Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX535: Rather with more Zen the next time
With its ScreenPad, the 1080p display integrated into the touchpad, the ZenBook has a genuinely unique feature from which not only content creators can benefit. The second screen can now be operated as you are used to on your smartphone, and the main display can also be extended with it if desired.
Otherwise, the expensive ZenBook has all sorts of good features, including the 4K OLED touch display, the well-manufactured metal case, and the large battery, which results in long runtimes. However, performance is reduced by about 20% on battery power, and in addition, the performance of the Intel CPU is unusually fluctuating. In the Cinebench loop, performance constantly fluctuated between runs with value differences of more than 10%.
Therefore, Asus should seriously consider using one of the recent AMD Ryzen processors that have become so powerful. These have proven to be particularly stable and performant, but at the same time, the architecture name (Zen) fits like a glove. All details and our final score can be found in our extensive review of the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX535.
