ASUS has shared a teaser for the ROG Flow Z13, the world’s most powerful gaming tablet. Some are calling it a Surface killer; it resembles the Microsoft tablet but supports external GPUs. It is believed to feature a AMD Ryzen 6000 series Rembrandt processor with Zen 3+ and RDNA 2 architecture.

ASUS has another Flow product called the ROG Flow X13, a thin, foldable laptop with AMD Ryzen 9 5800HS and PCIe Gen 3 x8 connector for an external GPU. Up to a 280-watt NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 can be used. The X13 is available in two models with up to 32 GB LPDDR4 memory and a 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD.

  1. Zen 3+ with RDNA2, great. External GPU connection? Maybe. There no mention of Thunderbolt, so how does it plug in?

    Yeah TB would be the obvious method (and I’m actually surprised a lot of other laptops/SFF stuff doesn’t use this). Just looking you’d not be able to tell, as it’s USB-C interface, but you would think they would be talking about it in the literature.

    Unless they are doing their own proprietary thing. Which would be beyond stupid, but I already think this product is fairly stupid, so idk….

  3. Well based on the pictures it appears to be a proprietary connector on the proprietary housing for the GPU. Which probably isn’t ALL that bad, assuming the housing uses standardized PCI-e 16x slot w/ standardized GPU power connectors so you can swap in whatever GPU you want (that will physically fit)

    If that’s the case, then that’d could be a pretty powerful setup that ultra portable.

    It does have TB but the GPU plugs in through a proprietary port. It’s in the pictures.

  5. I love the sense of humor from whoever approved the promo image. Screw can it play Crysis. Can it play Space Invaders?
