Powered by a 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 Laptop GPU with a max TGP of 175W, the SCAR 18 easily handles even the most demanding games. It also comes with a dedicated MUX Switch with support for NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, enabling you to easily harness the true power of your GPU when gaming. With support for up to 64GB of DDR5 RAM and up to 4TB of PCIe Gen4x4 storage, the SCAR 18 can easily game, stream, and create content all at the same time without breaking a sweat. For the ultimate gaming laptop, look no further than the Strix SCAR 18.
Power, meet efficiency
Power through any game or project with an Intel® Core™ i9-13980HX processor, featuring up to a 65W TDP and a hybrid architecture built from the ground up for Windows 11. With up to 8 Performance-cores and 16 Efficient-cores, AAA gaming is flawless and streaming is effortless.
Top-tier components require power, especially when it comes to maximizing your GPU’s performance. Powered by NVIDIA DLSS 3, ultra-efficient Ada Lovelace arch, and Max-Q Technologies, the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 Laptop GPU is fully unleashed with a max TGP of 175W with Dynamic Boost.
Game. Stream. Create.
The SCAR series is built from the ground up for gamers — and, of course, game developers. The Strix SCAR 18 can run all of the latest game engines, enabling you to unlock your creativity and try your hand at making the next great game. Whether you’re a digital artist, streamer, video editor, or dabble with animation and game development, the Strix SCAR 18 has all the horsepower you need to take your creations to the next level. Featuring up to an Intel® Core™ i9 processor and up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 40 Series Laptop GPU, complex projects on popular development tools like Unity and Autodesk render in a snap. You have what it takes to be the best on the battlefield, but are you ready to design the next one?
ROG INTELLIGENT COOLING
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18’s chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate our new full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195,509mm², a 82.5% increase from the 2022 Strix SCAR 17. This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.
Finally, most gaming laptops have a dual fan cooling system, but the SCAR 18 was able to push the performance envelope even further with the introduction of a third fan that helps keep the GPU and VRAM cool. Paired with seven heatpipes and Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal on both the CPU and GPU, the SCAR 18’s cooling system is a marvel of engineering.
ROG NEBULA DISPLAY logo
For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 18 offers an incredible Nebula display with a 240Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 500 nits brightness for stunning gameplay. The 18-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio QHD panel provides staggeringly deep blacks for content that jumps right off the screen, whether you’re watching a movie or playing a fast-moving arena shooter. The SCAR 18 can also be equipped with a Full HD 165Hz panel, with each option offering fantastic color, Dolby Vision, Adaptive-Sync support, and an 89% screen-to-body ratio for a stellar gaming and viewing experience.
GAMING CENTRIC DESIGN
Designed to Win Built for Victory
The Republic of Gamers was built by those who love to play video games. All ROG designs and considerations come with gamers first, from the chassis design, lighting integration, software controls, and macro functions. These ROG exclusive design features not only give you a competitive advantage, but they make sure you never blend in with the crowd.
Press the Attack
The difference between victory and defeat can be separated by a single keystroke, so the SCAR 18 has a professional esports grade keyboard designed to secure the win. Built to last, the Strix SCAR's keyboard switches are rated to last over 20 million presses, and n-key rollover guarantees your system will never miss command even if you’re pressing multiple keys at once. The SCAR has a full-sized keyboard, with dedicated media controls and dedicated hotkeys that are tuned for volume and Armoury Crate controls by default, but can be customized for different functions or macros. And with per key RGB and full Aura Sync customization, the SCAR will always have the looks to match your mood.
Dedicated gaming hotkeys sit just above the left side of the keyboard for quick access to the volume and mic mute controls, operating modes, and Armoury Crate. They are also fully customizable, and can be programmed to launch apps, set as a function key, or used as a macro. The Strix SCAR has all the tools you need for victory.

Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology registers keypresses earlier in the stroke, enabling a more responsive experience for serious gaming and work. Triggering earlier means faster, effortless inputs with greater accuracy.
The shape of the SCAR 18’s touchpad is highlighted.
Large touch pad
Improve everyday comfort and usability with a 10% larger touchpad, and new for 2023, the SCAR 18’s touchpad also comes with a glass coating for a more premium feel. More space means greater precision along with more comfortable hand movements and gestures while you’re navigating.
The 2023 Strix SCAR 18 continues to embody the distinct style of ROG. With sharp chassis designs, unique RGB accents, and a distinct gaming vibe, a Strix laptop will always stand out from the crowd. New for 2023, the Strix SCAR features a rear glow RGB panel, which paired together with per-key RGB illumination on the keyboard and the light bar make the laptop a beacon of gaming power from any angle.
Look beyond the veil
Continuing to push the boundaries of material design, the Strix SCAR 18 features a unique ROG semi-translucent keyboard deck since first introduced in 2020. The SCAR gives you a peek at the powerful internal components that make it a flagship gaming machine while once again trailblazing in the realm of design.
Don your armor
Two armor cap designs are shown. One has stripes and a dot matrix splashed on it, and the other one has a classic ROG pattern.
The Strix SCAR 18’s customizable Armor Caps are one of its signature design elements. Magnetically secured, these bundled caps allow you to make sure the SCAR 18 reflects your personality and can grow with you over time. You can also create your own unique 3D printed Armor Caps.
The laptop lid is shown, with the slash design reflecting the surrounding light.
The SCAR 18 needs a chassis that reflects its immense power. We introduced a brand-new Anti-Fingerprint coating in 2022, leaving the SCAR 18 looking darker than ever and clean at all times. By using a high-powered laser polish pass on the coating, ROG’s signature slash stands out proudly in contrast, making sure the laptop makes a bold statement wherever it goes.
Stun at every angle
A closeup showing the rubber and ROG typographic design beneath the base of the SCAR 16.
Thoughtful details set this laptop apart from the competition. Our 360° design philosophy puts subtle but distinctive elements across every part of the machine. The dot matrix design splashed across the lid cuts down to meet cross-hatched vents beneath the base. An expansive rubberized grip holds the laptop firmly in place and makes it easier to carry. Typographic elements around the trim subtly show off your ROG pride
Dolby Atmos-powered speakers include two tweeters and two downward firing woofers to create an authentic sound stage for your games. Hi-Res audio ensures you hear your music in the same quality it was recorded. Two Way AI Noise Cancelation processes both incoming and outgoing audio to filter any errant background noises, making sure that your calls, chats and streams come through without distraction.
All Day Endurance
The Strix SCAR 18 is ready to go the distance. Featuring a 90Wh battery, the laptop can easily browse the web for hours away from the wall before needing a recharge. For flexibility on the go, USB Type-C charging is supported up to 100W. When charging using the supplied 330W power adapter, the SCAR 18 can recharge from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.
When you need to plug into the big screen, the dedicated GPU powers an HDMI 2.1 port for the latest TVs and monitors, increasing total bandwidth from 18 to 48Gbps, and supporting up to 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz content. Two USB Type-C ports allow for plenty of connectivity—one for DisplayPort and power delivery, and a second with Thunderbolt 4 support.
