Asus Vivobook Pro 16X Laptop in review: Asus system with a top-of-the-line OLED Display

A unibody metal case with great performance and a fantastic display - that is what the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X offers. The OLED display is Pantone validated for particularly accurate colors. Thanks to its dedicated GPU, the multimedia laptop covers a wide range of use cases ranging from gaming to professional video or photo editing.

Considering its features, the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X appears to be aimed at creators. It is equipped with an excellent 16:10 OLED display and achieves good results in various benchmarks. This is accomplished with an Intel Core i7-11370H from the last generation and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050. Alternatively, the Vivobook Pro 16X is also available in numerous other configurations, which include the latest AMD or Intel processors and several Nvidia GPU options.

The visual presentation of the laptop benefits from the generous use of aluminum. Thanks to its weave finish, the lid is particularly resistant to scratching and grease.

Since the multimedia laptop is equipped with powerful components, we selected laptops from various categories for our comparison. For example, both the cheaper Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 and the significantly more expensive ThinkPad X1 Extreme G4 are very similar in terms of the features. Regardless, the Vivobook is able to set itself apart from the competition due to its excellent OLED display.

Case - Aluminum Top, Bottom, and Center

Although this may not be apparent at first glance, almost the entire chassis of the Vivobook 16X consists of aluminum. The base unit was painted in anthracite, while a dark gray coating covers the lid. The latter is matte, very robust, and does not attract grease. Asus markets this as weave coating. Depending on the angle at which light hits the surface, it can appear very smooth or very rough. There is a characteristic Asus logo in a seperated area on the back of the lid. The design of the multimedia laptop is relatively straightforward otherwise.

The rigidity of the 16-inch system noticeably benefits from the generous use of metal. We were unable to meaningfully twist the base unit of the laptop from the corners. While the same does not quite hold true for the display, we at least did not notice any creaking. Although the lid can be opened up to a maximum angle of around 130 degrees with one hand, there is no major teetering. Unfortunately, the clearances are not perfectly even in several places. In the bottom left corner of the clickpad, there is a gap that exposes the internals of the case. Similarly, there are multiple spots with uneven clearances on the bottom. Our image gallery shows a few examples of the gaps we found. This begs the question whether the larger gaps are meant to compensate greater thermal expansion or if the manufacturing tolerances are simply too large.

Due to the fairly slim bezels, the Vivobook 16X OLED tends to be slightly smaller than other 16-inch laptops despite being a 16-inch device itself. Additionally, it is fairly thin when taking the dedicated GPU and the powerful CPU into account. By contrast, the weight is fairly high. At 1969 g (~4.34 lb), it can hardly be described as lightweight. Combined with the additional 446 g (~0.98 lb) for the AC adapter and its cable, the Vivobook 16X comes in at 2.4 kg (~5.29 lb) in total.

Connectivity - USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 on the Right, USB 2.0 on the Left

Thanks to USB type-C with Thunderbolt 4 and Power Delivery as well as 3x USB type-A and HDMI 2.1, users get a lot of flexibility in terms of accessories. This makes the slow microSD card reader a downright unfortuante choice. For a device aimed at content creators, a fullsize SD card reader with decent transfer speeds could have been a better fit. The two USB type-A ports on the left only support USB 2.0. Most of the usable ports are located on the right. For right-handed users who wish to use an external mouse, this can be a slight inconvenience.

SD Card Reader

Inserted SD card

The SD card reader is not one of the Vivobook's strengths. Since it is only connected via USB 2.0, it cannot reach good speeds even with our reference AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 card. The fact that not even microSD cards can be inserted fully, is also somewhat disappointing.

Communication

A metal chassis often complicates the placement of the Wi-Fi antennas for the manufacturer. This also appears to be the case on the Asus Vivobook 16X, since around 700 Mb/s for up- and downloads are below what we expect from Wi-Fi 6 and also subpar in our comparison.

Webcam

Asus uses a 0.9-MP webcam, which is a common choice for consumer laptops. Unfortunately, its quality is similarly poor as a result. As the Lenovo Thinkbook 14 G4 and 15 G4 have shown recently, there is room for improvements.

