Do you want to play games in the 4K result? If not games, then I guess you want to do photo editing or any other stuff on a high-quality display screen.
Indeed you came here because you want to see the specs of the ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro 15.6-inch laptop. And we are reviewing this laptop, and we will do it in great detail. We had also reviewed the ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 laptop in brief detail. Make sure to check that laptop too, because that is also an outstanding laptop for gaming and other works.
Now, we will review the ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro 15.6-inch laptop in brief detail, so be ready for that and grab your pen and paper too.
We are mentioning its display screen first because it has an astonishing display. Its size is 15.6-inch, and it is equipped with a NanoEdge bezel that allows you to view everything comfortably and in Ultra-HD result. The bezel of this laptop maximizes the comfort of viewing everything, and you don’t face any annoying reflections because of that bezel.
You get 3840×2160 pixels of resolution on this laptop. You can also connect an LED externally to maximize the pixels you want. Connecting any LED with this laptop using the Thunderbolt 3 port will show a magnificent 4K display screen that would be eye-catchy for new users. You will be able to see a stunning display when you connect any LED that supports a 4K display.
Make sure to use the Thunderbolt 3 port to connect any display material externally. There are two Thunderbolt 3 ports that you can use.
After getting a fantastic display screen, you also get an outstanding processor of 8th generation technology. ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro comes with an Intel Core i7-8750HK processor whose performance is marvelous. The Core i7-8750HK processor boosts your laptop’s speed, and no matter how many heavy programs you open, you can open them in less than no time because of this fastest processor.
When we count its processing speed in Gigahertz, it is 2.2 GHz with an 8M cache. The 8M cache helps in delivering the processing speed of 6 processors at once. If we multiply 2.2×6, it becomes 13.2 GHz. So overall processing speed you get is 13.2 GHz when we combine it with the 8M cache memory. I think that’s enough for every user, either he is a gamer, traveler, businessman, journalist, or novel writer.
So that’s all for its processor’s performance, and now I will review another incredible thing that helps boost your laptop’s performance.
Video Memory, we often call it graphics memory or VGA card, plays a vital role in speeding your computer’s performance. The higher the graphics card, the faster you can play games or run heavy programs. Without a graphics card, you cannot run heavy games or programs.
But this variant of ASUS will not disappoint you because it has a ponderous graphics card. ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro is equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti, and if you have read the reviews of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti, then you must know how fantastic that graphic card is. You get a 4 GB graphics card with this machine, and that’s enough to run games that require higher specifications.
While connecting an LED externally whose result is HD and using this graphics card to play the game in ultra-high graphics will be a fantastic scene; every gamer will love that.
This NVIDIA graphics card has enough power to perform several tasks without slowing your laptop, so that is the best thing for you.
Storage Space (Hard Disk)
ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro comes with a 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD hard drive in which the latest version of Windows 10 is installed. You may or may not be familiar with SSD hard drive, but SSD is the newest technology, and very few people know this thing. Whenever any laptop is equipped with SSD hard disk, it becomes faster than expected.
The SSD hard disk is best for gamers because it runs faster than a regular Hard Disk Drive. When you have pressed the start button, your desktop screen gets loaded in less than 3-4 seconds. All the programs that take time to load get loaded in just 3-4 seconds. So you get a 512 GB SSD hard drive, and that’s enough for gamers and business people.
You can insert another regular hard drive in it, but make sure your Windows is installed in the SSD disk. If you have installed Windows on any other hard drive, it will load slower than the SSD, so make sure to install the Windows in your SSD to enjoy the fastest speed ever.
RAM (Random Access Memory)
Without RAM, your laptop will not start, and RAM is where all your inputs are copied. If your RAM is high, multitasking is not a problem for you.
So the ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro has the RAM of new technology. The laptop I mentioned earlier had DDR3 RAM, but ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro has 16 GB LPDDR4 RAM, and DDR4 is the latest technology. DDR4 is five times faster than the DDR3, so you get speedier RAM with this laptop.
When all these four powers combine, your laptop becomes an unstoppable monster. He doesn’t fear any heavy thing that comes in front of him.
I talked about the four powers: Processor, Graphics Card, SSD Hard Disk, and this DDR4 RAM of 16 GB. This DDR4 RAM is faster than DDR3 because the DDR4 RAM’s bus speed is 2133 MHz, whereas the DDR3 RAM has a bus speed of 1200, and in some RAMS, it is 1600. That is why the DDR4 RAM is faster than DDR3.
