Reviewers from Expertreviews have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Strix Scar III has a 15.6in FHD IPS display with a refresh rate of 240Hz. It's backed up by an enormous amount of gaming power, thanks to a 9th-generation octa-core Intel Core i9-9880H CPU. A 17.3in model is available too, but the larger screen is limited to a 144Hz refresh rate – which, to be fair, has until very recently been the industry standard for gaming laptops.
