While the tech world is seething with the amazing performance and extremely expensive GeForce RTX 3090s, there are still plenty of laptop models released before the new school year. ASUS X571GT is shaped for the multi-purpose laptop segment, serving both work and entertainment needs. With a 15.6-inch screen size and full-size keyboard, relatively strong configuration but weighing only 2kg without a charger, the X571GT is still light enough for users to carry in a backpack to school or work. easy.
In terms of overall design, due to not completely being shaped as a gaming laptop, the X571GT’s appearance is not too pitiful. If you just look at it, it is difficult to know that this is a fairly configurable laptop and discrete graphics card. The edges of this laptop are square, angular, almost the common denominator of ASUS laptops with large screen sizes. The navy blue color of the machine also helps the machine look “modest”.
There is nothing on the top of the device with just the ASUS logo. Meanwhile, the underside of the machine is a series of heat sinks to ensure cooling of discrete graphics cards like NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q. There are still beveled cutouts on the sides to increase the heat dissipation space, but these details are not pitiful enough to affect the overall quite simply. Only when turning to the back, the heat exhaust slots are a little dotted.
Thanks to its large size, the X571GT is quite equipped with connection ports. The left side respectively charging port, ethernet port, HDMI, USB 3.0, USB 3.1 Type-C and headphone / mic combo jack. The right side of the device is equipped with an SD card slot, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a Kensington lock hole.
The screen hinge of the device is an interesting detail, like many expensive ASUS gaming laptops. About 2 years ago, the company has tended to design the screen hinge capable of lifting the machine to an angle of about 11 degrees, creating a comfortable typing feeling for the user and enhancing the air convection. hot and cold air of the machine.
The thin bezel screen is also an outstanding detail of the X571GT. This is a rare laptop in the under 20 million dong segment equipped with a 1080p screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is very suitable for playing FPS games like CS: GO, Call of Duty Warzone or Valorant. The anti-glare coating of the X571GT is also quite okay when users can still see the content on the screen even under bright sunlight. The unfortunate minus point of this screen is that the color coverage is only 45% NTSC, only about 72% sRGB. So the X571GT’s color rendering is quite limited.
The keyboard on the X571GT is a standard ASUS chiclet with just enough key spacing and bounce, but nothing impressive. Thanks to the 15.6 inch size, this laptop is equipped with a full-size keyboard to better serve input. The trackpad also gave moderate response. The plus point for this laptop is a fingerprint sensor, which makes logging in with a computer much more convenient. The X571GT’s webcam only has 720p resolution with average picture quality.
Although the peripheral part of the X571GT is not really convincing, the heart of this laptop is quite good compared to the price with the configuration:
CPU: Intel Core i5-9300H
RAM: SK Hynix DDR4 8GB 2666MHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q 4GB
iGPU: Intel UHD Graphics 630
SSD: Intel NVMe 512GB
Battery: 3-Cell 42Wh
With the mid-range configuration, the performance of the X571GT is acceptable. The single-core performance of the i5-9300H even approaches the i7-7700K on desktop. The popular tests like Cinebench R20, CPU-Z, Geekbench, Superposition, … all gave quite average results. With a price of less than 20 million dong, it will be difficult to ask for more in this laptop.
The gaming performance of the X571GT is also quite good thanks to the GTX 1650 Max-Q discrete graphics card, which is a desktop GPU but optimized for performance and temperature, so it has higher performance. GTX 1650 mobile version is about 25%.
In most games tested, the X571GT can still achieve a minimum of 60 FPS with the High setting. However, to be able to take advantage of the monitor’s 120Hz refresh rate, users will have to accept gaming at a setting from Medium to Low at 1080p to be able to achieve FPS levels above 120.
During use, at 25 degrees Celsius of air-conditioned room temperature, the CPU temperature can reach a fairly high level, up to nearly 100 degrees Celsius when running tests using AVX scripts. For normal tasks, the CPU is usually about 70 – 80 degrees C hotter.
Meanwhile, the GPU is only hottest at 80 degrees Celsius. If you intend to own this laptop, you should use it on a flat table, avoid laying on pillows or blocking the heat sinks on the side. below and two sides of the machine to ensure the best heat dissipation. Thankfully, thanks to ASUS IceCool technology, the palm rest and keyboard of the device are well cooled, reaching only about 35 degrees Celsius when the machine is running at full capacity, making the experience when playing games or doing heavy tasks. the machine becomes more comfortable.
The charger included with the machine has a capacity of up to 150W, ensuring enough power for 2 most power consuming components, the CPU and GPU. This will be your indomitable object when owning the X571GT because the 42Wh battery of this machine will only bring an average battery life of about 2-3 hours with moderate usage. Unfortunately, the weight of around 600g will create a hindrance to bringing the X571GT to places where there is no electrical outlet.
Overall, the ASUS X571GT is a versatile laptop, but it doesn’t really excel in any area. The overall experience of this machine is about 7.5 / 10 points. With a price of nearly 20 million dong, this will be a suitable laptop to equip new students with moderate budget.
