At CES 2021, ASUS unveiled its latest lineup of ROG gaming laptops, with the highlight being the new ROG Flow X13–a convertible gaming laptop that’s the brand’s most portable to date.
While the Flow X13 is no doubt the highlight, it’s not the only gaming notebook from ASUS. In fact, ASUS revealed several more notebooks, most of which are improvements and refreshes of its existing gaming laptops.
Here’s a quick rundown of all the new gaming laptops from ASUS ROG at CES 2021:
Zephyrus Duo 15
Launched last year, the original Zephryus Duo was an innovative gaming laptop that packed two displays–a 15.6-inch UHD display with G-SYNC and a 14.1-inch 4K IPS ScreenPad Plus touch screen.
Now, ASUS unveiled the latest version of its dual-screen laptop, the Zephyrus Duo 15. The new Duo packs the latest AMD Cezanne R9 processor, a top-end RTX 3080 GPU, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD. The new Zephryus Duo also comes with a 90Wh battery, as well as a wealth of I/O ports.
ROG Strix SCAR 15/17 (G533/733)
Up next, we have the ROG Strix SCAR 15 and 17, the latest in ASUS’ renowned SCAR lineup made for esports enthusiasts. What differentiates the new SCAR laptops from their predecessors is a refreshed design, complete with an improved RGB light bar and interchangeable thermal cover caps.
As for internals, the new Strix SCAR laptops pack up to an AMD Cezanne R9 CPU, up to an RTX 3080 GPU, up to a 1TB Dual SSD, and up to 64GB of RAM. The SCAR laptops can also be configured with a WQHD (165hz/3 ms) display or an FHD 300/360Hz screen.
