The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards are built on the Turing architecture. Combining traditional CUDA cores with RT and Tensor cores for ray-tracing and AI, these cards offer more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in real-time.
Keystone
A Keystone is a physical NFC-enabled key used to personalize your machine and protect your personal data. When plugged-in, it can automatically switch your system over to game-specific profiles, or unlock access to a hidden Shadow Drive for private storage.
Display
This IPS-level display on this laptop has a 240 Hz refresh rate and a 3 ms response time, ideal for fast-paced action scenes in FPS, racing games, and more.
Cooling Design
Aside from exterior vents, the Strix SCAR III has ultra-thin, self-cleaning fans to help dissipate heat. Users can also switch between operating modes to find their preferred balance between performance and noise.
Aura Sync
Aura Sync provides this system with customizable RGB lighting. Sync it with other compatible peripherals and products for a unified theme.
ROG RangeBoost
ROG RangeBoost technology enhances your Wi-Fi connection, increasing its stability and range. Users can also opt for wired Internet access via the Gigabit Ethernet jack.
Keyboard
The keyboard on the Strix SCAR III features curved keycaps, WASD highlighted keys, N-key rollover, and per-key RGB backlighting. Moreover, they're rated for 20 million keypresses for long-term use.
Audio
The Strix SCAR III has side-firing speakers with Smart Amp technology, which monitors audio output and makes real-time adjustments to keep the speakers within thermal and excursion limits, preventing damage to the cones. This results in less distortion, higher dynamic range, more bass, and significantly higher potential output.
Windows 10 Home
Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
