RANGEBOOST FOR ZERO-DEAD-SPOT WI-FI CONNECTION
ROG Strix gaming laptops are the first in the world to feature multi-antenna Wi-Fi for up to 30% more3 range, higher throughput, and fewer connection drops. Patented ROG RangeBoost technology combines four antennas located at the back and front of the machine with a unique algorithm that constantly scans the environment and selects the best pair of antennas to cover each other’s dead spots, resulting in the strongest possible signal. The latest Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) Gigabit Wi-Fi pushes peak wireless bandwidth up to 1.7Gbps — twice that of typical 802.11ac and 12x that of 802.11b/g/n!

Exclusive ROG Overstroke technology enables earlier key actuation and a longer overstroke distance for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes that increase your actions per minute. N-key rollover technology ensures multiple simultaneous keystrokes are instantly logged, while anti-ghosting ensures no false commands are registered — so you’re in full control when precision is needed.
