With the ZenBook 14 UX435EG, Asus is offering a compact and light 14-inch notebook. The equipment configuration that was provided to us is run by a Core i7-1165G7 quad-core processor and a GeForce-MX450 graphics core. The competitors include devices such as the MSI Prestige 14 Evo, the Huawei MateBook 14 2020, and the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7-14IIL05.

Case - The UX435 with a metal case

Asus uses a slim, compact, dark grey ("Pine Grey") metal case for the ZenBook. The base unit has a matte, smooth surface, and the back of the lid has a discrete brushed concentric surface with the "Asus" label in the center. The battery is built in, and the notebook does not offer a maintenance flap. You can access the hardware after removing the bottom of the case.

The 14-inch notebook does not show any faults in the workmanship. The gap clearances are small and there are no protrusions of the materials. The stability and stiffness of the laptop are okay. Pressure on the back of the lid does not lead to any changes in the displayed image. The hinges keep the lid tightly in place, and it is possible to open the display using a single hand. The maximum opening angle is about 135 degrees. When the lid is opened, the lower edge of the lid serves as a foot, raising the back of the base unit toward the user. A positive side effect is more air getting below the device for cooling.

The ZenBook is the most compact device in our comparison field. With a weight of about 1.3 kg (~2.9 lb), it is barely beaten by the MSI Prestige 14 (1.2 kg; ~2.6 lb).

Connections - Two Thunderbolt 4 connections in the ZenBook

The UX435EG brings two Thunderbolt 4 connections (USB Type-C; Power Delivery, DisplayPort via USB-C). They also serve to supply power to the notebook and for video output. Good: With the power supply connected, there is still another free port for other devices such as a docking station or an external GPUIn total, the 14-inch notebook offers three video output ports (2x DP, 1x HDMI). Asus also did not forget to add one USB Type-A port (USB 3.2 Gen 1) as well as an audio combo port. If you need more connections, you'd have to use a docking station.

Communication

The WLAN chip (Intel AX201) supports the 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax standards and offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. The data rates produced under optimal conditions (no additional WLAN devices nearby and close distance between the notebook and server PC; router: Netgear Nighthawk AX12) turn out excellent. The notebook does not offer an Ethernet port.

Webcam

The webcam (0.9 MP) records images at a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is unable to move ahead of the competitors in terms of the image quality.

Accessories

The notebook does not include any accessories in addition to the usual documentation (warranty information, quick start manual).

Maintenance

Since the notebook does not offer a maintenance flap, maintenance or upgrade tasks require you to remove the bottom of the case. To do this, you first have to remove all the screws from the bottom of the case. Note that additional screws are hidden underneath the two back rubber feet. After removing those, you can pry off the bottom of the case with a flat prying tool.

Warranty

The laptop is accompanied by a two-year warranty. To extend the warranty to three years, you have to pay an additional 55 Euros (~$67).

Input Devices - A ScreenPad instead of a ClickPad

Keyboard

The flat and smooth keys of the illuminated chiclet keyboard offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. While the resistance of the keys could have been more crisp, this might be a matter of taste. The main keys have a size of 15 x 15 mm (~0.6 x 0.6 in), and the distance between the keys is about 3 mm (~0.1 in). While typing, the keyboard has a slight give, but this is not a great annoyance. The keyboard illumination has three steps that you can select using a function key. Overall, Asus delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday tasks.

ScreenPad

Instead of a standard ClickPad, the 14-incher brings Asus' own ScreenPad. This is a secondary display (diagonal: 14.4 cm/5,65 in, 2160 x 1080 pixels) with a touchscreen. The ScreenPad acts like any other external display that is plugged in. You can turn it on or off via separate key. If the pad is turned off, it works like any simple ClickPad.

Asus includes some small applications that give an impression about the possibilities of the ScreenPad. For example, there are a calculator and a field for handwriting input. The Quick Key application bundles frequently-used functions (cut, copy, paste).

Touchscreen

The touchscreen display supports 10 touch points and responds promptly to inputs. It did not create any problems for us during the testing.

Display - An average touchscreen display

The reflective 14-inch touchscreen display has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. While the brightness (312.6 cd/m²) is greater than the target (>300 cd/m²), the contrast (897:1) turns out too low. We consider values above 1.000:1 as good. A 2000-Euro (~$2449) notebook should offer more. A positive point is the fact that the display does not produce any PWM flickering.

* ... smaller is better

In the state of delivery, the display offers a decent color reproduction. However, with a Delta-E deviation of almost 5, the target is missed (Delta-E < 3). In addition, the display suffers from a blue tint. A calibration brings some improvements, with the color deviation dropping to 3.6, the Grayscale reproduction being more balanced, and the blue tint disappearing. The AdobeRGB (58.5%) and sRGB (90.3%) color spaces are not fully covered.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 11 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 60 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
39 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 44 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.5 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9728 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The viewing angles of the IPS panel are stable and it can be read from any position. Outdoors, the reflective display surface prevents reading of the contents most of the time. This is only possible in the shade or under an overcast sky.

Test Conditions

Asus provides the three power profiles "Performance Mode," "Standard Mode," and "Whisper Mode." You can switch between them by using the "Fn" + "F" key combination. We ran our test with the "Standard Mode" profile activated. In addition, we ran several benchmarks also with the "Performance Mode" activated. You can find the results in the comparison diagrams.

Processor

Asus has equipped the ZenBook with a Core i7-1165G7 quad-core processor (Tiger Lake). This ULV CPU operates at a basic clock speed of 2.8 GHz, which can be increased via Turbo up to 4.1 GHz (all four cores) and up to 4.7 GHz (single core). Hyperthreading (two threads per core) is supported.

The multi-thread tests of the Cinebench benchmarks run for a brief time period at 2.7 to 4.1 GHz, before the clock speed drops to between 2.6 and 2.7 GHz. The single-thread tests run at 2 to 4.7 GHz. In battery operation, the clock speeds range between 1.5 and 3.4 GHz (multi-thread) and 1.5 to 4.1 GHz (single-thread).

Multi-thread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)
Single-thread (mains operation)

We evaluate whether the CPU Turbo is used constantly in mains operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench-R15 benchmark for at least 30 minutes in a constant loop. High clock speeds are only reached during the first test minute. As it continues to run, the speed drops to values just below the basic clock speed. The "Performance Mode" profile causes the Turbo speed to remain constantly high.

Graphics Card

The dedicated GeForce MX450 graphics core represents Nvidia's current midrange model. It is based on the same Turing chip as the GeForce GTX-1650 graphics core. The GPU is able to use the fast GDDR6 graphics storage (2048 MB). The integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7-96EU GPU is active, and the notebook uses Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching solution.

Nvidia has announced four MX450 versions that differ in terms of the performance, the graphics storage used, and/or the storage connection. Only the storage of the top model (TGP: 28.5 watts) offers the 128-bit connection. The rest of the models have to be content with a 64-bit connection.

The ZenBook contains the low-power version (TGP: 12 watts) of the MX450, which is the model with the weakest performance. Nonetheless, the GPU delivers mostly better results in the GPU and gaming benchmarks than the predecessor, the GeForce MX350 (TGP: 25 watts). The full-performance versions of the MX450 (TGP: 25 watts, 28.5 watts) will leave the MX350 much further behind. The "Performance Mode" profile does not lead to any increase in the graphics performance.
