Asus VivoBook Pro N552VW Review

There are many laptops in Asus’ VivoBook family. One of them is the VivoBook Pro N552VW, which has just arrived . This model is a full size laptop. By full size we mean that it has a 15.6 inch screen and a large keyboard accordingly, on the other hand, it is not a foldable or light model. So this model is not one of the hybrid laptops that we have seen and frequently come across recently, let’s say it from the beginning.

We will come to the technical staff and the works of VivoBook Pro N552VW, but first let’s talk about the details that attract attention with its external appearance.

The laptop has a 15.6 inch screen with a matte material. The matte material of the screen means you will get rid of reflections. Apart from the model that we have, the screen offers Full HD resolution, it is also possible to see the 4K option on the shelves.

The keyboard, which lies just below the laptop’s screen, is colored silver. Thus, the keyboard, which creates a contrast image with the black-framed screen, is comfortable to use. The touchpad could be more comfortable. We cannot say that we find it very comfortable to use.

The VivoBook Pro N552VW is not a slim model. The 30 mm thick laptop is also around 2.5 kilograms in weight. The laptop, which tries to look stylish with its interior and exterior structure with aluminum material, looks good, but it does not look very stylish next to the laptop models we have encountered recently.

When we look around VivoBook Pro N552VW, we see that it has a wide connection option. There are 3 USB 3.0 , full-size HDMI , Ethernet port, mini DipslayPort and USB Type-C port. It is also possible to see the optical drive in this model.

One of the highlights of VivoBook Pro N552VW is undoubtedly the speakers. The laptop, whose speakers come to life with IcePower Bang & Olufsen , gives good sound.

Technical staff

Now let’s look at the technical infrastructure of VivoBook Pro. The laptop has Intel Core i7 as a processor . Powered by the i7-6700HQ processor, which was introduced to manufacturers in the third quarter of last year, the laptop operates at a base frequency of 2.60 GHz. With its 4-core structure, the processor working with performance can increase gears up to 3.50 GHz when speed is required .

The laptop, where we see the Intel HD Graphics 530 graphics unit that comes with the processor, is not satisfied with this. Next to it is also the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M . We will talk about the graphics performance that comes with this soon.

8 GB DDR4 is preferred as RAM in VivoBook Pro . Let’s also say that the laptop also has 16 GB RAM different models. You can also do this update if you wish.

The laptop, which has a 128 GB SSD as well as a 1 TB HDD, thus owns both performance and large storage capacity. Finally, let’s say that the device has 802.11ac Wi-Fi capability and now let’s move on to the performance step.

Performance

The model we have of VivoBook Pro works satisfactorily with its gaming performance as well as its general use performance. During the time we spent with the device, the values ​​we got in game performance were very satisfying. Let’s say you can see good performance in today’s new games, especially in Full HD resolution.

VivoBook Pro, which achieved a Geekbench score of around 13 thousand from synthetic tests , also produced 17233 points in the 3D Mark Cloud Gate benchmark test. Well, how is this reflected in games?

In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain , the result we get in the mix of mid / high level graphics settings can reach 60FPS. We see a decline up to 50 FPS in places. Again , the laptop we had the chance to evaluate in XCOM 2 , one of the important games of this period , gave us 29 FPS results at High, the recommended graphics setting of the game. If you adjust the graphics settings a little more, it is possible to reach up to 50 FPS in this game.

So how is the laptop’s battery performance? We performed both real use and video testing on the laptop. Full HD video during the performance of these 3 hours 34 minutes , which results such as a laptop, in real usage scenarios under 3 hours was performed. Let’s also convey that we are based on 50 percent screen brightness and observe web browsing with Netflix.

Summing up

The N552VW model of the Asus VivoBook Pro is a balanced model. Whether you use it for gaming or make it an office PC, it will leave you satisfied. But of course there are some shortcomings, we have just mentioned them to you. In this context, better models than him are of course available on the market, but we recommend that you do not skip this model during the evaluation phase. So, what is the price of VivoBook Pro? You can now find this laptop on the market with a price tag of 5000 TL .

Who Should Buy

If you are looking for both a performance laptop and a platform that can play games, the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VW might be the model you are looking for.
