Inspired by our collaboration with BMW Designworks Group, the Strix G melds form and function with a 3D Flow Zone that offers cutting-edge cooling you can see. Contrasting brushed finishes slice across the lid, accenting an asymmetrical cut-out that ensures unrestricted airflow around the back, where scissor door hinges make room for additional venting. The sculpted shape and stealthy surfaces add low-key style that you can accentuate with an optional light bar that wraps RGB around the edges.



Shift with speed between serious gaming and productivity. The Strix G enables stunning visuals that immerse you deeper. The latest 9th gen Intel® Core™ processor pairs with up to 32GB of DDR4-2666 RAM to slice through intensive games and apps. The enormous storage capacity, a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 SSD lets you carry your entire game library and work portfolio anywhere you go.



ROG's Intelligent Cooling philosophy mixes the right features and system settings to ensure the best experience for each situation. The Strix G augments its well-ventilated exterior with a self-cleaning thermal module that ejects dust to improve longevity. Dual N-Blade fans spin 83 blades to increase airflow, and ultra-thin fins expand the surface area for heat dissipation. ROG Armoury Crate software seamlessly switches between operating modes to optimize performance and acoustics for the task.



Dim the lights and let Aura Sync take center stage
The Strix G's keys feature translucent edges and transparent WASD caps to artfully accent the keyboard. They're joined by an optional wraparound light bar that adds style to the outer rim of the chassis.

With the toughness to last over 20 million keypresses, the Strix G can maintain its accuracy over a long lifespan of serious gaming.



The Strix G's side-firing speakers put you in the thick of the action. Smart Amp technology monitors audio output and makes real-time adjustments to keep the speakers within thermal and excursion limits, preventing damage to the cones. The resulting sound has less noise distortion, higher dynamic range, more bass, and significantly higher potential output. Pump up the volume and hear every enemy movement, firefight, and environmental audio cue in the game.
