The IPS-level panel delivers 100% sRGB gamut, providing consistent light intensity, improved contrast, color accuracy and fidelity. 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. Strix Hero Edition’s display also enables viewing at extreme angles of up to 178° vertically and horizontally.

Quicker, Cleaner Keystrokes
Strix Hero Edition keeps your fingers fixed on the action, with a brand-new keyboard layout that accurately mimics desktop designs, featuring four hotkeys and four customizable RGB-backlit zones. The ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curve is comfortable to the touch, and the 1.8mm travel distance with ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology enables earlier actuation and a longer over-stroke distance — for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes to up your actions per minute. 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!
Thumpingly Loud 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. ROG’s Sonic Studio III even offers in-game noise cancelation and voice-volume stabilization, so you’ll hear even the quietest sounds and keep your attention on the game!
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, voltages and temperatures — and use the control panel to make adjustments in real time. ROG GameFirst, Aura Core, as well as and XSplit Gamecaster can also be accessed through the Gaming Center. Gaming Center is even available as an Android app via the Google Play Store, so you can keep all the controls close to hand.
Stay Cool in the Heat of Battle
Strix Hero Edition has an intelligent thermal design that employs heat pipes and dual fans to automatically adjust the cooling system for optimized CPU and GPU performance. The specially-crafted venting holes above the keyboard and in the bottom of the laptop allow more intake of cool air. The upgraded 12V fans, which spin at higher speeds compared to traditional 5V blades, drive strong airflow to boost cooling efficiency, so you’re free to run the CPU and GPU at full speed without thermal throttling. An additional fan-boost function further increases cooling performance and guarantees total stability during even the most intense fights — so you’ll keep a cool head even in heated battles!
