ASUS ZenBook UX303UA Review - The design used in the ASUS UX303UA, we have seen more than once. The overall appearance of the model within the series Zenbook (the version without the glass screen cover and top coating) has not changed over the years. The first version, it was carved from a single piece of aluminum chassis and top covers the screen.
Maximum thickness of UX303UA is 19.2 mm-not quite what he expected to get from ultrabook. However, the model does not feel great and very much in accordance with the term "ultraportable", including mass at 1.45 kg and small electrical wires.
On the left bank are the two USB 3.0 ports and a memory card reader SD/SDHC/SDXC | MMC from the opposite side, you can see other USB 3.0 full-size HDMI 1.4, mini DisplayPort 1.2, connector 3.5 mm jack power, audio for headphones and a microphone and low cost indicators.
Use the supplied adapter, the user can access the network connector RJ-45 and D-Sub analog (VGA). The first works via USB 3.0, and the second is through the mini DP.
UX303UA is mainly used aluminum — from the frame even the screen. Plastic items if you have the greatest hidden from the user (of course, with the exception of the keyboard keys). The material body is very practical, while beginning a laptop easier than plastic models. The largest number of prints hand remains on the surface of the polished lid with the pattern.
In terms of color (Pink gold rose gold), then, to our surprise, turns out to be not so rich in photographs on the official website of ASUS and in various online publications and so it was not confusing the male part of the editorial team. You can safely.
Among the items that have been replaced: RAM, a 2.5-inch HDD/SSD drive (depending on the modification) and wireless module. They are all covered with foil or something like that, which not only provides protection of electronic components, but also their better cooling due to heat transfer at the bottom of the notebook. For the rest, nothing interesting and informative-a standard layout for many Zenbook with a full-sized SATA drives.
Nominal frequency of the processor dual-core x 86 Core i5-6200U in hero is 2.3 Ghz. Supports Hyper-Threading and TurboBoost. In the latter case the frequency can automatically rise up to 2.8 Ghz with a burden on one core and up to 2.7 Ghz under high load on two Cores with proper cooling. But UX303UA the last digit is often stored in the 2.4 GHz, it's not bad too.
Processor for rules 14 nm and belongs to the low voltage series CPU — the maximum TDP is 15 watts. With increasing frequency the maximum possible and high computational load on the system that allows the emergence of thermal load up to 25 Watts (called configurable TDP-up). The volume of the L3 Cache is 3 MB. Minimum frequency at which the processor runs at idle or when installing the "economy" mode-498-500 MHz, which allows you to get a very decent level of autonomy. But even with the CPU frequency variable reasons to complain about the battery in the case with no UX303UA.
As graphics solution supports integrated graphics processor Intel HD Graphics 520 without its own dedicated memory. It consumes resources shared DDR4 DDR3 memory, and frequency series Sandy Bridge in the range 1000-1050 Mhz, which also depends on the quality of core temperature and cooling. The stars of the heavens because the Executive 24 blocks this GPU is not enough, but to get started and get quite playable FPS rate in the game about 2014 year with lowest setting maybe it fairly.
