Amazon is now offering the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 Ryzen 9/16GB/1TB/RTX 3080 Gaming Laptop for $1,669.99 shipped. Normally going for $2,000, this solid $330 price drop marks a new all-time low price we’ve tracked for this laptop. Today’s deal beats the previous low price we tracked by $30. The ROG Strix Scar will come powered by its Ryzen 9 5900HX octa-core processor and RTX 3080 graphics to drive the 15.6-inch 1080p 300Hz IPS type display that itself covers 100% of the sRGB color space. Combined with the 16GB of RAM, this laptop will be able to fully utilize the display in most games at high graphical settings. Wi-Fi 6, Dolby Atmos support, a single USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, three USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and HDMI output round out this gaming machine. Head below for more.

If you’d like to save some cash, you can check out the Acer Nitro 5 i7/8GB/512GB/RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop for $812. Here you’ll be using the 11th gen Intel i7 processor with RTX 3050 Ti graphics, which are all downgrades over the laptop above. You’ll also have a 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz display which will see plenty of use in most games with some more demanding titles requiring slightly lower graphics settings. The total amount of RAM available here is also cut in half to 8GB though that is still plenty for most modern games to run well.
