ASUS Republic of Gamers today announced the new ROG Strix SCAR 17 X3D, the perfect fusion of cutting-edge silicon and ROG engineering. Featuring the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX3D mobile processor equipped with AMD 3D V-Cache technology for the very first time, the Strix SCAR 17 X3D takes performance to a whole new level. By doubling the L3 cache of the mighty Ryzen 9 7945HX processor, the Ryzen 9 7945HX3D gives users a boost in games that are hungry for this onboard ultrafast memory. Paired with a 240 Hz QHD display, Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on the GPU, and a vapour chamber, the Strix SCAR 17 X3D is ready to dominate the leaderboards.
Making great processors even betterWhile the original 2023 ROG Strix SCAR 17 came equipped with AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors, the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX3D is truly in a league of its own. It leverages the power of AMD 3D V-Cache technology, a stacking of extra ultra-high-speed L3 cache vertically on top of one of the two core compute dies (CCD). This extra cache enables the eight cores to perform certain calculations quickly and efficiently, notably in gaming. For situations where increasing CPU frequency simply doesn’t show significant performance gains, 3D V-Cache technology holds the potential to unlock extra compute power.
When combined with top-tier graphics like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, the new AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX3D processor is an average of 20% faster than the Ryzen 9 7945HX across select titles1. AMD Precision Boost Overdrive[ii] is also fully unlocked on this machine, a BIOS setting that allows gamers to overclock the CPU even further.
A perfect pairingThis new class of power is supported by the same ROG Intelligent Cooling ecosystem that keeps other Strix laptops performing at the top of their game. Thermal Grizzly's Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal has been applied to the GPU to offer up to 17X-better thermal conductivity than traditional pastes, while a full-cover vapour chamber provides next-level cooling performance not just to crucial chips like the CPU and GPU, but other components like the voltage regulator modules (VRMs). With 43.3% coverage of the total motherboard area, the vapour chamber on the 2023 Strix Scar 17 X3D is the best ROG Intelligent Cooling has to offer.
Featuring the same bold and sporty chassis of the original SCAR 17, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 X3D offers plentiful RGB for customization ROG styling across the machine. Robust I/O, including dual USB Type-C along with dedicated HDMI® 2.1 and 2.5G Ethernet ports allow this machine to act as a true battlestation when paired with an external display. When on the move, the QHD 240 Hz panel with G-SYNC support is a joy to game on, with G-SYNC eliminating motion tearing, and NVIDIA Advanced Optimus driving more performance and lower latency than ever before.
