AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX is a Mobile Beast: Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551QS Laptop Review

Intel not inside. 45 percent faster than the Core i9-10980HK, 45 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q, and over 7x faster gray-gray response times. The 2021 Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551 makes last year's Zephyrus Duo GX550 feel outdated already.

The Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551 series is the AMD version of last year's Intel-powered Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550. It effectively swaps out all the 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs for Zen 3 Cezanne options including the Ryzen 7 5800H and Ryzen 9 5900HX. The GPU gets an update as well from Nvidia Turing to Ampere up to the GeForce RTX 3080 alongside new 300 Hz FHD and 120 Hz 4K panels.

Aside from the new CPUs, GPUs, and displays mentioned above, the 2021 GX551 chassis remains identical to the 2020 GX550 and so we recommend checking out our review on the GX550 here to learn more about the physical features of the system. This review will focus more on the display and performance of the GX551 as the Asus is one of the first to ship with an H-series Zen 3 CPU. Comparisons between it and Core i9 alternatives like the MSI GE66, Lenovo Legion 7,  or Asus' own Strix Scar 15 are inevitable.

The configuration in review today is the highest-end SKU of the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE GX551QS for about $3700 USD retail.

Connectivity

Though ports are identical to last year's GX550, the USB-C port on the GX551 does not support Thunderbolt likely due to the lack of a dedicated controller on the AMD chipset. It would've also been great to see 10 Gbit Ethernet instead of the usual 1 Gbit.

Display

The new 120 Hz 4K display is a significant improvement over the 60 Hz 4K display on last year's GX550 beyond the obvious refresh rate upgrade. Most notably, response times have improved dramatically from 30 ms on the GX550 to just 3 ms to 5 ms on the newer panel. Gameplay and cursor movements are noticeably smoother and with almost no noticeable ghosting for a better gaming experience. Color space and brightness remain about the same gen-to-gen while contrast has dipped slightly, but that's a small price to pay when considering the advantages gained.

The panel also supports FreeSync to reduce screen tearing which certainly comes in handy as even the most powerful of GPUs can't run all titles at native 4K and a steady 120 FPS.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers almost all of AdobeRGB not unlike most flagship Ultrabooks and laptops with 4K panels. Accurate colors are common on such panels and so it's the fast black-white and gray-gray response times that make this one on the Asus so special.

The main panel comes pre-calibrated out of the box. Even so, our colorimeter shows a warmer color temperature than expected for an imbalanced gamma curve. Our own calibration fixes this for a lower average grayscale DetalE of just 1.8.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
8.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21033 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

ScreenPad

The ScreenPad panel remains exactly the same as on the GX550 and so our previous comments apply here. Most notably, gamut covers only sRGB while refresh rate is limited to 60 Hz in comparison to the full AdobeRGB coverage and 120 Hz refresh rate of the main display. Response times are measurably slower than the main display meaning ghosting will be more noticeable. Texts and images are also grainier due to the thicker overlying matte layer. The secondary display can be irreplaceable for multi-tasking, but don't expect perfect 1:1 colors, contrast, or even brightness between the two screens.

The most notable improvement to the ScreenPad is its redesigned UI which runs smoother and more responsively than the older version on the GX550. The recent ZenBook UX482 ScreenPad utilizes this updated software as well. However, Asus says the GX550 will receive the same software update at some point in the future if not already.

Performance

Nvidia has dropped the Max-Q branding and so there are no more Max-Q options for the GX551 unlike on the GX550. Asus has confirmed with us that the GeForce RTX 3080 in our configuration targets a TGP of 130 W.

We recommend owners become familiar with the pre-installed Asus Armoury Crate software as important system features are toggled here including Performance mode and Turbo mode.

Processor

When compared to the Core i9-10980HK in the GX550, our Ryzen 9 5900HX can offer up to almost 50 percent faster multi-thread performance. The wide gap can be attributed to the excellent performance sustainability of AMD Turbo Core whereas Intel Turbo Boost is relatively short-lived on the GX550. This is exemplified by our CineBench r15 xT loop graph below where the initial score of 1800 points on the GX550 would dip by 10 to 15 percent during the second loop in contrast to our tighter Ryzen 9 scores. Single-thread advantage goes to the AMD chip as well by about 15 percent over the Core i9-10980HK. Ryzen chips have traditionally lagged behind Intel in this respect, but AMD may be finally catching up here and then some.

Note that opting for the less expensive Ryzen 7 5800H option will entail a multi-thread performance deficit of only about 7 to 18 percent. Thus, you'll be getting a faster processor than the Core i9-10980HK no matter which Zen 3 option you choose.

Running the Zephyrus in Performance mode instead of Turbo mode will incur a CPU performance deficit of just 5 to 10 percent according to CineBench R20.

See our dedicated pages on the Ryzen 9 5900HX for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are higher than last year's GX550 but still consistently lower than the Eurocom Sky X4C even though our Asus houses newer and faster components. We suspect that the SSDs in our unit may be partly responsible as Asus says there has been a RAID 0 driver delay for review units.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon shows steep DPC latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. Repeating this test on Balanced mode would not result in any improvements. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is otherwise smooth and with no dropped frames. CPU and integrated GPU utilization would each sit at single digits as expected from such high-power components. A typical Core i7 Ice Lake Ultrabook would typically stabilize at around 40 to 50 percent GPU utilization in comparison.

GPU Performance

Raw Graphics performance is only about 15 percent faster than the average GeForce RTX 2080 laptop to be a far cry from the "proper" desktop GeForce RTX 3080. It's still one of the fastest mobile GPUs available, but users should definitely not expect performance to be anywhere close to the desktop version even though they may share the same name. Instead, performance will be more comparable to a desktop GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

On the bright side, graphics performance is significantly faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q in last year's GX550 by about 45 percent. It's not all bad news depending on how you look at the data.

Running our Zephyrus in Performance mode instead of Turbo mode would incur a GPU performance deficit of just 5 to 10 percent according to 3DMark. If on battery power, our Fire Strike Physics and Graphics scores would drop to 24710 and 6478 points, respectively.

Gaming Performance

Real-world performance in games is consistently faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q especially when playing at higher resolutions beyond 1080p. Expect up to a 50 percent boost in frame rates if running at 4K compared to 30 to 40 percent at 1080p.

GTA V would not load properly on our unit despite multiple reinstall attempts.
