Packing 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics in a stylish design with breathtaking RGB illumination, the ASUS ROG Strix Hero II is menacing in both power and look. The 144Hz 3ms Full HD display enables you to enjoy fluid gameplay with no stuttering or tearing. It features multi-antenna RangeBoost Wi-Fi for high-speed wireless connection and NVMe Drive for lightning read/write speed to kill data bottlenecks in all fronts. The durable keyboard unleashes the pro-gamer enthusiasm inside you with optimized layout and quick responsiveness. The ROG Gaming Center makes performance tweaking easy, and lets you always play games in a way you feel comfortable with.
Despite packing a 15.6” display, the Hero II is nearly an inch narrower than its predecessor, making it easier to slip in your bag. ROG has carefully engineered the display for maximum performance in a minimal frame. This ROG-exclusive IPS-type panel design combines a blazing 144Hz refresh rate with a quick 3ms response time. The higher refresh rate enables a true 144-FPS experience with minimal input lag, while the faster response reduces ghosting and blurring to produce a clearer picture.
Dim the lights, and watch AURA RGB lighting take center stage. We’ve amped up the RGB illumination even more with an additional light bar on the front edge and a more imposing ROG logo on the lid. Support for Aura Sync allows you to coordinate colors and effects across the laptop and compatible peripherals. Four fully translucent QWER keycaps make it easier to anchor your hand placement for MOBA games through your peripheral vision, so you don’t need to look down at your keyboard.
The GL504’s integrated 802.11ac Wi-Fi is based on Intel’s latest Wave 2 solution, which is capable of greater than Gigabit speeds. The wireless card is hooked up to four antennas, a first for laptops. Our RangeBoost technology monitors these antennas to determine which ones have the best signal and then switches automatically to ensure that you’re using the best pair for the conditions.
With ultra-fast access times and blistering transfer rates, the Hero II’s ROG HyperDrive PCIe x2 M.2 solid state drive loads games, apps, and other data at warp speeds. This cutting-edge NVMe drive boasts sequential read speeds of up to 3288 MB/s.
