ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602) – Top 5 Pros and Cons

The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED’s got it all. The device is beautifully crafted, offering striking visuals. It also uses some of the most powerful hardware that’s available, with two Alder Lake H-series SKUs, the Core i7-12700H and  Core i9-12900H. It’s also a beacon of innovation, which we’ll mention when we talk about the design. Since the device is already close to perfect, ASUS is looking to just toss in the 13th Gen Raptor Lake chips as well as the RTX 40-series graphics from NVIDIA when these become available. For now, we have the Core i7-12700H and a 95W RTX 3060, which is still perfect for a Creator machine, taking that the user itself can utilize all the power.

Today we present you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602).

ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602): Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602)

1. Design and build quality

On the outside, the Zenbook looks like a regular clamshell laptop. The aluminum that’s used for its construction gives it a smooth finish and military-grade durability, passing the MIL-STD-810H certification tests. The device does have plenty of heft to it, weighing 2.40 kg and having a profile of 17.8 mm. Opening the lid is possible with one hand. The hinge mechanism props up the keyboard, which detaches from the base, opening space below it for air to enter the cooling setup.

The keyboard is flanked by two speaker grills. While the panel that houses it is pretty thin, the key travel is plenty long, and the feedback is clicky. The touchpad has the NumberPad 2.0 feature, which gives you a NumPad whenever you need it, along with shortcuts to the calculator app. The pad itself isn’t clickable, instead using a haptic motor to mimic clicks. This leads to the entire surface being clickable and uniform. Next to the pad, you get an ASUS Dial, a circular touch-sensitive surface that doesn’t have any moving parts, however, it still spices up your workflow.

2. Display quality

With a 4K UHD+ OLED panel, you get super crispy visuals. The viewing angles are excellent and the panel reaches 383 nits of peak brightness. It fully covers both the sRGB and the DCI-P3 gamuts. The MyASUS app is also able to emulate both gamuts, depending on what work you need to do.

The panel comes calibrated out of the factory, with a dE value of 1.3 in the DCI-P3 gamut and 1.2 in the sRGB gamut.


While there is some PWM usage below 94 nits, the MyASUS app has a Flicker Free dimming option, which eliminates the issue. However, it affects the accuracy, giving it a dE value of 2.2.

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.


Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

It’s also able to squeeze out the max 95W power limit while running cool and running at respectable speeds, even surpassing some gaming devices, like the ASUS TUF Gaming F17 from 2021 and the MSI Pulse GL76 (12Ux).

Comfort during full load

While the fans definitely get loud at full load, the base is really cool, with a hotspot of only 37°C.

4. I/O

The port selection of the device includes one USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 2) port, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a power plug for a 200W power adapter, an SD card reader, an audio jack, and an HDMI 2.1 FRL port, which means less compression when delivering the signal.

1 reason NOT to buy the ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602)

1. Upgradeability

One area where you can fault the laptop is its upgradeability. Despite the larger chassis, it comes with soldered LPDDR5 memory, but you can get up to 32GB of it, which we definitely recommend. For storage, there’s only one M.2 slot that supports Gen 4 SSDs.

Here is our detailed teardown video, which shows how to access the insides of the laptop for repairs and upgrades.
