As ever, it’s the performance that makes or breaks a high-end offering like this, and on the whole, the ROG Flow X13 with XG Mobile makes for a potent combo for handling today’s games. While it isn’t a clean sweep across all our benchmarks, it’s generally jostling for position with the other 3080 machines we’ve looked at lately.
The competition here is the chunky but powerful Asus ROG Strix Scar 17, and the new MSI GS66 Stealth, which can get loud in use, but is an otherwise decent classic gaming laptop. There isn’t a lot between them in terms of pricing either, which essentially means your choice is going to come down to whichever form factor works best for you.
You’re looking at 115fps in the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, 144fps in Hitman 3, and 80fps in Metro Exodus. These are all good scores for demanding titles and each one also happens to look impressive too.
Essentially the take away here is that this combo of eGPU and versatile 2-in-1 laptop/tablet works well, and Asus’s connection doesn’t hold performance back. At least not on average, some of the minimum framerates are lower than the other machines, and this could well be to do with the external nature of the graphics card.
