Last Wednesday we went to ASUS’ headquarters in Ortigas to test two RTX machines: The ROG GL12CX gaming desktop and the ROG GL704GW STRIX SCAR II gaming laptop.
We spent half a day trying to get some games up and running. After all, we had all that power right in front of us.
We desperately wanted to get at least one game to work – we really wanted to run benchmarks on an RTX-enabled game like Battlefield V or Shadow of the Tomb Raider, however, due to firewall restrictions we were unable to actually play anything.
We did manage to capture some benchmarks, though. Thankfully, I had purchased Port Royal earlier, and was able to download it on the SCAR II.
Here are the benchmark test results:
ROG GL704GW STRIX SCAR II i7-8750H 16GB DDR4 GeForce RTX 2070 (1920×1080)
- Port Royal: 4029 points, 18.65 FPS
- Time Spy overall score: 7136 points
- Time Spy graphics score: 7495 points, 49.12 FPS (test 1), 42.76 FPS (test 2)
- Time Spy CPU score: 5713 points, 18.86 FPS
ROG GL12CX i9-9900K 32GB DDR4 GeForce RTX 2080 (3440×1400)

Both the ROG GL12CX and the ROG GL704GW are currently available at ASUS concept stores nationwide.
