COOLING - ROG INTELLIGENT COOLING

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 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 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.

- Tri-Fan Technology
- Full-surround Vents
- Up to 15 °C cooler CPU & GPU Temperatures
- Covered by 7 Heatpipes
- Conductonaut extreme

 

Full-Surround Vents
Hot air needs somewhere to go, so we redesigned the SCAR 16's exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the SCAR 16 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. We even moved the heatsinks closer to the vents themselves, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine and avoid any recirculation.

Full-Width Heatsink
The SCAR 16 features 374 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, providing a total of 174,183 mm² of surface area - an increase of 62.59% from the 2022 Strix SCAR 15. The new full-wdith design is double the size of a typical laptop heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.

Tri-Fan Technology
At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Frost Force Technology directs air though precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.

Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal
The 2023 Strix SCAR 16 features Thermal Grizzly's cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal, which improves the substance's heat transfer even further. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium- and gallium-based compound offers 17X higher conductivity, in addition to CPU and GPU temperature reductions of up to 15 degrees. Used exclusively by ROG, this material offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.
*Temperature improvements compared to the previous gen thermal compound, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

Up to 7 comprehensive heatpipes
The Strix SCAR 16's comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. With 7 heat pipes and an increase in total coverage from 29% to 33% of the motherboard compared to last generation, this extensive thermal solution helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.

0dB Ambient Cooling
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.

Dust Filter
First introduced on the 2022 Zephyrus G14, the ROG Strix SCAR 16 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.
*Internal testing in a simulated dusty environment.

0.1mm ultra thin fin
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. With up to 374 heatsink fins totaling 174,183mm² of surface area, heat flows out of the system incredibly efficiently, letting your components boost higher, for longer.

CoolZone keyboard
Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard warm to the touch. To keep your fingers cool, small vents around the WASD keys let the fans draw cool air into the chassis from above.

Scenario Profiles
Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between these modes based on the application you're running, alongside other vital system settings. Switch between lighting configurations automatically, disable the Windows key and touchpad during games, and automate to your heart's content. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand.

 

DISPLAY - ROG NEBULA HDR

For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 16 offers an incredible Nebula HDR panel with a 240Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. 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. No matter what kind of gamer you are, the SCAR's new 16-inch panel is sure to impress.

- 500 Nits Peak Brightness
- 240Hz/3ms Refresh rate
- 100% DCI-P3 Technology
- NVIDIA G-SYNC

 

Nebula HDR Engine
Our Nebula HDR Display™ is powered by AMLED technology from AUO and ROG's own in-house backlight algorithm.
This adaptive control technology utilizes image processing as well as dynamic dimming and boosting to create hyper-accurate local dimming, which reduces the blooming effect seen on some HDR panels.

 

Dolby Vision® Technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision® makes media look better. The technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.

 

Pantone® Color Validation
Each IPS-level display is factory-calibrated to ensure that colors are accurate to the Pantone® palette. Artists, designers, and content creators can add high-quality content to their portfolios and enjoy richer gaming visuals all on the same machine.

 

100% DCI-P3 Color Coverage
While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 75% of the DCI-P3 spectrum used for professional filmmaking. Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut and rich color, and let you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be experienced.

 

NVIDIA® G-SYNC®
Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With NVIDIA G-SYNC, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU's frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.

 

DisplayHDR™1000
Supports HDR technology across a range of luminance (up to 1000cd/m2) to deliver a wider color range and higher contrast than traditional monitors. The brightest whites and the darkest blacks bring out details like never before. This monitor delivers contrast performance that passes DisplayHDR™ 1000 certification. To ensure color accuracy, each ROG monitor is factory pre-calibrated.

 

TUV Rheinland Certification
Nebula Displays are TUV Rheinland® Certified, ensuring they are low blue light compliant and flicker-free, preventing eyestrain during long gaming or content creation sessions.

Possibly the Best Computer I've Ever Owned

My background:
Building computers since childhood and commercial software engineer for ~20 years. I've owned many systems and built many desktop rigs.

This purchase:
I required this market leading CPU performance (13980HX), fully up-gradable RAM and a decent NVIDIA GPU. Initially went for a Vivobook wit the same CPU, but had some issues with that so opted to upgrade to the ROG Strix SCAR 16.

Upgrades:
- 2x Crucial 48GB DDR5 Laptop RAM SODIMM - 5600Mhz - CL46 from PbTech for total 96GB of memory!
- 2x Western Digital Black SN850X 2TB Gen4 NVMe SSD from my previous laptop.

ROG lives up its name, what a gaming laptop!

Just awesome, can't fault anything when the top of range CPU meets a full fat RTX4080 laptop GPU in ROG's new scar chassis.
Both CPU and GPU can run at their full potential under 80 degrees C with acceptable fan noise.
Screen is amazing, fast, bright and color is vibrant despite miniLED is absent on this NZ version.
Highly recommended!

Amazing performance

Awesome laptop. Amazing performance. No disappointment.

The exterior lighting is subtle for the user, not so much for anyone looking at you thanks to the wide strip illuminating on the back.

