Asus Vivobook 13 Slate tablet PC in review: OLED at its best

Consumer. What do you get when you mix a Pentium chip with a crisp OLED panel? A sluggish yet silent tablet with great picture quality for consuming content. The Slate T3300 won't appeal to media creators, but that isn't its goal.

Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300) - Microsoft Surface competitor with a 13-inch OLED display
Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300) - Microsoft Surface competitor with a 13-inch OLED display

One-stop productivity and entertainment is how Asus describes its Vivobook 13 Slate OLED. Working and consuming content is supposed to be possible with the 13-incher. To achieve that, it's equipped with a Pentium Silver processor and a colorful and high-contrast Full HD OLED display, including a Stylus Pen 2.0.

Can the passively cooled quad-core CPU keep up with this claim? Considering all the big talk from Asus, the Vivobook 13 Slate should at least be able to keep up with the Microsoft Surface Go 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Book S. These two competitors are more expensive and don't come with OLED displays, but they set the performance standard that a detachable with productivity ambitions should meet at the very least. Can a Pentium N6000 keep up with the m3-8100Y or the Core i5-L16G7?

Case - Removable kickstand

The keyboard sleeve and tablet are designed to be robust for everyday use, but they weigh 1.4 kg together.
The keyboard sleeve and tablet are designed to be robust for everyday use, but they weigh 1.4 kg together.

The tablet consists of an aluminum frame into which the display and hardware have been inserted from the front. The device has decent resistance to torsion, but it's not incredibly sturdy, either. Opening it for maintenance purposes is not possible, at least not for ordinary users. There are no replaceable parts anyway, as the RAM, Wi-Fi module, and storage drive are all onboard.

The keyboard sleeve attaches magnetically to the tablet; it manages to attach on its own, so you don't have to be looking for the right way to make it fit. On the other hand, the stand attaches to a precisely defined spot on the back, namely there where the upper field integrates two strong magnets to the right and left. They hold the tablet so firmly that it can even be lifted by the stand. The stand has a heavy continuous hinge that determines the tablet's placement angle. This allows the tablet to stand upright in the range of 110 to 170 degrees. Using it on the lap is possible, as long as you manage to give the stand a secure support. This is hindered by the cut on the left side.

The detachable weighs 1.4 kilograms, which is quite a lot in comparison, no competitor is that heavy. Each component contributes to the weight, but the detachable stand (334 grams) is the heaviest. Last but not least, the cooling system and both the magnets for attaching the stand as well as the 50 Wh battery result in the tablet weighing 789 grams on its own. The figures in the chart always refer to the total weight with keyboard. The 12.5-inch to 13-inch competition doesn't weigh as much. The Surface Pro X and the Galaxy Book S weigh about one kilogram less.

Connectivity - Detachable with fast Wi-Fi

Productivity comes to a halt when it comes to ports. The Asus device lacks Thunderbolt connectivity. There are two Type-C ports, both with DisplayPort. One of them might always be blocked by the charger, for instance at home. This means that practically only one display can be connected.

SD card reader

We use our reference SD card (AV Pro V60) to test the speed of the built-in card reader. The maximum transfer rate is 39 MB/s when copying large data blocks, while 41 MB/s can be expected for standard jpg image files (around 5 MB each). The competition is sometimes twice as fast here.

Wi-Fi 6 is on board with the Intel AX201. The chip is at its best here because it performs above average for this type of device. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button is not very noticeable, but it's there. You only have to place your finger on it. The Asus tablet doesn't offer Windows Hello with facial recognition due to the lack of an IR camera.

Accessories

Asus includes an active stylus pen, a charging cable, a magnetic holder for the pen, and a large carrying case for the entire tablet in the box. In addition, a sleeve keyboard and a 65-watt power adapter are included. Unfortunately, the charging cable of the stylus has a Type-A port, so it can't be charged with the tablet, and it needs a separate charger or a laptop instead. The pen's magnetic holder sticks to the stand as well as the tablet (right side only).

Maintenance

The tablet can't be opened by untrained users. Due to the lack of fans, there's no need to clean anything anyway.

Warranty

The Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300) isn't available in stores yet. Asus usually offers a two-year Pickup & Return warranty for all of its products, which can be extended by upgrading the warranty.

Input devices - Everything you need in a productivity tablet

The fixed stand pays off when using the touchscreen. The tablet doesn't wobble or skid even when the fingers are vigorously tapping the screen.

The panel can also be operated wit a stylus. Our review sample came with a Bluetooth pen with detachable tips (2H, H, HB, B), more precisely, an Active Stylus SA203H (4,096 pressure levels, 266 Hz sampling rate). Asus will sell the device with and without the stylus.

Keyboard

The keys are characterized by a firm, almost rigid stroke, and generous spacing between them. The keys are completely flat, somewhat slippery, and have a short travel (1.4 mm). As a result, typing is swift, but a bit awkward. There's no keyboard backlight.

Touchpad

The enormously wide ClickPad exceeds the dimensions of those in many 15-inch or 16-inche devices. It's 13 cm wide and 6.7 cm tall. The surface ranges from smooth to slippery, and the click noise is rather muffled and quiet. As with the keys, the weak point is the short travel, which is even shorter in the upper half. In return, the pressure point is clear, which provides moderate feedback.

MyAsus: OLED Care - Activating the screen saver is recommended by the manufacturer

The 13.3-inch FHD panel from Samsung is responsive, moderately bright, covers the P3 color space, and supports HDR True Black 500. Except for the brightness, our measurements confirm the manufacturer's specifications. We only measure an average brightness of 302 cd/m², and Asus states 550 nits. The measured contrast is 3,000:1. Thanks to the OLED panel, screen bleeding is not an issue.

