It’s not simply super versatile, Asus may have at long last delivered gaming PC flawlessness.
The Asus ROG Flow X13 is effectively the most energizing thing I’ve seen from CES 2021 up until this point, truth be told it’s presumably the most fascinating thing to happen to workstations in years. Initially, as the name proposes, it’s a small 13-inch gaming PC, and we’ve seen from any semblance of the Razer Blade 13 that such gadgets can work splendidly as gaming machines. Furthermore, you’re not going to be humiliated bringing this into a work meeting either (does anybody met others face to face? No? Alright… )
That is not all however, the Flow X13 is the first occasion when that Asus has made a super thin gaming 2-in-1. Correct, it’s one of those flexible machines where the screen can be flipped right around with the goal that you can utilize it in an assortment of modes. It has a touch screen too, so in the event that you need to utilize it as a supercharged tablet, at that point you can. Then again, prop it up in tent mode and you can watch movies and mess around, and when utilized like that you’ll appreciate improved wind stream as well.
Asus utilized the fantastic Zephyrus G14 as the beginning stage of the ROG Flow X13 and worked from that point. Clearly shaving an inch off the inclining measurements simultaneously. As referenced, this is a super meager machine, and as such is simply 15.8mm dainty. The body is a magnesium compound that has been sandblasted to help ensure it doesn’t sneak out of your hands.
Inside the scrumptious undercarriage, you’ll locate a cutting edge AMD Ryzen 5000-arrangement versatile processor close by a Nvidia GTX 1650 to give acceptable gaming execution when in a hurry (more on that in a second). You can likewise spec the machine out with shockingly quick memory—up to 32GB of 4,266MHz LPDDR4X RAM, no less. The Flow X13 can be arranged with either a 512GB or 1TB M.2 SSD too.
Asus has moved to a 16:10 perspective proportion for the screen, which presents somewhat more space vertically. You can likewise pick whether you go with a 120Hz FullHD or a 60Hz 4k screen, the two of which are contact boards. They’re likewise Pantone approved, so whichever one you pick, you know shading precision will be right on the money.
There’s something else up the Flow X13’s sleeve however, and that will be specifically noteworthy to us gamers, you can utilize an outside GPU with it. We’ve clearly been guaranteed such things previously, however they’ve never truly taken off. Asus trusts it has the answer for the specialized impediments that have tormented past arrangements however and has built up an exclusive interface that is quicker than Thunderbolt 3. This permits the Flow X13 to connect to cutting edge cards like the RTX 3080 for work area levels of execution.
So you can heft the 1.3kg PC around with you in the day, and afterward attach it to the eGPU box around evening time for some genuine gaming, or even work in the event that you totally need to. The eGPU has a 280W force plan, and at 1Kg it isn’t impossible to take this with you if necessary too, in spite of the fact that hefting around a RTX 3080 is presumably the most distrustfulness prompting thing you can do with PC equipment right now.
The ROG Zephyrus Flow X13 resembles it will challenge our best gaming PCs, and could really see eGPUs at long last become a thing. The reality it’s a particularly little and ground-breaking machine surely gives it the most obvious opportunity with regards to succeeding. What’s more, even without the eGPU side of things (you don’t need to purchase that too), this seems as though an incredible gaming machine. I sincerely can hardly wait to give it a full summary in our labs.
Asus has a lot of different machines coming out as well, with updates to its current lines, and new machines in its TUF and Strix ranges, with higher revive boards and overclocked AMD processors no less.
