Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301RA-LJ011W

Bottom point, while we can’t draw proper conclusions on the gaming capabilities of this Flow X13 + XG Mobile combo based on our test unit, I must warn you about the high CPU and GPU temperatures you should expect with these two. With the laptop sitting on the desk, expect 95C on the CPU and 85+C on the GPU with a properly running Turbo mode that allows the GPU to run closer to its designed max power (150W for this 3080 variant, 165W for the 2022 Radeon RX 6850 XT model). Bumping up the laptop in order to improve the airflow into the fans will have a positive impact on the CPU temperatures, but there’s no way to improve the GPU temperatures. I will also add that the ROG Flow X13 is most likely going to get USB4 support in the next couple of months, and that should allow compatibility with other eGPU enclosures beside the XG Mobile, something AMD devices did not offer so far. It’s too early to tell how current Thunderbolt eGPUs are going to work on USB4, but I have some hopes they will do well.

AMD Radeon 680M: Integrated graphics card in the Ryzen 6000 mobile series APUs based on the RDNA2 architecture with 12 CUs (= 768 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 2.4 GHz.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
R7 6800HS: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 3+ cores clocked at 3.2 to 4.7 GHz and a RDNA2 graphics adapter with 12 CUs clocked at up to 2,200 MHz. The HS variant offers a 10 W reduced TDP and therefore a lower sustained performance than the H version.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
