Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED review - Extreme laptop with a special trick

The most powerful Zenbook is the Pro 16X with an Intel Core i9-12900H and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. Supplemented by 4K OLED, a touchscreen and stylus input as well as an Asus Dial, the notebook is aimed at demanding users from the creative industry. But it can also double as a slim gamer or workstation.

Zenbooks are usually extravagant laptops with unusual features and an interesting design. The most unusual representative of the series may well be the Zenbook 17 Fold. The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED looks almost sterling alongside the foldable laptop, but as soon as you open the display, the Zenbook 17 still stands out among many other notebooks. This is due to AAS Ultra Cooling, for which the keyboard is folded up together with the screen. The keyboard is placed at an ergonomic, 7° degree angle, which supposedly provides 30% more airflow. Our review reveals that the laptop does not always have a performance advantage, but it can maintain low operating temperatures for long periods of time.

Furthermore, the Zenbook Pro 16X is full of interesting features. Full RGBW backlighting for the keyboard, an Asus Dial and a stylus input are included, as well as a strong OLED display with complete DisplayP3 color space coverage. Last but not least, we should also mention the Zenbook's strong hardware. An Intel Core i9-12900H, 32 GB LPDDR5 and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 are installed here and are cooled by a vapor chamber. The Pantone validated 16-inch laptop in a metal case thus achieves high scores in many categories. In terms of price, the studio laptop is in a tolerable range, with Asus asking around US$3000.

We have selected various 16-inch notebooks from our database as comparison devices. Since the Asus ZenBook Pro 16X OLED is relatively expensive, it is in direct competition with some workstations with professional graphics chips such as the MSI CreatorPro Z16P or the HP ZBook Studio 16 G9. Gaming laptops such as the Corsair Voyager A1600 can also be considered as a good alternative to the Asus laptop. Those who prefer simplicity to extravagance should take a look at Asus' VivoBook Pro 16X OLED, which can also be equipped with similar features as the ZenBook.

Case - Unusual in every detail

Asus always presents laptops with unique designs, and the ZenBook 16X OLED is no exception. Even the laptop's packaging is unusual. When you open the packaging for the first time, you notice that the design of the laptop is reflected in the packaging. Again, we find a concentric pattern around a stylized A. Star Trek fans might find this laptop particularly interesting for that reason alone. Like the keyboard, the up arrow is RGB backlit. The many edges on the notebook are softened by gentle bevels, which, however, retain an aggressive look. At times, the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED looks more like a gaming laptop.

When you open the dark gray laptop, the keyboard is raised by about 2 cm at the back. This is supposed to ensure better ventilation for the hardware and a better hand position when typing. Asus designates the system as "AAS Ultra Cooling" and states that it confers an advantage of 30% increased air flow. The laptop's maximum opening angle is around 145°. Despite the complicated folding mechanism, opening is easy and can be done with one hand, and it appears delicate and stable at the same time. The screen seems to float in the air a few millimeters above the base. Unfortunately, the folding mechanism is also slightly loose, so the screen may rattle slightly during vibrations. A combination of high-quality materials otherwise provides the case with a feeling of stability, with lots of glass and aluminum making up the laptop's surfaces. 

The Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is not a featherweight, but it hardly stands out among competitors with strong graphics cards. The entire comparison field with graphics chips equivalent to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 is on par in terms of size and weight. Laptops with a GA107 graphics chip (RTX 3050 and RTX A2000) are around 400 to 500 grams lighter.

Equipment - Meager port selection

Two USB-C ports and one USB-A port - you won't find many more peripheral connections on the notebook. Asus distributes the ports very sparingly here. On the right side of the notebook you only find the card reader, HDMI and a 3.5 mm jack, making the port distribution somewhat impractical. Since all USB ports and the power supply are on the left side of the notebook, the ports may block each other when all in use. Docking solutions are the only probable remedy here in the long run.

In addition to the scarce selection of ports, the card reader delivers only average performance. We actually expect the SD card reader in a creative laptop to be top-of-the-line, but other laptops manage to deliver higher transfer rates with the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60.

