ASUS has launched a performance laptop, the ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 which is still slim and light. It is one of the first laptop to offer Intel’s new 8th-generation, with six-core Core i9-8950HK processor. It is just 18.9mm thick and weighs 1.86 kg.
ASUS also offers another six-core option, the Core i7-8750H, and a Core i5-8300H quad-core.
For graphics, it has NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. It comes with 4GB of its own GDDR5 video memory. This laptop, with such a graphic processor, along with i9 chip, 4K touchscreen, up to 1TB storage, and 16GB of DD4 RAM, can prove to be the best option for gamers and video editors. As gamers and video editors require more computing power, ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 could be the best option for them.
What’s cool from ASUS is that the ZenBook Pro 15 is still slim. In the 18.9 mm body, there is 4.1 pound chassis with a custom cooling system with twin fans and a trio of heat pipes which are shared by both the graphics chip and the processor.
Battery and Connectivity
According to ASUS, the ZenBook Pro 15’s battery can last up to 9.5 hours. It comes with a fast charge which goes up to 60 percent capacity in just 49 minutes. For connectivity, it comes with dual-band 802.11ac gigabit Wi-Fi, USB-C ports, two Thunderbolt 3, a pair of USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectors, microSD card reader, and HDMI output.
Harman Kardon has developed the sound system of this laptop. It has more oomph than the previous models. According to ASUS, the ZenBook Pro 15’s speakers output 1.4 times and have 1.6 wider frequency response than the previous models. Also, there is a fingerprint scanner available.
According to ASUS, the 15.6-inch display will be available in three forms. One will be a 4K Ultra HD touchscreen, which has 100 percent coverage of Adobe RGB and 95 percent NTSC color. Another one is a Full HD screen, which has 100 percent sRGB color coverage. Also, the last one is a non-touch Full HD. Everything is packed into a Deep Dive Blur aluminum unibody chassis, with rose gold diamond-cut edges. There is no announcement on the pricing for the laptop by ASUS. But, this high-end model with the top portable components packed into a thin and light-weight body will surely be expensive.
