Amazon is now offering the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 i9/16GB/1TB/RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop for $1,699.99 shipped. Normally going for $2,050, this 17% discount, or solid $350 price drop marks a new all-time low price we’ve tracked for this laptop model while being only the third discount to date. Running the previous-generation 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900H 14-core processor and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti graphics, this is one powerhouse of a laptop. You will also make the jump to DDR5 memory with the included 16GB of RAM. You’ll also have 1TB of PCIe Gen4 SSD storage. The 15.6-inch IPS display, while running at a lower 1080p resolution, gives you a 240Hz refresh rate. It is also compatible with Dolby Vision for great colors and Adaptive-Sync technology to make your game feel smooth with no tearing. You will have the benefit of I/O expansion with Thunderbolt 4 and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet. Keep reading for more.
On a tighter budget? Check out the Acer Nitro 5 i7/8GB/512GB/RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop for $809 instead. Here you’ll be using the 11th gen Intel i7 processor with RTX 3050 Ti graphics, which is a step down from the 3070 Ti present with the option above. The screen is the same size at 15.6 inches but is a step down to 1080p 144Hz resolution and refresh rate. 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. Wi-Fi 6 support is also present here. One unique feature of the Nitro 5 that isn’t in many laptops is the Alexa Show Mode which allows you to use the machine as a Show-like device when you’re not busy playing games.
