The ROG Strix Hero II isn’t the best gaming notebook that money can buy. However, there aren’t many that can outperform it on a strictly price-for-performance basis.

Asus ROG Strix II GL504GM/GS series – compact builds, 144 Hz screen and modern hardware
Source: Ultrabook Review English
One final aspect to add is that the new Strix lines have a higher price than the older models, with the Hero II GL504GM model starting at $1699, while the SCAR is supposed to start at $1999, but I’d reckon that’s the for GTX 1070 models. We’ll know more about these in the near future and we’ll update the article with further details. In the meantime, check out the quick review below.

A midrange gaming laptop designed with MOBAs in mind, the Asus ROG Strix Hero II entices with its subdued appearance, beefy specs, and high-refresh-rate panel, but the pricing and battery life are sore points.

ASUS ROG GL504 (SCAR II / Hero II) review – a huge leap forward
Source: Laptop Media English
Considering that this is a gaming laptop, we will begin with its performance. ASUS ROG GL504 impresses with extremely high computing performance, which comes at a price – 95°C when loaded to the max which is not a very good sign in the long term. As for the GPU temp of 88 degrees in extended gaming – it is not impressive either, but it seems that ASUS has prioritized performance over temperatures.

Asus ROG Hero II gets your MOBA game on
Source: CNet English
Pricing was not yet revealed for the Strix Hero II, so check back soon. I'm guessing it won't be cheap. If you're perhaps more of an Overwatch or Counter-Strike player, you may want to instead check out the ROG Strix Scar II instead.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
2.4 kg:

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


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).


77.88%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
