Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED laptop review: Subnotebook impresses with fast AMD Ryzen 7 6800U

Premiere for the 25-watt Zen3+. Asus' new Zenbook S 13 is an extremely compact notebook weighing just over 1 kg that does not cut back on a whole lot of performance thanks to the new AMD Ryzen 7 6800U. The OLED screen ensures good image quality that is free of PWM thanks to a software solution.

The new Asus Zenbook S 13 is an ultra-mobile notebook that weighs just 1 kilogram and offers the latest technology currently available. In addition to the 2.8K OLED screen (13.3 inches), customers get the latest mobile chip from AMD, the Ryzen 7 6800U, which also includes the fast Radeon 680M integrated graphics card. Alternatively, models with Intel's latest Alder Lake chips are also available. Here we are dealing with a traditional laptop, but those who prefer a convertible should take a look at the Zenbook S 13 Flip.

Our review unit is equipped with the new AMD Ryzen 7 6800U, fast Radeon 680M graphics, 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD and a 2.8K OLED screen. At the time of writing, the Zenbook S 13 is not available in stores yet, but pricing is predicted to fall between US$ 1000 - 1500.

Case: Asus offers metal cases in four colors

Asus makes use of magnesium-aluminum alloy for the case and the Zenbook comes across as very high-quality. It is also extremely compact and mobile with a weight of just over one kilogram. Our review unit comes in the Ponder Blue color variant and looks very elegant, and the slightly roughened surfaces also feel good. However, the surfaces are also quite fingerprint sensitive. Asus offers other optional color variants, the keyboards of which also change color. In addition to white, the Zenbook S13 is also available in light green and beige.

The screen's edges are particularly thin on the sides, but the top and bottom edges of the display leave room for improvement. The Zenbook thus achieves a body-to-screen ratio of only 81%. Like in other laptops, Asus uses a so-called Ergo-Lift hinge that slightly raises the base unit at the back. This improves the fresh air supply and also enables an opening angle of 180 degrees. The hinge itself is very taught and opening it with one hand requires some skill, but there is minimal teetering when adjusting the opening angle.

The stability of the base unit itself is very good and there are no creaking sounds. The keyboard area is slightly recessed compared to the palm rest area, allowing for a keyboard with more travel. Due to the slightly raised base, the rear center area of the keyboard yields under lots of pressure, but this requires a lot of exertion and should not pose an issue in everyday use. The display lid is very stable despite its thin build.

Our version with the touchscreen weighs 1.095 kg. Models without touch support are specified by Asus as weighing 100 grams less. The Zenbook can easily be stowed in any bag or backpack. Only the Dell XPS 13 takes up noticeably less space in our comparison group in terms of depth, but is also a bit heavier.

Equipment: AMD-Zenbook is USB-4 ready

Fundamentally, the Zenbook S 13 offers a 3.5 mm headphone jack and three USB-C ports. These only support the USB 3.2 standard, but can be later upgraded to USB 4 with the full 40 GBit/s via a BIOS update, and there is no difference to the Thunderbolt 4 protocol in terms of stock specifications. According to AMD, external graphics cards will also be supported in the future, and the corresponding update should be available shortly after the Zenbook's market launch.

An up-to-date module from MediaTek is used as the Wi-Fi adapter (MT9972), which also supports the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard. At least in theory, because our US device of the Zenbook S 13 refused to connect to the 6 GHz network of our reference router from Asus. 

Nonetheless, transfer rates are very good and stable on the normal 5 GHz network (Wi-Fi 6). Support for Bluetooth 5.2 is also available.

Maintenance

The baseplate is secured with small Torx screws (T5), but in addition to the visible screws, there are two hidden under the two rear rubber feet, which themselves are glued. It hardly gets any more complicated than this. 

Once inside, there is not much that can be done in terms of maintenance or upgrades. Apart from fan cleaning and access to the M.2-2280 SSD, only the WLAN module can be replaced.

