Asus ROG Strix Scar II

The Asus ROG Strix Scar II takes aim at first person shooter (FPS) gamers, sporting a 144Hz display with a 3ms response time. Other specs include an Intel 8th generation Coffee Lake Core i7 processor, up to 32GB RAM and discrete graphics using Nvidia's GTX 1070. There's also a similar ROG Strix Hero II meant for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) players, with the difference being the keyboard layout -- the Hero II has QWER highlighted instead.
