Asus Vivobook S 15 OLED review - A new age of laptops with the new Snapdragon X Elite?

MacBook Air killer or all just hype? The Vivobook S 15 OLED was previously only available with AMD and Intel processors but now, the new ARM chip—the Snapdragon X Elite—makes its debut inside this large multimedia laptop. The result is a surprisingly normal laptop with an impressive OLED panel which, unfortunately, doesn't run all applications and games.

The first Snapdragon Elite laptop from Asus is the new Vivobook S 15 OLED, with which the manufacturer is expanding its existing lineup consisting of the AMD and Intel models. It is a 15.6-inch multimedia laptop fitted with the new Snapdragon X Elite (X1E-78-100), so the smallest of the four available variants. Aside from this, the device features a metal case, 16 GB RAM, a 1-TB PCIe 4.0 SSD as well as a high-resolution 16:10 OLED display (2,880 x 1,620 pixels, 120 Hz). With an MRSP of US$1,269.99, the Asus laptop faces direct competition from the Apple MacBook Air 15 M3 and Qualcomm itself always compared its Snapdragon CPUs to Apple's ARM processor prior to their launch.

We will of course analyze this in the following test but at the same time, we are especially interested in whether laptops with Qualcomm SoCs truly are an alternative to the Intel/AMD systems and how well Windows—including its new AI features—really runs. This is because in the past, this was one of their biggest problems. Our thorough analysis article on the new ARM processor will be available shortly, which will provide a technical overview of the new Snapdragon X Elite.

Case - The Vivobook with an aluminum case

The case of the new Vivobook S 15 with the Snapdragon processor has received a slight update. Its general design consisting of a silver case continues to follow that of the previous AMD/Intel models, however, the old models are around 2 cm deeper and in particular the bottom bezel on the new Snapdragon Vivobook is considerably narrower. In total, the Vivobook feels very modern and the dark frame around the display gives it a nice contrast. 

The quality of the aluminum case is great. The base unit can only be slightly dented in the middle area but we weren't able to elicit any creaking noises from it when trying to twist it. The thin screen is a little more flexible but creaking noises are foreign to this part of the device too and thanks to the manufacturer's use of an OLED panel, it never came to any image errors during our test. Both hinges are set well and only allow the display to wobble a small amount when adjusting its opening angle (maximum 180 degrees). At the same time, the lid can be easily opened with one hand.

We already touched on the size difference between the AMD/Intel models and the Vivobook. The MacBook Air, which is also 15 inches in size, is slightly deeper but in turn, it is a little narrower (this is mostly to do with its different aspect ratio). Naturally, the 16-inch devices take up a little more space on your desk. The new Vivobook weighs 1.43 kg, so it is slightly lighter than the MacBook Air 15 (1.5 kg). The included 90-watt power supply adds another 392 grams on to the scales with its cable included.

Connectivity - The Snapdragon with USB 4

The Vivobook features a good selection of connectivity options and both of its USB-C ports support the 4.0 standard. However, we would like to have seen a further USB-C connection on the right-hand side to be able to charge the device on both sides. Moreover, users also have two regular USB-A ports at their disposal, so you likely won't have to reach for an adapter during everyday use. You can connect up to three external displays with a 4K resolution (60 Hz) or two panels with a 5K resolution (60 Hz).

The microSD card reader on the left (spring mechanism) takes in cards fully, but its speeds are low. In combination with our reference router (Angelbird AV Pro V60), we measured maximum transfer rates of only ~38 MB/s, and ~28 MB/s when copying image files.

Communication

The Qualcomm chip has an integrated Wi-Fi 7 module (Fast Connect 7800), so it is very well-equipped for the coming years. In our standardized test using the reference router from Asus, the test device delivered stable and high transfer rates. During practical use, we also never had any issues surrounding signal quality. The Qualcomm chip additionally supports a 5G modem, but our test device isn't fitted with one.

Webcam

A 1080p webcam including a mechanical shutter is installed into the upper display frame—it takes decent photos in good lighting conditions. Similar to the current AMD/Intel laptops, this model also supports Studio Effects (background soft focus, head tracking etc) directly as part of its operating system. Furthermore, it can access an IR camera for facial recognition via Windows Hello.

Maintenance

The bottom case cover is secured via a total of 10 Torx screws (T5), whereby two are hidden beneath glued-on covers. Inside, users can access the two fans—plus, the two fans, M.2-2280 SSD and the battery can be replaced if needed. All other components including the RAM are unable to be swapped out.