Communication

Positioning the WLAN antennas can be difficult in laptops with a metal case. Asus does not appear to have made a good choice in its arrangement of the three antennas in the ZenBook Pro 16X OLED. Consequently, the upload- and download speeds fall far below the capabilities of the installed Intel AX211 module, although Asus has installed an amplifier with automatic switching between two of the antennas.

Webcam

There are two cameras in the ZenBook. An infrared camera handles the user identification process via facial recognition. Another webcam with a Full HD sensor is right next to it, offering good image quality and performing well in low ambient light. According to the laptop's user manual, it should also be possible to use the IR camera in a fully dark room. Unfortunately, we were unable to activate feature for purposes of testing. However, other AI features are available that are intended to improve image quality.

Security

3D facial recognition via IR webcam and a fingerprint scanner are available for logging into Windows. The inbuilt Intel Core i9-12900H also has security features such as TPM2.0 and SecureBoot. 

Accessories

Accessories for the Asus ZenBook Pro 16X also include the packaging, which can serve as a raised platform upon which the laptop can be placed. In the box we find an Asus Pen 2.0 with the accompanying charging cable and three additional pen tips for differing frictional properties and hardness, a power adapter and a LAN adapter. All accessories can be conveniently stowed away in the box.

Maintenance

Upgradability was unlikely to have been a top priority in the development of the Asus Zenbook Pro 16X. Once the base cover is removed, only the NVMe SSD is replaceable.

Warranty

The Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is sold worldwide with a two-year warranty. However, there are differences in the services offered, depending on the region, so interested buyers should check with their supplier before purchasing.

Input devices - Zenbook with Asus Dial, stylus, touchscreen and haptic pad

Keyboard, touchpad, touchscreen, Asus Dial and Asus Pen 2.0 - Asus has left no stone unturned in its selection of input methods. Unfortunately, we do not always find the arrangement of the individual elements to be practical here. Too often the individual elements get in each other's way.

Keyboard

Lighting options in MyAsus
Lighting options in MyAsus

The angle at which the keyboard is placed makes typing on the Zenbook much more comfortable than on a flat laptop. RGBW lighting ensures perfect visibility of the keys. Every single key can be individually adjusted. The chiclet keyboard with N-key rollover also offers a key travel of  1.7 mm. So the keyboard's ergonomics could hardly be better, if it weren't for the somewhat weak pressure point. 

Not only the keyboard is RGBW-lit here, but there is also another light strip with RBGW LEDs in the gap between the keyboard and the base, which adapts to the color of the keyboard. In dark rooms, this creates an effect similar to that of bias lighting. You can also link the laptop's lighting to system notifications in Windows, thereby making for a large notification LED. Those looking to highlight only certain keys for gaming will be disappointed. MyAsus offers only a very limited selection of lighting effects for the keyboard, so creating individual patterns is not possible.

Touchpad

Virtual NumPad
Virtual NumPad

The touchpad on the Zenbook is a little more than 15 × 9 cm. Keystrokes work quite differently on this notebook than they normally do. Neither tactile buttons nor mouse buttons have been installed here. Instead, the touchpad is pressure-sensitive and has a haptic motor that simulates a keystroke. The difference is hardly noticeable in terms of feel, but the technology is supposed to be more robust and durable than normal keys. The touchpad's glass surface is pleasant and should be very durable. The haptic feedback of the touchpad can also be switched off via the settings in Windows, but operating the notebook then feels much spongier.

As with many Asus notebooks, the Zenbook Pro 16X also offers a virtual numpad in the touchpad. Long rows of numbers can be entered quickly after a short familiarization phase. 

It is immediately noticeable that the ClickPad reacts only slowly in wintry temperatures. The mouse cursor regularly hangs when the touchpad is below 15 °C. 

Asus Dial

The Asus Dial should actually prove practical for many users, because you can use it to quickly access and adjust many controls. It also offers some options for the Adobe Creative Cloud programs, and can also emulate a Microsoft Surface Dial and its range of functions.

But when working on the laptop's keyboard, the Asus Dial constantly gets in the way. This is because it is located exactly where the heel of the hand rests when typing, so you constantly make unwanted inputs. It also doesn't seem to have palm recognition and can only be turned on and off via the ProArt Creator Hub application.

