Product Overview

ASUS ROG Strix G17 G712 is a 17.3-inch gaming laptop sitting at the entry-level of ROG's 2020 lineup. It is available with up to Intel i7-10750H CPU with NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER graphics.
Much like its bigger brother, the SCAR 17, the G17 G712 comes in a compact chassis. However, as a tuned-down version, the G17 has more limited RGB lighting and drops support for the 300Hz display. Nevertheless, the 240Hz / 3ms panel compares well in 2020 against models available from the competition. The ROG Strix G17 can be configured with up to 32GB DDR4-3200MHz memories and dual M.2 SSD running in RAID0. WiFi 6 is also newly available.
For those who wish more portability, ASUS also offers the ROG Strix G15 that shares much of the same features with the G17: it can further be configured with more modest Core i5 CPU, and GTX 1650 Ti graphics.
For a more performance in basically the same chassis, ASUS markets the ROG Strix SCAR 15 and SCAR 17. The ROG Zephyrus S15 and S17 are ultra-portable options that do not sacrifice on performance. The Zephyrus M15 is a tuned-down version of the Zephyrus S15. The flagship this year is the Zephyrus Duo 15 that comes with dual 4K displays.
ASUS also markets AMD-powered Zephyrus G14 and G15 for those that prefer the red team.
