ASUS ROG Flow X13 upgraded to NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs; 35 W SKUs only
The ASUS ROG Flow X13 is, from a technical standpoint, one of the most forward-thinking laptops released this year. Not only does the machine come with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS APU, but it also supports a portable eGPU.
The ROG Flow X13 has a dedicated GPU too, initially limited to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q. However, ASUS now offers the 13.4-inch laptop with a GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, Ampere GPUs with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.
According to ASUS, both graphics cards will run at 35 W, and 1,135 MHz with ROG Boost, or 40 W with Dynamic Boost enabled. Consulting NVIDIA's specification sheet confirms that these are the lowest-end RTX 3050 series configurations that the company offers. Nonetheless, the RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti should both deliver performance improvements over the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q, a 35 W card itself.
