Reviews for the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G532LWS
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.

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.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
