ASUS Strix II – The Fastest Gaming Laptop Screen




  • My review of the ASUS ROG Strix GL504 SCAR 2. The best gaming laptop from Asus for FPS players. The Hero 2 for MOBA games has very similar hardware.
    Scar II –
    Hero II –

    With a 144hz – 3ms – thin bezel panel. The new Asus Strix gaming laptops are running the fastest laptop screens. GTX 1060 / 1070 options and i7 8th gen CPUs are well cooled in this awesome gaming laptop.

    1. Oops. I totally botched the product title in the slide. It’s clearly not a Razer Blade. =/
      The new Strix is much improved from last years model and is one of the best offerings from ASUS right now

    2. Hi is there anyone here can help me make decision? I’m planning to buy a gaming PC or laptop to play , but I dunno which one better… Buy a laptop better or build a PC will be better?

    3. asus always fucks something up, like this wonk angle webcam. Fuckin A Asus.
      There is no fuckin need for a thin top bezel. Put the fuckin webcam where it belongs.
      and considering Intel went royalty-free on thunderbolt, there is no excuse not to include thunderbolt, as useless as it is right now.

    4. I need some help to buy a budget gaming laptop with optical drive if possible.
      My budget is 1000-1200 euros

    5. Who else well knows that they can’t afford any of the products Dave2D showcases and just watches his video cause the production quality is amazing

    6. 4 big minuses:
      1)No g-sync, prepare for some tearing in many games.
      2)Air coming out from the right side (where usually your hand is when using a mouse)
      3)No thunderbolt 3, yeah it is a GTX 1070 but you can’t plug it with a high end external monitor and have great results.
      4)Weak battery

    7. Wow, Dave. I’m super into tech, specifically laptops and other things like that. I’ve followed your videos along with other channels and done extensive research throughout the past year and a half of finding the best gaming laptops, with my criteria being specifications, thermals, hardware, software, quality, price, and more. This Asus Scar II is definitely one of the better, if not best new 2018 laptops I’ve seen for the price especially. No other current laptop of in this price range has all the features and qualities this one does, and especially not for the price. At $1999, this out-values the new Razer Blade 15, Gigabyte Aero 15x, Asus GM501, MSI GS65, and more. It may not be the lightest or smallest, but this is an incredible laptop.

    8. can u guys suggest me an inexpensive gaming laptop around $1000 with RGB backliting keyboard on it! plz, gotta buy it next weak. + it must be i7-7gen and at least 1050. Ty

    9. so why am i buy GM501 lol? this one has same tech with GM501 and longer battery and cheap 200$ than GM501 lol?! just a little thick? but screen is more much better!

    10. Sir can u do review on msi ge73 8rf rgb edition..that is very good one laptop and waiting for ur review from long time for it..ty:)

    11. I was waiting for the animation he does when he does the conclusion part πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

    12. Thank you for the quick overview. Looks sweet except for those keys. I have found that Asus has better quality and customer service than Razer.

    13. No Thunderbolt does not fit with the price tag.
      Tiny battery does not fit with use case for thin laptops.
      Poor product

    14. I guess they kept those WASD transparent because almost all gaming laptop’s WASD keys fade/wear out and make an ugly mark on those sets of keys

    15. Is this replacing the newly released (a few months ago) strix laptop that launched with the 2nd gen zephyrus? If so, i feel sorry for the people who bought those laptops..

    16. I think all your videos are great, minimalist yet informative. But im waiting for your Silver Play button and Gold Play button video. Youtube should start rolling out those play buttons for yaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Great Job man!!

    17. Now THIS laptop catches my eye because there are no corny red accents. Loving the sleek grey and all RGB. Damn, I might buy this soon.

    18. Hey are you gonna do a full review of the oneplus 6? I need a new phone but I’d like to see your perspective on it before buying. bless up

    19. RGB on that bottom side things huh
      Asus how bout put RGB fans in laptop
      RGB drive
      RGB ram
      RGB battery?

