Reviews for the Asus Strix Scar 17 G733QSA-XS99
Asus has quickly become one of the biggest supporters of mobile AMD Ryzen by entrusting the series to power some of its most well-known gaming laptops. The latest ROG Strix Scar 17 forgoes Intel entirely for a liquid metal-cooled Ryzen 9 5900HX to be as fast as an Intel Core i9 desktop PC.

All told, the 2021 version of the Strix Scar 17 is a great gaming machine. It's light and compact enough to be portable and has the battery power and specs to back that up to. It's also easy-on-the-eye both in terms of design and the gaming goodness it delivers. There are a few minor niggles - such as no webcam - and one big one - the price - but otherwise we'd happily recommend this gaming machine as a brilliant purchase that's well worth considering.
