Latest Zenbook Pro 16X OLED from ASUS has more cooling space
At CES, ASUS displayed upgraded general-purpose systems in addition to laptops geared toward gaming and models that provide 3D visuals without the need for glasses. Elden Ring and the like, on the other hand, should still look pretty good on these laptops, depending on how you configure them.
The most recent Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, according to ASUS, is the first item on our list. It can be outfitted with up to a 13th-generation Intel Core processor, a laptop GPU from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series, and 32GB of LPDDR5X DRAM.
According to ASUS, the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602BZ) features a “unique” Intel processor and a Supernova System-on-Module design that allows for more efficient cooling by reducing the size of the motherboard core area by 38%. Additionally, ASUS claims that the additional space for the power components of the graphics unit will result in improved and more stable GPU performance.
This model has an OLED display, as the model’s name suggests. It is a 3.2K HDR touchscreen with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. An auto-tilting keyboard may assist you in selecting the ideal typing position. You’ll also be able to use the ASUS Dial, which should give you better control over apps that encourage creativity.
Additionally, the Zenbook Pro 14 OLED will receive a glow-up. A 2.8K, 120Hz NanoEdge Dolby Vision display with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and Pantone validation for accurate colors is included in the UX6404 model. It has up to a 13th-generation Intel Core processor, a laptop GPU of the GeForce RTX 40 series, a 2TB SSD, and 16GB of DDR5 RAM. In addition to WiFi 6E connectivity and a 76Wh battery, there is a memory slot that can hold up to 32GB SO-DIMM. According to ASUS, all of this was packed into a body that is less than 0.7 inches (1.8 cm) thick and weighs 3.64 lbs (1.65 kg).
Regarding the Zenbook 14X OLED (UX3404), which features a 14.5-inch display that is 2.8K HDR, has a 16:10 aspect ratio, and has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Up to a 13th-generation Intel Core processor, a GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, a 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a 70Wh battery are included in the laptop. Inkwell Gray and Sandstone Beige are the two colors available for the thin and light 14X. The lid of the latter is coated with “a new ecofriendly Plasma Ceramization coating technique that creates a ceramic-like finish and stone-like feel,” according to ASUS.
The all-metal ExpertBook B9 OLED (B9403CVA), on the other hand, is a laptop designed for businesses. “Ecofriendly manufacturing process helps to reduce production materials by up to 29%, and shortens manufacturing time by up to 75% to maximize energy efficiency,” the business asserts. It is also said to be lighter than most laptops with 13 inches.
The most recent ExpertBook B9 has a screen-to-body ratio of 90% and a 14-inch 2.8K display. You can anticipate a number of security features, including NFC login, face login, and a physical webcam shutter, as well as a touchpad that is almost 27% larger than the previous model.
Pricing for any of these models has not yet been made public by ASUS. Between April and June, shipping of the laptops should begin.