Copilot+

The new Qualcomm laptops are marketed as being Copilot+ devices and of course the Vivobook S 15 is no exception to this. Aside from the previous Copilot functions and the familiar Studio Effects, it now supports additional features. Included in this, for example, are live subtitling, Automatic Super Resolution when playing games and Cocreator, with which you can transform sketches into complete pictures. The advertized—but controversial—Recall feature, on the other hand, is not yet available. Microsoft is set to release a large update when the new Copilot+ devices are released, so we haven't yet been able to test the functions in detail.

In addition, Asus offers its own advanced AI functions such as StoryCube for AI-supported organisation of media files or advanced facial detection which dims the screen when you aren't looking at it.

The additional Copilot+ functions are also set to be available on future Intel and AMD models—they just require an NPU with 40 TOPS.

Input devices - A number pad and touchpad gestures

The large silver keyboard's labelling offers good contrast and it also features a dedicated number pad whose keys are a little narrower. The layout is clear and of course, the new Copilot key is also included—only the arrow keys are very small. Thanks to the keys' high lift and clear keystrokes, it feels comfortable to type on this keyboard even when writing longer texts. In addition, the Vivobook has one-zone RGB backlighting in three intensity settings, whereby its colors and effects can be set via the MyAsus app. The backlighting can be activated and deactivated automatically via an ambient light sensor.

Additional gestures

With a footprint of 13 x 8.5 cm, the large clickpad is big enough in size for pointer control as well as gestures using up to four fingers. In addition, the pad supports intelligent gestures along the edges, with which you can change the laptop's brightness or volume, for example. In general, this works well—but you won't get any feedback when using this function. Laptops with haptic touchpads (such as the Huawei MateBook X Pro) use vibrations to support the gestures.

The pad is nice and smooth but its click noises (the lower part of the pad can be pressed down) are a little on the loud side. We simply tapped the pad for inputs during our test (Tap to Click), which worked perfectly.

Nothing has changed about its screen and like in the previous models (AMD/Intel), the laptop is fitted with a 15.6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,620 pixels. Its aspect ratio is 16:9, which suggests the Vivobook is more intended for media playback than productivity. Subjectively, the picture quality of the strongly reflective panel (without a touch function) is impressive, as colors appear super vivid and black content looks rich. Moreover, movements benefit from the panel's increased frequency (120 Hz) as well as its speedy response times. Light areas also don't look grainy and we noted no raster effect, as can be seen on quite a few OLED touchscreens. The panel's brightness and color temperature can be automatically adjusted via a sensor.

Its maximum SDR brightness is 380 cd/m², so slightly lower than the newest Samsung panels that can reach just over 400 cd/m². Thankfully, you shouldn't really notice this difference and thanks to its low black value, it boasts an extremely high contrast ratio. In HDR use (which still has to be activated manually in the settings), we measured a maximum brightness of 608 cd/m² when depicting small image excerpts and only around 400 cd/m² when showing a full white picture.

We analyzed the OLED panel using the professional CalMAN software and as usual, Asus gives users various color profiles to choose from. By standard, the profile Native is activated, but it oversaturates colors ever so slightly (this can look better subjectively). Even so, it is well suited for everyday use. The profile P3 is also very accurate and it ensures that all color deviations fall below the important value of 3 compared to the P3 reference. We also noted no color cast in its gray tones, so you can directly use this profile to edit pictures/videos.

There is also an accurate sRGB profile which, unfortunately, isn't offered by all manufacturers. By the way, we haven't been able to calibrate this panel yet, as our usual i1Profiler software doesn't run on the ARM Vivobook. We will add the results as soon as possible. According to CalMAN, the P3 color space is covered in its entirety.

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.

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 240 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240 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 240 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 17482 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

We measured PWM flickering at 240 Hz across all brightness levels on the Vivobook's OLED panel. Asus itself recommends not to reduce the Windows brightness to below 50 % and instead, to use the included software function called "flicker-free OLED dimming".

The OLED display is strongly reflective and outside, you will often be faced with interfering reflections even on cloudy days. On very sunny days, it can easily get difficult to work effectively or to watch a video, for example. Its viewing-angle stability is excellent.

Performance - The Snapdragon X Elite with 16 GB RAM

In the past, there were already Windows devices featuring ARM processors, however, their user experience was generally not the best and subjectively, their performance was considerably worse than on AMD/Intel laptops with Windows. This isn't the case with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite and subjectively, its speed is very high and can absolutely be compared with current Windows laptops that rely on AMD or Intel CPUs. We tried to run our regular benchmark course and many programs did in fact work, but not all of them did—gaming caused limitations in particular. Although there are native ARM versions of lots of apps (such as the entire Office suite or Adobe apps), it isn't always clear which apps are emulated or run natively. We will state in individual sections if we faced problems with specific test programs.

