This is the real laptop these days, Asus ROG FLOW X16 GV601

Even if it’s not a new semester, the desire for a laptop doesn’t stop 365 days a year, even though it’s not really necessary. Wouldn’t this be sympathetic to anyone other than gamers? Also, there are constant standards for what you want. How is the performance, whether it is good for work, whether there is any problem in playing the game, whether it is light in weight, or has a design that is easy to take with you to a coffee shop.

In fact, looking back, laptops were nothing more than portable PCs for work for office workers on business trips, and considering the current generation standards for high-definition video work and image editing, it was a performance PC for work. As such, laptops of the past were nothing more than portable business PCs.

▲ I was curious, so I brought it, the first laptop Osborne 1 weighing about 11.1kg. Also the knife is right

However, in recent years, the laptop field has undergone many changes and is newly developing. It was a heavy weapon that would go on a diet just by carrying it, but the fortress was thin and light enough to fit in a briefcase, and even had good performance. Even if you put your gaming laptop in a cafe, there is no discomfort.

It has excellent portability due to its light weight and thin thickness, and its performance is high enough to be used as a main PC. From a touchpad that replaces a mouse to an all-in-one keyboard that catches heat, voice and gesture recognition are also supported these days. Among them, the Asus ROG FLOW X16 GV601 laptop to be introduced today is also worth paying attention to.

With a convertible form factor that can rotate 360 ​​degrees in a 2-in-1 format that is popular these days, you can freely move the hinge in tablet mode, stand mode, tent mode, etc. to use it as you like. In addition, RTX 3070Ti, Ryzen 9 6900HS mobile processor, and cooling technology that effectively catches heat from these high-performance parts are added, making it excellent not only for gaming but also for work.

Similar to the ROG FLOW X13 released last year, it is a convertible gaming laptop that folds up to 360 degrees by turning the screen backwards. The exterior has a luxurious ROG pattern, and the overall appearance is very neat.

The keyboard built into the laptop is an N-Key rollover keyboard, which defines how many keys can be pressed at one time in case of rollover. The original keyboard assigns input only to the key being pressed, and multiple keys can be input at once. So, it is easy to think of it as a common simultaneous input function. In addition, it has a hotkey with 4 macro functions on the top, and with a travel distance of 1.7m, you can use it without a lot of force.

The cooling performance cannot be neglected either. The ROG’s calculated body cutouts, Frost Force technology that directs air to the internal components to keep it cool, and the five Pulsar heatsinks on the bottom seemed to showcase the realities of a gaming laptop. The variable blade thickness cooling fan reduces turbulence and improves airflow efficiency to keep the laptop cool.

In spite of the saying, ‘Isn’t it noisy when you go in like that?’, 0dB ambient cooling and silent operation mode also caught noise.

The Nebula HDR display is also powered by AUO’s AMLED technology and ROG’s own backlight algorithm. It can reduce the blooming effect that appears in some HDR, and it shines even more when using multimedia contents with high density, which is a feature of mini LED.
