NVIDIA 3D Graphics Unleashed!
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™ 4090 Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost.
NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus
With NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus technologies, this 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 5-10% compared to machines without a MUX Switch, making sure you get the absolute best gaming experience—all without needing touch a single button.
This automatic switching also preserves your machine's battery life, as it can dynamically transition between the high power discrete GPU and the lower power integrated GPU. No matter what you’re doing, your machine will switch to the most optimized mode automatically.
AI-Powered Lifelike Graphics
Get a quantum leap in performance in games and creative apps with AI-powered DLSS 3 and enable lifelike virtual worlds with full ray tracing at speeds unavalable in the last Gen of Desktop GPUS - on a modern Gaming Laptop .
Accelerate Your Ideas
NVIDIA Studio takes your creative projects to the next level. Unlock RTX and AI acceleration in top creative apps, NVIDIA Studio drivers for max stability, and a suite of exclusive tools to fast-track your creativity.
Optimized Power and Performance
NVIDIA Max-Q is an advanced suite of AI-powered technologies that optimize your system for peak efficiency. This enables blazing-fast laptops that are thin, quiet, and have amazing battery life.
Blazing Fast DDR5 Memory
Leveraging the brand new DDR5 standard, enjoy a huge generational performance jump to 4800Mhz, with write times 50% faster than DDR4 equipped machines. This ultra fast memory makes all aspects of the laptop feel snappy, from intense gaming to light web browsing.
Better, Faster, Stronger Storage!
Take on even the largest projects with confidence with Dual 1TB PCI-e 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs configured in RAID 0. With raw throughput up to 7,000MB/s, massive files and large games will load in the blink of an eye!
RoG Intelligent Cooling
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18’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 174,183mm², a 62.59% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 15. 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 18 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 18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.
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 in the middle of an intense battle.
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.
Studio Quality Sound
Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward firing woofers to create an authentic sound stage for your games. Hi-Res audio ensures you hear your music in the same quality it was recorded. Two Way AI Noise Cancelation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction.
All Day Battery Endurance
The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to go the distance. Featuring a 90Wh battery, the laptop can easily browse the web for hours away from the wall before needing a recharge. For flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging is supported up to 100W. When charging using the supplied 330W power adapter, the SCAR 18 can recharge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.
Stay Connected Wirelessly
In modern multiplayer games, a stable internet connection is imperative. The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to join the fight with a dedicated RJ45 port, as well as the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless standard which includes modern Bluetooth connectivity. On Wi-Fi 6E supported networks, enjoy access to the newest wireless band, free from clutter and interference from your home’s other wireless devices, ensuring you never lag out again.
ARMOURY CRATE: Endless Customization
When you want to tweak settings, monitor temperatures, or tinker with your laptop, The ASUS Armoury Crate App is your Command Center. Real-time monitoring allows you to see what your GPU, CPU and memory are doing. RGB can be adjusted on a game-by-game basis with Aura Sync. Fan and power profiles allow you to change the acoustics, power delivery, and thermal characteristics of the laptop on the fly. And exclusive game deals keep your library topped off at all times.
Advanced I/O Ports
When you need to plug into the big screen, the dedicated GPU powers an HDMI 2.1 port for the latest TVs and monitors, increasing total bandwidth from 18 to 48Gbps, and supporting 4K@120Hz / 8K@60Hz content streams. Two USB Type-C ports allow for plenty of connectivity; one with DisplayPort via Alt DisplayPort and advanced power delivery, and a second with Thunderbolt 4 support.
