Every year, the world’s leading consumer electronics companies gather in Las Vegas for one of the biggest annual events in the industry: CES. It’s an exciting event where media and industry insiders can come to learn about our latest and most innovative products.

We’re more than a little competitive here at ASUS, so we love the CES Innovation Awards. These hotly-contested awards honor the best of the best—products that demonstrate the highest-quality engineering and design in the industry.

We’re proud to announce that so far, nine of our latest products have been named Innovation Awards Honorees ahead of the show. Representing the ingenuity of the engineering and design teams across our company, these products showcase all of the innovative technologies that we put in the hands of creators, gamers, and producers the world over.

Bringing our A game to the notebook market

We’ve been innovating in the laptop space since—well, ever since there was a laptop space to innovate in. We’ve led the way with our high-end gaming laptops, ultraportable notebooks, and professional-grade content creation laptops. We’re not resting on our laurels, though. Our latest laptops bring new features that allow users to get the most of their systems whether they’re at a desk, relaxing on a sofa, or out on the road.

ur first Innovation Award Honoree notebook, the ROG Strix SCAR III, sports an ultrafast display in a machine that’s ready for esports dominance. Mere milliseconds separate winners from losers these days, so competitive gamers demand high-refresh-rate displays that deliver the speed, precision, and responsiveness they need to come out on top. The Strix SCAR III’s upcoming 300Hz panel provides the smooth, responsive visuals those gamers need to perform at their best. In fact, it’s the fastest display gamers can get their hands on right now, period.

It takes carefully selected graphics settings and a tightly-tuned machine to game at 300 frames per second or more in today’s most popular esports titles. The ROG Strix SCAR III is ready to make the most of its blisteringly fast display in those titles thanks to Intel’s Core i9-9880H CPU and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 GPU, a potent pairing that can not only deliver high-refresh-rate gaming but also the latest ray-traced effects.

To keep these components performing optimally even when the action gets hot, our engineers outfitted the Strix SCAR III with our latest Intelligent Cooling technologies. High-density 83-blade fans draw air through a specially designed 3D Flow Zone at the back of the laptop, while anti-dust tunnels channel dust particles out of the chassis before they can affect the fans’ performance over time.

Gamers aren’t the only folks who can get a special edge from our notebooks. The ZenBook Pro Duo offers creators an incredible leg up in productivity, and on first glance, you’ll understand right away why it’s an Innovation Awards Honoree. It features the ScreenPad Plus, a full-width secondary touchscreen that works seamlessly with the main 15.6-inch 4K OLED HDR touchscreen.
