While it delivers top-notch performance, the ROG Strix Scar 2022 is understandably not for everyone and is a machine for purists who want no compromise when it comes to gaming. The machine is a performance beast and has the specifications to enjoy titles for years to come, no less than what you’d expect from a laptop that costs Rs 2,61,990. If you can ignore some aspects like having to use an external webcam and the weight of the machine, this powerhouse is a solid recommendation.

The ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 is an immensely powerful laptop. Its CPU delivers the same kind of processing ability as a high-end workstation from just a few years ago. The graphics are also immensely capable, albeit aimed at gaming rather than professional work. There’s ample connectivity including the latest Thunderbolt 4 and 2.5Gbits/sec networking, plus some Type A USB for backwards compatibility. The screen is excellent, with its high refresh able to take full advantage of the powerful graphics’ fast framerates, although this will be more for gamers than professionals. The battery life isn’t great, and it is quite large and heavy, but these are expected downsides from a notebook this potent. Overall, the Scar 17 showcases just how much computing ability can now be packed into a portable device.

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 packs potent gaming power that will allow you to play triple-A titles, and enjoy an excellent audio experience. Our review unit was reasonably priced ($2,499) for a gaming rig with a QHD 240Hz display, a 12th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, and 1TB of Storage. You can easily spend upwards of $3,000 for a gaming laptop with these specs. The Scar also gets cooling right, with a setup that actually works and remains relatively quiet, however, the extra thought put into the thermal design is probably why the unit is a little thicker than others. If you go for a thinner, smaller profile gaming rig you most likely won’t enjoy the same cooling efficiency. What the Scar gets right, it gets exceptionally right and unless you really miss a built-in webcam (you shouldn’t, they’re terrible), the Scar is an excellent and fun choice that will meet all your gaming requirements.

It’s practically a given that any powerful gaming laptop will have not-so-great battery life. And unfortunately, that’s the case here. Its 90Wh battery can last about three and a half hours under normal use, which I define as running a dozen or so browser tabs, music streaming, and a chat app like Slack. On the brighter side, you can recharge this year’s Strix Scar 17 via USB-C — up to 100W with a USB-C PD charger. Previous versions of this laptop all but required you to tote around its large and hefty 280W power brick. So long as you don’t plan on gaming on the go, USB-C recharging is a viable option. Asus’s Strix Scar 17 proves that you don’t need to spend a fortune to get access to a fast Intel Alder Lake processor or Nvidia’s 3070 Ti mobile graphics card. And for this model’s $2,499 price, it delivers a lot of other great things, like its tactile keyboard, sharp QHD display, booming speakers, and above-average port selection. Though, you’ll find many of its best qualities in some of Asus’ other high-end gaming laptops that offer better designs.

Asus’s ROG Strix Scar 17 nails what a high-end gaming laptop should be. It has performance in abundance, thanks to its Intel “Alder Lake” Core i9 CPU, DDR5 memory, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Ti graphics. It also surprises with all-day battery life and quiet fans, and it excels just about everywhere else. If you can live without a webcam or are willing to use an external one, the ROG Strix Scar 17 is the high-end gaming laptop to beat.

The release of the new Strix 17 has fired the starting pistol on the race to get gaming laptops to market with Intel’s latest and, it must be said, hugely impressive processors. Until we get our hands on 12th generation machines from Alienware, Acer, Lenovo and Razer, however, the Asus ROG Scar Strix is going to be as good as it gets. It’s supremely powerful, has a decent screen and sound system and is replete with all the subtle – and not so subtle – features that discerning gamers look for.

The 2022 Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 is a capable performance/gaming full-size laptop and one of the better-value options in its class, especially in the mid-tier RTX 3070Ti + QHD screen configuration tested here. Compared to the previous Scar 17, the 2022 update is significantly more powerful in games and workloads, thanks to the updated specs, higher power graphics chips, and the implementation of a MUX. On the other hand, the components still run hot inside, especially on the GPU side now, and the Intel Alder Lake platform is not as efficient on battery use as the AMD hardware in the 2021 model.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
