Street Price: £2000 GBP / $2000 USD / $2000 AUD
The last 6 months have been the most active in the GPU market with a number of prominent hardware launches which saw NVIDIA unveil their RTX 20-series graphics cards. While the desktop variants have come thick and fast, the mobile versions have trickled through well into 2019.
It’s no secret that the RTX 20-series graphics cards are capable of delivering some astounding performance figures but beyond this, we’re also able to utilise exclusive RTX features like real-time ray tracing and DLSS too.
Today we have in our hands the newly released ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II (GL504GV). This gaming laptop is designed to satisfy those wanting a slice of mid-range action via Intel’s Core i7-8750H, 16GB DDR4 and the RTX 2060. ROG has also stepped away from the typical TN panel in favour of the superior 144Hz IPS display.
