Strix Hero Edition packs a 120Hz display for super smooth visuals, and includes wide-view technology and a color gamut that’s almost equal to 130% sRGB. It also boasts an Aura Sync-enabled desktop-style keyboard that’s made for victory, with N-key rollover and a 20 million key press lifespan for ultimate reliability. Born for the battlefield, Strix Hero Edition raises your game — so you’ll score more wins and rise through the ranks!

DESIGN
FOR TRUE MOBA HEROES
Strix Hero Edition is a weapon for true MOBA heroes — warriors who by reputation fill enemies with fear. That spirit is evident throughout the aggressive design of Strix Hero Edition: monster scales, silver Mayan-inspired patterns, and deep blue accents project your might and serve as a battle cry to strike fear into the enemy. It’s brawny but agile, with a thin 2.4cm profile and overall weight of just 2.6kg. Strix Hero Edition is the sleek, sharp weapon that’s feared by every foe!

 

BE A BEAST
Strix Hero Edition features a monster-inspired design with scales printed across its lid. Silver Mayan-inspired patterns over the scales depict the monster’s eyes and fangs, while deep purple accents provide a mysterious overtone — like a fearless mythical beast looming in the darkness.

ASYMMETRICAL DESIGN THAT DEFIES CONVENTION
The ROG spirit of defying convention is evident in the asymmetrical design of Strix Hero Edition. A distinct slash across the laptop cover represents a hero’s brave advance into battle.

BE FIERCE AND FEARLESS
Strix Hero Edition instills fear in your opponents. A monster’s spine is depicted across the laptop palm rest, and is replicated as a simple single line across the touchpad.

DISPLAY
SEE THE WHOLE PICTURE
Strix Hero Edition gives you a better view of the game world on its 120Hz display with wide-view technology. The high refresh rate decimates lag for smoother gameplay, while 94% NTSC color gamut provides a wider color range that’s almost equal to 130% sRGB in terms of color space covered. The 300cd/m² panel delivers visuals that are up to 20% brighter than low-end IPS panels from competitors. You’ll differentiate enemies easily — no matter how frantic the action. With Strix Hero Edition, you’ll see the whole picture and vanquish your opponents with pinpoint accuracy!

KEYBOARD
KEYBOARD WITH ULTIMATE RELIABILITY
Strix Hero Edition ensures your eyes stay glued to the action, with a brand new desktop-inspired keyboard layout with four hotkeys and four customizable RGB-backlit zones. The ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curve is comfortable to the touch, while 1.8mm travel distance provides tactile, responsive keystrokes. Specially highlighted QWER keys and N-key rollover further boost your precision, and with the action guaranteed for 20 million key presses, victories will just keep on coming!

 

A KEYBOARD MADE FOR GAMING
The new layout follows the design of the best desktop-gaming keyboards. That means the entire keyboard module is now designed for the way your gaming fingers are used to playing, with gaps between the function keys for easier identification, and isolated arrow keys for accurate fingertip control. The Space key has also been extended and reshaped for more comfort and fewer misses — gaining you crucial extra moments with every accurate press!

ULTRA-DURABLE KEYBOARD WITH 20 MILLION KEYSTROKE LIFE SPAN
The keys are extremely durable, with a lifespan of 20 million keystrokes. ROG engineers redesigned the rubber domes, changing their shape and composition to make them even tougher to absorb the punishment and abuse of heated gaming sessions, so you have nothing to worry about. All you have to do is put your head down and advance fearlessly across the map.


HOTKEYS DESIGNED FOR GAMERS
Four isolated hotkeys are placed above the keyboard for easy and fast adjustments during gaming. These hotkeys are carefully spaced to avoid accidental presses, and with unique keycaps for easy identification by touch alone. A full array of F1-F12 secondary function keys have been designed specifically to help keep your concentration on the game, putting useful controls right where you need them.

AURA SYNC
AURA SYNC FOR ULTIMATE PERSONALIZATION
Aura Sync technology gives you the freedom to customize and sync up light effects with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals to give your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. With a full spectrum of colors to choose from, as well as seven different lighting modes that can be accessed via the Aura control panel, Aura Sync technology lets you express your gaming persona, or the feel of the game you’re currently playing.

AUDIO
CLEARER, LOUDER, AND MORE ACCURATE AUDIO
Strix Hero Edition delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio so every action sounds real — all powerfully delivered through two expansive side-firing speakers. Smart-amplifier technology monitors the audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass, so you’ll hear even the most subtle sounds and always be aware of what’s going on!

