The ASUS ROG Flow Z13 comes in three variations ROG Flow Z13 (2022)GZ301ZE, ROG Flow Z13 (2022) GZ301ZC and ROG Flow Z13 (2022) GZ301ZA.
Since gaming performance is of upmost importance in a laptop or tablet. Enter MUX switch, “for competitive games, you can switch to a direct GPU mode that reduces latency and boosts performance by an average of 9%.” ROG has added a discrete GPU to the Flow Z13 and supports up to a GeForce RTX™ 3050 Ti.
The ASUS ROG Flow Z13 also cranks up the visual experience with NVIDIA DLSS, which gives games a speed boost with uncompromised image quality. The Flow Z13 employs Ray Tracing which simulates light behavior to produce the most realistic and immersive graphics for gamers and creators. AI powered NVIDIA Max-Q optimize laptops to deliver high performance in thin form factors.
Other potent ASUS ROG Flow Z13 stats include high-end 16GB capacity, ultra fast 5200MHz LPDDR5 memory built for multitasking. Storage capacity is significant with 1TB M.2 SSD capacity, which means more space for games or other creative apps. The Flow Z13 is compatible with the XG Mobile family of external GPUs.
Gaming laptops and tablets CPUs and GPUs can generate considerable heat and cooling them off can be a challenge. The Flow has been engineered to reduce heat buildup:
“Over a year of testing with various processors, ROG engineers observed reductions in temperatures up to 10 degrees Celsius with liquid metal, depending on the CPU. Lower temperatures help processors sustain higher clock speeds for longer and prevent fans from ramping up and making noise.”
Vapor chamber cooling, Whisper-quiet, fans, 0dB Ambient Cooling and Scenario Profiles that give you the right cooling at the right time are other cooling mechanisms of the ASUS ROG Flow Z13.
