    Do not buy this. The software ASUS has to manage CPU, GPU profiles, and all the RGB lighting fails after windows update!!! Forget trying to reinstall either windows won't let you. This is because the ASUS security certificate for Armoury Crate won't work. Huge disappointment. DO NOT BUY!!!!!

    My 2012 Thinkpad W530 has a 119.98Hz Matte Display. I am not a gamer, so I use it at 60Hz, but it is nice to know this laptop is still up to date.

  • William Shreckengost

    A few months late, but they totally did address the wibbly display in at least some of the TUF 505 stuff. Specs are probably a little less ROGgy, but the top o' the bottom's designed almost the same, and they have a well-placed slab of heavy-duty aluminum foil on the top o' the top to make the display more rigid.

  • Ayden

    Yea.. it’s a very cool display... but what’s the point of 240 refresh rate when all you can play with that much fps is Runescape.

    • Ayden
      Ayden Month ago

      I know RTX 2080 is a very powerful graphics card but a single mobile graphics card in a laptop is nowhere powerful enough to play any modern AAA title games in 240 fps.

    Well its quite the opposite, the further away from a screen you stay you can’t tell the difference between 4k and Full HD. To actually see the pixels, you need to get closer to the screen. On big screen TV’s nobody watches them from a 2 ft distance that you can tell the difference in resolution.

    I'm going to university for game development and i need a new laptop but i can't decide what to buy. I'm struggling between these 3 laptops. The ROG Strix GL703, The ROG ZEPHYRUS S (GX701) and lastly the ROG Strix SCAR II GL704GW. Keep in mind it's for game development and it needs to go at least 5 years without problems. It also has to be able to play some triple A games.

    Who in their right mind will drop 3K- 6K on a new gaming laptop in 2019 without HDMI 2.1? Those new LG C9 and E9 TVs are so awesome with 4k@120 Hz. It is such a shame not being able to connect new laptops to one of those TVs and game through HDMI 2.1 at 4K@120 FPS

  • D Graves
    D Graves 5 months ago

    I don't understand the point of a 240hz display if the graphics can't push 240 FPS. Why not go with a 144hz display with the 2080 MaxQ. My 1080 Ti can barely push out 144 FPS, usually between 90 and 144 FPS depending on the game, at 1440p in more recent titles. I'd imagine that an RTX 2080 MaxQ paired with a 144hz display would be the sweet spot, and would likely be cheaper. Or am I just completely wrong? Waht would be the benefits aside from just a smooth desktop experience?
