The highlight of the 2024 Strix laptop launches is the ROG Strix SCAR 18, featuring a 18-inch mini-LED panel. Dubbed as the ROG Nebula HDR display, it leverages mini-LED backlighting with over 2000 dimming zones to deliver stellar HDR visuals. The display tops out at 1100 nits peak brightness and also supports Dolby Vision.

According to ASUS, the mini-LED backlighting alongside ROG’s Nebula HDR Engine provides reduced blooming and minimal halo effects even in challenging scenes. This results in incredible image quality, making the ROG Strix SCAR 18 stand out.

The 18-inch size coupled with the 16:10 aspect ratio provides an immersive viewing experience for both gaming and content creation workloads. ASUS is leveraging this cutting-edge display tech for the first time in its 18-inch laptops with the launch of the Strix SCAR 18.
