Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G532LWS Laptop Review: GeForce Supercharged

Shorten that name, please. 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 15 G532 series is the 2020 update to last year's ROG Strix Scar 15 G531. Differences are relatively minor and mostly internal with the expected CPU and GPU updates to Comet Lake-H and GeForce RTX Super options, respectively. The G532 is home to Asus' upper mid-range gaming laptops directly below the flagship G703 series but well above the TUF series. A lesser-equipped plastic version of the G532 is also available called the G512 and users who want something thinner and lighter have the Asus Zephyrus series to consider instead.

SKUs range from the Core i7-10875H CPU and GeForce RTX 2060 GPU with 240 Hz display up to the Core i9-10980HK and RTX 2070 Super with 300 Hz display like the one in review for $2800 USD. Competitors include other high-end 15.6-inch gaming machines like the MSI GE66, HP Omen X 2S, Acer Predator series, or the Dell Alienware series.

Case

The underlying chassis design is the same as the Asus ROG G531, GL531, and the G512 including the unique LED bar along the bottom edges of the base. The hinges, keyboard, visual style, and webcam-less display lid are all identical between these systems. The only differences between the G532 and G531 are mostly aesthetic such as the new rubberized keyboard deck and matte outer lid as opposed to the checkerboard and brushed aluminum surfaces on the older model. The changes make for a more premium look and feel albeit at the cost of faster fingerprint buildup.

Chassis size and weight sit comfortably in between the smaller Zephyrus S GX531 and larger ROG G703 series. However, the extended rear makes the G532 noticeably larger than some of its closest competitors including the MSI GE66 and HP Omen X 2S.

Connectivity

Port options and positioning are identical to what you'd find on the G532 or G512 including the lack of Thunderbolt 3. We would at least like to see a 2.5 Gbps RJ-45 port on a laptop this pricey, but the system comes with the standard 1 Gbps RJ-45 only.

Maintenance

The bottom panel requires only a Philips screwdriver for easy servicing, but two delicate ribbon cables connect the bottom base light bar to the motherboard. Be careful to not damage these cables.

Accessories and Warranty

An Asus ROG Keystone is included in the box for saving personalized Armoury Crate settings and hidden "shadow" drives between compatible systems. The problem is that very few ROG laptops even support Keystone which makes the feature not as useful as it could have been. We would like to see this proprietary technology on all ROG laptops to really make Keystone worthwhile.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies. 

The small red Keystone "key" comes in its own rubber and plastic carabiner holder. It's rather large and we would have preferred it to be smaller

Input Devices

Keyboard and Touchpad

If you've typed on the G531 or G512 before, then you'll know what to expect on the G532 as the keyboard and touchpad (10.9 x 6 cm) remain identical. Typing is comfortable and the soft-touch keys feel more luxurious than straight-up plastic. However, Asus has yet to address the unlit function letters as shown by our image below. The dark gray font contrasts poorly with the black key caps as well and so the keys can be difficult to see when in a brightly lit environment.

The virtual NumPad on the G531 makes a return. While neat, it's more of a novelty and users who rely on having a NumPad will be better off with a dedicated USB solution instead. The dedicated mouse keys are otherwise excellent with adequate feedback, relatively deep travel, and almost no audible click when pressed.

Display

All G532 configurations come with either a 240 Hz or 300 Hz 1080p IPS panel. There aren't that many 300 Hz panel options out there and so it's unsurprising to find that our Asus configuration uses the same AU Optronics B156HAN12.0 panel as found on the MSI GS66 or Acer Predator Triton 500. Thus, certain characteristics like color coverage, contrast ratio, and black-white response times are all quite similar between these systems. We can't say for certain what the exact panel for the 240 Hz option is until we can test a SKU firsthand, but we suspect it to be the same one used for the G531GW.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers all of sRGB and about 65 percent of AdobeRGB like many other fast refresh rate panels. This is definitely an upgrade from the Panda panel on the much cheaper Asus G512. Laptops with OLED options like the Razer Blade 15 or Alienware m15 are able to offer even deeper colors, but such panels are limited to just 60 Hz at the moment.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter reveal a very well-calibrated display out of the box. Average grayscale and color DeltaE values sit at just 2 and 1.85, respectively, suggesting that additional end-user calibration will not be necessary. Attempting to calibrate the panel ourselves would result in ever-so-slight improvements nonetheless.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.8 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.8 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17482 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

