84.4% Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G532LWS Laptop Review: GeForce Supercharged | Notebookcheck
Take the Asus G531, swap out the old hardware for 10th gen Comet Lake-H and GeForce RTX Super, and you'll have yourself the G532. This is one of the fastest ROG laptops you can get without settling for the over-sized G703 Chimera series.

The ROG Strix Scar G15 is a powerful gaming laptop with the fastest display you'll find on a laptop. It has a gorgeous display with loads of RGB lighting and an excellent keyboard that will give you an edge whether you're in an FPS firefight or drifting corners in a racing game. The combination of a Core i9 CPU and RTX 2070 Super GPU means you can play the latest titles at maximum graphics or do video- and photo-editing when you're streaming for your fans.

85% ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 review (2020 G532LWS model – Core i9, RTX 2070 Super 115W)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The 2020 ROG Strix Scar 15 is mostly a hardware update of the 2019 model, with a few extra tweaks: a slightly cleaner interior and exterior design, as well as improved control over the RGB elements. Performance-wise, this remains a beast and one of the most powerful 15-inch notebooks out there, while it still runs hot and noisy on the Turbo profile, especially when sitting flat on a desk. Add in the rather small battery and the certain lacks in modern features, and this might not be as competitive this year as a performance-focused all-rounder, unless Asus compensates for its quirks with more aggressive pricing.

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 G532LW Review: One of the best gaming laptops of 2020
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
For RM7,999, the ROD Strix SCAR 15 does it all, and does them with aplomb – its impressive upgradability, coupled with the specs you’re getting future proofs you for at least another 3 years. Its gaming prowess is indisputable, while other features like its gorgeous 240Hz monitor, comfortable keyboard, and impressive audio make the SCAR 15 feel like top-range premium device. What also contributes to the classy feel of the laptop are its simple, yet sleek aesthetics which are accented by RGB lighting that, as much as some people detest, add extra flare to the rig.

The Asus Strix Scar 15 boasts enough power under the hood to rival desktop gaming PCs and a 1080p screen with a whopping 300Hz refresh rate, to start. If only that irksome trackpad worked better, this laptop might have gotten a higher score.

ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 (GL532) Review – Full on Performance with no Compromises?
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
Based on the performance tests, we can see that the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 really comes out on top in most of the CPU and productivity tests. The vigourous sustained turbo speeds on this notebook really allows its CPU performance to shine, flexing its true potential as a heavyweight in the gaming notebook scene. Everything will look perfect, if the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 was equipped with a dual-channel memory configuration right out of the box. The gaming performance gap between a single channel and the dual channel memory configuration is just simply too much to ignore. We can see that just by having the system to run in dual channel memory mode, we can see more than 10% of improved performance.

Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 Review: Powerful Portable Gaming
Source: The Verge English
Overall, these nitpicks emphasize Asus’ priority with the Scar. It’s not a laptop that’s meant to double as a travel companion or a work-from-home driver — don’t buy it to be your primary PC.

Asus ROG STRIX SCAR 15 | One of the best gaming laptops, PERIOD [Review]
Source: G Style Magazine English
If you’re looking to game on a budget then this machine is NOT for you. At $2200 this is not a budget machine. This is a high-end machine that was built to deliver a high quality gaming experience for hours of full use on end. You might even consider it a desktop replacement. This could also be a “con” but only if this was the only gaming laptop that Asus and ROG sold. It isn’t. You have choices. So if you’re looking to be on the higher end of a PC gaming laptop landscape then $1800 – $2500 is where you’ll most likely be, I won’t complain about the price. Neither should you. Asus has other less expensive quality gaming laptop options. As far as this gaming machine goes, this is one of the best gaming laptops I’ve ever used. Period.

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).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Refresh model of the RTX 2070 with a slightly higher performance.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile: 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. The refresh version in April 2020 bears the same name, but is slightly higher clocked.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Comet Lake:

i9-10980HK: On Comet Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 3.1 - 5 GHz that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). At the time of announcement, the i9-10980HK is the fastest Comet Lake-H CPU and fastest laptop CPU on the market. Thanks to the free multiplicator, the CPU can also be easily overclocked (but may not have much headroom).

i7-10875H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.3 - 5,1 GHz (all 8 cores up to 4.3 GHz) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).

2.364 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.6 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


79.38%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
