Intel Arc A370M debut: Asus ZenBook Flip 15 Q539ZD 2-in-1 review

Who needs GeForce MX anymore? The Zenbook Flip 15 is back with 12th gen Intel Core H CPUs and the new Intel Arc A370M GPU to replace last year's Core U options and the GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q, respectively. While CPU performance is insanely fast for a convertible, perhaps the GeForce MX550 would have been the better move.

The latest Asus Zenbook Flip 15 Q539 succeeds the older Zenbook Flip 15 Q538 that shipped with 11th gen Intel Core U-series CPUs and the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q GPU. The newer Zenbook model utilizes a very similar chassis with just minor external changes, but it's the internal updates that have our attention. Asus has equipped the 2022 model with a 12th gen Core i7-12700H CPU and a discrete Intel Arc A370M GPU whereas most other convertible laptops only come with Core U-series CPUs and integrated graphics. The performance boost should be extreme when compared to older generation models as a result at least in terms of processor performance.

The Asus also happens to be one the first widely available models with an Intel Arc A370M. The 30 W GPU is meant to be an alternative to the GeForce MX series and a faster solution to the now popular integrated Iris Xe series.

Alternatives to the Zenbook Flip 15 Q539 include other 15.6-inch or 16-inch convertibles like the HP Envy x360 15, HP Spectre x360 15, LG Gram 16 2-in-1, Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 15, or Lenovo Yoga C740-15. Our test unit can be found online for a retail price of $1400 USD.

Case — Blue All Over

Asus utilizes very similar aluminum alloy chassis materials across most of its Zenbook models including the Zenbook Flip 15 Q539. Thus, the smooth matte blue exterior will look and feel instantly familiar if you've ever held a newer Zenbook Pro 14 or Zenbook Pro 15. A unique superficial feature of the Zenbook Flip 15 Q539/538 is the chrome-cut edges and corners that aren't present on other Zenbook models.

Chassis rigidity is excellent from top to bottom. The lid in particular is less prone to warping than on both the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 15 or LG Gram 16 2-in-1 for a rigidity level that's similar to the XPS 15 or HP Spectre x360 series. Pushing down on the keyboard center still warps the surface slightly more than on the aforementioned Dell or HP system, but it's nothing major.

In terms of size and weight, the ZenBook Flip 15 Q539ZD is nearly identical to the last generation ZenBook Flip 15 UX563FD despite all the external and internal differences. The newer model is able to offer significantly faster performance without needing to be larger or heavier than its predecessor. Users looking for something lighter and more travel-friendly can consider the LG Gram 16 2-in-1 or Galaxy Book Pro 360 15, but these alternatives come equipped with slower Core U-series CPUs and no dedicated graphics.

Chrome-cut edges on all four sides of the base and lid help distinguish the new Zenbook Flip 15 from older designs and other convertibles

Connectivity — Good Selection, Awkward Positioning

Port options have changed significantly from the older ZenBook Flip 15 UX563FD. The integrated HDMI port and dual Thunderbolt 4 ports in particular are great to see for connecting a host of accessories and external monitors. Port positioning is questionable, however, as the two Thunderbolt ports and 3.5 audio jack are all packed very closely together along the right edge where an external mouse would usually be. The power button is also nearby and so it can be easy to accidentally put the laptop to sleep.

SD Card Reader

Interestingly, there is a huge discrepancy between AS SSD and real-world results when testing our UHS-II MicroSD card. While the benchmark claims a sequential read rate of over 253 MB/s, files would only transfer at 67 MB/s from our test card to desktop. Moving 1 GB of pictures from card to desktop would take just over 15 seconds compared to half that on the XPS 15.

The older Zenbook Flip 15 Q538 series would integrate a full-size SD reader instead of a MicroSD one.

The spring in the integrated MicroSD reader is somewhat weak and so ejection is more difficult than it needs to be. Note that the MicroSD card must be inserted upside-down

Webcam

The integrated webcam is only 720p whereas other 15.6-inch models like the Razer Blade 15 are shipping with higher resolution 1080p webcams. Windows Hello is supported and the webcam can be disabled for privacy concerns with the F10 key.

Maintenance

The bottom panel requires both a T5 Torx wrench and Philips screwdriver to remove. Annoyingly, the model hides two screws underneath the rubber feet that must be removed as well.

