Asus Vivobook Pro 16X review: Creator notebook with an outstanding processor

Simply fast. Thanks to an outstanding Intel Core i9, a decent RTX 4060 and an OLED display, the VivoBook Pro 16X leaves no doubt that it is perfectly positioned for image and video editing. The hardware, especially the input devices, is also an excellent fit for a Creator notebook. However, savings have been made in other areas.

The VivoBook Pro belongs to the category of multimedia laptops aimed at ambitious home users for creative projects. A powerful processor, the current top model i9-13980HX in this case, and a mobile GPU in various configurations ensure adequate working speed. An OLED display illustrates the respective content almost realistically and the "Asus Dial" also distinguishes this model apart from simple notebooks.

The Asus VivoBook Pro 16X in review today does not resemble much of the typical Vivobooks, which start at around US$1,500. The processor and display come from the professional ProArt Studiobook series, which we have already reviewed in the form of the Asus ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED H7604. The case and many features, on the other hand, have been kept simple. The VivoBook Pro 16X thus moves in the gray area between a hyperpotent laptop for the home and a creative work device in a (too) simple guise.

Competitors on a comparable level include the Gigabyte AERO 16 OLED or the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra 16. Our review will reveal whether the Vivobook can score with its borrowings from the professional segment.

Case - Too much plastic on the Vivobook

Made entirely of black plastic, the case of the Vivobook Pro 16X makes a rather simple impression. The neon orange feet provide a splash of color. The workmanship of the base and the hinges is solid. Only minimal twisting can be elicited when the case is held by one of the front corners. Moreover, the display always stays firmly in the set angle, which reaches just over 140°.

The display lid and the bezel of the OLED screen, on the other hand, could have been better designed. Given the plastic cover, it is hardly surprising that the display can be bent. The edges are also not straight, which also makes itself manifest in the screen's unsightly curvature. In addition, there is a gap to the display frame on the right of the screen in our test model, in which dust quickly accumulated. 

The weight and size of the case are quite average for a notebook with a 16-inch screen. The Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra, for example, is slimmer and lighter. The Asus ProArt Studiobook, on the other hand, is larger and heavier.

Equipment - Everything important included and two TB4

All important ports are distributed on the left and right. Neither the range or number leave any room for criticism. Conveniently, there is a USB-A port on both sides. Video and image data can be easily copied from a camera via the SD card reader. Thanks to the LAN port, a fast network connection can be established on the desk. In addition, there are two Thunderbolt 4 ports for fast data exchange, for a docking station or for charging the battery if necessary.

SD Card Reader

With the fully-fledged SD card reader, our AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference card achieves a solid transfer rate. An average of 120 MB/s means that a full 32 GB card is copied in just under 4 minutes. It would take two minutes longer with the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra 16, for example.

Communication

Intel AX211 WLAN module
Intel AX211 WLAN module

The installed Intel AX211 WLAN module, which can be replaced, works at consistently high transfer rates. The measured values for receiving data of just under 1,700 Mbps are almost 25% above the average of all recorded values with identical hardware. Dell's XPS 15 9530, for example, scores about a third worse, although it also uses Intel's AX211.

A Gigabit LAN port from Realtek is also on board for wired transmission.

Webcam

The features of the Full HD webcam are solid. There is a mechanical shutter that has the same orange of the feet and the Esc button. In addition, an IR camera for logging in via facial recognition and a dual-array microphone are installed.

In terms of image quality, there is definitely room for improvement. Although the brightening of the video image is convincing in low ambient light, image noise increases enormously at the same time. The recording quality of the voice, on the other hand, is good. It sounds natural and is recorded evenly from different distances and speaking directions.

Maintenance

Eleven Phillips screws need to be loosened. A certain amount of force is also required to loosen the numerous plastic clamps. As so often is the case, starting next to the hinges is recommended. With a small lever tool or pick, opening up the underside without damage should be easy.

