The ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV-XB74T features PANTONE validated color accuracy, 100% DCI-P3 (133% sRGB) color gamut. We dialed back to -100 mV in order to prevent any stability issues. Instead, OLED panels are current driven, and as far as I understand, they only flicker for certain types of darker greys. Surprisingly, it grew on me the more I used it. I've been covering mobile computers since the 2000s and you'll mostly find reviews and thorough guides written by me here on the site. Overall, these results are in-line with our previous findings. This sentiment is hard to describe in words, but I constantly found myself having to pull over the laptop in order to read what’s on the ScreenPad. March 5, 2020 at 1:37 pm. Power draw – since each pixel is controlled individually, OLEDs tend to require a lot of power when displaying bright colorful/white content, with a major impact on battery life. However, OLED eye strain is something people have reported on OLED phones, so you might also experience it with OLED laptops, especially since you’re going to stare at this screen for much longer. Finally, on battery the CPU and GPU drop in performance, so don’t expect to play demanding games while unplugged. The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is a lot thicker and heavier than other ZenBooks as well, and it’s a hell of a lot more expensive. Your email address will not be published. You don’t get performance profiles on this ZenBook, so we’re using the stock settings for this test, with the fans on Turbo. Furthermore, the high GPU temperatures limit overclocking, that’s why many of the other RTX 2060 80W models that allow overclocking are able to score 10-15% better in GPU chores and up to 20% better in games. Asus ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581GV) Microsoft Windows 10 Pro (64-bit); 2.7Hz Intel Core i7-8559U; 16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,666MHz; 6GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060; 1TB SSD However, with normal use, you’ll constantly look at it from a down angle, and that takes a toll on the image quality. However, they depress a little too easily and actuate quickly, which makes them rather unforgiving to straying fingers. That can be annoying. First, we test the CPU’s performance in demanding loads by running Cinebench R15 for 10+ times in a loop, with 2-3 sec delay between each run, which simulates a 100% load on all the cores. Camera: IR webcam with Windows Hello support I also noticed some slight color gamut variation in the corners, which is something else to keep in mind for your color accurate work.

Nonetheless, the same Cinebench loop test returns scores of around 1550 points in Notebookcheck’s review, which is a significant improvement from our Core i7 unit. On top of these, given the nature of this product, we also ran a couple of benchmarks that simulate workstation-grade tasks, and gathered the results below: For the creators among you, since the RTX 2060 is the equivalent of a Quadro RTX 3000 in terms of performance, you can compare the results above with those on the i7/RTX 3000 Quadro notebook reviewed here. That angle is actually normal for this laptop, as you’ll have to place it farther away from you in order to get your hands ontop of the down-shifted keyboard. Yes even on my device when I rest my hand the cursor disappears and stops writing, my problem is seen in these videos that I made, I ask you if you can take a quick look (I need it to understand if all Asus have the same problem ): 1), 2) This sort of design is fine as long as you keep the laptop on a desk. With all these out of the way, we also need to address another elephant in the room: the OLED display. Activating the Screenpad at 50% brightness takes a further toll on these numbers: However, due to its positioning, you’ll most likely have to keep the ScreenPad at an even higher brightness level in order to make the content easily legible from that sharp angle.
