Reviews for the Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704GW-EV005T

Review – ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL704 RTX2070
Source: NLT English
The ASUS ROG Strix GL704 SCAR II has the most up to date system with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPU. Pairing with the modern chassis design, it allows anyone to enjoy the next generation gaming graphics while on the go. We appreciate the capabilities of the laptop itself with just a small qualm over the lack of proper cooling for the CPU itself.

ASUS ROG STRIX GL704 SCAR II (RTX 2070) 17″ Gaming Laptop First Impressions
Source: B2G English
For now, the GL704 looks and feels great and if you’re after a new 17″ laptop powered by RTX graphics, this may be something to consider. Great screen, great build quality and good peripheral layout make this an effective work horse as well as a gaming machine for those that need a portable solution for both.

ASUS ROG GL704 (SCAR II / HERO II) review – everyone hop the RTX ship
Source: Laptop Media English
Despite the controversial results in the gaming tests ASUS ROG GL704 (SCAR II / HERO II) is certainly an incredible device. We are happy to see how manufacturers find ways to put extremely powerful hardware in ever so smaller form factor. In the past, when one would hear about a GeForce GTX 1070 on a laptop, one would imagine Acer Predator 17, Alienware 17 or even MSI Titan. However, lately things have changed and we see more powerful Razer laptops, as well as MSI’s GS75 and ASUS’s own Zephyrus line-up. In order to compete with them, ASUS had to upgrade their ROG line-up as well. This resulted in the GL704, which is somewhere on the balance point between gaming ultrabooks and monsterbooks.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Laptop): High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the desktop variant, the GPU is clocked lower. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
