ASUS has recently unveiled their new line up of ROG Strix series of laptops. These are the ultimate gaming machines as they come with the latest and the greatest high end spec sheet. You get the new AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile CPUs and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. 

So we are going to look at the 3 models in the ROG Strix Scar series of laptops in our list for the Best laptops with RTX 3080 in India. But first let’s talk about what are the usual set of features that you will be getting with these laptops.

The laptop comes with a matte black lid with a semi transparent shell. The keyboard is a chiclet style keyboard with per key RGBl, the trackpad is wide and comfortable to use and doubles as a number pad. You get some extra set of keys to activate performance mode or the ROG crate. You also have an RGB light bar on the sides as well as a ROG logo.

You get dual 4W speakers that have a good bass but sound tinny and mushed. For connectivity, you have Wifi 6, gigabit ethernet and Bluetooth 5.1. As for thermals, the laptop comes with 6 copper pipes, 4 fan outlets and dual fans which are under the WASD keys and near the arrow keys so you don’t feel uncomfortable warming while enjoying your games. Although the fans manage to keep the noise low, you can still expect heating and throttling on demanding games.

3. ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 (Ryzen 7 QHD)

Rating: 9.3/10

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 Ryzen 7 Octa Core 5800H Laptop

Check Cheapest Price : Amazon

Display15.6 inch QHD Anti Glare 165Hz IPS display
ProcessorAMD Ryzen 7 5800H 8 cores 16 threads processor @3.2Ghz ~ 4.4Ghz
RAM16GB RAM (Expandable to 64GB)
Storage capacity1TB SSD (Expansion slot for SSD)
GraphicsNvidia RTX 3080 with 16GB VRAM
Weight2.3kg
Battery Capacity90Whr battery with Fast charging
Release DateMarch 2021

Pros:

  • Gorgeous 1440p Quad HD display
  • Display has vivid and sharp colors with deep and detailed blacks
  • 165Hz refresh rate 3ms G2G response time
  • Comes with the powerful Ryzen 7 5800H processor

Cons:

  • Battery life takes a hit due the QHD display
  • Refresh rate goes down from 300Hz to 165Hz
  • Heats up after prolonged intensive usage

This comes with a 1440p display. You do compromise on the higher refresh rate as it gets chopped by almost by half at 165Hz down from 300Hz but it’s very unlikely you will be able to take advantage of that high FPS if you play on 1440p resolution. But other than that, the internals should be more than enough for 1440p gaming. The battery life takes a hit due the QHD resolution but you do get fast charging that should get it to 50% in 30 minutes. Since the price is similar to the Full HD variant, this is our preferred choice.
