Compact is the New Impact

Compact is the New Impact

Powered with up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS CPU, it provides the performance needed for demanding workloads. It also incorporates an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 GPU that enables strong performance in the latest games.

It has up to 32GB of memory which provides smooth multitasking. It uses LPDDR4X RAM which consumes 50% less power and generates less heat than typical DDR4 memory. Lastly, it has a PCIe SSD with up to 1TB capacity, which gives users ample storage with high performance for games and professional portfolios.

All this power is pack in a small 13” form factor.

Ultraportable 2-in-1

Portable 2-in-1

With a slick convertible design, the gaming laptop allows users to use different modes for different tasks. Standard laptop mode is optimal for serious gaming and multitasking. Meanwhile, tablet mode makes it possible to swipe through content or draw. You can also write handwritten notes with a compatible active stylus like the ASUS Active Pen. The 360° hinge also enables stand mode, which brings the display closer to the user. It also has a tent mode, which minimizes the device’s footprint.

The 13” chassis is slim, having only a 15.8mm thickness and lightweight at only 1.3kg. It also has a textured exterior with a wave-like design that adds style and provides a secure grip for easy carrying.

Immersive Display

Immersive Display

Its 4K Ultra HD display provides a high pixel density that is well-suited to artistic work as well as gaming. Adaptive-Sync synchronizes the panel’s refresh rate with the GPU’s to reduce lag, minimize stuttering, and eliminate visual tearing. The screen is also factory-calibrated to meet the PANTONE validation standard for color accuracy.

Unhindered Cooling

Liquid metal compound is used to improve thermal transfer from the CPU to the heat pipes. This reduces its temperatures by up to 10°C compared to standard thermal pastes.

Heat is also transferred away from the CPU, GPU, and VRM by 2 heat pipes. And these heat pipes have a smaller profile to save space while still increasing the contact area for better thermal transfers. And with the help of the new Dual Arc Flow fans, the device generates maximum airflow with minimal noise.

Crystal Clear Sound

Providing richer, and more immersive audio experience, the Flow X13 features a virtual 5.1 2-channel surround sound powered by Dolby Atmos. Its Smart Amp technology keeps onboard speakers within thermal and excursion limits. This allows users to enjoy louder and more engrossing audio experience.

The Flow X13 also features an advanced Two-Way AI Noise Cancellation to improve voice chat. This removes unwanted sounds from both input and output audio. It can be applied to any device and even on a per-app basis.

The ROG XG Mobile

ROG XG Mobile

Paired with the ROG XG Mobile, the convertible gaming laptop becomes the most powerful 13” ultraportable gaming notebook in the market. Weighing at only 1kg and with a thickness of just 29mm, it is very portable and allows gamers to play graphically demanding games anywhere thanks to up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080.

The ROG XG Mobile connects directly to the CPU with a custom PCIe 3.0 x8 interface that’s faster than Thunderbolt 4. Its interface dedicates 64Gbps of bandwidth exclusively to graphics. This results in a significantly higher performance than other eGPU’s in the market. The USB link drives the XG Mobile’s multi-port hub, which has four USB Type A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a full-sized SD card slot, and a Gigabit Ethernet port. DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0a display outputs connect directly to the external GPU.

It also has an integrated 280W power adapter that supplies both the ROG Flow X13 and ROG XG Mobile simultaneously. This means that users don’t need to carry separate power bricks.