The keyboard of this laptop is soft and smooth. The distance between every button is 1.5mm that is why it has no numeric keys. Numeric keys are useful in some cases, but you don’t get the Numeric keys with this laptop. If you want to use numeric keys, you must connect a keyboard externally and perform numbering tasks.
Coming to its backlit, so this Zenbook Pro variant comes with a silver backlit. The silver flare on its keyboard shows an eye-catchy interface in the dark environment. Whenever working in a room while turning the light off, you will see a fantastic overview of its keyboard.
The keys distance of 1.5mm between every button makes it more comfortable for data entry operators and journalists. These soft buttons are best for writers, and most gamers connect a keyboard externally, but these keys also work best while gaming.
Battery timing is the most important and noticeable thing on every laptop, either gaming or writing. If your laptop cannot survive for more than 5 hours while performing some heavy tasks, you cannot say your battery is good when you spend a lot of money.
So the battery of ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro is of 71Whr Lithium-Polymer whose working is fantastic compared to others. It carries 19.5 volts of voltage and eight lithium-ion batteries.
I said its battery is fantastic, and here’s how.
It has a thermal engineered battery that provides 9.5 or 10 hours of backup. The thermal engineered battery lets you charge your laptop in less than no time.
ASUS gives a timing of 60% in just 49 minutes, and I think that is good. They tested this battery on Mobile Mark 2014 Productivity mode and then confirmed that its charging reaches 60% in just 49 minutes.
9.5 hours of backup is well-enough to perform any task. If you are an office employee, then 9 hours are enough because every office employee works for 8 hours, which is the best time ever.
As the laptop is the latest, the WiFi connectivity option is also the latest. You get 802.11 AC WiFi, and this is the newest technology of WiFis.
The latest technology of ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro catches signals from far. It has good wireless connectivity that allows you to connect with numerous devices.
When your WiFi is connected with any network, your internet speed is faster than others because its signal catching feature is fantastic. And you know the more internet speed you have, the faster you can finish your work.
Coming to its display ports, you can quickly get access to three monitors simultaneously. You have one HDMI port and 2 Thunderbolt 3 USB C-type ports for different displays.
The Thunderbolt 3 ports support 4K results. If you have any LED whose display is in 4K can be easily connected to it. Connecting any LED with this laptop is no longer a problem when you have that ASUS UX550GE-XB71T laptop in your hands. You can play every game on any LED, and you will get a 4K display of that game.
No doubt, the HDMI ports have a good result, but a simple HDMI port can never compete 4K pixels.
It has 4 USB 3.0 ports that let you connect external devices with ease. The 3.0 USB ports have an excellent catching speed, and the transfer rate is also high. Whenever you want to transfer any file from one place to another, the 3.0 USB ports help you complete this task in less than no time.
Suppose you want to transfer any file in any USB device and that USB is not in C-type format, so what will you do? You must insert that USB into the USB 3.0 port. In this way, you will get an excellent transferring speed.
But if you have any external hard that supports C-type cables, you must use the Thunderbolt 3 port because Thunderbolt 3 is the latest technology, and your data can be transferred while blinking your eye.
ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1, and sometimes you have to connect with Bluetooth to transfer files from smartphones.
So, you are given an excellent Bluetooth connection. You can use this Bluetooth 4.1 to transfer files or connect with speakers whose pairing can be done with Bluetooth.
Additional ports with it are Audio Jack, DC-Jack, and MicroSD Card Slot. Sometimes you have to insert the memory card for work, so you get a MicroSD Card Slot.
It has a fantastic audio jack, and I know most gamers use headphones. To connect any headphones, you can use Audio Jack, but most gamers prefer headphones with Bluetooth. As I mentioned, you get a Bluetooth 4.1, so don’t worry about its Bluetooth connection.
It has a simple DVD ROM, and according to my experience, USB devices and external hard drives have replaced the DVD and CD ROMS. But sometimes you have to insert any CD. If you have installed a new Window, you must have a DVD ROM to insert the graphics card CD. For that, this DVD ROM will help.
At last, I would say its DVD ROM is simple as other laptops have.
Its mouse is as simple as its keyboard is, but the working of its mouse is good. ASUS UX550GE-XB71T Zenbook Pro is available in black color, and the mouse pad of this laptop is black. So it is easy to control, and the left and right-click buttons are soft.
