Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G733PY laptop review: Intel is no longer king

AMD Zen 4 and 175 W GeForce RTX 40 combo. Asus' latest gaming laptop is one of the fastest in the market and it doesn't even need any Intel parts. You'll still want to keep a close eye on those high core temperatures, though.

Unveiled at CES 2023, Asus has refreshed its top-end 17.3-inch ROG Strix Scar 17 series with the latest 13th gen Intel CPUs, Zen 4 AMD CPUs, and Nvidia Ada Lovelace GPUs to replace last year's lineup. Other than these internal upgrades, however, the external chassis design remains almost identical year-over-year. We recommend checking out our existing reviews on the 2022 ROG Strix Scar 17 to learn more about the physical features of the 2023 model. Any differences between them will be noted below.

Our configuration in review is the highest-end SKU equipped with the Ryzen 9 7945HX CPU and 175 W GeForce RTX 4090 GPU. Other SKUs are available down to the RTX 4060, but they all carry the same 240 Hz 1440p IPS panel as of this writing.

Competitors to the Strix Scar 17 include other high-end 17-inch gaming laptops like the Razer Blade 17, Alienware m17, MSI GE77, or Aorus 17.

Case — No Changes... Almost

There are three important differences between the 2023 and 2022 models as follows:

  • Asus Keystone is no longer supported. The manufacturer likely recognized that very few owners were using the feature in the first place.
  • New webcam. There is now an integrated webcam whereas last year's model would lack one completely.
  • New superficial markings on the palm rests and outer lid.

The overall chassis is otherwise identical to the year before.

Communication

Wi-Fi 6E is provided by a MediaTek MT7922 instead of the more common Intel AX211 likely because this is an AMD-Nvidia-focused design. Transfer rates and performance are nonetheless steady and reliable when paired to our Asus AXE11000 test router.

Webcam

Though a webcam is better than no webcam at all, Asus went with the lowest common denominator by installing a 1 MP sensor instead of a 2 MP or 5 MP sensor. Other gaming laptops like the Alienware m17 R1 or Razer Blade have higher resolution webcams in comparison. IR is not supported on the Asus.

Display — 1440p Sweet Spot

The 2023 model utilizes the same 240 Hz BOE NE173QHM-NZ2 IPS panel as on the 2022 model. Our measurements below are therefore nearly identical year-over-year. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since the panel offers very fast response times, full DCI-P3 colors, and a decent contrast ratio to be fit for both graphics editing and gaming. Users looking for 4K or OLED options, however, are out of luck at the moment.

The display comes pre-calibrated out of the box with very low average grayscale and color deltaE values of only 1.7 and 1.15, respectively. An end-user calibration is therefore not needed.

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
11.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.9 ms rise
↘ 5.5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 23 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
6.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.8 ms rise
↘ 3.4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (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 (35.1 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18925 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Turbo mode and discrete GPU mode via Asus Armoury Crate prior to running any benchmarks below. Owners are encouraged to become familiar with Armoury Crate as it is the control hub for power modes, MUX, Asus Aura, and other model-specific features and updates.

It's worth noting that we experienced a couple of issues on our test unit. When switching between Optimus and dGPU modes, the system would sometimes fail to load when rebooting. A hard reboot would then be required.

Processor

Processor performance is one of the fastest available on any laptop as detailed in our review of the Ryzen 9 7945HX. Nonetheless, it still trails behind the competing Core i9-13950HX or i9-13900HX just slightly when it comes to single-threaded operations.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon would reveal no DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs of our homepage. Running Prime95, however, would induce a high interrupt latency. We're able to record 2 dropped frames when playing back our one-minute 4K60 test video.

Storage Devices — Performance Throttling Detected

Our unit ships with a 1 TB SK hynix PC801 for sequential read and write rates of about 7200 MB/s and 6200 MB/s, respectively. However, the drive in our unit would exhibit performance throttling issues after about 4 minutes of stress as shown by our graph below. There is no heat spreader or thermal pad on the SSDs to assist in heat dissipation.
