The ROG Flow X16 builds upon years of Intelligent Cooling experience to relentlessly push the boundaries of what an ultraportable laptop is capable of. Our Frost Force Technology and unique Pulsar Heatsink elevate the X16 from just a thin and light to a true gaming machine. Thermal Grizzly liquid metal thermal compound, a unique Tri-fan thermal module, and the ability to stay completely silent with 0dB Ambient Cooling Technology keep the Flow X16 on the cutting edge of cool.
ROG Flow X16 cooling process
Frost Force Technology
At the heart of every great laptop is a great cooling solution. Our new Frost Force Technology directs air though precisely calculated cutouts in the chassis, sending airflow directly towards internal components to keep them cool in all conditions. A third auxiliary fan also helps to send additional heat from the GPU directly to the heatsinks, keeping the machine cool during long video renders or gaming sessions.
The X16 features 330 heatsink fins, with each stack lined with ultra-thin copper fins as slim as 0.1mm. This allows for higher density and lower air resistance, with a total of 110,902mm² of surface area. This all-copper construction continues to the Pulsar Heatsink, which is double the size of a normal heatsink and covers the entire rear of the machine.
First introduced on the Zephyrus G14, the ROG Flow X16 features a dust filter on its intake vents. Dust and fibers can collect inside the machine, trapping heat and causing degraded performance over time. A filter helps keep dust out, allowing the CPU and GPU to breathe easier for years of smooth and stable operation.*Internal testing in a simulated dusty environment
Arc Flow Fans™
Our Arc Flow Fans™ feature 84 curved blades specially shaped to maximize airflow with minimal noise. Variable thickness blades, which taper down to just 0.2mm at the tip, reduce turbulence as the fan accelerates air with centrifugal force, giving you a quieter overall experience.*Airflow improvements compared to the 71-blade ROG fan design, as tested internally by ASUS.
Variable Blade Thickness Design
Our fans use blades of variable thickness and shape, gradually changing from a high to low pressure area before expelling air. This reduces turbulence and maximizes airflow efficiency compared to traditional fan blades. This patented new design is made possible by the latest liquid-crystal-polymer processing technologies that allow us to create ultra-thin, strong fan blades for increased air intake.
Liquid metal compound from Thermal Grizzly reduces CPU temperatures by up to 10°C compared to standard thermal paste. Applying it onto CPUs is delicate work, so ROG commissioned custom equipment to automate the process with mechanical precision, and designed a patented internal fence to contain the compound.
5 Comprehensive Heatpipes
5 heatpipes pull heat away from not only the CPU, GPU and VRAM, but also the VRM circuitry supplying them with power. Reducing the temperature of these components helps improve long-term stability and reliability.
0dB Ambient Cooling
Enjoy truly silent cooling under light workloads with 0dB Ambient Cooling Technology. In the Silent operating mode, the cooling system switches off all fans during everyday tasks to dissipate heat passively. This lets you concentrate on your work and immerse yourself in movies with less distraction. If CPU or GPU temperatures increase, the fans automatically switch on again.
NEBULA HDR DISPLAY
Mini LED allows for deeper contrast and higher brightness than traditional LED displays, allowing for an image that pops off the screen. Prepare to be dazzled by vivid colors with 100% DCI-P3 coverage, with 1100 nits of peak brightness and 512 local dimming zones on this stunning VESA DisplayHDR™ 1000 panel.
Cinema-standard Color Gamut
Nebula HDR Engine
Our Nebula HDR Display™ is powered by AMLED technology from AUO and ROG’s own in-house backlight algorithm.
This adaptive control technology utilizes image processing as well as dynamic dimming and boosting to create hyper-accurate local dimming, which reduces the blooming effect seen on some HDR panels. With the increased density of Mini LED, your content will look more vibrant than ever.
Dolby Vision® Technology
Scene to scene, frame to frame, Dolby Vision® makes media look better. This technology improves on standard high dynamic range (HDR) 4K video, dynamically adjusting visuals to make every image in front of you richer, brighter, and livelier. Creators can film and edit their streams, videos, and other content in a format commonly used by industry professionals.
Pantone® Color Validation
Each IPS-level display is factory-calibrated to ensure that colors are accurate to the Pantone® palette. Artists, designers, and content creators can add high-quality content to their portfolios and enjoy richer gaming visuals all on the same machine.
100% DCI-P3 Color Coverage
While the sRGB color space is the standard for most digital visuals, it only represents about 75% of the DCI-P3 spectrum used for professional filmmaking. Displays with complete DCI-P3 coverage offer a wide color gamut and rich color, and let you see films and other media exactly the way they were meant to be experienced.
Nothing breaks in-game immersion like stuttering and tearing. GPUs render frames at variable rates, but displays usually refresh at a constant clip, so they can get out of sync, causing visible hitching and artifacts that pull you out of the action. With Adaptive Sync, the refresh rate of the display synchronizes with the GPU’s frame rate to eliminate visual tearing, minimize stuttering, and reduce input lag. Get ready to experience gameplay that looks and feels more natural than ever.
Supports HDR technology across a range of luminance (up to 1000cd/m2) to deliver a wider color range and higher contrast than traditional monitors. The brightest whites and the darkest blacks bring out details like never before. This monitor delivers contrast performance that passes DisplayHDR™ 1000 certification. To ensure color accuracy, each ROG monitor is factory pre-calibrated.
Gorilla Glass 3
The 16” touchscreen display features Corning® Gorilla® Glass. Play, use, and touch the display with confidence, knowing you have industry-leading protections from scratches and daily wear and tear, all without compromising image quality or color accuracy.
The Flow X16 was designed with versatility in mind. For a standard PC gaming experience, connect your favorite mouse to pair with the keyboard. . With N-key rollover, a 1.7mm travel distance and single-zone RGB with Aura Sync support, the keyboard has the same premium feature set as our other ROG laptops. When used in tablet mode, the 16” touchscreen display allows for effortless enjoyment of your favorite mobile and touch compatible games. For supported games, the X16 also connects seamlessly with wireless controllers for a whole new take on ultra-portable gaming. Pair up to four controllers and put the X16 in tent mode to take the best couch co-op games with you wherever you go. No matter how you play, the Flow X16 can adapt to your style.
