Svelte performer. The latest Zenbook Pro features an updated GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU alongside the same i7-7700HQ CPU and NVMe storage (not to mention a touchscreen). How have performance, battery life, and emissions been affected by the updated configuration?

The ZenBook Pro UX550VE is certainly an interesting device and lived-up to the hype it created to some degree. If users can look past ASUS’ mistake on the cooling system and the port positioning then they would be greeted by an amazing laptop with an elegant design, powerful internals, immersive speakers, rock-solid build, stellar battery life, beautiful display, and excellent keyboard. Truth be told, the pros of the device actually outweigh its cons. The biggest problem consumers will face, however, is the notebook’s price, which starts at a staggering Php 104,995. Either way, ASUS did a good job in making the ZenBook Pro UX550VE a powerful yet slim device.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Laptop): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
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.
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
