Performance, battery life of Asus R409DA-EK510T
The Asus R409DA-EK510T is a responsive, compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It is able to satisfy many users when it comes to general performance as it relies on an AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 3700U low power Picasso processor as well as a good amount of very good 8 GB RAM. appreciable in multitasking.
As the Ryzen 7 houses the Radeon RX Vega 10 solution within it, it is able to run games that consume little graphics resources, despite the absence of a dedicated GPU. In fact, the Radeon RX Vega 10 performs significantly better than the UHD 620 of Intel processors. It is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card. So with the Radeon RX Vega 10, you can of course also watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, Asus has chosen here an SSD which has the advantage of ensuring daily operation that is much more responsive and fluid than a simple hard drive.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also more resistant to shocks, less energy and silent. Thanks to the SSD, starts / stops are faster, just like launching applications for example.
We also have the possibility of relying on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this PC whose transport is facilitated by the weight contained, without however being as easy as for an Ultrabook, expect about 4 hours on battery in light use.
