85.5% Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704GM (i7-8750H, GTX 1060) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The GL704GM carries the same CPU and GPU as the last generation GL703GM. So, what makes this new iteration so special? For one, it carries the narrowest bezels for a 17-inch gaming laptop at just over 7 mm on all three sides. The design will become a standard that future laptops will want to beat.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
So when you look at the whole package, all in all the Asus ROG Strix GL504GM Scar II is an excellent mid-range gaming laptop and it should serve you well, but you have to accept that you will pay a premium in most regions for the more compact form factor, the 144 Hz screen, the bigger battery and the pretty much flawless overall performance. Just make sure to buy your unit from a store that allows easy returns in case you end up drawing the short stick, as Asus’s quality control hasn’t been that great in recent years.

Asus Strix Scar II GL704GM-DH74

The Asus Strix Scar II GL704GM-DH74 is a completely redesigned gaming laptop compared to its predecessor, which is the GL703 series. The laptop boasts a 144 Hz super-narrow-bezel display with an ultra-fast 3 ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time for ultra-accurate targeting. The high refresh rate ensures a true 144 fps experience with minimal input lag, while the superfast response time reduces ghosting and motion blur to yield clearer visuals. The new design also allows for a more compact body that’s 2.33 cm narrower than its predecessor. By using a super-narrow-bezel display, there’s less distracting frame, so the chassis dimensions can be reduced to the minimum, making the Strix SCAR II narrower than ever without sacrificing precious screen space. A unique rubber frame surrounds the display. It not only protects the display from damage when the user closes the lid but also visually enhances the slimness of the bezel for a more immersive feel. The usual Republic Of Gamers (ROG) logo on the lid, the front light bar, transparent WASD keycaps and semi-transparent key sides allow the Aura to shine brighter than ever before. Together, they add up to show off its own unique style. The Strix SCAR II features two contrasting brushed finishes that meet to create a dynamic diagonal slash across its lid. The anodized Gunmetal Gray finish and deep-black heatsink mimic the dark feel of an assault rifle. The laptop is also lightweight at just 2.4 kg, making it powerful yet lightweight. As for performance, the Strix SCAR II is equipped with the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H six-core CPU. It has Intel Speed Shift and Turbo Boost technologies to push the processor to speeds of up to 3.9 GHz (six-core) respectively. Intel Hyper-Threading enables up to 12 threads to handle every task quickly and efficiently, including simultaneous gaming, recording, and live-streaming. With up to 32 GB of high-performance DDR4 2666 MHz dual-channel RAM, the Strix SCAR II has more than enough bandwidth to run the latest games smoothly, while at the same time consuming less energy. As for storage, it is fitted with a lightning-fast 256 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD. It also features a 1 TB 5400rpm FireCuda solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD) as secondary storage. The SSHD takes note of most frequently used files and caches them onto its on-board flash memory. Over time, user will see a notable difference in loading times as the file access speeds increase. As for graphics adapter, it has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 which also supports Microsoft DirectX 12. For cooling, the HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help the Strix SCAR II get the most out of its GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12 V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability. As a closure, the Asus Strix Scar II GL704GM-DH74 is Asus’s attempt in hitting the high-performance gaming market with a bang. Users who are looking for a stylish high-performance gaming laptop can definitely consider this model. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

ASUS ROG GL704 (SCAR II / HERO II) review – everyone hop the RTX ship
Source: Laptop Media English
Despite the controversial results in the gaming tests ASUS ROG GL704 (SCAR II / HERO II) is certainly an incredible device. We are happy to see how manufacturers find ways to put extremely powerful hardware in ever so smaller form factor. In the past, when one would hear about a GeForce GTX 1070 on a laptop, one would imagine Acer Predator 17, Alienware 17 or even MSI Titan. However, lately things have changed and we see more powerful Razer laptops, as well as MSI’s GS75 and ASUS’s own Zephyrus line-up. In order to compete with them, ASUS had to upgrade their ROG line-up as well. This resulted in the GL704, which is somewhere on the balance point between gaming ultrabooks and monsterbooks.

The ASUS ROG Strix GL704 SCAR II has the most up to date system with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU. Pairing with the modern chassis design, it allows anyone to enjoy the next generation gaming graphics while on the go.