Security

A fingerprint sensor is integrated into the power button. Other security features are limited to the Intel Core i7's TPM 2.0 and other software solutions.

Accessories

The package of the Vivobook 16X OLED only includes the essentials. The AC adapter, paperwork, and laptop are packaged with small amounts of plastic.

Maintenance

The base unit is secured by 11 TX5 screws. After loosening them, the bottom still cannot be removed easily. Here, we recommend a suction cup and a plastic spudger to carefully dislodge the cover. 16 GB of RAM is soldered to the mainboard and thus cannot be upgraded. Easy upgrades are instead limited to the Wi-Fi module and the M.2 SSD. There are no other upgradeable parts on the Vivobook.

Warranty

The Vivobook Pro 16X comes with a standard one-year limited warranty when purchased in the US.

Input Devices - Asus Dail and a Fullsize Keyboard

Keyboard

The keyboard of the Vivobook Pro 16X takes advantage of the available space on the 16-inch laptop and offers a numpad in addition to the normal-height keys. The most commonly accessed features can be accessed via the function keys. The 15-mm (~0.59 in) square buttons offer a comfortable travel of 1.6 mm (~0.06 in) and a good haptic feedback.

Touchpad

Like on certain other Asus models, the Vivobook Pro 16X also comes with Asus Dial integrated into the touchpad. The input surface allows users to change various settings after accessing the feature with a swipe down from the top right corner. Alternatively, the Microsoft Surface Dial functions are also available. The clickpad has a diagonal size of 15.5 cm (~6.10 in) and good gliding properties, while being very responsive.

The great display of the Vivobook Pro 16X OLED is its best feature by far - this is both a good and a bad thing. The screen is Pantone validated for an excellent color space coverage with very low color deviations ex-factory. The 16:10 display offers natural colors, a high maximum brightness and a native resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels. There are also drawbacks to the glossy OLED panel, however. Glare and reflections are commonplace under sunlight or suboptimal lighting conditions.

The illumination is very even, which is typical for OLED displays. The maximum deviation from the 390-nit average is only 7 nits. Due to the underlying technology, there is no screen bleeding. Similarly, the contrast ratio of 14185:1 is excellent.

Vivobook Pro 16X OLED with Pantone validated sticker
Vivobook Pro 16X OLED with Pantone validated sticker

A display's Pantone validation does not necessarily translate into a wide color space coverage or extremely accurate colors in all cases. The Pantone color system was introduced to make colors for products and prints more comparable and predictable. Although the color system, which encompasses 1867 individual colors for prints and many more specific colors for products, is fairly extensive, it does not necessarily fully cover large color spaces such as DisplayP3. As a result, a monitor that only covers the smaller sRGB color space may still fulfill the requirements for the Pantone matching system. Furthermore, the color deviations outside the Pantone system may be larger.

In summary, it is still worth it to determine which color spaces a screen is able to display and which use cases it is suitable for, even in the case of a Pantone validated display. The requirements for video editing can be vastly different from those of graphic design for print media.

The OLED panel of the Asus Vivobook covers almost 100 percent of the three relevant color space. Thanks to the good AdobeRGB and DisplayP3 coverage, the display is well suited to photography and video editing, respectively.

The Pantone validated display of the Asus Vivobook has a very low color deviation ex-factory. In our test with the CalMAN ColorChecker software, the maximum color deviations only slightly exceed the target deltaE value of 3. With an average deltaE of 2.29, the screen comfortably falls into the ideal range.

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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0 ms rise

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 0.25 (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 (35.8 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 247 Hz ≤ 50 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 247 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 50 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 247 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

As per usual, the OLED display's flickering varies depending on the brightness setting as well as the displayed images. In the case of the Vivobook Pro 16X, we only detect flickering at brightness levels of 50 percent and lower. As expected, the display does not simultaneously dim in its entirety and instead only lowers the brightness in certain rows. This reduces eyestrain on the OLED display when compared to an LCD display with the same flickering frequency.

Despite its high maximum brightness, the glossy OLED display is not well suited to outdoor use. Glare an reflections degrade the perceived image quality particularly when the sun is shining. At particularly unfavorable angles under the sun or other bright light sources, the OLED display shows the characteristic, green refraction patters.

