Asus ZenBook S13 OLED UM5302TA-LV480W performance, battery life
The Asus ZenBook S13 OLED UM5302TA-LV480W may be of interest to those who are looking for a compact, lightweight laptop that is easy to carry around for everyday multipurpose multimedia-oriented mobile use.
As it is compact, thin and weighs only 1.1 Kg, this mobile computer is easy to carry. As for autonomy, it lasts about 8 hours on battery in light use, which is appreciable for an OLED model and will satisfy many potential users.
Logically, given its positioning, it integrates low-power components.
This is the case of its SSD storage with a large capacity of 1TB, which can accommodate multiple files and software.
Because an SSD consumes less energy than a hard disk. It also offers other advantages such as greater resistance to shocks, silent operation and greater speed.
As a result, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in everyday life than a simple hard disk.
In practice, this means faster start/stop, processing and launching of applications, or faster arrival on the maps of online games.
Of course, no dedicated graphics card is on board and gamers will pass by… unless they are ready to reduce the screen definition because 2.8K requires more graphic calculations than Full HD, which implies a lower fps number.
So thanks to the Radeon 680M graphics solution housed in the processor, we can watch photos and videos but also indulge in modest games, which is appreciable for a 13-inch model.
The Radeon 680M takes place in the low-power AMD Octo Core Ryzen 7 6800U Rembrandt processor. It is coupled here with 16GB of RAM to provide good overall performance to satisfy many users.
To carry out multimedia processing using the multicore and RAM, this core may be suitable, for example for video encoding or photo editing.
On the other hand, it is better to turn to a PC with an appropriate dedicated graphics card and/or a non-low-power processor if you intend to carry out frequent work that requires a lot of graphics and/or processor resources.