SOFTWARE
ARMED WITH ROG GAMING CENTER
Summon ROG Gaming Center with a single press of a hotkey to see a comprehensive dashboard with loads of useful information, including both CPU and GPU frequencies and temperatures — and use the control panel to make adjustments in real time. ROG GameFirst, GameVisual, Sonic Studio and Aura Core, as well as XSplit Gamecaster, can also be accessed through ROG Gaming Center. You can even save different game settings and parameters in the cloud so you can access them even when you change laptops. It offers improved compatibility with all ROG software, including software for ROG graphics cards. ROG Gaming Center is even available via the ROG Android or iOS apps, so you can keep all the controls close at hand.

 

THERMAL
STAY COOL IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE
Strix Hero Edition has a specially-designed cooling system that improves airflow and system durability to cope with the demands of intense gaming sessions. It automatically adjusts fan speed to ensure system temperatures stay at the optimum operating window for the CPU and GPU. Intake vents situated above the keyboard and under the chassis improve airflow into the system, while the patented trapezoid-cut lid design allows hot exhaust to flow freely out of the air tunnels at the rear. The two upgraded 12V fans spin much faster than regular 5V fans, boosting airflow and increasing air pressure to improve cooling efficiency. In addition, the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system expels dust particles and dirt to minimize buildup on the heatsink. Debris buildup minimizes the heatsink’s effectiveness, and affects the laptop’s ability to sustain peak performance.

 UPGRADED 12V FANS
Compared to regular 5V fans, the two powerful 12V fans found in Strix Hero Edition spin 20% faster, improve airflow by up to 42.5%, and increase air pressure by up to 92% for a more effective cooling system.

ANTI-DUST COOLING SYSTEM
The Anti-Dust Cooling system is a patented centrifugal fan module with two anti-dust tunnels. It works on the principle of centrifugal force, which acts on any object moving in a circular path, pushing it away from the center from which it is moving. Dust particles and dirt in the fan module are blown along the fan walls, and eventually expelled out of the chassis through the anti-dust tunnels. This prevents buildup on the heatsink fins. Dust accumulation on the heatsink often result in compromised cooling performance. The Anti-Dust Cooling system prolongs the lifespan and increases the stability of the system. Fan noise also decreases since the fans aren’t overworked.

ULTRATHIN FIN DESIGN
The special copper alloy cooling fins used in Strix Hero Edition are just 0.1mm thin — half the thickness of regular fins. Narrower fins allow for more fins to be used in the cooling module; this increases the surface area for heat dissipation by up to 16%, while at the same time reducing air resistance by 7%.

TRAPEZOID-CUT LID
When opened, normal laptop lids block airflow out the back which could, in some instances, cause overheating. The innovative and patented trapezoid-cut avoids this problem, and improves thermal efficiency by up to 27% over traditional designs.

FAN OVERBOOST
While the dynamic fans automatically adjust their speed according to CPU and GPU temperatures, you can select different modes to suit the situation at hand. Overboost is the most aggressive setting, with the fastest fan speed for the cooling required to fully exploit the power of Strix Hero Edition. Silent mode lowers the fan speed, ideal when you’re after some peace and quiet. A single press of the function key (Fn+F5) allows you to quickly and easily regulate fan performance to control noise levels and power consumption; it can also be accessed through ROG Gaming Center.

MULTIPLE COMPONENT COOLING
The unique heat-pipe design cools not only the CPU and GPU independently to avoid thermal throttling, but also keeps chipset power components below 80°C — increasing system reliability and lifespan.

QUICK-ACCESS GAMING CONNECTIONS
Strix Hero Edition features one USB 2.0, and four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, including one with a Type-C™ (USB-C™) connector. In addition, it also has HDMI 1.4 and Mini DisplayPort 1.2 so connecting the latest, greatest gaming peripherals is a cinch.

MAXIMUM BANDWIDTH, MINIMUM ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Strix Hero Edition features the latest 802.11ac 2x2 Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard, with two antennas each for both transmission and reception, for speeds that are up to 1.7Gbps. That’s 2x faster than 802.11ac 2x2 and 12x faster than 802.11b/g/n! The 2x2 wireless configuration provides up to 30% more coverage than the 1x1 configuration. A more reliable and robust wireless connection ensures better gaming experiences. ROG First also ensures ROG routers and ASUS RT-series routers prioritize packets according to the GameFirst V settings in your ROG laptop for faster, more stable connections. Strix Hero Edition even has low-energy Bluetooth® 4.1, enabling you to game longer and more reliably with your Bluetooth peripherals!