Asus Pen 2.0

The Asus Pen itself is great, there is no other way to put it. 4096 pressure levels and a sampling rate of 266 Hz ensure precise work. The stylus offers three programmable buttons that can also be used at some distance from the screen via Bluetooth connection. The pen is charged in 30 minutes via USB-C. According to Asus, this provides up to 140 hours of battery life. With the included range of writing tips, you have more control over the degree of friction between the pen and screen. But this is where the problem of the stylus starts: the screen angle and the laptop's stability are not exactly conducive to stylus work. The screen also yields slightly under pressure, making it rather impractical for pen input.

Display - Pantone validated OLED with DCI P3 color space coverage

Subpixel matrix
Subpixel matrix

The OLED display in the Zenbook Pro 16X has a resolution of 3840 × 2400. The UHD display in 16:10 format offers strong contrasts and impressive colors. Screen bleeding or uneven illumination usually do not occur in OLED displays. Display settings are adjusted via the MyAsus app and the ProArt Creator Hub. The laptop has two light sensors that adjust the picture and the screen brightness to the ambient light. We determined a maximum brightness of 360 cd/m² here. Color temperature and brightness are automatically adjusted in order to maintain perfect picture quality. The display additionally supports several HDR standards and Dolby Vision. With so many setting options, it can be easy to lose track. Color space representation, color temperature, brightness control, HDR, sensor behavior and many other factors can be personalized here. Unfortunately, the various options are spread over three different programs. One criticism of the screen is the noticeable holes in the subpixel matrix. At full brightness, small gray dots can sometimes be seen on the display.

Another feature of the Asus laptop is Asus GlideX. The preinstalled program allows for the display to be extended onto any Android or iOS device, so even older tablets can serve as an extension for the PC.

The Zenbook has several display options that influence the displayable color space. The measurements were carried out here in DisplayP3 mode. The Zenbook Pro 16X achieves almost 100% coverage of DisplayP3 and sRGB. Around 88% of the color space is reproduced in Adobe RGB.

The screen in many Asus laptops is Pantone validated, and the corresponding sticker can be found on the Zenbook Pro 16X. This certificate states that the laptop reproduces the approximately 4000 Pantone colors very accurately. In the full DisplayP3 color space that the laptop can display, however, there are more than a billion colors. We checked for deviations via Calman ColorChecker and Xrite i1 Pro 2. Validating the measurements can be difficult with the many settings that affect color reproduction on this laptop. This might be one of the reasons why Asus includes its own color calibration software in the ProArt Creator Hub. This also requires an Xrite i1 Display Pro or i1 Display Plus colorimeter. However, the app does not appear to be compatible with the i1 Pro 2 we used. Asus also already stores several color profiles that can be accessed via the Windows display settings.

We repeated the measurements of the color deviations several times at different settings and came up with strongly varying results for the color deviations. We also covered the RGB ambient light sensor during testing in order to avoid falsification of the results. The lowest color deviations were achieved in the DisplayP3 color space with the DisplyP3 ICC profile provided by Asus and the activated DisplayP3 screen mode. The average color deviations here are only ΔΕ 1.27.

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. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 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 (34 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 59 Hz ≤ 80 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 59 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 80 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 59 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18205 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

As is typical for OLED displays, the laptop's screen sometimes flickers quite strongly if you look only at the measurement results. In truth, only a rolling strip of the screen goes black. However, this is a normal occurrence in OLED displays. If we tried to measure the flickering further away from the screen, we would hardly get a result. Hence, depending on the user, the flickering of OLED displays is not noticed at all or is sometimes perceived as very annoying. Only your own experience can decide here.

The screen's brightness should ensure good readability outdoors. However, if the ambient light is unfavorable for the monitor, refractions in the OLED and strong reflections on the reflective screen surface become visible.

Color reproduction and perceptible brightness hardly change when you change the viewing angle of the Zenbook's screen. The OLED panel is extremely viewing-angle stable.

Performance - AAS and Vapor-Chamber ensure low temperatures in the Core i9

According to the product page of the Asus Zenbook Pro16X OLED, the multimedia laptop is only available with the Intel Core i9-12900H and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. You can choose between 16 or 32 GB of RAM. There is a little more choice for the installed hard drive. Our review sample has 32 GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB hard drive.

