ASUS ROG Brings Two New Gaming Laptops for Gaming Enthusiasts

Published

on

ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced multiple new gaming products at the For Those Who Dare: Boundless virtual event. The new launches include two high-performance ROG Strix and ROG Flow gaming laptops, a series of new bags and apparel from ROG Slash, the Team ROG initiative, and a standalone first-person parkour game for ROG Citadel XV. ROG is dedicated to giving gamers the best technology, products and experiences possible, and the For Those Who Dare: Boundless event is a continuation of that commitment.

ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition

The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition houses the latest hardware and cutting-edge cooling solutions to power class-leading gaming experiences. A custom vapor chamber, paired with ROG’s exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU, allows the SCAR 17 SE to push its hardware further than ever before. With a maximum CPU TDP of 65 W and a maximum GPU TGP of 175 W with Dynamic Boost, the SCAR 17 SE has the horsepower to reach the bleeding edge of high refresh rate gaming without breaking a sweat.

The SCAR 17 SE continues to dominate with a full suite of high-end components, ensuring that gamers never encounter a bottleneck. Offering either FHD 360 Hz or QHD 240 Hz panel options, both with just 3 ms response times, the SCAR 17 SE provides crystal-clear motion clarity no matter the resolution. With up to 64 GB of blazingly-fast DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and PCIe® Gen 4 storage in a RAID 0 array, this gaming juggernaut leaves loading times in the dust. The machine also features a distinct cyberpunk aesthetic, with first-of-its-kind invisible ink applied directly to its metal chassis. In normal lighting, this substance has a matte metallic texture, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue, and offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner.

ROG Flow X16

The new ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch thin and light convertible laptop, powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU, with support for the XG Mobile family of external GPUs, all while weighing just 2.1 kg. The Flow X16 also features the flagship ROG Nebula HDR Display, a dazzling QHD / 165 Hz Mini LED panel with 1100 nits peak brightness and a 100% DCI-P3 gamut. ROG has not sacrificed usability and upgradeability for this thin and light form factor. These premium parts are complemented by the all-new Frost Force Technology and Pulsar Heatsink, featuring three fans and a high density heatsink to keep performance high and temperatures low.

Expanded ROG Slash fashion line

Inspired by cyberpunk and the code that builds our modern virtual world, these products offer versatile bag and apparel options, are built with premium materials, and are designed with gaming culture at their core.

ROG Slash is also defined by its versatile utility and durable build quality. With adjustable straps, multiple compartments, and water-repellent TPU materials, the Crossbody Bag, Backpack, Hip Bag, and Protective Laptop Bag are ready to secure the essentials of everyday life, while the new Cobra Buckle Cap and Bucket Hat offer standout style and protection from the elements.

Celebrate gaming with #TeamROG

Team ROG is expanding its roster in 2022, pairing high-end ROG products with a diverse cast of influencers, professional gamers, content creators and athletes from around the world. Team ROG members have all agreed to join ROG in promoting gaming across the globe.

ROG is delighted to continue the current partnership with esports team Misfits Gaming as a part of the broader Team ROG initiative. ROG is also pleased to announce a new partnership with ReKT Gaming, an organization that operates esports teams and content creation across a range of today’s most popular games.

Players vault to new heights in SCAR Runner

Available as an expansion of the ROG Citadel XV game, SCAR Runner is a first-person parkour game following the story of X, who is in a race against time to recover critical information. This title also ties in with the physical chassis of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition, with clues hidden on the laptop itself. SCAR Runner is launching alongside a giveaway campaign with over $20,000 in prizes available, including the Strix SCAR 17 SE and ROG Slash apparel. The campaign will run from May 17 – June 30, 2022

Khorwal aka rcool and a five-member Team Wicked Gaming, comprising of skipper Sarda, Hrishikesh Shenoy, Anshul Ajay Adarkar, Shuvajyoti Chakraborty and Ninad Ramesh Sonare, sealed WEC berths after winning the Tekken7 and CS:GO titles respectively at the National Esports Championships, which saw a thrilling competition with the participation of top athletes from across the country virtually.

The upcoming World Esports Championship—organised by the International Esports Federation (IESF), will boast a massive prize pool of USD 500,000 (INR 4 crore approximately).

Besides Tekken7 and CS:GO, WEC will also have DOTA2 and PES2022 titles. A DOTA2 team, which qualified for the 2022 Asian Games, has been selected to represent India at the WEC as well. The team will consist of veteran athletes including Moin Ejaz, Shubham Goli, Ketan Goyal, Abhishek Yadav and Vishal Verenakar, who is included in place of Krish.

As the PES/eFOOTBALL still does not have an option to hold online championship, ESFI has been evaluating to organise an offline event that may be held in Delhi or Mumbai and the dates and venue for the qualifiers will be announced soon.

“The NESC ’22 was a stupendous success in every possible way, there were many impressive results. This Indian contingent will be a tough one to beat and I’m certain that they will not only put up a strong fight but also strive for a podium finish. It’s great to see an immense interest among the Indian youth towards Esports. On behalf of the Esports Federation of India, I wish the entire squad best luck for the regional qualifiers,” said Lokesh Suji, Director of Esports Federation of India and Vice President of the Asian Esports Federation.

A two-day National Esports Championships saw participation of 16 top teams from across the country in a multiplayer first-person shooter esports title CS:GO. The defending champions Wicked Gaming put up a brilliant show and remained undefeated throughout the qualifiers. In the nail-biting final, they defeated Kingpins, an underdog team which gave a tough fight.

“We played really well during our qualifiers and defended our national title. All our hard work and preparation before the event paid off. We have been grinding more since we got to know about the national qualifiers and the whole team put in extra hours for the qualifiers. There will be many good teams across our regional qualifiers and we are prepared to give them a tough fight and make our country proud,” said an elated Sarda, skipper of Team Wicked.

On the other hand, in single-player fighting game Tekken7, Khorwal also successfully defended his title after he brilliantly ended the sensational run of Kashmir’s Arsalan Nabi Wani aka KMR in the final with a 2-0 win. Arsalan had topped the winner brackets while Khorwal entered the final after leading the lower brackets as 36 athletes took part in Tekken7.

“NESC is always an arduous task for Tekken participants since our scene has progressed tremendously well and reached a new zenith. So, it’s a moment to cherish for me. It creates a perfect scenery of success for me after putting my blood and sweat into this game. I am also delighted to see the fresh faces in the scene who are already masters of the trade. This ultimately shows how far we have come as a community. This time I am more devised for the regional finals. As a mountain to climb it already is, I feel confident as well as prepared for this. It’s a great opportunity to prove my mettle against the literal virtuosos of the title and my body, soul and mind, are ready for it. Bring it on, Bali!” said Tekken 7 star Hitesh Khorwal aka rcool.

The Indian contingent will now take part in the World Esports Championships Regional Qualifiers, for which the dates will be announced soon by the IESF. For CS:GO & Tekken 7, Regional Qualifiers will be played but irrespective of the results, they will participate in the Global Finals to be held in Bali.

ESFI continued its partnership with the country’s top sports and Esports specialised communication firm—Artsmith – Concepts & Visions, which will continue its support as their communication partner for the prestigious World Championships.
