ASUS ROG Flow Z13, a high-performance gaming tablet

ASUS ROG Flow Z13 will be the Most powerful gaming tablet on the planet, as promised from the high performance brand of the Taiwanese manufacturer.

ASUS has a comprehensive line of gaming desktops, laptops and smartphones listed under the ASUS brand Republic of Gamers (ROG). What’s next? A tablet that will be presented on January 4 in the framework of CES 2022.

The ASUS ROG Flow Z13 should follow the path started by the X13 convertible unveiled last year in Las Vegas. From what we see in the images, it is a tablet with detachable keyboard, magnetic connection and with an overall design reminiscent of Microsoft’s Surface Pro. (It could also be a convertible, it is not clear). We see a USB Type-C port, a USB Type-A port, a headphone jack, what appears to be a microSD card reader, and another housing that could be for SIM cards.

Your screen will repeat size in the 13 inch, we assume with good resolution (minimum FHD) and high refresh rate (minimum 120 Hz). Its internal specifications are not known and if the manufacturer will bet on the Ryzen Mobile. Its graphics capacity will improve from the GTX 1650 to an RTX 3050 Ti and will come with plenty of memory (16 Gbytes LPDDR5) and storage, with PCIe solid state drives of up to 1 Tbyte.

Another of the hallmarks of this tablet will be its connector for the external graphics that it can equip and that will raise its performance to that of the best gaming laptops. It’s about the ROG XG Mobile, which last year mounted an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 from 150 W with ROG Boost.

It connects via a custom PCIe 3.0 x8 interface, which ASUS says offers more speed and more compatibility to use than existing Thunderbolt 4. In addition, this external graphics also functions as a hub, with USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, full-size SD card slot, plus DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0a that connect directly to the external GPU.

On day 4 we will officially know what this ASUS ROG Flow Z13 will offer. It looks great, although with the external graphic included it will not be suitable for low budgets. We already tell you.
