ASUS Tianxuan 2 Gaming Book is Released, To say, the overall performance of the gaming processor in 2021 is not Core i7-11800H. Among many Core i7-11800H+RTX 3060 gaming notebooks, ASUS Tianxuan series has always been the best in sales. So does the ASUS Tianxuan 2 achieve such a feat? The author believes. That the brand, appearance and additional cultural characteristics are external factors, and the performance of mainstream game play is internal.
In this article, Gadget Pixel will show you the performance of this ASUS Tianxuan 2 to see what it is. whether it can withstand today’s 3A game wave.
Asus Tianxuan 2 is a 15.6-inch regular-sized gaming notebook with a measurement of 359*256*24.3mm and a weight of approximately 2.2KG.
Surface A is painted with a metallic smooth spray paint. Which is surrounded by rivets, which is quite industrial. In the middle is the TX icon unique to the Asus Tianxuan series. In addition to the silver and black we have on hand, there are also two-dimensional green and white options. If you are tired of the same big black plastic game. So consider the young and beautiful appearance of Asus Tianxuan series. This would be a good option.
Open side B with one hand opening and closing. This is a 144Hz refresh rate FHD screen with a peak brightness of 250nits. Which is suitable for daily use and playing games.
The C side is a keyboard with proper key positions, and both the arrow keys and the smaller keyboard are taken care of. Moderate key stroke and comfortable operation. It also supports RGB lighting. Which can be customized in the Control Center, which is quite personal. There is a touchpad under the keyboard.
The D surface is made of plastic material, with a raised design and a honeycomb-shaped air inlet. Which helps to dissipate the heat to some extent.
Asus Tianxuan 2 complete machine has 3 USB Type-A ports, 1 Thunderbolt 4 port, a 3.5mm port, DC power port, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet port. Commonly used network cable ports and USB Type-C ports are on the left side of the fuselage, and the layout is relatively reasonable.
The unique feature of Tianxuan is the addition of a two-dimensional image. This computer has added a lot of images of “Tian Xuan Jie” at the software level. The system also has a built-in cute desktop pet. Which can not only run daily moves, but also display hardware data.
A major upgrade over the Asus Tianxuan 2 is the use of the 11th generation Core i7-11800H. i7 11800H has 2.3GHz base frequency, 24MB L3 cache, 10MB L2 cache, 10nm process technology, ultra-high-density transistors. All of this has poured new blood into the Core 11th generation mobile processors. Therefore, the highest turbo frequency of the i7 11800H has reached 4.6GHz, and the full-core turbo frequency has also reached 4.2GHz. Powerful single-core performance will be more popular in sports.
The 11th generation standard pressure core also includes new features from the U series. Such as native support for PCIe 4.0, integration of Thunderbolt 4, advanced support for the AVX512 instruction set, and so on. Plus, it finally supports 20 PCIe 4.0 channels directly connected to the CPU and 24 PCIe 3.0 channels connected directly to the PCH. Also, the DMI bus bandwidth has been upgraded from the original x4 to x8. Which allows manufacturers to reduce the number of GPU channels. In this case, a PCIe 4.0×4 m.2 slot connected directly to the CPU also played a part in promoting the replacement of hard disks.
In terms of GPU, the Asus Tianxuan 2 is equipped with an RTX 3060 6G graphics card with 90W power consumption. There are also some tutorials on the internet that can unlock 130W full blood power consumption. If you are interested, you can go and operate it.
The configuration of the notebook is one thing, but more importantly, whether the heat dissipation and power supply are adequate. Which may or may not be released in its entirety. Therefore, we disassemble the machine directly to inspect the goods. As can be seen from the picture below, it uses a 4 copper tube dual fan design. While the memory is covered by a heat plate, and the heat dissipation specifications are still good. The battery is the highlight of the Asus Tianxuan 2 with a capacity of up to 90Wh, which is shaped like the first echelon in the game book.
Roasting Machine Running Point
So can it hold the RTX 3060 laptop and the 11th generation H45 Core i7-11800H processor? At room temperature of 24 °C, we turn on the advanced performance mode, and then use the AIDA64 for the single-bake FPU. Firstly, it can reach around 75W. After 15 minutes, the CPU temperature stabilizes at 77 °C, and the power consumption reaches about 43W at this time. The temperature isn’t too high, there should be room for exploration.
