89.5% Asus ROG Flow X16 laptop review: 2-in-1 gamer with mini-LED | Notebookcheck
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.
Asus ROG Flow X16 Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Techspot English
Asus has taken risks with the ROG Flow X16, and in several departments those have paid off. The ROG Flow X16's sturdy, good-looking exterior works well as a laptop and as a tented screen. Switch to tablet mode and it's usable for creative work and even as a reading and web-browsing device if you can stomach its size. The X16's RTX 3070 Ti graphics core is a solid performer 2560 x 1600, and the Mini LED display delivers incredible SDR and HDR performance that makes games and movies pop from the panel. This Asus ROG laptop suffers a little when it comes to value. Its $2,499 price isn't terrible, but if you're happy to eschew the convertible design and Mini LED display you'll find this speed for around $2,000 elsewhere. You'll even find RTX 3080 Ti laptops at less than $2,750. The Asus also comes with an RTX 3060, but it's still pretty pricey considering its internals. The future also undermines the X16. If you're willing to wait a few months, the Flow's 2023 version will arrive with RTX 4070 graphics cores and faster Intel processors. Razer is also deploying 15.6" and 16" laptops with updated internals. All those rigs will probably be more expensive than the $2,500 ROG Flow X16, but you'll get more bang for your buck. No matter which year's vintage you choose, the Asus ROG Flow X16 delivers a stunning screen, impressive form factor and good gaming performance, you'll just need to decide if you're prefer that over the improved connectivity and even better speeds that more conventional devices offer.

80% Asus ROG Flow X16 Review: Hulk without the bulk
Source: The Times of India English
I am usually not a fan of slim and lightweight gaming laptops for the sole reason – they compromise on performance a lot. The Asus ROG Flow X16 changes that conception – it is brilliantly fast and capable, all while flaunting that lean chassis. Yes, it runs hot all the time but the gains are massive in areas that matter. In fact, I doubt if most creators and gamers will ever need to invest in the ROG XG Mobile unit, if you pick up the top-end variant with RTX 3070Ti and Ryzen 9 processor. At Rs. 2.8 lakhs, the Asus ROG Flow X16 in its top trim is eye watering expensive. For this price, you can get several conventional gaming laptops with RTX 3080 GPU from Asus and Acer. Creators can even consider the Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch with the M1 Pro chip, where the raw performance is simply unbridled. However, none of these laptops are as versatile as the ROG Flow X16, which offers a Mini LED display, top-notch performance, a convertible laptop form factor, and the benefit of the Windows ecosystem. If you are spending between ₹2-3 lakhs, this ROG Flow X16 is worth checking out.

80% Asus ROG Flow X16 review: too good to be true?
Source: Stuff TV English
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.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

81% Asus ROG Flow X16 Review: Flexible Big-Screen Gaming
Source: CNet English
This is a non-standard take on a gaming laptop, so the usual calculations about price, performance and features may not fully apply. If you're looking for a basic mainstream gaming laptop with an Nvidia 3060 card, this ain't it. If you like the idea of a gaming hybrid that can fold into a kiosk mode and work with a gamepad, that's something almost no other gaming laptop can do. If you're especially interested in the XG Mobile as an add-on device that can work across different types of Asus computers, the X16 is a key part of that ecosystem and one of only a handful of ways to get that kind of modular performance.

ASUS ROG Flow X16 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS ROG Flow X16 is a near perfect laptop as I said earlier, the only cons I found were very nitpick-y quirks such as the device getting hot at certain spots when under load or the fan noise getting pretty loud (which do note is only noticeable in a quiet environment). Aside from that, the ROG Flow X16 just impresses. The laptop has a beautiful display, a great combination of power and portability, and a design that other laptops would drool for. Again, currently, I’d nominate the ASUS ROG Flow X16 as my laptop of the year so far. At its price point of PHP 164,995, I’d say it eakes out every single peso you’d spend on this laptop, it’s that good. So if you’re looking for a no compromise, media, creation, gaming, and portable laptop, the ASUS ROG Flow X16 should be at the top of your list.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review: A pricey game changer
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus ROG Flow X16 is a spectacular big screen ultraportable — a convertible, adorned with a subtle aesthetic, paired with uncompromising power that refines how you play games on-the-go.. A mesmerizing screen, strong battery life and decent port selection complete the package, resulting in a system that is fantastic for both work and play. But things do heat up fast under strenuous conditions, and all of this potential comes at a steep price when compared to other similarly specced laptops. Trust me. If you can afford the luxury, you will not be disappointed.

