Although we haven’t been given a specific ASUS ROG Flow X16 release date, the laptop is now available to buy in some regions from certain retailers, though we’ve yet to see widespread listings for it on every retailer.
We were very excited to get our hands on this new, unique, 2-in-1 gaming laptop and you can read what we thought about it in our ASUS ROG Flow X16 review now!
This latest in the ROG Flow series (first revealed at the For Those Who Dare: Boundless ROG launch event on May 17th 2022) takes the display size to a whopping 16-inches, and comes packing with the most powerful GPU seen in a 2-in-1 touch screen laptop of these dimensions: the Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti. Read below for everything we know so far about the MSRP and ASUS ROG Flow X16 release date, as well as a breakdown of the specifications.
ASUS ROG Flow X16 specs
The most powerful in the ASUS ROG Flow series previously was the ASUS ROG Flow Z13 which we reviewed earlier in 2022. This 13.4″ device had a maximum spec option of an Intel Core i9-12900H CPU and a RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPU (with a max TGP of 40W). Although the RTX 3070 Ti laptop graphics card is weaker than some found in other full-sized laptops with the same GPU, at 125W it is still much more powerful than the Flow Z13. The improved three fan system with additional cooling vents and liquid metal cooling for the CPU minimizes the thermal throttling on these components, despite the small chassis.
Combined with the 16″ 165Hz display (with a reported 3ms response time) this looks to be an impressive gaming machine for such a thin device, that would also work as a superb laptop for creatives, given its 100% DCI-P3 gamut coverage and bright Mini LED DisplayHDR touchscreen.
