[TEST] ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 – performance

The processor in this model is a light profession. The Intel Core i7-10870H chip is a model from last year, which is a bit pale compared to the 11th generation processors, because it is still produced in 14 nm lithography and in older architecture. It offers 8 cores and quite high clock speeds, which positively translates into performance under heavy load.

The performance of one core does not impress anyone, the Ryzen 5000 and the 11th generation Core are clearly ahead. 8 cores slightly improves the results in multithreaded tests, but the loss to the leaders is also quite big. It’s not a bad deal, but there are better ones on the market.

Gaming performance

Mounting such a powerful GPU – the GeForce RTX 3070 in such a small housing is certainly a challenge, but this little one managed to do it and thanks to this, he can enjoy great gaming performance, easily keeping up with the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q.

In games, however, it looks like this:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (1920 × 1080 pixels, High settings) – 126 fps

Control (1920 × 1080 pixels, Ultra settings, DLSS Off, RTX Off) – 125 fps
Control (1920 × 1080 pixels, Ultra settings, DLSS On, RTX Off) – 156 fps
Control (1920 × 1080 pixels, Ultra settings, DLSS Off, RTX On) – 63 fps
Control (1920 × 1080 pixels, Ultra settings, DLSS On, RTX On) – 97 fps

Considering that the matrix has only 60 Hz, these values ​​are more than enough, but if you feel like playing in 4K resolution, there should be no major problems either. The more that the presence of the HDMI 2.1 port allows you to connect your computer to the TV and enjoy the image with a refresh of up to 120 Hz.

The SSD used is a mid-range Samsung model that offers correct, but not great performance.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 – bateria

As I mentioned, the battery has a capacity of 92 Wh, so quite a lot, but it also has something to do, especially with the OLED display, whose characteristics mean that the more bright background, the more energy it consumes. With the reader’s test, which boils down to browsing websites with a brightness of about 160 nits, we managed to achieve just over 7 hours of work. The film in the loop takes less than 6.5 hours with the same screen brightness setting. If you want maximum performance, you won’t run more than an hour and 20 minutes on the battery, and you’ll still be quite clearly limited in terms of maximum CPU and GPU clock speeds.

Reader test (screen brightness at 50%, WiFi on, refreshing the website every 30 seconds) – 7h 9 minutes
Film test (screen brightness at 50%, WiFi on) – 6h 21 minutes
In-game test (screen brightness 50%, The Witcher 3) – 1h 22 minutes

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 – temperatures, noise, energy consumption

In the case of ultrabooks, I often remind them that with such a small size it is impossible to physically fit an efficient cooling system. ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 may not be the smallest, but it is still a computer just over 2 cm thick. The cooling system in this model, however, is sensational, although unfortunately it is also quite loud in the performance mode. Even under long-term load, the CPU temperature does not exceed 86 degrees Celsius, and the GPU does not exceed 77 degrees Celsius, and what’s more, I have not recorded any throttling here, the parameters are kept all the time. It is true that it gets loud (over 54 dBa) and hot air escapes from the vents on the sides, but this system works. The hinge lifts both the bottom of the computer and the top screen and allows cold air to flow freely. In standard mode, it is noticeably quieter under load (46 dB), and while browsing the web, the fans are practically inaudible.

When it comes to power consumption, it is about 20 W at rest, with a CPU load in performance mode, it increases to 125 W, and in games it stabilizes at about 160 W. If you load the CPU and GPU independently, the power consumption can even exceed 200 W , hence the set includes a 240 W power supply.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 – summary

ASUS once again shows that the unusual approach to the design of the notebook makes sense and gives a lot of possibilities. Under normal conditions, fitting such efficient components into such a small computer would not be possible, or at least very difficult. However, the system that the ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 uses does a great job and ensures high performance in any situation. It is true that it makes a lot of noise, and the processor itself is not one of the top solutions, but what they have to leave for the next model ;-).

In addition, the UX582 makes a great impression in other respects, the OLED matrix is ​​great, perfectly reproduces colors, provides perfect contrast and is suitable for both work and entertainment. The additional display is a very individual matter, I am sure that many people will find a use for it, the more that the working area is quite large there (3840 × 1100 pixels). The only thing that can be a sign is the keyboard mounted on the very edge of the notebook, it requires getting used to, especially if you work on the go and do not always have a wrist rest at hand. In some situations, the presence of only one USB Type A port can also be troublesome, but otherwise there is something to complain about here. Even the price – PLN 12,999, for such a configuration does not seem that much exaggerated, especially when looking at today’s prices of graphics cards.
