ASUS unveils another fantastic addition to its successful ROG laptop series, introducing the ROG Strix GL704 Scar Edition. Powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, the Strix GL704 Scar allows users to experience uninterrupted and immersive gameplay. It’s also built in with the ASUS HyperCool system to help regulate internal temperature and keep it in peak performance. The Strix GL704 Scar also pays homage to first person shooter (FPS) games by donning a Kevlar-textured chassis and camouflage pattern.
The Strix GL704 Scar offers great gaming versatility with its M.2 NVMe SSD and an optional secondary 1TB solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD) which can house your growing game collection. It can also achieve wireless connection speeds reaching 1.73GBps with compatible routers, to make sure you get no lags. To deliver a better gaming experience, the Strix GL704 Scar set a new standard for gaming laptops when it comes to its display. It rocks a 17.3-inch screen with 7.05mm bezels surrounding it which is 50% narrower than other laptops of the same size in the market.
The Strix GL704 Scar is designed with FPS games in mind, as its overall design carries references to the genre. This is why even the keyboard is optimized for this specific function, with the function keys highlighted to make it easier to locate. Overstroke technology also enables the Strix GL704 Scar’s keys to respond faster compared to the keyboards of other gaming laptops.
