ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 is incredibly powerful with its CPU Comet Lake and RTX 2070 Super. GPU can easily cope with 1440p resolution and active ray tracing. Limiting the resolution to 1080p improves the quality of effects in interactive stories. Therefore, the basic configuration is enough, which is ready to be challenged by modern titles.

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15: Sum Up

Worth Considering If:

1. Requires an almighty rig for games. This beast lives up to expectations in many ways. RTX 2070 Super and 16GB RAM are installed even in a simplified configuration. These components do an excellent job with ultra in the vast majority of titles.

Not Worth Considering If:

1. There is a budget cap. The starting price of $1,649 in the base configuration also requires a balanced decision. Perhaps a different brand or model would be a better fit. Not the worst alternative would be ASUS TUF Gaming.

Final Grade: Overall Score Of 8.4

This ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 is not far behind PC performance. А number of tweaks and innovations are offered for a better one. The incredible FHD panel is above reproach. Still hard to recommend due to the weird touchpad and noisy hot air exhaust system.
