ASUS introduces its latest ROG gaming laptops at the “For Those Who Dare: Boundless” virtual event

During the For Those Who Dare: Boundless virtual event, ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) officially unveiled multiple new gaming products. The new launches include two high-performance ROG Strix and ROG Flow gaming laptops, a series of new bags and apparel from ROG Slash, the Team ROG initiative, and a standalone first-person parkour game for ROG Citadel XV. ROG is dedicated to giving gamers the best technology, products and experiences possible, and the For Those Who Dare: Boundless event is a continuation of that commitment.

ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition

The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition houses the latest hardware and cutting-edge cooling solutions to power class-leading gaming experiences. A custom vapor chamber, paired with ROG’s exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU, allows the SCAR 17 SE to push its hardware further than ever before. With a maximum CPU TDP of 65 W and a maximum GPU TGP of 175 W with Dynamic Boost, the SCAR 17 SE has the horsepower to reach the bleeding edge of high refresh rate gaming without breaking a sweat.

The SCAR 17 SE continues to dominate with a full suite of high-end components, ensuring that gamers never encounter a bottleneck. Offering either FHD 360 Hz or QHD 240 Hz panel options, both with just 3 ms response times, the SCAR 17 SE provides crystal-clear motion clarity no matter the resolution. With up to 64 GB of blazingly-fast DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and PCIe® Gen 4 storage in a RAID 0 array, this gaming juggernaut leaves loading times in the dust. The machine also features a distinct cyberpunk aesthetic, with first-of-its-kind invisible ink applied directly to its metal chassis. In normal lighting, this substance has a matte metallic texture, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue, and offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner.

ROG Flow X16

The new ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch thin and light convertible laptop, powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU, with support for the XG Mobile family of external GPUs, all while weighing just 2.1 kg. The Flow X16 also features the flagship ROG Nebula HDR Display, a dazzling QHD / 165 Hz Mini LED panel with 1100 nits peak brightness and a 100% DCI-P3 gamut. ROG has not sacrificed usability and upgradeability for this thin and light form factor. These premium parts are complemented by the all-new Frost Force Technology and Pulsar Heatsink, featuring three fans and a high density heatsink to keep performance high and temperatures low.

Expanded ROG Slash fashion line

Inspired by cyberpunk and the code that builds our modern virtual world, these products offer versatile bag and apparel options, are built with premium materials, and are designed with gaming culture at their core. ROG Slash is also defined by its versatile utility and durable build quality. With adjustable straps, multiple compartments, and water-repellent TPU materials, the Crossbody Bag, Backpack, Hip Bag, and Protective Laptop Bag are ready to secure the essentials of everyday life, while the new Cobra Buckle Cap and Bucket Hat offer standout style and protection from the elements.