Asus Strix Scar II GL704GV-EV052T

The Asus Strix Scar ll GL704 is a very thin 17-inch laptop that weighs only about 2.9 kg. Now, 17-inch laptops actually provide gamers one of the best gaming experiences, due to the big display and thermals, as users are able to get the maximum at GPU and CPU, majority of the time, running at 45 watts. The laptop comes with an Intel Core i7-8750H, with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics adapter and 256 GB NVMe storage. Users do have the option to open the laptop up and replace the m.2 SSD, upgrade the RAM and replace the hard drive with an SSD. Now, the most attractive feature of the Asus Strix Scar II is its excellent display, as Asus makes the best displays when it comes to gaming laptops. The display is a 144 Hertz, 3 millisecond response IPS panel, which is fantastic, because usually IPS panels have around 5 millisecond response, so the laptop has one of the fastest IPS gaming panel any gamers can get their hands on. When it comes to bezels, the laptop has a very thin bezel, and as mentioned earlier, it is 144 Hertz, 17.3 inch. Now, the device has a RTX 2060, meaning usually users are able to play any game at 60 frames per second in high or ultra-settings. But, the laptop only has a display of 144 Hertz, hence for users to be able to play games at 60 frames per second, users would have to set their settings to medium instead of high or ultra. The laptop has a low profile chaklis style keyboard. It is LED RGB backlit. Another thing that makes the gaming laptop stand out is the WASD keys are different compared to the rest and an RGB lighting strip that goes down across the front of the laptop. Regarding the interfaces, on the left side of the laptop, users will be able to find a power adapter, RJ45 for connectivity, a mini DisplayPort, HDMI, three USB 3.1 ports and 3.5-millimeter connections for audio. On the right side of the device, there is an SD card reader, the USB type-C connector for Thunderbolt and another USB 3.1 port. As for the rear end of the laptop, there are no connectivity, as it is mainly for ventilation. The device weighs about 2.81 kg (6.19 pounds), which is considered an excellent weight for a 17-inch laptop. The Asus Strix Scar II is a gaming laptop that is relatively noisy and loud, but the laptop does not throttle or overheat. It is very powerful when it comes to performance and has one of the best gaming displays in the market. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam The Asus Strix Scar II GL704GV-EV052T is a gaming laptop with high performing hardware. The laptop has many customizable LED lighting everywhere on the laptop. The Aura Sync technology gives the entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. It can match the colors of the ROG logo, keyboard and light bar on Strix SCAR II with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals. The full spectrum of colors and seven different lighting modes can be easily accessed via the Aura control panel. In addition to an 8th generation Intel Core processor with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, it now includes all-new Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-Series GPUs with up to 8 GB of VRAM and support for incredibly photorealistic graphics thanks to real-time ray tracing technology and AI-enhanced image processing. Storage is fast and plentiful with a 256 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD and a 1TB Seagate FireCuda SSHD. There is a VR-ready Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics that put users right in the middle of the action. Users can explore immersive digital battlefields in smooth, low-latency, and stutter-free VR. To give a maximum advantage in combat, Strix SCAR II features the world’s first 144 Hz super-narrow-bezel display with a 3 ms GTG response time, which is a must-have for hardcore gamers and esports players. The new design also results in a less distracting frame, allowing for a more compact body that’s narrower and lighter than its predecessor. The HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help Strix SCAR II get the most out of its GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12 V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability. A revised keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology puts decisive control at the fingertips. It features a desktop-inspired layout, four hotkeys, customizable RGB backlighting across four zones, a highlighted WASD key group with transparent key caps, and ergonomic 0.25-mm-deep keycap curves for more comfortable typing. With one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C (USB-C), one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and up to three USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, Strix SCAR II makes connecting to the latest gaming peripherals a cinch. HDMI 2.0b supports 4K UHD high dynamic range (HDR) output at up to 60 Hz for super smooth gaming or enjoy 4K UHD content from Netflix or Amazon Prime on a large flat screen TV. Mini DisplayPort 1.4 supports 4K UHD output at up to 75 Hz and ensures compatibility with G-SYNC-enabled monitors. As a conclusion, the Asus Strix Scar II GL704GV-EV052T is a slimmer gaming laptop compared to its predecessor, with updated specifications to feature the latest hardware. It is targeted to gamers who are looking to get a high-end performing laptop for gaming on the go. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The ASUS ROG Strix Scar II is a great gaming laptop which delivers fast and powerful performance. Aside from its solid and premium build, it is also very stylish and beautiful thanks to its RGB lighting on the logo, keyboard, and the LED strip down at the bottom part of the chassis.

ASUS ROG Strix GL704GV SCAR II Review: Hard-hitting Gaming Notebook Gets An Upgrade
Source: Unbox English
We’ve already gone through our first impressions of the SCAR II in an earlier hands-on, so today’s article will basically be talking about the performance of the ASUS ROG Strix GL704GV SCAR II as it relates to synthetic benchmarks and gaming. To catch you up if you’re not a fan of back reading, the ASUS ROG Strix GL704GV SCAR II is a refreshed version of the same notebook released by ASUS last year, sporting NVIDIA’s new Turing-equipped RTX 2060 GPU. While only the GPU was changed from last year’s model, the ASUS ROG Strix GL704GV SCAR II feels like a different beast performance-wise, easily beating Max-Q equipped GTX 1070 notebooks in the same class.

And unsurprisingly, the first RTX-powered notebook in our hands this year comes from ASUS. The newly refreshed ROG Strix GL704GV SCAR II looks quite familiar to the notebook we reviewed a few months ago, though inside it beats quite a different beast.

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++).
