Adding To The Art Asus Proart Genesis 16 In-depth Review


[Bestbuy618 notebook channel]Business people have their own notebook category, thin, light, and reliable are the characteristics of commercial notebooks; game enthusiasts have their own notebook category, powerful hardware configuration, abundant performance release can bring excellent gaming performance; and creative designers’ notebook requirements are often more special, their needs for equipment may not only be in the traditional sense of the They may need more than ASUS has introduced a number of innovative products to the notebook market over the years, and at the new launch on September 15, ASUS made a stunning appearance with their “ASUS Good Screen” and ProArt Creative Arts Series notebooks. ASUS aims to plan subcategories so that more professional users can freely wield inspiration in exclusive areas. Today we have an in-depth look at ASUS’s new ProArt Genesis 16 notebook.

We’ll look at how this great screen from ASUS can help users with their work and how it contributes to their artistic creations. Unlike traditional gaming notebooks with spirited, flashy designs, notebooks given to the designer crowd must naturally have an artistic temperament.

ASUS used a restrained design language rather than jumpy lines to make the entire notebook appear low-key and deep. Metal materials on the A, C, and D sides of the notebook to provide texture, flat lines at the soft transition’s edges, square but not harsh, the A side of the glossy ProArt wording and the bottom of the Studiobook show the notebook’s identity as a creative art country.

The ASUS ProArttron 16 is not a thin and light notebook per se, but it has adopted a thin and light notebook design that reduces body weight as much as possible while maintaining performance, and can adapt to the needs of a multi-scene office to some extent. The full-size keyboard retains the characteristics of this batch of ASUS notebooks, with 1.4mm key range and strong rebound. Users can work comfortably in the dark thanks to three levels of backlighting and a light-transmitting large letter design. The keyboard has a small keyboard, and the full-blooded directional keys have a concave and convex diagonal treatment, making it easier for users to operate blindly.

The B-side camera that supports WindowsHello login also has a physical anti-voyeur design, which can effectively prevent privacy leaks caused by illegal calls to the camera. The ASUS ProArttron 16 is designed with shortcut keys, and function keys F9 and F10 can turn on/off the microphone and camera, respectively, for added peace of mind. The laptop screen is from AUO, and the 16:10 ratio is more productive than the standard 16:9 ratio.

The screen has a 2.5K resolution, 10-bit color depth, and a silky smooth refresh rate of 120Hz; it is factory color-calibrated for exceptional color gamut and color accuracy, and the Spyder X Elite software tests the screen to cover 99 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 89 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. The maximum E is only 2.69, and the average E is as low as 0.56 – a wide color gamut, accurate color accuracy, and smooth color transitions, which are critical for designers’ work. The screen also supports various certifications, such as calman color certification, Pantone color certification, VESA Display HDR 400 certification, and the more familiar TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification, which protects the user’s eye health while confirming the producti This is due to the anti-fingerprint nano-coating, which is strong and durable while reducing reflectivity, and is extremely effective in preventing fingerprints and water stains.

The most noticeable feature on the B-side is the knob on the upper left corner of the touchpad, which ASUS refers to as the “ASUS DIAL,” a physical creative knob exclusive to the ProArt Creative Nation series of models. Obviously, this is a knob made for designers, editors, and other professionals. Users of the ASUS ProArt Genesis 16 can achieve creativity with precision and ease thanks to a three-button touchpad that supports 1024-level pressure-sensitive pens, further enhancing work efficiency. (More on the creative knob below) The ASUS ProArt Chuang 16 has a plethora of interfaces that can accommodate the peripherals, screens, and other expansion requirements of designers, photographers, and other professional user groups.

The left side of the body is equipped with an HDMI 2.1 interface, two full-featured USB-C 3.2Gen2 interfaces, and a USB-A 3.2Gen2 interface; the right side is outfitted with an RJ45 network port, another USB-A 3.2Gen2 interface, an SD Express 7.0 card reader, and an audio interface. Two USB-A 3.2Gen2 interface support 10Gbps rate; the other two USB-C 3.2Gen2 interface support PD charging and DP video The R9 5900HX is one of AMD’s most powerful mobile processors this generation, based on the Zen 3 architecture, with a 7nm process, 8 cores and 16 threads, a default TDP of 45W, a benchmark frequency of 3.3GHz, and a maximum accelerated clock frequency of 4.6GHz. Simultaneously, the suffix “HX” indicates that this CPU supports overclocking, which can result in a more powerful performance release.

