The ROG Strix Hero, on the other hand, is a gaming laptop optimized for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA). Made to be more approachable for wider audiences and different types of player, the ROG Strix Hero has contrasting textures and cyber-text patterns that are more restrained than the design of the SCAR II.

With the ROG Strix Hero, gamers fond of MOBA games can expect smoother performance since the said laptop comes with the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics giving way for higher frame rates. Aside from this, the ROG Strix Hero carries the NVIDIA Optimus to help its battery life and power be conserved efficiently.
