Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro 17 W700G3T Review: The mobile workstation is hampered by small things

Needs some fine-tuning. The new ProArt product line from Asus is specifically designed for content creators and includes notebooks, desktops, and special displays. We review the 17-inch StudioBook Pro 17 with Core i7 CPU and Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 Studio Max-Q GPU. The slim workstation is convincing in many respects, but the devil is in the details.
Andreas Osthoff 👁 (translated by Andreas Osthoff),

Asus' new ProArt product family is designed for (semi) professional users, starting with content creators, all the way up to game developers, product designers, architects or graphics artists. In addition to some laptops, you can also get desktop PCs, displays or individual PC components like motherboards. Today we have a look at the 17-inch StudioBook Pro 17, which is equipped with a professional Quadro GPU from Nvidia. If you don't need the ISV certifications of the Quadro GPU, you can also get the same device with a consumer GeForce GPU, which is called the StudioBook 17.

Our test unit with the designation W700G3T-AV103R for around 3900 Euros (~$4227) features the Intel Core i7-9750H processor, a Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q GPU, 32 GB RAM, and a 1 TB NVMe-SSD. There is only one display option, a matte Full-HD panel (16:10) with high color accuracy and the P3 color gamut.

Case – StudioBook with thin metal body

The case of the new StudioBook Pro 17 leaves a very stylish impression with its dark gray surfaces and rose gold accents, but is not too striking. The design is obviously a matter of taste, but it should be no problem to use the mobile workstation in an office environment without drawing too much attention. A quick look at the spec sheet shows another color option called Turquoise Grey, which tends more towards blue.

The chassis is made of a magnesium alloy and the base unit in particular is very sturdy for a slim device. Even the center keyboard area is very stable, and we can only slightly flex the surface with a lot of pressure. Our twisting attempts did not reveal any issues, either. The top of the base unit is divided into two parts; the textured palm rests and the smooth keyboard deck. The texture helps preventing fingerprints, which works well in practice. The central hinge is very firm and allows a maximum opening angle of 180 degrees. However, there is still some bouncing of the panel and the lid automatically falls down at an angle of ~10 degrees or less. You can only open the lid with one hand when you shake it a bit.

Massive bottom bezel
Massive bottom bezel

Asus advertises a so called Nano Edge display with very slim bezels. However, this is only true for the two sides and the top bezel. The lower bezel on the other hand is pretty bulky, even though it is a 16:10 panel. Asus tries to hide this fact visually by using two different surfaces (lower part similar to palm rests), but this does not really help. As a result, we cannot confirm the advertised body-to-screen ratio of up to 84%, our calculation results in 77%.

The stability of the otherwise smooth lid is completely okay. As expected, there is more movement compared to the base unit when we try to twist it, but it is not critical by any means and we could not provoke any picture distortions with concentrated pressure, either. According to the manufacturer, the notebook meets the MIL-STD specification, which includes several tests (like temperature, humidity, etc.), but the spec sheet does not list the individual tests.

The chassis is slightly thinner towards the front so it appears even slimmer overall. The StudioBook Pro 17 is a bit narrower than its direct 17-inch competitor, but also a bit deeper in return. It is also very slim at just 1.84 cm (~0.724 inches). Apple's MacBook Pro 16 is obviously the most compact device here thanks to the smaller display.

Connectivity – StudioBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3

The angled power connector is not ideal.
The angled power connector is not ideal.

Both the rear and the two rear side areas are occupied by the cooling solution, so all the ports are limited to the center and front areas of the sides. This is not ideal in practice and especially the center power port in combination with the angled connector was often annoying during our review period. You either block some ports (USB-C and HMDI), or the power cable is sitting right in front of the cooling vent.

Otherwise, you get all important ports and the Thunderbolt 3 port supports the full bandwidth (40 Gbps). We also like the three status LEDs at the front of the system and the box includes a USB-Ethernet adapter.

Communication – Wi-Fi 6 for the workstation

Intel's AX200 is a very modern and fast Wi-Fi 6 module, which worked very well in our review. Our test with the reference router from Netgear (Nighthawk RAX120) determines transfer rates of almost 1.8 Gbps. We did not experience any issues in combination with the Netgear router or an AVM Fritz!Box 7490, either.

