The Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition PCIe Gen. 4 storage in a RAID 0 array ensures that gamers never face bottlenecks. The laptop’s centerpiece is the Core i9-12950HX inside, which is a 65W TDP laptop CPU. Because this is a ROG product, you do get Armoury Crate, which may temporarily increase the processor to 175W.
Other features of the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition include the use of Conductonaut Extreme, a liquid metal compound that keeps the CPU and GPU about 5°C (41°F) cooler than other metal thermal compounds.
