Reviews for the Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 G634JZ

Convinced by my big claim up top? You should be. The Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 is not just a great gaming laptop, it offers impressive value across the crop of new RTX 40-series systems. The combo breaker of impressive graphical and compute performance makes this a serious speed demon, no matter what you throw at it. And when looking at those comparisons to the far more expensive RTX 4090 laptops like the Strix Scar 18, you’re getting more for your money (even if that price is a little steep). Pair that with a mouthwatering mini LED display, stellar keyboard, and a ton of I/O, and this is a super solid all-rounder. Regardless of my small issues, if you want to jump into the RTX 40 series family, stop and think before you spend too much, and consider the Strix Scar 16.

There will obviously be more RTX 4000 series laptops paired with the 13th-gen Intel processors. All of them will undoubtedly be quite good in the performance department and will, more than likely, cost a pretty penny. However, ASUS has a history of making remarkably high-octane laptops that do nothing to disturb a fluid gaming experience. The ROG Strix Scar 16 has all the ingredients for the highest quality in GPU and processor-intensive tasks. It also has a remarkable display to back it up and a string of software and hardware tricks to maintain its gamer aesthetic. Apart from a missed SD card slot and rather average speakers, the laptop doesn’t appear to miss a beat at all. I guess what I’m saying is that 2023 will reveal many more capable machines but I doubt any will quite match up to the overall package that is the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 16. Ultimately though, for those seeking a top-of-the-line gaming laptop this year, the ROG Strix Scar 16 is certainly a strong contender that shouldn’t be overlooked.

The transition to the new format was quite successful, so ROG Strix SCAR 16 did not disappoint in any way. In addition, now it can pleasantly surprise with a very bright display with Mini LED backlight and support for spectacular HDR. Increased performance compared to the previous generation is also there, although it will not be strongly felt in all games. Well, other strengths of this particular line were not lost. Among the biggest issues is, subjectively, the inconvenient location of the USB-A ports (well, there could be more of them), as well as the lack of face or fingerprint scanners in an expensive laptop. And yes, the high cost (147,999 hryvnias/$4,000) is unlikely to make it a bestseller. But those people who can afford such a purchase and are currently looking for a new laptop should definitely take a look at the SCAR 16.

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 16 is a competitive powerful laptop in its class, and stands out from the crowd in this i9+ RTX 4080 variant thanks to its performance and excellent cooling, its pricing, and the beautiful mini LED display. Just make sure you're OK with its peculiar design particularities, though. (this review is still a work in progress and will be finalized in the next few weeks)
