ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the all-new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition 2022 laptop. This upgraded version of Strix SCAR incorporates the latest hardware and advanced cooling solutions to deliver first-class gaming experiences. A custom vapor chamber, combined with Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to the CPU and GPU, allows the Strix Scar 17 SE to push the limits of its components. It also has aesthetics unique to cyberpunk, with never before seen invisible ink applied directly to its metallic chassis.
At CES 2022, ROG presented the ROG Strix SCAR 2022, which delivers cutting-edge gaming performance with the latest components from Intel and NVIDIA. At Computex 2022, ROG introduces the ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE, a special edition packed with even more power under the hood. ROG Strix Scar 17 SE is designed for gamers who demand a machine that is uncompromising and ready for tournaments.
The improvements come straight from the beating heart of the device, powered by the all-new Intel CoreTM i9-12950HX processor, an incredibly powerful 65W laptop processor. With frequencies up to 5.2GHz on performance cores, single-thread power never wanes, enabling high frame rates in the latest esports games. When set to manual mode in the Armory Crate, this 65W processor can reach an impressive maximum turbo power (PL2) of 175W for a limited time, allowing the PC to use a second hat, as a powerful machine. Content creation when the dedicated GPU is disabled. ROG Strix Scar 17 SE managed an impressive score of 22257 on the Cinebench R23 multi-threaded test in Turbo mode, a score that rivals desktop performance. The NVIDIA GeForce RTXTM 3080 Ti laptop GPU also delivers a maximum TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost, designed to deliver the most frames at QHD 240Hz or Full HD 360Hz display options. Both displays feature a 3ms response time, support Dolby Vision, and are compatible with Adaptive Sync, allowing gamers to experience stunning in-game visuals or watch their favorite content.
Other components of the machine also show the power. ROG Strix Scar 17 SE offers up to 64GB of 4800MHz DDR5 RAM, PCIe® Gen 4 storage in RAID 0 that makes load times faster than ever, and a dedicated Switch MUX for maximum gaming performance. WiFi 6E and a 2.5Gb/s Ethernet port allow gamers to confidently start an online game wherever they are. ROG Strix Scar 17 SE features next-generation connectivity, including two USB Type-C® ports, one of which supports ThunderboltTM 4, and a full HDMI® 2.1 port providing 4K 120Hz video output.

Adding more powerful components is only half the equation, as these advanced parts require unstoppable cooling to maximize their performance. ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE features all of ROG’s intelligent cooling innovations to help the device reach its full potential. ROG has used Grizzly thermal liquid metal in many laptops over the past three years, which lowers CPU temperatures by up to 10°C compared to traditional thermal pastes. This year, the ROG engineering team once again teamed up with Thermal Grizzly to develop a better liquid metal formula called Conductonaut Extreme, which ROG Strix Scar 17 SE uses in both its CPU and GPU. Delivering temperatures around 5°C lower than standard liquid metal 1, this was the first step in unlocking the true performance potential of a PC.
The high-end machine also features a dedicated vapor chamber that covers 48.8% of the motherboard, allowing for excellent heat transfer from the CPU, GPU, and critical power components. Combined with four heatsinks featuring ultra-thin copper fins measuring just 0.1mm and updated Arc Flow fans, ROG Strix Scar 17 SE can easily dissipate heat for optimum performance even during sessions.
Iconic Scar Styling
ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE’s unique features aren’t limited to the internal components. Its chassis features the same RGB lighting and customizable shield covers as the standard Strix SCAR, but it has an extra secret: specially developed invisible ink. Traditional invisible ink, which is often used on paper, will not stand the test of time when applied to the metal cover of ROG Strix Scar 17 SE. That’s why ROG’s research and development team created a material that perfectly matches the metal case of the computer. In normal light, this material takes on a matte metallic feel, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue. It took six months and seven formulas to perfect, but this new invisible ink has passed a series of wear and durability tests, giving gamers a unique blend of functionality and style that’s sure to wow.
This cipher also contains clues to winning SCAR Runner, a stand-alone first-person parkour game set in the ROG SAGA universe. Coming on May 17 as an expansion to ROG CITADEL XV, SCAR Runner follows the player’s story as he races against time to recover important information: In Goemon City, a city thriving in a criminal underworld, players must traverse this cityscape to discover things that need character. PKD strongly to share with ROG. Players will need to use quick reflexes to cross the rooftops of houses and industrial areas in time. To get to the PKD before it disappears, players will need to solve a series of puzzles to find the key to unlock the codes.
This unique blend of virtual and physical reality exemplifies ROG’s goal of bridging the gap between games and real life.
ROG is also launching an awards campaign to celebrate the release of SCAR Runner. Players can participate in this competition that runs from May 17 to June 30, 2022 by registering for Gleam and playing SCAR Runner, which will allow them to win various prizes on a full range of peripherals and accessories (ROG Gaming Bundle + Mouse + Mouse Pad + Headset ( ROG Strix XG27AQM, ROG Gladius III Wireless, ROG Scabbard II, ROG Fusion II 500), ROG Slash Gear (ROG Slash Shoulder Bag, ROG Slash Bum Bag, ROG Slash Laptop Protective Bag, ROG Slash Cobra Cap, RPG Slash Bucket Hat) and up to ROG Phone 5s and ROG Strix Scar 17 SE.
