Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus Performance

This time, the Asus ROG Moba 5 series has the same core configuration as the Gunshen 5 series. Which has the appropriate flagship specifications. Battery capacity and fast charging specifications have been improved, and the first Ryzen 9 processor is also highly anticipated. What about specific performance? Let’s take a look at the exam. Prior to testing, as usual, we changed the 3D setting preferred graphics processor to a high-performance NVIDIA processor in the NVIDIA Control Panel. Then opened the Altron Center software to select enhanced mode.

3D Mark Running Test

Then, in the 3D Mark running test, we also compared the historical running scores of some current mainstream CPUs. Compared to the Ryzen 9 4000 series processors, there is a big difference between the Ryzen 9700 series and the 10th-generation Standard Pressure i7. It is also more obvious. The Moba 5 Series is a cost-effective model in the ROG product matrix, and its competition is not to be underestimated.

Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus – GPU Performance

In terms of GPU, Moba 5 Plus uses a 130W RTX3070. Which should be a big improvement compared to the historical model we tested last year. In various tests of the 3D mark, this 130W RTX3070 has shown good results. Even compared to the 140W RTX3070 which Udemix use only on the mechanical revolution Titanium Tantalum. This is not shocking at all. ROG Boost is coupled with the Dynamic Boost 2.0 dynamic acceleration technology of NVIDIA RTX30 series graphics cards. Which can enhance the powerful performance of the RTX3070.

In terms of actual performance, it is necessary to use sports performance to verify. The first FPS online game is PUBG. Which requires a higher frame rate. We tested two sets under absolute high and absolute low presets. At the highest image quality, frame numbers range between 156–182 frames during the flight and parachuting phases. After landing, the number of outdoor frames floats between 118–135 frames. The number of indoor frames floats between 98–112 frames, and the number of frames floating while driving is between 90–105 frames;

The number of frames floats between 200–238 frames, under absolute low image quality during the flight and parachuting stages. After landing, the number of outdoor frames floats between 139–158 frames, and the number of indoor frames floats between 143–166. 108–127 floating between frames; No matter what the picture quality is predetermined. You can avail the high refresh of Asus Moba 5 Plus.

Gaming Performance

After this comes the Red Dead Redemption 2. After entering the game, we select 1080p full screen. The graphics settings drag all options of the menu to ultra high, and the advanced graphics settings are locked by default. Run and receive a built-in benchmark test. 76.8 Average number of frames. And most scenes of the game can reach over 80 frames.

Then there are two light chase game demo tests. In the Light Chase demo of “Bright Memory: Infinite”, we set RTX quality to extremely high and DLSS quality, and the final average number is 65 frames. “Cold” light tracking demo, I don’t know why I can only turn on light tracking. But I cannot turn on DLSS. The final average frame rate is 56. It is worth noting that the GPU is as high as the main screen. At this time as 1950 MHz, but the temperature is only 65 degrees.

For the light discovery part, we chose the game “Metro: Escape”. In games, when light tracking and DLSS are not turned on in ultra image quality. So the average number of frames is 79 frames. When ultra image quality is maintained and light tracking and DLSS are turned on. So the average number of frames is 61 frames. it can be said. That in 1080p resolution, the Magic Pa5 Plus’s hardware performance is sufficient to play the mainstream 3A masterpiece currently on the market. Optical tracking performance is also very good.

Power consumption and heat dissipation

After watching the sports performance, let’s take a look at power dissipation. Before getting the product, I heard. That ROG has upgraded the heat dissipation specifications this time. So when I find it, I can’t wait to open the back cover. The Asus ROG Moba series uses the previously highly acclaimed glacier heat dissipation architecture and is upgraded to version 2.0. Remove the 11 screws on the D side, carefully hunting the buckle from the side, and then gently expose the D shell. Notice the D Shell. Connect the two lower LED strip cables to the motherboard. Do not perform miracles with great force.

After removing it, you can see that the Asus Moba 5 Plus’s heat disorder specification covers dual fans, 6 heat pipes, and 3 heat pipes each in CPU and GPU parts, of which 1 heat pipe is shared . ROG also uses liquid metal to conduct heat. Therefore ordinary consumers should not easily remove the heat dissipation module by themselves.

Heat Dissipation Specifications

CPU temperature is maintained at 84 degrees in Asus rog moba 5 plus

Now that the heat dissipation specifications have been upgraded. So what about the actual power consumption performance? The Udemix also tested a two-round roasting machine to verify. The first is a single-bake FPU for 20 minutes. CPU temperature is maintained at 84 degrees and power consumption can be maintained at 80 W. At this time, the CPU’s main frequency can reach 3.9GHz, and the fan speed is around 6400 rpm. There is only a small amount of heat on the keyboard surface. Which can be called cold hands. The maximum temperature measured is 34.7 degrees.

