BRAVERY KNOWS NO BOUNDS
Hot on the heels of its groundbreaking predecessor, ROG Strix Hero II brings you even more power and style for MOBA esports gaming. We’ve upgraded its design with a super-narrow bezel that gives the laptop a solid, more compact look, and the ultrafast IPS-level display with its 144Hz refresh rate and 100% sRGB color gamut delivers the smoothest, most vivid visuals so you can easily differentiate friends and foes. A desktop-grade keyboard with a 20-million-keystroke lifespan — twice the industry standard — provides unmatched reliability, while the patented RangeBoost multi-antenna system guarantees ultra-reliable, wider-ranging Wi-Fi coverage. This Windows 10 Pro gaming laptop incorporates a HyperCool Pro thermal system for the extreme cooling performance required to get the most out of its 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 graphics card. Strix Hero II has raised its game, so you can raise yours!
ULTRA-RESPONSIVE NARROW-BEZEL DISPLAY
To give you the maximum advantage in combat, Strix Hero II features the world’s first 144Hz super-narrow-bezel display with a 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time — a must-have for hardcore gamers and esports players. The extremely high refresh rate ensures a true 144fps experience with minimal input lag, while the superfast response time reduces ghosting and motion blur to yield clearer visuals. The new design also results in less distracting frame, allowing for a more compact body that’s 2.33cm narrower than its predecessor. Strix Hero II is lighter, too, with an overall weight of just 2.4kg that maximizes your agility so you can take the fight with you, wherever you go!
LIGHT IT UP WITH AURA LIGHTING
Dim the lights, and watch Aura lighting take center stage. The ROG logo on the lid, the front light bar, transparent QWER keycaps and semi-transparent key sides allow Aura to shine brighter than ever before. Together, they add up to show off your own unique style.
EPIC COMPUTING POWER
Strix Hero II gives you the performance to overpower your opponents: it’s powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 six-core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. Storage isn’t an issue, with up to a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB Seagate® FireCuda™ SSHD. Whichever way you specify your Strix Hero II, you’re well on your way to becoming a legend.

STAY COOL IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE
The HyperCool Pro thermal system has a host of features to help Strix Hero II get the most out of its high-performance GPU and CPU. There’s an extended cooling plate to spread heat evenly, and two high-performance 12V fans that deliver stronger airflow and increase air pressure to ensure a stable system even under heavy loads. HyperCool Pro also includes the patented Anti-Dust Cooling system that expels dust particles and dirt to improve system reliability and durability.

The 300cd/m² panel ensures 20%-brighter visuals compared to low-end IPS panels. With Strix Hero II, you’ll identify enemies easily, no matter how frantic the action.
ACTION-PACKED VIRTUAL REALITY/MIXED REALITY
The VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card puts you right in the middle of the action. Explore immersive worlds in smooth, low-latency, and stutter-free VR. Strix Hero II is also certified by Microsoft for Windows Mixed Reality applications.
* GeForce® GTX 1060 or better is required for smooth VR experiences.
RANGEBOOST FOR ZERO-DEAD-SPOT WI-FI CONNECTION
ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for 30% more range, higher Wi-Fi throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans and selects the best pair of antennas able to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi standard delivers speeds of up to 1.7Gbps — twice that of 802.11ac 2×2 and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!
KEYBOARD WITH HYPERSTRIKE PRO TECHNOLOGY
A revised keyboard with HyperStrike Pro technology puts decisive control at your fingertips. It features a desktop-inspired layout, four hotkeys, customizable RGB backlighting across four zones, a highlighted QWER key group with transparent key caps, and 0.25mm-deep keycap curves for more comfortable typing. Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation and a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. N-key rollover technology ensures multiple simultaneous keystrokes are instantly logged, while anti-ghosting ensures no false commands are registered — so you’re in full control when precision is needed. With a lifespan of 20 million key presses, Hero II has one of the most durable keyboards to be found in a laptop — double that of the current industry standard.
AURA SYNC FOR ULTIMATE PERSONALIZATION
Aura Sync technology gives your entire gaming setup a consistent look and feel. Match the colors of the ROG logo, keyboard, light bar on Strix Hero II with Aura Sync-supported gaming mice, headsets, and other peripherals. The full spectrum of colors and seven different lighting modes can be easily accessed via the Aura control panel.
CLEARER, LOUDER, AND MORE ACCURATE AUDIO
Strix Hero II delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio via powerful side-firing speakers that immerse you in sound. Smart-amplifier technology monitors audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones — and that makes output up to twice as loud as before, with increased dynamic range and bass so you can hear even the most subtle sounds.
ARMED WITH ROG GAMING CENTER
Summon up ROG Gaming Center via the ROG hotkey to view a comprehensive dashboard filled with loads of useful information, including both CPU and GPU frequencies and temperatures — and use the control panel to make adjustments in real time. It gives you access ROG GameFirst, GameVisual, Sonic Studio, Aura Core, and XSplit Gamecaster, and you can even adjust fan settings! Your game preferences and parameters can be saved in the cloud so you can access them even when you change laptops. Download the ROG Gaming Center app to your Android or iOS device so you can keep all the controls close at hand.
* Software and compatibility may vary by product model.
