ROG 12th Gen Intel Gaming Laptops Now in PH!

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

ASUS has UNLEASHED its new ROG 12th Gen Intel gaming laptop lineup! Of course, the new 12th Gen Intel Core processors power all of these laptops. The star of the show is of course its innovative ROG Flow Z13, probably the first gaming tablet that I know. That’s together with new-and-improved models of the ROG Strix SCAR, ROG Zephyrus M16, TUF Dash F15, and TUF Gaming F15/17.

These new 12th Generation Intel Core mobile processors combine Performance cores and Efficient cores to provide scalable multi-threaded performance that works seamlessly with the operating system. Paired with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, you are sure to get the best possible gaming experience even in a laptop form factor.

All of the laptops will also have 4800 MHz DDR5 RAM, PCIe Gen 4 x4, and ROG Intelligent Cooling with Liquid Metal that ensures better sustained performance from the high-end components. Without further ado, here are the laptops they’re launching.

Tablet Form Factor + ROG Gaming Prowess = ROG Flow Z13

ROG 12th Gen Intel gaming laptops - ROG Flow Z13

I didn’t expect ASUS to follow up on the ROG Mothership so soon and in this way! Personally, this is the standout of all of the ROG 12th Gen Intel gaming laptops. The ROG Flow Z13 brings the best of the tablet form factor and the best of PC versatility in one device. It is incredibly light and slim at 1.1kg and 12mm thick but surprisingly packs a lot of punch! Whether you use a mouse, a gamepad, or its touch screen, the Flow Z13 can pretty much accommodate them all.

You can use the ROG Flow Z13 in a lot more ways since it’s a tablet. Whether you prop it up on a side table when in bed or use it like a laptop on your desk, its flexibility is a total plus. That flexibility also allows the Flow Z13 to get in more fresh air than the usual gaming laptop. It doesn’t have the usual hinge from the laptop form factor. Since there’s extra space inside the chassis, this laptop has a wider vapor chamber and larger fans.

One of the Flow Z13’s standout features is its screen cover that also works as a detachable RGB keyboard with 1.7mm of key travel. The device itself has multiple USB ports and a built-in kickstand for added flexibility in terms of what you can use.

Gaming Power and Tablet Portability in One!

The ROG Flow Z13 carries a Full HD 120Hz 13” 16:10 Touchscreen Display with all the bells and whistles you can ask for! There’s support for Dolby Vision, Pantone Validation, and Adaptive Sync with 100% sRGB coverage. No need to worry too much about the screen thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass protection present.

There’s no lack of power in the Flow Z13 with up to a 14-core Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU, an MUX switch, and 5200 MHz of LPDDR5. All that power is housed in a retro-futurist design inspired by the 20th-century Space Race. It helps manifest ROG’s vision for the future of gaming: ultimate portability.

If you need more gaming horsepower and I/O expansion, the Flow Z13 and the updated 2022 Flow X13 are compatible with the XG Mobile family of external GPUs. For those who got the 2021 XG Mobile with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, you can totally use it with the Flow Z13. If you don’t have one yet, there’s a new XG Mobile that comes with an AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT. Regardless of which one you have, those extra USB ports, DisplayPort, HDMI, and Ethernet ports make the XG Mobile a really powerful mobile companion.

ROG Strix SCAR 15/17: A Powerhouse That Doesn’t Hold Back

ROG 12th Gen Intel gaming laptops - ROG Strix SCAR 15 and 17

The new ROG Strix SCAR 15 and 17 aim to take e-sports and triple-A gaming by storm. Both laptops can have up to Intel Core i9-12900H CPU and paired with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU with a 150W max TGP. They also have DDR5 RAM clocked to 4800 MHz and a PCIe Gen 4 x4 SSD to keep up with both the CPU and GPU during those intense gaming sessions.

There’s a dedicated MUX switch that helps reduce latency and further increase performance when gaming. This is possible by creating a more efficient path from the GPU to the display with an average performance boost of 15% when enabled. If you need to save up on precious battery life, you can switch it back to hybrid mode.

Pure Power for Gamers

These ROG Strix SCAR laptops use liquid metal on the CPU for improved heat transfer. Unlike before, ROG used Thermal Grizzly’s Conductonaut Extreme solution which lowers temperatures by up to 15° C compared to traditional thermal pastes. This delivers higher sustained boost clocks and preventing the fans from ramping up as quickly for reduced noise levels.

This year’s Strix SCAR laptops offer a QHD resolution + 240Hz refresh rate display with Dolby Vision and Adaptive-Sync with 100% DCI-P3 color accuracy. That’s a lot of features that strike a balance between clarity and speed. They also have Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio support for better audio immersion. There’s also an HDMI 2.1 port with support for 4K/120Hz or 8K displays, as well as Thunderbolt 4. For those who want to customize their SCAR laptops, Customizable Armor Caps and Keystone 2 are still present.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s basically what we have here with the updated ROG Zephyrus M16. This was the first ROG laptop to fit a 16-inch display inside an ultra-slim 15-inch chassis.

If you think that’s crazy, there’s more! It has Dolby Vision, Adaptive Sync, and Pantone® validation support for that stunning, color-accurate experience that minimizes stuttering and tearing.

Still a Thin and Light Beast!

This year, the Zephyrus M16 now has up to an Intel Core i9-12900H CPU and paired with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU at up to 120W TGP with Dynamic Boost. The Thin-and-Light Beast also carries up to 32GB of DDR5-4800 RAM and a blazing fast 2TB PCIe 4.0 storage. This laptop also has ROG Intelligent Cooling with Liquid Metal for better cooling. It also has great audio with a great 6-speaker setup with Dolby Atmos support. There’s also the addition of the 180° ErgoLift hinge, Built-in IR Webcam with Windows Hello unlock, and Thunderbolt 4.
