The new ROG Strix Hero Edition is built for the next generation of gamers looking to take their game to the next level thanks to up to an 8th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor, GTX graphics, and a high refresh rate gaming display. The 8th-Generation Hero Edition brings several refinements to the series, including an AURA SYNC RGB keyboard and 12V fans with Anti-Dust Cooling for improved thermal performance.

A hallmark of the Strix Hero Edition Series is its high refresh rate 120Hz displays. Higher refresh rate displays deliver a multitude more frames within the same amount of time compared to standard 60Hz displays. For many gamers, the difference of going from 60Hz to 120Hz is far more impactful than switching to a higher screen resolution. High refresh rates result in smoother playback, allowing you to gain a competitive advantage in fast-paced MOBA games.

  • 8th-Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor. 6 cores, up to 3.9GHz (Boost clock)
  • Powerful gaming performance with GTX 1050 Ti 4GB graphics
  • 120Hz 15.6" Full HD display. Ultra-fast 3ms response time
