Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH

84.7% Asus ROG Flow X13 in review: Gaming convertible with an AMD Ryzen 9 5980H and an optional RTX 3080 | Notebookcheck
The Asus Flow X13 is an ultra-compact 13-inch convertible with a high-resolution display. With the optional display dock, equipped with an Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 GPU, the Flow X13, together with the AMD Ryzen 9 5980H CPU integrated into the laptop, would theoretically even make desktop computers look old. Due to the lack of availability, we will only review the Flow X13 without the eGPU for now.

88% Asus ROG Flow X13 with XG Mobile review: Almost the best of both worlds
Source: CNet English
Many people like their work laptops tiny and light and their gaming laptops screamingly fast and crammed with the latest technology. Sadly, the laws of physics conspire to keep us from getting both in a single device, but Asus gives it a shot with the combination of its ROG Flow X13, a 13-inch, 2.9-pound two-in-one laptop, and the XG Mobile, a compact external-GPU-plus-dock combo device. The power pairing of the new eight-core AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS processor in the laptop and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 mobile GPU in the external module combine to deliver a multifaceted, fast system that's imperfect, but still much more than the sum of its parts.

Asus ROG Flow X13 Review: This laptop breaks all the rules
Source: Good Gear Guide English
With so many different facets to the Asus ROG Flow X13, there is a lot to unpack. On the performance tip, it’s obviously stupidly fast, especially when you consider how little it weighs. Add the XG Mobile, and you have gaming performance that can run with big 17-inch gaming laptops.

ASUS ROG Flow X13 (GV301) review – a revolutionary device that will shake up the laptop world
Source: Laptop Media English
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get our hands on the ROG XG Mobile external GPU, and we will definitely give our best to snatch it and update the review. Nevertheless, even without the added graphics power, the ROG Flow X13 (GV301) is a remarkable device. We are positive that it will change the way we look at convertible laptops, and not only because of the decent gaming capabilities, but mostly due to the fact, that it has outstanding CPU performance.

ASUS ROG Flow X13 Review: Not Your Average Gaming Laptop
Source: Lowyat.net English
So there you have it. At its best, the ASUS ROG Flow X13 is what a convertible laptop aspires to be; it’s versatile enough to hold the role of a low-powered gaming machine when needed, and the role of a day-to-day work machine. At its perceived worst, however, the battery consumption is less than stellar and I sincerely think that ASUS could’ve have done a better job at optimising it further. That, and perhaps forgo the 100W envelope and simply fitted it with a beefier GPU.

Yet the Flow X13 straddles two worlds without dominating either. Gaming laptops are naturally better at what they do through sheer size and cooling whilst true thin-and-lights have exceptional battery life alongside solid performance.

Asus ROG Flow X13 Review: Don’t Let the Smallness Fool You
Source: PC Quest English
At the end of the day, ROG Flow X13 is a nice and interesting option for those seeking both entertainment and portability during work hours. And you can, of course, pack the XG Mobile eGPU as well. I mean come on, it only weights 1 kg, it’s not like you’re carrying those old school bricks around anymore.

Ultimately, the Flow X13 is best for people who want a compact, well-designed notebook that offers as much CPU power as possible while remaining perfectly adequate for 1080p gaming. The option to release the beast in the form of the XG Mobile should only sweeten the deal; we'll update this review as soon as we test it.

90% Asus ROG Flow X13 review: When AMD Ryzen Met Nvidia's 30-series
Source: Laptop Mag English
Asus has done it again. They’ve changed the definition of what a gaming laptop is and they’ve made me want to drop over $3K to buy into this new idea. By itself, the Asus ROG Flow X13 is a compelling laptop. It’s very rare to see a 13-inch gaming system and even rarer for it to be a 2-in-1. But Asus didn’t stop there, they threw a high-powered AMD Ryzen 9 processor into the mix and even outfitted the notebook with its own discrete Nvidia GPU. It’s compelling, not $3,299 compelling, but compelling nonetheless.

80% Asus ROG Flow X13 Review: A Game-Ready 2-In-1
Source: The Verge English
Reviewers throw this phrase around to describe all kinds of laptops, but it’s very true here: in attempting to be a jack of all trades, this laptop is a master of none. And while the Flow X13 is a top-notch convertible, and an impressive achievement from Asus, it also costs over $3,000. If you need both a high-performance office laptop and a high-performance gaming laptop in one, and you have that kind of change to throw around, I won’t stop you. But those who primarily need one or the other should be better able to fulfill their needs with something more affordable, whether it’s a high-end 2-in-1 or a portable gaming rig.

ASUS ROG Flow X13 2-in-1 gaming ultrabook and XG Mobile eGPU – first impressions

In conclusion, I’m highly stoked about the ROG Flow X13. If properly priced and if Asus manage to properly balance the performance, thermals, and noise levels, this is going to be the new performance-ultraportable king and unmatched by anything else available right now.

Asus ROG Flow X13 gives a thin-and-light laptop an external graphics punch
Source: CNet English
It's a clever solution, and hopefully the first of many variations on the thin-and-light gaming laptop. But this one won't come cheap. It will initially ship only as a bundle, and the XG Mobile will cost about as much as the laptop when it ships separately, though there will be less expensive a step-down model. You can preorder the bundle now on Asus' site for $3,200. (International prices aren't available, but that's about £2,350 or AU$4,140.)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


R9 5980HS: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 3 cores clocked at 3.3 to 4.8 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 8 CUs clocked at up to 2100? MHz. Compared to the 5980HX (up to 54 W), the 5980HS is configured to a TDP of 35W and therefore suited for smaller laptops.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.40":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.36 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


87.37%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
