A second screen is an invaluable tool for creators of all kinds. That extra screen space is great for looking up information, keeping an eye on email, arranging the control windows for your productivity or content creation software, or just playing a YouTube video, all without disturbing your primary workspace. Folks have long connected external displays to their laptops for easier multitasking, but this arrangement kept them tied to their desks. With its integrated second screen, the original ZenBook Pro Duo freed creators to work wherever and whenever inspiration struck. Now, we’re ready to empower these artists even further. Armed with a host of refinements, the ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 makes dual-screen computing on the go easier and more powerful than ever.
The ScreenPad Plus rises to the occasion
Our journey to improve and refine the ScreenPad Plus begins with a big change. As you open the lid of the refined ZenBook Pro Duo, a sturdy new hinge system raises the secondary ScreenPad Plus display towards you. This places the screen at a more natural viewing angle so that it appears bright and readable. It also aligns the top edge of the ScreenPad Plus with the bottom of the primary display for a seamless experience as your eyes transition from one screen to the other.
This unique tilting mechanism also has performance benefits. As it opens, it exposes broad vents for the cooling system to draw in plenty of fresh air. The exceptional airflow this arrangement creates keeps the laptop’s components humming along at comfortable operating temperatures for high sustained performance.
As much as the new hinge adds to the usefulness and performance of the ZenBook Pro Duo, it doesn’t add more weight or heft to the machine. In fact, this year’s model is both thinner and lighter than the original. So take it along with you to the coffee shop, library, or airport. It’s easy to pack and it won’t weigh you down.
The ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED reaps the advantages of a year of innovation
A handy second screen built into the base of a laptop makes sense for all kinds of users, but it’s especially practical for creators. It’s a prime location for the interface panels of your preferred software, browser windows full of documentation, and messaging apps you use to stay in touch with your team. In addition to its refined ScreenPad Plus, the ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED UX582 boasts a vivid OLED panel for the main display and all the powerful supporting components that creators demand for swift realization of their visions.
Exceptional performance is literally under your fingertips with the ZenBook Pro Duo. Up to an eight-core, 16-thread Intel Core i9 processor supplies the balance of single-threaded and multithreaded processing power that’s crucial for maintaining your flow during creative work. That processor has up to 32GB of RAM to draw upon, a pool big enough to handle large projects with ease. Since so many creative apps can take advantage of the computational prowess of GPUs, we equip the ZenBook Pro Duo with up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics. 1TB of PCIe SSD storage provides plenty of space for high-resolution assets and projects.
We pair the 4K ScreenPad Plus with a 15.6” 4K primary display. It’s an OLED panel with excellent contrast and vivid colors, and it’s PANTONE Validated for out-of-the-box color accuracy. It covers 100% of the wide DCI-P3 color space that’s common for today’s cinematic content. With its high resolution, accurate colors, and broad color gamut coverage, it’s a perfect display for creative work of all kinds. Both the main screen and ScreenPad Plus offer stylus support with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity, so either work great as a canvas for freehand digital art.
New ScreenXpert 2 tools refine the experience
Owners of the first-gen ZenBook Pro Duo appreciated how the convenient ScreenXpert software tools let them get the most of their laptop’s dual-screen layout. New tools in our ScreenXpert 2 suite make it easier than ever to take advantage of the ScreenPad Plus. This updated control center lets you launch any apps you add with just a couple taps. Just add shortcuts for your favorite programs like Microsoft Word and Outlook or Adobe Photoshop, and you can open them in an instant without cluttering up your desktop. Moving apps and windows from the primary display to the ScreenPad Plus or vice versa is now as simple as a flick of your finger. Want to use the entire ScreenPad Plus as a wide, comfortable touchpad? Tap it with three fingers to trigger Touchpad mode.
We also enhanced the ScreenPad Plus’s multitasking capabilities. The new App Navigator represents all open apps and windows as tiles and lets you slide them around to decide which are visible on which screen. If there’s a group of apps that you often have open at the same time—office software, your preferred web browser, and an email app, perhaps—you can assign them all to a task group. Whenever you want to open those apps, just tap on the name of the task group in the launcher and they’ll all launch in the positions where you placed them.
The upgraded ScreenXpert suite also has some special functions for users of creative apps like Adobe’s Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, After Effects, and Premiere Pro. We’ve created a custom control panel for these apps that gives you powerful touchscreen controls for important functions. Just place virtual controls like sliders, dials, and buttons on the interface and link them to the software functions you use most. We’re working to make even more apps compatible with this feature, too.
