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.
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.

80% ASUS ROG Flow X16 review: a gaming laptop with a twist
Source: 91mobiles English
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.

Asus ROG Flow X16 GV601- 2-in-1 gaming laptop (Ryzen 9 6900HS, 3070Ti, mini LED)
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.

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.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review (2022 GV601RM model- AMD Ryzen 9, RTX 3060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.
