Introducing the 8th-Gen ROG Strix Hero Edition
The new ROG Strix Hero Edition is built for the next generation of gamers looking to take their game to the next level thanks to up to an 8th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor, GTX graphics, and a high refresh rate gaming display. The 8th-Generation Hero Edition brings several refinements to the series, including an AURA SYNC RGB keyboard and 12V fans for improved thermal performance.
High Refresh Rate Gaming Display
A hallmark of the Strix Hero Edition Series is its high refresh rate 120Hz displays. Higher refresh rate displays deliver a multitude more frames within the same amount of time compared to standard 60Hz displays. For many gamers, the difference of going from 60Hz to 120Hz is far more impactful than switching to a higher screen resolution. High refresh rates result in smoother playback, allowing you to gain a competitive advantage in fast-paced MOBA games.
8th-Generation Intel Core Processors
Enjoy a vast leap in gaming and productivity performance with Intel 8th-Gen Core processors with up to 6 cores and 12 threads (Core i7 model). This gives you a boost in performance over previous generation quad-core processors by 23%.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series
The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics architecture offers the highest possible gaming performance, new gaming technologies, and unmatched VR experiences.
How Anti-Dust Cooling Works
An exclusive design forces dust and debris to exit the chassis through the fan module’s two anti-dust tunnels. This prevents the thermal fins from becoming caked in grime. Compared to regular 5V fans, two powerful 12V fans have up to 20% higher fan speeds and deliver up to 42.5% more airflow.
Durable Gaming Keyboard with N-Key Rollover
The Strix Hero Edition’s ergonomic gaming keyboard is built to withstand the action, with 20-million keystroke durability and N-Key Rollover. Its 1.8mm key travel distance provides a tactile feeling for precise control.
AURA SYNC RGB-Enabled
Customize the Hero Edition’s RGB keyboard with 4 zones of lighting control and choose from different lighting patterns. Synchronize lighting effects with other ASUS AURA SYNC enabled peripherals.
