Reviews for the Asus Zenbook 14 OLED UM3406HA

88.6% Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review - The AMD variant of the Zenbook has received the weaker 1080p OLED screen | Notebookcheck
Asus also offers its Zenbook 14 OLED as a cheaper version featuring an AMD Ryzen 8000 processor—that even delivers better performance than the Meteor Lake variant. It does, however, face limitations when it comes to its RAM and its Full HD OLED panel which only has a 60 Hz refresh rate.
80% Asus Zenbook 14 OLED Touch (UM3406) Review
Source: PC Mag English
One of Asus' countless other Zenbook 14 OLED models, the AMD Ryzen 7 7730U-based Asus Zenbook 14 OLED UM3402, earned a four-star recommendation in August 2023 and was recently ousted from our ultraportable roundup by none other than the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED (Q420). Joined by today's UM3406 in the under-$900 club, the UM3402 has a sharper screen but we griped that its performance trailed that of Intel systems. (Hence the Q420's recent position.) By contrast, the Ryzen 7 8840HS-packing Asus Zenbook 14 OLED Touch UM3406 can slug it out with Intel's finest and lasted four hours longer on battery power—reason enough to bestow it with our Editors' Choice award for frequent flyers in economy class.

AMD Radeon 780M: Integrated graphics card in the Ryzen 7040 mobile series APUs based on the RDNA3 architecture with 12 CUs (= 768 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 3 GHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

R7 8840HS: A high-end, Hawk Point family processor that was unveiled in Q4 2023. The 8840HS isn't actually a new chip; instead, it's similar to the Ryzen 7 7840U but with a 5W higher minimum TDP and a higher clocked Ryzen AI engine. The 8840HS has 8 SMT-enabled cores (16 threads) running at 3.3 GHz to 5.1 GHz. Those Zen 4 architecture cores are mated to the Radeon 780M integrated graphics adapter.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
