ASUS Malaysia Announces Innovative Zenbook Lineup at the 2022 ASUS Zenbook Series Grand Launch
Asus has unveiled the latest range of ZenBook laptops, and this year they are all equipped with new OLED displays that deliver deep blacks (the pixels don’t even turn on !) and vivid colors. The pack leader is the new ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition, which is an exclusive special edition with a unique design that commemorates the anniversary of the first ASUS laptop in outer space.
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition
Exclusive to the Space Edition is its futuristic ZenVision smart display, a 3.5-inch OLED companion display mounted externally on the lid. This can show customizable messages, themes and animations, allowing the user to give those around them a window into their lifestyle.
Built to withstand the rigors of space travel, the Space Edition complies with the ultra-demanding US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols, so it is capable of withstanding extreme vibration which is 4 times more than our standard Military Grade durability. Furthermore, it is able to operate in extreme climates, above and beyond the Military Grade capabilities. The Space Edition can resist and function in bitter cold conditions of – 24°C to blistering hot environments up to 61°C.
It gets up to a 12th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 H-series processors and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, 16GB RAM, a PCIe® 4.0 x4 SSD, and WiFi 6E.
There’s also an expansive 16:10, 2.8K OLED 90Hz PANTONE® Validated touchscreen display with True Black 500-certified visuals, a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.
ZenBook 14 Duo OLED
The new Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a 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 an AAS Ultra auto-tilting design that improves both cooling and ergonomics.
In specs you get up to a 12th Gen Intel® CoreTM i7 12700H processor and a creator-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU with an 85-watt combined TDP (that’s good for the size).
For the display, the 2.8K OLED HDR 16:10 main Dolby Vision touchscreen has a 120 Hz refresh rate, an upgraded peak brightness of 500 nits, PANTONE Validated color accuracy, and a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut, as well as TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.
Zenbook Pro 16X OLED
The most powerful (and biggest) of the bunch, it’s a no-compromise creator laptop with innovative design features that 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® CoreTM i7 12700H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTXTM 3060 Laptop GPU, with a combined TDP of 140-watts!
For visuals, the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is equipped with a 16:10 16″ 4K OLED HDR 60 Hz 550-nit Dolby Vision® touchscreen that’s PANTONE® Validated for industry-standard color rendering, a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut, and is VESA DisplayHDRTM 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.
Zenbook 14 OLED
This would be the mainstream model. The new Zenbook 14 OLED is an elegant and lightweight 14-inch laptop packed with a high-capacity 75 Wh battery, promising long hours in the field without any charger dependencies.
Available with 12th Generation Intel® CoreTM i7 P-series processor (UX3402), it aims to meet the requirements of the Evo laptop standard that Intel set. Following its more powerful siblings, the ZenBook 14 OLED comes with an expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED NanoEdge 90Hz display and Harman Kardon-certified, Dolby Atmos® speakers. The high components are housed in a compact chassis that includes a full set of I/O ports and passes the demanding U.S. military-grade MIL-STD-810H durability tests.
The new-generation Zenbook 14 OLED comes in 2 new color options: Aqua Celadon or Ponder Blue. A Kintsugi-inspired design based on traditional Japanese craftsmanship incorporating our new monogram logo adorns the lid.