    20. This thing’s got a chin that’ll make Jay Leno proud. What’s the point of thin bezels when there’s a 2 inch tall chin and the worst webcam placement ever?

    21. I could live without the TB3 but the WASD looks like crap and so is the battery.

      They should have kept the WASD the same as the other keys. Shaved off the 2.5in drive and added a bigger battery. (maybe put in another nvme slot as well?)

    22. I have a MSI laptop and it has an rgb keyboard but, when I reset the laptop the keyboard light changing app was missing. Now I cant change the keyboard color and I cant find the app on the net, what should I do?

    23. I’m allowed to get a gaming laptop for my 12th birthday, You’ve helped me so much so far but I just have one question, which is better, this or the Asus gl503

    24. just a comment, I much prefer plastic finish over metal. I don’t want to fry my fingers whilst I play, I have a predator 17 980m and a MSI GE72 1060 both 6700hq. I can fry an egg on my MSI and its mega uncomfortable.

    25. Asus’s laptops are well made gotta say. I choose Asus over Lenovo and Acer for sure, it’s par with HP in my opinion

    26. Can someone tell me what’s the wallpapers that Dave set for his TV and the Laptop called?
      I’ve been searching for that for so long 😭
      Tq 😘

    27. Guys im getting a gaming laptop soon but I have 2 choices : Razer Blade 2018 and the MSI GS56 stealth stealth – 037 thin

    28. Hey Dave. Maybe should include how long it takes to charge a laptop in your reviews. Just a suggestion. 😊

    29. Can you remove that ugly camo graphic from the keyboard? Who the hell thought thats a good idea? And those clear WSAD keys? cot dammit… I thought this will be the perfect laptop. They even made it less “gamery” from the outside, but once you open it, you get the worst gaming laptop cliche… I could even forgive the missing TB3, since I dont really think Id ever use eGPU with a laptop like this, but the looks are really lame now… Way worse than the last gen :/

    30. It’s actually the third gen offering in the STRIX lineup

      The first was the GL502/702. Second was the GL503/703

    31. I like the design of this but is it worth giving up Gsync to get this This over ROG Strix GL703 GS??????

    32. If you have any extra laptop please give mi πŸ™πŸ™

      I was playing games in brake dance mode πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

      I really love your work keep going
      Big fan πŸ‘πŸ‘

    33. Hey Dave ! That’s good review, thank you !
      But can you recommend me which gaming laptop is the best for the games at high quality for under 1100$ ?
      Maybe I will buy Acer Helios 300 predator but can you recommend me please ? πŸ˜€
      Acre Helios 300 or this laptop or Lenovo Y720 ?

      Thank you so much for replying me

    34. Two things.. First wht are those tubelights on the floor doing dave πŸ˜‹.. Nd secnd lol the way u spinned the fan while describing the ram.. Funny.. Loved it liked it. 😝

    35. Ugh this or the Razer Blade 15? I know they’re in completely different price brackets but I can’t decide. The Asus is practical and reliable, but the Razer is fancy, eye catching, and very portable.

    36. “We’re seeing a lot of high refresh laptops popping up in 2017”. Dave, you’re getting old: It’s 2018 man πŸ™‚

    37. Surface book 2 or Razer Blade 15 or Stealth for versatility? I would like to have graphics and be able to take notes/program.

    38. hi, i’m about to buy a gl703gs, should i wait? where can i check the release date for a GL704? thank you!

    39. which one is better the ge63 raider rgb the aorus x5 v8 or the strix scar II i want to pick up one of these

      ps: sorry if my english is bad, it is not my first language

    40. Anyway you could review the new ROG Strix Scar Edition GL703GS-DS74? Here are the specs.

      17.3” Gaming Laptop, 8th-Gen 6-Core Intel Core i7-8750H processor (up to 3.9GHz), GTX 1070 8GB, 144Hz 3ms display, 16GB DDR4, 256GB PCIe SSD + 1TB FireCuda