Warranty

The StudioBook Pro 17 is shipped with a two-year send-in warranty by default, but it is possible to extend the warranty period to three years.

Input Devices

Keyboard

The illuminated keyboard leaves a good impression during typing with its 1.4 mm key travel and decent feedback. The keys are not too loud, either, but this only applies for the regular keys. The space bar of our unit was pretty clattery, especially when we triggered it at the sides.

We also miss a dedicated numeric keypad. There is an alternative via touchpad (more on that in the next section), but there would have been sufficient room at the sides of the keyboard. It is easy to find the arrow keys thanks to their textured surface (similar to the palm rests).

Touchpad

Touchpad with illuminated numpad
Touchpad with illuminated numpad

The touchpad has a glass surface and provides good gliding capabilities. The pad also sits a bit deeper inside the in the chassis, so it is easy find without looking. We did not experience any problems during regular use (including gestures with up to four fingers), but the pad (10.5 x 7.5 cm/~4.1 x 3.0 in) could have been larger. This limitation is probably connected with the secondary function as a numeric keypad, which can be activated by pressing the upper right corner of the pad. It works pretty well, but we don't think it can completely replace a dedicated numpad because of the missing feedback.

Display – Asus ProArt with 16:10 Full-HD

Backlight bleeding (enhanced for the picture)

There is only one display for the StudioBook Pro 17: A 16:10 IPS screen with a matte surface and the resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Subjectively, the picture impression is good and the panel does not look too grainy. Our panel is provided by HannStar and we can confirm the advertised luminance of 300 cd/m² at most measuring spots. The black value on the other hand is a bit high for this brightness at 0.36 and results in a contrast ratio of just 900:1. We expected more from the panel, especially at this price range. 

PWM is not used, but there is visible backlight bleeding on dark pictures at the lower right and upper left edge.

The factory calibration is very good, because we can confirm the advertised DeltaE deviation <1.5 after our measurements with the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer. Only 100% blue is slightly above the target value at 3.3. Our own calibration only showed minor improvements, so an additional calibration by the user is not necessary.

However, Asus does not provide a color profile for sRGB, so the good results only apply for the P3 gamut. This means the panel is not suited for accurate edits in the smaller sRGB color space, because the color deviations are too high. You are limited to P3, which is covered by 98.1% according to CalMAN.

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
29.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 13.2 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 71 % 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
41.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 19.2 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. » 54 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to 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 17520 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is good; there is only a slight blue cast from wider angles. The device obviously benefits from the matte surface outdoors, but the brightness could be higher. We recommend a place in the shade for a comfortable working experience.

Performance – StudioBook with software calibration issues

MyAsus fan settings
MyAsus fan settings

Asus provides its own MyAsus tool, which also includes two profiles for the fans. Asus unfortunately does not combine these settings with the Windows performance slider, which is unnecessarily complicated. We also think the profiles are not very well optimized and do not fit the descriptions in the software. The default "auto" setting keeps the fan speeds very low, even under load, but this affects the performance. When you select "Turbo", however, the fans are extremely sensitive to load changes, which is rather annoying (more on that later). We will show results for both profiles in some of the performance sections, but we use the results with the default "Auto" settings for our rating.

Processor – W700 with Core i7-9750H

The Intel Core i7-9750H from the Coffee Lake generation (14nm) is a familiar CPU with six cores, and we refer to our tech section for more details. The performance utilization of the test unit is pretty good, independent of the selected fan profile. There are only small differences, which is also evident in the following chart with the data from our Cinebench Multi loop.

Cinebench Multi loop (red: Auto; green: Turbo)
Cinebench Multi loop (red: Auto; green: Turbo)

Our test unit is on par with the MSI WS75, while the Acer ConceptD with the same processor is slower. Both the MacBook Pro 16 and the Gigabyte Aero 17 with 8 cores are faster though.

There is still room for improvements on battery power. The processor is basically limited to 45 Watts (6x 3.2-3.3 GHz), but occasionally drops to just 8W (6x 0.8 GHz). The Cinebench Multi score therefore drops to around 700 points, independent of the fan profile.

