Asus ROG Flow Z13 in review: Gaming tablet with powerful Alder Lake i9 CPU

Gaming on the go. With the new ROG Flow Z13, Asus introduces a gaming tablet that combines a brand-new Alder Lake Core i9 processor with the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. It also comes with a fast 120 Hz panel and the option to connect an external GPU.

Asus refers to the new ROG Flow Z13 as the most powerful gaming tablet on the market, and a look at the spec sheet definitely supports this statement. Our review sample is equipped with a brand-new Intel Alder Lake Core i9 CPU, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and 16 GB of LPDDR5-5200 RAM. In order to be able to make reasonable use of the components' performance, the manufacturer has implemented vapor-chamber cooling as well as liquid metal on the processor for improved heat transfer. In addition, there's a 13.4-inch 16:10 display with a resolution of 1,920x1,200 pixels, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and G-Sync.

Optionally, there are other models with weaker i7 or i5 CPUs, as well as the normal RTX 3050 or even just the integrated Xe Graphics of the Alder Lake processor. This configuration with the iGPU could definitely be interesting if you don't want to game while on the go, but want to use the external XG Mobile eGPU (Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 or AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT) at home. Our test configuration is available for around 2,100 Euros (~$2,367). There aren't many immediate rivals for the ROG Flow Z13, which is why we also resort to normal laptops with similar components as comparison devices.

Case - A pumped-up Surface Pro

In general, the ROG Flow Z13 is a normal convertible with an integrated kickstand and an attachable keyboard, just like we've seen in the Microsoft Surface Pro for years. However, the Flow Z13 is considerably more massive and heavier. Nevertheless, due to the higher weight, the convertible also looks very premium, and this impression is supported by both the stability and workmanship of the aluminum case. The integrated kickstand, which allows a maximum opening angle of up to 170 degrees, also looks quite high quality. Although the material is very thin here, it doesn't bend when you change the angle. The two hinges are very well adjusted in principle, and there's only a minimum degree of play. Both the volume rocker and the power button (including the fingerprint scanner) are neatly integrated into the case.

The aggressive design language is in line with the ROG laptops, and it also suits a gaming tablet. There's also a small window in the case on the back, which can be illuminated and also supports Aura Sync technology (just like the keyboard backlight). However, this also creates a small hump, which is why the tablet is unable to lay flat on its back and wobbles. The fan grilles on the back have also been implemented as design elements, so they are hardly noticeable. There's a large Republic of Gamers logo on the top, which is flanked by the two fan outlets.

The included keyboard cover also doubles as a cover and protects the display when the device is not in use. The back of the cover 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.

Weighing in at 1.185 kg, the ROG Flow Z13 alone already weighs more than many ultrabooks, such as the Schenker Vision 14 with the RTX 3050 Ti. With the keyboard cover, the weight climbs to a bit more than 1.5 kg, and the package is also almost 2 cm thick. Of course, this still makes it very portable, but you can clearly notice the difference to weaker convertibles like the Surface Pro 8. The 100-watt power adapter adds a bit over 400 grams to the weight.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 4 vs. USB 2.0

The port for the external XG Mobile GPU is located behind a rubber cover.
The port for the external XG Mobile GPU is located behind a rubber cover.

Considering it's a tablet, the available ports are not bad at all. On the left side, there's a USB-C port including Thunderbolt 4 support, as well as the connection for an external graphics card behind a small cover that consists of a USB-C port and a proprietary port with 8 PCIe lanes. A regular USB-A port is on the right side, but it only supports the outdated USB 2.0 standard, which is somewhat hard to understand.

We had problems with the Thunderbolt 4 port in our review sample because we were unable to charge the device via this port, regardless of whether we used the included power adapter or other USB-C power adapters. The operating system only displayed a notification saying that the device was not charging and that the included power adapter should be used. After some research, we discovered that the Thunderbolt 4 port doesn't support charging in German models. We were very surprised about that, because the charging function is actually mandatory for the Thunderbolt 4 certification. We have contacted Asus about this and will update this article accordingly as soon as we receive official feedback.

The microSD slot at the back.

There's a small microSD card reader on the back behind the kickstand, and it's able to fully accommodate memory cards. The card reader is very fast, and we were able to determine a very high maximum transfer rate of over 260 MB/s with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60). This puts the Flow Z13 firmly at the top of the comparison field. Performance was a bit lower when copying data, but the result of over 100 MB/s is still decent.

Communication

Asus integrates a cutting-edge Wi-Fi 6E module from Intel (AX210E), which supports all modern standards including Bluetooth 5.2. Wi-Fi 6E is still a bit problematic in Europe, and you can only get it to work with tricks at the moment, but at least you're optimally equipped for the next few years. The transfer rates in connection with our reference router (Netgear AX12) are very good, and we didn't notice any problems with signal quality during testing, neither with the Wi-Fi 6 router nor with a FritzBox 7490 (Wi-Fi 5). However, there's no integrated LTE or 5G modem available.

