 To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 82.5% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.

Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU, the SCAR 18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.





For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 18 offers an incredible Nebula display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 500 nits brightness for stunning gameplay. The 18-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio 2.5K panel provides staggeringly deep blacks for content that jumps right off the screen, whether you’re watching a movie or playing a fast-moving arena shooter. The SCAR 18 can also be equipped with a Full HD 165Hz panel, with each option offering fantastic color, Dolby Vision, Adaptive-Sync support, and an 89% screen-to-body ratio for a stellar gaming and viewing experience.




Designed to Win Built for Victory

The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs and considerations come with gamers first, from the chassis design, lighting integration, software controls, and macro functions. These ROG exclusive design features not only give you a competitive advantage, but they make sure you never blend in with the crowd.












Press the Attack

The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the SCAR 18 has a professional esports grade keyboard designed to secure the win. Built to last, the Strix SCAR's keyboard switches are rated to last over 20 million presses, and n-key rollover guarantees your system will never miss command even if you’re pressing multiple keys at once. The SCAR has a full-sized keyboard, with dedicated media controls and dedicated hotkeys that are tuned for volume and Armoury Crate controls by default, but can be customized for different functions or macros. And with per key RGB and full Aura Sync customization, the SCAR will always have the looks to match your mood.






Showstopping Design

The 2024 Strix SCAR 18 continues to embody the distinct style of ROG. With sharp chassis designs, unique RGB accents, and a distinct gaming vibe, a Strix laptop will always stand out from the crowd. Bold features like the rear glow RGB panel and per-key RGB illumination on the keyboard make the laptop a beacon of gaming power from any angle.





Studio-quality Sound

Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward firing woofers to create an authentic sound stage for your games. Hi-Res audio ensures you hear your music in the same quality it was recorded. Two Way AI Noise Cancelation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction.






All Day Endurance

The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to go the distance. Featuring a 90Wh battery, the laptop can easily browse the web for hours away from the wall before needing a recharge. For flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging is supported up to 100W. When charging using the supplied 330W power adapter, the SCAR 18 can recharge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.





Stay Connected

In modern multiplayer games, a stable internet connection is imperative. The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to join the fight with a dedicated RJ45 port, as well as the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard. On Wi-Fi 6E supported networks, enjoy access to the newest wireless band, free from clutter and interference from your home’s other wireless devices, ensuring you never lag out again.





Battlestation Ready

When you need to plug into the big screen, the dedicated GPU powers an HDMI 2.1 port for the latest TVs and monitors, increasing total bandwidth from 18 to 48Gbps, and supporting up to 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz content. Two USB Type-C ports allow for plenty of connectivity—one for DisplayPort and power delivery, and a second with Thunderbolt 4 support.