System Performance – Asus ProArt with 2x M.2-SSD

2x M.2-2280 slots
2x M.2-2280 slots

Asus only uses fast components, so it is not surprising that the subjective performance impression is also very good. The synthetic benchmark scores are okay, only laptops with more powerful GPUs have an advantage.

You can install two M.2-2280 SSDs. Our test unit is equipped with a Samsung PM981 with a storage capacity of 1 TB. The drive performs very well in the benchmarks and there is no reason to replace it with another SSD.

GPU Performance – Workstation with Quadro Max-Q

GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q
GPU-Z Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q

The graphics card has the designation Quadro RTX 3000 Max-Q. In theory, the clock is lower compared to a regular RTX 3000, but we saw core clocks of up to 1650 MHz during our tests. Therefore, the performance is on par with the RTX 3000 in the Lenovo ThinkPad P73. Other manufacturers like MSI, for example, offer their slim 17-inch workstations with more powerful GPUs.

Contrary to the processor, the fan profiles have a bigger effect on the graphics performance. However, the W700 passes the challenging Time Spy stress test with both profiles. The GPU performance is massively reduced on battery power, independent of the fan profile: 13,196 vs. 4,384 points in 3DMark Fire Strike GPU (-66%). Simple graphics calculations are handled by the iGPU of the processor (Optimus).

Gaming Performance

It is no problem to play games with the mobile Quadro GPU since we did not experience any driver issues during our tests. The performance is sufficient for maximum details in all modern games at the native resolution, only QHD and 4K can sometimes be too demanding. The gaming performance of the consumer version RTX 2060 is a bit better, though.

Emissions

System Noise – Either quiet or annoying

The two fans stay very quiet in the "Auto" settings, even under maximum load. We did not measure more than 31.6 dB(A), so the device stays agreeable in every scenario. Still, the fan control is not great, because the fans are often running while idling or during very light workloads and you can hear a quiet murmur. As soon as you select the "Turbo" fan profile in the MyAsus app, the fans will react, as they are extremely sensitive to load changes. Our Cinebench loop is a good example, because there is a small break of ~2 seconds after every iteration. This time is sufficient for the fans to reduce the speed and quickly increase it again. You will have to live with fluctuating fan speeds during more demanding tasks or gaming. The maximum fan noise is 38.3 dB(A), which is still okay.

Temperature

You should not place the StudioBook Pro 17 on you lap under load, because we can measure more than 50 °C (122 °F) at the upper central area of the bottom panel. The top of the base unit also gets quite warm at up to 45 °C (113 °F), but this does not limit the usability.

Combined workloads, which are simulated by our stress test, are heavily influenced by the two fan settings. The default "Auto" settings will reduce the power consumption of the CPU to just 30W after a couple of seconds (6x 2.1 GHz), while the GPU runs at 1300-1400 MHz. If we select the "Turbo" profile, the CPU will run faster and also gets much warmer. Over the course of the stress test, the CPU consumption levels off at 50 Watts (6x2.7 GHz) and the GPU runs at 1450-1575 MHz. Overall a very good result for the slim device. So if you need the maximum performance from both components, there is no way around the "Turbo" fan setting.

Speakers

There are only two speakers at the front edge of the bottom panel. They can get pretty loud, but there are laptops with much better sound systems. There is no bass, either, so videos are not very enjoyable. The playback of voices on the other hand benefits from clear high tones, and the microphone also works well. This means you are well-suited for conference calls, but we recommend external speakers for a movie night.

The power consumption is modest for a 17-inch device equipped with powerful components. The bulky 230W power adapter is sufficient, because we measure a maximum consumption of around 190 Watts. Depending on the fan profile, the consumption during the stress test will level off at 110 Watts (Auto) and 150 Watts (Turbo), respectively.

Battery Runtime

The 3-cell battery only has a capacity of 57Wh, which is not much for a big 17-inch device. As a result, the battery runtime is not great: Our Wi-Fi test runs for about 6 hours, and around 4.5 hours at the maximum luminance. The load runtime is 1:40 hours, but at reduced performance as we have seen in previous sections. A complete recharge will take 161 minutes (device turned on); 50% of the capacity is available after 45 minutes.
