ASUS RoG Zephyrus DUO 16 and ROG Strix Scar: with gaming as the flag

The presence of ASUS at CES 2022 has not gone unnoticed by anyone, and the manufacturer has come up with a proposal, in which we can see that gaming and high performance have great weight. We have already told you about many of the options of its ROG (Republic Of Gamers) and TUF families, as well as the ASUS ROG NR2201 gaming tablet, a device with a performance that has nothing to envy to many gaming laptops.

And we still have to count, with such interesting proposals as the ROG Zephyrus DUO 16 and the ROG Strix Scar, which also has a 17-inch special edition with the necessary components to offer exceptional performance.


Back in October 2020, we had the opportunity to test the Rog Zephyrus DUO 15, a surprise proposal in a premium laptop, with high-end components and that stood out, without a doubt, for its dual-screen configuration. And today his relief has come with the ASUS ROG Zephyrus DUO 16, which updates its selection of components to continue offering a top-of-the-range option, which will satisfy not only gamers but also content creators and other users who need great performance.

The main change with respect to its predecessor is found in its engine, and that is that ASUS in this generation has changed Intel for AMD to reach a Ryzen 9 6980HX, the top of the range of the APUs presented today by AMD, with its eight cores and 16 threads, speed up to 5 gigahertz and suitable for overclocking.

Regarding its graphic section, the Zephyrus DUO 16 does not fall short either, as ASUS has opted for another novelty that has also been presented today, the highly anticipated GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Mobile, NVIDIA’s top-of-the-range proposal for laptops. at this time. The bundle is supported by 64 gigabytes of 4,800 megahertz DDR5 memory and up to four terabytes of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage in raid 0.


Another of its most notable novelties is found on the model’s screen with Dual-Spec Panel technology, which offers a really very interesting function, and is that it allows you to switch between two modes: 4K with a refresh rate of 120 hertz and FullHD, in which case the refresh rate goes up to 240 hertz. In this way, we can always choose the way that interests us the most for what we are doing at that time.

Here we also find an update, with which a family that we have already tried in the past takes a leap to adopt the most current components and, in this way, remains one of the best options on the market in terms of performance. And it has undoubtedly succeeded, since some of its novelties, as in the case of the Zephyrus DUO 16, have also been presented today.

In versions of 15.6 and 17.3 inches, the two most significant leaps are the adoption of Alder Lake-H, the 12th generation processor for notebooks presented this afternoon by Intel, and that in the ASUS ROG Strix Scar can reach be up to a Core i9-12900H. As you may have already deduced, from the hand of these new processors we will also find the support of the most important novelties of the twelfth generation for laptops, such as DDR5 memory support, WiFi 6, and Thunderbolt 4.

The other great novelty that we will find in this generation of the ASUS ROG Strix Scar has to do with its graphic section and is that as we have already seen in the Zephyrus DUO 16, the top of the range will now offer us an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 380 GPU Mobile. The suite comes complete with up to 64 gigabytes of DDR5 memory and up to 2 terabytes of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage.

As for its screen options, we can for 2,560 × 1,440 with a refresh rate of 240 hertz, or 1,920 x 1,080, and a refresh rate of 360 hertz.

To further squeeze the performance of its components, ASUS proposes a special edition of the 17-inch version, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17 SE, which for this purpose has a vapor chamber heat dissipation system, which is integrated with the rest of the dissipation functions that we find in the rest of the models.

As you can see, ASUS ‘proposal at this CES 2022 has been more than outstanding, and without a doubt we are already waiting for the arrival of all these devices to the market, to be able to start testing them.
