The Asus’ portable coverage was expanded with the 13-inch ROG Flow X13, the 15-inch ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE and the 17-inch ROG Strix SCAR 17.
In addition to the new display with HDMI 2.1 and 4K 144 Hz support previously announced at the CES 2021 virtual trade fair, Asus has unveiled new portable gaming computers. A total of three new laptops were introduced, each of which differs from each other with quite obvious specialties. However, each new machine is connected by AMD’s Ryzen 5000 APU chip on their processor side and support for Adaptive-Sync technology on all display models.
Perhaps the most special novelty of the set is the new ROG Flow X13, which is a 13-inch 2-in-1 computer, meaning the laptop screen can be rotated 360 degrees, leaving the keyboard behind and making the device a virtually large tablet. However, unlike traditional 2-in-1 laptops, Asus advertises the ROG Flow X13 to be a gaming computer.
Inside the ROG Flow X13, AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 9 5980HS APU chip and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card stand out in the most powerful configuration. For the monitor, two configurations are coming for sale – a 120 Hz Full HD or a 60 Hz 4K panel. Both screen variants have an aspect ratio of 16:10, are protected by Corning’s unspecified Gorilla Glass, and are naturally touch screens for a 2-in-1 laptop. In terms of battery life, Asus promises the ROG Flox X13 will last up to 10 hours of gaming at full charge. Charging is at 100 watts via USB Type-C.
A friend of the ROG Flow X 13 will also be offered by the XG Mobile dock, which offers an external RTX 3080 video card. Unlike traditional external graphics cards, XG Mobile does not use Thunderbolt, but instead uses Asus ‘own eGPU, which offers 63 Gbps of bandwidth and, in Asus’ own words, significantly better performance than Thunderbolt. In addition to the graphics card, the XG Mobile dock includes an integrated 280-watt power supply that also charges the computer during operation and via a USB 3.2 Gen 2 link to a USB hub, as well as HDMI, DisplayPort and Ethernet connectors. Unfortunately, Asus has not provided more detailed information on the speeds of internet or video connections.
The next machine to be unveiled at CES 2021 is the new 15-inch ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE, which, as the name implies, is a continuation of Asus’ previous Zephyrus Duo series of dual-screen gaming laptops.
The main display is a 120 Hz 4K panel with a color space covering 100% of Adobe RGB or a 300 Hz Full HD display with 3 ms response times and 100% coverage of the sRGB color space. Asus promises a 4K resolution for the second screen, so it’s probably a 3480 × 1100 IPS panel with a refresh rate of 60 Hz, familiar from last year.
Performance on the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE is provided by AMD’s eight-core Ryzen 5900HX AU chip and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. In other respects, Asus advertises that it has upgraded the laptop speakers and developed cooling without the loud growth of the fans.
The largest screen of the new laptops is equipped with a 17-inch ROG Strix SCAR 17. It is by far the most traditional gaming laptop that focuses on providing performance. Inside the laptop, like the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE, you will find the Ryze 9 5900 HX APU chip and the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card at its best. A maximum of 64 gigabytes of RAM is available, and there is liquid metal between the processor and the cooler to improve cooling. The cooling is promised to be up to 3 decibels quieter than its predecessor.
The ROG Strix SCAR 17 is available with either a Full HD panel with a refresh rate of 360 Hz and 3 ms response times, or a WQHD panel with a refresh rate of 165 Hz and a DCI-P3 color space (2560 × 1440). The 90 Wh battery is promised to provide 12 hours of video playback on a single charge, which in turn is provided by a 100-watt USB Type-C charger.
In other respects, an RGB backlit keyboard is available with a 1.9 mm trajectory and, according to the manufacturer, a particularly short delay. The size of the plane mouse has been increased by 85% compared to the predecessor model.
Unfortunately, Asus has not yet revealed when new laptops can be expected up to store shelves, or what their prices will be.
