Game, stream, create
The SCAR series is built from the ground up for gamers - and, of course, game developers. The Strix SCAR 18 can run all game engines, enabling you to unlock your creativity and try your hand at making the next great game. Whether you're a digital artist, streamer, video editor, or dabble with animation and game development, the Strix SCAR 18 has all the horsepower you need to take your creations to the next level.
To accommodate such powerful components, the Strix SCAR 18's chassis and motherboard were both redesigned to accommodate a full-width heatsink, while the copper fins were moved even closer to the exhaust vents for more efficient cooling. This unique heatsink is built from three different sections, surrounding the motherboard with densely packed fins for a total surface area of 195509 mm². This design maximizes the available pathing for hot air to escape the machine and drastically increases overall cooling.
For gamers who demand the absolute best motion and image clarity, the SCAR 18 offers an incredible Nebula display with a 240 Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and a staggering 500 nits brightness for stunning gameplay. The 18-inch, 16:10 aspect ratio QHD panel provides staggeringly deep blacks for content that jumps right off the screen, whether you're watching a movie or playing a fast-moving arena shooter.
TÜV Rheinland certification
Nebula Displays are TÜV Rheinland certified, ensuring they are low blue light compliant and flicker-free, preventing eyestrain during long gaming or content creation sessions.
Dolby Vision technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision makes media look better. The technology improves on standard 4K high dynamic range (HDR) video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.
100% DCI-P3 color coverage
Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut for more vibrant images, letting you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be experienced.