Input Devices: Asus installs a comfortable keyboard

Keyboard

For such a compact notebook, the Zenbook offers a comparatively generous key drop of 1.4 mm. The typing feel is very good overall and thanks to the precise feedback, typing longer texts poses no problems. However, the keystroke itself could be a bit quieter. The arrow keys are quite small, but otherwise the layout has no points of criticism. The power button is located at the top right of the keyboard and uses a slightly different mechanism with a shorter stroke and clicks a little louder. It also serves as a fingerprint scanner, which worked reliably in testing.

The three-stage white backlight helps in dark environments, but cannot be activated automatically via a sensor.

Touchpad & Touchscreen

The touchpad can also be used as a number pad.

The large ClickPad works very well in practice and gestures with up to four fingers are also implemented correctly. Pressing the top right corner brings up a number pad on the touchpad, which works well and proves really useful when entering a lot of numbers. The normal cursor control also functions normally. The lower half of the pad can be clicked mechanically, but as with many other laptops, this is characterized by a very loud clicking noise.

Of course, the capacitive touchscreen is also available, which works flawlessly as expected. According to Asus, an stylus is also supported, but this was not provided with our review sample.

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The Zenbook S 13 is equipped with a 16:10 OLED screen that offers a high resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 on its 13.3-inch diagonal. The subjective picture quality, with its with vivid colors and sharp content, is very good.

Asus specifies a maximum brightness of up to 550 cd/m², but this only applies to HDR content. Our measurements show a maximum of ~570 cd/m² for a small white image, which then becomes ~460 cd/m² for a near-complete white image. Unfortunately, HDR switching does not work automatically, but has to be activated manually in the Windows display settings.

Maximum brightness amounts to only 340 cd/m² for normal SDR content. The picture impression naturally benefits from the particularly low black value, which in turn leads to a very high contrast ratio. Halos are not a problem due to OLED technology and the response times are extremely fast. There are some features (e.g. pixel shifting) in the MyAsus app that are designed to prevent the burn-in of static content. An ambient light sensor for automatic brightness control, however,  is lacking.

Various settings for the color space are available in the preinstalled MyAsus app. We selected the preset "Native" mode for testing via the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2). Display quality is already very good in delivery state and there is no visible color cast or deviations in the color temperature. There are only two outliers in the colors, which are slightly above the important DeltaE-2000 deviation of 3.

Naturally, we also calibrated the panel (the corresponding profile is available for download above) and we were also able to slightly improve the average DeltaE-2000 deviation of the grayscale, but there were no changes in the colors. A calibration after purchase is therefore not really necessary. The OLED panel almost completely covers the P3 color space, so you can edit pictures/videos on the Zenbook without issue.

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
1.68 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.86 ms rise

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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).

This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.2 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 240.4 Hz ≤ 53 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240.4 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 53 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 240.4 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19657 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Brightness at 60% and additional dimming via MyAsus app. The brightness is only 6 cd/m², but there is no PWM at 240 Hz.
Brightness at 60% and additional dimming via MyAsus app. The brightness is only 6 cd/m², but there is no PWM at 240 Hz.

Like the ZenBook Pro 14 Duo,  the OLED panel of the Zenbook S 13 displays PWM flickering at 240 Hz, which can lead to impairments. On the other hand, DC dimming is used for brightness values of 54% and more. Although the frequency is 60 Hz, it is not comparable with classic PWM and the amplitude is also significantly lower, so there should be no problems with DC dimming. Asus also offers a software-based solution for reducing the screen's brightness without falling into the PWM range and there is also a corresponding notification as soon as you reduce the normal brightness below 60%. For this, there is the flicker-free OLED dimming option in the MyAsus app. Users should keep in mind that when using OLED dimming, DC dimming is always used, even if the base brightness is set to 100%.

Windows or light sources can also cause reflections indoors.

