A Chromebook for gaming? Yes, ASUS is promoting its new ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 in this manner. The new notebook is aimed towards gamers, notably those interested in cloud-based gaming, and is powered by AMD’s Ryzen 5 chipset.
The Taiwanese manufacturer’s latest Chromebook, the ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 has been released. The new Chromebook is equipped with AMD Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs and is meant to support cloud gaming via Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now. Asus emphasized features like orange backlighting around the WASD keys and their proprietary Wi-Fi Stabilizer, which it says will set it apart from the competition for online gamers. The ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 has a 2-in-1 form factor and a 360-degree hinge, allowing you to fold the keyboard flat and use the touch and stylus-enabled display.
The ASUS Chromebook Flip CM5 costs $499 and features a 15.6-inch IPS 1080p touch screen with 250 nits of brightness and a 178° viewing angle. The screen may be folded backward to use the device as a tablet or in tent mode, and a USI stylus, which must be purchased separately, is supported. When in laptop mode, the ergo lift hinge raises the keyboard for a more comfortable typing experience.
The Ryzen 5 3500C processor is combined with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB PCIe M.2 SSD. A 4GB RAM variant with an AMD Ryzen 3 3250C processor and 64GB of eMMC storage is also available. While they aren’t exactly gaming specs, they’ll suffice if you’re streaming games via platforms like Stadia and GeForce Now, which the device supports.
ASUS has improved the gaming aesthetics by adding an orange accent to the WASD keys, power button, and volume rocker, as well as a Harman Kardon audio system and Wi-Fi stabiliser technology that filters out interference. The chiclet keyboard is backlit, but no mention of RGB illumination, which would have been a wonderful bonus.
