Asus Zenbook 17 Fold in review - Foldable 17-inch OLED convertible debut

Practical or an expensive experiment? With the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, Asus has released a foldable 17-inch convertible with modern components such as a Core i7 CPU. We explored the advantages and disadvantages the large foldable device extensively in order to determine whether it can be a serious, mobile companion.

Although foldable displays are no longer a novelty in the smartphone world, the ThinkPad X1 Fold with a fairly small 13.3-inch screen, which does not offer a lot of space particularly in the laptop mode, is the only representative in the notebook sector. With the Zenbook Fold, Asus is trying to improve upon this by releasing a 17-inch, foldable convertible. The OLED screen has a 4:3 aspect ratio and a native resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels. The system uses the Intel Core i7-1250U, a recently released Alder Lake-U processor with a TDP of just 9 watts (up to 29 watts Turbo Boost).

With an MSRP of 3,499 USD, the Zenbook 17 Fold is of course not exactly a bargain. In this review, we will explore how well the large, foldable convertible is suited to day-to-day use and whether it is indeed a viable mobile companion. While the Zenbook 17 Fold does not currently have any direct competitors, Lenovo announced the new ThinkPad X1 Fold with a 16-inch OLED display at this year's IFA.

Case - Zenbook Fold with a Metal Chassis

After initially unboxing the Zenbook 17 Fold, users will be presented with a large 17-inch tablet that feels significantly more massive than normal Android or iOS tablets. The device is essentially all screen surrounded by a rubberized frame with a width of around 6 mm (~0.24 in). The metal nature of the construction is apparent from the back as well as the edges and there is an additional cover for the hinge on the back that includes a convenient stand. The Zenbook 17 Fold leaves a very premium impression overall and we did not notice any flaws in the build quality. Regardless, the rubberized frame attracts dust and the touchscreen is fairly susceptible to fingerprints, although they can be quickly removed.

There are various use cases for the Zenbook 17 Fold. While simply using it like a tablet is an option, we found setting it up on a desk to be able to work normally on it the most comfortable option. The included Bluetooth keyboard or other Bluetooth input devices can then be set down in front of it. Furthermore, it is possible to use the convertible in portrait mode by bending the screen in the center. Finally, the Fold can of course also be used in laptop mode. As soon as the (magnetically locked) Bluetooth keyboard is placed on the bottom half of the display, the bottom part of the OLED screen is switched off for an experience that is similar to a traditional 12.5-inch laptop with 1920 x 1280 pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The hinge leaves a solid impression and has been confirmed to last for 30000 cycles according to Asus. Since the case is not meant to be opened by users, there are no maintenance options.

With a total weight slightly above 1.8 kg / ~3.97 lbs (1517 g tablet + 307 g keyboard / ~3.34 lbs tablet + ~0.68 lbs keyboard), the Zenbook 17 Fold is not exactly lightweight. Similarly, its thickness of slightly above 3 cm (~1.18 in) when folded up means it also is not very compact. Thus, a traditional 13-inch laptop has the advantage in terms of portability. The 65-watt charger weighs an additional 225 grams (~0.50 lbs).

Connectivity - Zenbook with Thunderbolt 4

The Zenbook 17 Fold offers two USB type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support as well as a 3.5mm audio jack. The ports have been distributed with the respective use cases in mind. When using the Fold as a tablet, one of the ports is located on the bottom left, making it suitable to be used for charging. The other USB port can then be found on the top. While this is still acceptable for USB thumbdrives, it is not exactly practical for external drives. In laptop mode, this port is located in the center on the right.

Communication

Asus uses the modern Intel AX211 Wi-Fi module, which already supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard. We were able to connect to the 6-GHz network of our Asus reference router without any issues during our testing and the transfer rates are very high. There is no LTE or 5G modem, however.