The OLED touchscreen is highly reflective, which can also cause reflections indoors. Of course, this also applies to outdoor use. Although the brightness is not so high, the very high contrast ratio helps in these situations. That said, avoiding reflections and reading screen content comfortably is not easy on bright days. Full HDR brightness in normal SDR mode would certainly be helpful here.

The viewing angle stability of the OLED screen is very good overall, but there is the typical OLED blue tinge at certain (limited) angles. Nevertheless, this does not cause any restrictions in practice.

Performance: AMD Zen3+ und RDNA2

 
 

Testing Conditions

We performed the following benchmarks and measurements under the (default) Balanced power mode in the MyAsus app, since the optional Performance mode (only available when plugged in) initially has no impact on TDP limits (30/25W each) and only leads to slightly more stable performance under permanent load, which is certainly not a crucial factor in such a mobile device. Balanced mode is simply more appropriate for the device in everyday use, and if you do indeed want to max out the device, you can easily switch to Performance mode. Nonetheless, we'll also look at the effects of Performance mode in some test areas. In the optional Whisper mode, processor consumption is limited to 12 watts.

Like its Ryzen 7 5800U predecessor, the new AMD Ryzen 7 6800U continues to use 8 cores (16 threads), which are now manufactured using a 6 nm process. AMD specifies a TDP range of 15-28 watts for the chip, and in the case of the Zenbook, this is 30 watts for short periods of load and a stable 25 watts afterwards. Here we see a clear difference to the current Alder Lake processors from Intel, which have significantly higher power limits of more than 50 watts at their disposal.

The Cinebench R15 multi-loop clearly shows that the Ryzen 7 6800U only loses a little performance after the first few runs before operating stably at 25 watts. However, there is no noticeable performance advantage over the old Ryzen 7 5800U either. The CB loop shows no benefits in performance mode. 

The real competitor for the Ryzen 7 is the new Core i7-1255U, which we were able to test in the Dell Inspiron 14. This consumes up to 39 watts for short periods of time before quickly leveling out at 23 watts, which is comparable to the Ryzen 7 6800U. However, the multi-core performance [of the Core i7-1255U] is significantly lower (-30% during the CB loop). In fact, the Alder Lake P Core i7-1260P chip is comparable in terms of multi-core performance, although it naturally requires significantly more power (a constant 38 watts) due to the additional performance cores.

In terms of raw single-core performance, AMD and Apple are practically on par (although Apple is much more efficient here), but Intel gains the lead here thanks to the performance cores. However, this comes at the cost of higher clock rates and higher power consumption, which also usually leads to increased fan activity.

All in all, the new Ryzen 7 6800U, with its power limits, is a suitable processor for compact laptops. However, performance is somewhat reduced in battery mode because the processor is only allowed to consume a maximum of 18 watts, which drops to 16 watts after a few seconds. This does not affect single-core performance, while multi-core performance is about 25% lower. In Whisper mode at 12 watts, multi-core performance drops by around 35%.

More benchmarks are available in our tech section and we also recommend taking a look at our extensive CPU efficiency comparison review, where we compare the new AMD processor with the current chips from Apple and Intel.

System Performance

With the fast AMD processor, 16 GB of LPDDR5-6400 RAM and the PCIe 4.0 SSD, the Zenbook is a very powerful and responsive system. This is also confirmed by the synthetic benchmarks, in which our review device is almost always ahead of the competition. No problems were detected during normal use either.

Storage Devices

Samsung's M.2-2280 SSD is extremely fast.
Samsung's M.2-2280 SSD is extremely fast.

Asus uses a fast PCIe 4.0 SSD from Samsung. The PM9A1 (OEM version of the 980 Pro) offers a storage capacity of 1 TB, with around 904 GB available after the first start-up. In the benchmarks, the M.2-2280 drive achieves very high transfer rates of more than 6 GB/s and is thus currently one of the fastest SSDs in the mobile sector. Moreover, performance remains stable even under constant load despite the somewhat unfavorable positioning right next to the CPU, which not all devices with fast PCIe 4.0 SSDs can manage. More SSD benchmarks are available here.
