ASUS Vivobook Ultra A512 review - Slim, thin and light value-priced laptop for the masses
Source: Tech Nave English
In conclusion, the ASUS Vivobook Ultra A512 offers plenty of features in a slim and thin package that should suit most desktop replacement purposes like a student or professional (perhaps an accountant who likes fingerprint security and a built-in numeric keypad?). That being said, it isn’t really that premium, not suited for road warriors due to the short battery life or for the more hardcore gamers.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 vs HP Pavilion 15-cs2010TX: Battle of the budget ultrabooks
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Let’s not forget that the ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 also comes with 4 distinct yet vibrant colors. It comes in my favorite Coral Crush, the sleek Peacock Blue, Slate Grey, and the very reflective Transparent Silver. The HP Pavilion 15-cs2010TX comes with only one color – silver.

70% [Review] Asus VivoBook Ultra A512 – Colourfully Chic
Source: Hitech Century English
As it stands, the Asus VivoBook Ultra A512 fulfills its aspirations of being an affordable workhorse notebook and features an excellent display and a decent processor though this is tempered by the need for more RAM, a plasticky chassis and middling battery life. If you are on the hunt for an affordable workhorse notebook that costs less than RM3,000 and can live with its modest foibles, the VivoBook Ultra A512 is right up your alley.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. 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).


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

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i3:

i3-8145U: Whiskey Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The two cores are clocked between 2.1 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

1.67 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

1.8 kg:


85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
