Reviews for the Asus Strix Scar III G531GW

86% ASUS ROG Strix SCAR III G531GW (Core i9-9880H, RTX 2070) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
ASUS is focusing on more than just RGB lighting with the third incarnation of its ROG Strix Scar. The company has also included a nice security feature called Keystone along with a host of powerful hardware. The G531GW offers plenty on paper, but can it meet expectations?

It was never fun playing FPS games on a laptop, its ergonomics were poor, the feedback from the keypad touches couldn’t match up with a USB keyboard and the weird positioning of the buttons, also the touchpad being a major obstacle for my hand’s range of movement. This was back in 2012, but times have changed now and so have the laptops. Let’s find out what the Strix Scar II in 2019 has to offer?

Source: Kitguru English
Put simply, if you want a high-performance gaming laptop with all the bells-and-whistles in a form factor that can comfortably fit inside a backpack, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar III G531GW-AZ055R is a strong choice. 32GB of DDR4, an eight-core Core i9 CPU, the non-Max-Q RTX 2070, and a 240Hz screen aren’t easy to find in a chassis of this relative slenderness with such strong build quality, but ASUS delivers well.
