Just a few months in the past, we reviewed the ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425. That was the 10th Gen Intel Core chip. However nearly 2 months after that, we now have the brand new refreshed model of the ZenBook 14 UX425, now geared up with the brand new 11th Gen Intel chip, dubbed Tiger Lake.
All the things else stays the identical, however we’ll do one thing completely different this time.
So, as a fast recap – let’s undergo the entire elements of the ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425 first. This laptop computer is claimed to the world’s thinnest 13- or 14-inch laptop computer respectively that has a full set of I/O ports. The ports are nonetheless the identical, and nonetheless doesn’t include an audio jack.
The general design is identical – an all-metal construct with a supremely lovely lid and nonetheless has the concentric circles rippling out from the ASUS brand on the lid. Identical to its 10th Gen counterpart, the concentric circles are very seen to the eyes, however very shallow and might’t precisely be felt with our fingers. And it nonetheless catches fingerprints like a stray magnet.
The display continues to be lovely as heck – no complaints right here. 1080p in decision with nice colours and respectable sufficient brightness for use outdoor underneath daylight.
Each the keyboard and trackpad are as nice as the sooner model. The keyboard continues to be top-of-the-line that I’ve used on a laptop computer to this point – it’s clicky and nonetheless very stunned by the truth that this keyboard has nice journey distance regardless of this laptop computer is so skinny.
The trackpad – nonetheless huge, and nonetheless has the NumberPad function too if you wish to do some fast maths. It’s an incredible trackpad and to date, I’ve nothing to complain in regards to the trackpad in any respect.
The most important and solely distinction between this and the sooner model of the ZenBook 14 UX425 is the chip. The brand new Intel Core i7-1165G7 is a lot extra highly effective in comparison with the Intel Core i7-1065G7.
I imply, the newest 11th Gen Intel chips are much more highly effective in each CPU and GPU in comparison with the 10th Gen chips. It’s simply an enormous leap! Watch the video on the prime of this evaluate as a result of we did attempt each Genshin Affect and GTA V on the newest Intel GPU driver – which improved the efficiency by lots.
Additionally, a fast observe – the ZenBook 14 UX425 runs at about 19W or 20W more often than not – which continues to be not the utmost 28W of the Core i7-1165G7. And since this laptop computer can’t run the chip at its most wattage anyway – I like to recommend getting the Intel Core i5-1135G7.
Critically although, we’re not going to do any critical gaming on this laptop computer anyway – so avoid wasting cash as a result of the price hole between the Core i5 and Core i7 models is a whopping RM700. Different elements of the laptop computer appear to stay the identical and that’s why I feel the RM700 premium to get the Core i7 model is unjustified.
The identical costs apply for the 13-inch model too, by the best way.
|ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325||ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425|
|Intel Core i5-1135G7||RM3,999||RM3,999|
|Intel Core i7-1165G7||RM4,699||RM4,699|
Both means, it’s nonetheless a unbelievable laptop computer if you may get over the truth that this ZenBook 13 and ZenBook 14 doesn’t have an audio jack.
