ASUS has gone all out with their ROG laptop lineup this year, featuring up to the latest Ryzen 9 5900HX processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. Models introduced include the Strix G15 and G17, the Strix SCAR 15 and 17, the Zephyrus G15 and Duo 15SE, as well as the brand-new Flow X13 and accompanying XG Mobile external graphics card.
ROG Strix G15/G17
This year's Strix G series features up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics and up to Ryzen 9 5900HX processors. All variants come with 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 1TB of M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD storage. You can choose from either a 144Hz or 300Hz IPS-level FHD panel.
Prices range from RM5,799 to RM7,799.
ROG Strix SCAR 15/17
The Strix SCAR series are for those who want the best of the best, boasting up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3o80 graphics along with a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor. You'll also enjoy a generous 32GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and 1TB of M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD storage, and a 300Hz 3ms FHS display.
Prices range from RM8,599 to RM13,499.
ROG Zephyrus G15
The Zephyrus G15 offers RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 graphics options, paired with a Ryzen 9 5900HS processor. You can choose from 8GB of RAM + 512GB of storage or a heftier 32GB of RAM + 1TB of storage. All variants feature a 1440p 165Hz 3ms display.
Prices range from RM6,999 all the way up to RM11,499.
ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE
The dual-screen Zephyrus Duo 15 SE comes in two configurations. The lower-end features RTX 3070 graphics paired with a FHD 300HZ display and 1TB of SSD storage. The higher-end model features RTX 3080 graphics paired with a 4K UHD 120Hz display and 2TB of SSD storage. Both variants come with a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor and 32GB of RAM.
The variants are priced at RM12,999 and RM19,999 respectively.
ROG Flow 13 + XG Mobile
The Flow 13 is certainly an interesting product, with the rotating hinge, touchscreen, and compact design facilitating use as a tablet as well as laptop. That said, it does pack a decent amount of punch, with up to a Ryzen 9 5900HS processor paired with a modest GTX1650 graphics card, which is actually great considering its form factor.
If you want some extra juice for serious gaming, the XG Mobile external GPU offers the raw power of a RTX 3080 at your beck and call.
While you can buy the Flow 13 as a standalone product or bundled with the XG Mobile, ROG is not selling the XG Mobile separately at the time of writing.
The two standalone Flow X13 variants are priced at RM5,999 and RM6,499, while the bundle with the XG costs RM13,499.
While some of the variants are available immediately, the others will have a staggered release from now up until the end of February, so stay tuned if you're looking to get your hands on one of these.
In the meantime, you can head on over to ROG's official website for more information.
