Asus ROG Flow X16 Laptop Review

Asus' ROG Flow X16 is a 16-inch convertible that remains permanently cool despite its compact design and 140 watts of power, thus performing better than other upper-class notebooks while also remaining quieter.

A 1,100 nit-strong mini-LED display makes its debut in the Asus ROG Flow X16, which also derives its uniqueness from its convertible design.

An RTX 3070 Ti with a 125 watts of TGP makes it a real gaming notebook with high-end multimedia features hotly anticipated by many.

The Asus ROG Flow X16 forms Asus' 2-in-1 gaming laptop series together with its popular and almost just-as-unique sibling, the ROG Flow X13 from last year, as well as the ROG Flow Z13 (2-in1 tablet).

The 16-inch QHD display in a 16:10 format offers an OLED-like black level thanks to mini-LED and also advertises DCI-P3 color space coverage for professional image editing.

The touchscreen with pen input support is conceivably useful for creative work, and AMD's Ryzen 6900HS also promises a lot of potential.

Our sample model of the Asus Rog Flow X16 with a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD does not yet appear to be widely available.

The Asus ROG Flow X16 offers four USB 3.2 Gen2 ports, two of which are Type A, while the other two are Type C and both support DisplayPort and Power Delivery up to 100 watts.

The ROG Flow series features the xGM port for an optional graphics dock (eGPU) that accommodates a GeForce RTX 3080 (laptop GPU).

In addition, the ROG XG Mobile (that we have previously reviewed) offers additional ports, such as GBit LAN and a full-size DisplayPort.

There is also a 3.5 mm audio jack, as well as the power socket for the 240 watt power supply.