As great as the display may be for gaming, it's not designed for outdoor use. Ambient light will overwhelm the screen unless if the system is under shade.

Performance

There are no Core i7-10750H options since Asus is positioning the G532 as an upper mid-range to high-end product. Users will have to look towards the lesser G512 series for anything less than the Core i7-10875H or GeForce RTX 2060 GPU. It's a shame that there are no Ryzen 7 or Ryzen 9 options for these Strix or Scar laptops as of this writing.

Nvidia Optimus comes standard which automatically omits G-Sync on the internal monitor. However, G-Sync is compatible on external monitors.

All benchmarks below were performed on Asus' Turbo mode for the highest scores possible. We recommend becoming familiar with the Asus Armoury Crate software as its options directly impact performance and fan noise behavior.

Processor

As the 8th laptop in our database with the Core i9-10980HK, performance is where we expect it to be relative to the average. Turbo Boost sustainability isn't perfect, however, as performance would dip by about 7 percent when running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop. Overall performance is only a few percentage points faster than the cheaper 8-core Core i7-10875H while being about 25 percent faster than the 6-core Core i7-10750H. It's easier for us to recommend the Core i7-10875H SKU over the Core i9 as a result.

See our dedicated page on the Core i9-10980HK for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon shows DPC latency issues related to Wdf01000.sys. We're able to record 105 dropped frames during our minute-long 4K60 YouTube test video as well which should not be happening on a laptop as powerful as this. Oddly enough, switching to the integrated GPU addresses the issue with "only" 10 dropped frames instead, but results are strange nonetheless. Both our Nvidia and Intel graphics drivers were up to date at the time of review.

Storage Devices

Our unit comes with two 1 TB Intel 660p M.2 SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. This particular drive is a mid-range NVMe SSD with sequential read and write speeds of 1800 MB/s each. A fast, singular drive like the Samsung PM981a in the MSI Bravo 15 can still match or outperform our RAID 0 setup as a result.

A noteworthy advantage of the system is that it can support up to three internal M.2 2280 SSDs whereas most other gaming laptops are limited to just two.

GPU Performance

The mobile GeForce RTX 2070 Super is about 10 to 15 percent slower than the mobile GeForce RTX 2080 Super or up to 10 percent faster than the regular mobile RTX 2070. Opting for the lesser RTX 2060 option will result in a performance dip of about 25 percent. Nvidia's mobile GPU lineup has gotten out of hand recently meaning that the performance differences between many high-end RTX 2070/2080 SKUs have become marginal.

More RTX 2070 Super benchmarks and comparisons can be found on our page here. Users aiming for high frame rates to exploit the 1080p 300 Hz panel will find the most value out of this Core i9 and RTX 2070 Super combination.

Emissions

System Noise

The fans are almost always active no matter the setting. Fan noise can be as high as 34 dB(A) simply by idling on desktop or browsing the web. Pulsing behavior becomes even worse if set to higher performance modes and so we recommend Power Saver or Silent mode to keep fan speeds as low as possible. This is a behavior we've encountered on all Strix and Scar laptops thus far.

Fan noise when gaming is very loud even for a gaming laptop. We're able to record a constant 57.5 dB(A) when on Turbo mode or 53.4 dB(A) when on Performance mode. In either case, results are louder than what we've recorded on many other high performance laptops including the Razer Blade 15 or MSI GE66.

Cooling solution consists of five heat pipes and twin ~45 to 50 mm fans
