Reviews for the Asus ZenBook UX430UN-GV038T

ASUS ZenBook UX430 review – classy beast with a top-notch display
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS has clearly produced a very good product. The improvement over the older UX410 is notable and it also stands well against the competition of models from other companies such as HP’s EliteBook 850 G4, and Acer’s Swift 3, and the lightweight champion the Swift 5. From our GPU tests, we also saw that the new MX150 budget low-voltage solution fares well against the GeForce 940M and AMD’s new Vega 10 silicon.

80% ASUS Zenbook UX430UN Review- Sleek and Powerful
Source: Techniqued English
The ASUS Zenbook UX430UN ticks almost all the right boxes for a good performing ultraportable laptop. With great design, excellent display, performance and good battery life, there is hardly anything to complain about UX430UN for the price you are paying. The only area where ASUS could have done a bit better is the fan noise.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
