ASUS just announced its latest breed of Zenbook Creator laptop for the on-the-go creative multitasker, the all-new Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED.
Visual precision like no other
Its 14.5-inch 2.8K 120Hz OLED NanoEdge touchscreen has an expansive 16:10 aspect ratio. This offers an immersive visual workspace. It’s also PANTONE Validated to ensure accurate color grading and printed outputs. It’s also VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified to render ultra-realistic detail in even the darkest scenes. Cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut also delivers ultra-vivid colors. The high 120Hz refresh rate and 0.2 ms response time gives a smoother-than-ever experience. The display is also complimented by Dolby Vision and Atmos technologies for the best cinema audio and visual experience.
To keep the user’s eyes comfortable and safe, the display is also TÜV Rheinland certified for low blue-light emissions.
Next-gen ScreenPad Plus
The next-generation ScreenPad Plus with AAS Ultra is a 12.7-inch, full-width secondary touchscreen. It supports the latest high-precision styluses such as the ASUS Pen 2.0, which is included in the box. The display allows efficient and more comfortable workflow for nitty-gritty operations. This includes image touch-ups, digital calligraphy, animation, and graphic design. It also allows more seamless productivity-related tasks such as notetaking, during virtual meetings or taking down creative ideas during brainstorming sessions. The AAS Ultra also raises the rear of ScreenPad Plus and tilts it by 12 degrees when the laptop is opened. This creates a seamless and optimized viewing angle for easy cross-screen operation.
ScreenPad Plus is now made even better with the new ScreenXpert 3 software. Built-in apps, such as App Switcher and App Navigator, can now be used with external displays. ScreenExpert 3 also has a Control Panel feature that allows control of various Adobe application tools. This gives a more precise and intuitive creation and editing experience. Users can manipulate brush size, saturation, opacity, and the like with Dial, Button, Slider, and Scroll controls. Control Panel is fully customizable and works with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro, and After Effects, with more on the way.
Taking content creation to the max
The Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is an Intel Evo-certified laptop that’s built to meet the demands of creative entrepreneurs and on-the-go professionals. It comes with the flagship 12th Gen Intel i7-12700H processor, tested to handle intensive creative workloads. The powerful CPU perfectly matches the studio-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics. It’s also packed with 16GB of RAM and an ultrafast 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. This ensures no memory and storage bottlenecks could slow the user’s creative process. Plus, its high capacity 75Wh battery can run up to 9.5 hours of work.
For a more cohesive create-and-work ecosystem, the laptop is equipped with full I/O ports for every need. The dual 40 Gbps Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports support fast charging and 4K external displays. It also has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port and a high-speed HDMI 2.1 port. Lastly, the latest performance SD Express 7.0 card readers ensures ultrafast file transfers, and the audio combo jack makes communications easy.
To ensure that the laptop reaches its full potential, it comes with an exclusive ASUS IceCool Plus cooling system. This uses two quiet IceBlades fans with up to 97 3D-curved blades that cool the two 8mm heat pipes form the CPU and GPU. It is complemented by the 38% more hot air vented to the exterior of the new AAS Ultra mechanism.
