Asus VivoBook 15 Pro OLED review: Affordable multimedia laptop with a high performance

Powerful cooling and 1080p OLED. With the new VivoBook 15 Pro, Asus presents an affordable multimedia laptop that combines a fast Ryzen processor with the GeForce RTX 3050. In addition, the bright 1080p OLED display impresses with luminous and vibrant images.
Andreas Osthoff, 👁 Andreas Osthoff (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the new VivoBook Pro models, Asus offers multimedia laptops with a good price-performance ratio and now optionally also with a 1080p OLED display. The user has the choice between AMD and Intel CPUs, as well as between integrated GPUs or dedicated graphics cards from Nvidia. Our test unit combines a current Ryzen 5 5600H processor from AMD with the dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU and 16 GB of RAM. In addition, there is also a 512 GB PCIe SSD and the optional 1080p OLED display. Our specific configuration is a Campus model without Windows for 999 Euros (~$1155), but regular customers will pay 1199 Euros (~$1387) for this model (incl. Windows).

Case - The VivoBook Pro uses plastic

The relatively low entry-level price of the VivoBook 15 Pro becomes easily apparent in the plastic case. While it looks good visually and we also like the color of our test unit (Quiet Blue), you can notice the differences to metal cases such as that of the (significantly more expensive) Dell XPS 15 in terms of the stability and haptics. The palm rests can be pressed down a bit, and when opening the display lid there are usually some creaking noises. The lid itself leaves a better impression. Even though it can still be warped slightly, there are no creaking noises and we are unable to provoke image errors by pressing down in some spots. On the other hand, the hinge, which has a maximum opening angle of about 135 degrees, could be better adjusted, since some bouncing of the display cannot be avoided, for example when changing the opening angle.

The two side bezels are very small and help in presenting a modern appearance. Asus also uses other design elements such as the raised 3D logo on the lid and the striped pattern on the Enter key. The base unit is not very susceptible to fingerprints, and only the lid has to be cleaned more often.

The test unit is one of the most compact and at barely 1.7 kg (~3.75 lb) also lightest laptops in our comparison group. You also have to add almost another 450 grams (~1 lb) for the charger.

Equipment - Asus made some cuts in the connections

While at first glance all the important connections including USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI are available, their standards are outdated. The USB-C connection only supports the 3.2 Gen 1 standard and also cannot be used for video output or charging, and two of the three USB-A connections only support the old 2.0 standard. HDMI is also outdated at 1.4b, so it cannot drive an external 4k monitor with 60 Hz. Even though some models offer a fingerprint sensor in the Power button, our test unit does not include it.

SD Card Reader

The VivoBook offers a microSD card reader, but it is not particularly fast. With our AV Pro V60 UHS-II reference card, the transfer rates are lower than 40 MB/s, which is significantly lower than the usual 70-80 MB/s that were achieved by the competitors.

Communication

Replaceable WLAN module
Replaceable WLAN module

Asus uses a MediaTek WLAN module (MT7921, 2x2) that would theoretically support the fast WLAN 6 standard (802.11ax). However, in our tests with the Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 reference router, the laptop simply refused to connect via WLAN 6, using only WLAN 5 (802.11ac), which is also the reason why the transfer rates remained below what should be possible. On the other hand, the WLAN signal was stable and inconspicuous.

Webcam

The webcam of the VivoBook includes a mechanical cover, with a red spot showing that the camera is locked. As expected, the image quality of the 720p sensors is not good, and even in good light conditions the colors appear quite pale and the contents aren't really sharp either.

Maintenance

The bottom of the case is secured with Torx screws (T6) and can be removed easily. But since the working memory of the VivoBook 15 Pro is soldered in, the maintenance options are limited to the M.2-2280 slot of the SSD and the WLAN module. You can also clean the fans.

Input Devices - A keyboard with a number pad

Asus uses a keyboard with a 1.35-mm key stroke and dedicated number block on the right side in the VivoBook 15 Pro. The typing experience is decent, and the typing on the letter keys is also comfortably quiet. Only the larger keys such as the Enter and Space keys clatter a bit. The Enter key, which unfortunately only occupies a single row, continues the grooved pattern of the display lid, which makes it easy to feel. For dark surroundings, there is also a white background illumination that can be adjusted in three steps. 

