Performance, battery life of Asus Vivobook S712DA-BX392T
The Asus Vivobook S712DA-BX392T is a relatively thin and light 17-inch laptop designed for everyday use.
It stands out for its hybrid storage offering a high total capacity of 1.1 TB above average. It consists of a 128 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system as well as the main software, and a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a daily hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster application launches and starts / stops.
The SSD therefore accompanies the heart of this computer very well, delivering good performance in everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet. There is indeed on board a good amount of RAM 8 GB above average and very useful in multitasking. It is associated with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 3 3200U low-power Picasso processor. However, the latter shows its limits under software requiring processor resources.
The Ryzen 3 Picasso integrates within it a Radeon Vega 3 graphics part, but is not supported by a dedicated graphics card. Therefore, this PC is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming. However, of course it allows viewing photos and videos.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose finesse and weight are contained for a 17-inch, particularly comfortable format for mainly sedentary use (eg at home), expect about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
