The ROG Flow X13 Headlines ASUS’ 2021 Gaming Laptop Line

by Duey Guison  January 13, 2021

ASUS updates its line of gaming laptops with the latest hardware and new innovation. Headlining the lineup is the Flow X13, which is an ultraslim 13-inch gaming laptop that rocks up to a 8-core Ryzen 9 CPU and a GTX1650 GPU–all while having a slender 15.8mm thin profile and 1.3kg weight. Even more unique is that the Flow X13 is a 2-in-1  with its 360-degree hinge, letting you do things from gaming to viewing, drawing, to presenting. As an ultraslim notebook, the Flow X13 uses a 100w USB-C charger.

To boost the Flow X13’s potential, the XG Mobile dock can be configured with an RTX GPU and connects via a custom interface that offers a higher bandwidth compared to Thunderbolt 4. The dock provides additional ports and has a 280w adapter that can power both the Flow X13 and XG Mobile dock.

For the ROG Zephyrus line, the Duo 15 gets an SE (short for second edition) version that utilizes a Ryzen 9 CPU and RTX graphics. Other improvements include a better AAS Plus cooling system, 4K 120hz or Full HD 300hz 15.6-inch display, and RAID storage. Like its predecessor, you still get a 14.1-inch ScreenPad Plus for improved productivity and gaming.

For the Strix line, both the Scar 15 and Scar 17 can now be configured with displays that boast up to a 300hz refresh rate and 3ms response time–with RTX GPUs and next-generation Ryzen CPUs powering it. Both models also feature a new optical mechanical keyboard for better response and durability. For the design, both models get a dot matrix design on the aluminum lid, soft-touch texture for the palm rest, and customizable Armor Caps to further personalize your laptop.

Those looking for a more afforable option can go for the G15 and G17. Like the Scar series, the G series can be configured with a 300hz 3ms display (or a WQHD panel with a 165hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and better color gamut), next-generation Ryzen processors, and RTX GPUs.

For the TUF line, ASUS introduces the Dash F15, which aims to offer value-for-money on a slim gaming notebook. Powering it is Intel’s Tiger Lake processors that is paired with RTX GPUs. New additions include Thunderbolt 4, Two-way AI noise cancellation, up to 144hz display options, and USB-C charging.

All laptops will be available soon.
