At CES 2021, Asus showcased the ROG Flow X13, a compact 13-inch gaming laptop.

It’s powered by Nvidia’s GTX 1650 4GB and AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HS processor. Now, we know GTX 1650 is a bit dated right now, especially with the RTX 30 series. Some games today have 1650 as the minimum graphics requirement, such as DOOM Eternal.

But, if you want more, there’s Asus’s external GPU, the XG Mobile. And no, it’s not as big as a desktop computer. It’s small and portable. And it supports up to RTX 3080.

The 1080p 13.4-inch touchscreen comes with 120Hz refresh rate, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and backlit keyboard. The Flow X13 itself can be tilted in 360-degrees, putting it on Stand, Tent, Tablet, or Laptop modes.

In Asus’ website ROG Flow X13 is 3,200 USD, with the XG Mobile included in a bundle. We have no information yet if this product will head over to the country, so stay tuned if it does!