At the same time, using AIDA 64 and Firmark dual-sack for 20 minutes, the CPU has dropped by one degree to 83 degrees. But the power consumption has reduced to around 54W. The frequency is also reduced to 3.5GHz, the GPU temperature is maintained at around 70 degrees, and power consumption can reach 115W, and with the ROG Boost Dynamic Overclocking technology, the frequency is up to 1600 MHz. Such temperature control and performance release is not easy. However in manual mode, fan noise is still evident. But fan noise in other gears is much better than the previous generation.

By the way, everyone has always been concerned about solid state drives. As noted in previous disarmed displays. The Mob 5 Plus currently uses 1TB PCIe M.2 solid state from Hynex, and is a TLC particle. Which can be verified through a CrystalDiskInfo software query.

The actual reading and writing conducted by the Udemix also used the CrystalDiskmar for testing. The gradual reading and writing of this solid-state hard disk reached 3000+ MB / s, and it was no longer slow.

Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus Appearance and design

After reading the configuration and performance that everyone cares the most. Let’s go back and talk about the appearance of Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus. First of all, this generation of Moba has changed the mold a lot. First, the brushed metal process was changed towards A and replaced with a more delicate and non-fingerprint matte metal material.

The C surface also has a decorative texture with hollow vents and recessed ROG characters. the most important thing is. That the luminous luminous eye canceled by the previous generation may finally shine again. Although it is only a white light.

In a word, pixel design on the A side, textured design with different designs and vents have greatly improved the texture of the entire machine and the sense of lines is more dominating.

Terms of measurement, the size of the ROG Mob 5 Plus is 5% smaller than the previous generation. In terms of color matching, Eclipse Gray, Primary Gray and Punk Powder sports editions are available. Open A side, the hinge part is ROG’s unique Goole Wing hollow design. After lifting, A and B sides will have a part of the hollow on the bottom right. Which looks like the screen is floating, which is very quiet. The maximum opening and closing angle of the screen is 150 degrees. Which can be opened and closed easily with one hand.

Side B adopts a three-sided narrow frame design with a wider chin.

The ROG STRIX logo is printed on the left, and the label sticker with product attributes is attached on the right. There is no camera on the entire B side, and there are thin rubber legs on the top and left and right sides to prevent contact with the keyboard when the cover is closed.


The screen portion uses a 17.3-inch 1920×1080 resolution IPS matte screen. Which has a 300Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, 100% sRGB color gamut, and the Adaptive Sync screen supports tear-proof technology.

Through an AIDA64 query, it has been found. That this panel is from Sharp and the model is LQ173M1JW04. But the product information for this model is temporarily not available on


In terms of color gamut and color accuracy, the Udemix used the X-Rite i1 Display Pro Plus Color Calibration Meter + DisplayCAL 3 software for testing, and it received 99.5% sRGB color gamut, 71.3% AdobeRGB and 74.2% Measured to cover. The DCI-P3 color gamut is a high color gamut screen without compromise;

received 99.5% sRGB color gamut, 71.3% AdobeRGB and 74.2%

In terms of color accuracy, the average delta E is 0.29, and the maximum delta E is 1.1, which is an excellent level. With such a high quality screen, the Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus can provide users with the ultimate experience in gaming and audio-visual entertainment.

The Sea Side has always been the most important part of the Moba series. The Asus ROG Moba 5 Plus adopts a more comfortable touch at the moment, and a special process coating treatment makes the C surface more delicate and smooth without fingerprints. At the same time, due to the 17-inch body, the keyboard also uses a full-size + numeric keypad layout. The first line at the top of the keyboard still retains the most commonly used function keys, and the number is increased from the first 4 to 5.

However, it should be noted that the WASD funnel on the keyboard no longer adopts a translucent design, and the arrow key is only half the size of a key.


The keyboard part does not adopt a sunken design this time. However the key to the Coolingzone keyboard is not as powerful as Kalpana. A slightly curved surface and overstroke technology of 0.15 mm on the surface still ensures a comfortable typing experience, and uses the ROG body. Proper internal heat dissipation design allows users to run games and other high-load computer views, keyboard surface temperature will not be affected at all.

In addition, light-transmitting character keys also support single-key RGB backlighting. The lighting effects, brightness and frequency can be adjusted in the Altron Center, and can also be combined with other peripheral devices with the help of AURA SYNC. The area of ​​the touchpad is relatively large, the layout is on the left side. The surface is made of smooth glass material, is smooth to touch and can be pressed. Tactile sensitivity and pressure response are satisfactory.