Webcam

Aside from an IR camera for Windows Hello facial recognition, Asus also integrates a 5-MP camera that captures images at 2560 x 1920 pixels (4:3) or 2560 x 1440 pixels (16:9). Video can be recorded at up to 1080p with 30 FPS. Compared to traditional 720p or 1080p modules, the image sharpness is noticeably better. Additionally, there are a couple of software features available such as motive tracking or background filters.

Input Devices - Touchscreen and Bluetooth Keyboard

The package includes a compact Bluetooth keyboard with an integrated clickpad that can be magnetically attached to the tablet, enabling users to transport both it and the device together. The typing experience is decent thanks to the 1.4mm key travel, but the keyboard is unfortunately not backlit, which has noticeable ramifications for practical use. While the clickpad (10.5 x 6.2 cm / ~4.13 x 2.44 in) is decent as well and reliably recognizes gestures, clicks are somewhat loud. The keyboard can be charged via USB-C.

The capacitive touchscreen is of course also available for inputs. However, the official lack of stylus support according to Asus is a notable limitation. The manufacturer's justification for this is preventing damge to the screen's surface, which unlike traditional touchscreens comes without any additional protective layers. On our test device (which was used as a demo device on the IFA), there is a slight dent in the display surface with defective pixels. Thus, there may be something to this claim and users should handle the Zenbook 17 Fold with care. As with other smartphones and tablets, regular pens with a rubber tip can still be used.

Viewing angles
Viewing angles

The 17-inch OLED touchscreen has a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels and an aspect ratio of 4:3. While it makes an excellent subjective impression, the fold line in the center can become noticeable depending on the viewing angle and reflections much like on other foldable devices (such as smartphones). However, the image is not distorted and it is not distracting in practice. The Fold does not offer a fast refresh rate. The viewing angles are great and there is no backlight bleeding thanks to the OLED panel. Asus includes a few features to counteract burn-in from static images. They include enabling a screensaver after 30 minutes of inactivity as well as pixel shift, which very slightly moves the pixels. This is not noticeable in practice. Aside from the brightness, the color temperature can also be adjusted automatically via the ambient light sensor.

The results of the brightness measurements match our expectations for current OLED panels on mobile devices. We measured around 330 nits in SDR mode, although the contrast ratio is still extremely high due to the low black value. HDR mode (which needs to be manually enabled via the settings) allows for a brightness of up to 560 nits in small sections of the screen. When displaying an almost entirely bright image, this value drops to ~380 nits.

The MyAsus app contains multiple profiles (sRGB, P3) with "Native" being the default setting. At first, the grayscale looks very promising with low deviations from the P3 reference color space and a color temperature that comes very close to the ideal value. Unfortunately, we discovered significant color deviations in our professional analysis (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) with the CalMAN software, which remain present in all other modes.

Since we were unable to alleviate the color deviation issues through our calibration attempt, we cannot provide an appropriate profile here. While the OLED panel is still well suited to day-to-day use, the color deviations are too high for serious media editing work. The P3 color space can be displayed in its entirety.

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
1.08 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.55 ms rise

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 ≤ 65 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 65 % 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 19480 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

We made some notable observations regarding PWM flickering. The typical and potentially distracting 240-Hz flickering is present on all brightness levels from 0 to 65 %. From 66 to 99 %, DC dimming is used and we measured no flickering at all at 100 % brightness. Although the DC dimming frequency is only 60 Hz, the small amplitude makes this flickering significantly less problematic.

Like on other Asus devices with OLED panels, there is a software feature called flicker-free OLED, which reduces flickering even at lower brightness settings. As soon as the user decreases the brightness, a hint pops up and advises users to avoid setting the normal Windows brightness setting to below 60 % and instead use the software to further reduce the luminance of the panel step by step. This results in DC dimming staying enabled to avoid problematic flickering at 240 Hz. Contrary to Asus' recommendation, however, the Windows brightness should be allowed to drop below 70 %. The feature works, although a fully integrated solution would have been less of a hassle.

