Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Review: Games & Strong 3K Colors

Nvidia-dGPU included. Asus has gone the extra mile: The 14-incher combines the easily adjustable graphics performance of an MX450 with a scalable Tiger Lake Core i7. On top of that, it has a colorful 3K widescreen OLED. Does this leave anything to be desired?

Asus goes OLED: Many laptop series are now equipped with an OLED screen as standard. Not only do the high-end Zenbooks take advantage of more color and a greater contrast ratio, but also the Vivobooks, such as the Vivobook 15 M513UA - which we are also currently reviewing.

This initiative brings OLED and 3K/4K into lower price regions, and other manufacturers are likely to follow suit. Mid-range customers will seriously consider purchasing OLEDs when the difference to devices without OLEDs is only 200 to 300 Euros.

That said, mid-range hardware and workmanship is not what Asus is offering with the Zenbook 14X. The case is solid and of above-average quality. The inputs, including the screen pad (ClickPad = 2nd display), are first class, and performance (with the Core i7 and Geforce MX450) is almost in the top league of subnotebook - compared to other 28 watt processors from Intel.

But the competition never sleeps: the Dell XPS 13 9310 OLED is also on offer. Is the only difference here the lack of a dGPU? An ideal comparison would be with the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro 14, which also comes with OLED and a GeForce MX450. Since there aren't many OLED 14-inchers, we also consider IPS competitors, provided they possess at least a MX450 or a stronger dGPU. The HP Envy 14-eb0010nr with Intel and the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is probably the most interesting for gaming enthusiasts.

Case - High quality laptop

We are somewhat impressed by the case. Asus has done away with the aim of creating the lightest possible case and instead created a torsion-resistant chassis. The lid cannot be warped under normal force! This is extremely rare - even among the highest-quality subnotebooks. The aluminum back of the lid, together with the display panel, forms a seemingly indestructible unit. Pressure on the back or attempts to twist it did not create streaks etc. on the screen.

The solid quality continues with the hinges: the closed position is held firmly in place magnetically, and can be simply pried open with one finger. The hinges remain tight upon opening, and nothing wobbles or jiggles when carrying and lifting.

Things are no different with the base, which is made entirely of aluminum, including the detachable baseplate. The keypad does not bend at any point, and the base itself is completely solid.

At 1.44 kg, the Zenbook is one of the heavier subnotebooks, topped only by the HP Envy 14-eb0010nr at 1.6 kg. The difference to the average of the lighter 14- and 13-inchers is 100 grams. In return for this, you get a more stable base. The thinnest model in comparison is the Dell XPS 13 9310 OLED at 14.8 mm and 1.2 kg. At 17 mm, the Zenbook 14X is thin on average, so Asus is not setting any new standards here.

Hardware - Zenbook with Type-C-Thunderbolt

Asus uses two USB-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports. They also output an image signal (DisplayPort) and receive the power supply (100 watts). Accordingly, three displays can be connected, including HDMI. In practice, however, this is limited to two if the Type-C charger is used at the same time. There is no longer a socket for a power supply adapter. Thunderbolt docking stations relieve the mess of cabling, meaning that the TB4 port occupied by the PSU is no longer a problem.

SD Card Reader

The performance of the microSD reader, simiarly to its colleagues, is average, but not as good as in the Dell XPS. We tested with the 128 GB AV PRO V60 card.

Communication

The Intel AX201 WiFi chip is on board, so it cannot be changed. Our Zenbook had no connection problems with the brand new Asus GT-AXE11000 WiFi 6 router. However, the speed was stuck at 950 Mb/s in the standardized test and did not reach what AX200, AX210 and AX201 demonstrated in other laptops. We suspect throttling in our router setting.

Webcam

The e-shutter webcam produces low-resolution and rather noisy images, even under the best lighting conditions. E-shutter means that the camera is switched off electrically when the corresponding F button is pressed. Unfortunately, you can't see this visually on the camera eye as you can in the case of a mechanical shutter with its red "curtain". The Dell XPS 13 shows that things can be done better.

