A matte screen suits the Zenbook - Asus Zenbook 15 UX534FTC in review

Asus ZenBook 15 UX534FTC in review: Matte display, well performing components, outstanding battery life
Asus ZenBook 15 UX534FTC in review: Matte display, well performing components, outstanding battery life
Asus has equipped its compact Zenbook with a four-core processor and a dedicated graphics chip. There is a lot to like about the other features as well: Matte IPS display, NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), backlit keyboard. On top of that, the battery life is outstanding.

With the Zenbook 15 UX534FTC, Asus has delivered a sleek, slim and compact 15.6-inch laptop with the approximate dimensions of a 14-inch device. Despite this, the laptop does not suffer when it comes to the performance department. There is a four-core Core i7-10510U processor and a GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics chip on board.

The slim, compact device defies expectations of a limited performance. Both the processor and the dedicated graphics chip can consistently run at high speeds. For the CPU, this only holds true while on mains, however. In battery mode, the CPU's Turbo Boost increases the clock speed marginally or not at all. A welcome consequence: The system achieves great battery life.

According to Asus' web page, configurations with 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM are available. Since the memory is soldered, upgrading the RAM at a later date is not possible. Here, we would have liked to see a model with 32 GB for users who are looking for a more future-proof configuration.

Unfortunately, there is no Thunderbolt 3 port on the UX534FTC. In our opinion, a compact, mobile laptop in this price range should include this connector by default. Thunderbolt 3 would have allowed users to connect feature-rich docking solutions as well as a more powerful, external GPU. Furthermore, there are only two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports (1x Type-A, 1x Type-C).

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the Asus Zenbook 15 UX534FTC.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
