Discounted below the US$1,500 threshold on Newegg earlier this month, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 16 GB memory and 1 TB SSD storage is now 26% off on Amazon. This discount pushes the US$1,999.99 list price to US$1,499.99, which is also the lowest price in 30 days.

Back in mid-2021, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G533QS with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 visited our labs for an in-depth review. The configuration reviewed was pushed all the way up with 64 GB of memory, a 2 TB SSD, and had a 15.6-inch 165 Hz display, all for a price of US$4,000. Now, Amazon has a 25% discount on the G533QS-DS94 configuration, which has about the same essentials, but a list price of US$1,999 and a discounted one (which is the lowest in 30 days) of just US$1,499.99.

The discounted model features the same processor and video card as the US$4,000 configuration mentioned earlier, but comes with a 15.6-inch IPS 300 Hz display, 16 GB of memory, and a 1 TB SSD. No optical drive is present and the preinstalled operating system is Windows 11. In addition to the refresh rate mentioned above, the FHD display features a 3 ms GtG response time and 100% sRGB color gamut.

Our review of the G533QS has shown that this machine “is a significant upgrade from the G532LWS” and this translates to noticeably improved performance alongside quieter operation, extended autonomy, as well as a completely redesigned keyboard and clickpad.

To make it even a more interesting choice, it should be highlighted that the discounted Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 has a lower resolution than the reviewed configuration, which had a native resolution of 1440p. Given that most existing games run flawlessly at 1080p on its hardware, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 (G533QS-DS94) is now a deal that should be taken seriously by those looking for a gaming laptop that provides top performance without breaking the bank.