Accessories

Accessories consist of a 100-watt power supply, a USB Type-A Ethernet dongle, and a digitizer pen with battery and replaceable tips. The current Intel and AMD versions of the Zenbook are all touchscreen, so the pen should be part of the equipment of every 14X.

A fingerprint reader is inconspicuously installed in the power switch, which is located on the right corner of the keyboard. The Zenbook does not have an IR camera for face login under Windows Hello, not even in other variants.

Maintenance

Loosen the screws, open a gap between the hinges with a plastic spatula, and the baseplate can be removed. There is not much to maintain: the RAM is onboard (no socket) as well as the WiFi module.

Input Devices - Productive layout

Asus supplements the input devices with a Screenpad, which is a display in the clickpad. This is an extended desktop onto which any windows can be dragged - such as an audio player or color palettes in Photoshop. Whether this results in useful applications depends on the tools used and, of course, on the question of whether one can intermittently do without the ClickPad.

Keyboard

The matte, non-slip keys have a distinctive pressure point, a moderate drop and a firm stroke. Typing is almost silent. Thanks to the three-level white backlight, you can work in dark environments without issue.

Overall, a broad layout with the large Shift, Ctrl and direction keys allows one to work quickly, or even blindly. The key spacing is quite large by laptop standards (2.5 mm) because the entire width of the base is used here. On the right, there is even enough space for Page Up/Down and Home/End - a successful layout for practical use. Another very positive point is the firm base of the keyboard; nothing gives way at any point.

All in all, the result is a spacious keyboard that only lags a little behind business professionals like the Dell Latitude 7420 in terms of pressure point. The Zenbook is certainly fast to type on. This review was written on the Zenbook keyboard.

Touchpad

The clickpad is sensitive right up to the edges and has a short drop. It works with a dull, quiet noise. The matte surface is smooth, bordering on slippery, and guides the finger comfortably. We find the short drop stroke unsatisfactory.
The pad can be a screen if desired: The pad function can be used quickly with a crossfade or for a longer time by dectivating the display function (Fn+F6). The ScreenPad 2.0 has a FHD+ resolution (2160x1080); it is an IPS panel. In Windows, the secondary display operates as an extended desktop. Asus has prepared groups for the ScreenPad. Each group can be filled with applications that seem useful on the small display: handwriting, a number pad, the app store, a calculator or Spotify.

The main argument for buying the Zenbook 14X is its 14-inch OLED panel. Samsung supplies a WQXGA+ panel with 2,880x1,800 pixels (16:10). With a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a response time of 0.2 milliseconds, the display outshines evey other IPS panel.

It also promises 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, which was confimed by our measurements. Asus speaks of 400 nits of brightness; we measured 347 cd/m² on average and 351 at maximum. Nits and cd/m² are converted 1:1, so we couldn't measure the brightness advertised by the manufacturer. The brightness is distributed homogeneously, which is typical for OLED.

High luminance is harmful for OLED displays anyway, so this should not be running continuously.  Asus has responded to the "burn-in" issue with an OLED screensaver that cannot be switched off. This automatically becomes active after 15 minutes. Users can deactivate the screensaver after weighing up the risk (the corresponding warning is shown), which can only be done via the personal MyAsus Settings. This forces the user to create an account.

The screen-to-body ratio is 92%, which is very little frame around a lot of display. The Samsung panel uses DC dimming to reduce brightness, which can also be adjusted in MyAsus. 

Asus has three panel options for the Zenbook 14X: the WQXGA+ (2,880x1,800) as touch (like the test device), a QHD+ (2,560x1,600) as non-touch, and a 4K touch (3,840x2,400). Criteria such as HDR True Black 600, 100% DCI-P3 and a screen-to-body ratio of 92% are identical for all variants. The brightest panel is said to be the 4K Touch variant (550 instead of 400 nits).

MyAsus: Managing colors - we measured under Splendid-Normal

As expected, the OLED display has superb contrast (∞:1), black is deep black and colors are vibrant. The response times are also excellent, as is typical for OLEDs. The color and OLED theme are managed in MyAsus.

