ASUS's new ROG Strix SCAR II gaming laptop has a lot on offer, more than just the basic specs imply. The model that eTeknix reviewed was the GL704G, with an i7-8750H, RTX 2070, an unspecified amount of DDR4-2666, and an NVMe PCI SSD paired with a 1TB SSHD all hidden under 17.3″ 144Hz IPS display. That larger form factor allows better cooling to be included as well as giving enough real estate for some serious choice in peripherals. On the side you will find a pair of USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, on a Type-C as well as two more Gen 1 ports, miniDP 1.4, HDMI 2.0b and an SD card reader in addition to audio and wired ethernet.
If you can handle the almost 3kg of weight, check out the full review before shopping around as it will likely run you $1700 or more.
"With this in mind, we look at the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II. Yes, admittedly a name that is a bit of a mouthful, but with an 8th-generation Intel Processor and Nvidia 2070 graphics card, it’s pretty clear that we can expect some performance from this."