The studio laptop's hardware is clearly designed for complex applications. Image and video editing, 3D rendering and a wide variety of current games are handled without issue.

Power Control and Testing Conditions

MyAsus Power Control
MyAsus Power Control

A large number of settings can be set via the MyAsus application that change the notebook's performance readiness. Three different performance options (Silent mode, Standard mode, Performance mode) are available in mains operation. The three modes more or less influence the available performance of the GPU and CPU.

In Performance mode as well as in Standard mode, the Intel Core i9's boost power amounts to a strong 120 watts, while it is supplied with a maximum of 45 watts in Silent mode. The high-end processor's continuous power is 85 watts in both Standard and Performance mode. But in Standard mode, the laptop limits itself after a good five minutes, with core power shrinking to around 75 watts. 

If the graphics chip and processor work together, the amount of power available for the processor shrinks to around 40 watts. Depending on the performance mode, continuous power is also reduced after a while; to around 30 watts in Standard mode and 20 watts in Silent mode. The Nvidia GeForce 3060 is allowed to work with around 83 watts in the stress test with Performance mode set. In Standard and Silent mode, this is 60 watts. If only the graphics card is stressed, for example via Furmark, its continuous power increases to up to 95 watts.

Asus specifies a system TDP of up to 140 watts. This value is just barely reached in our test. We determined a maximum of 137 watts of combined power from the CPU and GPU in our logs.

All benchmarks were run in Performance mode. Volume- and power measurements were created according to the requirements of the respective tests.

Processor

The Intel Core i9-12900H is one of the most powerful Intel processors for laptops. In the Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, the processor is able to work at high performance for long periods of time. With up to 80 watts distributed over six P and eight E cores, it quickly cleaves through pending tasks and thus achieves good scores. The processor accelerates quickly up to 5 GHz and, thanks to 20 threads, is able to process a wide variety of tasks simultaneously.

The only thing that stands out here is the somewhat timid power control. The processor sometimes only reaches its full performance after a long period of load and the Zenbook's fans delay in firing up. So the laptop remains as quiet as possible for a long time, but in doing so, cannot achieve top performance in the benchmarks that demand short-term performance only. In this respect, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme G5 proves to be a tough opponent for the Zenbook. Even without AAS, the laptop with a supposedly weaker processor manages an equal or higher performance in almost all processor benchmarks. On the other hand, regarding the benchmarks of creative applications such as Blender, the Zenbook completes upcoming tasks faster than the ThinkPad. So Asus appears to have made the right adjustments here when fine-tuning the device.

System Performance

Regarding benchmarks in system performance, the Asus Zenbook 16X OLED has a strong advantage over the ThinkPad X1 Extreme for the first time. The powerful studio laptop from Asus is able provide its graphics card with at least 20 watts more than the Lenovo laptop. So it's hardly surprising that our review device with its vapor chamber scores excellently in the system performance benchmarks. According to Asus, the Zenbook Pro 16X has a total TDP of 140 watts at its disposal.

The strengths of the notebook are also evident in its responsivity and extremely quick reaction times. Regardless of the performance mode set, the laptop does not display any weaknesses in everyday use. Practically every application starts faster than average. Whether Blender, Fusion 360, Darktable or DaVinci Resolve, the laptop performs well in video editing, 3D applications and other programs. The large amount of RAM and its high bandwidth is likely to be partly responsible for this.

DPC Latency

We ran the DPC latency test twice on this notebook. On the first attempt, the Zenbook 16X almost crashed. Just a few more milliseconds would have forced Windows Watchdog to carry out an emergency shutdown. But this behavior did not repeat itself despite deliberate attempts on our part. Therefore, we assume that this was a one-off.

The YouTube 4K60Hz test gave no reason for complaint. Only two frames were missed.

The Samsung PM9A1 installed in our review device is very fast. The transfer rates of the hard drive are very high, and none of the comparison devices have a faster hard drive. However, you should not ignore the short drops in the transfer speed, which indicate a temperature problem in the Samsung SSD.
