ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Malaysia today announces local pricing, specifications, and availability for its new 2023 ROG Flow laptop lineup.
The Flow X13 features an all-new 13-inch Nebula Display for the very first time, as well as a redesigned chassis and upgraded internals. The Flow Z13 also boasts a new 13-inch Nebula Display, and new silicon pushes the boundaries of tablet gaming to new heights. The Flow X16 returns with a Mini LED Nebula HDR Display and features a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H processor, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU.
ROG Flow X13 – New Exterior & Internals
The ROG Flow X13 was the first member of the Flow family, and for 2023, it will also be one of the first machines to feature a 13-inch QHD 165 Hz, 16:10 aspect-ratio Nebula Display. It is powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU.
The 2023 ROG Flow X13 is 10 mm smaller than the 2022 model, despite packing upgraded hardware, retaining its 15-inch keyboard layout, and even enlarging the touchpad by 56%. For more power on the go, the battery was increased to 75 Wh. The 2023 Flow X13 also supports up to 130 W charging via its lightweight and portable USB-C adapter.
The exterior was redesigned as well, including a unique new wave pattern design on the aluminum lid. Instead of having a uniform thickness, the waves on the lid now get progressively thicker, while also providing a texture that adds grip for easy carrying.
The glass itself has also been improved and now features the brand-new Corning® Gorilla Glass DXC coating. This coating not only increases surface hardness by 40% to further protect the glass from nicks and scratches during everyday use, but it also reduces glare.
ROG Flow Z13 – All New Nebula Display
The ROG Flow Z13, returns in 2023 with upgraded components and its very own 13-inch Nebula Display. This QHD 165 Hz, 16:10 aspect ratio panel boasts the same incredible pixel density and vivid colors as the Flow X13 thanks to 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and is protected by Gorilla Glass DXC from nicks and scratches to the touchscreen.
The Flow Z13 is powered by up to an Intel Core i9-13900H and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU. A MUX Switch with NVIDIA Advanced Optimus intelligently ensures optimal framerates when plugged in, and better battery life when untethered, with no manual intervention needed.
It also comes with native stylus support and tools like NVIDIA Canvas leverage the power of AI to speed up creative workflow. Access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is bundled with the Z13, giving gamers access to an ever growing catalogue of AAA and indie games.
ROG Flow X16 – 16-Inch Ultra Portable
The ROG Flow X16 now features a Mini LED Nebula HDR Display, featuring 1,024 individual dimming zones and 1100 nits of peak brightness. A 240Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio keeps motion crystal clear and immersive. Like the Flow X13 and Z13, the X16’s display has also been upgraded with a Gorilla Glass DXC coating, keeping the touchscreen safer from scratches during everyday use.
It is also equipped with an Intel Core i9-13900H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Laptop GPU. With Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.1 ports, the Flow X16 is compatible with all of the latest monitors and peripherals.