The cooling fans are a little noisier than I would have liked when the graphics are running on maximum. Keyboard and screen are excellent visually and to use.

There are not a lot of visible exterior design elements to see on this laptop. They are subtle and in the same colour, so it has a professional touch rather than screaming its technical superiority.

Happy customer.

COOLING - ROG INTELLIGENT COOLING

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 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 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.

- Tri-Fan Technology
- Full-surround Vents
- Up to 15 °C cooler CPU & GPU Temperatures
- Covered by 7 Heatpipes
- Conductonaut extreme

 

Full-Surround Vents
Hot air needs somewhere to go, so we redesigned the SCAR 16's exhaust vents to give it the best flow possible. In addition to making the entire rear of the machine an exhaust vent, the SCAR 16 retains its side vents, giving it ample opportunity to move hot air out of the system. We even moved the heatsinks closer to the vents themselves, giving hot air a straight-line path out of the machine and avoid any recirculation.

Full-Width Heatsink
The SCAR 16 features 374 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, providing a total of 174,183 mm² of surface area - an increase of 62.59% from the 2022 Strix SCAR 15. The new full-wdith design is double the size of a typical laptop heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.

Tri-Fan Technology
At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Frost Force Technology directs air though precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.

Conductonaut Extreme Liquid Metal
The 2023 Strix SCAR 16 features Thermal Grizzly's cutting-edge Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal, which improves the substance's heat transfer even further. Compared to traditional thermal pastes, this indium- and gallium-based compound offers 17X higher conductivity, in addition to CPU and GPU temperature reductions of up to 15 degrees. Used exclusively by ROG, this material offers the highest thermal transfer available on a laptop.
*Temperature improvements compared to the previous gen thermal compound, as tested internally by ASUS. Thermal conductivity compared to industry standard.

Up to 7 comprehensive heatpipes
The Strix SCAR 16's comprehensive thermal design includes an extended heat spreader that absorbs heat from the CPU, GPU, VRAM, and VRM. With 7 heat pipes and an increase in total coverage from 29% to 33% of the motherboard compared to last generation, this extensive thermal solution helps sustain and extend the overall performance, reliability, and lifespan of the system.

0dB Ambient Cooling
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.

Dust Filter
First introduced on the 2022 Zephyrus G14, the ROG Strix SCAR 16 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.
*Internal testing in a simulated dusty environment.

0.1mm ultra thin fin
Thermal energy is dissipated by four heatsinks, each lined with ultrathin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. These fins are half the size of typical solutions, allowing for higher density for heat dissipation and lower air resistance to allow for smoother flow. With up to 374 heatsink fins totaling 174,183mm² of surface area, heat flows out of the system incredibly efficiently, letting your components boost higher, for longer.

CoolZone keyboard
Extended gaming sessions can heat up internal components and make the keyboard warm to the touch. To keep your fingers cool, small vents around the WASD keys let the fans draw cool air into the chassis from above.

Scenario Profiles
Our Silent, Performance, and Turbo modes are just the beginning. Scenario Profiles allow your system to automatically switch between these modes based on the application you're running, alongside other vital system settings. Switch between lighting configurations automatically, disable the Windows key and touchpad during games, and automate to your heart's content. Armoury Crate makes adjustments in an instant to best fit the task at hand.

 

DISPLAY - ROG NEBULA HDR

For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 16 offers an incredible Nebula HDR panel with a 240Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. 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. No matter what kind of gamer you are, the SCAR's new 16-inch panel is sure to impress.

- 500 Nits Peak Brightness
- 240Hz/3ms Refresh rate
- 100% DCI-P3 Technology
- NVIDIA G-SYNC

 

Nebula HDR Engine
Our Nebula HDR Display™ is powered by AMLED technology from AUO and ROG's own in-house backlight algorithm.
This adaptive control technology utilizes image processing as well as dynamic dimming and boosting to create hyper-accurate local dimming, which reduces the blooming effect seen on some HDR panels.

 

Dolby Vision® Technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision® makes media look better. The technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.

 

Pantone® Color Validation
Each IPS-level display is factory-calibrated to ensure that colors are accurate to the Pantone® palette. Artists, designers, and content creators can add high-quality content to their portfolios and enjoy richer gaming visuals all on the same machine.

 

100% DCI-P3 Color Coverage
While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 75% of the DCI-P3 spectrum used for professional filmmaking. Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut and rich color, and let you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be experienced.

 

NVIDIA® G-SYNC®
Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With NVIDIA G-SYNC, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU's frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.

 

DisplayHDR™1000
Supports HDR technology across a range of luminance (up to 1000cd/m2) to deliver a wider color range and higher contrast than traditional monitors. The brightest whites and the darkest blacks bring out details like never before. This monitor delivers contrast performance that passes DisplayHDR™ 1000 certification. To ensure color accuracy, each ROG monitor is factory pre-calibrated.

 

TUV Rheinland Certification
Nebula Displays are TUV Rheinland® Certified, ensuring they are low blue light compliant and flicker-free, preventing eyestrain during long gaming or content creation sessions.
