Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 (G733) Review
Asus’s ROG Strix Scar 17 nails what a high-end gaming laptop should be. It has performance in abundance, thanks to its Intel “Alder Lake” Core i9 CPU, DDR5 memory, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Ti graphics. It also surprises with all-day battery life and quiet fans, and it excels just about everywhere else

I'm looking to get a gaming laptop in the coming months
Asus is making some new laptops with the new AMD and Nvidia products coming out in February. For you, I would recommend the Strix Scar 17(or 15 I don't remember). It will have the best specs you can get in a laptop, and will be able to run most games at 2k resolution. The laptop also has a display option for 2k 144(or 165).
ASUS Strix G17 vs. MSI GE76 Raider?
If you need 32 gigs, just upgrade it later on. However, the Strix Scar, like the Strix G17 lacks a MUX Switch which means games are bottlenecked by Optimus when gaming on the laptop’s display. This reduces the potential performance of these laptops by as much as 7% in FPS in AAA games (versus using an external monitor connected to the USB-C display port).

Sorry folks, another laptop recommendation request
Had a 2080 desktop and had to start traveling so I got myself a 2021 Asus ROG Strix Scar G17 with a QHD display and a 3080. The performance is pretty similar to that 2080 and it's a somewhat light machine (not slim and light but light enough that my back does not hurt while carrying it around) and it's great for both gaming and work. The 17" QHD display for this laptop is really good and I was really surprised on it's quality, I always disliked small displays (and 17" is pretty small for me) but I was really surprised when I used it and I didn't feel it as been small.

Strix Scar 17? Or just Strix 17?
I would say yes - invest in a tray, they are bulkier than you think
Got the “unreleased” legion 5 pro today! I am looking forward to testing it :) screen is awesome!
I also have the Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 with 5900hx + rtx 3080 as my main gaming laptop. I wish Dell or Lenovo would come out with some good premium laptops with the 5900hx or hs such as XPS 17 etc. But until then this one is perfect with the keyboard set to a neutral color.
Should I get the Asus Rog Strix Scar 17 or the Alienware m17 R4 or the Alienware x17?
however, the scar 17 doesnt have a mux switch so this severely damages its performance in high fps games such as valorant or CSGO. id rather get the alienwares if i were you, but do note their battery life is WAYYYY worse (1-1.5 hr vs 7-8).
I was expecting the Scar 17 with the Max-P 3080 to just about comfortably crush every game at 1440p (at least with DLSS), but the performance numbers so far seem really pretty disappointing to me. For the $2800 I spent on it I just don't think the performance is there. Hopefully later this year we'll see higher TDP machines or maybe I'll have to wait for the Super models, or even another 2 years for the 4080.
