Redesigned for performance

The 2022 Zenbook Pro and Zenbook S series of premium laptops all feature a completely new ‘modern Zen’ look, giving them an uncluttered, sophisticated appearance, with new details such as stepped diamond-cut edge highlights and the new ASUS monogram ‘A’ lid logo. Continuing the Zenbook tradition, the emphasis is on elegance and portability combined with class-leading performance. 

The most powerful Zenbook ever: Zenbook Pro 16X OLED

The flagship model in the new line-up is Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, a no-compromise creator laptop with a wealth of innovative design features all designed to aid on-the-go creativity, including the AAS Ultra mechanism for maximum performance. The outstanding power and performance of Zenbook 16X OLED is packed into a compact 2.4 kg unibody — CNC-machined for solidity from super-tough aerospace-grade 6000-series aluminum alloy — that’s just 16.9 mm slim, so it’s easy to get creative on the move.

The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is an NVIDIA Studio validated laptop, powered by up to a 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9 12900H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ 3060 Laptop GPU, Zenbook Pro 16X OLED delivers extreme mobile performance. The high-performance components at its heart need to be cooled effectively in order to reach their full potential. This starts with the new ASUS IceCool Pro cooling system, which uses two quiet IceBlades fans, each with 97 3D-curved blades. These cool the vapor chamber and the 5 mm heat pipe from the CPU and GPU, and the hot air is vented efficiently to the exterior via the new AAS Ultra mechanism, with its 14.5 mm lift that also tilts the keyboard by an ergonomic 7°. The result is that the CPU and GPU can run at up to a 140 W combined TDP in Performance mode without throttling, and can run quieter than 40 dB in Standard mode. The high-capacity 96 Wh battery provides up to 10 hours of autonomy to ensure Zenbook Pro 16X OLED will get through even the most demanding work days.

For stunning visuals, Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is equipped with a world-leading 16:10 16″ 4K OLED HDR 60 Hz 550-nit Dolby Vision® touchscreen that’s PANTONE® Validated for industry-standard color rendering, has a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut, and is VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500-certified for the deepest blacks. 

Other innovative and upgraded features include the all-new White-RGB ASUS Intelligent Lighting System that enables smart interactivity such as visual alerts for power or performance status; the ASUS Dial rotary controller for precise fingertip control of creative apps; and an enlarged touchpad with haptic feedback for click-anywhere convenience. 

Dual displays, evolved: Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED

The new Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a powerful and compact dual-screen creator laptop that’s also the world’s first 14.5-inch 2.8K 120 Hz OLED laptop. It features a bigger and brighter next-gen 12.7-inch ScreenPad Plus secondary touchscreen, combined with the AAS Ultra auto-tilting design that improves both cooling and ergonomics.
