The multinational computer company counts on the hand of TheKeems to put the benefits of this incredible laptop to the limit.
It’s hard not to fall for easy praise when we talk about an ASUS laptop (I actually use an ASUS ZenBook 14 at home), but when you put your hands on any product from this company, you are aware of the great quality that comes off with prices totally reasonable. This last month we have been testers of his Zephyrus M16, one of ASUS ROG’s high-end laptops, and we have received enormous satisfaction both for its external appearance and for its performance in all aspects.
The ROG ( Republic of Gamers ) range from ASUS is designed for the company’s most demanding users, from streamers when they work outside the home to video game professionals, including graphic designers, computer scientists or even music producers.
The Zephyrus M16 mounts a 16-inch screen, although having it in your hands gives the feeling of being even smaller, especially considering that it does not weigh even 2kg. It is also made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy in a matte black color, to which is added a design based on perforations with colors and elegant brightness as well as discreet.
Another detail to take into account is that the screen is capable of opening 180 degrees, which can sometimes be very useful and is not something that we see very from time to time in laptops of this style.
At the hardware level, this ASUS ROG mounts an 8-core Intel Core i9 processor and 16GB of RAM ,which if we combine them with its Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card we have a real bug with very high performance. As for connections and extras, it does not fall short with an HDMI 2.0, USB outputs both type A and type C, micro SD slot, HD Webcam and a 10- hour charge of autonomy, which is capable of recharging in an hour and little.
Undoubtedly, the operation of this ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 is something that we have enjoyed in the writing, since its high performance adapts perfectly to the tasks that we carry out both at the level of graphic design and in the field of music. We have seen for ourselves how easy it is to make one of our Mp3Keems Selection very quickly from Photoshop.
But that didn’t seem like enough to us, so we went to the next level. Following the image line, we set up our last interview with Premiereusing this laptop. At no time did we have lag problems, or when viewing transitions, which is what usually gives the most problems, and you can see the result right here.
In terms of sound, it occurred to us to test the Zephyrus M16 under the pressure of a project completed in Ableton . Even using the externally necessary plugins (to avoid us installing one by one), the laptop has been fluid at all times, without reaching 50% of its performance, which is a real animated. Both xref Serum as packs bundle of iZotope and FabFilter have not been rivals for this ASUS, which are the plugins that could cause more problems.
To finish, we took a break by playing a little music, looking for the quick reaction of the touchpad and hoping that the tracks would load quickly, simulating the work that involves working at maximum performance in a nightclub or a venue. And so it has been. Rekordbox has not been able to slow down the Zephyrus M16 either, giving us the pleasure of operating with great peace of mind even without using an external controller. Imagine if we had used it!
We definitely have no complaints about the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16. For approximately € 2500, the Taiwan company has put in our hands an incredible machine made for any professional (or amateur) who is dedicated to image or sound, in addition to being able to enjoy the most powerful games on the market.
To finish, here we leave you our experience with this incredible laptop so that you can see with your own eyes what it is capable of.
