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.