Then we use FurMark donuts for single-bake GPU, the whole process can be stabilized at 90W, 79℃.
Next, we run the above two software at the same time to simulate maximum pressure and run a double-bake for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the CPU stabilized at 43W and 91°C, and the GPU stabilized at 90W and 85°C.
In 3DMark, the Time spy GPU running score reached 7737 points, and Fire Strike Extreme reached 9439 points, which can meet the needs of most mid-to-high-quality games.
In R20, it scored 573 points for single-thread and 4208 points for multi-thread, which belongs to the normal performance of Core i7-11800H, which can meet the needs of most high-quality games.
In R23, it scored 1505 points for single thread and 10698 points for multi-thread, which also belongs to the normal performance of Core i7-11800H. I believe it will perform well in the newly launched 3A masterpiece.
The hard drive is Hynix’s OEM solid state drive, with a capacity of 512G, and the speed is quite good. Asus currently rarely continues to use QLC products, which is a great thing for consumers.
The game measurement
From the theoretical performance point of view, Asus Tianxuan 2 has a relatively strong CPU, and the GPU has also been improved, and the power of the CPU and GPU will not be affected under the dual baking. I believe it can also be competent in the game. So let’s first try an e-sports game. We selected five mainstream e-sports games, “League of Legends”, “Rainbow Six: Siege”, “CS:GO” and “Forever Tribulation” for testing. In “League of Legends”, you can run to about 210 frames when laning, and the game experience is very good. “League of Legends” is a CPU-intensive game, which makes Asus Tianxuan 2 very handy.
“Rainbow Six: Siege” has its own Benchmark. It is tested that Tian Xuan 2 can run to 189 frames under the extremely high picture quality of 1080P, and the game experience is excellent.
“Forever Tribulation” is a game that supports NVIDIA Reflex, with lower operation delay and excellent hand feeling. The measured frame can also be maintained at around 107 frames under the highest image quality, and the experience is very smooth.
In “CS:GO”, running BenchMark can reach 330 frames, smooth experience with ultra-low latency.
From the above test of e-sports games, it can be seen that Asus Tianxuan 2 can handle e-sports games with ease, and can make full use of this 144Hz e-sports screen. Next, let’s test games with higher configuration requirements. In “Tomb Raider: Shadow”, we turned on the ultimate picture quality, and the BenchMark score reached 86 frames as soon as the benchmark score was reached, and the experience was quite good.
In the brand new 3A masterpiece “Forza Motorsport: Horizon 5”, with the highest special effects of 1080P, the BenchMark frame rate can reach 94, which is quite suitable for a racing game.
Buy early and enjoy it early. Don’t buy and wait for Epic’s free light chase masterpiece “Control”. After turning on the highest picture quality + highest light chasing + quality DLSS, it can be stabilized at 80-90 frames to play. The experience is great.
“Battlefield 2042” this game is more CPU-intensive, so i7-11800H is currently one of the most suitable processors for playing this game. In 1920*1080 resolution, picture quality + quality DLSS, it can also be stabilized at 80-90 frames, and the experience of the battlefield is still quite good.
Air combat can reach about 90 frames:
Foot combat can reach about 80 frames.
Turn on the high quality in the multiplayer mode of “Halo: Infinite”, and you can still reach nearly 100 frames in the battle. I believe that you can play smoothly in the upcoming campaign mode.
Finally, we test “Call of Duty: Pioneer”. Under high image quality + quality DLSS, the whole process can reach more than 130 frames. Almost all the gaming screens can be run, and the shooting experience is very comfortable.
In general, currently equipped with Sky Selection 2 can play most of the 3A masterpieces smoothly under medium and high special effects, and the light chase game can also run at 60 frames or more. It should be noted that the 6G memory of the RTX 3060 is still relatively tight. If you need to pursue a higher resolution, it may be stretched. Therefore, 1080P is a better choice.
Summary: The importance of CPU is becoming more and more prominent
There is a phenomenon that in the second half of this year, 3A masterpieces will be sold together, but these 3A masterpieces will generally be more CPU-intensive. This is because nowadays 3A masterpieces are increasingly pursuing multiple people and big scenes. And these pursuits put a new test on the performance of the CPU. If you are interested in buying a gaming laptop to play this 3A masterpiece at the beginning of the next generation, then CPU performance may be a priority.