The 16-inch display shows no weaknesses in our viewing angle analysis. Even from extrem angles, the perceived brightness and color accuracy of the display is excellent.

Performance - Joy and Grief with the Nvidia Studio Drivers

There are various configurations of the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X OLED available. Aside form Intel 11th and 12th gen processors, the manufacturer also offers AMD-Ryzen-5000 and AMD-Ryzen-6000 series CPUs. The dGPU options range from the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 up to the 3070 Ti GPU.

Our configuration relies on an Intel Core i7 11370H CPU, a GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, and 16 GB of RAM.

 
 
 

Testing Conditions

Performance options Asus Vivobook Pro 16X
Performance options Asus Vivobook Pro 16X

When it comes to the power settings of the laptop, Asus uses values that exceed Intel's recommended TDP in some cases. According to our logs, the Intel Core i7 11370H sustains a power draw of up to 45 W for short periods. However, the energy consumption of the CPU can drop down to 25 W, depending on the fan setting. The dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU inside the Vivobook is limited to 50 watts. The model appears to be the smaller Max-Q variant of the graphics card. In order to draw the full 50 watts, the graphics card has to make use of the power budget it shares with the processor. The combined consumption must not exceed 85 watts in performance mode. Meanwhile, the default and whisper modes allow for a combined consumption of just 60 and 45 watts, respectively.

We selected Asus' performance mode before performing the following benchmarks. In order to determine the battery life, we chose the energy saver mode. For our noise testing, we used all three fan modes.

Processor

Our test device uses an Intel Core i7-11370H CPU. This processor is designed for slim, yet powerful laptops and the TDP can be configured relatively freely. With 35 watts, Asus even exceeds Intel's maximum recommended value. However, this value is only reached when only the CPU is stressed and even then limited to just a few minutes. 55 watts of boost performance means the Intel SoC has a lot of headroom. That being said, the Asus Vivobook Pro is more of a sprinter than a marathon runner. The high performance level, which the laptop is able to reach with the 11370H, quickly drops after a short time. The i7 from the 11th generation also cannot compete with the much more powerful Intel 12th gen processors.

Since normal use most frequently requires shorts bursts of performance, the Vivobook is pleasantly responsive during day-to-day use. By contrast, the multimedia laptop falls behind in the benchmarks with prolonged stress.

System Performance

In our system performance, benchmarks, the Vivobook Pro 16X OLED achieves great results overall. The multimedia system places far above the average. At the same time, however, the Vivobook cannot quite match the other devices in our comparison. The laptop suffers from a reduced performance in PCMark 10 and CrossMark due to two issues. One of them is the performance profile setting that quickly limits the performance potential of both CPU and GPU after a short time and the second issue is the fairly slow speed of the laptop's RAM. As a result the AIDA memory test scores are relatively low and the latencies high.

Regardless, the Vivobook Pro is very responsive during daily use and able manage occasional demanding tasks without any issues. Most benchmarks stress a laptop significantly harder than a normal workflow.

DPC Latency

Before performing our benchmarks, we updated the device with all the available drivers and the latest Windows updates. On the Vivobook Pro 16X, this results in very low DPC latencies. We recorded one dropped frame during video playback of a 4K YouTube video with 60 Hz. With the current software and hardware configuration, the laptop runs very well.

Intel's Optane Memory H10 NVMe SSD is an interesting concept. There are two different memory types and controllers on the PCB. Near the interface side, there is a 512-GB Intel QLC 3D NAND memory module with an appropriate controller. In the back of the M.2-2280 memory, there is a 32-GB Intel Optane memory module. Despite this, it is no longer one of the fastest drive options. In our SSD and HDD table, the Intel module now one of the lowest places. It should be noted that the Intel Optane technology drive was first introduced in 2019, making it three years old at the time of writing. The NVMe SSD with integrated, low-latency Optane cache is only connected via PCIe3.0x4, instead of the now common PCIe 4.0.

Our DiskSpd read loop quickly shows the internal layout of the SSD. As soon as the memory controller registers frequent access on a certain file, it is transferred to the Optane memory and accessed from there. This results in a signficant performance boost.