The battery, RAM, SSD and WLAN module are easily accessible and replaceable. Unfortunately, there is no second slot for an M.2 NVMe SSD.

Warranty

Asus provides a 2-year manufacturer's warranty, but limits the statutory warranty for the battery. In order to be able to use the warranty, the VivoBook has to be registered with Asus after purchase. These conditions may differ in other regions, so interested buyers should double check before purchasing.

Input Devices - Vivobook with practical dial

Keyboard

With a fully-fledged numpad, a travel of 1.4 mm (our measurement) and well-dosed back pressure, the keyboard leaves an excellent impression, even if the color accents are certainly not everyone's cup of tea. In addition, there is the three-stage, uniform keyboard backlight.

Unfortunately, the keyboard frame yields too much when typing. This is likely to be a disruptive factor, even for frequent typists who are less squeamish.

Touchpad

At 8 by 13 cm, the touchpad is pleasantly large, precise, and houses easy-to-press hidden buttons, leaving a solid impression overall. 

A control wheel can also be displayed in the upper left corner via a button in the upper right corner. This doesn't work quite as precisely and reliably as the physical wheel installed in the Asus ProArt Studiobook. Nevertheless, it earns its spot via basic functions for adjusting brightness and volume. The ProArt software can also be used to add a wide variety of functions and, for example, store key combinations for different applications.

In video editing, for example, one can scroll from frame to frame. In image editing, contrast and color settings can be accessed directly. And, of course, everything else can be controlled via the control panel, as long as the key combination is known.

Display - Color-intensive OLED without touch

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The OLED display also plays to its strengths in the VivoBook Pro 16X. The deep black and the resulting high contrast make for bright and lively colors. These are reproduced almost perfectly, even without further calibration.

The unusual resolution of 3,200 by 2,000 pixels corresponds to the 16:10 format and falls roughly in the middle between QHD and 4K. On the 16-inch display, it ensures a detailed display of high-resolution digital photos, at least in sections, without the representations becoming too tiny like in 4K.

The average-only brightness does not have any drawbacks, at least indoors. Due to the very low black value, the image appears brighter than on an IPS panel. However, the glossy surface prevents good visibility outdoors at just under 350 cd/m² in SDR mode.

Compared to similar rivals with an OLED display, the Asus VivoBook only uses a frame rate of 120 Hz, which also corresponds to the measured PWM flickering of precisely 120 Hz. Although it is much more subtle than on TN or some IPS panels, it is still perceptible for sensitive eyes. It also increases to 240 Hz at 60% brightness and below.

Screen bleeding or halos do not occur on an OLED display.

Not quite perfect in the very dark tones, the screen doesn't fully cover the sRGB color space, although 99.7% is also completely sufficient. The same can be said of the AdobeRGB color space, which is covered at almost 96%. Here, the VivoBook Pro 16X is also clearly ahead of the Asus Studiobook 16, which only manages 89% in AdobeRGB, according to our measurements.

With an average DeltaE of less than 2, the color reproduction is almost natural. Even trained eyes are unlikely to be able to notice the difference. This applies without further calibrations, which did not bring about any improvement. In view of the minimal deviations, this is unnecessary anyway.

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
1.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.6 ms rise
↘ 0.8 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.8 ms rise
↘ 0.8 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 3 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 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 120 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 120 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 120 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18722 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The screen's glossy surface in particular means that reflections make legibility much more difficult in a bright environment and almost impossible in sunlight. On the other hand, you can work with the VivoBook Pro outdoors as long as you sit in the shade. But you should sit indoors for image editing.

As expected for an OLED panel, brightness and color reproduction remain stable from all normal viewing angles. Also typical for OLEDs are significant color deviations at a very steep angle of more than 80°.

Performance - Working speed in the VivoBook maxed out

Our very strong overall impression is mainly due to the Intel Core i9-13980HX, one of the currently best mobile processors. The optional Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060, as in our test unit, or the RTX 4070, are primarily intended to accelerate image processing, video editing, rendering and, of course, 3D applications.

