Asus VivoBook 15X OLED M3504 Laptop Review: Capable daily driver with AMD Ryzen Barcelo-R and OLED

Zen 3-ception. The Asus VivoBook 15X OLED M3504 is powered by an AMD Barcelo-R Ryzen 5 7530U APU, which is a re-refresh of the 2021 Zen 3 Cezanne architecture. Nevertheless, the VivoBook 15X continues to rely on the series' winning formula: adequate performance with OLED displays that do not punch a hole in the wallet.
Asus VivoBook 15X OLED

The VivoBook lineup is geared towards those looking for an affordable multimedia and productivity solution. Asus has progressively improved its daily-driver VivoBook series over the years, and the majority of the portfolio now features OLED panels. However, this year's VivoBook's offerings seen more iterative than innovative.

Previously, the VivoBook 15X featured H-series chips such as the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H. This year, Asus is offering several VivoBook 15X laptops with Intel 13th gen Raptor Lake-P and AMD Ryzen 7030U processors while Intel 13th gen H45 CPUs are offered only with the VivoBook 14X and VivoBook 16X series.

We now have with us the new Asus VivoBook 15X M3504. This laptop is powered by an AMD Barcelo-R Ryzen 5 7530U processor with integrated Radeon RX Vega 7 graphics.

Our VivoBook 15X unit also features a 15.6-inch 1080p 60 Hz Samsung OLED panel, 16 GB DDR4-3200 RAM, a 512 GB SSD, Wi-Fi 6E, and a 50 WHr battery. Currently, this configuration retails at a discounted price of ₹66,990 (US$813) in India. A VivoBook 15X K3504 variant with Intel Alder Lake-P is also available starting from ₹79,990.

In this review, we take the new VivoBook 15X OLED for a spin and see how well the re-refresh of the two-year-old Cezanne Zen 3 architecture holds up in 2023.

Case: Lightweight plastic chassis with some flex

Asus offers the VivoBook 15X in Cool Silver and Indie Black color options. The new VivoBook 15X M3504 feels similar to previous VivoBooks we've tested. The construction is primarily plastic with the exception of the metal lid that sports the distinctive VivoBook logo and can be laid flat at a 180° angle.

The 1.7 kg body weight is uniformly distributed, giving the impression of lightness. The lid can be opened with one finger. Under strain, however, there is noticeable flex in the keyboard and display.

Asus also claims to have incorporated Antimicrobial Guard technology over frequently touched areas of the chassis that supposedly inhibits 99% bacterial growth over a 24-hour period in conformity with ISO 22196 standards.

Connectivity: Not a very ideal port distribution

The majority of the ports are on the right edge with only one USB 2.0 Type-A port on the left. The ports are evenly spaced, but having most of them on one side can be inconvenient while attaching external peripherals.

The lone USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port enables Power Delivery but not DisplayPort output. The HDMI 1.4 specification limits external monitor output to 4K 30 Hz.

Communication

The MT7902 WLAN card is not exceptionally fast
The MT7902 WLAN card is not exceptionally fast

The MediaTek MT7902 WLAN card in the VivoBook 15X supports Wi-Fi 6E reception. However, the performance, while good, falls significantly short of that of the Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 card when tested with our reference Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 router.

Overall throughput does not differ significantly between the 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands, although the latter does allow for slightly higher peak speeds.

Webcam

Asus equips the VivoBook 15X with a 720p webcam. According to the company, the webcam provides 3D noise reduction and AI effects via the MyAsus app.

Nevertheless, the camera shows large color deviations, particularly with red shades in the X-Rite ColorChecker passport. The test chart output appears to be fairly noisy as well.

Having said that, the webcam should still be adequate for the occasional video call or two. A physical webcam shutter is provided for privacy.

Security

The VivoBook 15X OLED lacks an IR camera, but it does have a quick, responsive fingerprint reader in the upper right corner of the touchpad. A TPM 2.0 module is available as well.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no additional accessories in the box aside from the 65 W power adapter and the usual paperwork.

Asus offers a one-year standard warranty for the VivoBook 15X OLED in India. Buyers can presently take advantage of discounted warranty extension and local accidental damage protection offerings as part of Back to College promotions through June 30, 2023.

Maintenance

The back panel can be removed by unscrewing the ten PH0 screws. Make a note of which screw goes where, as it can be difficult to fit them back in correctly later.

Because 8 GB of RAM is soldered to the motherboard, there is only one SO-DIMM socket for memory extension up to 16 GB. The WLAN card and NVMe SSD are swappable, and the battery may be unscrewed and changed if necessary.

