ASUS ROG – Boundless Virtual Experience
ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition & ROG Flow X16
The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition houses a custom vapour chamber, paired with ROG’s exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU. This allows the SCAR 17 SE to push its hardware further than ever before. 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. However, with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue and offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner.
The new ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch thin and light convertible laptop. It is powered by an AMD Ryzen™ 9 6900HS processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. All while weighing just 2.1 kg. The Flow X16 also features the flagship ROG Nebula HDR Display as well.
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. It follows 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. Additionally, it has clues hidden on the laptop itself.
SCAR Runner is launching alongside a giveaway campaign with over $20,000 in prizes available. This is including the Strix SCAR 17 SE and ROG Slash apparel. The campaign will run from May 17 – June 30, 2022, and complete campaign information can be found here.
