Here's a series of ASUS's most innovative ROG laptops.
1. ROG Flow X13
ROG Flow X13 is the latest innovative gaming laptop powered by processors up to AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics chip. Thanks to the very efficient combination of CPU and GPU, ROG Flow X13 is able to accompany users up to 10 hours on battery life.
Not only that, the ROG Flow X13 is a gaming laptop that is compact, lightweight and highly portable, and is equipped with a USB Power Delivery feature that allows charging via a special 100W USB Type-C adapter.
Thanks to this adapter, ROG Flow X13 can be recharged from 0% to 60% in just 39 minutes.
Unlike other gaming laptops, ROG Flow X13 carries a convertible design that allows the screen to be rotated up to 360 degrees.
Thus, ROG Flow X13 can also appear as a multifunctional laptop. The screen uses touchscreen technology with the option of a 120Hz FHD fast panel or a high-resolution 4K panel.
Both panel options are protected by Corning Gorilla glass and support the use of a stylus. The ROG Flow X13 screen also supports Adaptive Sync technology and has the PANTONE Validated certification so that the accuracy and level of color reproduction is guaranteed and can be relied on as a laptop for content creation.
Two down-firing speakers also complement the ROG Flow X13. These speakers are powered by Dolby Atmos technology which is able to provide a better audio experience not only for playing games but also for other multimedia activities.
Not only that, ROG Flow X13 is also equipped with a Two-Way AI Noise-Cancellation feature that offers a better communication process when playing games or even working.
The cooling system on ROG Flow X13 has been specially designed and optimized to bring high performance to an extremely compact laptop body.
Apart from using liquid metal as its thermal compound, ROG Flow X13 is also equipped with three special heatsinks that can release heat more optimally.
The cooling system is supported by the new Arc Flow fan which is able to flow 15% better air than standard fans with the same noise level.
To ensure seamless use for long periods of time, the ROG Flow X13 is equipped with a self-cleaning thermal module that allows dust and particles that could potentially clog the cooling system to be discharged through a special tunnel integrated with the main cooling module in ROG Flow X13.
ROG Flow X13 is the world's first gaming laptop to support ROG XG Mobile, an external GPU device powered by a graphics chip up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
When connected to ROG XG Mobile, ROG Flow X13 becomes a laptop with very fast graphics performance.
Unlike other external GPUs that rely on Thunderbolt connectivity, ROG XG Mobile uses special connectivity that allows the external GPU to have an independent 8x PCIe connection lane.
This special connectivity also allows ROG XG Mobile to get bandwidth up to 63Gbps exclusively without having to share it with other components.
This makes ROG XG Mobile present almost without causing performance cuts when connected to ROG Flow X13.
Not only acting as an external GPU, ROG XG Mobile is also equipped with a series of I / O to enrich the user experience.
ROG XG Mobile is also equipped with an integrated adapter with 280W power which can also function as an adapter for ROG Flow X13.
ROG XG Mobile is the perfect enhancement for ROG Flow X13 users who want the best graphics performance for gaming and content creation.
2. ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE
As the name implies, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is a laptop with ScreenPad Plus which is an integrated second screen equipped with many functions to support productivity and enhance the gaming experience.
ScreenPad Plus isn't just a second screen for the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE. The screen with the touchscreen feature can be used for various scenarios such as controlling live streaming applications, or even viewing walkthroughs and guides while playing games on the main screen.
For content creators, the ScreenPad Plus on the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE can be used as a canvas or even an additional control tool thanks to its direct integration support feature with Adobe creative applications.
This time, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is powered by the latest processors, namely up to AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and graphics chips up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.
The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE also comes in two screen options, namely with a 360Hz FHD panel that has a 100% sRGB color gamut or a 4K 120Hz panel that has a 100% Adobe RGB color gamut.
Both panel options are PANTONE Validated certification to ensure a high level of color accuracy.
The ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE relies on the updated Active Aerodynamic System Plus (AAS +) as its cooling system.
AAS + makes the ScreenPad Plus part of this laptop raised so that it can provide a wider air cavity for the cooling system.
This time, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is equipped with an Arc Flow fan that can provide up to 13% better airflow.
Not only that, the use of a new cooling module with five heatpipes and the use of liquid metal as a thermal compound make the cooling performance of the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE even better than the previous generation.
3.ROG Strix SCAR 17
Continuing the tradition of its predecessors, the latest ROG Strix SCAR is back as a gaming laptop with uncompromising performance.
Apart from being equipped with a processor up to AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics chip, ROG Strix SCAR 17 can now carry DDR4 3200MHz memory with a capacity of up to 64GB and comes with a new, better cooling module.
Designed as the machine for esports gamers, ROG Strix SCAR 17 comes with the fastest screen in its class, which is an FHD resolution that has a refresh rate of up to 360Hz and a response time of 3ms.

The use of an optical mechanical keyboard in the latest ROG Strix SCAR 17 makes this laptop even more reliable for gaming.
The per-key RGB keyboard not only has a deeper key travel, which is 1.9mm, but is also very responsive. On the other hand, the trackpad which is 85% larger makes this laptop comfortable to use even without a mouse.
The new ROG Strix SCAR 17 has dimensions that are more compact than its predecessor. The new design now features RGB light bars on the front and front corners, as well as at the bottom of the screen.
In the corner of the body of the latest ROG Strix SCAR 17 are hinge caps that can be exchanged like on professional sports equipment.
