ASUS has released the ROG Flow X16 (GV601), an ultra-slim 16-inch device that incorporates XG mobile compatibility as well as a more powerful standalone GPU. The device is a potent gaming notebook with high-end multimedia features.
Design and display
Measuring just 19.4mm thick, the ultra-thin magnesium alloy chassis of the Flow X16 has a ‘gravity wave’ textured pattern. Additionally, the sandblasting finish provides better grip when carrying it.
A 360-degree hinge on the laptop provides for a wide range of viewing angles. For increased durability, the display is touchscreen enabled and is covered in scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. For regular work and play, users can set it to clamshell mode, or they can flip to stand mode. Users may simply fold the screen all the way back to transform it into a touchscreen tablet with stylus support for graphic design and other uses. Meanwhile, the MiniLED Nebula HDR display on the device has a peak brightness of 1100 nits, a refresh rate of 165Hz, and a response time of 3ms. Additionally, for increased productivity among creators, all panels feature a 16:10 aspect ratio and are Pantone Validated for excellent colour accuracy.
Ultimate performance and capabilities
The ROG Flow X16 is powered by AMD 6900HS processor and features Nvidia Geforce RTX3070 Ti GPU, boosting up to 125WTGP and with a Mux Switch. With the help of the Mux or Multiplexer Switch, users can manually activate or deactivate the built-in graphics. It improves performance and the overall gaming experience. In order to boost the performance to the next level, ROG XG mobile reinvents external graphics by combining performance and versatility. It draws 165W from an AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT GPU when using ROG Boost. Its unique interface adds dedicated bandwidth for an integrated I/O hub while avoiding common bottlenecks and dongles.
Apart from the performance, cooling solutions are also an important aspect of every laptop. ROG has carefully planned perforations in the chassis, and its Frost Force Technology with Pulsar heatsink sends airflow toward internal components to keep them cool under all circumstances. Additionally, a third auxiliary fan assists in channeling heat from the GPU, which keeps the computer cool during extended video rendering or gaming sessions.
Audio reinforced features
The laptop features a variety of audio reinforcements from Smart Amp speakers for more dynamic audio speakers, a 3D Mic Array for clear voice capture, and Dolby Atmos® support allow crystal clear audio. Streams, chats, and recordings are clearer thanks to the two-way AI noise cancellation technology, which cleans up both input and output audio. Additionally, individual noise-cancelling settings can even be modified to filter out certain programmes, such as voice chat, without disrupting your gaming audio or any meetings on the go.
