Asus has launched its ROG(Republic of Gamers) laptops in its Zephyrus, Strix Scar, and Strix Hero ranges in India. The company has also launched its gaming desktop PC in India. These laptops were first unveiled at MWC 2019 in January. Asus has provided fast 144Hz displays and new 8th Gen ‘Coffee Lake’ Intel Core CPUs across this new lineup, coupled with slim screen borders and thin, light designs with innovative cooling solutions.

The new Asus ROG Strix Scar and Strix Hero models are available in India starting from today and are priced at ₹1,64,990 onwards, the new 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch ROG Zephyrus models, on the other hand, will be available starting from April 11.

The ROG Strix Scar II and ROG Strix Hero II are both priced at ₹1,64,990 and are quite similar when it comes to specifications. Nevertheless, the Scar series is aimed at FPS (first-person shooter) players with a gunmetal lid, red accents, and printed camouflage pattern, while the Hero series is black with a “cyber-text” printed pattern. The similar features on both the models include RGB backlit keyboards with four lighting zones, plus an RGB LED light bar on the front lip and an illuminated ROG logo on the lid. The ROG Scar II features translucent WASD keycaps, while ROG Hero II has the same but for its QWER keys which the company says is to highlight its usefulness in MOBA-style games.