The convertible form factor is a major selling point of the ROG Flow X16, but to me, a 16-inch tablet isn't necessarily that useful. Instead, what makes this series my favorite all-purpose ultraportable of this generation is the balance of uncompromised features, excellent performance, fair temperatures for this class, and quiet fan noise levels that are offered here on the Balanced mode, which no other ultraportable that I've tested can match. These don't come cheap, though, so expect to pay a premium for the X16s over the regular clamshell Zephyrus ultraportables.

The ASUS ROG Flow X16 isn’t one that has mainstream appeal but its relatively unique design would attract a lot of people to it. The biggest question is whether you’d rather have the versatility or focus on maximizing performance given its price. If you do get it, I’m sure it will serve you well as it’s a well-rounded machine.

89.7% The slim Asus ROG Flow X16 laptop review: A powerful, 16-inch gaming workstation 2-in-1 with a touchscreen display | Notebookcheck
Last year, the thin ROG Flow X16 was our first gaming laptop which came with a mini-LED display. Visually, nothing much has changed with the 2-in-1.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review (2023 GV601VI model – i9, RTX 4070)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The ROG Flow X16 remains one of the best portable all-purpose laptops that you can buy today. The 2-in-1 format with a touch display, the awesome mini LED panel, and the balanced performance/cooling design are its primary differentiators over the other options out there. But you're paying a premium for these, and there are some particularities that you'd best understand and accept before going with one of these Flows as your daily driver.

ASUS ROG Flow X16 (GV601, 2023) review – the most powerful convertible on the market
Source: Laptop Media English
As it turns out, convertibles can make for very good gaming laptops. Who would have thought? Well, obviously ASUS, because they made this gorgeous, aggressive, yet elegant piece of hardware. Its processor and graphics card work as intended, providing a ton of performance. Currently, there is no title on the planet that won’t work at max settings and native resolution on this laptop’s maxed-out configuration. What comes as a negative bonus here is the price – but sometimes beautiful things cost a fortune. This is more often seen in single-channel RAM modifications. Thankfully, there are two SODIMM slots, which work with DDR5 RAM and support 64GB in dual-channel mode. You even get two M.2 PCIe x4 slots for Gen 4 SSDs. So currently, there are no obvious competitors to this notebook. Unfortunately, this means that ASUS can do whatever it wants with the pricing of this product. However, if you can afford to get one, the ROG Flow X16 (GV601, 2023) will not disappoint you.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review (2023 GV601VI model – i9, RTX 4070)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The ROG Flow X16 remains one of the best portable all-purpose laptops that you can buy today, and pretty much without a direct-tier alternative even in 2023. The 2-in-1 format with a touch display, the awesome mini LED panel, and the balanced performance/cooling design are its primary differentiators over the other options out there. But the solid build quality and excellent ergonomics, the uncompromised IO, the punchy speakers, the overall performance capabilities, and even the fair battery life are also strong selling points for this series. At the same time, though, this Flow demands a premium over the clamshell Asus ROG Zephyrus lineups, and is only available with mid-tier GPU specs. That means the top-specced 2023 generation is pretty much on par in gaming and GPU capabilities with the top-tier 2022 model, and that might not suffice for some of you. Hence, a 4080 configuration would have addressed this part. But thing is, if performance is what you’re primarily after, you’re most likely better off with something else anyway.

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.
