But let’s start with something general which is applicable to almost all of the new machines for this post which is the ROG Nebula Display – their in-house IPS panel touted to produce colors and brightness that can rival the qualities of OLED screens and the premium version ROG Nebula Display HDR.

As its name suggests, the HDR version of the Nebula Display is designed to provide the best HDR gaming and visual content experience as it is certified for DisplayHDR1000 and can go as bright as 1100 nits with up to 1024 local dimming zones for maximum uniformity across each part of the screen.

All right. Let’s start off the products with the Strix series comprising of the SCAR and G lineups designed for performance as the top priority. The main upgrade blessed towards both of them is a better screen that is larger and better as in 16:10 aspect ratio within 16-inch. Aesthetic-wise, they are further improved with more RGB via an LED strip on the back alongside the iconic illuminated logo.
