ROG Strix Hero II As it’s predecessor, the ROG Strix Hero II (GL504), is designed for a wider audience with an addition to it’s already classic design of having subtler styling. As the complete opposite of the more aggressively designed Scar II, the WASD are not highlighted, but instead the QWER keys have an extra glow.

Similarly to the Scar II, the Hero II also comes with the Nvidia Optimus technology that helps in power conservation by only activating the discrete GPU when needed. Both the Hero II and Scar II will have the 2070 configurations aside from the RTX 2060 ones.