Outdoor use is heavily dependent on how bright the environment is and whether the sun is shining. On cloudy days, reflections are still noticeable, but usually everything on the screen remains discernible. Under sunlight, the relatively low SDR brightness may become a problem, since it cannot adequately compensate for reflections and glare.

Performance - Zenbook 17 Fold with an Energy-Efficient Alder Lake CPU

Asus currently only offers one configuration of the Zenbook 17 Fold that features an Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1-TB PCIe SSD. Instead of a normal Alder Lake-U chip, the laptop relies on a particularly energy-efficient chip (previously named ULV). According to Intel, the Core i7-1250U reaches a peak consumption of 29 watts and a typical TDP of just 9 watts.

 
 

Testing Conditions

Various power profiles can be selected from within the MyAsus app (silent mode, standard mode, performance mode) with the standard mode being the default. Although all three profiles are generally suitable for daily use, the performance mode is recommended for gaming since there are significant differences in terms of the GPU performance. However, the fans are more noisy in this mode. The following table shows the respective TDP values. While we performed all benchmarks and measurements using the performance mode, we will also determine the impact of the other modes when appropriate.

Power profile CPU PL2 CPU PL1 Peak fan noise
Silent mode 29 watts ~10.5 watts not noticeable
Standard mode 29 watts ~14 watts 27.9 dB(A)
Performance mode 29 watts ~16 watts 43.4 dB(A)

Processor - Intel Core i7-1250U

The Core i7-1250U is an Alder Lake-U processor with two fast performance and eight efficiency cores (10 cores & 12 threads total). However, the power limits compared to the "normal" Core i7-1255U are lower and Asus sticks to Intel's 29-watt peak power draw specification. Under prolonged load, the power draw remains in the 16-to-16-watt range, which is a fairly decent result considering the TDP presets. When set to standard mode, the CPU performance takes a very slight hit that - unlike the quieter fan - is not noticeable. The performance remains consistent in battery mode; additional CPU benchmarks can be found on our CPU benchmark page.

System Performance

During daily use, the Zenbook 17 Fold is a responsive device partially due to the fast PCIe SSD. The benchmark results are decent as well. The benchmark results are also decent. The fact that Windows has not been optimized for touch inputs quickly becomes apparent in practice. That being said, there have been significant advancements since Windows 10 and the older ThinkPad X1 Fold and the distribution of windows across screens is notably much better on the Asus. Switching to laptop mode when placing the keyboard on the bottom part (which disables the screen in that area) works well and the positioning of the desktop icons remains consistent. Only the windows frequently have to be resized and active applications do not always change in size.

Storage Solution

Asus uses a fast Samsung PCIe-4.0 SSD (PM9A1) with a capacity of 1 TB. After first setting up the device, about 905 GB is available to the user. While the transfer rates are excellent at above 6 GB/s, the performance drops drastically after just a few minutes. This should not affect normal use and we did not notice any limitations during our testing. Temperature constraints are a likely culprit for the issues and a problem of a large portion of fast PCIe-4.0 SSDs. Additional SSD benchmarks can be found here.

GPU Performance

GPU-Z - Iris Xe Graphics G7
GPU-Z - Iris Xe Graphics G7

One peculiarity of the Core i7-1250U is its slightly slower iGPU, more specifically the Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs (core clock of up to 950 MHz), which is also integrated into many Core i5 processors. During day-to-day use, the performance is still sufficient and high-resolution videos can be watched without any issues. Since the Zenbook 17 Fold struggles to smoothly run many titles even at low settings, it is barely suitable for gaming. We recommend the performance mode to users who insist on gaming, since other modes incur a GPU performance deficit of around 50 %. For gaming at home, an external GPU can be connected via Thunderbolt, although it should be noted that the processor may become a bottleneck for faster external solutions.

The GPU performance is consistent both under prolonged stress and in battery mode. Additional GPU benchmarks are available here.
