Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 (2023) review: big laptop, big power, big money

 

Raw power comes at a steep price

Top-line GPU and CPU ; Clever case design and cooling ; Amazing screen

Fans can get loud ; Spine-bending weight ; Almost unattainably expensive

If raw power and outright luxury are your only concerns, feel free to switch that verdict for a full five stars – but we feel the weight, fan noise and cost of the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 (2023) might be a little more than most folks can stomach.

Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 review: as ridiculous as I hoped it would be

 

The 2024 Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 takes advantage of everything an 18-inch gaming laptop can -- and that's exactly why it shines.

Exceptional gaming performance It's rarely loud in gaming scenarios Surprisingly decent battery life Great keyboard Stunning mini-LED display

Awkward port layout Plenty of screen flex Insanely big and expensive

“The only thing bigger than the size of the ROG Strix Scar 18 is its performance.”

Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 Review

 

Extreme performance ; Excellent gaming display ; Semi-reasonable size and weight ; Decent battery on iGPU

Plastic construction ; Expensive ; Can become loud under intense work loads

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 is one of the most powerful gaming laptops right now, showing off the latest flagship CPU from Intel (13th Gen Core i9) and GPU from Nvidia (GeForce RTX 4090). It’s big and expensive, but the body feels reasonable for...

Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 review: A gaming kingslayer

 

Don't sleep on the Strix Scar 18's power

Flashy, futuristic design ; Captivating display ; Full, balanced audio ; Impressive overall and gaming performance

Pricy ; Webcam could be better ; Below-average battery life

With its high-powered components, beautiful display and excellent audio, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 leaves a swath of destruction in its wake and leaving no prisoners.

Asus ROG Strix G18 Review: A hardcore gaming laptop that’s worth all the praise

 

At Rs 2,20,000 the Asus ROG Strix G18 is a bargain, considering the specs and performance that you get. It is a proper, genuine performance beast that can chew through anything that you throw at it. However, this hefty beast has some issues that may be...

Pros: ; – Top-notch performance thanks to the CPU and GPU ; – Razor-sharp display, with a high refresh rate ; – Pretty decent non-gaming battery life ; – Price-to-performance ratio ; – Cooling solution. The fan stays quiet most of the time under light...

– Hefty. Difficult to carry around ; – Uses plastic for the main chassis ; – Integrated webcam leaves a lot to be desired

The Asus Strix G18 comes with a high price tag that might not fit everyone’s budget. Plus, its super powerful abilities are only really needed for specific tasks, so not everyone would benefit from such intense performance. So, who should be interested...

Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 review (2023 G834JY- Core i9 + RTX 4090)

 

This is my detailed review of the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18 series, the most powerful ROG - Republic of Gamers laptop available as of 2023.

refreshed design and sturdy build quality ; good inputs and IO ; balanced 16:10 QHD+ 240 Hz display ; significantly more powerful and better cooled than the 2022 generation ; versatile profiles and excellently-balanced mid-level Performance mode ;...

slightly larger and heavier than the previous Scar 17 ; all the IO is now on the sides, with the updated cooling occupying all the rear edge ; smudgy interior and annoyingly placed status LEDs ; still no card reader, Lock, or biometrics ; pricy in this...

Asus ROG Strix G18 review (2023 G814JI model - i9, RTX 4070, RTX 4080)

 

This is my detailed review of the Asus ROG Strix G18 series, the large screen 18-inch mid-tier Republic of Gamers laptop of the 2023 generation.

refreshed design and sturdy build quality ; good inputs, IO and IPS display ; one of the most powerful options in the mid-tier segment ; versatile power profiles ; better cooled than the Strix G16 variant ; good value in most markets

all the IO is on the sides, with the rear entirely reserved for cooling ; no card reader, Lock, or biometrics ; high CPU temperatures under load, especially with the laptop flat on a desk

Asus ROG Strix G18 review

 

The massive Asus ROG Strix G18 continues the recent rise of 18-inch gaming laptops and lands in a better sweet spot of price and performance than some rivals.

It’s not without flaws, like heat spikes and some keyboard and webcam qualms, but even so, Asus effectively put a desktop into a portable-enough package that you can plop onto your lap (or desk, ideally) to dive into some killer gaming.
