Zenbook Pro laptops meld elegance and power for on-the-go creatives

Some people only need their laptop for basic office and web browsing tasks. For them, an everyday device with reasonable portability and battery life will suffice. But many of us need our laptops to do so much more. Photographers, architects, filmmakers, animators, and graphic designers all require devices purpose-built for the demands of their professions. For these creators, the new Zenbook Pro laptops deliver essential performance and connectivity in ultraportable, elegant designs that exude a professional aesthetic.

The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED takes center stage

Savvy shoppers have long turned to Zenbooks for their supremely portable designs, effortless performance, and luxurious materials. Breakthrough engineering now allows us to offer professional-level processing power in enviously thin and elegant laptops. Meet the new Zenbook Pro lineup.

The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED headlines the series. Equipped with up to an Intel Core i9-12900H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, this laptop delivers the snappy, responsive performance that creators need in apps like Adobe Premiere Pro and ArchiCAD, and the sheer multithreaded processing muscle to make light work of demanding tasks like project exports.

High-performance components require exceptional cooling to deliver sustained performance. While many of our competitors use low-wattage chips to keep temperatures low, we use our innovative AAS Ultra cooling system to unlock a higher tier of performance. As you open the lid of the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED, a cunning hinge raises the back of the keyboard deck up to 7°, opening a spacious intake for cooling air. Along with the quiet yet powerful ASUS IceCool Pro dual-fan thermal technology under the hood, AAS Ultra enables this laptop to offer a 140W TDP in Performance Mode—all in a portable device that’s equally at home on the set and in the studio.

The rising keyboard offers benefits above and beyond cooling the powerful CPU and GPU. This arrangement keeps the laptop’s all-metal chassis cooler underneath your fingers, and its angled position is more ergonomic for a more comfortable typing experience. And finally, the tilting mechanism directs the sound from the dual tweeters to create a better stereo image for enhanced listening pleasure.

The Zenbook Pro 16X OLED’s stunning display empowers creative work of all kinds. Its 16:10 aspect ratio and 4K resolution across its spacious 16-inch diagonal let you see more of your work at a glance without scrolling. Creators working on color-sensitive projects will appreciate its 100% coverage of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut, and its VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification attests to its ability to reproduce perfect, inky blacks and realistic highlights. With its ultra-low 0.2ms response time, fast action scenes and quickly-moving animation appear super-smooth. Our OLED panels elevate everything you do on your PC—click here to learn more about why your next laptop needs an OLED display.

Innovative design elements make every moment with the Zenbook Pro 16X OLED effortless. The updated ASUS Dial, an intuitive physical rotary controller that gives instant and precise fingertip control over parameters in leading creative apps, streamlines your workflow in Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Lightroom, After Effects, and Illustrator. Check out our guide to learn how to get the most out of this ASUS-exclusive tool—and use the ProArt Creator Hub to customize it to work with just about any other app.

The extra-large touchpad features haptic feedback technology to give you a consistent, premium experience—and it offers NumberPad, as well, an illuminated region of the touchpad that you can toggle whenever you need it. Per-key White-RGB keyboard backlighting, augmented by light bars on either side of the keyboard, enables a variety of smart interactive effects. At a glance, it’ll keep you updated on battery life, notify you of new emails, identify when you’ve toggled Performance Mode, and more.

Finally, broad and plentiful connectivity options streamline everything you do with a PC. A pair of Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports stand ready to connect an external display, recharge the laptop or your other devices, connect high-speed peripherals, and more. An integrated SD card reader makes it easy to access media from your camera. And you’ll find an HDMI 2.1 port and a USB Type-A port, too, so connecting your displays or your full content creation kit is a breeze.

The next-generation ScreenPad Plus in Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a 12.7-inch, full-width secondary touchscreen with support for the latest high-precision styluses, such as ASUS Pen 2.0. The completely redesigned AAS Ultra tilt mechanism raises up the rear of ScreenPad Plus by up to 20mm, tilting it by 12° when the laptop is opened. This positions ScreenPad Plus at the ideal viewing angle for easy cross-screen operation with the main touchscreen, and it also enhances cooling by allowing 38% more airflow than the previous generation.

Exceptional components enable the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED to deliver responsive performance in demanding creative apps no matter where inspiration strikes. The top-end configuration features the flagship Intel Core i9-12900H CPU. With fourteen cores and a Turbo Boost speed of up to 5.0Ghz, it excels at the CPU-heavy tasks common in creative work. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti stands ready for GPU-accelerated apps and tasks. ASUS IceCool tech, with its dual-fan arrangement and the superior air intake offered by AAS ultra,  quietly keeps both components operating at their full potential.
