal chassis. In normal lighting, this substance has a matte metallic texture, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue, and offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner.

ROG Flow X16

The new ASUS ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch thin and light convertible laptop, powered by an AMD Ryzen™ 9 6900HS processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Ti Laptop GPU, with support for the XG Mobile family of external GPUs, all while weighing just 2.1 kg. The Flow X16 also features the flagship ROG Nebula HDR Display, a QHD / 165 Hz Mini LED panel with 1100 nits peak brightness and a 100% DCI-P3 gamut.
ROG has not sacrificed usability and upgradeability for this thin and light form factor. These premium parts are complemented by the all-new Frost Force Technology and Pulsar Heatsink, featuring three fans and a high density heatsink to keep performance high and temperatures low.

Expanded ROG Slash fashion line

Inspired by cyberpunk and the code that builds our modern virtual world, these products offer versatile bag and apparel options, are built with premium materials, and are designed with gaming culture at their core. 

ROG Slash is also defined by its versatile utility and durable build quality. With adjustable straps, multiple compartments, and water-repellent TPU materials, the Crossbody Bag, Backpack, Hip Bag, and Protective Laptop Bag are ready to secure the essentials of everyday life, while the new Cobra Buckle Cap and Bucket Hat offer standout style and protection from the elements.

Team ROG – Esports

ASUS ROG also announced that it is expanding its roster in 2022, pairing high-end ROG products with a diverse cast of influencers, professional gamers, content creators and athletes from around the world. 

It also announced the continuation of its current partnership with esports team Misfits Gaming as a part of the broader Team ROG initiative. It has also entered into a new partnership with ReKT Gaming, an organization that operates esports teams and content creation across a range of today’s most popular games. 

SCAR Runner

Available as an expansion of the ROG Citadel XV game, SCAR Runner is a first-person parkour game following the story of X, who is in a race against time to recover critical information. This title also ties in with the physical chassis of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition, with clues hidden on the laptop itself.

SCAR Runner is launching alongside a giveaway campaign with over $20,000 in prizes available, including the Strix SCAR 17 SE and ROG Slash apparel. The campaign will run from May 17 – June 30, 2022.