The R9 5900HX single-threaded and multi-threaded scores in the CPU-Z score test have surpassed those of the R7 3700X with 8 cores and 16 threads in the desktop class. In multiple rounds of CineBench R20 and CineBench R23 tests, ASUS ProArttron 16 was able to maintain a stable score. In the 3D Mark CPU Profile test, the ProArttron 16 scores were at the top of all six different thread modes, with the R9 5900HX scoring 7,000 under maximum threads and 6,971 under 16 threads. The maximum threads represent the CPU’s full performance potential when all available threads are used.

This corresponds to real-world usage in heavy multi-threaded workloads outside of gaming, such as movie-quality rendering, simulation, and scientific analysis scenarios, whereas the 16-thread score represents the processor’s capabilities for tasks that require intensive computation, such as digital content creation and 3D rendering, and is an important reference for judging the processor’s productivity in rendering, modeling, and other areas. The maximum thread score and 16 threads can directly compete with the desktop 10th generation Intel Core i7-10700K, while 8 threads, 4 threads, and other scores can compete with the i9-10900K.

We used PC Mark10 to test the theoretical office performance of the ASUS ProArttron 16, and the results are as follows.

The overall productivity level of the ASUS ProArttron 16 is very good, as evidenced by the results. The output in terms of digital content creation is outstanding. In terms of Office software performance, the ProArt Transcend 16 is a piece of cake to load daily office work and can complete daily tasks well.

In terms of graphics, the ProArt Gen 16 uses the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 mobile graphics card, which is a relatively suitable graphics card for the current notebook market. This RTX 3070 is also based on the Abe architecture, has an 8nm manufacturing process, 5120 CUDA units, 8GB GDDR6 memory, memory bit width 256Bit, memory bandwidth 384GB / s, core frequency 780MHz, Boost frequency can reach 1290MHz, and a base power consumption of 90W. The 3D Mark TimeSpy test card score is 9379, the overall score is 9471, the FireStrike graphics card score The RTX 3070 has strong graphics performance, which, while limited when compared to the desktop version, can still help users carry out many professional tasks.

In the V-Ray 5 Benchmark test, the V-Ray can run up to 7689 vsamples, the V-Ray GPU RTX scores at 1385 vrays, and the V-Ray GPU CUDA can reach 962 vpaths.

We also used PugetBench to test the performance of AE, PR, and PS, three productivity software commonly used by designers and photographers, and the results are as follows. PugetBench is a benchmarking plug-in from Puget System that creates test scripts for various productivity software in order to quantify how well the device performs against these software. For example, the Pr test includes complex tests such as video playback, playback after color grading, video export, playback after effects, and export after effects, and results in a benchmark score.

The AMD Raider 5000 series core graphics model lags behind Intel’s 11th generation Core processors in video editing performance due to a lack of appropriate decoding support, but the difference is not significant at the 5900HX level. We also had some experience with the actual productivity software, such as importing 100 RAW photos into LrC software and converting them to JPG format for export, to measure the actual time spent.

The time it took to import Lr was only 4.5 seconds, and the time it took to render and export photos to JPG format was 1 minute and 06 seconds; additionally, the time it took to convert and export 360 pages of PPT to PDF files was only 40 seconds. Overall, the ASUS ProArt Gen 16 excels in the professional realm, with the ability to complete a variety of tasks and serve as a productivity device for users.

The ASUS ProArttron 16 is powered by 32GB DDR4-3200 dual-channel memory and an M.2 NVMe SSD. The ASUS ProArttron 16 has a memory latency of around 88.7ns and a frequency of 46.7GB/s, which is sufficient; using CrystalDiskMark 7.0 to test software read and write speeds, the hard drive continues to read and write at 5725MB/s and sustained writes up to 6GB/s, which is sufficient to run large files, read projects, and complete storage. Users can also form a RAID 0 array with two PCIe 3.04 SSDs, with read speeds of up to 6800 MB/s in RAID 0 mode.

