Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow X16 GV601RW-M5082W
1,100 nits of real HDR gaming for the first time thanks to mini-LED in a laptop: Asus' ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch convertible that remains permanently cool despite its compact design and 140 watts of power, thus performing better than other upper-class notebooks while also remaining quieter.

The Asus ROG Flow X16 has a slick, impressive design that enables loads of gaming versatility. The hybrid form factor is underpinned with powerful internals, a great keyboard, and great screen and speaker quality. There’s no denying the Flow’s quality, but it’s not perfect: the display could be a bit better, the chassis could be cooler and quieter and connectivity could be improved. And you’ll certainly get more gaming power if you spend similar cash on a conventional laptop. This does mean that the Asus ROG Flow X16 occupies a luxurious niche in the laptop market and that most people would get more value elsewhere. But if you do want a versatile, slick gaming hybrid, this should be at the top of your list.

At its price point, the Flow X16 goes up against laptops from ASUS’ own stable of products like the aforementioned Strix Scar 15, and others like MSI’s GE76 Raider (review). However, the unique MiniLED screen, the relatively thin form factor without compromising on performance, incredible speakers and a good battery backup, all make the ROG Flow X16 the laptop to beat this year.

As far as I can tell at this time, the Flow X16 is a potentially popular addition to the ROG lineup. Its main selling points are the format, the screen options, the powerful specs for the class, and the unique thermal module that should allow for solid performance with lower fan noise levels than other designs. However, the overall performance/thermals/noise-levels trifecta is going to play a crucial role in determining the overall worth of this series in comparison to the clamshell Zephyrus models, alongside pricing and availability. I’m looking forward to spending more time with this for the review, and sharing my findings with you. For now, that’s about it for this short first look at the 2022 Asus ROG FLow X16 GV601 series. Let me hear your impressions and feedback on this lineup down below, in the comments section.
