ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL504GV itemized audit
It was a couple months back that Asus dispatched the ROG Strix Scar II in India, controlled by an Intel Core i7-8750H processor and Nvidia GTX 1060/GTX1070 GPUs. At that point at CES, the world was acquainted with RTX GPUs for workstations and indeed, the GPU game changed. Asus rushed to refresh its arrangement of gaming machines and we currently have the RTX rendition of the Strix Scar 2, the organization’s FPS-driven gaming PC. Asus discloses to us that they won’t suspend the 10- arrangement controlled machine until further notice, permitting gamers to have a decision across different value focuses. How about we discover exactly the amount of an improvement the RTX variation of the Scar 2 has to bring to the table over the non-RTX one.
ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR II Specifications
The ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR II GL504GV is fueled by the Intel Core i7-8750H and a NVIDIA RTX 2060 6GB SKU. There is additionally a more costly variation with the RTX 2070, which isn’t the Max-Q variation for anybody pondering. The survey unit we got had the beneath specs . ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR II GL504GV Specifications Processor : Intel Core i7-8750H 2.2 GHz Stage : 300- arrangement Smash FSB : 2666 MHz Smash Capacity 16 GB Screen Size 15.6–inches 144 Hz Screen Size 1920×1080 GPU Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB DDR6 SSD Western Digital 256GB NVMe HDD Seagate FireCuda 1 TB Ethernet Realtek GbE Controller Wi-Fi Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9560 Sound Realtek ALC294 Battery 4210 mAh 66 Whr @15.4v Air conditioning Adapter 230W Weight 2.4 Kg Manufacture The Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 conveys forward similar denews24nation as its non-RTX partner, keeping up consistency in the product offering. We love the RGB light strip that sits on the facade of the PC, just underneath where the top closes, and the ROG logo on the top, which sparkles. The PC gauges a prominent 2.4 kilograms, making it not extremely simple to carry around the machine. The PC has an all out thickness of over an inch and subsequently, doesn’t fit in most camera packs as I unfortunately learned on an ongoing global outing where the PC went with me.
The development of the PC is pretty strong, however the top has a touch of flex, on the top, yet additionally on the pivot. Being as flimsy as the showcase may be, it is simple for it to flex in the event that you lift it or close it from one edge. The depend on which the showcase rests is itself solid and holds the presentation in place without any leeway. The top of the Scar 2 shows some flex
The point here is, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 is manufactured well, with the tradeoff being a somewhat thick body and the 2.4 kilos of haul.
A look in the engine
One of the delights of possessing a gaming PC is realizing that when the opportunity arrives, you can take the base off and redesign a portion of the inward segments so as to support execution. Organizations have adopted various strategies to make this cycle simpler (or harder now and again) and with Scar 2, the cycle is some place in the center. Least demanding redesigns are the point at which you should simply remove a little board off the base by unscrewing one of two screws. With this machine, be that as it may, the whole base needs to fall off.
When the inner parts are uncovered, you are welcomed with a red motherboard, and we can’t resist the urge to contemplate whether this is some sort of a denews24nation decision, given ROG’s unique image tones being red and black. The 16GB of RAM is graciousness 2 8GB sticks timed at 2666MHz. This is a major help as the non-RTX variant of the Scar 2 that we had investigated before accompanied a solitary 16GB Stick. This time, the Scar 2 games 2x8GB RAM configuration
There’s likewise the 256GB NVMe drive that works at PCIe x2 speeds, alongside a 1TB Seagate FireCuda SSHD. The SSHD is mounted in a caddy, which is upheld by a smidgen of froth cushioning to forestall any disasters on account of unexpected development.
For cooling, we see a liberal measure of copper heat pipes going over the new RTX 2060 and the Intel Core i7-8750H joined by two 12V fans, which accompany an interesting denews24nation that helps separate the residue from the air.
As far as update and fixes, clients ought to have the option to effortlessly supplant the RAM, SSD, HDD and even the Wi-Fi card if necessary. The speakers are additionally effectively replaceable regarding how they’re stuffed into the machine, yet whether you’ll have the option to discover substitutions effectively is another issue through and through. The double fans ought to likewise be effectively replaceable if necessary, if you can discover saves for them also. Large 12V fans for most extreme airflow Keyboard, Trackpad, I/O One of my #1 things about the Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 is the console, which additionally accompanies a conservative num-cushion as an afterthought. The console itself offers RGB backdrop illumination with 4 zones and a large group of impacts accessible in the Aura support. The keys themselves offer a 1.8mm of movement and shape of 0.25mm. The arch is scarcely observable to the eye, yet when your fingers strike the keys, you feel it mate impeccably with your fingers. The WASD keys are straightforward on the Scar 2, giving it a committed fps-gamer feel. While the console itself is extraordinary for gaming, it likewise fills in as an incredible instrument for composing, with its delicate key presses and low activation point. The committed volume keys, a key to quiet the mouthpiece and one to raise the Asus Armory Crate programming are certainly an extraordinary thing to have. The console highlights RGB lighting in four zones
The trackpad on the Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 uses Windows’ accuracy drivers and has two unmistakable left and right snap keys. The upside of this sort of snap arrangement is that the two of them can be utilized together while gaming, in the uncommon case that you wind up without an outside mouse. Without anyone else, the trackpad offers brilliant reaction for most use cases, yet normally, isn’t suggested for serious gaming. Dedicated volume and Armory Crate keys are helpful
The Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 likewise offers a liberal choice of ports, ideal for a variety of sorts of clients. As far as USB, there are an aggregate of 3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, two on the left and one on the right. There is additionally a USB Type-C port that works at 5Gbps. Alongside a HDMI 2.0 port, the Scar 2 likewise has a Mini Displayport 1.2 connector which is fit for driving screens with a goal of 4K @ 60Hz. Bringing down the goal on the outer presentation takes into consideration outline rates as high as 144Hz (at 1080p). On the correct side, you will locate the trusty old SD Card opening also.
The Asus ROG Strix Scar 2 games a Full HD board prepared to do 144Hz invigorate rate and a reaction season of 3ms. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 on board this machine isn’t ground-breaking enough to push most games to this edge rate at high illustrations settings. Be that as it may, if you tone down the illustrations on certain games, you can end up appreciating higher casing rates. We’ll examine this in the exhibition segment for points of interest. the showcase additionally sports very restricted bezels, something we love.
The IPS show is said to offer 100 percent sRGB shading multiplication, yet we were just ready to accomplish 98 percent inclusion as uncovered by our Spyder shading alignment instrument. What was a bit of amazing, be that as it may, was finding some solid light seep on the edges of the showcase when there’s a totally dark picture on the screen. The light drain, fortunately, doesn’t have any presence when there is content playing on the screen, regardless of whether its games, watching motion pictures or even to such an extent as perusing the web.
The IPS board is an extraordinary expansion and a great deal of gaming workstations are beginning to utilize this. This stems from organizations at last understanding that imaginative experts are similarly prone to get gaming workstations as gamers. Since innovativeness devices require equivalent, if not more force than even the most requesting of games, the main thing that was missing was a shading precise showcase. With an IPS board ready, picture takers, non mainstream producers and in any event, shading craftsmen have available to them the ideal apparatus for their work.
