The Asus FX570Z is one of the most sought after computers on, certainly because of its price below € 700. So it was time to see what he has in his stomach and if he really deserves your attention.

Our review


The Asus FX570Z is not a much talked about computer. However, it is one of the most viewed by readers of our site. It seems to attract your interest thanks to its attractive technical characteristics (AMD Ryzen 5 processor and GTX 1050 graphics chip) and its attractive price (less than 700 €). But watch out for the trap.


Plastic, It's Fantastic! On this chassis, Asus chose all poor quality plastic. What it gains in lightness, it loses in design, the plastic giving it a cheap patent appearance. In addition, the grainy plastic cracks under the fingers and does not seem to be rock solid.

Visually, Asus tightens a brushed surface on the hood. However, the manufacturer adds a touch of originality with a turquoise border of the most beautiful effect which saves the picture a little. However, the Asus FX570Z has nothing to stand out from the competition.

This model has a keyboard far from being a success, with a fairly short stroke and an unpleasant typing return, even if the typing remains relatively precise. This mediocre keyboard is however correct compared to the touchpad, whose cursor on the screen is often lost during user operations and which squeaks with each press.

The connection is very correct, since the PC offers a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet and a microSD card reader, all this in addition to the traditional mini-Jack socket .

Using a screwdriver, it is possible to open the PC. However, it only opens on the side of the keyboard and does not leave much amplitude to access the components; unless you remove the plugs connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. A perilous operation to be reserved for very experienced users. It is then possible to add a 2.5 inch SSD or RAM.

During our usual test protocol (Metro Last Light benchmark for one hour), the Asus FX570Z never exceeded 37 ° C on the surface. As for the noise, it remains relatively discreet (40 dB (A)), which is perfectly fine in play. The breath is therefore audible, but not very annoying.


The 15.6 inch TN panel has a definition of 1,920 x 1,080 px. The screen / front ratio is low (only 73%), but it is far from the main problem of this PC.

contrast 290: 1 Delta E 12.2 temperature 12 200 K

During our visit to the lab, the FX570Z panel delivered very poor results. It is one of the worst screens in our columns. The contrast measured by our probe drops to a paltry 290: 1. The temperature rises to 12,200 K, very far from the video standard (6,500 K). The screen therefore draws severely towards blue. The average Delta E was measured at 12.2, which shows colors displayed very far from reality. Upon closer inspection, no screen color is true to the original color.

The maximum brightness is not terrible either and is limited to 230 cd / m², which does not facilitate outdoor work. The remanence is for its part correct (measured at 8 ms) - TN screen requires.

So we have the impression of looking at a catastrophic screen that is ten behind. Just watching a slightly dark video is a real ordeal.


The Asus FZ570X is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 2500UI processor (4 cores, 8 threads, frequencies ranging from 2 to 3.6 GHz) supported by 8 GB of RAM and has a 512 GB SSD. Solid characteristics which bring good power, without sparking either.

During our usual test protocol (video editing, photo editing, file compression, 3D calculation), the Asus PC reached the score of 71 on our scale of values, an honorable score. It is thus neck and neck with other models on the same price segment, such as the Huawei Matebook D. The FX570Z can therefore accomplish a wide variety of tasks in good conditions, but may find itself struggling on heavy video editing or advanced photo editing.


The FX570Z has an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (2 GB) graphics card which brings a little graphics power to the PC. However, that doesn't make him a gaming PC either. During our usual test protocol (settings in Ultra mode, definition in 1,920 x 1,080 px, vertical synchronization disabled), here are the results obtained on the sequences of our test sets:

Metro Last Light: 47 fps Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 fps Civilization VI: 32 fps Assassin's Creed Origins: 26 fps Far Cry 5: 22 fps Star Wars Battlefront 2: 33 fps The Witcher 3: 23 fps

Very average results as is. Nevertheless, by cutting a little on the quality of the graphics - by putting them on "medium", for example -, the player can easily go beyond 40 fps on the most recent games.

Mobility / Autonomy

With its weight of 1.96 kg, the Asus FX570Z is not really designed to be transported everywhere, even if its plastic chassis brings it lighter than aluminum. Its 15 inch format allows it to find a place in a large bag.

Autonomy is disappointing. During our usual test protocol (Netflix in Chrome, brightness set to 200 cd / m², headphones plugged in), the PC shut down after 4 h 8 min. A disappointing score which places it below the market average in this segment.


On the speaker side, the FX570Z tried to save the furniture with pre-installed software (AudioWizard). Once the Music profile is activated, it offers balanced sound and intelligible voices. Note also a controlled distortion ... and that's the least he could do, given the ridiculous power of the speakers. Indeed, they emit a sound so weak that it becomes inaudible in a somewhat noisy environment. In addition, these speakers are placed in the front, in the corners, the worst possible placement on a laptop, the sound being very far from the screen and muffled by the surface on which the PC is placed.

The headphone jack displays very good lab results. Maybe it just lacks a bit of power.


The Asus FX570X has a very correct configuration at a very attractive price. However, the sacrifices made on the screen, the speakers, the keyboard and the autonomy are too important to hoist this laptop at least in the market average. We do not recommend it.
