Test Asus ROG Strix Scar II GL704GW (i7-8750H, RTX 2070) laptop

Just a few months ago, we were able to test the ROG Strix Scar II GL704GM from Asus, but at that time still with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. Asus is now one of the first manufacturers to ship laptops for gaming with the new RTX chips from Nvidia. Today, we look at the new GL704GW, where the GeForce RTX 2070 is greatly enhanced in performance. The remaining specs, including Core i7-8750H, have not changed. So the question is how to cool the young players through the extra power handle
