Product Info

Bravery Knows No Bounds!


Hot on the heels of its groundbreaking predecessor, ROG Strix Hero II brings you even more power and style for MOBA esports gaming. We’ve upgraded its design with a super-narrow bezel that gives the laptop a solid, more compact look, and the ultrafast IPS-level display with its 144Hz refresh rate and 100% sRGB color gamut delivers the smoothest, most vivid visuals so you can easily differentiate friends and foes.

A desktop-grade keyboard with a 20-million-keystroke lifespan; twice the industry standard, provides unmatched reliability, while the patented RangeBoost multi-antenna system guarantees ultra-reliable, wider-ranging Wi-Fi coverage.

This Windows 10 Pro gaming laptop incorporates a HyperCool Pro thermal system for the extreme cooling performance required to get the most out of its 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics card. Strix Hero II has raised its game, so you can raise yours!

Design: Ultra-Responsive Narrow-Bezel Display

To give you the maximum advantage in combat, Strix Hero II features the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with a 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time; a must-have for hardcore gamers and esports players. The extremely high refresh rate ensures a true 144fps experience with minimal input lag, while the superfast response time reduces ghosting and motion blur to yield clearer visuals.

The new design also results in less distracting frame, allowing for a more compact body that’s 2.33cm narrower than its predecessor. Strix Hero II is lighter, too, with an overall weight of just 2.4kg that maximizes your agility so you can take the fight with you, wherever you go!

Light It Up With Aura Lighting
Dim the lights, and watch Aura lighting take center stage. The ROG logo on the lid, the front light bar, transparent QWER keycaps and semi-transparent key sides allow Aura to shine brighter than ever before. Together, they add up to show off your own unique style.



Epic Computing Power

Strix Hero II gives you the performance to overpower your opponents: it’s powered by the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8750H 6 Core Processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Graphics with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM.

Storage isn’t an issue either, with a 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD. What ever you play on your Strix Hero II Gaming Laptop, you’re well on your way to becoming a legend...

Connectivity: RangeBoost for Zero-Dead-Spot Wi-Fi Connections

ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for 30% more range, higher Wi-Fi throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans and selects the best pair of antennas able to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard delivers speeds of up to 1.7Gbps; twice that of 802.11ac 2x2 and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!

Keyboard with HyperStrike Pro Technology


A revised keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology puts decisive control at your fingertips. It features a desktop-inspired layout, four hotkeys, customizable RGB backlighting across four zones, a highlighted QWER key group with transparent key caps, and 0.25mm-deep keycap curves for more comfortable typing. Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation and a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute.

N-key rollover technology ensures multiple simultaneous keystrokes are instantly logged, while anti-ghosting ensures no false commands are registered, so you’re in full control when precision is needed. With a lifespan of 20 million key presses, Hero II has one of the most durable keyboards to be found in a laptop; double that of the current industry standard.

Aura SYNC for Ultimate Personalization

Aura Sync technology gives your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. Match the colors of the ROG logo, keyboard, light bar on Strix Hero II with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals.

Clearer, Louder, More Accurate Audio

Strix Hero II delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio via powerful side-firing speakers that immerse you in sound. Smart-amplifier technology monitors audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the speakers, and that makes output up to twice as loud as before with increased dynamic range and bass so you can hear even the most subtle sounds.