Owners are granted direct access to the single M.2 2280 slot and internal battery while the WLAN and RAM modules are soldered.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the paperwork and AC adapter. A one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — Comfortable Clickpad

Keyboard

Key feedback hasn't changed very much from the previous generation ZenBook 15 UX534FTC or Zenbook Flip 15 UX563FD. The keys on the ZenBook Flip 15 Q539ZD feel firmer than the keys on a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 15 while being slightly softer than the keys on the HP Spectre x360 15, HP EliteBook, or LG Gram 16 2-in-1. The typing experience isn't anything extraordinary if you've worked on a consumer laptop before.

A three-level keyboard backlight comes standard. Seven other colors are available other than white as shown below unlike on most other convertible laptops. We find the blue and teal colors to be easier on the eyes than pure white.

Touchpad

The clickpad (13 x 7.5 cm) is slightly smaller than the ones on the LG Gram 16 2-in-1 (13.2 x 8.3 cm) or HP Envy x360 15 (12.5 x 8 cm). The wider length is nonetheless helpful considering the wide 16:9 aspect ratio. Gliding is smooth with only a little bit of sticking at slower speeds for more accurate clicks. It's ultra-responsive as well due to the fast 120 Hz refresh rate of the display.

Feedback when pressing on clickpads is usually too spongy or light, but the feedback on this Zenbook is actually quite firm and satisfying. The drawback to the firmer click is louder-than-usual clatter when pressed.

Display — First 120 Hz 3K OLED Touchscreen

(June 27, 2022 update: The brightness issue has been resolved. In order to reach 550 nits, both HDR must be enabled via Windows and the onscreen content must support HDR mode. Otherwise, maximum brightness will be limited to 340 to 350 nits every other time. More details can be found here.) 

Asus advertises a peak brightness of 550 nits, but SDR content is limited to just 350 nits. We can confirm the full DCI-P3 coverage and Pantone validated colors with our own independent measurements.

A pulse-width modulation of 240 Hz is present on all brightness levels including the maximum setting of 350 nits and 550 nits. The MyAsus software includes features to reduce the intensity of PWM, but they involve dimming the panel even further.

Display quality is excellent outside of the aforementioned brightness issues. The 16:9 3K resolution (2880x1620) is more fitting for a 15.6-inch form factor in terms of readability compared to 4K. The unique resolution and fast 120 Hz native refresh rate help separate this Zenbook from competing models.

Curiously, the ZenBook Flip 15 Q539ZD ships with the default refresh rate set to 60 Hz. Users will have to manually change the refresh rate to 120 Hz via Windows or MyAsus to experience the higher refresh rate of the panel. We would love to see adaptive sync support on future models.

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
1.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.5 ms rise
↘ 0.6 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.4 ms rise
↘ 0.4 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.5 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 ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240.4 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % 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 19959 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average at best when under shade as reflections from the glossy display are inevitable. Keep in mind that most content will be limited to 350 nits as 550 nits is only attainable with HDR content. If you're just browsing the web, emailing, or doing spreadsheet work outdoors, for example, then you will likely not benefit from the extra-bright 550 nit mode. Most 15.5-inch consumer convertibles top out in the 300 to 350 nit range in comparison.

Performance — 12th Gen Intel Core H Series

 
 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Performance mode via both Windows and the MyAsus software prior to running any benchmarks below for the highest possible scores. It's highly recommend that owners become familiar with MyAsus as important settings relating to screen refresh rate, fan profiles, display colors, and even OLED care are all toggled here.

Processor

CPU performance is one of the fastest of any convertible laptop as nearly all of them run on slower Core U-series processors. Users are essentially getting the raw processing horsepower of a gaming laptop in a convertible form factor. Upgrading from an older 10th gen Core i7-10510U or 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 convertible will entail a multi-thread performance boost of 3x to 4x with our 12th gen Core i7-12700H.

Running CineBench R15 xT in a loop shows good performance sustainability even if the processor in the Asus is slower than the average Core i7-12700H in our database by 5 to 10 percent. Convertible laptops generally have more limited Turbo Boost potential in comparison such as on the LG Gram 16 2-in-1 or older Asus ZenBook Flip 15 UX563FD.

Storage Devices — Just One Drive

Our test unit ships with a high-performance SK Hynix HFM001TD3JX013N PCIe3 M.2 SSD for sequential read and write rates of over 3000 MB/s each. The drive exhibits no issues sustaining maximum transfer rates for long periods when running DiskSpd in a loop. However, it's a little disappointing to not have any PCIe4 options since the Zenbook is supposed to be Asus' premier prosumer series.

The competing LG Gram 16 2-in-1 offers two M.2 2280 storage slots compared to only one on our Asus.
