ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (N6506) review – Killer Display, Lasting Battery, Minor Compromises

The ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (N6506) is a device that is suitable for content creation and gaming thanks to its powerful hardware and useful features. The well-known ASUS DialPad is here and as always, it’s built into the touchpad. You can use it while working with Adobe apps such as Photoshop to change the size of the brush and the font, or you may just increase or decrease the volume of the speakers. It looks pretty fancy and in reality, this feature is very handy when you get used to it.

After work, you can play some games with this device. The hardware is modern and up to the standards for a capable multipurpose machine. You can choose between two Intel Meteor Lake-H CPUs and two NVIDIA RTX 4000 GPUs. The most powerful combo for the series is the Core Ultra 9 185H plus the GeForce RTX 4060 (Laptop). There is just one display model but you don’t need more than that (or at least we think so) because it is a 3K (2880 x 1620) OLED panel with a 120hz refresh rate.

The laptop offers a MUX switch which is a typical gaming feature that unleashes the full potential of the GPU when the power adapter is plugged in. The port selection is modern and it has a Thunderbolt 4 port and an SD 4.0 card reader that should be a valuable extra for the artist and the content creators out there. The connectivity options are good (Wi-Fi 6E + Bluetooth 5.3) and you can find many extras in the MyASUS app such as different GPU and fan modes as well as a ”Flicker-Free Dimming” function.

Does the laptop support the installing of a 32GB stick of memory in the sodimm slot or intalling it results in the system not booting up, not recognize the memory or behave strangely? On the zephyrus g14 2022 Asus claims a maximum memory of 32GB but I knew of people reaching 48GB with no problem changing the 16GB stick with a 32GB one.
Thank you in advance.

According to ASUS, the maximum amount of RAM supported is 24GB. However, since the CPU can support up to 96GB, the Vivobook Pro 15 OLED likely wouldn’t have issues running with up to 56GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM (8GB soldered + 48GB in the SODIMM slot).

Thank you for such a comprehensive review. I would really appreciate if you could incorporate the fan noise for a normal workload – web browsing, movies, etc. This is often left out in favor of fan noise at full load, which is seldom relevant.

How would you categorize the fan noise under normal office work, please?

Is the GPU eco mode disabled when the laptop is connected via the power brick? 🙁

With my current asus laptop I usually always have eco mode on even when connected to power to keep my laptop cool (often have it my lap or chest)