The ClickPad offers good sliding characteristics, and at 13 x 7.5 cm (~5.1 x 3 in) is very wide. We did not encounter any problems during our testing, and the mouse control worked flawlessly. As in other laptops of this price range, only the clicking noises were fairly loud.

Display - 1080p AMOLED from Samsung

Viewing angle stability
Viewing angle stability

Asus uses a 15.6-inch Samsung AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD) in our test unit, but a regular IPS panel is also offered. Thanks to the low black value and its resulting extremely high contrast ratio, the subjective image quality of the OLED panel is very good. Compared to the regular IPS panels, black color appears really black and the colors are also very vibrant. The VivoBook 15 Pro has a real advantage compared to the competitors with IPS displays here. 

In our analysis with the CalMAN software and X-Rite i1 Pro 2, the panel with the label "SDC4161" achieves a brightness of almost 400 cd/m² throughout, with only very low variations. At 99%, the brightness distribution is almost perfect. These values are even above those of the OLED panel in the XPS 15. The viewing angle stability is also excellent. Although you can see a slightly blue tint from some specific angles, this is normal for OLED panels.

Another advantage of the OLED display are the extremely fast response times, which also makes it very well-suited for gaming. However, even this panel is not completely without its problems, since we are able to measure PWM at a frequency of only 60 Hz starting from a brightness of 60% or less. This could lead to problems for some users.

To prevent burning in of image content, Asus offers several functions, such as pixel shifting, which is not apparent in practice. The task bar can be hidden automatically, and the screen saver is activated after 30 minutes by default. All these settings can be deactivated in the preinstalled MyAsus app.

In the state of delivery, the panel is already adjusted well and there is no colored tint. The color deviations compared to the DCI P3 reference color space are very low. Only the deviation of cyan color is still above the important target of 3. With a calibration (the profile is available for free download above), we are able to further improve the DeltaE 2000 deviations slightly (although the cyan outlier remains), but this isn't really necessary. Thanks to the complete coverage of the DCI P3 color space, video and image processing is also possible on this device.

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
3.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.6 ms rise
↘ 1.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
3.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.6 ms rise
↘ 1.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.6 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 detected 60.24 Hz ≤ 60 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 60.24 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 60 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 60.24 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21103 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The display surface is highly reflective, which also impacts using the device in bright surroundings. On a bright and sunny day, you can hardly use the device outdoors, since constant reflections become a hindrance.

Performance - AMD Ryzen meets GeForce RTX

Our VivoBook 15 Pro test unit uses a current AMD Ryzen 5000 processor (45-Watt class) in combination with a dedicated GeForce RTX-3050 graphics card from Nvidia. The MyAsus app offers various performance profiles that have an impact on the performance of both the processor and the graphics card.

Performance mode CPU load GPU load combined CPU/GPU load
Whisper Mode 65W -> 45W 35W CPU: 15W, GPU: 35W
Standard Mode 65W -> 54W 40W CPU: 25W, GPU: 40W
Performance Mode 65W -> 54W 50W CPU: 35W, GPU: 50W

In general, we ran the following benchmarks and measurements using the preset Standard Mode. However, in some categories we also look at the effect of the other two modes. Particularly the Whisper Mode might be really interesting for everyday tasks and even gaming, but more on this later.

Processor - Ryzen 5 5600H (Zen 3)

Asus uses the current AMD Ryzen 5 5600H processor with 6 cores (12 threads). Thanks to the high TDP values, it delivers a very good performance and in the Standard as well as the Performance Mode, the performance also remains stable even under constant load. As expected, the competitors with 8-core CPUs have an advantage, but due to its bad performance development under longer load, the XPS 15 isn't even that far ahead. Overall, the performance of the Ryzen 5 is completely sufficient in most cases, even for more demanding tasks. 

The Intel model of the VivoBook 15 Pro uses the Core i7-11370H with 4 cores (8 threads), which we already tested with similar TDP values in the MateBook 14s. In the multi-core tests, the i7 ends up behind the Ryzen 5 by about 30%, but in the single-core tests it has an advantage of slightly more than 10%. Since the Ryzen processor is more efficient due to its modern 7-nm manufacturing process, it is the better choice overall.

In battery operation, the CPU performance is limited to about 30 watts (even in the optional Performance Mode), but this only becomes noticeable in the multi-core tests with a decrease of about 15%. You can find additional CPU benchmarks here.