Webcam

The ROG Flow Z13 is equipped with two cameras. An 8 MP sensor is found on the back, which can be used to take very decent pictures as long as the exposure is right. Only the 720p sensor (0.9 MP) is available on the front, but the pictures are comparatively good. Of course, there's still much room for improvement here, but we've also seen much worse 720p cameras.

Accessories

Asus ships the ROG Flow Z13 with the keyboard cover by default, but there are otherwise no other accessories included in the attractive packaging. Of course, the XG Mobile eGPU is optionally available, and we already had the chance to test it in combination with the ROG Flow X13. In addition, there's the Asus Pen and various input devices as well as headsets with the ROG branding.

Maintenance

The ROG Flow Z13's case can't be opened by the user, and almost every component is soldered as well. However, there's at least a small maintenance hatch on the back with access to the M.2-2230 SSD that can be replaced. But more on that in the storage section.

Input devices - Wobbly keyboard with Aura Sync

Keyboard

The ROG Flow Z13 comes with a keyboard cover that uses Pogo pins to magnetically attach to the bottom of the tablet as well as to be powered. As with the Surface Pro, the keyboard can be used either flat or at a slight angle (see pictures). The problem here is that the keyboard's material retains the angle a bit, so that the keyboard is slightly lifted from the surface and yields when typing, for example, when you want to use it again in its flat form on a table. This affects typing stability a bit, but that is the norm for such keyboard covers.

The mechanics of the keys themselves are decent, though. The key travel isn't too short (1.7 mm), and several keystrokes are registered simultaneously (N-key rollover). In practice, however, you almost always need to work with the keyboard backlight activated (RGB, one zone, supports Aura Sync), since the contrast between the dark keys and their labels is just not optimal. The keyboard offers the German QWERTZ layout, but some compromises like the single-line Enter key or the small arrow keys have been necessary to achieve this.

The small ClickPad (9.8 x 5.6 cm) offers good gliding properties, and mouse control is also possible without issues, but the small surface is not particularly suitable for gestures. The pad can also be pressed down in the lower area, but this is met with a very loud and cheap-sounding click noise. However, we presume that most users will use an external mouse anyway, especially when gaming. Furthermore, the capacitive touchscreen is still available for everyday use, and it works very well.

Display - Asus offers either Full HD or 4K for the gaming tablet

Asus offers two different 13.4-inch IPS touchscreens in a 16:10 aspect ratio for the ROG Flow Z13. Besides a 4K display (3,840x2,400 pixels, WQUXGA, 60 Hz, 450 nits, P3 color space), you can also choose the Full HD panel (1,920x1,200 pixels, WUXGA), which only covers the smaller sRGB color space but has a slightly higher brightness (500 nits) and a higher refresh rate of 120 Hz. The Full HD resolution also suits the RTX 3050 Ti better, so overall, we think the Full HD panel is a better fit for the gaming tablet.

The subjective image impression is very good, and everything looks very sharp, even at the lower Full HD resolution. Colors also look rich and high-contrast, something that is confirmed by our measurements as well. The maximum brightness is around 515 cd/m² at the center of the screen, but it's "only" 476 cd/m² on average. The black level is slightly elevated at 0.35 cd/m², but this still adds up to a very good contrast ratio of almost 1,500:1. Response times show no issues, and even at full brightness, screen bleeding isn't a problem.

The default refresh rate is 120 Hz when the device is plugged in, but it automatically switches to 60 Hz on battery power. As a result, the screen goes black for about one second when the power adapter is plugged in or unplugged. This can be modified in the Armoury Crate software, where there is an option called "Energy-saving panel". As soon as you deactivate it, the frequency stays at 120 Hz even on battery power. In everyday use, the 120 Hz mode mainly leads to a smoother image impression when scrolling through documents or websites, and it can also be beneficial when gaming.

We analyzed the display with the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer. Out of the box, we notice a slight color tint in grayscales towards green/blue in combination with a slightly too cool color temperature. This doesn't play a major role in everyday use, and you can only recognize it with the naked eye if you work with calibrated displays otherwise. Manufacturers like to use this trick to increase the maximum brightness a bit. Consequently, our calibrated profile (available for free download above) also results in a reduction of the maximum brightness from 515 to 480 cd/m². However, since both the color and grayscale deviations are already very good out of the box, calibration isn't strictly necessary. The Full HD display covers the sRGB color space almost completely, which makes it suitable for editing pictures/videos.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
17.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 11.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 26 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 22 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 65 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The brightness is very high, and it's not reduced on battery power. Nonetheless, reflections are quickly visible on the glossy touchscreen. Especially in very bright environments, content visibility becomes limited as a result. But it should be possible to use the device comfortably in the shade or on cloudy days provided that it's positioned appropriately. The IPS panel offers very stable viewing angles with no color shifts or strong contrast losses.

