TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 17, 2022 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced multiple new  gaming products at the For Those Who Dare: Boundless virtual event. The new launches include two  high-performance ROG Strix and ROG Flow gaming laptops, a series of new bags and apparel from ROG  Slash, the Team ROG initiative, and a standalone first-person parkour game for ROG Citadel XV. ROG is  dedicated to giving gamers the best technology, products and experiences possible, and the For Those  Who Dare: Boundless event is a continuation of that commitment.

 

ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition 

The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition houses the latest hardware and cutting-edge cooling  solutions to power class-leading gaming experiences. A custom vapor chamber, paired with ROG’s  exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal applied to both the CPU and GPU, allows the SCAR 17 SE  to push its hardware further than ever before. With a maximum CPU TDP of 65 W and a maximum GPU  TGP of 175 W with Dynamic Boost, the SCAR 17 SE has the horsepower to reach the bleeding edge of  high refresh rate gaming without breaking a sweat.  

The SCAR 17 SE continues to dominate with a full suite of high-end components, ensuring that gamers  never encounter a bottleneck. Offering either FHD 360 Hz or QHD 240 Hz panel options, both with just  3 ms response times, the SCAR 17 SE provides crystal-clear motion clarity no matter the resolution. With  up to 64 GB of blazingly-fast DDR5 4800 MHz RAM and PCIe® Gen 4 storage in a RAID 0 array, this  gaming juggernaut leaves loading times in the dust. 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, but with a UV flashlight, the ink appears green and blue, and  offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner.

 

ROG Flow X16 

The new ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch thin and light convertible laptop, powered by an AMD Ryzen9  6900HS processor and an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX3070 Ti Laptop GPU, with support for the XG Mobile  family of external GPUs, all while weighing just 2.1 kg. The Flow X16 also features the flagship ROG  Nebula HDR Display, a dazzling QHD / 165 Hz Mini LED panel with 1100 nits peak brightness and a  100% DCI-P3 gamut. ROG has not sacrificed usability and upgradeability for this thin and light form  factor. These premium parts are complemented by the all-new Frost Force Technology and Pulsar  Heatsink, featuring three fans and a high density heatsink to keep performance high and temperatures  low.

 

Expanded ROG Slash fashion line 

Inspired by cyberpunk and the code that builds our modern virtual world, these products offer versatile  bag and apparel options, are built with premium materials, and are designed with gaming culture at their  core. 

ROG Slash is also defined by its versatile utility and durable build quality. With adjustable straps, multiple  compartments, and water-repellent TPU materials, the Crossbody Bag, Backpack, Hip Bag, and  Protective Laptop Bag are ready to secure the essentials of everyday life, while the new Cobra Buckle  Cap and Bucket Hat offer standout style and protection from the elements. 

Celebrate gaming with #TeamROG 

Team ROG is expanding its roster in 2022, pairing high-end ROG products with a diverse cast of  influencers, professional gamers, content creators and athletes from around the world. Team ROG  members have all agreed to join ROG in promoting gaming across the globe.  

ROG is delighted to continue the current partnership with esports team Misfits Gaming as a part of the  broader Team ROG initiative. ROG is also pleased to announce a new partnership with ReKT Gaming,  an organization that operates esports teams and content creation across a range of today’s most popular  games.

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  following 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, with clues hidden on the laptop  itself. SCAR Runner is launching alongside a giveaway campaign with over $20,000 in prizes available,  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.
