Two new high-performance gaming laptops headlined the latest virtual event of ASUS ROG. For Those Who Dare: Boundless event showcased new ROG Strix and ROG Flow products, including a new fashion line from ROG Slash, and even a new game for ROG Citadel XV.
Check out to see what’s hot and new with ASUS ROG! 🙂
ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition- Specifications
One of the two main products that ASUS ROG launched is the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition. The gaming laptop has the following specs:
- CPU: 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-12950HX
- GPU: Up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti Laptop GPU GDDR6 16 GB
- Memory: Up to 64 GB dual channel DDR5 4800 MHz
- Storage: Up to 4 TB PCIe® 4.0 SSD in RAID 0
- Display: 17.3″ FHD (1920 x 1080 ) 360 Hz / 17.3″ QHD (2560 x 1440) 240 Hz
Unfortunately, the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition doesn’t have any price range yet nor does it have any availability. So you’ll have to stay tuned to official ROG channels if you want to pre-order this gaming laptop. XD
ROG Flow X16 – Specifications
The 2nd headliner during the ASUS ROG For Those Who Dare: Boundless event is the ROG Flow X16, which has the following technical specs:
- CPU: Up to AMD Ryzen™ 9 6900HS Processor
- GPU: Up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Ti GDDR6 8 GB
- Memory: 2 x SO-DIMM, Up to 64 GB DDR5 4800 MHz
- Storage: Up to 2 TB PCIe® Gen 4 SSD
- Display: 16″ 16:10 mini LED QHD (2560×1600), 165 Hz / 16″ 16:10 IPS QHD (2560×1600), 165Hz
What caught my eye about the new ROG Flow X16 is that is features the flagship ROG Nebula HDR Display, so you’re sure to get the best display quality even if the gaming device is a portable one. XD
Like the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition, the ROG Flow X16 also doesn’t have any available price tag or release date in the Philippines yet

ASUS ROG also added new items to its ROG Slash fashion line. Inspired by cyberpunk and the virtual modern world, there are versatile bag and apparel options that have the gaming culture featured in every design.

SCAR Runner – ASUS ROG Citadel XV Expansion
Last but not least, ASUS ROG also announced the expansion of the ROG Citadel XV game, Scar Runner.
