Thermal - Cooler, quieter and faster!
To keep it cool in all situations, the ASUS IceCool thermal technology in Vivobook 16X uses upgraded heat pipes, and an IceBlade fan that efficiently accelerates heat transfer. The 87-blade fan and impeller are made of a liquid-crystal polymer that means they're lighter and thinner than ordinary fans. In addition, the fan uses a fluid-dynamics bearing that's quieter and has less vibration than an ordinary bearing. The end result is that the mighty CPU can run comfortably at a blistering 45 watts total TDP in Performance mode - with no throttling!

ASUS Antibacterial Guard - 99% bacterial inhibition. Your health safeguarded.
The surface of any laptop harbors thousands of potentially harmful bacteria. To keep your laptop hygienic, it's protected by ASUS Antibacterial Guard - a special surface treatment that keeps the bugs at bay. In fact, Antibacterial Guard has been scientifically proven7 to inhibit the growth of bacteria8 by more than 99% over a 24-hour period, ensuring the surfaces9 of your laptop clean and sanitary for longer and reducing the spread of potentially harmful bacteria via contact.
- Proven 99% bacterial-inhibiting effect
- ISO 22196 tested
- At least 3 years of lasting protection
ASUS Antibacterial Guard
Without ASUS Antibacterial Guard a sample of 10,000 bacterial cells grew to 28,000. Performing the same test with Antibacterial Guard saw the count reduced to just 16 - a growth restriction of more than 99%. Our test adheres to ISO 221968, and involves both E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
All bacteria can be classified by Gram staining into Gram positive or Gram negative, named after bacteriologist Hans Christian Gram. The ISO 221968 test defines Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli respectively as Gram positive and Gram negative. Many industries choose these two bacteria as test targets - and it is these that are tested against ASUS Antibacterial Guard.
Antibacterial silver ions
The ASUS Antibacterial Guard treatment consists of positively-charged silver ions and is durable enough for at least three years of normal usage10. Household cleaning products and agents such as alcohol wipes and soap water won't easily wear away the silver-ion surface treatment, ensuring ASUS Antibacterial Guard's long-lasting bacterial-inhibiting effect.
