ASUS reveals the Strix SCAR 17, world's first 17.3-inch gaming laptop with a 360Hz display.
Our history of display leadership is rooted in a need for speed. ROG introduced the very first 120Hz IPS-level display for laptops and has remained on the leading edge ever since. We also brought overdrive from desktop gaming monitors to notebook displays, enabling quicker pixel response times that produce a sharper picture. Our track record pushing the limits of refresh and response can be traced from early demos of next-gen technology through firsts on-shelf and with broad deployment.

The latest milestone is the 360Hz/3ms display in the new Strix SCAR 17. It’s the world’s fastest laptop panel, stretching unmatched speed across a generous 17.3-inch diagonal that further amplifies the experience. The refresh rate matches our fastest desktop monitor, the ROG Swift 360Hz, and the 3ms response time uses the same advanced overdrive algorithm available across our latest laptop displays.

We continue to push the envelope on the SCAR because every millisecond matters for its esports mission. Moving to 360Hz cuts the delay between fresh frames by 33% compared to the 240Hz standard common for tournaments. That’s a big improvement given the small margins of victory in high-level competition.

While top speed is only available in a supersized screen, the Strix SCAR 15 has the fastest panel available in that size. The 15.6-inch 300Hz/3ms display is available across multiple models in our 2021 lineup, including the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE and Strix G15.
