Today, news came out about ASUS India, Republic of Gamers (ROG), and the launch of the long-awaited Special Edition (SE) for the ROG Strix Scar 17 PCs. It has the most advanced Intel Core i9 HX Series of CPUs. It can handle any task you throw at it thanks to TDP levels of up to 65W, a mind-blowing core count of 16 cores and 24 threads, and boost rates of up to 5GHz.
The laptop is meant to give outstanding performance and gameplay on the fly to gaming lovers and eSports players, empowering them to harness their full potential.
Your eSports experience is transformed by the ROG Strix Scar 17 Special Edition. It comes with an aluminium lid that has undergone a stealth redesign. All Strix SCAR 2022 essentials are still present in the special model, in addition to the superior QHD 240Hz 3MS display. The SCAR 2022’s well-known attributes are maintained by the chassis, keyboard, and trackpad.
Along with the use of liquid metal on the CPU and GPU, SCAR SE has unveiled a new Vapor Chamber that takes the place of the heat pipes and can cover up to 48.8% of the motherboard’s surface area in order to optimize heat dissipation. The ROG slash pattern hides a lot of Easter eggs behind invisible ink. Some of them are related to SCAR Runner, their newest Citadel game, which is a free-to-play game that lets you interact with ASUS products.
