Power, meet efficiency
Power through any game or project with an Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor, featuring up to a 65W TDP and a hybrid architecture built from the ground up for Windows 11. With up to 8 Performance-cores and 16 Efficient-cores, AAA gaming is flawless and streaming is effortless.
16 E-cores + 8 P-cores
PL2 Manual Mode
Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to maximizing your GPU’s performance. Powered by NVIDIA DLSS 3, ultra-efficient Ada Lovelace arch, and Max-Q Technologies, the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4080 Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost.
With Dynamic Boost
MUX Switch with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus
With NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus, the laptop can automatically route frames from the discrete GPU directly to the display using a MUX Switch, bypassing the integrated graphics. This pathing improves performance by 5-10% compared to machines without a MUX Switch, making sure you get the absolute best gaming experience — all without
Energy-Efficient DDR5 Memory
Boasting up to a 64GB capacity normally reserved for high-end workstations ultra-fast 4800MHz memory allows the Zephyrus M16 to multitask with ease. Both SO-DIMMs are easily accessible for future upgrades.
Games, applications, and large files load at warp speed on an ultrafast PCIe® 4.0 SSD. Up to 2TB of storage leaves loads of room for creative apps and tons of games, with space to spare for your professional portfolio. A second M.2 SSD slot supports PCIe® 4.0 and RAID 0, which gives you the flexibility to easily add more storage to boost total capacity or run a separate scratch disk to accelerate content creation.
Game. Stream. Create.
The SCAR series is built from the ground up for gamers — and, of course, game developers. The Strix SCAR 16 can run all of the latest game engines, enabling you to unlock your creativity and try your hand at making the next great game. Whether you’re a digital artist, streamer, video editor, or dabble with animation and game development, the Strix SCAR 16 has all the horsepower you need to take your creations to the next level. Featuring up to an Intel® Core™ i9 processor and up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 40 Series Laptop GPU, complex projects on popular development tools like Unity and Autodesk render in a snap. You have what it takes to be the best on the battlefield, but are you ready to design the next one?
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 16’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 82.5% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.
Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 16 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU, the SCAR 16’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.
Brand New Display
For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 16 offers an incredible Mini LED Nebula HDR panel with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 1100 nits of peak brightness for stunning HDR gameplay. The 16-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio panel with an 90% screen-to-body ratio is perfect for fast moving arena shooters and other frenetic games. The SCAR 16 can also be equipped with a Full HD 165Hz panel. No matter what kind of gamer you are, the SCAR’s new 16-inch panel is sure to impress.
Designed to Win
Built for Victory
The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs and considerations come with gamers first, from the chassis design, lighting integration, software controls, and macro functions. These ROG exclusive design features not only give you a competitive advantage, but they make sure you never blend in with the crowd.
Press the Attack
The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the SCAR 18 has a professional esports grade keyboard designed to secure the win. Built to last, the Strix SCAR's keyboard switches are rated to last over 20 million presses, and n-key rollover guarantees your system will never miss command even if you’re pressing multiple keys at once. The SCAR has a full-sized keyboard, with dedicated media controls and dedicated hotkeys that are tuned for volume and Armoury Crate controls by default, but can be customized for different functions or macros. And with per key RGB and full Aura Sync customization, the SCAR will always have the looks to match your mood.
The 2023 Strix SCAR 16 continues to embody the distinct style of ROG. With sharp chassis designs, unique RGB accents, and a distinct gaming vibe, a Strix laptop will always stand out from the crowd. New for 2023, the Strix SCAR features a rear glow RGB panel, which paired together with per-key RGB illumination on the keyboard and the light bar make the laptop a beacon of gaming power from any angle.
