Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 W500G5T Review: Powerful workstation with weaknesses

2-kg (4.4 lbs) workstation. The Asus workstation scores some major points in our review thanks to a very high level of performance, 4K display and 16 GB of VRAM. Moreover, our review device features 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. However, there is no Thunderbolt 3 port.

Case & Connectivity - No Thunderbolt 3 for the W500G5T

The metal housing of the Asus StudioBook looks very premium and comes in the colour scheme known as Star Grey. There are no gaps or chinks anywhere. Both the display lid and the chassis are very rigid. The battery is built in. To get to the internal components, users will have to remove the bottom cover.

The workstation has three USB Type-A ports (2x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2) and one USB Type-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 2). The USB-C port can output a DisplayPort signal (with an adapter that is sold separately). Together with the HDMI port, our review device offers two video outputs. There is no SD card reader.

The StudioBook supports the following IEEE standards: 802.11a, b, g, n, ac and ax. It also comes with a Bluetooth 5.0 module. The data transfer speeds that we have measured under the optimal conditions (no other Wi-Fi-enabled devices in close proximity, a short distance between the notebook and the server PC; Router: Netgear Nighthawk AX12) are very good.

Input Devices - The StudioBook offers a keyboard backlight

The Asus StudioBook comes with a chiclet-style keyboard, which offers short travel distance. The keycaps have a smooth surface. When typing the keyboard deck exhibits some flex. All in all, the StudioBook has a good keyboard. The multitouch-enabled Clickpad (10.5x7.3 cm - 4.1x2.9 in) offers enough space for gestures. The smooth surface makes finger-gliding easy. The pad has a clear actuation point and short travel distance.

The 15.6-inch display of the StudioBook operates with a native resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. The screen offers a contrast ratio of 930:1. We view a contrast ratio above 1000:1 as good. The display brightness of 334.8 cd/m² is quite good. The response times of the 60-Hz panel could have been faster. Positive: The display does not suffer from PWM flickering.

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
35 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 90 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
58 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 27 ms rise
↘ 31 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 93 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.7 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Right out of the box, the Pantone-certified display offers a very good color reproduction. The DeltaE 2000 colour deviation amounts to 1.8 (DeltaE less than 3 is the ideal value). The display does not suffer from a bluish cast. The screen does very well when it comes to colour space coverage. The panel covers 98% of sRGB and 85% of AdobeRGB.

The IPS panel of the W500G5T offers very stable viewing angles. This is why the screen content can be read from any position. Outside, the device can only be used when the sun does not shine too brightly.

Performance - Powerful enough for all applications

The Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 W500G5T is a slim, compact workstation with a 15.6-inch screen. It can handle all current applications. Our review device retails for about 5000 Euros (~$5908) and represents the most expensive configuration. 

System Settings

The ProArt Creator Hub utility offers two power plans. We have conducted most of our benchmarks using the Normal power plan. However, we have run some benchmarks with the Rendering power plan as well. Users can switch between the two power plans by pressing F11 or in ProArt Creator Hub. However, it is not preinstalled, but it can be easily downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

Processor

The StudioBook comes with the Core i7-9750H, which is a hexa-core CPU based on the Coffee Lake Refresh architecture. The processor has a base clock rate of 2.6 GHz. Thanks to Intel’s Turbo Boost technology, the clock rate can be boosted up to 4 GHz for all six cores and up to 4.5 GHz for a single core. The Intel chip supports Hyper-threading, which means that each core can process two threads at the same time.

In the multi-core section of the Cinebench R15 benchmark, the CPU runs at 4 GHz when plugged in. When running on battery power, the CPU frequency fluctuates between 800 MHz and 4 GHz. The clock rates fluctuate between 4 and 4.5 GHz in the single-core benchmark.

We check if the Turbo boost can be used over an extended period of time by running the Cinebench multi-core benchmark in a continuous loop for 30 minutes. The Turbo boost technology is utilised at a medium level. In Rendering mode, which you can enable in ProArt Creator Hub, the CPU is able to maintain higher clock speeds.

Graphics Card

The Quadro RTX 5000 Max-Q is the professional version of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q. It features 16.384 GB of VRAM. The 3DMark results are on a normal level for this kind of GPU. We did not observe a boost performance in Rendering mode. The integrated UHD Graphics 630 in the Core i7-9750H is enabled and NVIDIA’s Optimus technology is utilised. 

Nvidia specifies a base clock of 600 MHz and a boost clock of 1350 MHz for this GPU. Higher clocks are possible as long as the GPU does not reach a thermal or power limit. The maximum clock amounts to 1849 MHz. In the benchmark with the Witcher 3, we saw the average clock speeds of 1200 MHz and 1270 MHz (in Rendering mode).

Gaming Performance

The Asus laptop can run all current games smoothly. It can usually achieve playable frame rates at 1080p on the highest settings. The GPU struggles to handle resolutions above 1080p. To achieve playable frame rates at 4K, users will have to lower graphics settings.

While there is no difference between the Normal and the Rendering mode in the 3DMark benchmark, the Rendering mode provides a slight boost in performance when gaming. In this mode, the GPU is able to achieve somewhat higher clocks in the gaming stress test with the Witcher 3

We use the video game known as The Witcher 3 to check if the frame rates can be maintained consistently over an extended period of time. For this, we run the game on the highest settings at 1080p for one hour. Over the entire run of gameplay, the player-controlled character just stands still. There are no frame rate drops to report.
