Asus unveils the ROG Strix SCAR 17 Special Edition: performance first

Asus renews its ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE with the latest components and a better cooling system to bet even more on in-game performance.

This is the case of Asus which unveils the brand new ROG Strix Scar 17 SE 2022, a few months after the launch of the Scar 15 2022.
