Reviews for the Asus Strix Scar 15 G532LWS-HF162T
The Asus Strix Scar 15 boasts enough power under the hood to rival desktop gaming PCs and a 1080p screen with a whopping 300Hz refresh rate, to start. If only that irksome trackpad worked better, this laptop might have gotten a higher score.

Based on the performance tests, we can see that the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 really comes out on top in most of the CPU and productivity tests. The vigourous sustained turbo speeds on this notebook really allows its CPU performance to shine, flexing its true potential as a heavyweight in the gaming notebook scene. Everything will look perfect, if the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 15 was equipped with a dual-channel memory configuration right out of the box. The gaming performance gap between a single channel and the dual channel memory configuration is just simply too much to ignore. We can see that just by having the system to run in dual channel memory mode, we can see more than 10% of improved performance.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