Before calibration, we determined the DeltaE of the grayscale and colors to be 0.8 and 2.8, respectively - very good values because they are below 3.0. However, calibration made grayscale worse and colors minimally better. In short: calibration is unnecessary, as the factory-calibrated panel seems to be optimally set up.

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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 6 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 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 240 Hz ≤ 40 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 40 % 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 17585 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

DC dimming: flicker-free OLED dimming
DC dimming: flicker-free OLED dimming

PWM for brightness reduction at 240 Hz (top image, waveform) is available for brightness levels from 0 to 5 (out of 10), above which DC dimming (bottom image, line) is used. This technique is an alternative to PWM, in which pixels are briefly switched off. DC dimming reduces the voltage, which is why the pixel shines less brightly. Below 60% brightness, DC dimming causes a marked deterioration in color representation, which is why the OLED switches to PWM here (240 Hz). Sensitive people could be affected by this, although we rarely went below 60% in real-time use. For normal office use in daylight, we operated at 70-80%. Users can adjust the dimming level of the screen with the "Flicker-free OLED dimming" option.

Thanks to high brightness, it works quite well outside in the shade.

The glare-type surface (non-touch) suffers from reflections outdoors, and the strong brightness hardly helps here. The screen can be used well in the shade, also because the luminance does not throttle in battery mode (345 cd/m² in the centre of the image).

There's no question that the viewing angles of OLED panels are the best available. Even from flat angles, colors remain stable and the brightness does not appear any weaker.

Performance - Zenbook with faster MX450 variant

Intel Tiger Lake Core i7 and Nvidia Geforce MX450 (TU117)
Intel Tiger Lake Core i7 and Nvidia Geforce MX450 (TU117)

Asus uses the 28 watt Tiger Lake and an Intel Core i7-1165G7 (2.8 GHz) with an integrated Intel Iris Xe G7 GPU (Gen 12). The latter is supplemented by a Nvidia GeForce MX450 (Optimus) that can be switched off. For price-conscious buyers, there is a variant with i5-1135G7 (2.4 GHz), also combined with MX450. The target group is pro users who are looking for a presentable, handy notebook equipped with a high-end display and all-round performance for work and play alike.

Test Conditions

MyAsus allows you to choose a performance mode independent of the Windows power settings. For the benchmarks and load measurements, we selected "Performance Mode" combined with the Windows setting "Best Performance". The Windows power-saving mode was completely deactivated. For the WiFi runtime test, we activated Asus "Silent Mode" and Windows "Best Energy Saving". We did not change any performance-related settings in the BIOS. The user can only access the Asus performance mode by creating a MyAsus account. This coercive measure - because it is also necessary for all OLED settings - is a point of criticism. 

MyAsus: Performance mode was active for all benchmarks - only the iGPU works in whisper mode

Processor

The Core i7-1165G7 (2.8 GHz) has a PL1 of 50 watts and a PL2 (short term) of 61 watts. In practice, however, the processor does not operate within this range, as total CPU power consumption graph shows below. The 50 watt level is not reached; the value settles at 40 watts after 20 seconds. The power peak at the beginning of load is low, where 4 GHz is only maintained for a few seconds in multi-core. See Logviewer Prime95.

At least the available power that can be accessed remains constant under permanent load, as the Cinebench R15 loop demonstrates. This shows a Core i7 that is no faster than a nominally weaker Core i5, such as the one installed in the HP Envy 14. As has often been shown, the Ryzen 9 5900HS is in a completely different league in this respect.

In all Cinebench tests, the i7-1165G7 follows the Ryzen 9 in multi-core by a clear margin (-50%). In single core, it is only a gap of -9% for our Core i7. The bottom line is that the SoC is slightly above average compared to other models with the same chipset, such as the Zenbook 14 UX435 and the MSI Modern 14.

DPC Latencies

In our standardized latency test (web surfing, YouTube 4K playback, CPU load), the Zenbook shows problems with increased latencies. This is due to kernel driver and ACPI drivers. The present driver configuration is not suitable for real-time audio applications. During video playback, there were 132 skipped frames. But this reflects the present configuration; things may look different if the driver setting is changed.
