Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow Z13 GZ301ZC-LD027W

ASUS ROG Flow Z13 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS ROG Flow Z13 is a testament to how technology has evolved. It packs a lot of power inside this small form factor that you can easily use on the go. There aren’t a lot of compromises when it comes to this laptop at this size and it’s hard to find a competition that allows you to do so much with such a small device. Priced at PHP 99,995, the ASUS ROG Flow Z13 gives you a lot for the price, especially against competitors who offer bulky laptops for around the same price. The XG Mobile meanwhile with the RTX 3080 is priced at PHP 89,995. With the versatility this device allows you, you can expect to pay a premium, but in my opinion? It’s all worth it to have a device that can do so much in such a small form factor. As they say, to be at the forefront of technology comes at a price, in this case, it’s all well worth it. You can check it out right here.

90% ROG Flow Z13 Review: A mobile device built around a gamer's lifestyle
Source: Hardware Zone English
Want to catch your favourite Netflix show on the couch? Fold the detachable keyboard to the back or remove it completely and place it on your lap. Do you love mixing EDM tracks? Connect a DJ controller to it and the Flow Z13’s touchscreen and kickstand allow you to turn it into a mixer. Oh, you really want to play high-end games too? Guess what, you can connect an ROG XG Mobile eGPU that’s powered by a GeForce RTX 3080 (the eGPU is sold separately) and turn it into a gaming powerhouse. In fact, the Flow Z13 is a great device for cloud-gaming services (hello, StarHub's GeForceNow). I truly considered the ROG Flow Z13 one of the gaming company’s best innovations yet. Granted, the ROG Flow Z13 is also arguably ahead of its time. But if anything, it offers a wondrous peek at what the future of “mobile” gaming could possibly look like. And I got to say I like what I am seeing.

Asus ROG Flow Z13 follow-up review – Iris Xe (GZ301ZA model), eGPU ROG XG Mobile performance
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Bottom point, the ROG Flow Z13 is an excellent match for an eGPU. Its advantages are the powerful CPU performance paired with an excellent thermal module that allows for good temperatures and quiet fans. The experience with the XG Mobile, on the other hand, can be improved. I didn’t get to properly test this last year, but having spent time with it now, I’m not happy with the internal GPU temperatures or the fact that the chip ends up thermally throttled in gaming sessions and longer GPU-heavy workloads. Hopefully, the 2022 XG Mobile update changes things, as it’s a slightly larger format with perhaps improved cooling capacity. However, if you’re planning on running your games and workloads on an external monitor and not sending the signal back to the 13-inch display of the Z13, you could also consider a Thunderbolt eGPU enclosure with this device. That way, you’re not tied to the few options available with the XG Mobile and its unconvincing cooling module, and also get to place a full-power graphics chip in your eGPU unit.

82% Geek Review: ASUS ROG Flow Z13
Source: Geek Culture English
The ROG Flow Z13 is a tablet-laptop hybrid that gives a gaming device the form factor of a productivity device. The strengths of a portable device like this is multi-fold, though some care should be taken, given that its hardware far exceeds the capacity of the battery. Still, if one can overlook this one bugbear, this is a decent choice for a work laptop while on the go, and for gaming when plugged in.

Asus ROG Flow Z13 hands-on review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m excited about a tablet of all things. It’s hard not to be when it has such powerful specs. Now is the Asus ROG Flow Z13 going to be the portable gaming solution to end all our problems? No. While the Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU will allow it to play older titles at lower settings, in order to truly unlock the power, you’ll definitely need the XG Station, which makes it markedly less grab-and-go. Still, what Asus has accomplished with the Flow Z13 is seriously encouraging, particularly with the design, keyboard and display. I’m just hoping it won’t cost an arm, leg, soul and first-borne babe to play around with this intriguing piece of tech. Either way, I’m excited to get a consumer model and get to testing.

Comment

Model:

The latest from Asus is none other than the ROG Flow Z13. This laptop is a normal convertible with an integrated kickstand along with an attachable keyboard. It is something quite similar to the ones seen in Microsoft Surface Pro for years. However, it is worth noting that the Flow Z13 is considerably more massive and heavier. Nevertheless, due to its higher weight, the convertible tends to look rather premium, and this impression is supported by both the stability and workmanship of the aluminium case. As for the integrated kickstand, it allows a maximum opening angle of up to 170 degrees. While the material might be very thin, it does not bend when the angle is changed though. It is also worth mentioning that the two hinges are very well adjusted in principle with only a slight degree of play.

Apart from that, both the volume rocker and the power button are neatly integrated into the case. This also includes the fingerprint scanner. The overall design language of this model is definitely in line with the ROG laptops series, falling perfectly in the category of a gaming tablet. In addition, there is a small window on the back of the case which can be illuminated and supports Aura Sync technology (just like the keyboard backlight). However, this tends to create a small hump, which is the reason for the tablet being unable to lay flat on its back and wobbles. On the other hand, the fan grilles on the back have also been implemented as design elements, so they are hardly noticeable. There is also a large Republic of Gamers logo on the top, which is flanked by the two fan outlets.

As far as its attachable keyboard is concerned, it doubles up as a cover and protects the display when the device is not in use. At the back of the cover, it has some sort of velour finish, which feels nice to the touch and provides a good grip, but also picks up dust and dirt very quickly. In terms of its display, Asus offers two different 13.4-inch IPS touchscreens in a 16:10 aspect ratio for the ROG Flow Z13. In a nutshell, the subjective image impression is quite good, and everything looks very sharp, even at the lower Full HD resolution. The ROG Flow Z13 comes with three CPU options which includes Core i9-12900H, Core i7-12700H and Core i5-12500H paired with either GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or Iris Xe Graphics GPU options. Mostly the models offer 16GB of RAM each. It comes with 1TB of storage. As for its battery, this laptop has been equipped with a 56Wh battery. Overall, it is a good gaming laptop to be owned, depending on the need and preference of the user.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU: Mid-range gaming laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA107 chip. Offers 2048 shaders and is offered in different TGP (power consumption) variants from 35 to 80 Watt with different clock speeds and therefore performance.

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

i7-12700H: On Alder-Lake based mobile CPU with 6 performance cores and 8 efficient cores. The performance cores offer hyper threading, leading to 20 threads that can be processed. The CPU clocks from 1.7 to 4.7 GHz and supports vPro.» 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.

1.18 kg:

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

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).


86.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
