Following AMD's announcement of its new next-generation Ryzen 5000 mobile processors at CES 2021, vendors have been quick to unveil its laptops. ASUS has seen a busy CES 2021 so far, including its announcement of new Strix laptops, designed for gaming on the move. One of these is the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15, which is powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 H processor and is paired up with NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX mobile graphics.

The ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 (G533) includes a 15.6-inch 1440p DCIP-3 display with a 165 Hz refresh rate and has support for VESA Adaptive Sync. It has a thin bezel design with an 85% screen to body ratio, which ASUS claims is an improvement over its 2020 model. The basis of the design is around Cyberpunk, with ASUS looking to capitalize on the launch of game developer and publisher CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077.

Designed with Esports in mind, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 uses AMD's latest Ryzen 5000 H mobile processor alongside NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 and 3080 mobile graphics, and it will be available with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 memory. It includes Dolby Atmos support with four integrated speakers with an internal microphone with noise cancellation assistance. There's a 90 Wh Type-C charger, with Wi-Fi 6, one USB 3.2 G2 Type-C with support for DisplayPort, three USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and an RJ45 port powered by an unspecified Ethernet controller.

ASUS hasn't currently provided pricing on the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15, but we expect to hear more soon.

    No webcam... WHY? Reply

    Because someone needed to prove that an oldschool nostril cam is not the worst of all possible designs. Reply

    Because the primary demographic that this is marketed to does not use webcams. Reply

    Gaming laptop needs to do everything else and game also. Leaving out the webcam means this is a 2020 laptop with a 2021 CPU/GPU. Reply

    Truly, the best of both worlds! Reply

    Good, no hardware integrated spycam you can't disable or know when is on. I taped over mine. Wish more companies would offer laptop models without webcams. You can always clip on on top separately if you need it. Reply

    Agreed, I would also prefer a laptop without a builtin webcam as you get guaranteed privacy and better camera quality with an external webcam. Reply

    Were you hoping to game while attending a business meeting? Me too. Reply

    No, but I was hoping to game after my business meeting. Reply
