RTX 3080-powered gaming laptops are getting considerable price cuts now that their more powerful but often sinfully expensive predecessors are slowly hitting the market. This also applies to sought-after 15-inch machines like the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15, which has now received its largest discount to date at a reputable online retailer.
This time round, Newegg is offering the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 configuration with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor and the aforementioned Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with a TGP of 130 watts for US$1,449 including free shipping. This constitutes a massive 34 percent or US$750 discount relative to the MSRP. The gaming laptop is further equipped with 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB NVMe SSD and a very fast FHD IPS display with a native refresh rate of 300Hz. This offer for the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 undercuts a quite popular Amazon deal from last month by another US$250.
For detailed information on the strengths and weaknesses of this 15-inch gaming laptop, please refer to our written and video review of a slightly different configuration of the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15. For example, we praised the easily accessible RAM and M.2 slots and the clicky keyboard, but unfortunately, this particular configuration of the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 doesn’t sport the beautiful 165Hz 1440p display that we enjoyed very much during our test run. Nevertheless, for gamers who are looking for a well-performing RTX 3080 gaming laptop with a superfast 300Hz display, this deal might a good pick.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
