Earlier today, gaming brand Republic of Gamers announced a huge swath of new products at its For Those Who Dare: Boundless virtual event, ranging from more conventional reveals like notebooks and 2-in-1 convertibles to unusual additions like hats, bags, and even parkour games.

The first new product is the ROG Strix Scar 17 Special Edition (cover image), a rough, tough 17-inch gaming notebook that pairs cutting-edge cooling implements with class-leading power, allowing gamers to experience top-notch gaming experiences both at home and on the go. Key features include a 17.3-inch FHD 360Hz (or QHD 240Hz) display, a custom vapour chamber with ROG's exclusive Conductonaut Extreme liquid metal, a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12950HX processor, and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU. Last but not least, it even comes with a special design made in invisible ink on the chassis that appears green and blue under UV light and offers in-game hints for SCAR Runner, which we'll get into shortly.

The second notebook is the 16-inch ROG Flow Z16, a 2-in-1 convertible that's designed to stay mobile without sacrificing performance. Not only does it sport the versatility that users expect of a 2-in-1, but this 2.1kg light notebook is also equipped for power with its AMD Ryzen 96900HS processor and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. In addition, it features full compatibility with the XG Mobile family of external GPUs, topped off with ROG's flagship Nebula HDR display, all-new Frost Force cooling technology, and Pulsar Heatsink.

Moving on to apparel, ROG announced a whopping six new additions to the ROG Slash fashion line - two hats and four bags. Made out of water-repellent TPU materials with adjustable straps and multiple compartments for added utility, we've got the new ROG Crossbody Bag, Hip Bag, Backpack, and Protective Laptop Bags. As for hats, the new Cobra Buckle Cap and Bucket Hat can be worn in a wide variety of situations, adding a sleek dash of style to any outfit. 

Aside from products, the event also unveiled and reaffirmed ROG's various esports partnerships, which will tie into the expanding Team ROG umbrella. The brand is pairing up with a diverse international cast of influencers, athletes, and content creators, including Misfits Gaming and more recently, ReKT Gaming too. In celebration of these new expansions, you'll even be able to download a number of exclusive Team ROG wallpapers.
