The Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080 against the competition
The Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080 is currently available at Boulanger and Fnac . It is positioned as one of the few in its category to take advantage of a screen with such a high definition and to be supplied with a graphics card (admittedly external) as powerful but also to be able to transform into a Tablet.
If this Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080 does not meet all your criteria, you will find on our laptop gamer guide other configurations to play with a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model that has the most powerful graphics card, it will have the most impact on performance.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080
For a gaming laptop PC whose codes it adopts with its black color and angular lines, this ultraportable has a relatively elegant and discreet look.
It can be recharged to 50% in 30 minutes.
It is cooled by 2 Arc Flow fans, Thermal Grizzly thermal paste, a 2.0 self-cleaning system, as well as flat heat pipes and air vents.
It can be opened 360 ° to transform into a Tablet thanks to its multi-touch touch screen protected by a Gorilla Glass layer: by applying at least one finger on it, by gestures / pressures, you can interact with the system and the software .
The tactile involves a glossy treatment sensitive to reflections but which gives punch to the colors.
The screen stands out for its Pantone certification and its IPS technology involving a much more faithful than average colorimetry as well as significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. In addition, the screen adopts a 16 / 10th format more comfortable than the 16 / 9th for uses involving scrolling the screen, associated with an Ultra HD 4K definition much higher than Full HD and ideal for displaying content (Very) High Definition.
Of course, a backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for better discerning its keys in the dark.
In terms of connectivity, this thin and light versatile laptop PC offers wireless Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ), a useful HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port, 2 USB-C as well as 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
When the Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S is connected, the connection is no longer provided by extension which is appreciable.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080
The Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH-K5232T Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S Black RTX 3080 can appeal to those who have a large budget and want to invest in a versatile portable PC that is compact and nomadic but still powerful in gaming and creation.
As for autonomy, it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use which nomads will appreciate all the more since it is easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its lightness.
However, this ultraportable delivers a global power capable of seducing the most demanding users. Because it relies on a good amount of 32 GB RAM associated with an AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 9 5980HS Cezanne processor .
In particular, this core guarantees much faster processing than 8/16 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core processor, the difference being particularly important in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multi-cores, such as 3D rendering, video editing or Photo editing.
Creators will be all the more interested in this PC since it embeds the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 NVIDIA Turing graphics card which speeds up processing in software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
Even faster processing is obtained once the Asus ROG XG mobile GC31S is connected, thanks to its high-end on-board graphics card GeForce RTX 3080 NVIDIA Ampere with ray tracing.
If the GeForce GTX 1650 allows you to play a number of titles for concessions under the most resource-intensive 3D games to obtain good playability, players will be much more seduced by the much more powerful GeForce RTX 3080 thanks to which you can play to recent titles. However, some tweaking may be needed under the most graphics-intensive titles because 4K requires more GPU computation than Full HD, which means lower fps.
NVIDIA Optimus technology activates the GeForce GTX 1650 / RTX 3080 when the performance of the AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated into the Ryzen 9 Octo Core is insufficient to perform the desired tasks.
More efficient than the UHD 630 of Intel processors, the Vega 8 is preferred as far as possible by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy.
The GeForce GTX 1650 / RTX 3080 is therefore activated to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Vega 8, for example for gaming. With either of these graphics solutions, you can obviously watch photos and videos.
The integrated SSD storage clearly enhances its fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, for example, we get faster on the cards of online games than with a simple hard drive, and we get games / software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster.
Here we find an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that competes without worry with what hard drives offer.
Finally, this ultraportable heats up and is obviously heard when it is heavily used (eg games, treatments), but at controlled sound levels for this type of PC which heats up especially in the middle.