As is typical for OLEDs, response times are excellent. PWM is used for brightness reduction in this OLED panel at levels of 50% and below, which is where PWM (60 Hz) kicks in. Before that, DC dimming is active, which we also found to be 60 Hz at 90% to 50% brightness. Since DC dimming produces a blurry image at low brightness, it's turned off at 50% - the following warning then pops up in the status tray: "From now on without DC dimming, your eyes might become strained, take a break."

Night workers might be affected by this; a brightness of less than 50% might be desirable in special situations. During the day, we operated at 60%-70%, so we didn't face the inconvenience of having to work without DC dimming.

An OLED panel needs a certain amount of care, a topic that first-time owners need to learn. Static images, such as the Windows desktop, can burn in, an irreparable damage to the display. This is why Pixel Refresh and Pixel Shift exist. The former is a moving screensaver that starts after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Pixel Shift is always running, and it shifts image content constantly by one pixel from right to left, which you could imagine as a subtle shaking of the TFT. As a result, each pixel changes modes even when the image is the same.

Both Pixel Refresh as well as Pixel Shift can be deactivated in MyAsus / OLED Care at your own risk. We did this for the battery tests, for example.

* ... smaller is better

We found the DeltaE for the grayscale and colors to be 4.33 and 4.29, respectively, before calibration - acceptable, but not perfect. Calibration improves the values to 1.83 and 1.84, respectively. This puts them below 3.0, which is a very good accuracy. Note: We had to deactivate HDR and uninstall MyAsus incl. AsusSplendid in order for our created color profile to become active. It was previously prevented from being used by Splendid, the Asus color temperature tool.

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
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 1 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. » 0 % 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
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 1 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. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.5 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 ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 60 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 20889 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the glossy (non-touch) surface suffers from reflections, and the moderate brightness can't make up for that. The panel can be used to a limited extent in shaded areas.

Performance - Content creation is possible only to a limited extent

The Intel Pentium Silver N6000 is based on the Jasper Lake architecture, which was launched at the beginning of 2021 and is aimed at energy-saving low-end devices. Some chips can be cooled passively, like our Vivobook 13 Slate. Passive systems have used Core m chips so far, such as the m3-8100Y in the Microsoft Surface Go 2, or very special Ice Lake chips, such as the i5-L16G7 with seven watts (Samsung Galaxy Book S). With a TDP of six watts, the Pentium Silver is even more frugal.

The standard clock rate of the four cores is 1.1 GHz, but this can increase to up to 3.3 GHz in single-core use. This also happens in practice; an R15 single-core benchmark is performed at 3.2 GHz, with 3.1 GHz being maintained over time.

So as not to lose sight of the performance offered by an Intel Pentium Silver N6000 in other devices, we include the Acer Swift 1 SF114-34-P6U1 subnotebook. It is the only device in the database with this Pentium CPU.

Test conditions

We ran all benchmarks using the Windows profile "High Performance". This doesn't make a difference, because under "Balance" mode, Cinebench R15 and PCMark achieve comparable if not better scores. Under "Power Efficiency", the results are comparable in R15, but PC Mark 10 achieved significantly higher scores. With this in mind, we used the best scores in each case for the rating.

Processor

In terms of performance, the review sample is almost on par with the Microsoft Surface Go 2 (m3-8100Y). The Vivobook manages to draw more performance out of the Pentium Silver than the 14-inch Acer Swift 1 SF114-34 with an identical, passively cooled SoC. The air-cooled Core processors in the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 run almost twice as fast - but they also drop to up to 27% under continuous load. The Pentium in the Vivobook is more stable with only -5%. The Pentium has virtually no headroom for short-term load. This is the case for all passively cooled competitors.

We also looked at FurMark with the Intel UHD Graphics iGPU. The clock rate wasn't readable. The GT cores consume 4.5 watts in the GPU stress test. In games, this is between 3 and 3.5 watts.

System performance

PCMark 10 on battery power: 30% less points than plugged in
PCMark 10 on battery power: 30% less points than plugged in
PCMark 10 in Power Efficiency - More points than in High Performance
PCMark 10 in Power Efficiency - More points than in High Performance

The application performance of the PCMark scores certainly doesn't indicate an outstanding performance, but an adequate one. This is surely also related to the SSD choice; it's a PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, and not a soldered flash storage unit. Although the Asus device has to admit defeat to the Surface Pro 7, it can keep up with or even outperform the Surface Go 2. Worth noting: The Samsung Galaxy Book S is far behind in these tests, which was already hinted at by the CPU benchmarks above.

Regarding content creators: The Vivobook scores above average in content creation. Nevertheless, the Surface Pro 7 is 50% better in this area.

DPC latencies

In our standardized latency test (web browsing, 4K YouTube playback, CPU load), the Vivobook shows problems with elevated latencies. This is due to DirectX, network, and ACPI drivers. Consequently, this driver configuration isn't suitable for real-time audio applications. There were 95 skipped frames (dropped frames) in the 4K video playback.

Storage

The WDC PCIe 3.0 SSD (NVMe M.2) has a total capacity of 256 GB. It's installed in the standard model and, according to Asus, it's not onboard, which means that it can theoretically be replaced. The entry-level version has a 128 GB eMMC drive.

The WDC SN530 ranks quite low in the drive benchmarks and is usually outperformed by the Toshiba SSDs in both Surface models in the subscores. While the Access Time Read is very good, the WDC is inferior when reading and writing large and small blocks of data.

Graphics card

The Intel UHD Graphics iGPU (32 EUs, 350 - 850 MHz) assists with Quick Sync (video rendering) and with the playback of high-resolution videos. Games are nothing to write home about, apart from those from the Windows Store. Recent or even older blockbusters, some of which we tested, are very likely to miss the mark as the very red gaming table shows. Smooth gameplay is usually not even possible using the lowest settings.
