Deploying Nvidia’s RTX 2070 GPU alongside the new Intel Core i9-9880H eight-core CPU is a guaranteed way to get gaming laptop enthusiasts to pay attention. That’s exactly what ASUS does with the new ROG Strix Scar III G531GW gaming laptop. But rather than simply settling on a powerful combination of GPU and CPU, ASUS ups the fight by equipping its premium, yet not oversized, offering with a 15.6” 1080P screen that can run at 240Hz. No, that’s not a typo – 15.6 inches of 240Hz gaming laptop goodness.
And when we venture outside of the eye-catching CPU, GPU, and screen columns on the spec sheet, ASUS’ ROG Strix Scar III G531GW is still impressive. Our model ships with 32GB of dual-channel DDR4-2666 memory, a 1TB Intel 660p NVMe SSD, and Intel Gigabit WiFi. Oh, and let’s not forget everybody’s favourite customisation point – RGB lighting delivered through ASUS’ well-built AURA Sync.
