Asus ROG Flow X13 review: a game-ready 2-in-1

 

It's not quite the best of both worlds.

Compact convertible chassis ; Powerhouse processor ; 16:10 screen with stylus support ; Comfortable keyboard

Battery life isn’t great ; Comes in a $3,000 bundle ; Some screen wobble ; XG Mobile doesn’t always deliver 3080-level performance

Asus’ ROG Flow X13 is a 2-in-1 convertible gaming laptop, with the most powerful processor you can find in a 13-inch chassis. It comes with the XG Mobile, an external GPU that delivers high-end frame rates when it’s plugged in.

Asus ROG Flow X13 Review

 

Compact, well-built chassis ; Excellent performance from fifth-generation AMD Ryzen 9 ; Accompanying eGPU can boost graphics performance ; Comfortable keyboard ; Crisp 4K display ; 360-degree hinge

Short battery life for an ultraportable ; Pricey

A quirky 2-in-1 convertible, the Asus ROG Flow X13 offers decent gaming performance, extraordinary speed on CPU-centric tasks (thanks to a fifth-generation AMD Ryzen 9 CPU), and as compact a chassis as you’ll find on any premium gaming laptop. Plus, a...

Asus ROG Flow X13 Review: This laptop breaks all the rules

 

The Asus ROG Flow X13 is the most powerful tiny laptop you can buy, thanks to its companion eGPU that adds graphics performance. This modular setup has a few compromises, but it's still a great choice for highly mobile users.

High-end Ryzen 9 5980HS performance in a tiny laptop ; High-end GeForce RTX 3080 performance in a tiny laptop

eGPU is cumbersome on the go ; Cover for eGPU port is flimsy

Besides the Ryzen 5000 CPU, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 is the other star of this show. Sure, compared to the RTX 3080 desktop it’s a slight letdown, but it’s also completely unrealistic to expect identical performance from the laptop version of any GPU,...

Asus ROG Flow X13 review: When AMD Ryzen Met Nvidia's 30-series

 

When two become one kickass gaming laptop

Head-turning, versatile design ; Great gaming and overall performance ; Excellent battery life ; XG Mobile is a compact, portable eGPU

Keys are a bit small ; Display could be brighter and more vivid ; Expensive

The Asus ROG Flow X13 gives gamers versatility, power, endurance and innovation in one gorgeous chassis.

I Fell in Love With the Asus ROG Flow X13, but It Left Me Heartbroken

 

A 2-in-1 gaming laptop comes with a catch that turns this romance into an unrequited love affair.

Design, chassis, processor, portability

Price, no option to buy the laptop separately, graphics card, just OK battery life

Asus ROG Flow X13 Review: XG Mobile Meets Ryzen 9 5980HS

 

AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS meets Nvidia RTX 3080 in an eGPU

Subtle laptop design ; Strong multi-core CPU performance ; Comfortable keyboard ; 16:10 display ; Fast file transfer speeds

Very expensive ; XG Mobile GPU not always as good as having one in the system ; Runs hot ; Clunky, finicky XG Mobile GPU connector ; eGPU dock is proprietary and only works with one system

The Asus ROG Flow X13 with XG Mobile is an ambitious attempt at a laptop that can do it all with a light, portable eGPU with a mobile RTX 3080. While the laptop is fast, XG Mobile is finicky and doesn't always match the experience of having the GPU in...