Performance - The ROG Flow Z13's CPU is overkill

Our review configuration represents the most powerful model of the ROG Flow Z13 and is powered by the new Alder Lake Core i9-12900H  in combination with the dedicated GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, which runs at a maximum of 40 watts (35 watts + 5 watts Dynamic Boost coming from the processor). The package is rounded off by 16 GB of LPDDR5-5200 RAM (dual-channel), and there are currently no models with 32 GB of RAM. We have listed the three base models below, but they can still differ in terms of storage and the built-in display:

Model GZ301ZE GZ301ZC GZ301ZA
CPU Core i9-12900H Core i7-12700H Core i5-12500H
GPU GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (40 watts) GeForce RTX 3050 (40 watts) Iris Xe Graphics
RAM 16 GB LPDDR5 16 GB LPDDR5 16 GB LPDDR5

Installing such a powerful Core i9 CPU in a compact gaming tablet doesn't exactly seem very reasonable to us, especially in combination with the slowest variant of the RTX 3050 Ti. There's certainly a slight imbalance here, and the Core i7 CPU is unlikely to run noticeably slower in the ROG Flow Z13 (same number of cores, but lower Turbo frequency).

 
 

Test conditions

Armoury Crate
Armoury Crate

It's not so easy to find the right test settings, because besides the normal Windows settings, there is also a range of additional energy settings in the preinstalled Armoury Crate software, which also override the Windows energy-saving plan anyway. In addition, there's also the option to completely disable the integrated GPU via the MUX switch, but this requires a reboot. Furthermore, there are various settings for the hybrid graphics. For example, you can configure the dedicated GPU to only be used when the device is plugged in. All in all, there are so many options to adjust the device to your needs, but there's also the risk of getting a bit confused and possibly not using the optimal settings.

We tried all the reasonable combinations and were able to get the best results (somewhat surprisingly) with the regular Windows "Balanced" power plan along with the Windows setting in the Armoury Crate software and the Windows performance slider set to "Best Performance". There might still be updates, but we currently don't see any advantage in the additional energy profiles.

Processor - Core i9-12900H

The new Core i9-12900H from Intel's Alder Lake lineup (12th generation) is one of the fastest mobile chips available on the market today, and it offers a total of 14 cores (6 performance cores with Hyper-Threading and 8 efficient cores) with 20 threads as well as a maximum clock rate of up to 5.0 GHz. You would probably expect such a CPU in high-end gaming laptops and certainly not in a compact gaming tablet. The nominal TDP is still 45 watts, but Asus hasn't limited consumption in practice, and we see consumptions of up to 114 watts (!!!) in the first 30 seconds of multi-core tests, after which consumption levels off at 55 watts. This means that during short load peaks in particular (and also in many benchmarks), the ROG Flow Z13 offers an excellent performance. However, the tablet always uses the internal battery for a brief moment because, as we will see later, the power adapter is only able to supply a maximum of 103 watts.

Asus ROG Flow X13 GV301QH AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS: Ø1873 (1728.01-2089.32)

Consequently, the review sample is actually always at the top of the comparison field in the CPU benchmarks. In the Cinebench loop, you can clearly see that power consumption has already settled at 55 watts in the third run, so performance is more than 20% lower compared to the first run. Nevertheless, the Intel chip is still competitive with 55 watts, and it performs on par with the current Ryzen 9 5000 chips found in the Asus Zephyrus G14 or the Razer Blade 14, which are operated at 75 and 80 watts, respectively, in those devices. The current Tiger Lake H35 chips, which are still used in many compact laptops at the moment, have absolutely no chances here with their 4 cores.

The high continuous consumption of 55 watts is also good news for users of the XG Mobile eGPU, since this means that the CPU will not become a bottleneck. However, power consumption is significantly limited to 30 watts on battery power, but this still enables very good benchmark results. Nevertheless, it has to be said clearly that the Core i7-12700H (same number of cores, slightly lower clock rate) would have achieved almost the same performance in this case (especially as soon as the 55-watt limit kicks in), and that the Core i9 wouldn't provide a noticeable advantage. Additional benchmarks are available in our respective CPU Benchmarks article.

System performance

The ROG Flow Z13 is a very powerful system, and this is also confirmed by the good benchmark results. However, we experienced minor stutters from time to time during testing, such as when opening the Windows settings. We don't know the reason for this yet, but it doesn't seem to be a problem with the graphics-switching function. It might have something to do with the Armoury Crate software, or possibly with the new hybrid structure of the processor cores. Nevertheless, the stutters only occurred very rarely in our test and weren't really a problem because of this. Otherwise, the subjective performance impression is very good as well.

Storage

The compact M.2-2230 SSD can be replaced.
The compact M.2-2230 SSD can be replaced.

Asus has chosen to use a compact M.2-2230 SSD, which is also very easy to access through the small hatch on the back. Despite the small size, this is a PCIe 4.0 SSD, which comes from Micron in our case and offers a storage capacity of 1 TB. 875 GB of this is still available after the first boot. The benchmark results are by no means bad, and there are no issues in everyday use or gaming, but the maximum sequential transfer rates are more in line with fast PCIe 3.0 x4 drives. In exchange, the Micron SSD delivers a very good performance in the 4K tests. Further SSD benchmarks are available here.
