After going through a long research and development process, ASUS ROG introduced the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301), a gaming laptop with the latest detachable design. Thanks to its detachable design, the ASUS ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) also holds the title of being the most powerful gaming tablet in the world.
Compact Like Most Detachable Laptops

As a detachable laptop, the main body of the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) consists of not only the main components such as the motherboard, CPU, GPU, SSD, and memory, but also the screen. This laptop keyboard is also designed separately as an additional accessory. Coming with a 13-inch screen, the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) measures 12mm in thickness and weighs 1.1kg.
Similar to the typical detachable product line, such as the Microsoft Surface, the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) also has a “kickstand” on the back of the main body. If you want to use it as a laptop, you can connect the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) keyboard to the bottom of the body. The installation process is very easy because it uses a magnetic system with a connection via a pogo pin so it is very durable.
Powerful Like a Gaming Laptop

ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) features a High Performance 12th Gen Intel® Core™ CPU, up to Intel Core i9-12900H to be exact, which allows every command to be executed efficiently and quickly. The new configuration can also run better on Windows 11 which is also the operating system used in ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301).
As a laptop (and also a tablet) for playing games, ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) certainly must be equipped with a powerful GPU. This time ASUS ROG managed to embed the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3050 GPU into this detachable device. Although it is not the most powerful gaming-class GPU, its presence is still extraordinary considering the very compact design of the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301).
Innovative Cooling System

ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) uses a special vapor chamber in its cooling system. Thanks to the use of a vapor chamber, the cooling process of the main components in the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) can be carried out actively or passively. ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) also uses the new Arc Flow Fan which has a dedicated 84 blades. The design minimizes turbulence so that air can flow better and cooling is more optimal.
In the 3DMAMark Stress Test without using ROG XG Mobile, ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) can withstand GPU operating temperatures on average 71.44⁰C. Meanwhile, the CPU's operating temperature is on average 64.97⁰C, which is very low for a very compact 13-inch detachable laptop.
The cooling system on the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) is also equipped with an anti-resonance design that makes the fan spin much quieter. The ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) fan module also features a Self Cleaning 2.0 system where dust and particles can be blown out and not trapped in the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) cooling system.
Portable Console or Powerful Tablet?

ASUS ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) is not just an ordinary gaming laptop because it has functions and components like a gaming laptop, but its use is more than just a laptop. Since the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) is a detachable 2-in-1 laptop, it can also function as a tablet, even as a portable console.
Very fast performance for a detachable laptop, making modern games playable on ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) very well. Even in some scenarios its performance can beat laptops that carry a larger body. All thanks to the combination of a powerful cooling system and the overall innovative design of the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301).
Although the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) cannot carry a battery with a capacity as large as other gaming laptops due to space limitations. However, the ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) was able to last up to more than 5 hours 30 minutes in testing using PCMark 10 Battery in modern office mode. You don't need to worry because ROG Flow Z13 (GZ301) already supports the USB Power Delivery feature up to 100W via the provided USB Type-C port.