All graphics software, mapping or editing, rendering, and other laptop workloads must be run at full power; heat dissipation is critical. When heat dissipation fails, it can result in software flashbacks, engineering scrap, or burned hardware, which is well worth the risk. ASUS aggressively tunes the ProArttron 16 to ensure the continuous performance release required for heavy workloads.

After a 30-minute single-copy FPU test in full-speed mode at 25°C room temperature, the CPU temperature of the ASUS ProArttron 16 was around 94°C, with a frequency of 4.3GHz and a stable power of 68W or less. It is worth noting that during the test, the CPU frequency was increased to full core and there was no overheating, implying that the full core frequency was achieved with only 68W.

According to engineering reasons, the power consumption of the commercially available version of ProArttron 16 should be around 70W for a single copy of the FPU. In the GPU single-copy test using FurMark software, the GPU temperature of ASUS ProArt Transcend 16 was able to stabilize at around 70°C at 1.05GHz with a power consumption of 110W.

In performance mode, ASUS’s IceCool Pro cooling system can keep the entire machine running at a constant 135W. According to the teardown results, the dual 102-piece wing fans can quickly export heat, and the six heat pipes and even heat sinks cover the two cores of CPU and GPU, as well as heat sinks at each air outlet, allowing ASUS ProArttron 16 to fully exploit its capabilities.

The temperature at the B-side air outlet, on the other hand, is around 36°C. However, the temperature at the air outlet on the B side is high, and the fingers cannot be placed for an extended period of time, so low-temperature burns must be avoided.

Disconnect the power, set the screen brightness to 50%, set the battery mode to energy saving, connect to the network, and run the PC Mark8 working life test in “standard mode” on the system. The battery life is estimated to be around 6 hours. This battery life is much better than the average game book, and it is more than enough to meet the daily out of office requirements. However, it is not recommended that users do not plug in to use, not only in terms of power, but also because not plugging in will limit performance, making it difficult to get the best experience.

Familiar with Ae, Pr, Ps, and other productivity software designer users should have an affinity for the knob, because professional software can make the user’s operation more smooth and delicate, but also more logical to use. Previously, if professional users had this demand, there would be separately optional related products, and ASUS ProArt Chuang 16 is insight into this pain point, for the professional group specially designed creative knob, and for the software to adapt. Currently, the creative knob The knob is adapted for the Adobe family of Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Lightroom Classic, and After Effects to help users precisely control the details of the content.

The interface outside of the software also allows you to change the screen brightness and volume, among other things. In PR, the physical knob allows for quick timeline adjustments, while in LrC, it allows for photo color balance adjustments. According to ASUS, the creative knob supports over 70 functions that can help users’ creative workflow run more smoothly.

Furthermore, ProArt Creator 16 includes a special shortcut key, Customized Key, which can be used in various software to perform different shortcut operations. In the system interface, for example, pressing the Customized Key brings up the ProArt Creator Hub management program, whereas in Ps, pressing the Customized Key enables horizontal flip; in Pr, it supports one-click media export, and so on. ASUS ProArttron 16 also supports the Link to MyASUS function, which allows users to connect their computers to their cell phones to achieve cross-screen collaboration between mobile devices and PCs, file transfer overhead, etc., remote access and retrieval of PC files with mobile devices anytime, anywhere, and remote control of office space is no longer limited.

ASUS ProArt Genesis 16 is a high-targeting professional design notebook. For designers, the quality of this screen is at the top of its class, with high resolution, silky smooth high brush, and accurate color accuracy. ASUS’s good screen can be an important guarantee for their output of high-quality works. The powerful AMD Raider 5000 series standard processor combined with NVIDIA’s powerful RTX 3070 graphics card, large memory as well as high-speed SSD, complete interfaces, strong connectivity, and ProArt’s exclusive knobs are able to provide them with the best assistance in the art creation process.

The machine also passed MIL-STD 810H military standard reliability and durability tests, including extended tests for operation in harsh environments, are able to provide users with a reliable machine. The ASUS ProArt Genesis 16 notebook makes good use of “addition” by bringing such a unique product to the creative design community, which is incredible.
