The RGB lights can certainly be synchronized with other devices that dukungan ASUS Aura Sync. Interestingly, this notebook has a bodi desain that in my pandanganon is still leaning towards a low profil even though it has that much RGB.

This may be because ASUS collaborated with the BMW Designworks Kelompok tim to present a kekinian and futuristic desain in ROG Strix Scar III. Therefore it is not surprising that the bodi reminds me of a sports car.

Even this notebook is equipped with a Scissor-Door hinge that has a minimalist footprint and will not appear when the notebook is closed.

Unlike the ROG Hero III, which offers four RGB areas, the keyboard from ROG Strix III has its own RGB light for each key. The keyboard itself feels very comfortable when I use it to model, maybe one of the best gaming notebooks I’ve ever tried.

When compared to the keyboard from the VivoBook S14 which I also really liked in the previous kupasan, I prefer this ROG Strix III keyboard for typing everyday work.

RGB lights from the keyboard also have a variety of preset modes that can be selected through the Armory Crate settings ranging from Static, Breathing, Strobbing, to Riple. To my kejutan, it turns out that there is an animated RGB light when the notebook is in a sleep state and connected to the pengisi daya.

Under the keyboard there is a touchpad which certainly should not be forgotten. The touchpad ruangan provided is wide enough so that your finger can move the kursor more easily. Plus, the touchpad can also be turned into a NumberPad to make it easier to input numbers.

Regarding ports, ROG Strix Scar III is quite complete by offering three USB-A 3.2 (Gen-1) and 3.5mm on the left. As for the HDMI 2.0b, Ethernet, USB-C 3.2 (Gen-2) and power ports located on the back of the notebook.

Not enough there, ASUS also provides one more unique thing on ROG Strix Scar III. On the right side of the notebook there is a unique key called ROG Keystone. This NFC-based key has various uses that gamers can take advantage of.

ROG Keystone can toko settings and presets used in the Armory Crate. By simply entering the ROG Keystone, the settings will be activated immediately, so there is no need to re-set one by one.

In addition, the ROG Keystone can also be used as a key to activate Shadow Drive. As the name implies, a new Shadow Drive will appear when the lock is attached and will automatically disappear when the lock is removed. This spesifikasi will definitely be very useful if you have confidential data that no one should see.