 
 

Testing conditions

The Vivobook features four different energy profiles and we have summarized each of their performance values in the following table. Beware: The TDP value specifications come directly from the manufacturer and also include the RAM and microcontroller's consumption. Therefore, these values are not comparable with the TDP specifications of AMD/Intel chips. There is also currently no way to read out the TDP values for Snapdragon CPUs. The information in the table comes from Asus, but we assume that these are only long-term values and that the short-term consumption is higher. At least that's what our consumption measurements suggest.

Energy profile TDP (manufacturer specification) Cinebench 2024 Multi 3DMark WildLife Extreme Unlimited max. fan noise emissions
Quiet mode 20 watts 786 points 6,157 points 32.5 dB(A)
Standard mode 35 watts 956 points 6,323 points 39.8 dB(A)
Performance mode 45 watts 1,033 points 6,356 points 51.7 dB(A)
Maximum performance mode 50 watts 1,132 points 6,186 points 57.2 dB(A)

The mode Standard comes preset and this is what we used for our benchmarks and measurements. Although the CPU's performance can be increased a little by using both of the faster modes, this comes at the unjust cost of considerably louder fans.

Processor - Snadragon X Elite with 12 cores, but without Turbo

Qualcomm currently has four different variants of the Snapdragon X Elite on offer, whereby the X1E-78-100 in our test device is the slowest of all of them, and it also can't make use of a boost. Its 12 cores (without hyper-threading) can achieve a maximum clock rate of 3.4 GHz. The faster models can reach up to 4.3 GHz with two cores loaded and 3.8 GHz with all cores in use, which suggests considerable performance differences. As previously mentioned, neither the total TDP nor the pure CPU consumption can be read out. However, based on our own consumption measurements, we would estimate that the pure CPU consumption is around 45-50 watts for a short time and then 30-35 watts permanently. For more technical information, you can also read our analysis article of the new Snapdragon X Elite, where we took a detailed look at the efficiency of the new ARM chip. 

When it comes to the benchmarks, we have to mention that several tests were emulated and not run natively. The most meaningful results are Cinebench 2024 and Geekbench 6.2, both of which run as native apps. Qualcomm has always referred to the results of the Apple M3 and since the Vivobook is supposed to be a competitor to the MacBook Air 15, we have naturally taken a closer look at this comparison. In the multi-core tests, the new Snapdragon X Elite beat the Apple M3 considerably—especially during Cinebench 2024 and Geekbench 6.2. In turn, the passively cooled M3 was a lot better when it came to single-core performance. Apple's latest M4 chip, which has only been installed into the new iPad Pro as of yet, was a little faster in the multi-core test from Geekbench; during the single-core tests, the new M4 even came as far as 50 % ahead—and all this without any active cooling.

Its performance is comparable to the latest Intel Meteor Lake CPUs, which is already a respectable result. However, it is difficult to make direct comparisons due to the vague TDP specifications. In any case, the Snapdragon chip offers more than enough performance (which remains stable) for everyday tasks. Moreover, its performance isn't reduced in battery mode.

System performance

As already mentioned, its subjective performance is impressive and the native apps (browser, Office, etc) all boot up extremely fast, making the Vivobook a generally super fast-reacting system. Its results were a bit of a mixed bag in the benchmarks, as our test device delivered relatively weak results in the cross-platform CrossMark test. In the browser tests, on the other hand, its results were great and almost on par with Apple.

We noted absolutely no problems surrounding the system's stability during normal use, however, the device continuously crashed during the stress test with Prime95. There were also no limitations or stability issues when using the laptop connected to an external monitor.

In principle, the native Adobe apps work very well but in turn, when running DaVinci Resolve, the Qualcomm chip didn't manage to play back our review footage in full resolution without suffering some dropped frames. Other current iGPUs from Intel and AMD manage to do this, as do Apple's ARM chips.

DPC latencies

We were unable to carry out our standardized latency test as the LatencyMon application didn't work. However, we can at least say that there were no dropped frames when playing a 4K YouTube video.

Storage device

Our test device is fitted with the Micron 2400 M.2 2280 SSD with a capacity of 1 TB. After first starting up the device, users have 899 GB free to use. It is a PCIe 4.0 SSD and its transfer rates are up to 5 GB/s, which is of course totally sufficient for everyday use. Moreover, its performance remains completely stable even under continuous load. Further SSD benchmarks can be found here.
