Performance, autonomy of Asus VivoBook S15 S532FA-BQ044T
The Asus VivoBook S15 S532FA-BQ044T is a compact 15-inch High Definition notebook designed for everyday use.
It is distinguished by its good amount of RAM 16 GB above average. Very appreciable in multitasking, it allows to see well come in this area. It is associated with a Whiskey Lake low-power Quad Core i5-8265U processor.
As a result, many users will be satisfied with the overall performance delivered by this Ultrabook, with the exception of those who want to perform heavy CPU work on a regular basis. In this case, they will benefit from opting for a PC with a non-low-power processor.
In any case, the responsiveness is everyday with this thin and light Ultrabook because it enjoys SSD storage. And not just any, a 512GB SSD that competes with hard drives in terms of capacity, which is still too infrequent.
Compared to a hard drive, remember that a SSD is much faster while being less energy, more resistant to shocks and silent.
With the SSD, the fluidity is better than a hard disk in use. Starting / stopping and launching applications are thus much faster.
As it does not include a dedicated graphics card, this Ultrabook is not designed for the game and more generally demanding 3D treatments. Nevertheless, it allows you to watch photos and videos thanks to the (modest) benefits of the Intel UHD 620, integrated solution to the Quad Core i5.
As for autonomy, pending more concrete tests, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the weight of less than 2 kg.