The Asus VivoBook Pro 16X impresses with enormous working speeds. It handles complex and graphically demanding applications effortlessly and likes to multitask. 32 GB of RAM, which does not exhaust the maximum possible clock of 5,600 MHz, but 4,800 MHz, complements the system well.

Testing Conditions

The setting options in the VivoBook Pro 16X are limited to three modes. Performance also results in maximum fan noise, while the performance gain is noticeable in extreme situations, but play only a subordinate role in everyday work.

For this reason, Standard mode was used for all tests, in which the power supply to the processor and graphics card is slightly reduced. In addition, Silent is added as a supplement. Here, the focus is on near-silent work, so the maximum possible computing performance always has to be reduced after short loads. Nonetheless, we did not register any serious throttling in Standard mode.

The maximum power consumption of the CPU and GPU as well as the measured fan noise are summarized in the table below.

Energy profile CPU load GPU load Max. fan volume
Standard 157/80 watts 90 watts 37.0 dB(A)
Performance 157/157 watts 115 watts 56.7 dB(A)
Silent 105/55 watts 80 watts 29.2 dB(A)

Processor

Not many notebooks surpass the Asus VivoBook Pro with its Intel Core i9-13980HX in terms of pure computing power. Larger, heavier laptops for gaming such as the Lenovo Legion Pro 7 or the Asus ROG Strix G17 are on par or better thanks to the AMD Ryzen 9 7945HX. With 8 performance cores and a total of 32 threads, a maximum clock rate of 5.6 GHz and an external controller, the i9-13980HX is certainly well equipped.

The Asus ProArt Studiobook 16 is also on the same level as long as Performance mode is set. And this is despite the fact that the VivoBook is "only" allowed to consume 157 W instead of 170 W. Our benchmarks are often 10% better. Due to the significantly increased fan power, the sustained performance values are also slightly better, as can be clearly seen in the Cinebench R15 loop. The values for Standard and Performance are in the diagram.

In Standard mode with moderate fan noise, the measured values are weaker, but still excellent. Similarly positioned multimedia notebooks with smaller CPUs such as the Intel Core i7-13700H are clearly outperformed. This is reflected in the evaluation of various CPU benchmarks, where there is a clear gap to the VivoBook.

In Silent mode, the CPU is throttled relatively quickly because it would otherwise get too hot due to the reduced cooling. When the mains plug is pulled, there is a significant drop in performance. For example, just under 11,000 points is reached in the Cinebench R23 multi-core test. This is just under a third of the score in Standard mode, but is not far off the average of all multimedia laptops we have reviewed in the last 2 years.

More benchmarks and information can be found in our CPU benchmark list.

In contrast to the pure CPU tests, the rating with PCMark 10 is a little weaker. However, if Performance mode is selected here, there is only a small gap to the best models. In CrossMark, the Asus laptop is far ahead, even on standard settings.

Overall, the Vivobook Pro is consistently fast. Demanding applications do not completely exhaust it, so the notebook always remains usable. Installations, parallel program starts and the like do not pose an issue.

DPC Latency

Real-time audio editing does not count among the strengths of the Asus VivoBook Pro 16X. In the current configuration, the kernel mode driver and Nvidia's Studio driver, among others, cause too high latencies. However, this can be quite different with modified drivers and other software.

Only 3 dropped frames were registered during 4K video streaming; a multimedia notebook should not drop any frames at all.

Storage Devices

For a PCIe 4.0 SSD, the values we recorded are consistently weak, although the manufacturer specifies a maximum transfer rate of just over 4000 MB/s, which is barely two-thirds of the theoretical maximum. We also measured below-average values in other read- and write tests.

During intensive read- and write processes that occur when editing raw data, this behavior may have a negative impact on system performance. On the other hand, no negative effects should be seen in all other tasks.

The Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra or the Schenker Vision 16 Pro are clearly in front here. But at least the SSD can be replaced with little effort.
