86% ASUS ROG Strix SCAR III G531GW (Core i9-9880H, RTX 2070) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
ASUS is focusing on more than just RGB lighting with the third incarnation of its ROG Strix Scar. The company has also included a nice security feature called Keystone along with a host of powerful hardware. The G531GW offers plenty on paper, but can it meet expectations?
Asus ROG Strix Scar II Review – Fps Strixstar
Source: The Techy English
It was never fun playing FPS games on a laptop, its ergonomics were poor, the feedback from the keypad touches couldn’t match up with a USB keyboard and the weird positioning of the buttons, also the touchpad being a major obstacle for my hand’s range of movement. This was back in 2012, but times have changed now and so have the laptops. Let’s find out what the Strix Scar II in 2019 has to offer?

Source: Kitguru English
Put simply, if you want a high-performance gaming laptop with all the bells-and-whistles in a form factor that can comfortably fit inside a backpack, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar III G531GW-AZ055R is a strong choice. 32GB of DDR4, an eight-core Core i9 CPU, the non-Max-Q RTX 2070, and a 240Hz screen aren’t easy to find in a chassis of this relative slenderness with such strong build quality, but ASUS delivers well.

ASUS ROG Strix G531 review – budget gaming laptop swimming in RGB
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS ROG Strix G531 is a laptop with a lot of potentials. It has the latest Intel processors and a wide variety of graphics card options. Moreover, there is a snappy 120Hz display option and a sturdy, though plastic, design. However, we were left with mixed feelings after our time with the device.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i9:

9880H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.9- 4.8 GHz (4.3 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Offers an unlocked multiplier that allows overclocking of the CPU.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