Input Devices: Full-size keyboard and roomy touchpad with good tactility

Keyboard

The full-size ErgoSense keyboard on the VivoBook 15X has uniformly spaced, dish-shaped keys that travel 1.4 mm and provide good tactile feedback. The Enter key stands out from the others with its distinctive VivoBook design.

The top row contains the Function keys, which also serve as shortcuts for critical functions. The camera cannot be turned off from here; however, the microphone can be muffled. A three-stage backlight provides white illumination for nighttime legibility.

Touchpad

The 9.5 cm x 17 cm touchpad has a smooth, responsive gliding surface and supports Windows Precision gestures.

The whole surface functions as a left mouse button. Clicks are relatively effortless and generate little noise.

The VivoBook 15X features same Samsung ATNA56YX03 OLED panel as the VivoBook 15 KM513, VivoBook 15 Pro, and ZenBook Pro 15. Thus, the panel characteristics are essentially consistent across these laptops. There is no backlight bleed by virtue of this being an OLED panel.

The brightness distribution is excellent at 97% with a virtually infinite contrast ratio. SDR peak brightness appears to be slightly lower compared to the aforementioned models, but it should still be enough for most applications. The display also supports VESA DisplayHDR 600 for HDR content.

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.

20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.6 ms rise
↘ 2.4 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 38 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
4.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.4 ms rise
↘ 2.4 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 ms).

Due to the nature of background PWM flickering, calculating the response times is not a straightforward process. Manual estimation shows that the panel takes 20 ms for a 100% black to 100% white transition, which is on the higher side for an OLED panel. The 50% grey to 80% grey transition is relatively quicker at 4.8 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 detected 60 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 60 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 60 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17560 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The VivoBook 15X's OLED panel employs a 60 Hz PWM frequency to manage display brightness. This is a low frequency, which can be problematic for those who are sensitive to PWM. 

We recommend utilizing this panel at brightness settings below 51%. At these levels, the panel switches to a 60 Hz DC Dimming mode, which should be less taxing on the eyes than PWM.

0% brightness: DC Dimming 60 Hz
0% brightness: DC Dimming 60 Hz
25% brightness: DC Dimming 60 Hz

The glossy screen makes outdoor viewing challenging under direct sunlight. Viewing angles are very consistent, but we do observe some green tinting at the extremes which is not uncommon with OLEDs.

Performance: Minor gains over the original Barcelo

Our VivoBook 15X unit is powered by the AMD Ryzen 5 7530U APU. Asus also offers the VivoBook 15X with an AMD Ryzen 7 7730U option.  The laptop supports up to 16 GB DDR4-3200 RAM extension, of which 8 GB is soldered.

 
 

Testing Conditions

The MyAsus app allows you to select from a variety of fan profiles. The PL0, or Skin Temperature Aware Power Management (STAPM), remains constant at 15 W across all profiles.

We utilized the Performance mode for all benchmarks and the Standard mode for battery tests.

Processor

The Ryzen 5 7530U offers little gains overall compared to its previous gen variant
The Ryzen 5 7530U offers little gains overall compared to its previous gen variant

The Ryzen 5 7530U is a 6C/12T processor with a TDP of 15 W. This is the second Zen 3 Cezanne refresh, dubbed Barcelo Refresh. In comparison to the Ryzen 5 5625U, the Ryzen 5 7530U has a 300 MHz lower base clock speed and a 200 MHz higher boost frequency.

The Ryzen 5 7530U trails the Ryzen 7 7730U by 3% in Cinebench R15 multi, but we observe a bit of throttling after the 10th run.

Cumulatively, the Ryzen 5 7530U offers a modest 5% performance improvement over the Ryzen 5 5625U in the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15 and the 45 W Ryzen 5 5600H in the VivoBook 15X M1503QA. However, it falls 8% short of the Ryzen 7 7730U in the IdeaPad Flex 5 16.

Storage Devices

The Micron 2400 512 GB SSD's performance suffices for casual use
The Micron 2400 512 GB SSD's performance suffices for casual use

The Micron 2400 512 GB NVMe SSD does not break any I/O speed records, lagging far behind the Western Digital SN740, Samsung PM9B1, and Micron's own 2450-class SSDs.

Nonetheless, the performance should be more than adequate for casual home or multimedia use.

We did not observe any performance throttling in extensive DiskSpd read loop tests at a queue depth of 8. There is no scope for storage expansion of any kind.
